Hopes were high as the Drexel men’s soccer team took the field in the first round of the NCAA College Cup. The Blue and Gold stood between the lines Nov. 21 just after the clock struck 6 p.m. and stood face to face with the Monarchs of Old Dominion University. On this night, the Dragons […]

Jameson Detweiler doesn’t usually go to the net. But in a scoreless, winner-take-all match against The College of William & Mary in the Colonial Athletic Association championship game, the redshirt freshman defender took a chance and followed team captain Tal Bublil into scoring range. In the 26th minute of the match, junior midfielder Michele Pataia […]
Have you ever heard the adage “competition breeds champions”? Probably not, because I just made it up. But even though it is a phrase I just pulled out of my skull, it seems to apply greatly to the Drexel men’s soccer team in the Colonial Athletic Association. Because the CAA has grown to be one […]
“We hate them.” It didn’t take much thought for Drexel club ice hockey captain Andrew MacBride to express the relationship between his Dragons and their opponent, West Chester University. Really, the words themselves weren’t necessary — although it did bring a smirk to his face to actually say it — because the Rams and Dragons […]
In collegiate sports, conference games are generally more important than those of the out-of-conference variety. This surely rings true for the Drexel men’s soccer team, which is now 3-0-1 in Colonial Athletic Association play and 4-6-1 when playing teams outside of the conference. For the middle two matches in a four-match road trip, the Dragons […]
During halftime of a Sunday Night Football game Oct. 13 between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins, sportscaster Bob Costas used his on-air time to speak about the demeaning nature of the nickname “Redskins,” calling it an “insult” and a “slur” to the Native American population. Although Costas’ argument is one that has been […]
Oh, how the tables have turned. After being shut out in two consecutive matches against Temple University and Princeton University, the Drexel men’s soccer team has now shut out its opponents in each of the last two matches. These strong defensive efforts resulted in a scoreless draw vs. Northeastern University and a 2-0 win over […]
Something must be in the water at Vidas Field, or maybe there has been a bad batch of Wheaties going around. Perhaps, most realistically, someone put a hex on the Dragons, because suddenly, none of the Drexel athletic teams can score goals! Women’s soccer has been shut out in four consecutive matches, and field hockey […]
When a rivalry game comes up on the schedule, everything goes out the window. Team records don’t matter. Winning streaks don’t matter. Losing streaks don’t matter. All that matters is the score as the final buzzer sounds. Coming off a 2-1 win Sept. 28 over The College of William & Mary, the Drexel men’s soccer […]
The Drexel men’s soccer team frequently used the adjective “quality” this past week when describing the team’s upcoming opponent, Rutgers University. But when the Scarlet Knights stepped onto Vidas Field Sept. 24, it was easy to see which team truly showed its quality: the Dragons. With goals from senior midfielders Nathan Page and Ken Tribbett […]
In an 18-game regular season, any signs of struggle early on could greatly affect postseason seeding or eligibility. Following a 0-2-1 start, including a loss to Sacred Heart University, the Drexel men’s soccer team remained composed and responded with three consecutive victories. The Dragons began their season Aug. 30 at home against Fairleigh Dickinson University, […]
One week from today, the Drexel men’s soccer team will begin the 2013 campaign with the highest expectations the program has seen in a long time. It will take an extraordinary effort from the Dragons in order to defend their regular-season Colonial Athletic Association title, but head coach Doug Hess is confident that his team […]
You cannot explain true greatness; you just know it when you see it. True greatness stepped up to the plate and hit a home run on his 22nd birthday. True greatness teed off at 8:35 a.m. in hopes of winning his 15th major championship three days later. Mike Trout is great. Tiger Woods is great. […]
Gary Player is one of the greatest golfers ever to play the game. He accumulated 25 career wins on the PGA Tour, including nine major championships that tie him for fourth all-time with the legendary Ben Hogan. In 2012, Player earned the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award, becoming the 10th individual to receive such an […]
On June 18, 2007, the lowly Philadelphia Flyers lost the NHL Draft Lottery despite being the worst team in the league. The Chicago Blackhawks, only the fifth-worst squad that year, drafted a highly regarded American right wing with the No. 1 overall selection. His name was Patrick Kane. On June 9, 2010, Kane squeaked a […]
Not many names have more clout in the sport of cycling than Lance Armstrong. Regardless of his performance-enhancing drug usage, he was one of the world’s most dominant athletes for nearly two decades. This past Sunday, June 2, three Drexel University alumni raced in the Philly Cycling Classic, the same event that Armstrong won back […]
Sports teams are often compared to cars. It is certainly not a surprising phenomenon, considering the growth in popularity of sports coinciding with the growth of the automobile industry in the United States. Analysts, coaches and fans throw around terminology like “well-oiled machine” and “firing on all cylinders” from time to time as appropriate accolades […]
Never have expectations been higher for the Drexel men’s soccer team. After eight seniors graduated from a squad that won the regular season Colonial Athletic Association title, the Dragons will defend that title in every one of their seven conference matches this fall. After reaching the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 40 years […]
I love sports. Trust me, they are the light of my life. Some of my most cherished memories involve sports, both as a fan and as an “athlete.” I am currently the assistant sports editor here at The Triangle, and I am set to graduate with a degree in sport management next March. Sports do […]
A week after being named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association First Team, the Drexel men’s lacrosse team trio that head coach Brian Voelker called the “1-2-3 punch” moved on to the offseason lifestyle. Senior attack Robert Church appeared in the Daskalakis Athletic Center with some scrapes across his face and a cut on his nose; […]
