Mustangs win streak snapped at Cabrini

Kyle D’Onofrio scored three goals and had on assist against No. 11 Cabrini.

While no loss is good, this might have an important one for the No. 14 Stevenson Mustangs to have. It’s been a month since the Mustangs played a top notch opponent as they’ve run through seven-straight MAC Commonwealth challengers, but on Friday night the Mustangs took a step out of league play and traveled to Radnor, Pennsylvania to take on the No. 11 Cabrini Cavaliers. There they suffered a 15-9 defeat and saw their winning streak come to an end, but it also got the Mustangs back in a game against a top-flight opponent that they are sure to see in the NCAA Tournament in a few weeks.

It’s easy for a team to get complacent when they are not really being challenged for so many games in a row. But this gave them the late season challenge they needed, to perhaps get them back in a rhythm of playing tough games against tough opponents.

Cabrini hit Stevenson with an early punch as Timmy Brooks and Jordan Krug scored within the first three and a half minutes. But Stevenson punched back and eventually tied the game at 2-2 with 11:17 left in the second quarter. Brandon Watson and Wade Korvin both scored or Stevenson. And when Cabrini scored two more goals in a row, Stevenson ripped two scored in just a minute’s span late in the second quarter to force the 4-4 tie at the intermission.

And while Cabrini came out firing in the third quarter and started out on a 6-1 run to take a 10-5 lead, Stevenson refused to back down as they scored three in a row to make it a 10-8 game after 45 minutes. Kyle D’Onofrio scored three of Stevenson’s four goals in the third quarter.

But the Cavaliers would pull away from Stevenson in the fourth quarter. They scored the first four goals of the fourth quarter and overall outscored the Mustangs 5-1 in the final period. While Stevenson beat Cabrini on ground balls through the first three quarters, the Cavaliers had a 9-3 ground ball lead in the final quarter.

Stevenson was severely stifled by Cabrini’s defense that held them to only 5-of-12 on clear attempts. Stevenson was 0-for-1 on clears in the fourth quarter. The Cavaliers were a perfect 16-for-16 on clear attempts for the game.

Stevenson will stay out of conference competition for their next game when they travel to Hoboken, New Jersey to take on No. 20 Stevens on Tuesday.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
