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 […]
When senior night rolls around each year, the lights seem to shine a little brighter, the stage seems a little bigger, and the stakes seem a little higher. Of course, any Colonial Athletic Association match in late October or early November is important when a spot in the conference tournament is on the line. As […]
Although they did their part over the weekend, the Drexel women’s soccer team’s season ended short of a Colonial Athletic Association playoff berth. The Dragons were eliminated Oct. 27 despite defeating the University of North Carolina Wilmington and the College of Charleston in their final two games. Drexel entered the weekend with a small chance […]
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 […]
Drexel’s women’s soccer team’s hopes for another Colonial Athletic Association Tournament appearance darkened last week, as the team dropped its match Oct. 18 against the University of Delaware by a score of 1-0. Coming off a breakthrough victory, one that saw them snap a 530-minute scoreless streak, the Dragons were looking to build some late-season […]
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 […]
The Drexel women’s soccer team’s struggles continued offensively. For the fourth straight game, the Dragons failed to get on the scoreboard and were shut out 2-0 Oct. 6 by James Madison University. Drexel fell to 4-8-1 on the season and has yet to win a game within the Colonial Athletic Association, falling to 0-3 in […]
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’s women’s soccer team took another step back this week, this time to Colonial Athletic Association foes. The Dragons lost to Towson University on the road and at Vidas Field to The College of William & Mary to fall to 4-7-1 on the year in the conference openers. From the opening kickoff Sept. 29 […]
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 […]
A season of inconsistency continued for the women’s soccer team, as Drexel split two games in Colorado. The team fell to Colorado College 3-0 Sept. 20 before rebounding to blank the United States Air Force Academy 1-0 Sept. 22. The weekend got off to as poor of a start as possible, as 100 seconds into […]
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, […]
It has been a rocky start to the season for the Drexel women’s soccer team. In games littered with inconsistency, the team has split the first third of its schedule as evenly as possible, opening 3-3-1. The team got off to a slow start to kick off the season, falling to Rutgers University 1-0 Aug. […]
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 […]
The 2012 season for the women’s soccer team at Drexel was more than just a good year; it was historic. The Dragons shattered their program record for most wins in a season, posting a 13-3-3 mark. Not only did it nearly double their previous high win total, but their second-place finish in the Colonial Athletic […]
Over the course of the past two weeks, soccer has become a popular topic in the United States. At the Major League Soccer All-Star Game, MLS Commissioner Don Garber announced that there would be four more teams added to the league. “As MLS enters a period of accelerated growth,” Garber explained, “the addition of new […]
Rarely does a country have the opportunity to host a FIFA World Cup, and rarely does a country have the opportunity to host the Summer Olympic Games. Even more rare, and almost unprecedented, is the opportunity to host the World Cup and the Olympics only two years apart. This is the opportunity that Brazil will […]
Drexel’s Good Idea Fund and Sport Management Student Union came together to host Ethan Zohn May 28 in the Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building. Through the course of his lecture, Zohn shared the life lessons he learned from his experience as a philanthropist, two-time cancer survivor and winner of the third season of “Survivor.” Many of […]
