Delaware football looks for consistency after disappointing loss [video]

The Blue Hens focus on the final five games of the season after Saturday’s heartbreaking homecoming loss to Towson.

Towson scored two touchdowns in the final mintues of Saturday’s game in Newark, taking a 24-17 win over Delaware in front of a crowd of nearly 18,000 fans. Towson took the lead thanks to a 17-yard touchdown run by Darius Victor with just 49 seconds left in regulation.

The Hens overall record now stands at 4-3, and they’re 2-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association. With five games left, all against CAA opponents, head coach Dave Brock said the team needs better consistency.

“We have to figure out a way to be a more consistent football team. That’s probably our glaring problem right now,” Brock said Monday. “We have to find a way to be able to consistently perform well, and we haven’t been able to do that, and it’s an ongoing problem.”

Delaware heads to Virginia for a game at William and Mary this weekend. After that, it’s games against Rhode Island, at Albany, at New Hampshire and against Villanova to round out the regular season.
