Frankford football coach Will Doggett did not hesitate when asked to name the catalyst of this year's squad. "Marquise Poston," he said. "As far as I'm concerned, he's the most valuable player of the league. He plays quarterback for us, he's our starting outside linebacker, and he'll even jump in there on special teams. " Saturday evening at Northeast, with another solid all-around effort from Poston, the Pioneers overcame a slow start and muffled George Washington, 30-3, to claim their second straight Public League Class AAAA championship.

Before Cardinal O'Hara's District 12 Class AAA field hockey final against George Washington, a referee walked over and pointed to a yellow line that surrounded the field, telling the players to stay behind it. That became more difficult than anticipated. With a lot to cheer, O'Hara's reserves watched the entire game with their feet on that line, and frequently crossing it, in a 10-0 win at Germantown in which Grace Boston scored five goals and the 100th in her career. Boston found out at halftime that she was approaching 100 goals.

The first round of the U.S. Open squash championships concluded Saturday at Drexel University with a lone American reaching the last 16 on a day that saw a few narrow escapes but only one major upset. Amanda Sobhy was the only one of seven U.S. players - four on the day - to progress, while New Zealand's Campbell Grayson was the sole qualifier to survive. Grayson opened with a straight-games upset over Switzerland's Nicolas Mueller, while James Willstrop and Nick Matthew, seeded two and three, were joined by Peter Barker and Joe Lee as England provided half the men's winners on the day. Egyptians Tarek Momen and Karim Abdel Gawad both recovered from deficits to claim their places in the final 16, while Germany's Simon Rosner earned a straight-games win over Julian Illingworth.

As he usually does, Dave Quinn spoke with his father Thursday before he teed off in a golf tournament. In this case, before the final round of the Philadelphia PGA Championship, Ed Quinn might have urged on his son a little stronger than he normally does. " 'You've got to win,' " Quinn said his 71-year-old father told him. He followed instructions, capturing the PGA of America's main event for Philadelphia Section club professionals by 2 strokes at White Manor Country Club in Malvern.

The result of Monday's game mattered little as Brooklawn's impressive run had already sealed the team's berth in Tuesday's championship game. The Brookers played Petaluma (Calif.) on Monday night in Shelby, N.C. The game ended too late for this edition. Brooklawn entered Monday 8-0 and has won all three of its games in Shelby. Tuesday's championship game will be the Brookers' second-straight appearance. They fell last year to New Orleans. Brooklawn clinched the berth Sunday behind the pitching of Tyler Mondile as well as the bats of Anthony Harrold and Pete Farlow.

MOSCOW - Brilliant baton-passing was the key to Team USA's world-record 40.82-second women's 4x100-meter relay triumph at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Hoping for a reprise on the concluding day of the 14th World Championships of Track and Field, a completely new American quartet got no such thing Sunday at Luzhniki Stadium. With a mistimed second exchange between second runner Alexandria Anderson of Austin, Texas, and English Gardner of Voorhees running third, the Americans lost critical ground and momentum to front-running Jamaica and appeared to have wound up third in 42.75, behind Jamaica's winning 41.29, a World Championships record, and France's silver-medal 42.73.

MOSCOW - Nia Ali, a former star at West Catholic, has run her way into the semifinals of the women's 100-meter hurdles at the 14th World Championships of Track and Field. Ali reached the Saturday semis with a 13.19-second run in the opening round Friday morning. But even though she came to Moscow owning the third best time in the world this year, a 12.48 at the USA Nationals in Des Moines, Iowa, seven weeks ago, her further progress here is clouded by injury. "I've got hamstring trouble," she said after her race at Luzhniki Stadium, site of the 1980 Olympic Games.

ORLANDO - As much as the Arena League fawns over Kurt Warner, the Super Bowl champion never won an ArenaBowl. Quirky stat? Maybe. But quarterbacks are defined by championships - no matter the level - as much as passing yards. And a championship is the one thing that has eluded Soul quarterback Dan Raudabaugh. Only 19 quarterbacks have won an ArenaBowl, according to the arenafan.com website. While it's certain that Raudabaugh and his Arizona Rattlers counterpart, Nick Davila, want a shot at playing in the NFL on Sundays, a win Saturday would be a defining moment in the arena football section of their playing resum├ęs.
