As the 2012 NCAA College Cup bracket was revealed the evening of Nov. 12, the Drexel men’s soccer team gathered at the Vidas Athletic Complex fieldhouse and waited for their name to appear in the 48-team field. With 46 schools up on the board and just one matchup remaining, [...]

In recent memory, the Drexel men’s soccer team had been among the bottom-feeders of the Colonial Athletic Association. Since winning a share of the CAA regular-season title in 2007, the Dragons finished eighth twice and last twice in the past four seasons. Through the struggles and unlucky injuries in the first two seasons under head [...]
A season’s worth of hard work and success for the Drexel men’s soccer team has come down to a final showdown against defending regular-season conference champion James Madison University.

In Doug Hess’ third year as Drexel’s men’s soccer head coach, the team has emerged as one of the Colonial Athletic Association’s most feared programs.

With three games remaining in Colonial Athletic Association play, the Drexel men’s soccer team is tied with Northeastern University for first place in the standings. They both have 16 points and their eyes set on a regular-season conference title and the right to host the CAA Tournament. This past week, the Dragons faced off against [...]
Contrary to generalized thinking, shutouts in the game of soccer should not be attributed to stagnancy and lack of action. They reflect defensive stability, an aggressive attitude with superior goalkeeping, and ultimately, dominance. Through five matches in Colonial Athletic Association play, the Drexel men’s soccer team has posted three shutouts, all by senior goalkeeper Tim [...]
Since Doug Hess became head coach of the Drexel men’s soccer team in 2010, the success of each season has been based on solid goalkeeping. For the past two years the goalkeeper has been junior Pentti Pussinen, but now Tim Washam is getting his shot. Washam, a senior from Warminster, Pa., took over for Pussinen [...]
In the final two men’s soccer matches of the 2011 season, Drexel defeated No. 12 James Madison University by a score of 2-0 and played to a 1-1 draw against No. 16 Old Dominion University.

The good news is that the Drexel men’s soccer team scored more goals in its first 2012 match than it did through its first seven matches of 2011. The bad news is that it was in a losing effort, a 3-2 beatdown from the La Salle University Explorers Aug. 25. The match took place at [...]
Didier Drogba steps back, takes the penalty to his left and displaces Manuel Neuer, who jumps to Drogba’s right. The ball goes in, and Chelsea Football Club wins its first-ever UEFA Champions League title! That was the most crucial moment of one of the most exciting Champions League finals in recent memory. Bayern Munich went [...]
In an interview with Bryan Fyalkowski of The Triangle in November 2011, Drexel men’s soccer head coach Doug Hess brought the curtain down on a disappointing 2011 season (5-10-3 overall, 4-5-2 Colonial Athletic Association) for the Dragons with these words: “when January comes around, we begin another cycle and start preparing for next fall.” So [...]
There is a saying that is sacrosanct with all team sports. It remains true whether one is gracing the elementary schoolyard , the Lucas Oil Stadium Feb. 5 or the hallowed turf of the Vidas Athletics Complex on 42nd and Powelton. This credo states simply that “no one player is bigger than the team.” And [...]
San Francisco’s Johan de Avila and Seattle Sounders’ Jeff Parke tangle over the loose ball at midfield Aug. 3. ’11 in CONCACAF action at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Wa. Seattle won 2-0.

Tribbett returned this year as a sophomore for the Dragons and contributed to a vast amount of the team’s overall victories. Tribbett, a Colorado native, came from [...]
In a season of two very different halves, it was only appropriate for the Drexel men’s soccer team to finish the 2011 season on a high note. After going 1-7-1 in the first half of the season, the Dragons put up a 4-3-2 record over the second half. After the 2-0 upset win over No. [...]
The Drexel men’s soccer team’s last home match of the season usually bids farewell to a wave of seniors who will play their last 90 minutes in front of the home fans. This season, however, with only one graduating senior, the matchup on Nov. 1 focused on the Dragons against the No. 12 James Madison [...]
The past week has been a roller coaster ride for the Drexel men’s soccer team. It started with a dramatic double-overtime victory by the Dragons thanks to a winner from sophomore defender Tal Bublil.
