Delaware’s Dickson is CAA Player of the Week
For the third time this season and for the ninth time in his career, University of Delaware standout attackman Curtis Dickson has been selected as the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Week.
Dickson, a senior attackman and criminal justice major from Port Coquitlam, British Columbia (Riverside High School), was honored as the Player of the Week for April 18 after leading the Blue Hens to a 9-6 upset victory over No. 12 Massachusetts Saturday at Delaware Stadium. Penn State freshman attackman Nick Dolik was named CAA Rookie of the Week.
Dickson, who was also honored by the CAA back on Feb. 22 and March 8 as well as once in 2009, three times in 2008, and once in 2007, scored three goals against the Minutemen as the Blue Hens (6-6, 1-2 CAA) snapped a two-game losing streak and moved back into the CAA?playoff picture.
He scored his first goal in the opening stanza to help the Blue Hens jump out to a 3-1 lead and saved his best for the late-going. His man-up goal with 10:10 left to play broke a 6-6 tie to put the Hens up for good and his goal at the 7:42 mark gave Delaware some insurance.
DeSales’ Walker (Salesianum School), Campanelli (Neshaminy) honored
Senior Kevin Walker (Wilmington, DE/Salesianum) and junior Justin Campanelli (Neshaminy) of DeSales were recently named the MAC Player and GK/D of the Week.
Walker was dominating in the Bulldogs’ recent 9-7 triumph over Manhattanville College. He collected two goals and one assist including the game-winner, picked up 15 ground balls, and won 14-of-17 face-offs. The win moves DSU into a tie for second place in the MAC standings.
Campanelli was outstanding in goal, making five saves, including three during the fourth period when the Valiants were rallying to get back in the game. He also added one assist on the offensive end as he wins his first game of the season in between the pipes.
