White Lifts No. 7 Virginia Over Drexel in Overtime Thriller

Marino became the sixth first-year to start a season-opening game in goal for Virginia since men's lacrosse became an NCAA Championship sport in 1971. He is also the seventh first-year overall at Virginia to start any game as a rookie inside the cage. Marino commenced his career with 15 saves, breaking a program record in the Drexel series. Rob Fortunato (2011) and Bob Catzen (1947) previously shared the mark against Drexel with 12.

Virginia defeated Drexel in shots (52-43), ground balls (44-37) and had fewer turnovers (14-17). Faceoffs were even (14-14).

Virginia returns to action on Tuesday night when VMI travels to Klöckner Stadium. Faceoff is slated for 7:00 p.m.
