The Cabrini roller hockey team fell to 0-2 on the season with a 7-3 loss to Neumann University on Sunday, Nov. 2. The teams started off with even play but Neumann ultimately pulled through for the win.
The game started off quiet, but just before the halfway mark, Neumann tallied the first of the game.
Cabrini answered back quickly with a goal from senior Anthony Sestito. The Knights ultimately answered again to end the first period, 2-1.
In the second period, the Knights broke out firing three goals. Freshman Clay Anders answered with one for Cabrini to end the second, 5-2.
In the third, Anders put his second of the game in the net, not to be outdone by Neumann’s final two goals.
Junior goalie Chris Treat stopped 31 out of 38 shots, posting an overall save percentage of 0.816.
The game concluded with a final score of 7-3 with Neumann University coming out on top.
“Certainly not the start we were looking for this season,” Head Coach Nick Paone, said.
“It’s seems bad, but our team chemistry and overall skill really has improved from last week, despite the final score,” Paone said.
The Cavs will look for their first win of the season next Sunday Nov. 9 when they take on Drexel University Gold. Face off is scheduled for 10 p.m. on the West Rink at Marple Sports Arena in Broomall, PA.
