For The Dialog

 

WILMINGTON – Fourth-ranked St. Mark’s and rival Salesianum, the No. 6 team, played a classic baseball game May 8 at Frawley Stadium, with the Spartans pulling out a 2-1 win in eight innings.

Spartans starter Billy Sullivan was throwing straight gas between 91 and 96 miles per hour, with at least a half-dozen major-league scouts in attendance. Sallies starter Eugene Holler was also dealing as the teams put on an old-fashioned exciting pitching duel. Read more »

Padua overwhelms Charter in soccer shutout

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Charter of Wilmington goalkeeper Lydia McIntyre wears two zeroes on her jersey, and she was the main reason the score between the Force and top-ranked Padua on May 8 featured only zeroes for nearly three-quarters of the match. But the Pandas’ crisp passing could be denied only so long, and Padua captured a 2-0 win over their fellow Division I title contender.

Padua had scored 11 combined goals in its last two games, but McIntyre – with several assists from her teammates – changed that trend. The keeper was credited with 13 saves, several of which were very impressive. Her first notable stop came in the 15th minute, when Lindsay Machamer got loose near the top of the 18-yard box. Her shot was deflected, but McIntyre was there to make the stop. Read more »

Milford stuns Padua with seventh-inning comeback

By

Dialog reporter

 

PIKE CREEK – Padua took a two-run lead into the seventh inning of its softball game May 4 against Milford, and the Pandas retired the first batter of that final frame. A few runners got on, however, and an error opened the door for the Lady Bucs to score five runs for a 7-4 victory at Midway Softball Complex.

The early innings of the game were ruled by the pitchers, Padua’s Abby Cunningham and Milford’s Morgan Abbott. Cunningham was in trouble just once through five innings. That came in the first, when Rajene Bowe tripled to open the game and Darby Brennan laid down a bunt single, followed by a stolen base, to put runners on second and third with no outs. Read more »

The postponement of the Mass at St. John the Beloved Church honoring police, firefighters and emergency workers was requested by the Wilmington Police Department on behalf of the area’s law enforcement communities, so more first responders will have the opportunity to attend the May 5 memorial service for Delaware State Police Corporal Stephen Ballard, who was killed in the line of duty April 26.

In addition to Corporal Ballard, Blue Mass organizers this year have planned to honor fallen Wilmington firefighters Captain Christopher Leach and Lieutenants Jerry Fickes and Ardythe Hope; Lewes firefighter Timothy McClanahan; Delaware Correctional Officer, Sergeant Steven Floyd; Dover Police Department’s Patrolman Robert DaFonte and Cadet James Watts; and Ocean City firefighter and paramedic, Howard Allen Schweitzer.
