The No. 5 Cabrini men closed the regular season 12-3, winners of nine consecutive games. With a 6-0 conference mark, the Blue and White have now won 96 consecutive conference games, a streak that extends to 120 with CSAC Tournament games.
Marywood, the tournament’s number four seed, sports a 5-10 overall record, including four wins in six CSAC contests. The Pacers secured their playoff berth with a 13-11 win over Centenary in their season finale, handing the Cyclones just their second loss of the season. Marywood netted seven unanswered second half goals to clinch the victory.

After recording the program’s 10th undefeated league schedule, the Cabrini women enter their tournament with an overall record of 9-7. The Cavaliers secured a bye into the semifinal round on the strength of their 8-0 conference mark. The Blue and White was honored for their play last week, as the team collected 12 CSAC End of the Year Awards, including Coach of the Year Jackie Neary, Player of the Year Lacie Doubet (Ridley) and Rookie of the Year Nathalie Basunga (Springfield-Delco).
The Mighty Macs (11-6, 5-3 CSAC) advanced to Wendesday’s semifinal round after defeating Notre Dame (Md.) 16-4 in Saturday’s opening round game. The Cavaliers and Mighty Macs matched wits on April 16 at Edith Robb Dixon Field, a game the Blue and White won 18-8.
