      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Men’s Soccer Assistant Jon Scheer Honored by NSCAA as One of the Nation’s Top Young Coaches
       
      DATE:  June 25, 2014
      sws:
       
      KANSAS CITY, Kan.  --  University of Delaware men's soccer assistant coach Jon Scheer, who helped lead the Blue Hens to their second NCAA Tournament appearance in three years this past fall, has been honored as one of the nation’s top young soccer coaches. 
       
      Scheer, who completed his fourth year on head coach Ian Hennessy’s staff this past season, was recently recognized by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) as part of its 30 Under 30 Program. Scheer was one of 15 male coaches selected as the profession’s next generation of top coaches from a list of 600 applicants. 
       
      The 30 Under 30 program was started in 2013 and is a year-long education and mentorship opportunity for a select few up-and-comers who have made soccer coaching their career of choice. The program was created to support fledgling coaches and foster their growth at a crucial point in their vocation. Thirty coaches were selected, 15 men and 15 women.
       
      “It’s great that our University and athletic department is turning out this caliber of coach,” said Hennessy, who led the 2013 squad to a 14-5-1 record, a national Top 30 ranking, and an at-large berth into the NCAA Tournament. “It’s been an incredible year of achievement for Jon, all the more remarkable given his young age. I had him pegged as a future coach, even during his playing years, and I can’t tell you how proud I am of him to see him grow so quickly into one of the most recognized assistants in the nation. It has been a good year for him.” 
       
      Scheer, who back in the fall was also named the South Atlantic Region Assistant Coach of the Year by the NSCAA,  was one of just five collegiate coaches honored by the NSCAA for its 30-Under-30 club. 
       
      Other men’s coaches honored were Eddie Ababio (Fishhawk Soccer Club, Morgan Cathey (Whitworth University), Luis Cordova (Wylie High School), Jeremy Hayes (Mountain Vista High School), Barat Killian (Cook Inlet Soccer Club), Trey Livingston (Montgomery College), Peter Mills (Bowdoin College), Pedro Osorio (Long Beach State University), Eric Perilla (Miami United Soccer Club), Joshua Pfeil (The F.C. Elite Soccer Club), James Quijano (Ajax Eastbay Club), Matthew Ream (Bavarian Soccer Club), Sharif Saber (West Chester United Soccer Club), and Mark Spiegel (South Central Soccer Academy).
       
      As a student-athlete, Scheer started three of his four seasons and earned the rank of captain in 2009 and 2010. He was also awarded team Most Valuable Player honors in 2010 and led the Blue Hens to the CAA post-season tournament while earning All-CAA second team honors.
       
      Scheer has aided the Blue Hens in making it to the NCAA Tournament twice in three years, as well as winning the CAA for the first time in his first season as assistant coach in 2009. In his first appearance in the NCAA Tournament, the Blue Hens stunned 2009 national champion Virginia in Charlottesville, Va. in the first round before losing to eventual final four participant UCLA in the final minutes of regulation in the second round. 
       
      This past season Scheer helped Delaware host its first NCAA Tournament game in over 40 years as the Blue Hens took on St. John’s before falling 2-1 in overtime in front of an overflow crowd. The Blue Hens are 33-22-6 since Scheer made the transition from player to assistant coach. During his previous three years as an assistant the Blue Hens have set numerous records, including single season goals, assists, and corner kicks.

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Women’s Soccer to Kickoff 25th Season of Competition Tonight at Home vs. Monmouth
       
      DATE:  August 22, 2014
      sws:
       
      NEWARK, Del.  -- A historic season for the University of Delaware women’s soccer program will kickoff tonight, Friday, Aug. 22, when the Blue Hens open their 25th season by hosting Monmouth University at newly-named Stuart & Suzanne Grant Stadium at 7 p.m.
       
      Admission to all UD soccer games is free. Fans are reminded that seating will be limited in the stands while Grant Stadium (formerly known as Delaware Mini-Stadium) undergoes major renovations, but ample seating space is available for personal chairs to be placed on the track area. 
       
