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.

The first term that came to mind when summing up Peyton Sventy isn't exactly scientific, but it's telling of what makes for a consistent lacrosse program. "Peyton is just one of those lax-for-lifers," Rancocas Valley girls' coach Sara Shelley said. "She loves playing, she's eager to play in college, and she works hard every day. " In other words, Sventy is something of a model for the type of player Shelley has seen more of over the last few seasons, as her program has reached new levels of success and consistency.

Shortly after the members of the Penn women's lacrosse team walked off the field following a sound beating (12-6) by Virginia in the first round of last year's NCAA tournament, coach Karin Corbett delivered the same message to her despondent players that she had given them all season. "We were sloppy all season long, and it finally caught up to us against a very good ACC team," Corbett said. "We were young last season, and every time we talked about cleaning up our game, the girls were kind of like, 'Yeah, whatever.' "Looking back," the Quakers coach continued, "that might have been the best thing that could have happened to us. All season long I didn't have to spend too much time on that.

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.

WINNING HAS become the tradition for Penn's women's lacrosse team. This year is no different. The Quakers compiled a 12-4 record, going 6-1 to win the Ivy League and secure their eighth straight trip to the NCAA Tournament. They play Canisius in the first round today at 4 p.m. in College Park, Md. This season's berth was not without trials and tribulations. The No. 7 Quakers had their share of distractions, which led to losses in games that could have propelled them into the national spotlight.

PENN'S MEN'S lacrosse team found itself in a familiar situation in the Ivy League championship game against Harvard. The Quakers got off to a slow start, and were trailing the Crimson, 4-0, before the first quarter ended. As in many games this season before the May 4 matchup, the Quakers collected themselves and turned the game around. They let in only one more goal over the next 45 minutes to seal a 7-5 win and clinch their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2011. The Quakers, ranked second in the country, will host No. 11 Drexel on Sunday at Franklin Field (3 p.m., ESPNU)

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.

The third quarter ended, and Washington boys' lacrosse coach Jack Creighton turned toward his bench in search of his starting goalie. Robert Franklin sat there alone, with ice on one of his shins. Creighton asked him to walk onto the field. The coach did not need Franklin to reenter the game. "Need you to sign for me, please," Creighton said. Franklin's replacement, sophomore Paul Thiergartner, is deaf. And the Eagles coach wanted to give him instructions before the fourth quarter began.
