FIELD HOCKEY: Blue Hens Top 15th-Ranked West Chester

September 25, 1982

WEST CHESTER, Pa.  -- The 10th ranked University of Delaware field hockey team defeated No. 15 ranked West Chester 3-1 in a battle of national powers.

The Blue Hens were lead by Lisa Blanc who scored her first two goals of the season and gave the team a 2-0 lead, which the Hens never lost. Kathy Hudson added another goal midway through the second half for the final Delaware score as the Hens furthered their record to 4-2 on the season. 

The victory marked Delaware’s head coach Mary Ann Campbell’s 100th career coaching victory, but she was quick to credit her players for the accomplishment.

“It was a super team effort,” said Campbell. “We had great defensive play, we capitalized on our scoring opportunities, and everyone gave a 100 percent effort.”

Delaware outshot West Chester, 10-4, with Hen goalkeeper Stacie Indelicarto being credited with two saves.
