In the second half, Joseph fed Shane Howard (Co. Carlow, Ireland) to give the Monarchs their third goal of the night.

ODU outshot Drexel, 11-10. The Monarchs defense led by Jason Loizou, Nane Joseph, Alex De John (Malboro, NJ.) and Adam Roscioli (Forest, Va.) helped ODU keeper Evan Newton (Virginia Beach, Va.) register his eighth shutout of the season. Newton had five saves on the night.

Joseph and Smith are tied for the team lead in total points with 13. Joseph has five goals on three assists, while Smith has four goals and five assists. Shane Howard is next with 12 points and he leads the team with six assists. Newton's goals against average is 0.78.

Tonight was the final regular season home game for seniors Adrian LeRoy (Ontario, Canada), Nane Joseph (Yaounde, Cameroon), Jason Loizou (Virginia Beach, Va.), Ambane Emmanuel (Yaounde, Cameroon), and Bobby Foglesong (Fredericksburg, Va.).