      Delaware welcomes back 14 players with starting experience from a club that went 9-7-3 and advanced to the first round of the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament. The Blue Hens have advanced to the CAA Tournament each of the last three years and a fourth straight trip is set squarely in the team’s sights. 
       
      “We’ve had a great preseason,” said Delaware head coach Scott Grzenda, the only head coach in the 25-year history of a program that played its first varsity season back in 1990. “The team worked very hard over the summer and it shows in our fitness and mental preparedness.”
       
      Among the group are six players who started 12 or more games a year ago led by senior defender Allegra Gray and junior midfielder Emily Market. Both Gray and Parker earned All-CAA honors a year ago and were named to the preseason All-CAA team was well. Delaware was picked to finish sixth in the conference in the preseason coaches poll. 
       
      “Our team always has the expectation of winning the conference,” said Grzenda, who has posted 222 wins over his 24 seasons. “We need to put ourselves in the position of participating in the conference tournament and then winning the automatic bid. 
       
      “We are very excited to welcome five new freshmen to go along with our 11 sophomores and nine upperclassman,” Grzenda continued. “Even though we will be young, our upperclassmen bring plenty of experience. Our experience is in our back line with Allegra, Maddie Parker, and Alison Slark all returning from great years in 2013. Allegra should compete for (CAA) defensive player of the year and we will rely heavily on her leadership. We are looking for Andi Arnold and Emily Market to anchor our midfield along with some very talented sophomores and freshmen. 
       
      “Our freshman class is very strong and all of them will compete for playing time this fall,” said Grzenda. “With the loss of Shannon Kearney, we will look to Natalie Zelenky to pick up some of the slack. Rachel Vaccaro and Maddie Brosler along with our freshmen Krista Trinidad and Gina Tricocci will also need to put in a few goals. At keeper, we are very strong with senior Jess Figueroa, junior Kelsey O’Donnell, and redshirt freshman Kailyn Rekos pushing each other for the starting role (to replace Jess Levy).”
       
      The Blue Hens will be looking to post their first-ever win over Monmouth, which owns a 5-0 all-time mark against Delaware, including a 1-0 win last year in West Long Branch, N.J. The Hawks tied a school record with 17 victories a year ago when they went 8-0-2 in league play, capturing the MAAC regular season and tournament titles and advancing to the NCAA Tournament. Monmouth posted an incredible 16 shutouts on the season and eight starters return from that squad.

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Women’s Soccer Gets Late Goal from Market to Down Monmouth 3-2 in Season Opener
       
      DATE:  August 22, 2014
       
      NEWARK, Del.  --  The University of Delaware women’s soccer team got the 2014 athletics season off to a successful start Friday night as a goal by Emily Market with just 2:26 left to play lifted the Blue Hens to a 3-2 non-league victory over Monmouth at Stuart & Suzanne Grant Stadium. 
       
      Market, a preseason All-Colonial Athletic Association forward, snuck the ball under the hands of Monmouth goalkeeper Nicole D’Agostino from 15 yards out to break the second tie of the game and send the Blue Hens to their first season-opening win since a 7-0 victory over Delaware State in 2010. 
       
      Delaware (1-0), which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this fall since the program’s first season in 1990, downed the Hawks (0-1) for the first time in six tries. Monmouth went 17-2-2 last season when it captured the MAAC title and advanced to the NCAA Tournament thanks to a school-record 16 shutouts. 
       
      “At times we played very well tonight,” said Delaware head coach Scott Grzenda. “It was nice to come out and work as hard as we did and come back twice to put them away tonight. When you have 14 shots it means you’ve created a lot of opportunities. Emily was able to keep the ball low (on the winning shot), put pressure on the keeper, and it went in.”
       
      Delaware jumped out to a 1-0 lead on senior Rachel Vaccaro’s first career goal just 18:08 into the game but Monmouth came back to tie the game on a goal by Alexa Freguletti with just under five minutes remaining in the half. 
       
      The Hens went up again 2-1 on a goal by Natalie Zelenky off a feed from Andi Arnold just 6:38 into the second half, but the Hawks answered once again when Freguletti connected on a penalty kick with 28:13 remaining. 
       
