The #13 Cabrini Cavaliers (5-2) welcomed Colorado College (2-6) to Edith Robb Stadium for mid-week matinee.

It was a homecoming for the Head Coach of Colorado College, Mike Horowitz.

Horowitz was a stand out net minder for Muhlenberg College before serving six seasons as Defensive Coach for St. Joseph’s University.

Horowitz also spent a summer playing box in a Philadelphia league.

Cabrini, who struggled with cohesion in the early part of the season, seem to have righted their ship.

The victory marks the third straight for the Cavaliers.
