From the day the Cabrini men’s lacrosse team ended the 2018 season, that has been the mantra.
Today, the Cavaliers lived their words and went 1-0 in the biggest game and on the biggest stage in the history of the program.
The Blue and White rallied to score a 16-12 victory over No. 7 Amherst College to win the University’s first ever NCAA championship in front of a boisterous crowd of nearly 19,000 mostly blue and white clad fans at Lincoln Financial Field. Cabrini closed the 2019 campaign with a program best 22-2 record and 15 game win streak.
Sophomore Kyle Tucker was named championship game most valuable player after leading the Cavaliers with three goals and an assist. Senior Bill Morgan matched Tucker with three goals.
Senior Jordan Krug led all scorers with five points on two goals and three assists. With today’s output, Krug completed one of the best seasons in program history, setting a single season mark with 75 goals, while his 113 points rank second. The senior also established new standards with 355 career points, while his 233 goals are tied for the top spot.
Senior Timmy Brooks and junior Tyler Kostack added two goals each, while junior Mike Gerzabek notched two assists.
