Despite collecting eight hits in game one, the Hawks stranded seven runners and settled with three runs on the board.

Junior Samantha Casarez (Sylmar, Calif.) went 2-of-4 with a RBI while fellow classmate Sarah Maldonado (Carson, Calif.) produced a RBI and run scored in a losing effort.

Drexel’s Linda Rush delivered a solo shot to left center and put the Dragons ahead early, 1-0.

In the third, Drexel capitalized on an Eastern Shore miscue and doubled their advantage, 2-0.

Top five, Maldonado’s RBI-single to left center brought home sophomore MacKenzie Brown (Bayonne, N.J.) and put Maryland Eastern Shore on the board, 2-1.
