Cabrini wins battle of ranked foes

Tyler King scored twice against No. 11 Cabrini.
Tyler King scored twice against No. 11 Cabrini.

It was a battle of the 11th and 12th ranked teams in NCAA Division III men's lacrosse and No. 11 Cabrini defended its home field with a 13-8 victory over No. 12 Denison on Saturday in Radnor, Pa.

The Cavaliers took a 4-0 lead in the opening 10 minutes of the contest and that head start would be too much for the Big Red to overcome.

Between the first and second quarter, DU would cut the Cabrini lead to 4-3 after goals by Justin DeMarchi, Will Koontz and an extra-man goal by Teddy Powell with 10:13 to play in the first half.

Just as the Big Red were gaining momentum Cabrini's Corey Elmer would score while his Cavaliers were one man down following an unnecessary roughness call on Ethan Heisman.

With 3:05 left and again with 11 seconds remaining in the second quarter, Elmer would score, lifting his team back to a 7-3 lead heading into the intermission.

Cabrini would win the opening face-off of the second half, and 27 seconds later, Damian Sobieski scored an unassisted goal to give his team its largest lead of the day at 8-3.

With just under 12 minutes to play in the third, Denison's Eddie Vita scored his first of two extra-man goals, this one coming off an assist by Nick Caravana.  Once again, just as the Big Red was trying to build some positive energy, the Cavaliers were there to squash it with back-to-back goals to go up 10-4.

Over the final quarter and a half, the Big Red would get two goals from Tyler King, and one apiece from Vita and Powell, setting the final at 13-8.

Cabrini held a 37-32 advantage in the shot department.  DU goalie Chris Thomas posted eight saves while Cabrini back-up goalie Chris Treat played 42 minutes in relief of starter Erick Zarzecki.  Treat finished with all nine saves while allowing six of Denison's eight goals.

Defensively, the Big Red was led by Austin Campbell and Spencer Riehl who each scooped up five ground balls.  Riehl also led the way with two caused turnovers.

The Cavaliers held a 15-10 advantage at the face-off X.  They also won the turnover battle, committing 14 to Denison's 17 miscues.

The loss drops Denison's record to 8-2 while Cabrini improves to 7-3.  DU will return to action on Wednesday when they travel to Gambier, Ohio for a 7 p.m. game with Kenyon College.  This will mark the second annual Thomsen-Heiser Game between the Lords and the Big Red.
