St. Mark’s rides second-half surge to girls lacrosse win over Padua

By

MILLTOWN – St. Mark’s used a goal-scoring spree early in the second half to take control of what had been a tight contest as the Spartans rolled to a 15-7 win in girls lacrosse over Catholic rival Padua. St. Mark’s remained undefeated on the young season, while the Pandas suffered their first loss on a cold, damp day where spring remained just a cruel rumor.

Kendra Schweizer opened the second-half scoring, giving the Spartans a 7-5 lead, but it turned into the Megan Noonan Show after that. She scored three goals in a span of 2:49, prompting the Pandas to call a timeout and stretching the hosts’ lead to four. Read more »

Bad-hop walkoff single lifts Hodgson past St. Elizabeth in baseball matinee

By

Dialog reporter

NEW CASTLE – St. Elizabeth dodged one threat in the bottom of the seventh inning in the Vikings’ nonconference baseball game against Hodgson on April 5, but there would be no second such escape. Donnie Weaver’s single scored C.J. Deery as the Silver Eagles stretched their season-opening winning streak to five at a windy and cold Wilson Field.

The score was tied at four heading into Hodgson’s final at bat. With one out, Ryan Speed hit a high fly toward right-center field, but the wind carried the ball in the direction of the foul line. The ball fell in, and Speed reached third with a triple. Deery walked, and with runners at the corners, Connor Megginson laid down a safety squeeze bunt toward first base. St. Elizabeth first baseman Brett Brooks scooped it up and fired to catcher Chris Strickland, who tagged a sliding Speed out. Read more »

WILMINGTON – On a frigid day at Canby Park, Concord’s baseball team warmed up its bats just enough to take a 5-3 nonconference baseball victory over St. Elizabeth on April 3. It was the Raiders’ first win of the season.

Sister Jean Rohe, teacher of generations, celebrates 100

Dialog reporter

ASTON, Pa. — Over the course of her ministry in education, Sister Jean Clare Rohe spent 27 years in the Diocese of Wilmington. What makes that extraordinary is that her first assignment in the diocese began in 1938, and her final one concluded in 2004.

Sister Jean’s three assignments in Wilmington are just a part of what she has accomplished in her first century. She turned 100 on March 12, “a simple farm girl that made good,” she said a few days before the big one. Her congregation, the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, celebrated at Assisi House in Aston, Pa., with a day that included Mass in her honor and a party that brought together some 65 family members and friends.

By

Dialog reporter

PIKE CREEK – It took three days and two locations, but Padua and Concord finally kicked off their 2018 softball seasons March 27. When it was over, the Pandas were left standing with a 3-2 victory at the Midway Softball Complex on a cold afternoon, with just a bit of a drizzle mixed in for good measure.

Snow caused the game to be postponed from Friday, and a rescheduled date of Monday was wiped out because of wet field conditions at Concord. The teams moved to Padua’s home field to get the game in, and it worked out for the Pandas. Read more »
