Dan McDonald didn't wait for coach Joe Krantz to say who should take the penalty kick. The senior midfielder for the Archbishop Wood boys' soccer team didn't wait for anyone to volunteer, either. No. 7 ran right up to the ball, picked it up, and placed it on the mark 12 yards from the net. He was going to take it. McDonald didn't miss, and his goal with 13 minutes remaining in the Catholic League quarterfinal against St. Joseph's Prep put the Vikings over the top, 2-1, Tuesday night at Veterans Field in Southampton.

ANTHONY RUSSO threw praise like touchdown passes yesterday when asked about his record-tying performance last weekend against Bonner-Prendergast High. The 6-4, 215-pound Archbishop Wood quarterback gushed about his receiving corps, offensive line, running backs and coaches, without truly acknowledging what he had accomplished. Not only did his seven touchdown passes - all in the first half - tie a city record and earn Russo our latest Player of the Week award, but, in his estimation, they also earned him something more valuable - the chance to do more.

It's Week 8 of the football season and - no surprise - a number of contests have league-title implications. At or near the top of the list is Friday night's Central League showdown between Garnet Valley, ranked 14th in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, and No. 24 Springfield (Delco). The Jaguars (6-1 overall, 6-0 league) are trying for their third outright championship in the last four seasons. Host Springfield (7-0, 6-0) seeks its first crown since 1994. The big subplot in this one is the absence of Garnet Valley's Mike Ricci.

Florida transfer Colin Thompson was on the field for a number of plays on Saturday. The former Archbishop Wood tight end, who made his debut for Temple against Connecticut two weeks ago, caught his first career pass as a member of the Owls. "It was kind of ironic because I fumbled," said Thompson, who fumbled the ball out of bounds. "I fumbled my first catch in high school. But it was great to get the first catch and to get out there. It was nice to go out there and hit somebody and get into a game.

JIMMY HERRON might be the city's best current wide receiver who won't play college football. Truthfully, that's because the 6-1, 185-pound senior is also a dynamic centerfielder who's headed to Duke when his days at La Salle High are over. When that time comes, Herron could stake a claim as the city's best pass catcher - ever. Well, at least when it comes to catching touchdowns, nobody has done it more often. One thing for sure, Herron is our latest Player of the Week. The city's all-time leader in touchdown receptions added four more in the Explorers' 35-31, come-from-behind shocker against previously undefeated Archbishop Wood.

Late in Week 4, when starting quarterback Connor O'Keefe went down with an injury and backup Matt Szczypiorski was unavailable for the same reason, Central Bucks East had no choice but to hand the reins to an emergency signal-caller. With that, Jack Lamb, previously a full-time inside linebacker and part-time running back for the Patriots, went under center for the first time since he was an eighth-grader at Holicong Middle School. "I was a little bit rusty at first, but I'm improving with each week," the 6-foot, 200-pound junior said.

Marissa Sheva tacked on another race to her long list of career wins on Saturday. The Pennridge senior took first in the Paul Short Run, hosted by Lehigh University, in a battle. She earned a time of 17 minutes, 34 seconds, only two seconds away from her closest opponent. Pennsbury's Olivia Sargent came in third at 17:52, and the Falcons topped Cardinal O'Hara for first overall team. Gettysburg Invitational. Coatesville's Brooke Hutton carried her team to a first-place finish at Gettysburg Area High School.

When teams built on strong goalkeeping, solid defenses, and aggressive offenses collide in soccer, their game can easily end in a draw. Consider the Catholic League boys' matchup of rivals Archbishop Wood and Father Judge on Saturday. In a battle for sole possession of second place in the league, the host Crusaders tied Wood, 1-1, through two overtimes. "It was a typical Catholic League game, tough and hard-nosed," Father Judge coach John Dunlop said. "We came out the first 20 minutes trying to execute our game plan, which I thought we were doing.

THE CITY'S all-time leader in receiving touchdowns was busy last night. La Salle High senior Jimmy Herron caught four more touchdowns as the Explorers overcame a 17-point, third-quarter deficit to stun previously unbeaten Archbishop Wood, 35-31, before an overflow crowd at William Tennent High. He now has 33 career receiving TDs. However, Herron isn't an all-he-does-is-catch-touchdowns wideout. The 6-1, 185-pound defensive back also recovered a late fumble and broke up Wood's last gasp on a fourth-and-15 from the 50 with under a minute remaining.

Archbishop Wood, with 333 rushing yards, led comfortably by 17 points late in the third quarter Friday night in its showdown against La Salle. That's when a near-certain win began to evaporate. The resilient Explorers, fueled by the spectacular play of Jimmy Herron and two turnovers, flipped the switch, scored three times in the final 12 minutes, and emerged with a 35-31 victory before an overflow crowd at William Tennent. "It's just great," La Salle coach Drew Gordon said while his players celebrated the improbable triumph.
