Dialog reporter

 

BRANDYWINE HUNDRED – Salesianum brought its veteran volleyball team to Brandywine on March 23, to meet the host Bulldogs, whose program is in its first season. The Sals shook off a tough challenge from the newcomers in the first set and won going away in three sets. It was the Sals’s 18th consecutive win over the past two seasons.

Salesianum (1-0) entered this season with a 60-6-1 record over the past three years, including a 17-0 record and the New Castle County championship last season, when they dropped just two sets. But that didn’t seem to matter in the early going to Brandywine, who defeated Mount Pleasant on the road earlier in the week in the team’s inaugural match. Read more »

On a cold evening, the Buccaneers controlled the play in the first half behind the play of sophomore Summer Stewart, junior Karli Cauley and senior Megan Bailey. The Bucs had five first-half corner kicks but couldn’t beat Auks keeper Kyra Giakas. She had four saves in the half, allowing Archmere to go into intermission in a scoreless tie.

The Auks picked up their first corner of the game in the 45th minute, but they could not convert. Caravel finally scored the first goal as Marie Pennington connected off a corner kick in the 48th minute. The Buccaneers’ stout defense prevented Archmere from getting too many quality chances, and the home team struck again in the 72nd minute. This time, they converted on a counter-attack, with Stewart pounding the ball past a diving Giakas.

The Buccaneers (1-0) will host St. Georges Tech on Friday at 6 p.m., and the Auks travel to Wilmington Friends for a match Friday at 3:45 p.m.
