UDFH plays #3 (coaches)/#4 (RPI) UConn this coming Sunday in Storrs. UD is #8 in the RPI- a win there would be huge. After this it's 6 straight games against teams outside of the top 20, so the Hens' RPI will start falling after the tough OOC schedule.

The CAA is not having the greatest year, so any in-conference losses the rest of the way would not be great.

UD loses 3-0 to UConn. Shots were 11-8 but apparently UConn was just next level on execution.

UD was outshot 8-3 after 1st period. UD had 4 of 8 shots on goal. UConn had 8 of 11 shots on goal. UConn scored on both of its penalty corners. UD didn't score on its single penalty corner.

Nice win and the game was on TV.

Can't say it was exciting to watch on TV.

UD is #9 in the RPI and #11 in the coach's poll. Next four games are all pretty much must-wins to have a good shot at an at-large, as JMU (#23 RPI) and William and Mary (#27) are the only two reasonably-ranked opponents left.

UD beats Hofstra 8-4. You want a non-boring game, this was it! UD went up 6-1 but the game was so wide open that the defense just seemed to not be there late in the game for either side.

Dominant win by the Hens over Drexel (7-0). They’ve been a strong defensive team but now are finding their offense having scored 8 and 7 goals over the last two games. They are now 12-3 overall and 4-0 in the CAA.

William and Mary beat #5 Louisville 2-1 last week and has won 8 in a row... they're up next. The Tribe is 4-0 in conference so this game (in Newark) is likely for the #1 seed in the CAA.

The Hens finish up with JMU (7-9) who have played 5 top-20 teams and lost by a combined score of 20-0 (although 2 of the losses against top-5 teams were only 2-0)....

This team has the look of one that is capable of a deep post season run.

Take notice of those that post after a loss say nothing after a win.

We are very fortunate to have Rolf.
