Marquis Seamon slipped his gleaming white helmet over the head of his 5-year-old cousin, Tyler, as his family snapped photos on a celebrating sideline. The Father Judge senior wore many hats of his own Saturday, and they all fit better than the one that bobbed around Tyler's shoulders after the Crusaders' 35-0 romp at Springside Chestnut Hill. Seamon, a running back and lockdown corner, contributed in all three phases as Father Judge (3-1) won its third straight nonleague game convincingly.

Matt Smith played the second half five minutes at a time. The senior right back for West Chester Rustin knew he couldn't think too far ahead with his team's opponent in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA state boys' soccer tournament, Father Judge, The Inquirer's top-ranked team in Southeastern Pennsylvania. So as the clock went from 40 minutes to 35 to 30, he breathed a little sigh of relief. Not too heavy a sigh, though - he had too much work to do. Five minutes closer to a win, he thought to himself.

Father Judge soccer coach John Dunlop turned around to his assistants and a bench full of substitutions. "We just put that play in yesterday," the longtime Crusaders coach said, his voice equal parts amazement and pride. It was six minutes into the second half against Roman Catholic, and Judge had just found the back of the net off a corner kick, breaking a scoreless tie. The header by Davis Habilaj was the only goal the Crusaders needed to defeat the Cahillites, 1-0, in a hard-fought Catholic League battle Wednesday night.

SATURDAY WAS a rough afternoon for Father Judge junior running back Yeedee Thaenrat. You try playing football after tweaking a muscle in your backside after your team's first play from scrimmage. Add a persistent downpour with occasional, chilly wind gusts, and you have the makings of a loooong day. And it could have been longer after Thaenrat's fourth-quarter fumble gave hope to the surging St. Anthony's squad from New York. "I was thinking to myself, 'I just lost the game for us,' " Thaenrat recalled.

When teams built on strong goalkeeping, solid defenses, and aggressive offenses collide in soccer, their game can easily end in a draw. Consider the Catholic League boys' matchup of rivals Archbishop Wood and Father Judge on Saturday. In a battle for sole possession of second place in the league, the host Crusaders tied Wood, 1-1, through two overtimes. "It was a typical Catholic League game, tough and hard-nosed," Father Judge coach John Dunlop said. "We came out the first 20 minutes trying to execute our game plan, which I thought we were doing.

A few minutes before 7 on Wednesday night, Vickson Krah lay flat on his stomach in Fox Gym. His head was at the center of a circle made by the Father Judge wrestlers splayed out on the mat around him. Krah's voice filled the room. "It's over!" he yelled, pounding the mat. "Over!" About an hour and a half later, the Crusaders had made his words into deeds. Father Judge beat La Salle, 38-27, to snap the five-time Catholic League champion's 50-match league winning streak. Judge had fallen to La Salle in the last two Catholic League finals.

NAVAN, Ireland - Father Judge's foray into Ireland for its football season opener proved to be a bit of a downer Friday, as the Crusaders never led in falling to Notre Dame Prep of Scottsdale, Ariz., 20-6. The game was part of a 12-team tournament run by Global Football Inc. Navan is about 30 miles outside Dublin. Luke Taffuri scored two rushing touchdowns for Notre Dame, including the first score. Judge blocked the extra-point attempt and trailed, 6-0. After a series of three-and-outs, Notre Dame quarterback Nick Duckworth fumbled when sacked by Judge's Kyle Douglas.

Joe Galasso asked everyone he knew to come to the Catholic League wrestling championship. But Father Judge's reigning state champion gave a warning with their invitations: They might not get a chance to see him wrestle. In the last two league finals, La Salle forfeited his weight class rather than face him. So when his 145-pound slot came up Wednesday night in a tied match, he hung back by the bench until a La Salle wrestler stepped on the mat. Galasso sprinted to meet him, and Judge's Fox Gym vibrated with anticipation.

Matt Hand pounded the strike zone, Jackson Parker flashed his speed in the outfield and on the base paths, and Council Rock North made Father Judge pay dearly for its sloppy fielding. The result Monday afternoon in a PIAA Class 4A first-round baseball playoff was a 2-1 victory for the Indians at sun-baked Neumann University. Matt Schram's squad advanced to the state quarterfinals for the second straight year even though it posted only two hits. Both of the runs against Judge's Dan Hammer, a hard-throwing righthander and Pittsburgh recruit, were unearned.

