On a cold evening, the Buccaneers controlled the play in the first half behind the play of sophomore Summer Stewart, junior Karli Cauley and senior Megan Bailey. The Bucs had five first-half corner kicks but couldn’t beat Auks keeper Kyra Giakas. She had four saves in the half, allowing Archmere to go into intermission in a scoreless tie.

The Auks picked up their first corner of the game in the 45th minute, but they could not convert. Caravel finally scored the first goal as Marie Pennington connected off a corner kick in the 48th minute. The Buccaneers’ stout defense prevented Archmere from getting too many quality chances, and the home team struck again in the 72nd minute. This time, they converted on a counter-attack, with Stewart pounding the ball past a diving Giakas.

The Buccaneers (1-0) will host St. Georges Tech on Friday at 6 p.m., and the Auks travel to Wilmington Friends for a match Friday at 3:45 p.m.

Sals dominant on way to seventh straight state soccer championship

Dialog reporter

 

SMYRNA – It was a tale of two halves in the state Division I soccer championship match Nov. 19 at Smyrna High School, and the Salesianum side wrote both stories. On a cold, windy and rainy night in central Delaware, the top-ranked Sals scored a goal with the rain and wind at their backs, then played even better with the elements in their faces on the way to a 2-0 win over Appoquinimink.

The win gave Salesianum its seventh straight state championship, 13th in the past 15 years, and 16th overall. The Sals finished the season with a record of 16-1-1. The only loss came to Boulder (Colo.) in the second game of a two-day trip to Colorado, and the tie was against St. Benedict’s Prep (N.J.), one of the best teams in the country. Read more »

Two goals five minutes apart lift Charter past Archmere in boys soccer

Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT – Wilmington Charter junior Rhys Newcombe found something that worked on Nov. 1 at Archmere, so he went back to it, and his resulting two goals helped lift the Force past Archmere, 4-2, in a nonconference boys soccer matchup featuring two of the state’s better teams.

The teams were tied at a goal apiece at halftime, but after being dominated in possession time in the first half, Charter came out with something different in mind after intermission. The Force picked up a corner kick in the 50th minute, and Nolan Constantine sent the ball over the crease on the inbounds. There, Newcombe was waiting, and he headed the ball past Archmere keeper Blake Parker for the 2-1 lead. Read more »
