A handcuffed Oklahoma trucker whose tractor-trailer was hijacked at a Pennsylvania Turnpike rest stop yesterday managed to grab the hijacker's gun about an hour later and fired four shots that sent the man fleeing, police said. Charles Bartlow, 30, of Sand Springs, Okla., told police that he was returning to his rig after an afternoon break at a rest stop west of the Fort Washington interchange when he found a man in the bunk at the back of the truck's cab. The man pointed a revolver at Bartlow's face, police said.

It took them three extra minutes to do it, but the Frankford Pioneers overcame imposing St. Nicholas of Tolentine last night with a 78-74 overtime victory in the semifinals of the Seagull Classic at St. Joseph's University. Tolentine, a nationally acclaimed school in the Bronx, rebounded from an eight-point deficit late in the fourth quarter to tie the score at 70-70 at the end of regulation. Junior forward Brian Reese gave the Wildcats life and extended the game to overtime when he hit a three-point shot from the left corner with 15 seconds to play.

Most brides will tell you that at least one thing goes wrong at every wedding - the groom fumbles over his vows, the wrong flowers are delivered, the cake collapses, the band gets lost or the power at the reception hall goes out. For Jody Blank of Northeast Philadelphia, the problem arose after the wedding ceremony and the reception had gone virtually without a hitch, and she had begun preparing for her honeymoon. That was when she discovered that her wallet and airline tickets to Florida had been stolen from her purse, Lower Moreland police said.

Souderton's reputation preceded it against Wissahickon on Friday night, and Nate Overholt took full advantage of it. The junior quarterback threw for 209 yards and three touchdowns on 5-for-5 passing, utilizing the play fake to perfection in a 31-6 win. All of Overholt's completions and yardage came in the first half, when the Indians (3-1) ran for only 23 yards on eight rushes. He added a 79-yard touchdown run for good measure in the third quarter. Wissahickon (1-2) crowded the line of scrimmage to stop Souderton's running, bringing both safeties within five yards of the line of scrimmage.

The only way they would become ominous giants is by peering in a fun-house mirror. No member of the Chester Clippers' starting lineup will ever win a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar look-alike contest. "They talk about a three-guard set - well, we have a four-guard offense and one mini-forward," Chester coach Alonzo Lewis said with a smile. The Clippers, however, have made out quite well this season with their merry bunch of slick, quick tricksters. Tuesday night, Chester (24-2) made it to tomorrow's District 1 Class AAAA championship game against Coatesville by blazing past Abington, 78-71, in a blistering semifinal game at the Palestra.

An armed robbery at a Moorestown fast-food restaurant was foiled late Monday when a drive-through customer became impatient, banged on a window, and inadvertently scared away the gunman, police said. An employee at the McDonald's on West Camden Avenue was taking out trash shortly before midnight when a gunman accosted him, Moorestown Police Lt. Frank Fullerton said. After forcing the employee back inside at gunpoint, the man ordered the manager to open the safe, Fullerton said.

It wasn't hard for Rage coach Lisa Boyer to figure out why her team lost to Columbus, 80-69, in front of a season-high 6,108 fans in an American Basketball League game at the Palestra last night. "We were a different team in the first half and they were a different team in the second," Boyer said matter-of-factly. The Rage, ahead 41-30 at the half, saw the lead and the game's momentum slip away in the second half when the Quest rallied to take a 60-52 third-quarter lead. Columbus's run was sparked by Shannon Johnson, who scored 12 of her 14 points in the third quarter.

A head butt in Round 6 did the most visible damage to a bloody-faced Mike Stewart last night in the main event at the New Alhambra. But Stewart was hurt the most when unheralded opponent Enrique Colin of Guasave, Mexico, switched to southpaw in Round 4 and did the real harm with his fists. Colin came out fast from the start and took a majority decision over Stewart, the crowd favorite from New Castle, Del. With the loss, the 29-year-old Stewart dropped to 41-6-2. Colin improved to 22-3-3.

PITTSBURGH - Police here were searching for two young would-be carjackers who were foiled by a clutch. Police have been looking for the pair since Tuesday night, when one of them tapped on a driver's side window with a gun and signaled their intention. The two, wearing ski masks and black hoodies, ordered the 28-year-old driver out of his Subaru Forester and demanded money. When the victim said he had none, they demanded his cellphone and car keys. Police spokeswoman Emily Schaffer says when the victim told the suspect that the Subaru had a manual transmission the perpetrators decided they didn't want it and ran away.

