    WILMINGTON – Wilmington Charter built up a big halftime lead, then withstood a Delaware Military Academy rally in the third quarter on the way to a 39-35 win in girls basketball on Dec. 13. It was the Diamond State Athletic Conference opener for both teams. The Seahawks had a 9-4 lead after the first quarter, but their offense disappeared in the second. They did not score at all until three seconds remained, when Riley Sullivan made one of two free throws. The Force, meanwhile, scored 16 in the stanza, eight of those points coming from the foul line. Nia Anderson had six points in the second, one coming when she followed her own missed shot. Charter took a 22-10 lead into the locker room. DMA found their shooting touch in the third. After Anderson took an outlet pass and sped by the Seahawks' defense for a layup, Delaware Military went on the offensive. Ashley Thompson hit a 12-foot baseline jumper for the team's first field goal since late in the first quarter. When Kayla McOwen scored on a layup, the Seahawks had scored 11 straight and trailed by just three at 24-21. Eileen Griffith drained a huge three-pointer for the Force to end the run, and Charter led, 29-24, going to the final quarter. The Force had an opportunity in the fourth to put the game away at the foul line, but early misses kept the score close. The lead was three in the final minute, four straight misses from the line kept the Seahawks within one possession of a tie. Finally, with 5.2 seconds on the clock, Morgan Oliver made the back end of a two-shot foul, giving Charter the four-point lead. Anderson scored 12 to lead the Force, with 10 of those coming in the first half.

  • Anderson scores 18 to lead Force past Concord

    Posted 2018-12-12 05:42:40 by: Exec Exec

    BRANDYWINE HUNDRED – Nia Anderson drained four three-point shots on her way to a game-high 18 points as Wilmington Charter defeated Concord, 48-20, in girls basketball on Dec. 11. Anderson started her scoring early, showing off her long-distance prowess. With the score tied at 2, Anderson drained a three-pointer from the left corner, and she was fouled on the play. She made the free throw to complete the four-point play, and the Force never looked back. The next Charter bucket was another Anderson triple, and the lead was 13-4 after a quarter. The Raiders scored two quick field goals by Casey Best at the beginning of the second quarter, and Anderson returned to the court. That move paid dividends immediately, as she took an outlet pass and scampered three-quarters of the way down the court before hitting a layup. Anderson was fouled on the play and made the free-throw for the old-fashioned three-point play. Concord stayed close, however, and cut the halftime lead to 21-15. But it was all Force in the second half. Six different Charter players scored in the third, including Emma Brown, who had five. Two of those came on a pass from Anderson after a steal, and her other field goal were the result of a rebound of her own missed free throw late in the quarter. The margin was 19 as the fourth quarter began. Anderson was the only player to reach double figures; nine other Force players scored. Charter improved to 1-1 and will host Delaware Military Academy on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. Best had seven to lead Concord. The Raiders (1-3) travel to Middletown for a 4 p.m. tipoff on ...

  • Conrad makes eight threes in defeat of Newark Charter

    Posted 2018-12-08 05:24:31 by: Exec Exec

    NEWARK – Conrad took control with a five-point run in the third quarter and defeated Newark Charter, 52-45, in boys basketball on Dec. 7 in the Diamond State Tip-Off Classic at Newark Charter. The score was tied at 29 after a three-point shot by Newark Charter's Reed Burkhardt, but the Red Wolves responded with the next five points, prompting a Patriots timeout. Before the third quarter ended, Conrad guard Kyle Walker drained a three-pointer, and a pair of free throws were enough to keep the Red Wolves ahead, 39-38, entering the fourth quarter. The Patriots were missing one of their top offensive weapons, Perren Gyan, who sat out large chunks of the contest with foul trouble. His absence, plus a more deliberate offense from the Red Wolves as the game progressed, helped keep Newark Charter to a single field goal through the first seven minutes of the fourth. Conrad's Che' Jackson's hot shooting helped the visitors extend the lead. He hit two triples – the Red Wolves' only field goals of the quarter – to extend the lead to 45-40 before Conrad began shooting free throws. They made eight of 11 from the stripe in the final minutes to keep Newark Charter from mounting a comeback. Jeremy Coleman made five of those in six tries. Burkhardt hit another three, and Brett Lesher added another field goal, to cut the final margin to seven. The Red Wolves came out of the gates shooting well and breaking the Patriots' press with precision passing. They opened up a 17-7 lead, with every starter getting on the scoreboard, before a late triple from Burkhardt cut it to 17-10 after one. Newark Charter found the range in the second, making six field goals in the quarter, and the Patriots held Conrad to seven points to take a 26-24 lead into halftime. Coleman finished with 15 for Conrad, while Jackson had 14 and Thomas Wunder added 10. The Red Wolves (2-1) made eight from three-point range. They face Archmere on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the tournament championship ...

