The Hofstra University women twice could not hold the lead and suffered a 3-2 Colonial Athletic Association loss to league-leading Drexel University at Vidas Field in Philadelphia on Thursday night.

The Dragons (9-1-3, 4-1-0) rallied from a pair of one goal deficits and scored the final two goals of the game.

Krista Agostinello had a goal and an assist for Hofstra (6-6-2, 1-3-1).

The Pride scored in the second minute as Dagny Run Petursdottir controlled the ball near midfield and sent a pass near the circle to Wiktoria Fronc, who one-timed a through ball to Agostinello. The graduate forward got behind the defense and went around goalkeeper Molly Piso, who came way off her line, and sent a shot into the open net.

Drexel tied the score in the 51st minute on Delaney Lappin’s first goal of the game. The Pride came right back seven minutes later with Olivia Pearse working a give-and-go with Agostinello ending with Pearse burying a tough angled shot into the upper corner to put the Pride back on top, 2-1.

The Dragons answered again in the 69th minute as Lappin tallied. They scored the game-winner in the 75th minute on a goal from Isabel Kuzy on a long shot that went over leaping goalkeeper Skylar Kuzmich into the upper left corner.

Piso finished with six saves. Kuzmich had two saves.

Hofstra will wrap up a four-game road swing at the University of Delaware on Sunday at 1 p.m.
