This weekend, Delaware’s D1 Men will be heading north to face Syracuse University. The Blue Hens will face the Syracuse Orange on Friday at 6:30 PM and Saturday at 2 PM, both at the Tennity Ice Pavilion on the Syracuse campus.
Last weekend, Syracuse beat Niagara University 6-4. Coming off of such a high scoring game, Syracuse will definitely put up a fight this weekend. However, the Blue Hens are coming off a win as well, after beating West Chester University last weekend 2-1. When the Blue Hens played Syracuse last year, it was a split series with the Syracuse Orange winning the first game 5-1, but the Hens winning the second, 4-2.
This week’s player to watch is #12 Colin Emerich! Colin had an incredible weekend against West Chester, the most recent game, scoring the first goal of the night. Colin has a talent of creating scoring opportunities for his teammates, and has used his skill to contribute to the Blue Hens’ season as a whole, with a total of 2 goals and 6 assists. As Colin becomes more confident in his abilities, his teammates are expecting him to continue improving his game. We can’t wait to see what Colin continues to accomplish!
