Two games into her college career, rookie Anna Salvucci already has a lot to celebrate.
The Glen Mills, Pa. native who starred at Episcopal Academy and for Penn Fusion Academy in high school, volleyed home a long cross from Lauren Currey (Harrisburg, Pa.) in the 98th minute to seal a 1-0 win for the Dragons over Villanova on Thursday.
The goal was the ninth shot Drexel’s attack registered on goal for the day and spoiled a standout performance for Wildcats goalkeeper Megan McClay, who finished with 8 saves.
