Cabrini Runs by Immaculata to Finish Perfect in CSAC

IMMACULATA, Pa. For the 11th consecutive season under 11th-year head coach Steve Colfer, Cabrini has finished its CSAC schedule with an unblemished regular season mark. The Cavaliers scored seven goals in the third quarter and limited Immaculata to only two second half tallies en route to a 17-5 victory on Saturday at Draper Walsh Stadium.

Senior Mike Gurenlian (Springfield, Pa./Springfield Delco HS) 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, Pa./New Hope Solebury HS) powered the Cabrini attack with a team-best six points on five goals and one assist. Senior midfielder Paul Skulski (Glen Mills, Pa./Garnet Valley HS) (2G, 2A) and senior midfielder Dan Terenick (Woodlynn, Pa./Ridley HS) (3G, 1A) each contributed four points.

Skulski's two-assist performance against the Mighty Macs makes him only the third Cavalier in program history to reach 100 career assists, joining 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.

Hill aided the Cavaliers on the attack, netting three goals. Sophomore attackman Jeff Crosby (Flemington, N.J./Hunterdon Central Regional HS) also posted three points with two scores and one helper.

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 (Voorhees, N.J./Eastern Regional HS) 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 (Street, Md./North Harford HS), sophomore longstick midfielder Tim Grenier (Ridley Park, Pa./Ridley HS) and freshman midfielder JoJo Cooper (Davidsonville, Md./South River HS) each scooped a team-best four.

Sophomore goalkeeper Erick Zarzecki (Owings Mills, Md./Pikesville HS) made his 29th consecutive start in between the pipes for the Blue & White and made in 18 saves in just over 53 minutes played. Freshman Steve Oppenheimer (Conshohocken, Pa./Germantown Academy) came on in relief and notched one stop.

Depsite scoring the game's first two goals, from Coeyman and sophomore midfielder Bobby Thorp (Marlton, N.J./Cherokee HS), Cabrini held just a 2-1 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Cavaliers scored the first three goals of the second period, but led just 7-3 at the intermission.

Immaculata cut its deficit to three goals, 7-4, early in the third quarter before the Blue & White seized control of the contest with an 8-0 run to close the period and begin the fourth.

Coeyman, Hill and Terenick each netted two goals during the decisive run. Coeyman added an assist on sophomore midfielder Joe Hughes' (Plymouth Meeting, Pa./Plymouth-Whitemarsh HS) goal to open the final quarter. He added his fifth goal of the game for good measure with 4:14 remaining.

The Cabrini offense converted 17 goals on 42 shots (.405), its third most efficient offensive performance of the season following wins against Centenary College (.432) on April 16 and Shenandoah University (.413) on March 26.
