Drabin's Six Goals Fall Short in Short to Hawks
PHILADELPHIA - St. Bonaventure's Danielle Drabin scored a career-high six goals, but Saint Joseph's (5-8, 1-3 Atlantic 10) rallied for nine straight to turn the tide in a 17-11 Bonnies' loss on Friday.
Four different players scored for St. Bonaventure (3-6, 0-4) over the opening 12 minutes, as the Bonnies jumped out to a 4-2 lead. From there, the Hawks responded to score 13 of the game's next 14 goals - broken only by Drabin's second score - to build a 10-goal cushion with 16:58 to play.
Drabin broke the string on SJU goals with an unassisted marker with 13:47 to play, before adding to her career day with three unanswered to close out the Bona scoring.
Drabin, the team's leading scorer with 26 points on 20 goals and six assists, finished two scores shy of the program's single-game record. It is the most goals in a game since Cara Callahan notched seven at George Washington last season.
The Bonnies return to action on Sunday at No. 10 UMass (13-1, 4-0).
