West Chester Weekend Preview

This weekend is Homecoming for the Blue Hens!we are excited to see some of the Alumni come back to cheer on the team at the Fred Rust Arena Friday at 6:00pm against West Chester University.

The Hens played against the University of Rhode Island Rams this past weekend, and came out with a sweep! Friday’s game the team won, 6-3. We saw goals from Dustin Rabinowitz, Cole Zucker, Michael Nisky, Vinny Zingarelli, and Shane Mullin. On Saturday, the Blue Hens took the win with a final score of 5-4 in overtime with the game winning goal coming from one of our starting defensive men #5 Justin Hoch. We also saw goals Saturday by John Redgate, Max Freeman, Jakob DeFares, Pierce Lamberton, and Justin Hoch.


The top scoring players to look out for from the West Chester Golden Rams are Jake Horacek (22), Manny Billones (13), and Joseph Opdenaker (10). The top scoring players from the Blue Hens are Cole Zucker with 21 points, John Redgate with 20 points, and Vincent Zingarelli with 15 points.


The player to watch this weekend from the Blue Hens is Justin Hoch. Justin is a sophomore starting defenseman. He is a key player on the ice for Delaware. He has been on top of his game this season making countless smart plays to secure the Blue Hens with a successful win. This past weekend not only did Justin succeed on the defensive side, but pulled out a win for Delaware Saturday night scoring the over time game winning goal. We hope to see a lot more of Justin as the season continues.
