Kickers Delicate goes for the record

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Matthew Delicate may be going through his worst season as a Kicker.  But he's just one goal away from having a big record all to his own.

Delicate needs just one goal to break the career record for goals in a Kickers uniform.  The VCU grad tied Rob Ukrop with his 63rd career goal on a PK last Friday night against Pittsburgh.  That was only Delicate's third goal of the season.

The Kickers as a whole haven't scored many goals, but they're hoping the three goal outburst against the Riverhounds will kick-start the offense.  There are not many teams below them in the standings, but they'll play another Saturday.  Dayton and Pittsburgh have combined to win just six games all season.

The Kickers are 6-6-5, and currently tied with two other teams for sixth in the USL Pro standings.  Kickoff is 7pm at City Stadium.
