Anthony Davis (Chester) became Widener's receptions leader, but it was the Pride's defense that forced seven turnovers and came up with the big plays when it needed it in a 19-7 season-opening win at Rowan. The senior all-American tallied seven receptions for 136 yards and now has 193 catches, eclipsing the mark of 188 held by Tyreak Saviour. Stacey Sunnerville, Jamal Goodman, and Sean Titus all had interceptions in the first 30 minutes. Sunnerville and Brandon Harper (Highland)

Last year, Villanova's football season began unraveling during the second week, and the Wildcats are hoping history won't repeat. A year ago, after losing to Boston College in the opener, Villanova fell at Fordham, 27-24. That win was an indication of how strong Fordham would be, as the Rams ended up earning a Football Championship Subdivision playoff berth, losing to eventual finalist Towson in the second round. Villanova, considered a potential national title contender in 2013, never really recovered from that loss and finished 6-5. Now, after coming off an emotionally draining, 27-26, double-overtime loss at Syracuse, the Wildcats host Fordham at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Villanova Stadium.

A year ago, Villanova opened its football season by giving host Boston College a major scare. The Wildcats led, 14-7, at halftime before losing, 24-14. Now, Villanova opens against another Atlantic Coast Conference Football Bowl Subdivision team, with Friday night's game at the Carrier Dome against Syracuse. Coach Andy Talley is hoping his underdog Wildcats will be competitive, but he is also looking to keep his players off the trainer's table against a much deeper Syracuse team.

THE CUBICLES in Sean Burke's office were quiet as the day was ending. You could faintly hear the middle-class Americans punching out after a long day's work, one by one. And as Burke was finishing what was going to be another boring day, in a dreary summer, he heard something. Bzzzzt. Bzzzt. His phone vibrated at his desk at 4:30 p.m. It was the Boston College football team. Burke careened from his workspace and minutes later, he was seen gleefully leaving the building. The Eagles had offered the walk-on junior linebacker-turned-fullback a scholarship.

IN THE HOURS that followed Boston College's season-ending loss, Johnny Gaudreau sat with his parents, Guy and Jane, in their South Jersey home to hash out the big decision. They listed pros and cons. They discussed differences between the college and professional levels. They talked about the increased pressure that comes along with the NHL. All conversations ceased around 3 a.m. yesterday. A verdict was reached. "He really wanted to go," his father said. Gaudreau, the ultra-skilled 20-year-old from Carneys Point, N.J., yesterday signed a contract with the Calgary Flames, forgoing his senior season at Boston College.

So what can they possibly do for an encore? Thursday's 2014 Frozen Four semifinals, which produced Saturday night's championship matchup of Minnesota and Union, were as entertaining and dramatic as anything March Madness can produce. Union held on for a 5-4 win over Boston College when a last-second Eagles shot bounded off its goalie's chest. And Minnesota topped that, scoring the winning shorthanded goal in their 2-1 triumph over North Dakota just before the final horn sounded.

There were 4.2 seconds remaining in Johnny Gaudreau's junior season, maybe in his collegiate career, and over that time he did everything his considerable hockey skills would allow to earn himself a few more precious ticks of the clock. Boston College was down by a goal to Union College in the Frozen Four's first semifinal game Thursday, a center-ice faceoff separating Union from Saturday's NCAA championship game, and everyone in the Wells Fargo Center knew that the Eagles had one chance to force overtime.

Poor Boston College will depart Philadelphia like a disappointed tourist, its Frozen Four visit here ruined by a pickpocket. Seconds after B.C. failed to tie Thursday's riveting national semifinal during a 5-minute, third-period advantage, Eagles defenseman Steve Santini was stripped of the puck near mid-ice. A subsequent breakaway shot by Union's Kevin Sullivan was stopped by B.C. goalie Thatcher Demko, but Mike Vecchione pushed home the rebound. That stunningly sudden turnaround - just four seconds after Union had killed off the major checking-from-behind penalty to Matt Hatch - gave the Dutchmen a 4-2 lead.

THEY HAD conceded it. To a man, the players speaking for Union College at Wednesday's media session said that in the program's first-ever appearance in a Frozen Four 2 years ago in Tampa, Fla., they were a little overwhelmed by the moment. How much that contributed to their loss in those national semifinals doesn't matter now, but the Dutchmen swore it would not happen again in Philadelphia. Still, a little more than 2 minutes into yesterday's semifinal against Boston College, Union looked as if it was again showing some big-game jitters On the Eagles' first shot of the game, Johnny Gaudreau scored to give his team an early lead.