Olney Charter hopes to follow a major breakthrough with a solid run in the PIAA Class 4A state tournament. With Thursday's 5-4 triumph over Father Judge, the Trojans became the first Public League member to defeat a Catholic League school in a District 12 baseball final since the Catholic League joined the PIAA in 2008-09. "It was pretty awesome," Olney coach Dan Karlyn said. "That was one of our goals coming into the year, to show we could compete with and beat teams outside the Public League.

Christian Lutz's aggressive approach at the plate has helped put Father Judge in position to make a run at its first Catholic League title since 2000. "The first pitch, if it's there, I'm going for it," the junior designated hitter said. "It's usually worked pretty well for me. " Continuing his recent tear, Lutz went 3 for 4 from the cleanup spot as the visiting Crusaders downed Archbishop Wood, 7-1, in a first-place showdown Wednesday afternoon in Warminster. Lutz, a lefty hitter, slammed two homers to right field in last week's 3-2 triumph over La Salle at Ramp Playground.

Dan Hammer's plan is to continue his baseball career at the University of Pittsburgh. That could change if a major-league organization thinks enough of the Father Judge pitcher to select him in the first-year player draft in June and make an irresistible financial offer. Crusaders first-year manager Kenny Devenney said scouts from the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, and Kansas City Royals have been keeping tabs on the hard-throwing senior righthander. For now, Hammer, also a shortstop, is focused on trying to help lead Judge to its first Catholic League title since 2000.

Father Judge High School sits on a peninsula created by a dramatic northwest turn of the Pennypack Creek, as if the stream suddenly remembered from a couple of blocks away that it owed Frankford Avenue money. The campus fronts Solly Avenue on the south bank of the Pennypack. North and west of the Pennypack, the Northeast is infested with cul-de-sacs and loop streets that lead back onto themselves like a child's concentric circle puzzle. Only a cop or a fireman could navigate those streets, and guess who lives there?

Mariana Bracetti freshman Tatyana Ortiz may have inadvertently wrestled a Catholic League rule to its knees. A 5-foot-4, 106-pound freshman wrestler, she is scheduled to compete Saturday in the District 12 Class AAA individual tournament at Archbishop Carroll High. Ortiz, the eighth seed, is slated to face top-seeded Father Judge senior Tim McCall, who is 28-7 this season and has won 126 career matches but has never qualified for the PIAA state tournament. However, according to a 2014 rule by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg, McCall - and any other boy in the state competing against a girl - would have to forfeit the match because boys are not permitted to wrestle girls.

As loud as you may knock, there is no guarantee that a locked door will open. The door to the PIAA wrestling tournament is as formidable as any in high school athletics, and it's got a big old lock. Even the most disciplined competitors have been stopped short in their pursuit of the coveted achievement. After being denied three times, Father Judge's Tim McCall has one last chance to find the key. "Losing hurts a lot for me," said McCall, a senior. "The hardest part is right after . . . because you think, 'I've worked so hard and I didn't really get what I wanted out of it,' but then in the coming weeks and coming months you just kind of get back into training and focusing and trying to prepare yourself for next year.

Archbishop Wood experienced a major slump last month while dropping five straight Catholic League games. One of those setbacks came on the road against Father Judge. The Vikings returned to Mayfair on Wednesday night for a first-round playoff against the Crusaders, dominated on both ends from the start, and cruised to a 64-42 triumph in determined fashion. "We played about as bad as we could have the first game," Wood senior floor general Tommy Funk said. "We came here with a chip on our shoulder, wanting badly to get payback.

Dean Jakeman grew up around the corner from Archbishop Wood, but he never envisioned himself attending the school. Jakeman - now a junior at Father Judge - said he instead always felt a "personal rivalry" with Wood. "Wood has always been in the back of my head because I grew up 30 seconds from here, I looked at this school every day, and then I ended up going to Judge when I moved to Philly in eighth grade," Jakeman said. "But I always had something out for Wood. I always wanted to get them.
