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

By

Dialog reporter

 

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 »

Woman relates story of being born in China, which welcomed Jews during WWII when others wouldn’t

 

WILMINGTON — More than 70 years have passed since the end of World War II, but the memories remain for those who lived through it, while others who weren’t alive in the 1940s have taken an interest in that part of history.

Two such people were at Padua Academy earlier this month. Yvonne Daniel spoke about her experience as a young child from a group of thousands of Jewish people who lived in Shanghai, China, during the war. In fact, she was born there. Read more »

PIKE CREEK – Fifth-seeded Delaware Military Academy used solid pitching and great defense to edge No. 12 Padua, 1-0, in a first-round softball tournament game on May 23 at Midway Softball Complex. Freshmen Delani Sheehan pitched a seven-hitter, and Alexus Novotny drove in the only run for the Seahawks (14-5).

The Pandas started strong in the top of the first inning as Caitlyn Baxter had a leadoff infield single and advanced to third on a Hannah Williams double with no outs. After a pop out, senior Abby Cunningham hit a fly ball to right fielder Ashlee Conaty, who fired home to nail the speedy Baxter and keep the game scoreless.

Padua overwhelms Charter in soccer shutout

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Charter of Wilmington goalkeeper Lydia McIntyre wears two zeroes on her jersey, and she was the main reason the score between the Force and top-ranked Padua on May 8 featured only zeroes for nearly three-quarters of the match. But the Pandas’ crisp passing could be denied only so long, and Padua captured a 2-0 win over their fellow Division I title contender.

Padua had scored 11 combined goals in its last two games, but McIntyre – with several assists from her teammates – changed that trend. The keeper was credited with 13 saves, several of which were very impressive. Her first notable stop came in the 15th minute, when Lindsay Machamer got loose near the top of the 18-yard box. Her shot was deflected, but McIntyre was there to make the stop. Read more »
