NEWARK, Del. – The University of Delaware men’s soccer team will complete its 2012 season by hosting the UNCW Seahawks in a Colonial Athletic Association match Friday, November 2 at 7 p.m. at Delaware Mini Stadium.
Delaware (3-11-4, 1-5-3 CAA) is 10th in the CAA while UNCW ranks seventh in the conference, only one point out of the final spot in the CAA Men’s Soccer Championships, with a 4-5 record and 7-9-1 overall mark. The Blue Hens are winless at Delaware Mini Stadium with a 0-4-2 record while the Seahawks own a 2-5 road record.
The Blue Hens look to return to the win column after a 3-2 loss at William & Mary on October 27, in their final CAA road match of the season.
With the final home match of the season, three Delaware men’s soccer seniors; Eyal Gruber, Brandon Paul and Ben Raymond play their final match with the Blue Hens.

Junior Mark Garrity is tied with Dipre with a team-leading three goals apiece. Junior Kyle Nuel and Gimenez pace the Blue Hens with three assists while Gimenez is the only player with multiple goals and assists.
The Seahawks are coming off a 1-0 home victory over Towson on Sunday and are led by 12th--year head coach Aiden Heaney, the three-time CAA Coach of the Year, who has improved a club that went 4-12-2 overall and 2-8-1 in the CAA last year.
Collin Bonner leads the Seahawks with five goals on the season and is tied with Jamie Dell, who has 11 points behind four goals and three assists. Etienne Bowlanger sits atop the Seahawk leader board with four assists. The goalkeeping trio of Sam Williams, Brandon Rolen and Brad Newman have combined for four shutouts and a 1.55 GAA with a .645 save percentage.
The match was originally scheduled for Tuesday, October 30, but was changed due to the weather concerns from Hurricane Sandy.Back To Men's Soccer Home Men's Soccer Story Archive
