WILMINGTON – The fifth-seeded Salesianum baseball team got an impressive start from junior Eugene Holler and defeated the 12th-seeded Milford Buccaneers, 3-0, on May 27. Holler pitched six innings of shutout baseball, allowing just one hit, before Jack Fiala pitched the seventh for the save.

The Sals’ offense scored two runs in the first with a two-out rally. Senior catcher Zach Miller drew a two-out walk and was replaced at first base by courtesy runner Joseph Poma. He stole second and then scampered to third on a throwing error. He scored on an infield single by Joseph Setting, and Setting came around on a hit-and-run double by Zach Gwynn.

Sallies got strong defensive plays from Alex Hinton and Gwynn to keep the 2-0 lead. Bucs freshman pitcher Chad Reichhold did a great job keeping the Sals’ hitters off balance after that first inning. The Sals added an unearned run in the fifth.

Salesianum had six hits, including five doubles by Gwynn, Miller, Hinton, Josh McGwire and Anthony Frechette. The Sals (13-6) will host Hodgson on Tuesday at 4 p.m.

PIKE CREEK – Padua took a two-run lead into the seventh inning of its softball game May 4 against Milford, and the Pandas retired the first batter of that final frame. A few runners got on, however, and an error opened the door for the Lady Bucs to score five runs for a 7-4 victory at Midway Softball Complex.

The early innings of the game were ruled by the pitchers, Padua’s Abby Cunningham and Milford’s Morgan Abbott. Cunningham was in trouble just once through five innings. That came in the first, when Rajene Bowe tripled to open the game and Darby Brennan laid down a bunt single, followed by a stolen base, to put runners on second and third with no outs. Read more »

With the win, the Buccaneers (16-7) earned a trip to the quarterfinals Sunday at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, where they will meet top seed Sanford at approximately 6:30 p.m.

It was St. Elizabeth that started fast, as Chris Cropper scored on a nice move on the baseline, and Nate Thomas converted a steal for a quick 4-0 lead. Bron Murray put Milford on the board, but Cropper hit a jumper from 15 feet to keep the Vikings up by four. A jumper by Son Martinez gave Milford its first lead, 13-12, at the end of the first quarter. Read more »

Pandas ride shooting of Mallon, Julian to win over Milford

Dialog reporter

WILMINGTON – After watching her team come out flat against St. Elizabeth on Saturday, Padua coach Emily Grugan was looking for a bit more jump in the Pandas’ step when they took the court Monday afternoon against Milford. An hour and a half later, the rookie coach was smiling as her team put 20 points on the board in the first quarter and dismantled a good Buccaneers team, 66-41.

“We came out very flat against St. Elizabeth, 23-6 in the first quarter, and that just can’t happen. We really worked on that at practice, starting fresh, starting intense and sharp, and I think the girls did that well. They executed the game plan very well at the beginning,” Grugan said.

Free-throw shooting helps lift Spartans boys past Milford, 43-34

MILLTOWN – St. Mark’s used some clutch free-throw shooting in the fourth quarter to hold off Milford Saturday night at home, 43-34.

The Spartans took a one-point lead into the final quarter, but Milford scored early to take the lead and tried to sit on the ball with about five minutes to go. On one such possession, junior Matt Williams managed a steal and a layup as St. Mark’s jumped back in front, but two free throws by the Milford kept the back-and-forth going.

Senior Nick Papa ended the roller coaster with a layup that made it 35-34 Spartans, and they would not relinquish the advantage. Williams hit a free throw, followed by another Papa layup, and it was 38-34. Senior T.J. Brown was particularly clutch in the final minutes, going six for nine from the line.

Williams, with six points, and Papa, who had four, keyed a first quarter in which the Spartans took a 13-4 lead. Milford struggled from the floor and could not get its fast-paced offense in gear. St. Mark’s frustrated the Bucs into one-shot possessions most of the night, as the Spartans controlled the boards.

Milford climbed steadily back into the game after the first quarter. The Bucs trailed by five at halftime and by just one after three. Milford had a chance to take the lead early in the third when St. Mark’s coach Nick Sanna was hit with a technical foul, but the Bucs missed both foul shots.

Papa led St. Mark’s with 13 points. He was joined in double figures by Williams (11) and Brown (10). Senior Tikeace Harris led the Buccaneers with nine.

The Spartans are now 11-4 and are back in action Monday night at St. Elizabeth (6-10) at 7:15 p.m. and again Tuesday at Sanford (10-6) at 5:15 p.m. Milford, which is 10-8, is home Thursday against 3-13 Lake Forest at 6:15 p.m.
