To those who have seen Lansdale Catholic's football team over the last couple of seasons, the Crusaders' high-powered offense appears to come from many years of practice. And if you didn't know better, you'd think quarterback Mike deMarteleire diagrams half his team's plays in the dirt for friends he's known since he was 6. It certainly looked that way Saturday night when the Crusaders clobbered Owen J. Roberts, 43-13, in a Pioneer Athletic Conference game at North Penn. But deMarteleire had never met any of his classmates until transferring to Lansdale Catholic after his family moved from New Jersey when he was a freshman.

Led by prolific passer John Algeo, the Lansdale Catholic offense has been grabbing more of the attention in this young football season. But to repeat as District 1 Class AA champions, or even go beyond, the Crusaders know there will be games when the defense will have to carry the load. Luckily for the Crusaders, that unit appears more than capable of doing the job. Just ask Great Valley. Lansdale Catholic held visiting Great Valley to just 120 yards of total offense and earned a 14-0 victory in the Pioneer Athletic Conference opener for both teams Saturday night at North Penn High School.

Mickey Algeo held her 4-week-old grandson, Ryan Anthony, in a baby blanket and waited patiently for her husband, Jim Algeo Sr., to finish speaking with reporters. Lansdale Catholic had just escaped with a 29-26 win over visiting Phoenixville in a Pioneer Athletic Conference football game Saturday night at Wissahickon High, and Mickey Algeo had every reason to smile. Her husband's team won the game. The victory came at the expense of Jim and Mickey's son, Dan, who is in his first year as Phoenixville coach.

Alyssa Messina didn't really have a lot to say about her own performance at the plate for the Lansdale Catholic softball team Tuesday afternoon. The senior third baseman and captain of the Crusaders went 2 for 3 with a double, home run, and four runs batted in, but she responded with a drawn-out "yeah" and a laugh when her stellar offensive output was mentioned. The cleanup hitter's bat was the difference against Conwell-Egan, but what Messina really wanted to talk about was the magnitude of the 5-3 win in the Catholic League matchup.

This time last season, Lansdale Catholic was struggling. High expectations evaporated beneath an 0-3 cloud that the Crusaders never were able to crawl from under, and their season ended with a disappointing 6-11 record. So this season's 3-1-1 start (2-1 Pioneer Athletic Conference) has been refreshing. The Crusaders have played well, with a 2-1 nonleague victory Saturday over Upper Darby for the first time in three years and a 2-2 tie in their season opener against North Penn. Lansdale Catholic coach Tom O'Donnell has changed his lineup slightly, moving senior Chris Glinski, the team's leader in assists last season, back to the sweeper position to shore up a porous defense.

ABOUT TWO hours before the 76ers play a home game at the Wells Fargo Center, a familiar face makes his way down onto the court and the mood immediately changes. Smiles contagiously appear. There isn't a mad rush toward Jimmy Lynam, but the flow of the traffic on the court that consists of players, coaches and media members shifts toward the 74-year-old Philadelphia legend. Everyone wants to say hi and talk a little hoops with the patriarch of this basketball-rich city. And Lynam has time for everyone.

Power, who also had six assists, scored all 15 of his points in the final quarter. Marc Rodriguez scored a game-high 24 points and shot 9 for 9 from the floor.
