St. Joseph's Prep quarterback Jack Clements, who worked at ironing out the kinks in his game during the team's disappointing 1-3 start, earned his stripes in a big way Friday night against bitter rival La Salle. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior, who filled in at times down the stretch last year, completed 15 of 19 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown as the No. 7-ranked Hawks rallied late for a 35-31 triumph over the No. 1 Explorers. "I was proud of him," Prep coach Gabe Infante said.

La Salle is riding a big wave of momentum after battling back from a 17-point deficit and knocking off fellow juggernaut Archbishop Wood, 35-31, last week in a thriller. After losing three of four games against out-of-state powers, St. Joseph's Prep gained a much-needed boost with a 49-28 romp over Malvern Prep. That sets the stage for the highly anticipated Catholic League Class AAAA opener between the Explorers and Hawks at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Plymouth Whitemarsh. An overflow crowd is expected.

TAKING OVER a Catholic League baseball program coming off a Class AAAA state championship, its second in three seasons, and replacing a long-time head coach can certainly be daunting. But, so can becoming a first-time teacher. Such is the case for La Salle High's new baseball coach Kyle Werman. "There were definitely some nerves," Werman said with a chuckle via phone yesterday. "As an athlete you can always reflect back on your experiences on the field and that's how I kind of felt Day 1 getting thrown into it. " Yesterday, La Salle announced in a statement that Werman would succeed Joe Parisi, who remains a teacher and athletic director, but retired from coaching after 28 seasons following last year's state title run.

Late in Week 4, when starting quarterback Connor O'Keefe went down with an injury and backup Matt Szczypiorski was unavailable for the same reason, Central Bucks East had no choice but to hand the reins to an emergency signal-caller. With that, Jack Lamb, previously a full-time inside linebacker and part-time running back for the Patriots, went under center for the first time since he was an eighth-grader at Holicong Middle School. "I was a little bit rusty at first, but I'm improving with each week," the 6-foot, 200-pound junior said.

Archbishop Wood, with 333 rushing yards, led comfortably by 17 points late in the third quarter Friday night in its showdown against La Salle. That's when a near-certain win began to evaporate. The resilient Explorers, fueled by the spectacular play of Jimmy Herron and two turnovers, flipped the switch, scored three times in the final 12 minutes, and emerged with a 35-31 victory before an overflow crowd at William Tennent. "It's just great," La Salle coach Drew Gordon said while his players celebrated the improbable triumph.

THE CITY'S all-time leader in receiving touchdowns was busy last night. La Salle High senior Jimmy Herron caught four more touchdowns as the Explorers overcame a 17-point, third-quarter deficit to stun previously unbeaten Archbishop Wood, 35-31, before an overflow crowd at William Tennent High. He now has 33 career receiving TDs. However, Herron isn't an all-he-does-is-catch-touchdowns wideout. The 6-1, 185-pound defensive back also recovered a late fumble and broke up Wood's last gasp on a fourth-and-15 from the 50 with under a minute remaining.

Samantha Davis was still in high school at Bishop McDevitt when her father would bring home tapes of football games he had officiated and review them. Sometimes during these film sessions, she would walk by and say, "Wasn't that a penalty?" And her father would tell her, "You should do this. " Davis is a 2014 La Salle University graduate who, in addition to taking her father's advice, is now taking graduate school classes in history at La Salle. She spends her weekends looking for pass interference and works a side job on the sideline at Eagles games.
