Delaware’s ice hockey Club returned home from its weekend in Connecticut, satisfied with a win and a tie. On Saturday the Hens skated back from a two goal deficit on two third period power play goals by Bob Beck to notch a 4-4 tie against the Milford Junior Blues. Delaware’s other goals were scored by Dave Conklin, his 20th and Ken Sliney.
Delaware had an easier time Sunday, icing a 7-5 win over South Connecticut St. Beck and Dave Bart each scored two goals as the Hens jumped out to a 7-2 lead after two periods, and coasted home from there. “We really could have beaten them a lot worse,”said coach Rick Roux. “I put my third goalie in (in the third period) and had my fourth line out there.” The Hens travel to Penn State for. a tournament this weekend and Roux likes his team’s chances. “We’re ready for them, we’ve got a much stronger team then in the past,” he said. “It’s going to be a tough weekend but I’m looking forward to it.”
