Sals roar back, gain lacrosse victory over St. Mark’s

MILLTOWN — The Salesianum lacrosse team found itself in trouble Saturday night at St. Mark’s, falling behind early, 3-0, but the Sals scored 12 of the final 13 goals for a 12-4 win over their archrival.

St. Mark’s started strong with a goal in the first minute. Junior Rhett Schweizer found the top corner of the net on a blast for the first score. That would be the only score in the opening quarter. The Spartans added two quick goals in the second, one in the first minute by senior James Magnani, the other by junior James Hamory.

St. Mark’s was playing well and had a chance to add to its lead with a two-man advantage for a full minute, but they could not convert. Salesianum made them pay a minute later as senior Bailey Martin got the team on the board. The Sals added two quick goals to tie, and it was 3-3 at the half.

Martin struck again with back-to-back scores in the third, and sophomore Luke Bianchino notched his first to make the lead 6-3 Sallies after three. Two goals in the first minute of the fourth extended that to 8-3, but the closest St. Mark’s got to Salesianum after that was 8-4.

With the win, Salesianum improved to 2-1. The Sals travel Wesley College in Dover on Tuesday to take on Easton (Md.) High School at 7 p.m. St. Mark’s is now 2-4 and returns to the field Tuesday at 3:45 p.m. at Wilmington Charter.

Top-ranked Cape Henlopen overcomes No. 2 Archmere in girls lacrosse

CLAYMONT — Top-ranked Cape Henlopend found itself trailing No. 2 Archmere, 4-1, with 10 minutes remaining in the first half of Saturday afternoon’s girls lacrosse showdown in Claymont. But senior Allie Yeager added two goals, including one that would tie the game at four at halftime, and the Vikings opened it up in the second half for a 13-7 win.

Archmere took its last lead at 5-4 five minutes into the second half as junior Elisabeth Schlitz scored her second goal of the game, but the Vikings would tie it up again a few minutes later on a score by junior Jordan Brown. Yeager gave Cape its first lead of the contest less than a minute later, connecting for the hat trick.

The Auks would not fold, knotting it at six when sophomore Presley Conaty found the net, but the Vikings took the lead for good a minute later and scored seven of the game’s last eight tallies in the final 12 minutes.

Cape Henlopen, the five-time defending state champions, held Archmere’s Kate Payne and Amanda Olsen to a total of three goals, well below their season average.

The Auks lost for the first time in five games and are off until Friday, when they host Polytech (5-0) at 3:45 p.m. Cape is now 4-0 and travels to New Castle County again on Wednesay for a 5:30 p.m. matchup with St. Mark’s, which is 2-1.

WILMINGTON — Throughout history, Catholics have spent Lent with the Stations of the Cross. The Stations devotion has been passed along, often through writing and live performances. Today, however, the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection is accessible in ways unimaginable just a generation ago – through QR codes and a smartphone application.

As is often the case, young people are leading the way with the electronic Stations of the Cross. Students at Padua Academy now have another use for their ever-present technology, with information about and reflections on the Stations available with a scan by a smartphone. Read more »
