Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT – Archmere’s soccer team controlled the play in its Diamond State Athletic Conference showdown with Delaware Military Academy on Sept. 27, but the Auks could break through just once. Sean Murray’s goal in the 56th minute, however, was enough, propelling Archmere to a 1-0 win on a sunny afternoon in Claymont and dealing DMA its first loss of the season.

The Auks had been frustrated all afternoon by Seahawks goalkeeper Jacob Davenport, but that changed when Murray took a pass from Reid Niermann and dribbled just inside the penalty box. He launched a shot to Davenport’s right, catching the inside of the netting to put his team ahead. Read more »

Late touchdown dooms Auks on road at Tatnall, 22-18

By

Dialog reporter

 

GREENVILLE – It took Tatnall’s football team five minutes to score on the Hornets’ last drive of the game Sept. 24 against Archmere, but the rewards were worth the wait. The final play from the Hornets was a screen pass from Carl Marvin to Sam Ragland, and the senior running back took it 17 yards to the end zone to give Tatnall a 22-18 win over the Auks in nonconference action.

It was the third touchdown on the afternoon for the elusive Ragland, and the first through the air. Tatnall improved to 2-1 while ending the Auks’ seven-game winning streak dating back to the middle of last season. Read more »

McKune, a junior, put Ursuline ahead, 3-1, when she pounced on a ball at the goal line behind Middletown goalie Lauren Berry with 13:52 remaining in the contest. The original shot had come from sophomore Jane Lyons, but it was deflected and stopped before it crossed the line. Read more »
