PIKE CREEK – It took three days and two locations, but Padua and Concord finally kicked off their 2018 softball seasons March 27. When it was over, the Pandas were left standing with a 3-2 victory at the Midway Softball Complex on a cold afternoon, with just a bit of a drizzle mixed in for good measure.

Dialog reporter

WILMINGTON – Ursuline’s lacrosse team hung with nine-time defending state champion Cape Henlopen for much of the first half in the teams’ meeting on March 26, but the Vikings used a 7-0 run to pull away from the Raiders. Cape improved to 2-0 on the young season with an 11-3 win at a soggy Serviam Field.

Senior Lindsay Monigle opened the scoring for the Vikings, going upstairs to beat the Ursuline goalkeeper, but Jane Lyons knotted the score, bouncing a shot into the cage after taking a long pass from Val Cradler. A patient Raiders approach, combined with the slow turf, kept the scoring to a minimum, and Brigid Monahan turned away several shots to keep her team in the hunt. Read more »
