WILMINGTON – Concord looked to be in control of Saturday night’s game against Salesianum at sold-out Baynard Stadium, as its defense stopped the Sals cold in the first half. But No. 2 Salesianum rWORD at halftime, storming back for a 21-7 victory.

The fifth-ranked Raiders, who thrashed Dover the previous week, took advantage of an early turnover to take a quick lead. Brian Dennis scored on a 17-yard run with 7:44 to play in the first quarter. His score came after quarterback Austin Coughenour kept the drive alive with a 16-yard completion on fourth and 15. Read more »

St. Mark’s products making a difference for W.Va. college football program

Dialog reporter

 

Two St. Mark’s products are helping a Division II university off to a fast start in 2014.

Jeffrey Ziemba, a 2012 graduate of St. Mark’s High School who is the starting quarterback at Shepherd University in West Virginia, is showing Rams fans the same form he did in leading St. Mark’s to the 2010 Division I state title.

Ziemba, a sophomore, completed all 14 of his pass attempts in a 56-0 victory over Fairmont State last Saturday in Shepherdstown. He threw for 262 yards and a touchdown, and he also ran the ball three times for 22 yards. The week before, in the season opener, Ziemba completed 17 of 25 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns. His completion percentage for the season is 79.5 percent. Shepherd is 2-0.

In the game against Fairmont State, Ziemba’s classmate, running back Jabre Lolley, ran for 78 yards on just nine carries. He ran for touchdowns of one, 11 and 16 yards. Lolley has carried 23 times for 131 yards (5.7 per attempt) and five scores in the Rams’ first two games. He also has one pass reception for two yards.

The Rams, members of the Mountain East Conference, are ranked 11th in NCAA Division II by the American Football Coaches Association, one spot behind West Chester University. They return to action Saturday at noon at Urbana (Ohio).

Pandas overcome game St. Mark’s club, sweep in volleyball

By

Staff reporter

WILMINGTON – St. Mark’s trailed Padua, two sets to none, in Tuesday night’s Catholic Conference volleyball showdown, but the Spartans came out fired up in the third game, taking a 10-3 advantage. The young Spartans, thought by some to be in a rebuilding year, withstood a furious comeback by the defending state champions, but in the end Padua just had too much.

Padua caught up to St. Mark’s at 23-all, lost the next point, then scored the final three of the night to prevail, 26-24, in the set and 3-0 in the match in a sold-out gymnasium. An ace down the left sideline by junior Megan Barnett sealed the comeback to give Padua its 22nd straight win over a Delawre opponent dating back to Oct. 23, 2012, when the Pandas lost a regular-season matchup at St. Mark’s.

Pandas need overtime to edge Ursuline, 2-1, in field hockey

WILMINGTON – Rivals met on the field hockey pitch Monday afternoon as Padua hosted Ursuline in a key early season matchup. Ursuline received great goaltending from Katherine Casey, but the Pandas’ attack prevailed in overtime in a 2-1 win.

Padua jumped out to a first-half lead on a goal by junior Abigail Budart, who converted a nice pass from Gabriela DelliCampagni. The Pandas had other opportunities, but Casey kept it a one-goal game.

Ursuline would get some scoring chances late in the half, and senior Lindsay Russell tied it up on a rebound after an initial save by Padua’s Danielle Clerval.

Neither team could find the net in the second half, sending the contest to a 10-minute sudden-death overtime. Just over a minute into the extra period, senior Shannon McGee streaked down the field and blasted one past Casey for the winner.

The Pandas outshot Ursuline, 15-5, improving to 2-0 for the season. They next play at Tatnall on Wednesday (1-2) at 3:45 p.m. The Raiders are now 2-2 and travel to the University of Delaware on Sunday, when they will meet Middletown (2-2) at 3:30 p.m.

William Penn holds off Sals in battle of football’s top-ranked teams

WILMINGTON – Top-ranked William Penn hit the road Saturday night and defeated No. 2 Salesianum, 16-10, earning their first win over the Sals in football since 2005. The Colonials improved to 2-0, while Salesianum fell to 1-1.

The Sals had some early chances but could not capitalize. William Penn fumbled the first punt of the game, and the Sals recovered at the Colonials’ 30-yard line. On fourth down, however, running back Colby Reeder came up just short. Salesianum’s next possession ended with an interception on Penn’s 7-yard line.

William Penn marched 93 yards on 12 plays for the game’s first score, with standout running back Reggie Carroll finding the end zone on a 28-yard run. The Colonials added a field goal following another interception for a 10-0 lead.

Salesianum’s Sean Smith got his team on the board with a field goal with four seconds left in the first half.

After coming close several times, the Sals finally found the end zone after halftime. They drove 78 yards on 14 plays, the last one a 10-yard run by Michael Sanzone on a fourth-and-eight with 1:31 left in the third. The tie was short-lived, though, as William Penn’s Marvell Watts took the kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. Salesianum blocked the extra point.

Salesianum would have two more chances to retake the lead. They reached the Colonials’ 22-yard-line on the first drive, but Reeder was stopped for a four-yard loss on third down, and a pass on fourth down was incomplete. A William Penn fumble opened another door, but the Sals could not capitalize.

Reeder finished with 88 yards on 16 carries to lead the offensive effort. The Sals are back home Saturday night against Concord (1-1) at 7:30 p.m.

William Penn got 157 yards rushing on 26 carries by Carroll. The Colonials host A.I. DuPont (1-1) Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.
