By

Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT – Brianna Niggebrugge’s first goal of the season gave Padua a 2-0 lead 10 minutes into the second half, and that was enough as the Pandas took a 2-1 win at Archmere on Sept. 21 in Claymont. With the win, Padua – the state’s top Division I team, according to 302Sports.com – improved to 2-0 on the season.

Niggebrugge was on the doorstep to take the rebound of a saved shot, and she chipped it high into the top of the cage over the prone Auks goalkeeper, Mady McDougal. Read more »

Mackenzie Porter opened the scoring at the 27:39 mark of the first half, depositing a crossing pass from Alyssa McGinnis into the cage. The goal was made possible by an end-to-end carry by Brandi Cox. Hope Mintzer followed three minutes later, rolling one that deflected waist-high and past Vikings goalkeeper Jill Aranilla.

Power’s heroics in goal not enough as Tower Hill ends Padua’s field hockey season

NEWARK – After knocking six-time defending champion Cape Henlopen out of the DIAA field hockey tournament on Saturday, fourth-seeded Tower Hill entered its semifinal against top-seeded Padua at the University of Delaware’s Rullo Stadium on Nov. 15 on a high. The Hillers picked up where they left off, scoring four times in the second half to knock off the Pandas, 4-0.

Tower Hill blitzed Padua goalie Hailey Power early with seven shots on goal, but Power turned away all of them. She had five spectacular saves in the first, but Padua’s defense stabilized, and the teams entered intermission scoreless. Read more »

Polytech edges Auks in defensive-minded field hockey tournament matchup

By

Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT – The gray skies and light drizzle were an apt setting for the first-round field hockey playoff battle between Polytech and Archmere on Nov. 9, at least from the Auks’ perspective. The Panthers scored 15 minutes into the first half of the defense-dominated game, and that held up for the 1-0 win.

Much of the early portion of the contest was played near the middle of the pitch, although 10th-seeded Polytech managed a deflected shot off a penalty corner 12 minutes in. They capitalized on an opportunity three minutes later, as Lacy Bayley was able to convert a crossing pass from Madilyn McKay at the 14:32 mark. Bayley took the pass, turned and beat Archmere goalie Mady McDougal to the far corner. Read more »

The fall regular season has ended, but there are a bunch of postseason games and matches this week.

Field hockey
First round (seedings in parentheses) 
Wednesday
(10) Polytech (10-4-1) at (7) Archmere (11-4), 2:30 p.m. The Auks had a great regular season, defeating some good teams, but they face a tough Panthers team that was in the top five most of the year. The Auks will look to grab an early lead and make the Panthers play from behind.
Second round
(1) Padua (16-0) vs. (8) Friends/(9) Conrad winner, time and site TBA.
Polytech/Archmere winner vs. (2) Caravel, time and site TBA
 
Volleyball (seedings in parentheses)
Semifinals
Thursday
(6) Ursuline vs (2) Archmere at St. Mark’s High School, time TBA. Archmere swept the Raiders when the teams met on Oct. 7, but Ursuline has already pulled off one upset in the tournament by sweeping Padua in the quarterfinal round. Both teams play stellar defense. On offense, the Raiders will turn to Taylor Wright and Corinne Furey, while Archmere’s main weapons are Lexi Kelly and Julia Kochie. Ursuline has a Kochie of its own, Alexandra.
The second semifinal will pit top-seeded Tower Hill against fourth-seeded and defending state champion Delaware Military Academy.
