LIGHTING UP THE SCOREBOARD: The Blue Hens tallied 16 goals in their home-opener against Mt. Saint Mary’s, which was their first time netting more than 15 goals in one game in a full calendar year. The last time that happened was in an 18-5 win over Mt. Saint Mary’s in 2017. The 16 goals is the most in a season opener for Delaware since the 2012 season when the Blue Hens defeated Detroit Mercy, 19-6.

BLUE HEN SWEEP: For just the second time in the past three years, the Blue Hens took home both CAA weekly honors this past week with senior Will Hirschmann and freshman Peter St. Geme being named the Player and Rookie of the Week, respectively. Hirschmann’s four goals and three assists was a career best performance, while St. Geme was the second straight freshman to start their Blue Hen career with a hat trick (Charlie Kitchen in 2017).

STANDOUT SENIORS: Each year, the seniors are the core of most collegiate teams. That was evident in the Blue Hens’ opener against Mount St. Mary’s when seniors Andrew Romagnoli, Dean DiSimone and Will Hirschmann combined to have a hand in 12 of Delaware’s 18 goals.

ROMO ON A ROLL: Romagnoli’s two-goal, one assist performance extended his point scoring streak to 20 games dating back to the 2016 season. His streak now ranks as the 15th-longest active streak in the country.

NEVER SAY DIE: Last Saturday’s win over The Mount marked just second time in the past six years that the Blue Hens had come back from a four-goal deficit for a victory (down 7-3 in the second quarter).  

A BLUE HEN WIN TODAY…: A win today by Delaware would be the first 2-0 start for the program since the 2012 season. 

SCOUTING THE HIGHLANDERS: NJIT comes to Delaware for the first-ever meeting between the two programs. The Highlanders are in their fourth season at the Division I level. Junior Aaron Forster is the catalyst, posting 34 goals and nine assists last season.   

SERIES INFORMATION: This will be the first meeting between Delaware and New Jersey Institute of Technology.
