For the third straight week, a Bishop Eustace Prep football opponent ran into a wall. Jeff Wall. A brick wall probably wouldn't have caused as much pain. Wall, a senior two-way back, scored three touchdowns - including an 18- yarder after he made a spectacular one-handed grab - and gained 178 yards on 19 carries last night, leading Eustace to a 43-14 nonleague win at Highland. In three games, Wall (6 feet, 185 pounds) has scored eight touchdowns and gained 513 yards on 41 carries, an alarming average of 12.5 yards per attempt.

One minute they were up, the next minute they were down. At the end, when it counted most, the girls from Bishop Eustace Prep fell short. The Crusaders dropped a 54-50 decision to Immaculata of Somerville yesterday in the NJSIAA Parochial B girls' basketball championship game at Brookdale Community College. "We've accomplished an awful lot this year; by no means do we have to hang our heads over one game," Eustace coach Jackie Trakimas said. "In a state championship game, you always have two quality teams.

The field house at Bishop Eustace Prep had all but cleared out, and Eustace head coach Bob Falconiero stood near the emblem at center court with a look that betrayed his disappointment. "We're really not looking for moral victories," Falconiero said. "We're looking for victories. " Eustace (8-2), ranked No. 5 in the Daily News South Jersey Top 10, couldn't hold on to a six-point third-quarter lead as No. 2 Camden Catholic beat the Crusaders, 53-50, last night in front of a packed house in an Olympic Conference contest.

The script was hauntingly familiar for Bishop Eustace Prep. The Crusaders, playing their second state Parochial B baseball championship game in the last three years, once again had a late-inning lead disappear largely due to the heroics of a highly touted major-league draft choice. Eustace, which led, 1-0, going into the seventh inning, dropped a 4-1 eight-inning affair yesterday to Marist in the Parochial B state title game at Princeton University. The Crusaders, No. 3 in The Inquirer's South Jersey ratings, fell to 22-6, while Marist improved to 16-6-1 in winning its first state baseball title.

If Bishop Eustace Prep is going to win the fourth NJSIAA Parochial B state baseball championship in school history, it will have to defeat the best high school pitcher in America tomorrow afternoon. Eustace will be facing Willie Banks, the hard-throwing righthander from St. Anthony High of Jersey City, in the 3:30 showdown at Princeton University. Banks, the third player selected in last week's major-league, amateur free- agent draft, has had his fastball consistently clocked in the 88-94 m.p.h range.

For a team that has scored 42 goals in 11 games this season, the field hockey squad from Bishop Eustace Prep is playing very good defense. The defense has been so good that Crusaders coach Jeanne Kline believes her team's offensive unit is being fueled by the all-over-the-field play of the defenders. With such a team effort, it's no wonder that Eustace has run its record to 9-2 and earned the No. 9 spot in The Inquirer's South Jersey Top 10. Of the Crusaders' victories, seven have been by shutout, and the team has given up only seven goals on the year.

With two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning of yesterday's NJSIAA Parochial B state championship game, Bishop Eustace Prep righthander Joe Achey was working on a brilliant one-hitter. Eustace, which held a 2-1 lead at the time, was working on one of the most startling upsets in the 17-year history of the state finals. "For six innings, we were living a dream," said Eustace coach Joe Galliera after the 150 minutes of riveting suspense was over. "I guess we woke up an inning early.

For the second straight year, Haddonfield (Group 2) and Bishop Eustace Prep (Non-Public B) have won Shop-Rite Cups in their respective New Jersey athletic sections, the NJSIAA announced yesterday. The state-wide competition, sponsored by the supermarket, awards points primarily on a 10-8-5-5 basis for schools that finish first, second, third or fourth in each sport's state playoffs. In addition, a school receives three bonus points if it was "disqualification-free" in the season it placed in the state championship competition.

Facing a 10-point deficit with about five minutes to play yesterday, Bishop Eustace Prep employed a suffocating full-court press. And it left Paul VI gasping - and with its first loss of the season. Eustace, with its turnover-causing press making the difference, went on a 22-7 run in the last five minutes and jolted Paul VI, 67-62, in an opening- round game in the 13th annual Cherry Hill East Holiday Classic at Cherry Hill East High. Eustace (4-1) moved into tomorrow's 7:30 p.m. semifinal against Cherry Hill East, which recorded a stunning, 43-40 victory over Willingboro last night.

The Bishop Eustace girl's basketball team yesterday gave head coach Annette Reiter the perfect birthday present - its best performance of the year.

Bishop Eustace Prep and Gloucester Catholic High were well-represented Friday on the second day of the Major League Baseball draft, as two graduates from each school were selected. Righthander Zac Gallen was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the third round with the 106th pick. The Bishop Eustace graduate and North Carolina junior had a 2.68 ERA in 902/3 innings for the Tar Heels this season. Another Eustace graduate, Devin Smeltzer, was taken in the fifth round, 161st overall, by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

To Devin Smeltzer, the 140th pitch felt like the first. "I had no idea my pitch count was that high," Smeltzer said. "I felt great. " Smeltzer, a sophomore left-handed pitcher at San Jacinto (Texas) Community College, threw 140 pitches in an 8-1 win over Chattahoochee (Ala.) Valley in the junior college national semifinals June 3. He struck out 20. He said he felt "great" the next day. The overpowering performance highlighted Smeltzer's development in the two years since his graduation from Bishop Eustace and explained why he's such an intriguing professional prospect on the verge of the major-league baseball draft, which is set for Thursday through Saturday.

Seneca's Tyver Butler had spent a bit of time as a midfielder before high school, and he had a cup of coffee at the position as a sophomore. By nature, though, he's an attack. So his display over the last three games after switching to center midfield late in his senior season - 10 goals, including four in a 13-3 win over visiting Bishop Eustace on Friday night - is as much a testament to his guts as it is to his athleticism. "He actually came to me about this," said Seneca coach Rob Davidson.

An opportunity arose for Izzy Kelly this season with the Bishop Eustace softball team, and she has taken advantage of it. With pitcher Rachael Romer graduating in 2015, Kelly knew her role on the mound would expand, and the sophomore has emerged as the go-to hurler, according to coach Kat Dreitlein. "She's doing a great job for us on the mound, plus she's having great at-bats. She's getting on base, helping herself out," Dreitlein said. "What else could you really ask for?" Kelly provides Bishop Eustace (9-3)

Sometimes there are different ways to get things done. But make no mistake, when it comes to the Bishop Eustace baseball team, the results are usually favorable. This has long been one of the best programs in South Jersey, but this year, veteran coach Sam Tropiano lacked an abundance of what has carried the program over the years - seniors. This year, there are only six seniors on the roster, and one of them, infielder-outfielder Kevin Lammers, is out for the year with a back injury.

For Bishop Eustace catchers, hitting is optional. Defense and leadership are mandatory. That's fine with Crusaders senior catcher Nate Steele. He has embraced his role for a young team with a staff of inexperienced pitchers. "As a catcher, that's how it works at Eustace," Steele said. Bishop Eustace coach Sam Tropiano "doesn't even care about how much you hit. You have to be a leader. " Steele batted a respectable .293 with seven doubles, two homers and 19 RBIs as a junior for a team that won 25 games and finished in the No. 1 spot in the Inquirer's Top 25. Steele had two of those RBIs in Bishop Eustace's victory over Eastern in the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic championship game.
