Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Indira Purnell scattered five hits and struck out nine, and she hit a solo home run, to lead William Penn to a 4-3 win in nonconference softball on May 15 at Canby Park.

A strong wind blew in from right field throughout the day, wreaking havoc on fly balls and resulting in a centerfielder catching one in the infield for an out, but Purnell used it to her advantage leading off the fourth. She sent a shot over the leftfielder’s head, with the wind taking the ball away from the fielder. Purnell never stopped running and easily beat the throw home to put the Colonials ahead, 2-0.

WILMINGTON – If Rita Offutt was writing the story of her high school years, the last few pages might be blank, but the beginning would be chock full of interesting content.

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 »
