Drexel Ladies Stay Hot

Drexel Ladies stay hot with a 17-9 win. The dynamic Lucy Schneidereith (4g) started the Drexel goal parade just :35 in against cross-town rival, the LaSalle Lady Explorers (2-3) who ventured to Vidas Field to challenge the #23 Drexel Dragons (6-1).

LaSalle had an answer when Bridget Rusky (3g) grabbed an unassisted marker to even the score at 1 apiece. Sadly for LaSalle, that may have been their highlight for the afternoon and The Dragons snorted fire, and Karson Harris (3g), Colleen Grady (1g, 2a), Courtney Dietzel (2g), and Jamie Schneidereith (3g) exploded in just two minutes to post the Dragons to a 5-1 edge.

Allison Hunter (2g,2a) on the advantage got LaSalle to a 5-2 deficit. Drexel went on another run when Lucy Schneidereith, Dietzel, Corinne Badnarik (3g,1a), and another from Lucy got it to 9-2. Madi McKee (1g) closed the dominating Drexel half, 9-3.

The Dragons were full of fire and blew things open Hayleigh Simpson (1g,2a), an advantage goal from Jamie Schneidereith, Bednarik, and Harris to move the board to 13-3. As with most teams, LaSalle was not about to roll over and attempted a comeback when Annika Iacobulli (1g,2a) and Hunter made it 13-5 with plenty of time left, 21:24.

LaSalle awakened from their comeback dreams and the boogeyman, in the persons of Jamie Schneidereith, Harris and, not to be outdone, Lucy Schneidereith pushed it 16-5 before Rusky countered. Drexel went right back at it and Bednarik made it 17-6. Showing no quit, Sharon Elias (2g,3a) nabbed a pair before assisting on a Rusky goal to get us to the 17-9 final.

Oh, Wait… I Forgot

Despite the score, LaSalle had the edge in shots, 27-26 while on goal was even at 21-21. Drexel had 15 turnovers to LaSalle’s 9, The Dragons also won the ground ball battle, 12-10, and controlled draw possessions, 19-9. Drexel Ladies stay hot.