  • Howard girls put four in double figures in win over Concord

    Posted 2018-12-05 05:16:13 by: Exec Exec

    WILMINGTON – Howard's girls basketball team led Concord by just one point after one quarter of their game on Dec. 4, and a few minutes into the second quarter, it was tied at 17. But the Lady Wildcats scored the next eight points and 24 of the next 28 on their way to a 65-26 win in the season opener for Howard and the second game for Concord. Howard used its pressure defense to create numerous Raiders turnovers, which led to several easy field goals for the Lady Wildcats. At one point during the first quarter, Jaymail Hollis scored on layups on consecutive steals on Raiders inbounds plays. The Raiders stayed close in the first because Howard committed several turnovers of its own, and Casey Best was hot from the field, scoring eight points. The Lady Wildcats started to turn the tide with the score knotted at 17. They scored six points off Concord miscues, and Ronnasia Blatch-Huggins added two free throws. The Raiders scored four straight out of a timeout, but the Lady Wildcats closed out the half by scoring the final 10 points, including an old-fashioned three-point play from Blatch-Huggins to end the second quarter. Howard added four more points to open the second half before Concord freshman Hannah Dawson ended the run at 16. But the deficit was too great for the Raiders, who had just eight players dressed and were down to six after two fouled out. Hollis continued with her short game in the third, adding four more field goals. Janel Washington scored five points in the fourth quarter, including the only three-point shot of the afternoon, as the Lady Wildcats emptied their bench for much of the final eight minutes. Hollis led four players in double figures with 16. Blatch-Huggins had 14, Naleigha Wright added 12 and Washington 10 for the Lady Wildcats (1-0), who travel to Delcastle on Thursday at 5:15 p.m. Dawson led the Raiders with 13 in her second high school game. Best added 10. Concord (1-1) visits district foe Mount Pleasant on Thursday. ...

  • Lancaster scores 27 to lead Delcastle girls to win

    Posted 2018-12-01 05:27:42 by: Exec Exec

    GREENVILLE – Daqira Lancaster scored 27 points as Delcastle overcame an early deficit to defeat Wilmington Christian, 46-34, in the girls' basketball season opener for both teams on Nov. 30. The game was played at A.I. duPont High School as part of the annual Tiger Tip-Off Classic. Delcastle took an early 4-3 lead in the first quarter, but the Warriors scored the final eight points of the stanza to lead, 11-4, after one. Senior Rachael Iorii scored five of those for Wilmington Christian. The tide turned in the second quarter. Lancaster, a senior, scored off a steal to end the Warriors' run, and behind an aggressive defense, the Cougars steadily cut into the lead. A bank shot by freshman Emani Lucas-Davis put Delcastle back in front at 16-15. They led at the half by a 25-22 score. The Warriors' comeback efforts were hampered by foul trouble. Iorii had three in the first half, and senior Symphonie Deloatch picked up her fourth a minute into the third. Lancaster continued her hot shooting, and the Cougars took a 36-30 advantage into the final eight minutes. Lancaster made one of two free throws early on in the fourth, followed by the only three-point shot of the afternoon to extend the lead to 40-30, the largest to that point. Warriors sophomore Januarie Tate scored her team's first points of the quarter on two free throws, and Iorii scored on a layup after a steal to cut the lead to six, making it 40-34 with 4:06 to go in the contest. But Wilmington Christian went cold from the field after that, and the final six points of the day belonged to the Cougars, who were playing for the first time under new coach Jaquetta Harmon. The former Jaquetta May was an all-state player for the Cougars a decade ago, leading the team to the 2009 state title before playing at the University of Delaware. Senior Taylor Pittman had eight for Delcastle (1-0), and sophomore Taliyah Duval added seven. The Cougars will meet Tatnall at 4:45 p.m. Saturday at A.I. for the ...
