By

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. But on Feb. 16 against Conrad, the No. 1-ranked team in the state according to 302Sports.com, Mayo went inside, to great effect.

Mayo took a cross-court pass from Arianna Henry and drove into the lane, splitting three defenders and putting up an off-balance scoop shot off the glass for the last two of her 30 points, giving St. Elizabeth a 55-53 win in front of an electric crowd at the St. E Center. The fourth-ranked Vikings grabbed perhaps their most impressive win of the season, while the Red Wolves suffered their first loss to an in-state foe. Read more »

Pandas fall in double overtime to Conrad, season ends

Dialog reporter

 

BRANDYWINE HUNDRED – When Conrad visited Padua on Jan. 29, it took three overtimes before the Pandas prevailed by seven points, so the teams’ first-round playoff matchup on March 1 figured to be one of the better games on the schedule. The teams didn’t disappoint, going two extra periods before Conrad was able to squeak out a 73-70 win at Brandywine High School.

The game had a bit of everything, and each played a role in the final outcome. No. 18 Conrad – which features three eighth-, ninth- and 10th-grade students and just one senior – battled the veteran and 15th-seeded Pandas, who started three seniors. The teams combined to attempt 59 free throws, 43 for Conrad. For every missed shot there was a big made field goal. The contest even included a technical foul on the Pandas because a player’s uniform number didn’t match what was in the official scorebook. Read more »

It takes three overtimes, but Pandas outlast Conrad

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – It took Padua more than three and a half quarters to finally gain the lead against Conrad, and it would take a lot longer than regulation to keep it. The extra work was worth it, however, as the Pandas evened their record with a 58-51 triple-overtime win over Conrad on Friday afternoon in Wilmington.

For three quarters, it looked like the young Redskins – who feature just one senior, along with three freshmen and three eighth-graders – would pull off the road victory. They controlled the rebounds all day, turning the second and third chances into putback points and driving through and around the Pandas. Behind the scoring of freshman Jordan Rook and eighth-grader Julie Kulesza, they led by as much as 34-23 late in the third quarter after a seven-point run. That is when the Pandas began the turnaround. Read more »
