Drexel women’s soccer is coming off one of the best seasons the program has ever seen. The Dragons had a record of 13-3-3 last year, but suffered a semifinal shoot out loss to the University of North Carolina Wilmington, ending their great run. However, like any program, a great season most likely meant you had [...]
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 [...]
Something has been lost in the disappointing 2-6 start for the Drexel men’s basketball team. Samme Givens graduated last year, and Chris Fouch is lost for the season, which sure has given us a lot to talk about in the midst of the team’s early-season struggles. Still, we fully expect our Dragons to bounce back. [...]
All they could do was wait. 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. Unfortunately for the Dragons and the Dukes, Hurricane Sandy forced the match, originally scheduled for Oct. 31 at Vidas Field, to be postponed to Nov. 2 [...]
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. The Dragons, tied with Northeastern University for the top spot in the CAA, hit the road this past week for two matches and six vital points up for grabs. First [...]
The Drexel women’s soccer team continued winnging by picking up a victory in its only game last week. Drexel defeated a very good College of William & Mary squad Oct. 14 to improve to 11-3-2 (5-2-1 Colonial Athletic Association). Drexel sophomore goalkeeper Eve Badana stopped all five shots that came her way en route to [...]
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 [...]
The Drexel University women’s soccer team reached the halfway point of Colonial Athletic Association play on a hot streak, winners of two straight and three of their last four overall. The Dragons’ last win was their ninth, the most the program has ever obtained in a single season. Despite their success to this point in [...]
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 [...]
After surviving a challenging three-game road trip through the Colonial Athletic Association’s southernmost and northernmost teams, the Drexel women’s soccer team has the best record in the conference. The Dragons took two of three from the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Georgia State University and Northeastern University. The trip got off to a bad start [...]
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 [...]
Two games into conference play, the Drexel women’s soccer team’s unbeaten streak remains intact at nine and counting. The first two teams in the conference to get a shot at breaking the streak, George Mason and Towson universities, failed to snap the Dragon’s run. The most recent set of games that added to the run [...]
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. Even though those two results only raised the Dragons’ disappointing season record to 5-10-3, head coach Doug Hess took the [...]
Drexel Athletics named two soccer players as CLEAR Players of the Week for their performance the weekend of Sept. 21. Sophomore midfielder Michele Pataia won the honors for the men’s team, and sophomore defender Melissa Chapman received the honors for the women’s team. Pataia won the award for his effort in a 4-1 win over [...]
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 [...]
