Scott LaPan made his best save of the game. Moments later, the game and the season ended for LaPan and the Haddon Township boys' soccer team. Travis Ward buried a rebound midway through the first overtime period to lift New Egypt to a 1-0 victory over Haddon Township in the Group 1 state semifinals Tuesday night at Haddonfield. "Best feeling in the world," Ward said after New Egypt (22-2) advanced to Sunday's state finals. LaPan and the Hawks seemed to have the exact opposite emotion.

Phil-Mont Christian Academy continued to make a shambles of the Keystone Conference, coasting to an 83-30 victory over Perkiomen School on Monday. The Falcons preceded the victory with a 102-52 thrashing of Cedar Grove last Tuesday in their league opener. "To be honest, the first two games were against the weaker teams in the league," Phil-Mont coach Chip Struck said. "These games should not be typical of the rest of the season. " The Falcons received blockbuster games Monday from 6-foot, 6-inch senior Carlin Warley, who scored 26 points and had 10 rebounds, and 6-5 junior Jim Petty, who scored a game-high 27 points.

Bartram running back Michael Alexander remembered last year's Public League football game with Germantown very well. He scored a touchdown to give the Braves a 20-0 halftime lead, but the Bears came back with 28 points in the fourth quarter to win the game. "We wanted to make sure that didn't happen again," Alexander said last night after he scored two touchdowns to help lead Bartram over Germantown, 46-8, at Benjamin Johnson Memorial Field. It was the third straight win for unbeaten Bartram, marking the best start for Damond Warren since returning to his alma mater to coach three years ago. The Braves jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first quarter as Alexander contributed one TD. This time they never let up. "It was just the lights, the band, the whole atmosphere - like Friday Night Lights," Alexander said.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - A Philadelphia star on DePaul's team moved the third-seeded Blue Demons to the Sweet 16 in the Philadelphia Regional of the NCAA women's basketball tournament Monday night. In the process, Keisha Hampton broke the hearts of Penn State, sinking two out of three foul shots with 4.9 seconds left to seal a 75-73 victory at the Bryce Jordan Center. Hampton, a graduate of Engineering and Sciences High, finished DePaul's comeback from a 14-point deficit and scored a game-high 26 points.

There are no stands surrounding the grass field at Shawnee High School. The 400 or so in attendance Tuesday afternoon were mostly sitting on the ground or standing, several deep in some spots, craning their necks to see the nation's most storied girls' lacrosse rivalry. Emotions always run high when Shawnee plays Moorestown in girls' lacrosse. The intensity on the field is different, something separate even from what you'd feel in a postseason game. But that still doesn't quite explain what the annual matchup means to the players.

Talk about timely. Senior midfielder Carl Walrath scored two goals in the final 36 seconds Wednesday night to rally undefeated Haverford School to a 5-4 victory over Malvern Prep in the first Inter-Academic Invitational championship game at Cabrini College. With the Fords' dream of finishing the lacrosse season unbeaten, and their top ranking in the country in jeopardy, Walrath scored his first goal of the game to tie the score, 4-4. Then with nine seconds on the clock, Walrath scored again to thwart Malvern's bid for a huge upset in the season finale for both teams.

Two foul shots by Gary Duda in the final moments of the game brought victory to Malvern Prep's Friars over host St. John Neumann 69-68 in nonleague action yesterday afternoon. Malvern (11-2), fresh off a win in the finals of the Cardinal O'Hara Tournament last week, trailed for most of the game but finally got the lead with four minutes to go. The Friars stretched the lead to 5 points when Duda canned 3 of 4 foul shots after a double technical was called on the Neumann bench. Neumann would not die, however.

Clearview's Alex Hochberg pitched once in a varsity game as a sophomore. It didn't go too well. "First batter hit a triple," Hochberg said. "Next batter hit a single. Next batter hit a home run. " Hochberg returned to the varsity mound on Monday afternoon and shut down Paul VI in the first round of the Grand Slam Classic at Washington Lake Park in Sewell. The junior righthander allowed four hits and one run in six innings, leading Clearview to a 3-1 victory in a well-played season opener for both teams.

Pottsgrove trailed by two runs and was down to its last out in Wednesday afternoon's Pioneer Athletic Conference softball game against Perkiomen Valley when freshman Gabbi Ermish came to the plate. Ermish had just given up two runs in the previous half-inning and needed to get on base to keep the Falcons' hopes alive. She singled, as did the next two batters, before Lexi Kehl ripped a bases-clearing triple to give Pottsgrove a 9-8 victory over the host Vikings. Ermish retired the side in order in the seventh inning to record the win. Kehl's bases-loaded triple capped a great game for the junior, who went 3 for 5 and drove in four runs.