      Hen Scratchings: Market’s goal was her fifth career score...Arnold dished out two assists, having also helped on Market’s game-winner...Delaware sophomore goalkeeper Kailyn Rekos posted two saves and picked up the win in her first career start...Delaware returns to action Sunday at St. Francis (Pa.) at 12 noon. 
       
      AGATE:
       
      Monmouth.....1....1.....2
      Delaware.......1....2.....3
       
      Scoring: 1st Half - D - Rachel Vaccaro (unassisted), 18:08 into game; M - Alexa Freguletti (Julie Spracklin), 40:21; 2nd Half - D - Natalie Zelenky (Andi Arnold), 51:38; M - Freguletti (penalty kick), 61:47; D - Emily Market (Arnold), 87:34.

      SUBJECT: Brosler’s First Half Goal Lifts University of Delaware Women’s Soccer to 1-0 Win at St. Francis (Pa.)
       
      DATE:  August 24, 2014
      sws:
       
      LORETTO, Pa.  -- A goal by sophomore Maddie Brosler with 2:23 left in the opening half stood up the rest of the day and propelled the University of Delaware women’s soccer squad to a 1-0 victory over host St. Francis (Pa.) Sunday afternoon at Degol Field. 
       
      Brosler, a forward from St. Millis, Mass. (Millis HS), made her first career goals a game-winner as she took a feed from senior co-captain Andi Arnold (Massapequa/Massapequa, N.Y.) to score the game’s lone goal with time running down in the first half. Brosler’s shot beat Red Flash goalkeeper Romina Kunze to the right side. 
       
      Following up to a season-opening 3-2 win over Monmouth on Friday night, the Blue Hens are now 2-0 for the first time since the 2009 campaign. St. Francis fell to 0-2 on the season after falling to St. John’s 3-0 in its opener Friday. 
       
      “This has been a great weekend to learn about our team and evaluate what we need to accomplish next week,” said veteran Delaware head coach Scott Grzenda, who is leading the Blue Hens during their 25th anniversary season. “The girls worked extremely hard this afternoon. We created a lot of opportunities, we just need to convert them into goals.”
       
      Delaware outshot the Red Flash by a commanding 20-10 margin. Blue Hen goalkeeper Jess Figueroa made three saves in her first start of the season to record her third career shutout. 
       
      Arnold, a senior co-captain who had just two assists in 53 career games entering the season, now has three in two games this year after helping on two goals, including the game-winner, vs. Monmouth Friday night. 
       
      The Hens will return to action this Friday, Aug. 29, when they host St. John’s at 5 p.m. at Stuart & Suzanne Grant Stadium. That game will be the opener to a doubleheader that will include the UD men hosting Sacred Heart at 7 p.m.

      Career Record:         380-167-52

       

      2013 Record:             8-7-1, lost in first round of D2 State Tournament to Mount Pleasant 0-1 on penalty kicks.

       

      Returning All-Conference Players

       

      Matt McCurnin, Junior, 2nd team

      Sean Murray, sophomore, 2nd team

      Mark Dombroski, sophomore, honorable mention

       

      Top Returners

       

      Along with McCurnin, Murray, and Dombroski, the Auks return Pat Fallon (goalkeeper).  Fallon played Academy soccer last year for FC Continental which may him ineligible for high school soccer.  He was a third team All-State selection in 2012.  Colin Freeh (jr.), Joe McAlonan (jr.), and Alex Schultz (jr.), all return with starting experience.

       

      Top Newcomers

       

      Ben Olsen (jr.), Rahul Subbaraya (jr.), John Pileggi (jr.), Sam Wayne (jr.), Reid Niermann (soph.), and Kenan Wursthorn (frosh), should all get opportunities to crack the starting line-up. 

       

      PREVIEW

       

      The Auks graduated thirteen seniors from last year’s squad so the 2014 team will be young and inexperienced.  Pat Fallon’s return should anchor a strong defensive unit along with Mark Dombroski.   Sean Murray and Matt McCurnin will play key midfielder roles on both the attacking and defending sides of the ball.  The Auks are looking for a striker who can threaten the opponents goal and score goals.

