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

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 »

Padua overwhelms Charter in soccer shutout

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 »

CLAYMONT – The St Mark’s Spartans soccer team had a tough start to the season, but they found their game a 1-1 draw against the fourth-ranked Archmere Auks on April 26. Goalkeeper Nicole Clark had a big match for the Spartans as she held the high-powered Auks offense to one goal.