NEWPORT, R.I. - There has been a name change, but little else is different for Phillip Walker, Temple's senior quarterback who spent his first three seasons known as P.J. As he was in his first three seasons, Walker will be the starter, and he already has thrown a school-record 52 touchdown passes. Walker has always exuded a quiet confidence, and even though this year's Owls have been described as his team, he said that nothing was different this offseason. "I have been doing things the same I always have and I am the same guy," Walker said Tuesday during the American Athletic Conference's football media day. Actually he's not exactly the same guy. Walker is listed at 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds, but he says he's up to 210 pounds and appears to have spent some serious time in the weight room.

It was the Game of the Year. Before the Crowd of the Year. Featuring the two Teams of the Year. But just one South Jersey Group 4 powerhouse team still could be standing at the end of the sectional tournament, and Egg Harbor Township literally walked off with the trophy thanks to Ella Glenn's RBI single in the bottom of the 13th inning on Friday. Glenn, a junior outfielder, was engulfed by teammates and dozens of Egg Harbor Township students who charged the field at the end of a three-hour, instant classic on the Eagles' manicured field.

As a Philadelphia sports fan, Henry Blynn couldn't help himself. He had to take a moment to look around Lincoln Financial Field and think about the Eagles who played there. The Brown attack and Haverford School grad joked that he considered crawling out of the tunnel Brian Dawkins-style before team practice Friday morning. Blynn is one of more than a dozen local players back home in the Philadelphia area this weekend to compete in the Division I men's lacrosse semifinals and championship.

It was a good night for Jason Groome. It was a better night for Tyler Mondile. Mondile outdueled Groome Monday as Gloucester Catholic High School scored a 1-0 victory over Barnegat in a highly anticipated clash of star senior pitchers before a near-capacity crowd at Campbell's Field. Mondile, a Florida State recruit projected as a possible early-round selection in the June 9 baseball draft, pitched a three-hitter with one walk and 10 strikeouts on a cool, clear night on the Camden waterfront.

DENVER - The basketball gods were cruel to the 76ers. How else can you explain how they had a much-needed victory snatched away Wednesday night? Emmanuel Mudiay lost the ball, bent down to pick it up and buried a 35-foot, three-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Denver Nuggets to a 104-103 victory at the Pepsi Center. "That's a tough way to lose," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "I thought T.J. [McConnell] hit it and almost had a steal. Give Mudiay a lot of credit. I thought he had a great game.

TORONTO – Jahlil Okafor's goal is to get as much knowledge as possible in two days. The 76ers center hopes to converse with the likes of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Steph Curry and other NBA all-stars while here at All-Star Weekend. "Pretty much [that's the plan] being around guys who have been there and done it consistently," said Okafor, who, along with Sixers teammate Nerlens Noel, was voted to take part in Friday night's Rising Stars Challenge at Air Canada Centre. "I'm not staying there the whole time," Okafor said.

St. Joseph's star DeAndre' Bembry said he didn't cut his famous hair because the Hawks had just lost a tough game or because Bembry had missed free throws that contributed to that loss. "I just got a little trim," Bembry said. "It wasn't supposed to be this low. " It got noticed, though. Bembry's hair gets almost as much attention from the wider public as his game does from NBA scouts. "I said, 'Ah, everybody's going to say something,' " Bembry said. "It was a little shorter than I wanted, but I'll deal with it. " Bembry joked that his Afro may have to be a thing of the past if he keeps playing like he did Sunday, leading St. Joe's past Rhode Island, 72-67 - leading all over the stat sheet, in points (22)

After watching his team shoot an incredible 63 percent in a blowout win over Xavier, Villanova coach Jay Wright entered the game Saturday night at Creighton concerned about whether his team would play the same kind of efficient game needed to keep a sellout crowd from getting loud. As it turned out, he had nothing to worry about. The 16th-ranked Wildcats enjoyed another terrific shooting game and rolled to an 85-71 victory over the Blue Jays at CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb.

When Sam Carangi was a freshman, her demeanor caught you by surprise at first. The calm way she carried herself in tight games; her lack of mental mistakes and turnovers. And then there was the ice-cold way she drained three-pointers when her team needed a big boost. No, there's no way No. 23 is a freshman, people must have thought. Surely the roster is incorrect. Now, the North Penn point guard is a junior, and you come to expect those types of plays from her - the way she makes everything looks easy.

Great Valley's Mark DeRobertis was all over the field Friday night. But only one play stood out to him in his team's 17-8 victory over fifth seeded Interboro. Surprisingly, it wasn't his 50-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that extended his No. 4 Patriots' lead in the District One AAA first-round matchup. It came in the ensuing series, when the visiting Buccaneers were attempting to make a comeback. A fumbled snap left the ball rolling on the turf, and DeRobertis, playing defense, jumped on it with about 3 minutes, 30 seconds left.
