The Lady Cavs soccer team defeated Immaculata University’s Mighty Macs 2-1 on Tuesday, Oct. 15, giving the team its third Pennsylvania Athletic Conference win.

Even though it was a cold fall day the Lady Cavs still had the support and encouragement of the their fans. Freshman Jessica Vera, fan, said, “It was a crazy game but we pulled through and had a really good game.”

With the Cavs making several shots on goal and dominating the field, the Mighty Macs were forced to play defense for a large part of the game, and the Lady Cavs kept Immaculata’s goalie, Christine Suppa, on her toes.

Kristen Luft, senior, scored the first goal of the game. However, to the crowd’s dismay, Immaculata answered back making the score 1-1 at the end of the first half. It was tied 1-1 for a majority of the game with each team fighting to put more points on the board.

The second half of the game was intense with the Cavs making repeated attempts on goal, but Suppa denied the shots. With 18:41 left in the half, junior Colleen Feeney scored the Cavs’ second and winning goal of the game.

With five minutes left on the clock, a fight broke out among the players. Within about a minute and after a few punches, the referees took control. As the fight broke out, a fan yelled, “Who brought the WWF to the soccer field?” The crowd was furious with the referee and outraged that Colleen Feeney was given a red card and not a player from the other team. The fight was not a positive aspect of the game but it showed how the team grouped together and stuck up for one another.

The Mighty Macs fought hard to gain another goal but the Lady Cavs were determined to bring home the win. Jess Huda, assistant coach and former player, said, “One big thing about this game was that the team showed a passion to win. They were just coming off a win against Neumann and they were determined not to lose.”

Chrissy Weney, first-year player, said, “All are hard work finally paid off when we won.”

Luft said, ” We stuck together as a team and did not give up.”

The women’s soccer team has an overall record of 4-11 and a conference record of 3-4.
