Cabrini Gets Back to Winning Way, 16-6

The Hampden-Sydney Tigers (4-2) were the guests at Edith Robb Dixon Stadium as the Cabrini Cavaliers (4-1) looked to avenge their loss from a week ago.

Mike Gerzabek (4g,2a) with a pair followed by singles from Bobby Griffith (1g) and Matt LoParo (4g,2a) gave the Cavs a 4-0 lead with 4:42 remaining in the first. The Tigers broke the run with Sean Duffy (1g) converting a Bobby Clagett set up to close the stanza with a 4-1 Cabrini lead.

The second quarter was all Cabrini who outshot their visitors, 28-5 and posted all the goals en route to a 9-1 halftime lead. LoParo, Kyle Tucker (5g), Cole Snyder (1g), Tucker and LoParo did the damage.

Hampden-Sydney finally got something generated with Jared Medwar (2g,2a), Medwar assisting on a Bobby Clagett (2g,1a) man-up the tally and Medwar potting his second and we had a game, 9-4. As he has done all season, Gerzabek stepped up with an advantage goal and the third came to a conclusion with Cabrini calling all the shots, 10-4.

LoParo and Jake O’Brien (1g) exchanged markers thirteen seconds apart before Tucker added two more to get it to 13-5. Clagett answered but Cabrini stormed to the final three goals by, who other than Gerzabek and Tucker with Ty Kostack (1g,3a) putting the icing on the cake.

Dis and Dat:

  • Gerzabek and Tucker each reached the 100 career points plateau.
  • Mike Arcuri stopped 17 shots in defeat with Matt Sageder turning aside 8.
  • Shots saw Cabrini double up the Tigers, 59-28 with loose balls going the way of Cabrini, 40-37 as well as faceoffs, 14 of 26.
