Dez Decker and Grant Ferguson celebrate a goal.

DeSales will host the Eagles on Saturday, April 18. The Bulldogs are currently on a two-game losing streak with a record of 3-6. They have struggled with shooting this season, as their number one shooter is shooting 50% on 28 shots attempted. Meanwhile, other players have attempted 40 plus shots and only have ten goals to show for it. The Bulldogs will have to focus on getting the ball to their highest percentage scorer, or the Eagles’ will have an easy time shutting down their offense. The Eagles’ have the upper hand coming into this game, as they have been playing excellent defense this season.

The Eagles will then head to Robert T. Field to take on FDU Devils April 21st. The Devils are 6-4 this season with a record of 2-0 in conference play. The Eagles’ defense will be faced with the challenge of defending Devils’ leading scorer Daniel Minnich. The six-foot junior is not only a streaky shooter, but also helps provide helps as a distributor and has a large number of assists to show for it. The Eagles’ offense will be facing a strong Devil’s defense. The Eagles will certainly put the Devils’ defense to work, as they have to slow down hot Eagle shooters Grant Ferguson and Dave Darling.

The Eagles will look to keep dominating their conference oppenents all the way to the conference championships. After conference play, look for the Eagles to make a run during the NCAA tournament. So far this season looks like another successful one for the Eagles.
