Fall Sports: A roundup of action from October 10

NEW CASTLE — Wilmington built a 3-0 lead and hung on for a 3-2 District 10, Region 2-AA boys soccer victory over Hickory.

Ryan DiLullo scored the Greyhounds’ third goal with 30 minutes left to play. But the visiting Hornets cut the deficit to one with 15 minutes remaining.

“The first 50 minutes we played some of the best soccer I’ve seen of us play,” Wilmington coach Christian Davoli said. “Then the last 30 minutes we started losing confidence.

“Hickory was playing hard. To give up the two goals and drop the level of play is not our style. I wasn’t a big fan of how we finished. But a win is a win and that’s a huge win for us.”

Travis Brumbaugh and Ian Behm scored one goal apiece for the Greyhounds (6-2, 9-3). Brumbaugh assisted on two goals as well.

Derek Nichols saved six shots in goal to earn the win.

Wilmington held a 2-0 advantage at the break.

Lady Spartans prevail


Laurel moved another step closer to securing a postseason berth.

The Lady Spartans knocked off visiting Western Beaver 25-14, 25-9, 25-14 in a WPIAL Section 3-A contest.

The win propels Laurel (7-3 section, 10-5 overall) to within a game of clinching a WPIAL playoff berth. The Lady Spartans can secure that postseason bid with a win at Union on Tuesday.

“I like the position we’re in,” said first-year Laurel coach Joe Maslyk. “You want the destiny in your own hands.”

Mackenzie Mraz paced the Lady Spartans with 12 points, eight kills and six digs, while Rachael Baker chipped in with 10 points, 11 kills and six digs.

Kristan Fedrizzi followed with 10 points, four aces and five digs.

“I thought we came out and played really well,” Maslyk said. “We served the ball very well and executed on offense better.

“I thought we played better than we have the last couple of weeks.”

Laurel won the JV match 25-11, 25-8.

Emily Gibson garnered 14 points and 10 aces for the Lady Spartans and Paige Covelli collected 10 points and three aces.

Shelby Miles added six kills.