It's not yet the Fifth of November, but Arden Theatre Company still remembers England's Gunpowder Plot, via Bill Cain's 2009 drama Equivocation . Cain, a Jesuit priest, explores the entanglements among Shakespeare - here tagged with an alternate spelling of his name, Shagspeare - King James I, Sir Robert Cecil, and the nature of playwriting, among other topics crammed into a play of Shakespearean proportions. Of course, there's only one Shakespeare (or is there? Cain also winks at that question a few times)

For the second straight year, the Union saw their run at the franchise's first trophy in its six-year existence end in frustrating fashion. Jordi Quintilla connected on the winner Wednesday night as Sporting Kansas City captured the penalty kick segment, 7-6, after the teams played to a 1-1 draw through 120 minutes in the U.S Open Cup final before 14,463 at PPL Park. Last year, the Union suffered a 3-1 loss in extra time to the visiting Seattle Sounders in the Open Cup final.

The duck is dead. Deflated. Done. After three frenzied days of working to repair and reinflate the world's largest known rubber ducky for the Tall Ships Festival, crews gave up on her Sunday, saying it was time to send the badly wounded waterfowl to the "duck doctor. " Mama Duck's entourage dashed revelers' hopes for resuscitation just hours before Sunday's fireworks extravaganza on the Delaware River waterfront in Camden and Philadelphia. The 61-foot-tall nylon creation was to have been a major draw to the four-day festival but suffered grave wounds on Day 1 and was nowhere to be seen for most of the weekend.

WE USED to think there was no flopping in baseball. But what we saw Saturday in Washington was worthy of the NBA and NHL. We're talking about when the Pirates' Jose Tabata dropped his well-protected left elbow into the inside slider from the Nationals' Max Scherzer and let the pitch tick off the elbow guard. Nats catcher Wilson Ramos said Tabata's elbow was in the strike zone. But take your base. And take the perfect game, while you're at it. Scherzer was one strike from a perfecto at the time and "settled" for a no-hitter - fresh on the heels of a one-hitter.

WE KNEW we were being naïve when we imagined that City Council would come back from the last week's campaigning and roll up its sleeves to address the hard issues of school funding in Philadelphia. Any one of the issues would have been fine: how to come up with the $105 million the district requested of the city, how to fill the $85 million deficit, the erosion of essentials like school nurses and books, or maybe the discouraging disparity - 33 percent, according to a recent study - between funding for rich districts vs. poor ones like ours.

NEW YORK - Severino Gonzalez, who has seen two of his four major-league starts end without a strikeout, began his outing Monday against the New York Mets on a curious run. Each of the 22-year-old righthander's first seven outs for the Phillies were recorded via strikeouts. Juan Lagares stood looking at an 89-m.p.h. fastball. Wilmer Flores and Anthony Recker swung through low-90s heaters. Michael Cuddyer, Danny Muno and Bartolo Colon each whiffed on sliders. Curtis Granderson struck out swinging on a sinker to lead off the third.

STATE REP. Louise Williams Bishop has tried mightily to distance herself from the Lancaster Avenue Redevelopment Corp. She refused to answer questions about her ties to the floundering nonprofit when the Daily News dug into its finances last year. But the tape don't lie. Bishop, 81, a minister and longtime gospel-radio host, not only pocketed $1,500 from lobbyist-turned-informant Tyron Ali, but also was recorded in 2010 trying to get Ali to steer business to a LARC-owned property in West Philadelphia, according to the grand-jury presentment released yesterday.

RICHMOND, Va. - Michael Rocco ran for the go-ahead touchdown Saturday, and Richmond, ranked 14th in the FCS coaches poll, cashed in on a missed point-after attempt to beat No. 3 Villanova, 10-9. Villanova's Steve Weyler kicked a 24-yard field goal, and John Robertson hit Lincoln Collins with a 5-yard scoring pass to give the Wildcats a 9-3 third-quarter lead. But Weyler missed the point-after attempt, and Rocco capped the Spiders' next drive with a 15-yard scoring run. Richmond's defense held Villanova, which has surpassed 40 points six times in eight games this season, to 114 yards rushing.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Eagles could have been stunned, if only they had not known what was coming. All week, they acknowledged that the Arizona Cardinals like to challenge defenses with the vertical passing game. They knew they had to keep the Cardinals wide receivers in front of them. At the most pivotal point in Sunday's game, Cardinals wide receiver John Brown raced past Eagles safety Nate Allen and cornerback Cary Williams. Carson Palmer hurled the ball as deep as he could, and Brown stretched his arms to haul in the pass on the run. The result was a 75-yard, go-ahead touchdown with 81 seconds remaining to give the Cardinals a 24-20 victory over the Eagles.
