HEN SCRATCHINGS:

 

• UNBEATEN OVER THREE: Delaware is unbeaten in its last three 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.

 

• CAA BREATHER: Delaware will face a non-CAA opponent for the first time since September 13, when the Hens faced Seton Hall. Delaware is 3-1-1 this season against non-conference opponents with the lone defeat coming at Villanova in double overtime. The Hens are 1-0-1 this season in home non-conference matchups.
