Know Your Enemy - Robert Morris

Know Your Enemy - Robert Morris

After another tough one goal loss for the Dragons (1-2), they look to bounce back tomorrow against a tough opponent in unranked Robert Morris (1-1). Drexel fell Tuesday night out on the mainline against a talented Villanova squad in OT while Bobby Mo has lost to Bellarmine and beaten Detroit thus far. Drexel will face RMU at Vidas Field this weekend and try to get themselves back on track as well as back to .500.

The colonials are just barely outscoring their opponents so far this year, averaging 9gpg. The offensive thus far has been led by Freshman Canuck A/M JonPatrik Kealey (5g, 1a) and Sophomore M James Rahe (4g, 2a). The offense has a pair of 5 point getters thus far with 2g and 3a coming from both So. attackman Luke Laskiewicz and Jr. attackman Jacob Ruest. The offense has 39 turnovers so far in 2 games against subpar defensive units, so expect the Dragon D to take advantage of sloppy play. They are also a woeful 1-7 on man-up so far this year.

The Colonial defense is led by goalie Sr. Brian Bohn (.605 sav).The only close defenseman to start both games is R Jr. Alex Kelly, which probably explains why their defense has given up 91 shots in 2 games. To Detroit. And Bellarmine. They are averaging 8.5 GAA, which isn’t bad, until you remember who they’ve played so far. They are only 55.6% on the man-down unit but have only give opponents 9 opportunities so far this year. RMU is 53.5% at the face-off x after 2 games.

I’m not going to lie, that was a tough to write. Still pretty bummed about losing to tough opponent on Tuesday night and trying to get hyped up for a team like this is difficult. There is no reason why we don’t win by 7-8 on Saturday. They are struggling against not only unranked opponents, but bad ones at that.

Time to make a statement and take care of business boys.

N0w you know, and knowing is half the battle.
