Hens stay unbeaten: For the first time since the 2007 season and just the third time overall, the University of Delaware field hockey squad has started the year with a 7-0 record after posting a 5-3 win against Bucknell Friday evening at Fred P. Rullo Stadium.

The No. 14 Blue Hens now have the opportunity to set a new school record this Sunday should UD defeat Pacific and open 2015 with eight straight victories.

As has been the case most of the season, senior Michaela Patzner and freshman Lisa Giezeman led Delaware with two goals apiece.

Freshman Sabrina Rhodes added her first-career goal while four Hens dished out assists on the night.

Delaware held a 4-1 lead at the halftime break and went up by as much as 5-1 with just under nine minutes remaining in the game before Bucknell (1-4) capitalized on communication errors from the Blue Hens. The Bison were able to come within two, but UD was able to seal the victory as time expired.

Eight Wolverines earned points, with Janiah Moore and Megan DeFalco leading the way. Moore finished with a goal and an assist while DeFalco added a pair of helpers and was the last Wolverine to touch the ball on a CSE own goal.

Wesley got on the board in the ninth minute when Summer Stone found Ennis for a goal. The Wolverines followed with another score in the 21st. Samantha Netterman found Janiah Moore to put the Navy and White ahead 2-0. A St. Elizabeth own goal made it 3-0 in the 34th minute, and Ryan netted her two goals in the final five minutes before the halftime whistle. Wesley entered the halftime break with a comfortable 5-0 lead.

Wesley added to the lead in the second half with goals from Lauren Price and Devan Ross. The two tallies made it 7-0 for the Wolverines with just over 23 minutes to play. In the final 10 minutes, CSE scored their only goal of the match. Starting goalkeeper Grace Bailey was sent in as a field player and netted her first goal of the season, the second of her career.
