Drexel Pulls Away from Longwood in Second Half

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. Longwood dropped an 18-8 road game at Drexel Wednesday afternoon. Junior Jamie Brentlinger|Gambrills, Md. (Arundel) continued, yet again, to lead the Lancers on offense as she tallied two points on two goals, while sophomore Lauren Prasnicki|Lexington (Rockbridge County) also earned two points on one goal and one assist. Longwood (1-5) will face Albany on Friday, March 16 at 4:00 p.m.

Although Drexel held a 20-10 advantage in shots through the first half, the score remained close as the Dragons led 7-5 at halftime. The second half was another story as Drexel held the Lancers to just seven shots and three draw controls. Longwood also gave up a season-high 23 turnovers and allowed a season-high 43 shots through both halves.

Drexel charged out to a five-goal lead between 27:02 and 16:50 in the first half before Longwood answered by netting four-straight between 13:25 and 9:22, closed out by Prasnicki's goal. With 6:07 and 3:42 remaining, the Dragons scored their final two goals of the half before Brentlinger scored her first goal of the game with 1:37 on the clock to finish out the half.

Drexel's seven-goal run in the second period that started at 27:50 and ended at 12:48 put them ahead 15-6, and the Lancers couldn't recover as the Dragon's stringent defense kept them out of the net.

Junior transfer Mollie Zimmerman|Fairpoint, N.Y. (Monroe CC|Catawba College) made a season-high 18 saves in net, collecting one ground ball. Sophomore Mary Barondess|Centreville, (Westfield) registered a team-high five draw controls and two caused turnovers while also tying with senior Hannah Riggs|Eden Prairie, Minn. (Eden Prairie) for the most team ground balls. Riggs scored one goal in the loss as did seniors Jessica Rudloff|West Chester, Pa. (West Chester) and Sam Stifler|Jarrettsville, Md.
