Forward Guillermo Delgado Garners Second CAA Rookie of the Week Honor
RICHMOND, Va. -- For the second time in three weeks, the University of Delaware men's soccer team forward Guillermo Delgado earned Colonial
Athletic Association (CAA) Rookie of the Week accolades. This week he shares the title with Ignacio Gorrono from Hofstra.
A native of Tres Cantos, Spain, Delgado scored two goals in each of the Blue Hens two games last week when the squad went 1-1 dropping a
heartbreaking double overtime match at Seton Hall before handing St. Bonaventure its first loss of the season. Friday evening, Delgado
tallied the game-winner against the Bonnies.
Delgado currently leads the CAA in goals (8) and points (16). On the national scene, the freshman ranks first in goals and second in points. He is the only freshman who ranks in the national top 35 in goals. As a unit, Delaware currently ranks second the in the nation in points per game (9.80), scoring offense (3.20 goals per game) and goals (16).
"I am thrilled for Guillermo," said Delaware head coach Ian Hennessy. "His success reminds me so much of the path Roberto Giménez took his freshman year when he was named the CAA Rookie of the Year in 2011. Guillermo is a terrific person and I am very happy for him and for the squad."
In its five games this season, Delaware has scored at least three goals in each match. The last time the Blue Hens scored three or more goals in five straight games was 1971. This feat has only been achieved twice in Blue Hen program history.
The Blue Hens own a perfect 4-0 record at home and own a 4-1-0 overall record heading into their next outing tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 17, at home vs. Temple at 7 p.m.
