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
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
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
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.