      SUBJECT: University of Delaware Men’s Soccer Team Opens 2014 Season Friday With Home Match vs. Sacred Heart

       

      DATE: August 28, 2014

      kmt:

       

      NEWARK, Del. -- The University of Delaware men’s soccer team kicks off its highly anticipated 2014 season on Friday when the Blue Hens host Sacred Heart at 7 p.m. at Stuart & Suzanne Grant Stadium.

       

      The Blue Hens remain home Sunday to face LIU Brooklyn at 1 p.m., before wrapping up their season opening three-match homestand next Thursday vs. Iona at 7 p.m.

       

      Delaware was selected as the preseason favorite in the Colonial Athletic Association Coaches Poll, earned votes in the NSCAA/Continental Tire Preseason Top 25 Poll, and was picked No. 21 in the Top Drawer Soccer Preseason Poll.

       

      The Blue Hens are coming off their terrific 2013 season in which UD finished 14-5-1 overall, advanced to the CAA Tournament Semifinals, and was awarded a home match against St. John’s in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

       

      Delaware recently completed an impressive preseason that saw the Blue Hens shut out Monmouth, 5-0, at home before a tremendous 2-1 victory over second-ranked Maryland last Saturday in College Park.

       

      “Beating Maryland in College Park Saturday night showed the players that they are good enough to compete with the nation’s finest on any given evening,” said UD head coach Ian Hennessy, who is beginning his ninth season in Newark. “We are still a work in progress, but even with the loss of our very talented captain (Roberto Giménez), this team can call upon a collective spirit which has been its strength over recent years. There is a great work ethic within the group and a keen appreciation that without it, we can become very ordinary. In this sense, I must commend a wonderful senior class who have been a positive beacon of governance and influence over the group. Their management of the team on the playing field and in the classroom has been remarkable. If for nothing else, I would love to reward this particular group with its third trip to the NCAA in four years.”

       

      Delaware will be led by sophomore Guillermo Delgado, who is looking to build on a sensational rookie campaign that saw the Tres Cantos, Spain native post 15 goals and five assists to help Delaware rank No. 2 in the nation in scoring offense. Delgado, a first team All-South Atlantic Region, first team All-CAA and CAA Rookie of the Year selection, was ranked as the No. 5 freshman in the nation by Top Drawer Soccer. This preseason Delgado was one of 32 watch list candidates for the Hermann Award, which honors the top collegiate male player in the nation.

       

      Goalkeeper Borja Barbero will once again anchor the UD backline after starting 19 games a year ago, earning first team All-CAA honors after ranking fourth in the league with 1.24 goals allowed. He earned a spot on the All-South Atlantic Region first team, and was a Preseason All-CAA honoree this August.

       

      The Blue Hens, who return eight starters from the 2013 squad, also welcome back CAA All-Rookie midfielder Jaime Martinez and All-South Atlantic Region defender Ignacio Martin. Martinez tied for second on the team with five goals and a team-leading six assists a year ago, while Joe Dipre also returns after tallying five goals and two assists for 12 points.

       

      However Delaware will be without the services of Giménez, a senior captain who will miss the season while recovering from knee surgery. Giménez, a preseason first team All-CAA selection earlier this month, has recorded 17 goals, 16 assists and 50 points during his Blue Hen career. He appeared in 15 contests a year ago, tying Martinez with five goals, six assists and 16 points.

       

      “Rob has been arguably the most influential player and captain that I have had the distinct pleasure of working with in my time at UD,” Hennessy stated. “His recovery from two knee surgeries this year has been an arduous journey and unfortunately it will continue through the fall. The timing couldn’t be worse for him since he has been garnering a lot of attention from MLS clubs. Hopefully we can petition to the NCAA to recover his lost year.”

      SUBJECT:  St. John’s Hands University of Delaware Women’s Soccer First Loss of Season in Overtime

      DATE:  August 29, 2014

      NEWARK, Del. – University of Delaware sophomore Nikki Adams (Pittsgrove, N.J./Arthur P. Schalick) tied things with just over a minute remaining in regulation, but Rachel Daly notched the game-winner for St. John’s as the Blue Hens were downed, 2-1, in overtime Friday evening in collegiate women's soccer action at Grant Stadium.

