CAA honors Delaware’s Dickson, Drexel’s Church
The Colonial Athletic Association named Delaware’s Curtis Dickson as Player of the Week and Drexel’s Robert Church as Rookie of the Week.
Dickson, a senior attackman from Coquitlam, British Columbia, earned his second Player of the Week honor this season after scoring a career-high eight goals and a career-best 10 points in the Blue Hens’ win over Albany. The senior scored back-to-back goals twice against the Great Danes, including one combination in a span of just eight seconds.
Church, also of Coquitlam, British Columbia, becomes the second-straight Dragon to pick up Rookie of the Week honors, following a five-goal performance in Drexel’s win over St. Joseph’s. The rookie, who scored all five of his goals in the first half against the Hawks, notched three-straight goals in a span of five minutes midway through the game’s first half. On the week Church registered six goals and one assist.
Last week’s winner was Drexel freshman attackman Nick Trizano.
