Seeing-eye shot stands up for Chantilly (Va.) in soccer win over Padua

By

PIKE CREEK – Padua resumed its challenging soccer schedule the afternoon of April 13, but on this occasion the Pandas came up just short. A goal in the 51st minute was enough to carry unbeaten Chantilly (Va.) past Delaware’s top-ranked Division I team, 1-0, on a sunny, warm afternoon at Goldey-Beacom College.

Padua got off to a fast start, getting a breakaway chance in the fourth minute of play. But the Pandas’ Paige Kenton and Chargers goalkeeper Ashley Burns converged at the ball at the top of the 18-yard box, and the keeper was able to knock the ball out of harm’s way. Read more »

Dialog reporter

PIKE CREEK – It took three days and two locations, but Padua and Concord finally kicked off their 2018 softball seasons March 27. When it was over, the Pandas were left standing with a 3-2 victory at the Midway Softball Complex on a cold afternoon, with just a bit of a drizzle mixed in for good measure.
