By

WOODCREST – St. Mark’s battled in its boys volleyball match at Conrad, but the Red Wolves had too much firepower and swept the Spartans, 3-0, on the afternoon of May 10.

St. Mark’s – who dressed just seven players – had few answers for the Red Wolves’ Logan Muller. The senior hitter led a potent attack with 12 kills, and he threw in a block for good measure. John Hoopes had four kills, while Nicholas Shortlidge added three. 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 »
