The game looked to be headed to the break with the Dragons enjoying a one-goal lead but Uribe converted a free-position shot with just 11 seconds to go in the half.
The Dragons were not finished, though, as Drexel took the draw and Lawson broke free toward the net. She rifled a shot in as the first-half horn rang and was awarded the goal after a short discussion by the officials.
With Drexel holding a 6-3 lead, the Dragons looked to close the game early as Uribe tacked on her second goal of the game less than four minutes into the second period while Lawson followed with her fourth goal of the game to put the home squad up 8-3.
The Colonials scored two of the next three goals to bring the score to 9-5 with 17:30 remaining but it was as close as the guests would come as Kelli Joran (Downingtown East) and Lawson added to the Drexel tally to put the game out of reach at 11-5. Joy scored for George Washington following Joran and Lawson’s strikes and the Dragons closed the game with goals from substitutes Morgan Holbrook (Bayard Rustin) and Alyse Maiden. Ali Allen (Phoenixville) also scored for Drexel.
