Field hockey’s losses to tough opponents leave long road ahead in CAA
It was a tough weekend for the Drexel University’s field hockey team. The lady Dragons were tasked with taking on 18th-ranked James Madison University and second-ranked University of Connecticut. Both games were lopsided both on the score board and on the field. The Dragons did not look quite themselves, as their defense was not as stout as we have been accustomed to seeing. The Dragons allowed a total of 41 shots on goal this weekend, and only managed 17 shots themselves. James Madison and Connecticut were both extremely tough, as was to be expected considering their rankings, but Drexel still played hard and did everything they could.

Big week for field hockey shows massive improvement on offense
Call off the dogs, it looks like the Drexel University field hockey team has found its rhythm. Over the past weekend, the Lady Dragons were able to defeat Northeastern University, as well as Rider University. In both games the Dragons were able to net four goals without letting up their defense. Though they struggled at the beginning of the season to simply score a goal, now it seems like the team has found itself offensively. If they can continue to improve on offense and keep this hot streak going they are likely to beat anyone.
