NEW CASTLE – Salesianum, the eighth-ranked team in the state, used six three-point shots in a 38-36 win at William Penn on Dec. 4. It was the season opener for both teams.

The Sals struggled early, falling behind, 10-2, as the Colonials’ defense was stingy. The Sals then hit back-to-back three-pointers, the first one by Darnell Vaughn and the second by Jack Brown, to cut the lead to 10-8. Salesianum trailed, 12-10, at the end of the first but hit three triples in the second quarter, two from Michael Wallace, to take a 19-18 halftime lead.

The offenses took over in the third quarter as Paul Brown scored his first points of the night and Vaughn scored on back-to-back drives to give the Sals a 27-22 advantage. Penn responded, and Jordan Harding knotted the score at 27 with a three.  The teams were tied at 29 before a three-pointer by Chris Cohill as the third quarter ended gave the Sals a 32-29 lead.

The fourth quarter was a defensive struggle that saw both teams struggle from the line. The Colonials missed the front end of three one-and-one opportunities and Salesianum in front, 33-32. The Sals finally capitalized as Vaughn and Brown converted inside to give push the lead to 37-32 with 1:38 left. A free throw from Paul Brown made it 38-34. William Penn’s

Terin Cochran scored inside with 10 seconds left to cut the deficit to two, and the Colonials still had a chance after Vaughn and Paul Brown both missed the front ends of one-and-ones.

Carlos Dean grabbed the rebound on Brown’s miss and drove the length of the floor but missed a layup as time expired.

Wallace scores twice, McCloskey preserves lead as Sals take soccer crown

Dialog reporter

SMYRNA – Salesianum’s soccer team posed in the net, eight fingers extended to signify the school’s eighth consecutive state championship. But this was the first time this group of seniors had allowed the opponent to score in the final, and it took a herculean effort from goalkeeper Emmett McCloskey to preserve a 2-1 victory over Appoquinimink on Nov. 18 at Smyrna High School.

Bryce Wallace was the offensive hero for Sallies, scoring twice in his final high school game. That includes the title-clincher in the 57th minute, where Ethan Lupichuk took a pass from Drew Blackwell deep into the corner to the left of the Appo goal and sent a cross into the crease in front of Jaguars keeper Jason Sommer. Wallace came streaking up the middle of the box and slid, knocking the ball into the net. Read more »
