The Dukes are led by Sam King and Delaney Rodriguez-Shaw, who each have 22 goals apiece, and combine for 11 assists. The Bonnies will head south on Sunday, after meeting La Salle on Friday afternoon. St. Bonaventure is 1-9 overall, 0-4 in league play and is led by Abby Hiltz who has 11 goals and 11 assists on the year.
DEPTH ON DEPTH ON DEPTH… Davidson has relied on its depth this season, with 16 Wildcats scoring at least one goal this year and six ‘Cats grabbing 10+ draw controls. Three Wildcats have 30 points or more, with Erin Cooke leading the way with 48 points, off 22 goals and 26 assists while Grace Fahey and Gianna New have 36 and 35 points, respectively.
WAYNE’S WORLD… “We’ve had a great start in the A-10, despite our one loss to Saint Joe’s,” said Head Coach Kim Wayne. “But, we learned so much from the first and second half of that game, that I know we are a better team for it. We also have so many talented players who are ready to step up. Noelle Cegielski and Hayden Callahan are truly amazing one-on-one defenders, but we have added other players to our defensive mix who have improved tremendously throughout the year. Morgan O’Brien, Margaret Anne Warner and Brynn Jones come to mind. Depth is the piece I am the most proud of with this group.”
