Cabrini men’s soccer team swept the field in a 6-0 win over Baptist Bible College on Saturday, Oct. 20. There were about 80 spectators cheering on Cabrini and their seniors at this year’s Senior Day.
This marked the last home game for seniors Mike Gee, Anthony Girolamo, Kyle Johnson, Ryan Juhring and Pat Wehring. Many of them found a way to make it memorable.
Gee started in goal for the first time this season, and notched a shutout. He did not face any shots on goal in the contest.
For much of the first half, it wasn’t the seniors finding the back of the net. Instead, they helped set up their teammates for goals. Wehring assisted on the first goal of the game in the seventh minute, the sixth goal of the season for George Lambritsios.
In the 14th minute, Junior C.J. Doherty scored his first goal of the season with the assist going to junior Brett Lockbaum. Just nine minutes later, in the 23rd minute, Lockbaum tallied a goal of his own, his sixth of the season, from Rey Jimenez.
Johnson would assist on a first-half goal as well, setting up Gabe Kuhn for his first goal of the season in the 32nd minute.
Finally, in the 40th minute, a senior tallied a goal. Juhring scored his third goal of the season off a free kick. That capped the scoring for the first half with the Cavs leading 5-0.
The Cavs focused on running out the clock in the second half. But they did manage to get another senior on the scoresheet with a goal in the half. Wehring scored his second goal in as many games off an assist from freshman Boomer Steigelman to cap the scoring in the game.
This was the Cavs’ fourth straight win in their current winning streak. It improved their record at 8-7-2 overall and 5-2-1 in the Colonial States Athletic Conference. They sit in fourth place in the CSAC standings with one game remaining in their season.
It was a bittersweet say for the seniors. They currently can’t be guaranteed a playoff home game. In what could have been their final game at Edith Robb Dixon Field, the Cavs dominated the field. Totaling the career of the senior group, they have led the Cavaliers to 41 wins, including one CSAC Championship, and together have scored 69 points on 19 goals and 31 assists.
The men on a mission have one more chance to claim victory before the playoffs. They travel to face Marywood on Wednesday, Oct. 24, in Scranton, Pa. at 7 p.m.
The CSAC quarterfinals are scheduled to begin on Monday, Oct. 29. If the Cavaliers finish fourth place or better in the regular season, they will host a playoff game that day.