      With the loss, UD falls to 2-1 on the year while the Red Storm improve to 2-1.

      Daly scored her first goal of the game and her second of the season in the 52nd minute to put St. John’s ahead, 1-0. 

      Things were looking grim for the Blue Hens as time wound down, but Adams rejuvenated the Delaware crowd as she punched in an 18-yard shot from the right side at 88:47 to send the match into overtime.

      Daly put home the winning goal at 93:15 as she took Blue Hens sophomore goalkeeper Kaitlyn Rekos (Groton, Mass./Groton Dunstable Regional) one-on-one and was able to net the ball in the lower right corner for the golden goal victory.

      The loss is the first of the season for Rekos, who also collected two saves on the evening. Diana Poulin earned the win for the Red Storm after allowing just one goal with four saves.

The team played an unbelievable match and Nikki’s goal was like the icing, it gave us the chance to win it in the overtime period.”

      SUBJECT: Delgado Scores Twice as University of Delaware Men’s Soccer Explodes For 6-2 Home Victory Over Iona

       

      DATE: September 4, 2014

      kmt:

       

      NEWARK, Del. -- Blue Hen sophomore Guillermo Delgado scored his first two goals of the season as the University of Delaware men’s soccer team used an offensive explosion to remain unbeaten and defeat Iona, 6-2, Thursday night at Grant Stadium.

       

      Delaware, which has opened the season with three consecutive wins for the second straight year, posted its highest goal total since a 7-1 thrashing of Howard on Oct. 23, 2013.

       

      “I think it was coming,” said Delaware head coach Ian Hennessy. “We won our first two games, but we all felt we weren’t firing on all cylinders. But tonight we were able to score an early goal and that set the tone for the rest of the game. We just had a good game; Iona is a good team and is well-coached, but six goals was the explosion we were looking for and knew was coming.”

       

      Junior Nick DiRienzo opened the scoring just 2:44 into the match when he scored off assists from Jaime Martinez and Ignacio Martin, while Martinez scored off a Joe Dipre assist in the 22nd minute to give the Blue Hens a two-goal advantage.

       

      Delgado, the CAA Preseason Player of the Year and a member of the Hermann Award Watch List, got into the act by scoring off a feed from Martinez at the 33:26 mark, while just over three minutes later Dipre collected a rebound off the crossbar and found the back of the net to make it 4-0.

       

      Iona cracked the scoreboard just 25 seconds later, the first goal UD had allowed on the year, but Ben Sampson scored off a rebound 10 minutes into the second half to increase the margin to 5-1. After Jon-Luke Ferrandino scored for the Gaels, who dropped to 0-2-1 on the year, Delgado scored his second goal off the night in the 65th minute to close the scoring.

       

      Blue Hen junior Paul DeFeo made his first start of the year in the Delaware goal, making three saves to pick up the victory.

       

       

      "We are very pleased for the group tonight who put on a fun performance in front of a young and energetic crowd," said Hennessy. "The players had felt over the weekend that we hadn't played well enough to please two good crowds, despite the wins.  However, the squad talked after the game about how happy they were that tonight's crowd could leave not only with another win, but entertained with six excellent finishes."
       

       

      Match Notes:

      • Delgado posted the fourth two-goal game of his career

      • Martinez handed out a pair of assists for the first time in his career

      • Delaware improved to 2-1-1 against Iona in school history

      • The Blue Hens will look to remain unbeaten on Sunday at St. Bonaventure at 1 p.m.

      SUBJECT: Brown Women’s Soccer Uses Pair of Second Half Goals To Post 2-1 Comeback Win Over University of Delaware

       

      DATE: September 7, 2014

       

      PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The Brown University women’s soccer team used a pair of second half goals to post a 2-1 comeback victory over the University of Delaware in non-conference action Sunday afternoon at Stevenson Field.

       

      The Blue Hens fell to 2-3 on the season, dropping three consecutive matches by identical 2-1 scores.

       

      Delaware struck first 31:59 into the match when sophomore midfielder Nikki Adams took a feed from Elise Krause and found the back of the net to put the Blue Hens in front. Adams’ goal was her team-leading third of the year, while Krause posted her first assist of the campaign.

