Franklin Pierce University Ravens 2014 Preview

Franklin Pierce University Ravens

The Ravens of Franklin Pierce University finished the 2013 season with a 5-8 record. They ended their season on a winning note, when they defeated Pace on the road with a 12-10 win. This is the fifth season with Rick Senatore at the helm for the Ravens. Heading into 2014 he is hoping his squad can stay healthy. He talked about the team having a number of season ending injuries in 2013 that cost the team a few wins. One of those season ending injuries was to Eddie Noonan, he was the Ravens 2012 leading scorer and he missed all of last season with a broken jaw. Coach Senatore is looking for big things out of Noonan this spring.

Looking to help Noonan in 2014 is Northeast-10 All-Rookie team member Casey Burnett. As a freshman Burnett put in 16 goals and 16 assists from his attack position. Also, returning for the Ravens is leading scorer Kevin Dargin. Dargin is a junior attack who had 26 goals and 8 assists in 2013. Looking to add some scoring punch from the midfield is Erik Kelly. Kelly is a junior who scored 20 goals and added 8 assists last spring. Between the pipes the Ravens will look to lean heavy on junior goalie Don Denman. Denman started all thirteen games last season for Franklin Pierce.

In the Northeast-10 coach Senatore believes the team to beat is LeMoyne. The LeMoyne Dolphins are the 2013 NCAA champions as well as the 2013 Northeast-10 Tournament champions. A dark-horse in the conference this spring looks like Assumption. This will be the second season for coach Keith Loftis at Assumption. According to coach Senatore, “he (Loftis) is starting to get things in place.”
