For the 11th consecutive season under 11-year head coach Steve Colfer, the Cabrini men’s lacrosse team has finished its Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) schedule with an unblemished regular season mark.
The host Cavaliers scored seven goals in the third quarter and limited Immaculata University to only two second half tallies en route to a 17-5 victory on Saturday at Draper Walsh Stadium.
Senior Mike Gurenlian (Springfield Delco) won 13-of-15 face-off attempts and took over sole possession of the Cavaliers’ all-time career record with 343. Heading into Saturday’s game, Gurenlian needed just two draw victories to overcome the program’s previous recordholder, current assistant head coach Mike Dolente (331, 2006-09).
Senior attackman Jordan Coeyman (New Hope–Solebury) powered the Cabrini attack with a team-best six points on five goals and one assist. Senior midfielder Paul Skulski (Garnet Valley) had two goals and two assists and senior midfielder Dan Terenick (Ridley) added three goals and an assist.
Skulski’s two-assist performance against the Mighty Macs makes him only the third Cavalier in program history to reach 100 career assists, joining Springfield-Delco coach Tom Lemieux (131, 1999-02) and Casey Grugan (128, 2007-10).
Terenick’s four-point afternoon brings him within just four points of 100 for his career at Cabrini. He would be the second member of the Blue & White to accomplish the scoring feat this season, joining junior Brian Hill (Ridley).
Hill aided the Cavaliers on the attack, netting three goals. Sophomore attackman Jeff Crosby also posted three points with two scores and one helper.
Immaculata (6-8, 3-3) was led by Dante Tuscai (West Chester East, three goals) and Joey Shallow (Lower Merion, one goal, one assist. Jon Diodati (Henderson) made 13 saves.
Cabrini went 19-for-23 in the face-off circle for the game, including a 10-for-12 clip in the second half. Senior Joe Strain complemented Gurenlian’s efforts with a 6-for-7 performance on draws.
The Cavaliers owned a convincing 43-23 advantage in groundballs. Senior defenseman Steve Heaps sophomore longstick midfielder Tim Grenier (Ridley) and freshman midfielder JoJo Cooper each scooped a team-best four.
Cabrini (10-5) earned the No. 1 seed in the postseason tournament and begins its quest for an 11th straight CSAC crown on Tuesday, May 3 at Edith Robb Dixon Field against Immaculata. Game time against the Mighty Macs is set to be announced.