       

      However the Bears, who improved to 2-0 on the year, knotted the contest at the 54:04 mark when Chloe Cross converted a penalty kick. The teams remained tied until 17:06 remained, when Carly Gould headed home a cross from the left side to put the Bears in front.

       

      Mallory Yant needed to make just one save in the Brown net, while Blue Hen goalkeeper Kailyn Rekos stopped two shots for Delaware.

       

      “We had some calls go against us, but in the end, we need to take care of the match ourselves,” Blue Hen head coach Scott Grzenda said. "We worked hard but give credit to Brown, they finished their chances. Nikki (Adams) has been awesome these past three games. It’s great to see her find her groove in the attack.”

       

      The Blue Hens will look to get back on track on Friday when they take on Ball State at 4 p.m. in Annapolis, Md. on the first day of the Navy Invitational.

       

      Match Notes:

      • Adams scored for the second straight game and became the first UD player to score in consecutive games since Emily Market scored in three straight late last season

      • Adams has scored three of the Blue Hens’ seven goals this season

      • Krause’s assist was the second of her career

      • The Blue Hens have outshot their opponents 90-38 this season

      • The match was the first ever meeting between Delaware and Brown

      OLEAN, N.Y. -- Blue Hen sophomore All-American Guillermo Delgado recorded his second consecutive two-goal game as the University of Delaware men’s soccer team remained unbeaten with a 3-0 shutout at St. Bonaventure Sunday afternoon at McGraw-Jennings Field.
       
      The Blue Hens, who improved to 4-0 on the year with three clean sheets, have won their opening four matches for the first time since the 1972 season. St. Bonaventure was playing its season opener and fell to 0-1 on the campaign.
       
      Delgado, the CAA Preseason Player of the Year who was selected to the Hermann Award Watch List, followed up his two-goal performance during Thursday’s win over Iona by putting two more in the back of the net Sunday. He opened the scoring just 8:21 into the contest, knocking home a shot from the right side just outside the box.
       
      The Blue Hens maintained their one-goal advantage until seven minutes into the second half, when Joe Dipre scored off a feed from Kyle Bruno. Delgado then capped the scoring with just 35 seconds to play with a goal off a pass from Ignacio Martin.
       
      Meanwhile UD goalkeeper Borja Barbero made three saves to record his third shutout of the season, as the senior has yet to allow a goal in 270 minutes of action this year.
       
      Delaware, ranked No. 20 in this week’s Top Drawer Soccer Poll and receiving votes in the NSCAA/Continental Tire Top 25 Poll, returns home on Wednesday to host Seton Hall at 7 p.m. at Grant Stadium.
       
      “I’m very pleased for the lads to keep another clean sheet today,” said Blue Hen head coach Ian Hennessy. “We had terrific leadership today from our senior players in managing a game in what was a difficult environment on the road. They are eager to get back to try and stretch our unbeaten run to five against Big East foe Seton Hall Wednesday.”
       
      Match Notes:
      • Joe Dipre’s goal was his second of the season and the 10th of his career
      • Guillermo Delgado posted the fifth two-goal game of his career and notched two for the second straight year vs. St. Bonaventure
      • Kyle Bruno and Ignacio Martin each posted their second assists of the year
      • UD is 4-0 for just the fourth time in school history, along with the 1968, 1970 and 1972 seasons

      DATE: September 7, 2014
       
      OLEAN, N.Y. -- Blue Hen sophomore All-American Guillermo Delgado recorded his second consecutive two-goal game as the University of Delaware men’s soccer team remained unbeaten with a 3-0 shutout at St. Bonaventure Sunday afternoon at McGraw-Jennings Field.
       
      The Blue Hens, who improved to 4-0 on the year with three clean sheets, have won their opening four matches for the first time since the 1972 season. St. Bonaventure was playing its season opener and fell to 0-1 on the campaign.
       
      Delgado, the CAA Preseason Player of the Year who was selected to the Hermann Award Watch List, followed up his two-goal performance during Thursday’s win over Iona by putting two more in the back of the net Sunday. He opened the scoring just 8:21 into the contest, knocking home a shot from the right side just outside the box.
       
