The Game Story:
PHILADELPHIA - The Saint Joseph's men's lacrosse team led 5-4 at halftime, but fell to Drexel, 10-5, after a 6-0 Dragon's run in the fourth quarter in Wednesday evening's conference opener at Vidas Field. Goalkeeper Chris Moffa made 11 saves in net for the Hawks.

Freshman Johnny Simanski scored his first career-goal 5:45 into the first quarter to get the SJU on the board first. Kyle Williams put the Hawks up 2-0 nearly two minutes later, but Drexel scored two goals in the last four minutes for a 4-4 tie at the end of the first quarter.

The Hawks opened scoring once again in the second period, with goals from Matt Dougherty and Trevor Dougherty to put SJU back up by two, 6-4. Drexel closed the deficit to one a minute later, and after a Hawks goal by Steve Dunn, scored another for a 5-4 SJU lead at the break.

The two teams battled a scoreless third period with Drexel only getting five shots off while Saint Joseph's had four. Moffa made four saves in the frame for the Hawks.

The Dragons opened fire in the fourth quarter, outshooting the Hawks, 14-2, and scored six goals while holding SJU scoreless. Dragons' Scott Perri was too much for Saint Joseph's defense as he scored five of Drexels six goals in the frame.
