The early starting time of the Central Jersey Group 1 field hockey semifinal Wednesday forced Collingswood freshman Sara Waldron to miss her world history and gym classes. She spent that time giving a lesson in theoretical physics instead. It turns out that, when Waldron's involved, an unstoppable force can eventually wear down an immovable object. Waldron scored twice and No. 1 Collingswood overcame a monumental effort by Maple Shade goalie Dana Sheply to win, 3-2, at home. The defending champion Panthers will host No. 2 Gloucester for the title Saturday at a time to be determined.

On a hot and mostly sunny September afternoon three years ago, a freshman forward on Temple's field hockey team took a pass from then-senior Bridget Settles and sent it through the legs of Lafayette's goalkeeper to register the first goal of her collegiate career. The Owls fell by 4-2 in that game - one of numerous defeats during what would become their fourth straight losing season. But three years have made a big difference at Geasey Field on Temple's main campus. Last weekend against the Leopards, that former freshman - Amber Youtz - scored her 25th goal of the season for an Owls team that's currently ranked No. 16 in the nation.

The Rowan University ice hockey team arrived at 6:30 a.m. for conditioning. While most students slept, the athletes did suicide sprints, lunges, and push-ups during an hour-long workout in the Rowan recreation center just over a week ago. It was a scene similar to any NCAA team workout, except this wasn't an NCAA team. Ice hockey is a club sport at Rowan, but don't tell that these players. "I don't think it should be classified as a club sport," said Alec Nicolai, a junior right wing.

Coming off a tough loss to rival Woodstown, Delsea needed a boost of adrenaline in preparation for the South Jersey Group 2 field hockey state tournament next week. When the clock hit 5 minutes, 26 seconds in overtime, the Crusaders got just what they needed, and they rushed onto the field to celebrate a 1-0 win at Gloucester (13-3-2), in a rainy tri-county matchup on Wednesday afternoon. "This is huge right before we go into the playoffs," Delsea coach Meg Unger said. "This is what we needed.

TAMPA, Fla. - When Shayne Gostisbehere took his seat aboard the Flyers' chartered flight bound for Florida yesterday afternoon, marking the launch of his first NHL road trip, it was just another milestone on a journey that began in Montreal in the 1940s. His grandfather, Denis Brodeur, grew up in Montreal but migrated to the land of opportunity in Florida at age 11 in 1955. Brodeur's love for the Canadiens, ingrained in all Montrealers, never left him. In 1955, the NHL was beyond an afterthought in South Florida.

Unionville freshman Erin Matson and her teammates were thinking about the obvious at halftime Wednesday against Downingtown East. "One goal just wasn't going to be enough," Matson said. Minutes earlier, in the PIAA District 1 Class AAA field hockey semifinal, she had fired the ball into the cage to put her team on the scoreboard. But the Indians needed another goal to secure a comeback victory and keep their district title hopes alive. Twenty-six seconds into the second half, Matson delivered, netting the go-ahead goal.

It was the kind of stroke a shooter wants to take, and the kind of save a goalie is not expected to make. But Archbishop Carroll's Kerri Mountz turned away Bonner-Prendergast's final attempt with her stick to seal a 3-2 stroke victory for the second-seeded Patriots in a Catholic League semifinal at Cardinal O'Hara on Monday night. Courtney Brady scored what proved to be the winning stroke one shot earlier. The third-seeded Pandas' final shooter aimed stick-side, which is the ideal place to put a stroke.

The rain fell hard and the ball rolled slowly on Wednesday at Conestoga's Teamer Field, but that didn't bother the Pioneers. Their coach, Megan Smyth, said she thought her Conestoga field hockey players were actually enjoying playing in a steady downpour. A 2-0 win against West Chester Henderson, last year's district champion, made the afternoon even more enjoyable for them. Eighth-seeded Conestoga ousted the ninth-seeded Warriors in the second round of the District 1 Class AAA playoffs as a strong first half propelled the Pioneers to the quarterfinals.
