The Drexel women's soccer team opened its Colonial Athletic Association schedule with a 1-0 win at Vidas Field. The teams played the match in difficult weather conditions as heavy rain peppered the field throughout the match.

Drexel got on the board early in the contest. In the eight minute Jess Lowinger was fed a ball down the left side. She tracked it down just outside the 18 and served it across the box to Sam Greenfield. The sophomore picked it out of the air and beat a diving Kellianne Collins to her left to give the Dragons the games only goal. That goal came just minutes after Georgia State's Jewel Evans hit the post. Drexel outshot the Panthers, 12-2, in the first half.
 
Georgia State applied some early pressure in the second half but the Drexel defense held the Panthers to limited opportunites. Neither team was able to score in the second half. Drexel keepers Victoria Troccoli and Eve Badana combined on the shutout. Overall, Drexel outshot the Panthers, 20-8. Kellianne Collins kept the Panthers in the match by making eight saves.

Drexel is back on Vidas Field on Sunday afternoon. UNC Wilmington visits Philadelphia for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
