BEAR – St. Mark’s had controlled the pace of play throughout much of Saturday’s state championship soccer game against Salesianum, and the Spartans appeared headed to their first title since 2001. The clock was stopped, as the referee was keeping track of extra time on the field at Caravel Academy. With a 2-1 lead, the Spartans remained aggressive, and their fans prepared to celebrate.

“Come on, blow the whistle,” St. Mark’s coach Dan Swasey said to himself on the sideline.

Catholic Charities: Requests for emergency food at all-time high

November 18th, 2011 Posted in Our Diocese Tags: ,

In response to an overwhelming demand for emergency food, Catholic Charities Inc. of the Diocese of Wilmington is expanding its semiannual “Stock the Pantry” drive from November through February 2012.

“Especially during the holiday season, no family should go hungry,” said Richelle Vible, Catholic Charities’ executive director. “The stagnant economy continues to push low-income households to the brink. Membership in our food cooperatives continues to climb, and requests for our emergency food distributions are at an all-time high.  Compounding the strain is the diminished inventory of food we usually receive through donations.  Our neighbors need your support.”

NEWARK — The record will show that St. Mark’s swept Archmere, 3-0, in the state volleyball championship Nov. 13, but the final score does not tell the real story. Each of the three sets was decided by the minimum two points — 26-24, 25-23 and 25-23.

The third-seeded Spartans came from behind in all three sets, including scoring the final seven points in the first, to claim their second consecutive title at the Bob Carpenter Center on the campus of the University of Delaware.

CLAYMONT – Archmere football coach Jerry Ambrogi saw that St. Elizabeth would take away the outside running game, so he turned to the middle. And the Vikings, missing injured linebacker Eric Patton, could not stop the ground assault as Archmere ran to a 49-7 win Saturday morning.

Auks quarterback David McCrae ran for two touchdowns and threw for three more as Archmere improved to 9-1and guaranteed itself a Division II playoff berth. The win was a measure of revenge for Archmere, which lost, 35-0, to St. Elizabeth in last year’s Division II final.

WILMINGTON – From the reaction on the field Friday night, you wouldn’t know that St. Mark’s football season had most likely just ended and Salesianum would be moving on to the state playoffs next weekend.

Jabre Lolley’s third touchdown of the game, a 6-yard run with 42 seconds left, gave the Spartans their first lead of the game, and any hopes of a last-minute Salesianum comeback were dashed when St. Mark’s senior T.J. Yeninas picked up a fumble on the ensuing kickoff and sprinted 25 yards into the end zone, giving the Spartans a 28-17 win in the annual battle Friday night at Baynard Stadium.
