Keane, a psychology major from Elora, Ontario, scored two goals as the No. 17 Blue Hens improved to 2-0 for the sixth time in the last seven seasons with the dominating victory over Presbyterian at Delaware Stadium.
Delaware will continue action this Saturday as the Blue Hens host Marist at 1 p.m. at Delaware Stadium.

Gameday tickets are available at the gate the day of the game and are $5 for adults, $3 for youth 17 and under and for seniors 60 and over, and free for UD students with valid identification.
Keane scored on his only two shots during the game, delivering his first career goal off a feed from Carter Bloor with 38 seconds remaining in the first half and adding his second score off a feed from Jackson Keeler with 4:46 remaining in the game. He also scooped up two groundballs and caused one turnover.
