Springfield (Montco) beat Christopher Dock by a goal in their only regular-season meeting this year in field hockey. So, naturally, Spartans coach Linda Nixon was expecting another tight game when the two Bicentennial League foes met Tuesday in the opening round of the District 1 Class AA playoffs at Springfield. The first half Tuesday ended in a scoreless tie. But the Spartans, who won the BAL championship this season before they move back to the Suburban One League American Conference next year, struck for three goals in a five-minute stretch early in the second half and went on to a 4-0 victory.

"Two years ago we had a terrific team that went 14-6, but we graduated 10 seniors from that 1988 team and went 3-14 last year. "One of my goals for this team was to improve our hitting.

When Bristol's softball players score a few runs for pitcher Mary Wallick, they feel awfully confident, coach Mike Lally says. Wallick has never given them a reason not to be.

Because of their father and grandfather, New Hope-Solebury seniors Matt and Leo Massimino have been faithful followers of the Villanova men's basketball program. Their grandfather is Rollie Massimino, the longtime head coach for the Wildcats. And the boys' father, R.C., was a reserve guard for the Wildcats' 1985 national-championship squad. "To be connected to the team's history is something special," Leo Massimino said. "We take pride in it. People bring it up to us a lot. " Saturday at Villanova's Pavilion, the Massimino brothers combined for 25 points as the second-seeded Lions topped fourth-seeded Christopher Dock, 56-45, for their first PIAA District 1 Class AA title since 2001.
