The Friday, the Blue Hens will be traveling to Annapolis, Maryland to play Navy at the McMullen Arena before they head back to Newark for Saturday’s game at the Fred Rust Arena in Newark. Coming off of two losses to Liberty University, Delaware will need to regroup in order to win this weekend.
Saturday’s game will be supporting the Open Net Foundation for Teen Mental Health. Special events for the night will include a VIP Lounge, multiple shootouts, t-shirt sales, and an award ceremony! Be sure to stop by and support the Hens and the cause, with special events beginning at 4 pm. Additional information about the game’s special activities can be found here: https://www.opennetfoundation.org/agenda/.
The United States Naval Academy won their game this past weekend, beating The College of New Jersey 5-0. Last year, Delaware swept the US Naval Academy in their two-game weekend, and are hoping to recreate that successful sequence.
The player to watch this week is #39 Pierce Lamberton! This senior forward has been with the Hens since his freshman year, and has made major contributions to the team since the very beginning. Pierce’s teammates have recognized his awesome start to the season, and know he has potential for a victorious weekend.
