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.

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.

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.

It's the marquee weekend matchup in Southeastern Pennsylvania. It's also arguably one of the top games in the country.

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.

The average annual gas price was $1.08. President Bill Clinton was embroiled in the Monica Lewinsky scandal. And the Eagles, under coach Ray Rhodes, went 3-13 and placed last in the NFC East. The year was 1998. It marks the last time Catholic League powerhouses La Salle and Archbishop Wood squared off on the gridiron. That 16-year break ends Friday night when the Vikings, undefeated and ranked No. 1 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, and the No. 2 Explorers meet at William Tennent for area bragging rights.

Lamar Stevens used to watch older basketball players at the Haverford School gather college offers. And he said he always wanted it to be him. "Now that it is me, it's a little surreal," the junior said. It's also starting to get busy for Stevens. Stanford will visit him at school on Sunday. Vanderbilt will check in later in the week. The 6-foot-6 small forward will visit Penn State on Oct. 25 and Indiana on Nov. 14. He has scholarship offers from Indiana, Penn State, La Salle, St. Joseph's, Temple, Villanova, and others.

For Spencer Patton, every second that ticked off the scoreboard clock at Lower Bartley Field felt like a minute. His La Salle soccer team was up a goal in a taut game against visiting St. Joseph's Prep, and the final few minutes dragged on and on for the sophomore tricaptain. Every cleared ball didn't seem to go far enough, and every free kick for the Hawks looked like a dangerous opportunity. But then the whistle finally blew Tuesday afternoon, and the Explorers' 2-1, come-from-behind win was complete, propelled by two goals in a four-minute span of the Catholic League game.
