HEN SCRATCHINGS:

• UNBEATEN OVER THREE CAA MATCHES: Delaware is unbeaten in its last three CAA matches, having compiled a pair of CAA victories and a conference tie. On September 23, Delaware defeated Northeastern 1-0 on a late second-half goal by Halvard Ramstad. Last Wednesday Ramstad again scored the game-winner giving the Blue Hens a 3-2 win over Drexel. In that game sophomores, Chad Poarch and Fede Prieto also found the back of the net. Sunday Delaware picked up a crucial road point at William & Mary. Junior John Schroeder gave the Hens a 1-0 lead deep into the second half, but the Hens allowed the equalizer in the 83rd minute.

TWO AWAY FROM HISTORY: Blue Hens goalkeeper Todd Morton is just two victories away from breaking the all-time program mark for career victories. Morton’s next victory will tie him atop the list with former hen Borja Barbero.

•NEED TO BOUNCE BACK: Delaware is coming off a 3-1 loss to Penn Wednesday night. In the loss, Delaware freshman Mark Battle scored his first career goal. The Hens are 2-0 this season following a loss.
