Junior goalkeeper Sarah Scher has started all but one game in the Blue Hen cage, recording 43 saves and posting a 3.41 goals against average.
Appalachian State enters Saturday’s contest with a 2-5 record and the Mountaineers feature six multiple goal scorers, including a team-best three by Jordyn Warren.
On Sunday the Blue Hens will face a Wake Forest squad that has faced six ranked opponents this year and will play another by competing against fourth-ranked Maryland on Saturday.
The Demon Deacons (3-4) have seven multiple goal scorers on their roster, with Krysta Wangerin leading the team with three. She also has posted a team-high nine points, along with teammate Anna Kozniuk.
