PHILADELPHIA – The Drexel field hockey team dropped a 4-0 decision to the visiting No. 19 Delaware Blue Hens under the lights at Buckley Field. The Dragons created a number of looks on the attacking end, however, were unable to overcome Delaware's three-goal run in the second half moving to 12-6 overall and 3-2 in the Colonial Athletic Association. The Blue Hens improved to 13-4 and lead the league with an unblemished 6-0 record.<br />
<br />
Four minutes after the opening whistle, Delaware's Michaela Patzner was awarded a penalty stroke. Drexel's Jantien Gunter looked to block the incoming shot with her stick, yet the ball continued to roll over the goal line giving the Blue Hens an early 1-0 advantage. Delaware's goalkeeper Sarah Scher came up with four saves to keep the Dragons off of the scoreboard in the first 35 minutes of play.<br />
<br />
Early in the second half, Delaware's Kasey Prettyman deflected the ball into the upper netting of the cage. The Blue Hen's earned a 2-0 lead. In the 53rd minute of play, Drexel set up for its second penalty corner of the half. Sophomore Jenna Knouse fired a shot towards the bottom corner of the goal until Scher made a diving save and knocked the ball out towards the end line.<br />
<br />
In the 57th minute of play, Patzner recovered Gunter's initial save and flicked the rebounded ball into the back of the net. Less than a minute later, the Blue Hen's drew a penalty corner. Gunter saved opposing forward Jacki Coveleski's direct hit from the top of the circle. Winesett chipped the loose ball just underneath the crossbar scoring Delaware's final point of the night, 4-0.<br />
<br />
Junior goalkeeper Jantien Gunter tallied six saves. She now has 96 stops on the season. Opposing goalkeeper Sarah Scher turned away seven shots for the shutout. On the attacking end, Drexel senior co-captain Elise DiDonato finished with a team-high two shots.<br />

The Dragons will host the Towson Tigers on November 3 at 1:00 p.m. on Senior Day.
