No. 13 Penn (5-0) couldn’t muster any semblance of momentum in the first half of its game at Drexel (1-4) on Tuersday, but a switch was flipped at halftime and Penn dominated the final period en route to a 16-11 win in a Philadelphia rivalry game.

The Quakers trailed, 5-2, late in the first half but found some momentum off an Abby Bosco goal with 0:13 left in the first period. Erin Barry would follow with the first goal of the second half and Penn suddenly found itself within one at 5-4.

The Dragons would twice regain two-goal leads early in the second half, but a Gabby Rosenzweig (four goals, two assists) goal with 22:54 to play started a 10-0 Penn run which ultimately resulted in a 15-7 Penn lead. Caroline Cummings (four goals) scored three times in that run for Penn, a personal 3-0 spurt in a span of 1:21 which led to the 15-7 lead.

Erin Barry had three goals for Penn.

Maggie Stetson (Conestoga) had three goals for Drexel. Caroline Cummings, Karson Harris and Colleen Grady each scored twice.

Lehigh 16, Virginia Commonwealth 10

Lehigh scored double-figure goals for a sixth straight game to begin the season while holding VCU to just three goals over the game’s first 45:38, on its way to a convincing win on Tuesday afternoon at Lafayette’s Fisher Stadium. Junior Kellie Gough led Lehigh’s offense with a career-high six goals, the most goals by a Mountain Hawk since April of 2017 while the Mountain Hawks’ defense caused 17 of the Rams’ 24 turnovers on the afternoon.

Also fro Lehigh, Sondra Dickey (Conestoga) had three goals and an assist, Courtney Henig (Notre Dame-NJ) had a goal and two assists, Haley Wentzel (Boyertown) and Jane Henderson (Harriton) each scored twice and Julianne Puckette (Radnor) had three assists,

Navy 16, St. Joseph’s 11

Leading by one heading into the final 21 minutes of play, #11/8 Navy scored six of the game’s next seven goals to pull away and hand the Hawks a loss on Sweeney Field. With the loss, the Hawks fall to 2-3 while the Midshipmen improve to 5-1.

The game had originally been scheduled for Wednesday, March 7 at 3:00 p.m. but was moved up a day due to the unfavorable weather forecast.

Junior midfielders Rebecca Lane and Hayley Sabol paced the Hawks with two goals and one assist apiece while junior attacker Francesca Donato (Neshaminy) and freshman attacker Stephanie Kelly each hit the back of the net twice.

Division II

West Chester 16, Tiffin 3

A contest that was moved up one day to avoid a nor’easter, 24th-ranked Tiffin was caught up in a whirlwind storm created by No. 14 West Chester as the host Golden Rams downed the visiting Dragons at Vonnie Gros Field Tuesday afternoon.

West Chester (3-0) scored the first nine goals of the game and never looked back against Tiffin (1-2), which was coming off the biggest upset in school history over 8th-ranked East Stroudsburg in overtime on Sunday.

However, junior midfielder Maggie Stella (Central Bucks East) scored a career-high four goals, including a hat trick in the first 11 minutes of the game, and Sami Barnett (Interboro) added three goals and three assists to lead the offensive charge. Tatum Altman also tallied four times while adding one assist.

The Golden Rams won seven of the first 10 draw controls in the game to dominate the time of possession. The hosts parlayed that success (winning each of the first three draws) into three goals in the first five minutes of the game, before Tiffin ever had a chance to go on the attack. Freshman Drew McKinney (Downingtown West) picked up a season-high 10 draws as the Golden Rams, who won the overall draw control battle, 15-6, did their most damage in the opening half by winning 10 of the 15 draws.