      The Blue Hens maintained their one-goal advantage until seven minutes into the second half, when Joe Dipre scored off a feed from Kyle Bruno. Delgado then capped the scoring with just 35 seconds to play with a goal off a pass from Ignacio Martin.
       
      Meanwhile UD goalkeeper Borja Barbero made three saves to record his third shutout of the season, as the senior has yet to allow a goal in 270 minutes of action this year.
       
      Delaware, ranked No. 20 in this week’s Top Drawer Soccer Poll and receiving votes in the NSCAA/Continental Tire Top 25 Poll, returns home on Wednesday to host Seton Hall at 7 p.m. at Grant Stadium.
       
      “I’m very pleased for the lads to keep another clean sheet today,” said Blue Hen head coach Ian Hennessy. “We had terrific leadership today from our senior players in managing a game in what was a difficult environment on the road. They are eager to get back to try and stretch our unbeaten run to five against Big East foe Seton Hall Wednesday.”
       
      Match Notes:
      • Joe Dipre’s goal was his second of the season and the 10th of his career
      • Guillermo Delgado posted the fifth two-goal game of his career and notched two for the second straight year vs. St. Bonaventure
      • Kyle Bruno and Ignacio Martin each posted their second assists of the year
      • UD is 4-0 for just the fourth time in school history, along with the 1968, 1970 and 1972 seasons

      RIDER SCOOTS BY HARD-FIGHTING HORNETS 2-1 WITH A LATE SECOND HALF SCORE

      Courtesy DSU Athletic Media Relations
      Wed, September 10, 2014

      (Dover, Del.) – Looking for its second consecutive victory for the first time since 2008, the Delaware State women’s soccer team (1-6) put forth a valiant effort against the visiting Rider Broncs (4-2), but a Hollie Keish (1) score with less than 10 minutes to play was enough to sneak past the Hornets, 2-1.

      In the first half, after receiving a pass from forward Michelle Iacono, defender/midfielder Tara Ballay (5) put a shot past DSU’s Katelyn Koslosky for the first goal of the night.  Coming into tonight’s contest, Ballay was Rider’s top scorer with four goals and two assists for 10 points.

      At the break, the Broncs remained on top by one, in addition to outshooting the Hornets, 16-7.  Koslosky, meanwhile, collected six saves to keep Delaware State within striking distance.

      After intermission, RU continued its strong offensive prowess, attempting multiple shots in DSU territory.  Nevertheless, Koslosky and the rest of the Hornets kept the Broncs at bay to stay within striking distance. 

      As the period progressed, DSU was awarded a corner kick during the 74th minute, resulting defender Taylor Pratcher placing the ball in RU’s goalie box.  Thankfully, forward Chelsea Boursiquot (2) capitalized with a beautiful header shot to tie the game.

      Rider, on the other hand, regained the lead about eight minutes later, when Iacono tallied her second assist of the night by finding Hollie about 20 yards in front of DSU’s net for the goal.  

      Despite being down, the Hornets kept fighting to the final minute, as Boursiquot had a great chance to send the match into overtime with about 30 seconds to play.  Unfortunately, after controlling the ball on the left wing in RU territory, her shot resulted in Bethany-May Howard’s seventh save of the night.

      At game’s end, the Broncs tallied 27 shots, including 14 placed on-goal.  Offensively for the Hornets, they managed 13 attempts, along with a season-high eight shots place on-frame. 

      Koslosky, meanwhile, collected a season-high 12 saves, including several stops in the second period to keep the Hornets in the game.

      Coming up, Delaware State will look to avenge a 2-0 loss last season to Wagner this Sunday on the road at 1 p.m.

      SUBJECT: No. 21 University of Delaware Men’s Soccer Remains Undefeated With Thrilling 3-2 Comeback Win Over Seton Hall

       

      DATE: September 10, 2014

      kmt:

       

      NEWARK, Del. -- Blue Hen freshman Thibault Philippe and junior Joe Dipre scores 37 seconds apart midway through the second half as the No. 21 University of Delaware men’s soccer team remained undefeated with a thrilling 3-2 comeback win over Seton Hall Wednesday night at Stuart & Suzanne Grant Stadium.

