Stittsville's Delaney sisters combine

Ottawa East News

It was a sister show for the Robert Morris University Colonials women’s hockey team on Saturday, Jan. 8.

Playing against the University of Connecticut Huskies, Brianna Delaney of Stittsville scored the first two goals of the game with both being assisted by her sister Cobina Delaney. This was the first time in their careers at Pittsburgh’s Robert Morris University that Cobina had assisted on a goal by Brianna – and she did it twice within eight minutes of the game.

With her two goals in this game, Brianna Delaney, who is a junior at Robert Morris University, became just the second Colonial to surpass the 80 point plateau in her career. She is also just the third Robert Morris University player to score 40 career goals as her second goal of the game was the 40th of her Robert Morris University career.

It was also Brianna’s team leading sixth multi-point game of the season and the 21st such occasion in her career.

Brianna also leads her team in both points, 18, and goals, 8, this season.

While this game marked the first time that Cobina had assisted on a goal by Brianna, the reverse has happened four times as Brianna has assisted on all four of Cobina’s goals this season.

On Sunday, Jan. 9, in another game against the University of Connecticut Huskies, Brianna Delaney picked up a third period assist to break the all-time Robert Morris University school record for assists in a career. It was her 42nd assist of her career.

What made this record breaking assist even more memorable for Brianna was that it came on a goal by her younger sister Cobina Delaney. This was Cobina’s fifth goal of the season, all of which have been assisted by Brianna.
