The Cabrini women’s soccer team won against Baptist Bible College with a 5-0 shutout.
The game started off quickly with the Cavaliers scoring early on. The final goal of the game was scored at the end of the first half by freshman forward Alex Tralie. The second half of the game ended up being scoreless for both teams.
Not only was the team winning a huge success, but it was also a big game for senior Sabina DeGisi who plays forward. Not only did DeGisi score two goals within one minute, but she also scored her 50th goal in her college career during the game.
“After the way we dominated today’s game I feel very confident that we will be able to achieve our goal of winning the CSAC,” DeGisi said. “It felt rewarding because of all the hard work and dedication my teammates and I have put in throughout my last four years. Without them, 50 goals would not have been conceivable.”
The lady Cavaliers took control over the Baptist Bible College early in the game and kept that control throughout. After their domination on the field, DeGisi felt that it gave the team some leverage to just spend the remainder of the game enjoying every second of it.
“It was an amazing feeling to know that we all pulled together and played a great game,” DeGisi said. “We were all so relieved to be able to gain a big early lead on a tough team, which allowed us to relax and have fun until the clock read 0:00.”
“I think we bond more than other teams. I’m not exactly sure what other people do, but between the pasta parties, hanging out after games and hanging out after practices I think it really makes a difference. You need to make a bond outside your sport, so you can connect better inside of it,” sophomore forward Kara Hinkelmon said.
The other team members also agree with Hinkelmon.
“We’re a very close team; we do everything together and no matter what we’re doing were always having fun,” junior goal keeper Gianna Porretta said.
The team has been proving themselves all season and now they are going for the big win.
“We started off a little slow but after beating Notre Dame, I think our confidence has boosted. We really needed that win to prove to ourselves that we can do this and win our conference,” Hinkelmon said.
They are proud of their consecutive wins and hope to continue on with their winning streak.
“I’m very confident about the rest of the season, it’s going to be tough but we want this championship more than anything,” Porretta said.
