Led by Thorp, seven Cavaliers found the net today. Sophomore Anthony DiSanzo recorded his second consecutive hat trick. Elmer added a pair of goals to his stat line, as did sophomore Damian Sobieski.
The Garnet jumped out to a 2-0 lead midway through the first quarter on a pair of man-up goals. With 2:16 left in the opening frame, Elmer found DiSanzo putting the Blue and White on the board. The duo struck again less than a minute into the second quarter to level the score at 2-2. Forty seconds later, Swarthmore wrestled the lead back.
Just over five minutes into the period, the Cavaliers seemed to find their offensive mojo. Thorp tied the score at the 9:52 mark then gave Cabrini its first lead of the game with 8:44 to play before halftime. Sophomore Ethan Heisman extended the Cavaliers' lead to 5-3 when he converted a pass from Thorp into his third tally of the year. After a Swarthmore goal, junior Joey Shallow and DiSanzo found the net in the final 3:21 of the first half, sending the Blue and White into the break with a 7-4 advantage.
The Garnet got a goal back at the 8:26 mark of the third period, but Cabrini responded with a pair of goals. Scores by Elmer and sophomore Mike Leyden came 18 seconds apart, extending the Blue and White's lead to 9-5.

The Cavaliers turned up the offensive pressure in the final quarter, outshooting the Garnet 14-5 and converted on 4-6 extra man opportunities. Thorp tallied a pair of goals, separated by five seconds, at the 11:46 and 11:41 marks.
