Boys Soccer: Dolinsky’s goal all University needs in non-league win over Branson

By Matthew Snyder

University High School sophomore midfielder Adam Dolinsky twice found himself open on the left wing during the first five minutes of the second half in Monday’s non-league matchup against Branson on Friday at the Crocker Amazon Soccer Fields, but his teammates failed to pick him out with a pass on both occasions.

Then in the 46th minute, junior forward Sam Reyes won possession in the center of the field and, after steering two defenders along with him, Reyes nudged a pass with the outside of his right foot into the path of Dolinsky, who finally made his diagonal run in on goal.

Dolinsky raced onto the pass and fired an unstoppable shot past Branson goalkeeper Ben Kullavanijaya, who could do nothing but watch it fly into the top-left corner.

That goal proved to be all University would need in an impressive 1-0 non-league victory that provided a small measure of revenge for their 2-0 loss to the Bulls in last season’s North Coast Section Division II semifinals.

Boys Basketball: Newly-healthy St. Ignatius drops Branson in Sand Dune opener

By Bonta Hill

St. Ignatius boys basketball head coach Tim Reardon has spent most of the non-league season trying to get his team healthy.

With 13 players now in uniform, including standout junior wingman Stephen Domingo and senior forward Antonio Aguliar, Reardon liked what he saw from his team on Tuesday night.

In the first round of the Leo LaRocca Sand Dune Classic, the Wildcats held visiting Branson of Ross to 35 percent shooting from the floor and cruised to a 54-31 win.
