The women’s field hockey team lost to Neumann University on Saturday, Oct. 17 with a final score of 3-2.

With the opening of Neumann’s brand new turf field, the Cavs sought revenge after the upset of being defeated by the Knights in the Colonial States Athetic Championship game last year.

After that game, the Cavs learned that the Knights were a powerful team and they’d have to work hard to beat them during this season.

“I feel that it was a huge upset and that we could have beaten them had we not gotten the penalty stroke against us,” Lexus Ujobai, sophomore criminology major, said.

The penalty stroke brought the score up to 3-0 when the Cavs finally retaliated with two goals.

Junior communication major and defensive player Allie Rodolico scored the first goal for the Cavs. Sophomore political science major Lauren Alessi followed up with another goal to bring the score higher.

With only a few minutes into the second half, Neumann began their three-goal-streak.

The Neumann Knights were able to hold Cabrini from scoring any goals until late into the second half of the game. Although the Cavs worked together, they were unable to overcome the Knights.

Cabrini goalie Caitlin Donahue had an impressive 12 saves throughout the entire game.

It was also sophomore exercise science major Stephanie Companaro’s first game back from a stress fracture in her shin.

Although freshman early education major Lindsey Atzert started the game in Companaro’s place, when Companaro was put in halfway through the first half, fans could recognize her will to win.

It was a tough game, but the Cavs took things to the next level in the second half making it a close game.

“It was a tough loss and our girls worked hard to bring the score back up, but in the end there just wasn’t enough time,” Janine Zizzamia, sophomore exercise science major, said.
