Dana Wilber scored with 3:14 left and Mark Manos made a save with 11 seconds left as host Drexel rallied to beat Hofstra, 6-5, last night in CAA men's lacrosse.

Wilber forced a turnover -- a groundball that was recovered by teammate Chris Farquhar -- and scored seconds later. Drexel scored four unanswered goals from 5:54 of the third quarter to come from behind and halt Hofstra's two-game win streak.

Tyler Begley's goal had given the 19th-ranked Pride a 5-2 lead with 6:57 left in the third. But goals by Robert Church and Andrew Vivian pulled the Dragons within one at the end of the third. Deven Thomas, after scooping a groundball, scored to tie it at 5 with 14:54 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Robert Church had two goals and an assist, and Thomas added a goal and an assist to lead the Dragons (4-5, 2-0). Manos made 11 saves, including a stop of Mike DeNapoli's shot in the waning seconds to hold the lead.

Adrian Sorichetti had a goal and an assist for Hofstra (4-4, 1-1). Tyler Johnston, Steve Serling and DeNapoli each added a goal. John Antoniades won 7 of 15 faceoffs and Andrew Gvozden made 10 saves.

Hofstra had enjoyed convincing wins over Delaware and St. John's last week. The Pride will host Towson at 7 p.m. next Saturday.
