MEN, Delaware 18, Mount St. Mary’s 5: Trupert Ortlieb and his teammates enjoyed a scoring explosion Saturday afternoon as he notched a career-high six goals on the way to the Blue Hens’ victory over Mt. St. Mary’s.

Delaware (1-1) led 6-3 at halftime but hit the back of the net an incredible nine times on just 15 shots in the third period to take control and cruise along to their most one-sided victory in five years.

Ortlieb a third-year transfer from Providence, had scored just five times in 14 career games entering the contest but led the UD onslaught by scoring six goals on just seven shots to lead the scoring explosion. He scored three goals in each half and got the second half momentum swing underway by scoring twice in the first 2:18 of the second half to get things moving.

WOMEN, Delaware 10, Georgetown 9: Junior midfielder Becky Gohsler exploded for a career-high six goals for Delaware.

Gohsler, who previously never tallied more than three goals in a game, added three ground balls, two draw controls and one caused turnover in the win.

Senior midfielder Kirsten Hale registered her third career hat trick while classmate Jamie Schwartz posted UD’s other goal on the afternoon.

College softball

St. John’s 8, Delaware 2: The Blue Hens opened the scoring during the bottom of the second inning when Devon Steiner led off with a single to left and eventually scored on a two-out infield single by Miranda O’Donald. Alyshia Dellatore then led off the bottom of the third by drilling a home run to centerfield, her second career homer.

But Delaware was shut out the rest of the way and fell to 0-3 on the season.

Dellatore and Steiner each finished with two hits for Delaware while Mariah Kondravy, Anna Steinmetz, Emily Neal and O’Donald added one apiece.
