Drexel's "Blue" Squad entered Sunday's game ready for a win against Millersville University after a 3 week holiday break. The Dragons and Marauders came out for a hard fought 1st period with both teams skating tough and challenging for every loose puck while goalie Dave Gatter stopped 9 of 10 shots faced. The 2nd period began with the Dragons down 1-0, but they soon equalized the score on a goal from forward Jared Pagets. Millersville quickly responded and began to build momentum with goals both at even strength and on the powerplay. However, the Dragons relentless offensive pressure spurred back-to-back powerplays, allowing Drexel multiple chances on a 4-on-2 powerplay, which yielded two quick goals from Kris Linares and Justin Agren. With these scores, Drexel was right back in the competition. Unfortunately, 1 minute worth of mental mistakes within Drexel's defensive zone during a minute, early in the 3rd period, led to two quick Millersville goals and Drexel was unable to respond. When it was all said and done, Drexel fell 6-3 to Millersville.

Drexel Blue vs Drexel Gold
Each Drexel team found themselves in an unusual matchup this past Sunday: they were facing off against each other in a matchup bound to occur with each team playing in the same division. Despite the circumstances, each team approached the game with similarly high levels of intensity as the "Blue" squad demonstrated strong defensive positioning against a well organized "Gold" attack. The "Gold" squad eventually broke down the defense half way through the period as wily veteran and club president, Dylan Jervis found the net. "Gold" continued to build their lead with goals from newcomer and team-leading scorer, Kyle Henofer, as well as alternate captain, Jeff Kelley, the latter of whom scored on a wicked wrister that went top cheese on the opposing goalie's glove-side. The more defensively-minded "Blue" squad found themselves on the scoresheet in the 2nd period as "Tasty" Ruben Guzman rallied his side with his first career goal as a Dragon. In such a low scoring affair, goaltending figured heavily in the outcome, a point best illustrated by "Blue" goalie Dave Gatter's robbery of "Gold" forward Jeff Conway late in the game to keep the score close. However, in the end too many 1st period mistakes led to a loss for the "Blue" side.

Drexel Blue vs Villanova W 5-3
This past Sunday, Drexel's "Blue" squad found themselves matched up against familiar foe in the Villanova Wildcats. Clearly ready for the challenge, Drexel opened the scoring early as Senior Steve Calabro netted his first of two goals during the period. With strong puck movement in the offensive zone, the Dragons widened the gap with hard fought goals down low from newcomers Victor Haeffner and Kevin Zakszewsk. Despite excellent goaltending from Dave Gatter throughout the game, the Wildcats were eventually able to break through and get on the board late into the second period. However, despite two more late goals by Villanova, the Dragons were able to close out the game for their first win of the season, 5-3.
Drexel Gold vs Cabrini University W 5-0
Drexel “Gold” played a full hockey game against Cabrini University, suffocating them offensively and defensively. Within the first three minutes, senior Brendan Mullen found the short-side of the net to give Drexel an early 1-0 lead. Drexel continued to set up in the offensive zone play after play, but Cabrini goaltender Christopher Treat managed to stop the remainder of the shots in the first period. After Cabrini’s roughing penalty in the second period, senior Dylan Jervis found the back of the net off of a wicked slapshot for the power play goal, which was immediately followed by a snipe from junior Jeff Kelley to increase the lead to 3. Drexel continued the strong play in the third period with a quick power play goal by sophomore Kyle Henofer. Drexel then displayed their defensive skills by killing two penalties in the third, and ultimately scoring again by sophomore Raymond Rindone to bring the lead to 5. Goaltender James Halko made save-after-save, stopping all 26 shots including a last minute two-on-zero one-timer save to earn his second shutout of the season.
