Rutgers takes overtime win on the road vs. Drexel

If you combined the intensity of last week’s game and the game this past weekend, the Rutgers women’s lacrosse team have been involved in some of the most thrilling matches of the year so far. After going down to the wire with Penn, which saw the Scarlet Knights (3-3) bring a five-goal deficit to one with over six minutes remaining to play, the Knights defeated the Drexel Dragons (3-2) on the road in overtime, winning 9-8 on a sudden death goal. Although Rutgers ultimately lost their game to No. 10 Penn, they took that second half momentum used it as fuel to grind out a win against the Dragons in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania this past Saturday. “It wasn’t the prettiest game” said head coach Laura Brand-Sias, “it wasn’t something where the ball was bouncing in our favor as much as we would like, but we did continue to fight and it is a huge thing to walk away with a W, especially in overtime.” Drexel got on the board first, scoring less than two minutes into the game, but Rutgers responded, scoring back to back unassisted goals thanks to freshman midfielder Samantha Budd and junior midfielder Paige Paratore. The Dragons quickly tied up the game, scoring less again in less than two minutes, bringing the score to 2-2, with 19:29 remaining in the first half.
