Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT – The weather on the afternoon of Oct. 12 took a turn toward the cool side, but the Archmere field hockey team’s offense was cooking. The Auks controlled the ball from the get-go and scored a 4-0 win over Newark Charter in Diamond State Athletic Conference action.

The visiting Patriots earned an early penalty corner, but after that it was all Auks. Archmere had six penalty corners in the first 13 minutes of the game and nearly scored three times on the first five of those, as one shot clanged off the post, another was sent over the net and a third resulted in a kick save for Newark Charter keeper Madison Soyer. They finally found the back of the cage on the sixth, as Olivia Baldi ripped a shot from the top of the circle at the 16:45 mark. Read more »

CHESTER, Pa. – Archmere and Wilmington Charter took to the road Oct. 10 for their Diamond State Athletic Conference boys soccer match, and under the lights at Talen Energy Stadium, the Auks ended up shining the brightest. Andrew Rosenbaum scored the only goal of the evening as Archmere made the short trip home to Claymont with a 1-0 win.

Both teams had opportunities to score, and Charter had controlled the play in the second half before the Auks struck. Archmere turned away a Force shot into the crease, and Rosenbaum took possession of the ball. He sent it to Zach Dainton near midfield and took off downfield. Dainton pushed a through ball on the give-and-go, and Rosenbaum had a step on the nearest Charter defender. Keeper Matt Bowen came out, but Rosenbaum was able to drill it belt high to Bowen’s left in the 65th minute. Read more »
