They drive twenty miles down the road to play a game that they love. Seniors Frank Plum and Anthony Contipidero, junior Anthony D’Aleo and graduate student Mike Fineberg all travel to Aston, Pa. on Thursday nights to play in a men’s adult roller hockey league in Tri State sports.

“I started the team,” Contipidero said. “The team is a lot of my buddies from high school and a couple guys from [Cabrini].” Named the Wolverines, the team has been playing in the league for the past three years under Contipidero, team captain.

On Wednesday, Oct. 17, the team played a double-header. The Wolverines had both games from the start. With less than four minutes into the first game, D’Aleo already sunk the ball into the net. As always when the men scored, he raised his stick into the air to notify the official and all of the fans that the ball was in his control.

Soon after, the other team named the Untouchables, scored. However, they were not untouchable to the Wolverines. The Wolverines sunk eight more shots that game, bringing in their fourth victory of the season with a score of 9-1.

Around 20 eager Cabrini student fans congratulated the team on their win and encouraged them on for their upcoming game. During the brief break, the men rested up and guzzled water and various sports drinks.

During the second game of the double-header, the Wolverines were up against Wolfpack. The game ended in a shut out of 10-0 with 15 seconds left in the second period and a third period to spare. The rules list that if a team is up by 10 points, the game is automatically won.

“The double-header was rough, but we played so well,” Plum said. “We only allowed 13-14 shots on goal for both games, which is pretty amazing.”

“All of the team members have just stepped up their levels. That’s why we’re blowing out teams,” Contipidero said.

Although the four members of the team have leadership roles in the new Cabrini Hockey Club, they will continue out the season in Aston.

“We’d love to have the support,” D’Aleo said. “If anyone wants to support us, come up to one of us and ask us where it is or give us a call,” D’Aleo said.

Carissa Bassett, junior, has been following the Wolverines since last season. “They’re fun,” Bassett said. “They give you something to do on a Thursday night that does not relate to drinking and you get off campus for a bit.”
