TOMS RIVER, N.J. - Craig Mensinger called it "mystifying. " His Ocean City team was "super confident" entering the Group 3 state championship game Saturday against Northern Highlands. The Red Raiders had won 14 of 15. They had ace Sean Mooney on the mound. They were playing a team with 10 losses. They were on the brink of the first state title in the history of the program. But when Mooney allowed his first two earned runs of the season in the first inning, thanks to a bloop, an opposite-field double, and a windblown double, the Red Raiders never recovered.

To hear Monica Borzillo tell it, nothing was going to stop Conestoga from winning the PIAA girls' lacrosse championship this time. Saturday morning at West Chester East, the Lady Pioneers, who finished runner-up last season, could not be denied. Conestoga ran away from Radnor, 18-7, to claim its first girls' lacrosse state championship. "We finished the season!" said Borzillo, who coupled four goals with eight assists. "Our whole goal this year was to get back here and win it. Last year, we had it ripped from us by Garnet Valley.

Even though he didn't win a single tournament on the PGA Tour, Brandt Jobe enjoyed a decent career there, winning more than $9 million. This year, he began a new career on the PGA Tour Champions, where he's found that most of his former colleagues from the regular tour haven't slowed down a bit. One of those guys is Bernhard Langer, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame and the leading money winner on the 2016 tour who has won 27 Champions events,...

Colin Montgomerie was filled with love Thursday for the Wissahickon course of the Philadelphia Cricket Club after opening the Constellation Senior Players Championship with an even-par 70 in gusty winds. "It's so much of a challenge where par every hole means something," he said. "It feels good. It feels great. I love it because this is what majors should be. You should feel like it's a major, and it is. Love it . . . absolutely love it. " Montgomerie, who finished as runnerup five times in major championships before he reached the PGA Tour Champions, showed the type of steady play that has been his trademark - two birdies, two bogeys and 14 pars, hitting 11 fairways and 14 greens.

The temperature was in the mid-50s and the wind was howling Thursday when Jay Don Blake teed off at 7:30 a.m. in the first group of the Constellation Senior Players Championship, wondering what havoc the weather was going to create in the opening round of the PGA Tour Champions major. "We had about three, four holes right in a row just dead into the wind and it was cold, ball was going nowhere," Blake said. "It was just kind of survival. " Blake somehow survived to the tune of a 2-under 68 over the Wissahickon course at the Philadelphia Cricket Club and, to his surprise, saw that score hold up the entire day, allowing him to take a 1-stroke lead over four players.

Members at the Philadelphia Cricket Club and amateur players who are accustomed to the layout of the club's Wissahickon course are going to need a map to find the way the course is configured for the Constellation Senior Players Championship. Officials of the event, the third major of the season on the PGA Tour Champions, have reshuffled all the holes to where the number of every tournament hole will be different than its number for regular member play. For instance, because of the need to come up with maximum space for corporate tents and skyboxes, the 18th hole for the tournament will be what normally is the fourth hole for regular play at the club.

The Collegiate Rugby Championship men's division got off to a dramatic start on the first day of pool play Saturday at Talen Energy Stadium. All 24 teams played three matches each, ranging from physical contests to all-out brawls on an entertaining day of rugby sevens action.

The 19-15 final was a statement.

Sometimes defeat can be the best teacher of success. Conestoga, however, hadn't tasted such bitterness much of this lacrosse season. That is until the Lady Pioneers fell in the District 1 playoffs to eventual district champion Radnor. Now, Conestoga (18-1) hopes its only blemish this season catapults the squad to a state championship. "We all got fired up after it," said senior Sondra Dickey. "I think that was our motivation to get better and not be satisfied. " Saturday at 11 a.m. at Avon Grove, the Lady Pioneers, the 5th seed from District 1, will face Kennard Dale (23-1)
