Guillermo Delgado breaks Delaware scoring record in loss to Maryland

Senior forward Guillermo Delgado made history in College Park, Maryland on Tuesday, recording a brace to set a new career goal-scoring mark for the Blue Hens.

Delgado tied Mike Biggs’ mark of 47 career goals set in 1968-70 with a goal in the 23rd minute that canceled out Gordon Wild’s fourth minute strike for the Terps and then added No. 48 in the 73rd minute.

His second goal momentarily put the Blue Hens in front, but it was Wild again three minutes later with the equalizer and once more for the hat trick in overtime that spoiled Delgado’s record-setting evening.

“He is the highest active scorer in all of NCAA Division I soccer and now steps up as the top goal scorer, points scorer and assists holder in the 90-plus-year history of Delaware men’s soccer,” head coach Ian Hennessy said after the game. “He picked a fitting venue and occasion tonight against the nation’s No. 1 team.”

Delgado now has 11 goals on the season to go with eight assists. He has 19 career assists and 115 points.

Drexel score but edged on late goal; Penn frustrated in non-conference loss

Goals have been hard to come by this season for Drexel, wins even harder.

Xavier Hernandez found an equalizer for the Dragons in the 32nd minute and goalkeeper Tyler Afflerbach (Harleysville, Pa.) kept them in it with a season-high eight saves, but an 85th minute goal by Jordan Dove gave UMBC to the 2-1 win on Senior Night.

With the loss, the Dragons fall to 1-12-2 on the year.

A Felix Angerer goal in the 52nd minute gave visiting West Virginia the win in Penn’s final non-conference battle of the season.

The Quakers (4-5-5) outshot the Mountaineers 10-4 but goalkeeper Jose Santos stopped on three shots on target to record the clean sheet for the visitors.
