Not every game-winning rally is going to feature a crackling line drives and clutch hits. Sometimes, a team has to grind away and find a way. That's what Bishop Eustace senior first baseman Dan Marano did in the top of the seventh inning of Sunday's Ralph Shaw Classic championship baseball game against host Audubon. Behind by 0-2 in the count with the bases loaded and two outs, Marano battled back to work a walk to drive in the winning run in Bishop Eustace's 4-3 victory before a large crowd on a sunny afternoon at Hank Greenberg Field.

Hello there Liz, NFL Films commercial producer by day, music fan by night, walked into the Pontiac Grille on South Street to see her buddy Norm's band, Live Not On Evil. She worked her way to the front of the crowd, where she knew Norm's wife, Missi, would be. Missi smiled, and gestured to the man standing with her. "Dave and Liz, I want you to meet each other. " That was March 2004, when a bunch of Philly and Jersey metal and hair bands from the late '80s and early '90s were reassembling for a reunion, including Without Warning, the one Dave played drums for. Liz and Dave, a field manager for Allan A. Myers Contractors of Worchester, already vaguely knew of each other from the band reunion website.

The Audubon girls' basketball team has quietly elevated its program with some impressive individual and team achievements. And of course, one has led to the other. Before this season, the Green Wave hadn't had a 1,000-point scorer since Nicole Cannon in 2001. Then, in a span of less than two weeks, seniors Valerie Pineiro and Maddie Lord accomplished the feat. "It's pretty cool," said Pineiro, who will attend La Salle on a softball scholarship. Lord will cherish not only her milestone, but also how it was achieved.

Maddie Lord became the latest to score her 1,000th point, doing so Monday in a 59-32 win over visiting Lindenwold. Lord needed 12 points entering the Colonial Conference game. She reached the mark in style. Her sister, Erica, fed her a bounce pass on a two-on-one break, and Lord finished a righthanded layup.

The teams played to a scoreless draw through 100 minutes of regulation and overtime, and Gateway sophomore MacKell Schultes settled matters by scoring the winning penalty kick to give the Gators a 3-2 margin.
