IT TOOK just 11 seconds for the tone of Drexel's first NCAA lacrosse tournament game to change drastically. The Dragons used a ferocious late first-half run that carried over into an outstanding second half to pummel Penn, 16-11, at Franklin Field yesterday. It all started when Drexel's Jules Raucci put a shot in the top left corner past Penn goalie Brian Feeney with 17 seconds left in the first half to pull the Dragons within 6-5. Midfielder Nick Saputo won the ensuing face off cleanly, sprinted down into the offensive zone and buried a shot with 12 seconds left on the clock to tie it. He jogged right back to midfield to take the next faceoff.

Nick Saputo isn't known for his scoring, but the Drexel junior is adept at faceoffs. In the biggest game of his college career, he excelled at both. Saputo entered Sunday's game with three goals, but he added three in the first half and was a faceoff force in leading Drexel to a 16-11 win over fourth-seeded Penn in a first-round NCAA men's lacrosse tournament game at Franklin Field. This was the first NCAA tournament game for the Dragons (13-4), the Colonial Athletic Association tourney champions, who will face fifth-seeded Denver in Sunday's quarterfinal at 2:30 p.m. at the University of Delaware.

Drexel must have felt as if there was a target on its back throughout the 76th Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta, and the Dragons' rowers in the closing events of Saturday's storm-delayed championship races on the Schuylkill had to be sensing it. But if the Dragons' women's varsity heavyweight eight crew was feeling any pressure, it certainly didn't show it, hanging on for a gutty, second-place finish to help lead its team to the overall points title of...

The main purpose of Friday's heats at the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta is to advance and put your team in a position for a chance at rowing for a championship on Saturday afternoon. But if your team also can post the fastest time in a marquee event like the men's varsity heavyweight eight, well, that's a little added bonus giving other crews something to think about. Drexel, the defending overall and men's points champion, advanced 11 boats Friday during a near-ideal day on the Schuylkill.

If there were any doubts about whom the Penn men's lacrosse team turns to in a pinch, those questions were answered in the Ivy League tournament. The Quakers (11-3), who will host Drexel (12-4) on Sunday at Franklin Field in the first round of the NCAA tournament, needed a prime-time performance out of all-Ivy League midfielder Zack Losco and got just that. With Penn trailing Cornell by 10-7 after three quarters, Losco, a two-time first-team all-Ivy selection, scored four goals in the fourth quarter as the Quakers gained an 11-10 semifinal victory.

John Pieper could have taken the safe choice out of high school and attended Air Force, but there was something intriguing about Drexel and its fledgling rowing program. "They'd only had their varsity program for a couple of years," Pieper, now a senior with the Dragons, said Thursday. "They had no big titles, no big names in rowing. In one sense, it definitely was a gamble choosing Drexel. But what I saw was a young team that had a lot of passion behind it. The athletic department was putting a lot of time, energy, money, and resources into the program.

ROWING HAS always been a big part of Philadelphia sporting culture. Ever since the conception of Boathouse Row in 1858, the Schuylkill River and Kelly Drive have been a fixture of the deep passion the city has for rowing. This weekend, the river will be overtaken by more than 120 teams from around the country that will compete in the 76th Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta. "Rowing infiltrates the town," said Paul Savell, Drexel's director of rowing. "It is the largest collegiate regatta in the country.

DREXEL'S BEN McIntosh will have the same routine on Sunday as he would for any other of his lacrosse games in Philadelphia. He is going to sleep in a little bit, eat a big meal before the game, get to the stadium early to warm up, and lead his team into battle. The routine is the same, but everything else is different. Instead of heading to the comforts of Vidas Field, the home of the Dragons, he will be heading south a few blocks to Franklin Field to take on Penn in the first NCAA Tournament game in Drexel lacrosse history.
