Sophomore Danielle Rothermal scored four times for Cabrini, leading the way to their ninth straight Pennsylvania Athletic Conference victory this season.
With this win Cabrini clinches the first seed in the PAC playoffs, giving them home field advantage throughout.
“We are playing so well this year because everyone is so focused on getting back the PAC championship,” senior captain and elementary education major Kate Penrose, said.
Cabrini jumped out to a 9-0 lead early in the first half. Then after letting the lead get cut to 9-2 at halftime, the Cavs knotted four straight goals in the second half to ice the victory.
“Erin Nollen, Amanda Alexandrowitz and Danielle Rothermal are all playing well together on offense for us,” Penrose said.
Nollen and Alexandrowitz added three goals a piece to Rothermals four, making the groups total tally at 10 on the game. Penrose added a goal and an assist as well.
“Every league game we have really tried to step up on offense and defense,” junior English and communication major Amanda Alexandrowitz, said.
Goalie Kate Schmid played her part in the Cavs win by making 21 saves.
“Kate has been huge all year; she makes the big saves when we need them and we know we can count on her back there. This years team is so complete and it really starts with Kate in net,” Penrose said.
Four different players for Cabrini recorded assists, 23 different Cavaliers played in the game and on defense Christina Romano, Chrissy Regan and Maura Brennan combined for eight ground balls.
“We have been together for a few years now, so this season our defense is stronger than ever,” junior defender and elementary education major Christina Romano said.
Cabrini has compiled some very impressive statistics so far this season. They are averaging 14.22 goals per game, 5.11 assists per game, have a .386 shooting percentage and are leading the league in shots per game at 36.89. Defensively the Cavs are averaging 23.11 ground balls per game, cause 12.67 turnovers each contest, and have a second best 9.22 goal against average.
“It really is a team effort with us this year and in games like this past weekend we get to play a lot of people. It gives a chance to show what a good team we are from top to bottom and gets girls valuable experience as we head towards the playoffs,” Penrose said.
