Philadelphia, Pa. - Drexel scored three times in a span of 25 seconds in the fourth quarter and came from behind to defeat Delaware, 11-10, at Vidas Field. The 14th-ranked Dragons, who trailed by as many as five goals in the second half, scored six fourth-quarter goals to stun the Blue Hens and win their fourth straight game.....The Dragons (8-2, 3-0 CAA) were down 9-6 with 10:32 to play after a Nick Diachenko goal for the Hens (2-8, 0-3 CAA). The Dragons started a 5-0 run just 25 seconds later when Robert Church scored an unassisted goal, his 21st of the season. Drexel got the crowd back in the game when it trimmed the lead to one with 6:32 remaining. Aaron Prosser fed Ryan Belka, who fired a shot from the perimeter past Delaware keeper Conor Peaks.....Belka and Prosser again hooked up on a goal, this time with Belka setting up Prosser, to tie the score at 9-9 with just 2:38 left. On the ensuing face-off, Drexel's Nick Saputo, who struggled in the first half, won the face-off cleanly and sprinted towards the Delaware cage. He fired a shot low past the Blue Hens keeper to put Drexel ahead for the first time since early in the first quarter.....Twenty seconds later, Drexel got an insurance goal. Frank Fusco had the ball in the corner behind the net and lofted a pass to a streaking Ben McIntosh. The junior went in alone and gave Drexel an 11-9 advantage with 2:13 on the clock. The Dragons would need that as Delaware wasted little time in trying to mount a comeback of its own. Diachenko scored his second of the quarter with less than two minutes to play, making it an 11-10 game.....The Hens had one last chance to tie when they got possession in the Drexel end and called time with nine seconds remaining. However, Delaware was unable to get a shot on goal after moving the ball around and having a last ditch effort from outside the box go high as time expired.
