The Cabrini women’s basketball team defeated Keystone College 67-42 on Saturday, Dec. 3 at the Nerney Field House. The Cavaliers came through strong in the second half as they won their third straight game and improved to 4-2 on the season. This is the first time since 2008-2009 that the Lady Cavs have won their first three CSAC games of the season.

The Cavaliers put up a good fight during the first half. The team played a strong defensive game but the opposing Giants managed to stay in the lead during the first half.

With only five minutes left in the first half, the Lady Cavs trailed by just three points. Amanda Cundari, sophomore guard, stepped up her game and made a three-pointer to tie up the game.

“I feel like we really came together as a team, especially the first five minutes of the second half where it was 29-29,” Cundari said. “We came out with an essential win.”

Cundari’s teammate Annie Rivituso, sophomore guard/forward, ended up tying up the game 29-29 before the half after scoring a layup. Rivituso finished with six points in the game.

During the second half, Cabrini came out ready to fight and eager to stop Keystone.  The back and forth flow of the game left the crowd on the edge of their seats. The Cavs never backed down their defense and ran a strong offense.

“We really came out strong and stepped up offensively in the second half,” Colleen Stewart, sophomore forward, said. Stewart scored eight points and collected six rebounds in the game.

Led by sophomore guard Leithie Faison, the Cavs outscored the Giants 38-13 in the second half. Faison finished the game with 11 points and four rebounds.

Cabrini finished the game with a 47.5 shooting percentage and also committed 14 turnovers while the Giants shot under 30 percent and turned the ball over 25 times.

“We were fired up and really just wanted to play our game and put Keystone away,” Stewart said.
