The host Drexel women’s lacrosse team defeated George Mason, 9-3, Sunday in Colonial Athletic Association game.
The Dragons (9-6, 3-3) outshot the Patriots (3-13, 0-7) 24-18 and won 10 draw controls to George Mason’s four. Drexel is 6-3 at Vidas Field.
Senior Katie Blazer led the Dragons with three goals. Junior Charlotte Wood (Conestoga) posted a pair of goals and assists for Drexel. Wood is one goal shy of recording her 100th career goal. Teammate Alyse Maiden also knocked in two goals.
The Dragons started a 5-0 run after an unassisted goal by Maiden in the opening minute of the game. With five minute remaining in the first half, George Mason’s Madalyn Jamison scored a free position goal. Drexel led by four, 5-1, at half.
In the opening minutes of the second half, Jamison found the back of the cage and closed the gap to three, 5-2. Two minutes later, Wood answered back with an unassisted goal. With less than 20 minutes remaining, George Mason’s Caitlin Formato scored an unassisted goal and looked to create momentum for the Patriots. The Dragons went on a three-goal run and held onto the 9-3 lead until time expired.
Senior goalkeeper Whitney Johnson recorded eight saves. Johnson now has 82 saves on the season. Blazer also led the defense with four groundballs and caused four turnovers.
Delaware 9, Old Dominion 6
A pair of seniors led the way for Blue Hens as Julianna Jeffers (Springfield-Delco) netted a hat trick and goalkeeper Makenzie Worthington matched a career-high with 13 saves to lead the victory in the team’s season finale.
Despite the win, the Hens were knocked out of contention for the four-team CAA tournament. Should either Old Dominion or Drexel win their regular season finale later this week, that would be enough for either the Monarchs or Drexel to earn the No. 4 seed.
Even if both ODU and Drexel lose in their regular season finale, Drexel would win the tiebreaker based on its win over regular season champion Towson earlier this season.
Lisda Bernardini (George School) scored once for ODU.
Maryland 12, North Caroloina 7
All-tourney pick Emily Garrity (Strath Haven) scored once for the Tar Heels in their loss to Maryland in the ACC championship game.