       

      Delaware improved to 5-0 on the season, and has opened the year with five consecutive wins for just the third time in school history and the first since 1970. Seton Hall, which had posted one-goal victories over the Blue Hens in each of the past two seasons, dropped to 1-1-1 on the campaign.

       

      After the teams were knotted 1-1 at the half, the Blue Hens found themselves trailing for the first time this season after the Pirates’ Kai Greene headed home a beautiful 40-yard cross from Samuel Geiler at the 61:18 mark.

       

      However Delaware pulled even just over 10 minutes later when Philippe’s 25-yard free kick deflected off the Seton Hall wall and sneaked into the left corner of the goal. Just 37 seconds later Dipre unleashed a tremendous strike from 30 yards out that dropped just under the crossbar to put the Blue Hens in front for good.

       

      “I think tonight was the best free college entertainment you will find within 100 miles,” said UD head coach Ian Hennessy, a 1990 graduate of Seton Hall. “It was a passionate contest, the goals were fantastic, and the storylines were tremendous. I’m thrilled that we were able to stay undefeated and remain in the national rankings, which is where I feel this group belongs.”

       

      Delaware opened the scoring 17:14 into the match when sophomore All-American Guillermo Delgado collected a rebound off a block and blasted a shot into the bottom right corner of the net to put the Blue Hens in front. However Seton Hall answered in the 34th minute as Victor Manosalvas headed home a cross from Mateusz Brela.

       

      Delaware is back home on Sunday to host Saint Peter’s at 1 p.m. at Grant Stadium. A victory would tie the Blue Hens for the best start in school history, matching the 1970 squad.

       

      Match Notes:

      • Delgado now leads the CAA with five goals this season

      • Delgado has scored in three consecutive matches

      • Goalkeeper Borja Barbero had his consecutive scoreless streak stopped at 303:02, and allowed his first two goals of the year

      • Dipre scored his third goal of the year, tied for second on the team

      • Philippe’s goal was the first of his career

      • Delaware has outscored its opponents 16-4 on the campaign

      SUBJECT: Reserves Lead Wilmington Men’s Soccer Past West Chester, 2-1
      DATE: September 12, 2014

      WEST CHESTER, Pa. - - A pair of reserves scored their first career goal to help lead Wilmington University men’s soccer in a nonconference victory, 2-1, over West Chester on the road on Friday afternoon.
      Sophomores Juan Bernal and Steve O’Connor scored first half goals, the game-winner coming just 22 seconds after West Chester (1-2) tied the match and 40 seconds prior to halftime to give the Wildcats (2-1) the momentum into the break.
      Bernal (Mississauga, Ontario/Iona Catholic) gave the Wildcats an early lead with his first career goal in a Wilmington uniform in the 16th minute. Classmate Bruno Montini assisted on the goal to put the Wildcats in front 15:43 into the match.
      West Chester’s Nicholas Tucci tied the match with his first goal of the season in the 44th minute, putting the home team on the scoreboard 43:58 into the match.
      Just over 20 seconds later, O’Connor received a long ball from Adrian Tash in the penalty box and O’Connor stuffed it home to give the Wildcats a 2-1 lead and swing the momentum back in favor of the visitors.
      “It was a really good comeback at the end of the first half to steal back the momentum,” head coach Nick Papanicolas said. “It was also good to see Steven make his own comeback after hitting the post on a solid strike a minute prior to his goal. He was able to stick with it to score his first goal. All in all it was a good game. The second half was only good, not great, so we still have a lot to work on.”
      Zach Lee replaced starter Frank Hall in goal to start the second half for the Wildcats, and although he faced eight shots, the sophomore didn’t need to make a save to secure the victory for the team. Hall made one first half save to earn the win in goal.
      The Golden Rams outshot the Wildcats, 13-12, using an advantage of 8-3 in the second half to take over the stat sheet. Wilmington kicked more corners, 6-5, and put six shots on goal.
      The Wildcats continue their stretch of six games in 10 days on Sunday as they travel to Dowling for another nonconference match. The opening kick is slated for 1:00 p.m.
