Garza named to Delmarva Cup All-Tournament team, Cruz gets first assist
While the Wesley College men’s soccer team went 0-2 in losses to Randolph-Macon and Hamden-Sydney during the Delmarva Cup Tournament last weekend, sophomore midfielder Danny Garza was still named to the Delmarva Cup All-Tournament team, along with Wesley defender Jack Farlow, after standout performances.
After joining fellow members of the Indian River High School 2013 state championship team Garza and sophomore defender Sean Whelen at Wesley this season, freshman forward Luis Cruz managed his first career NCAA assist in the matchup against Randolph-Macon on Saturday, Sept. 10.
It was the 40th minute when Cruz stole a pass from a Yellow Jacket defender and played a through ball up the middle to Sean Bucior, to put the Wolverines up 1-0 just before the half.
The Wolverines got back on track on Saturday, Sept. 17, with a 4-0 win over Cairn to improve to 2-2-2 on the season. They were scheduled to take on Washington College on Wednesday, Sept. 21, (after Coastal Point press time), before hitting the road to face Frostburg on Saturday, Sept. 24.
Interboro (Pa.) 20, Sussex Central 16 (football)
The Sussex Central High School football team dropped to 1-1 on the season with an out-of-state 20-16 loss to Interboro High School from Pennsylvania on Friday, Sept. 16.
Interboro struck first in the matchup, on a touchdown through the air and missed extra point to go up 6-0. However, the Golden Knights answered on a 5-yard run from senior fullback Justin Jones to take a 7-6 lead.
Then, trailing 13-10 at the half and 20-10 nearing the end of regulation, Central would cut the deficit to 20-16 after senior defensive tackle Myles Vernet recovered a fumble and senior running back Kendrique Nocks punched in a goal-line score on the ensuing drive.
With time running out, however, it would be too little too late as the Golden Knights suffered their first loss on the season.
Central will look to bounce back on Friday, Sept. 23, when they take on Queen Anne’s County High School from Maryland at home at 7 p.m.
Check-Guzman tallies assist, Wesley wins third straight
The Wesley College women’s soccer won their third straight game of the season in a 3-0 home victory over Lehman on Saturday, Sept. 17, to improve to 4-2.
While current Wesley freshman midfielder and former Indian River High School standout Aline Check-Guzman got a shot on goal during that matchup, she managed to tack on her third assist of the season in the Wolverines’ 2-0 win at Rosemont on Wednesday, Sept. 14.
In the 67th minute of that game, Check-Guzman took the ball out of the back and found freshman Aleya Cummings for a score that put Wesley up 2-0.
The Wolverines were scheduled to take on Hood College at home on Wednesday, Sept. 21, (after Coastal Point press time), before heading to Frostburg on Saturday, Sept. 24, at 2 p.m.
Sussex Central 3, Caesar Rodney 2 (boys’ soccer)
The Sussex Central boys’ soccer team started the season 2-0, with a 3-2 win over Caesar Rodney on Thursday, Sept. 15.
Freshman Juan Perez got the Golden Knights on the board first, on a goal assisted by junior Chris Ramirez in the 19th minute. Then, senior Dalendy Duperville found the net in the 25th minute, with an assist by junior Yunior Cruz, and Cruz set up Central’s third and final score in the second half, finding sophomore Yordan Morales on a goal that would prove to be the difference in the game.
Sophomore keeper Watson Dorsinvil had six saves for the Golden Knights.
Sussex Central had not taken down the Riders in boys’ soccer since prior to the 2009 season.
