The Drexel Dragons played in their first ever NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament game on Sunday in West Philadelphia and they defeated neighborhood rival and the higher-seeded Penn Quakers 16-11. Perhaps the most exciting moments of the game came at the end of the first half when the Dragon offense was... on fire!
Dave Zeitlin covered the big game for CSNPhilly.com:
With Drexel trailing 6-4 after a shorthanded goal from Penn’s Alex Blonsky late in the first half, Jules Raucci scored for Drexel with 17.7 seconds left and Saputo followed with two more goals in the final 12 seconds of the half, both after winning faceoffs and charging down the field uncontested.
Those goals gave the Dragons a 7-6 lead at halftime – their first lead of the game.
“I think it totally turned things around,” said Voelker, who used to coach at Penn. “I think Penn totally outplayed us in the first half. I was hoping got go into halftime only down one and he just turned the thing around. The momentum went from one side to the other pretty quickly.”
That's some pretty legit LaxBro hair.
The Dragons move on to play Denver next weekend in Delaware.
