Dialog reporter

NEWARK – Salesianum took a two-point lead over Sanford in the teams’ meeting in the DIAA boys’ quarterfinal round on March 3 at the Bob Carpenter Center, but the Sals could manage just two more points over the final 5:03. The seventh-seeded Warriors, meanwhile, put up 10 points in the same span and moved on to the semifinals with a 42-36 win.

The final lead came courtesy of Darnell Vaughan. With his team trailing by one, the junior drove the lane for a short field goal. He was fouled and completed the three-point play, but that 34-32 advantage would be short-lived. Corey Perkins restored the Sanford lead with a three-point shot 75 seconds later. Read more »

Dialog reporter

WILMINGTON – Ber’Nyah Mayo has done much of her damage this season for the St. Elizabeth girls basketball team from the outside, raining down three-point shots on the Vikings’ opponents.
