Although it has never hit the local sports radar the way it did this spring with its first NCAA tournament run, the Drexel men's lacrosse program has been playing in West Philadelphia for 72 seasons. This season, however, which ended Sunday in the tournament quarterfinals, when heavily favored Denver ran off eight unanswered goals on the way to a 15-6 victory, was replete with firsts for the Dragons. Drexel (13-5) matched its season high in victories and won the Colonial Athletic Association tournament for the first time.

NEWARK, Del. - As the clocked ticked down to zero yesterday at the University of Delaware, all the Drexel men's lacrosse team could do was watch. Denver ran out the clock and commenced its modest celebration as Dragons coach Brian Voelker and his team watched, heads hanging heavy. Denver made sure early on that all Drexel would be able to do is watch, as the Pioneers dominated every facet of the game en route to a 15-6 win in the second round of the Division I NCAA Tournament.

NEWARK, Del. - Later on, as time passes and the other things in life become more important than a game, the players on the Drexel lacrosse team will undoubtedly have a greater appreciation for what they accomplished during their historic 2014 season. But yesterday, in the moments after losing, 15-6, to second-ranked Denver University in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Tournament, it was still too painful to look beyond what had happened on Tubby Raymond Field at the University of Delaware.

NEWARK, Del. - The start, like the entire season, was so promising for the Drexel men's lacrosse team, but eventually the experience and talent of Denver won out. After Drexel took a 3-2 lead on a goal by Nick Trizano with 5 minutes, 35 seconds remaining in the first quarter, No. 5-seeded Denver turned on the afterburners. The Pioneers scored the next 10 goals Sunday in a 15-6 victory over Drexel in an NCAA quarterfinal at Delaware Stadium. Drexel's Ben McIntosh finally ended the drought when he scored his 100th career goal with 6:12 left in the third period.

Drexel is embracing its underdog role. The Dragons did it last week against Penn before eliminating the Quakers in their first appearance in the NCAA men's lacrosse tournament. Heading into Sunday's quarterfinal meeting with streaking Denver they are equally welcoming of that role. "This team has been to the final four - they have been ranked ahead of us all year," Drexel coach Brian Voelker said. "I don't think anybody is expecting us to win this game. But I think everybody here on our team believes we can do it. It is going to take a special effort.

Drexel midfielder Nick Saputo is much more at home doing the dirty work of collecting ground balls rather than scoring goals. But as halftime approached Sunday in Drexel's clash with neighborhood rival Penn in the first round of the NCAA Division I lacrosse tournament, the sluggish Dragons trailed the Quakers, 6-4. Saputo helped provide the shot in the arm the Dragons needed, scoring two of the Dragons' three goals in the final 17 seconds of...

DREXEL'S lacrosse team was flying high after its 16-11 upset win over city rival Penn in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. It was, and is, a big moment for the Dragons, who are in their first postseason in school history. Even though they are excited about advancing, they know there is more to accomplish. "We are excited," head coach Brian Voelker said. "Obviously, it was a big win, and we want to keep this thing moving. I think it is exciting to be here, but we don't want to be satisfied.

AS SOON as Drexel's lacrosse team concluded practice on Tuesday, Nick Saputo made his way off the turf field. He hit the showers, and traded in his helmet and jersey for a green button-down shirt and khaki pants. The junior midfielder was on his way to his co-op job at Sunoco in South Philadelphia. It is not the average day for a 21-year-old, but it is why he chose Drexel. After freshman year, Drexel co-op students alternate 6-month periods of full-time study and full-time employment with university-approved employers.

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.
