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.

"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.

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.

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.
