The Cabrini women’s lacrosse team lost to Ursinus College on Saturday, March 20, at the Edith Robb Dixon Field to drop their second game in a row. The loss also brings the Cavaliers’ record to 2-3 overall on the young season.

Cabrini got off to a slow start by allowing Ursinus to jump to an 8-2 lead. Ursinus attacker Lindsay Urban paced the early domination with two goals.

“We started off too slow. We let Ursinus play their game and we kind of just sat back and watched for the first 15 minutes. Those 15 minutes killed us, because we beat them in the second half, but the little mistakes in the first half kept us from being able to pull out the win,” Jacky McDermott, sophomore attacker, said.

Cabrini seemed to learn from their early mistakes and make a run of their own.The Cavaliers didn’t stay quiet for long; they responded to the early adversity with three unanswered goals of their own to close the gap to 8-5.

“I think we weren’t sure how Ursinus was going to play so we weren’t ready for them to attack right away,” Dolores Weathers, junior attacker, said.

Cabrini kept the momentum going when they returned from half-time with two goals from the senior duo of Erin Nollen and Amanda Alexandrowicz, which put the Cavaliers down by only one goal.

The next nine minutes of the game were filled with goals from both teams and had two lead changes. The Cavaliers finally tied it up with 14 minutes to go in the game with a goal from Jamie O’Hanlon, followed by a go-ahead-goal from Alexandrowicz in the 13th minute.

However, the Cavaliers weren’t able to hold the lead due to the Ursinus Bears going on a four-goal unanswered streak to put the game away.  The Cavaliers ended up losing 14-12 by the end of the exciting game.

“We have to start playing hard from the minute we step on the field, be confident and not let other teams gain the lead early in the first half, but most importantly we have to start playing lacrosse like we know how to and be confident,” McDermott said.

Nollen had 5 points on 5 goals and Alexandrowicz had seven points on three goals and four assists. Senior goaltender Kate Schmid had seven saves for the Cavaliers in her fifth start of the season.

Emily Diehl paced the Ursinus Bears with five points on four goals and one assist. Goaltender Alex Mcbride posted 10 saves in the win.

Cabrini will look to solidify their play with a week of games and practices before the start of the Colonial State Athletic Conference schedule. The team closes the rest of their  schedule with seven out of their nine games against CSAC opponents.

“For our next game we are going to work on playing a full game, all 60 minutes and not just one half,” Nollen said.
