Sals come up just short in football showdown with top-ranked Middletown

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Salesianum had a 13-0 lead over top-ranked Middletown midway through the second quarter of the teams’ football showdown on Oct. 13, but the visiting Cavaliers scored three different ways on their way to a 19-13 win in front of a sellout crowd at Baynard Stadium.

The teams were tied at 13 when the second-ranked Sals sacked Middletown quarterback Drew Fry on a fourth-and-six deep in Salesianum territory with 4:47 to go in the third quarter. On the second play of the Sals’ possession, however, Cavaliers defensive back Tamar Teagle stepped in front of a Zach Gwynn pass and returned it 40 yards for the decisive touchdown. Read more »

Middletown brings Pandas’ run as state soccer champs to an end

SMYRNA – Middletown entered the girls’ Division I state championship girls soccer match with Padua already without the Delaware player of the year, Alyssa Poarch, and shortly before halftime, the Cavaliers lost goalkeeper Taylor Wolf to an injury. But an early goal by Alexa Rodriguez held up, thanks mainly to the play of emergency keeper Mary Warren, and the top-seeded Cavaliers ended No. 2 Padua’s five-year reign as state champions with a 1-0 win June 3 at Smyrna High School.

Each team had to play a half staring into a setting sun at Charles V. Williams Stadium, and Rodriguez took advantage in the 13th minute. The Pandas had controlled possession until then, but they had few opportunities to beat Wolf. The momentum swung Middletown’s way, and when Rodriguez found herself with the ball and a bit of space about 25 yards from the net, she struck. Her blast just eluded the outstretched fingers of keeper Katie Szczerba – who had a bright sun in her face – and tucked under the crossbar for the game’s lone tally. Read more »

St. Elizabeth senior Newswanger played four years of hockey for Middletown, wore ‘C’ this season

 

WILMINGTON — When Jack Newswanger was an eighth-grader at Christ the Teacher, he was playing recreational ice hockey, and St. Elizabeth, his high school of choice, had a team. So far, so good.

By the time he entered the school, however, the program had been shelved, so Newswanger and several other St. Elizabeth students connected with the Middletown High School team. So began four years of being a Viking most of the time and a Cavalier when he strapped on the skates. Read more »

Raiders outlast Middletown for 3-2 field hockey win

WILMINGTON – A year ago, Paige McKune was playing field hockey for Middletown. On Sept. 21, when the Cavaliers visited Serviam Field to meet Ursuline, McKune scored what proved to be the winning goal – for the Raiders, who held on for a 3-2 win in an entertaining matinee.

McKune, a junior, put Ursuline ahead, 3-1, when she pounced on a ball at the goal line behind Middletown goalie Lauren Berry with 13:52 remaining in the contest. The original shot had come from sophomore Jane Lyons, but it was deflected and stopped before it crossed the line. Read more »

Late goal carries Padua to season-opening field hockey win

WILMINGTON – Padua and Middletown were deadlocked at a goal apiece through most of the second half of Friday’s season-opening nonconference field hockey game, and for a long time, it appeared the match was headed into overtime. But a deflection by junior Katie Buczik with 7:40 remaining proved to be the deciding tally in the Pandas’ 2-1 win over the Cavaliers at a sweltering Forbes Field.

The goal was enough because the Pandas’ defense shut down the Cavaliers in the second half. Buczik made sure the teams would be leaving on time when she tipped a pass from Jill Sherman waist-high past Middletown goalie Lauren Berry. Read more »

Sals overcome loss of QB Cannon, head to title game

WILMINGTON – Colby Reeder scored four touchdowns, helping Salesianum overcome a stiff challenge from Middletown and the loss of starting quarterback Garrett Cannon in the Sals’ 27-21 win in the state Division I semifinal Friday night at Baynard Stadium. The win sends the top-seeded Sals to the championship game next Saturday against the winner of Saturday’s semifinal between William Penn and Smyrna.

Reeder’s and Salesianum’s second score, which came on a 4-yard fourth-down run, was perhaps the most important, not so much because it closed Middletown’s lead to 15-13, but because of what happened to Cannon on the two-point conversion attempt. As a defender gave chase in the backfield, Cannon appeared to get his right cleat stuck in the grass. As he was hit and spun around, his right foot remained stuck in its original spot. Read more »

The running game of Zach Jarome and Colby Reeder advanced the ball to the 2, and quarterback Garrett Cannon took it in for a 7-0 lead. Read more »
