The scheduled fourth Thanksgiving Day football game between Malvern Prep and St. Joseph's Prep has been moved from Villanova University to Plymouth Whitemarsh High for financial reasons, Prep spokesman Bill Avington said. The Prep uses Plymouth Whitemarsh as its home site. With last year's 17-16 victory at Villanova Stadium, Malvern Prep took a 2-1 lead in the Catholic League vs. Inter-Ac League holiday series. - Rick O'Brien

When some coaches get cleaned out of top-notch players, they take a sabbatical. At Malvern Prep, Gaspare "Gamp" Pellegrini measures the new kids for championship jackets. Pellegrini produced 11 Inter-Ac League titles (10 outright, one shared) in his first 18 seasons at Malvern and he again expects to contend despite a lineup that will often feature underclassmen at 15 of the 22 starting positions. "We only have seven seniors on the whole team," he said, not complaining, just informing.

Because of illness, Downingtown freshman heavyweight Will Thompson had a late start to the wrestling season. But yesterday, competing in his second varsity bout, Thompson used his 274 pounds to record a second-period pin in the Whippets' nonleague match against Malvern Prep. Thompson's pin against Matt Intoccia capped an easy 55-13 win for the Whippets, who are the No. 4 team in The Inquirer's suburban rankings. "I'm feeling pretty good," said Thompson, who described his illness as something "like mono.

Malvern Prep is moving and passing the puck like never before this season. Moving past La Salle in the Inter-County League Class AAA standings is the next objective for the Friars, who face the Explorers at 8:30 tonight at Ice Line in West Chester. La Salle (11-3 overall, 4-0 league) is in first place; Malvern Prep (4-2, 4-2) is second. Although the teams will play another regular-season game Feb. 12, tonight's matchup could have postseason implications. "We really control our own destiny," Malvern coach John Graves said.

Malvern Prep had already clinched at least a tie for the Inter-Academic League crown before Tuesday's game with Penn Charter. The host Friars just wanted to ice the championship cake with a win over Charter. But Malvern left the cake out in the rain. The Friars committed four errors in the fourth inning, helped the Quakers to a 6-0 lead, lost any chance of momentum to two rain delays, and went down in the soggy end, 8-3. So for the second straight year, Malvern and Charter finished tied atop the Inter-Ac standings.

When Malvern Prep's ice hockey team loses, it usually marks the end of the season and time for spring sports. Since winning the Flyers Cup Championship three years ago, Malvern has twice skated through regular seasons without a loss to an Eastern High School Hockey League opponent. But in the playoffs the last two years, Malvern has twice suffered season-ending defeats before reaching the finals. Although the Friars had seasons that made other teams envious, they were still unfulfilled.

Germantown Academy's 6-foot-9 senior center, Chris Krug, will rank among Southeastern Pennsylvania's most-sought-after boys' basketball recruits this season. For Inter-Academic League rival Malvern Prep, whose tallest starter is 6-3, Krug also will be one of the most difficult to defend. However, after the wave of flu that hit Germantown Academy this week, the gray apparition of Krug that Patriots coach Jim Fenerty saw in class yesterday may be no match for the Friars. Fenerty, coach of the three-time defending league champions, knows how devastating one loss in the league's 10-game schedule can be to title hopes.

Allegedly to bypass a trade embargo on Chinese goods in 1983, Eagle's Eye Inc. shipped in 13,983 pairs of children's and ladies' pants labeled "Made in Hong Kong," when the clothing had been made in China. Some alert U.S. Customs agents got wind of the illegal practice, and when Eagle's Eye shipped 7,050 women's sweaters to Philadelphia on Oct. 28, 1983, they were seized. The labels on the sweaters said "Made in Japan," but many had been manufactured in China, and the rest had been made in Hong Kong, according to federal authorities.

If Ivan Wilkins had gone scoreless in the first quarter of a game last year, the 6-foot, 3-inch Malvern Prep forward probably would have disappeared for the rest of the contest. But Wilkins is a changed basketball player this season. More confident. More aggressive. If he doesn't score in a quarter, he just turns it up a notch in the next period. "He's starting to realize that he can play with anybody," Malvern Prep coach Bud Tosti said after the Friars trounced Overbrook, 53-36, for the Carroll Converse Classic championship Saturday night.

Two games into the Inter-Ac League boys' basketball season, Malvern Prep was in trouble. The team had lost its league opener to Penn Charter in desultory fashion, falling, 58-46. Episcopal Academy then jumped to a 10-2 lead against the Friars in their next game. As Malvern guard Ryan Polley put it, "We were going nowhere, fast. " But Malvern rallied in that Episcopal game, using a 24-10 fourth quarter to beat the Churchmen, 58-49. And it was the start of a brilliant turnaround, as Malvern went on to win nine of its last 10 games, including Friday's 67-39 victory over Chestnut Hill Academy.

When Gil Hanse flew to Rio de Janeiro with his wife and the couple's youngest child at the start of 2013 to supervise construction of the golf course for the next Summer Olympics, he figured it would be "a slam dunk" to build it in about 10 months given that grass could grow year-round in the balmy Brazilian climate. There was no way, however, that Hanse, a Malvern resident who is one of golf's most highly regarded course designers, could have foreseen the land ownership disputes, environmental protests, logistical nightmares and broken promises that turned the historic project into a stressful undertaking of more than two years for him, his team, and his family.

Endo International, with U.S. headquarters in Malvern, reported a $133.9 million loss in the first quarter after the stock market closed Thursday, sending shares down 24 percent in after-market trading. Endo said will restructure its generic medicines manufacturing business, and cut 740 employees in Charlotte, N.C. and Huntsville, Ala. Endo employs 350 in Malvern and 6,000 worldwide. The reductions will not impact Malvern, a company spokeswoman said. Endo reported revenue of $963.5 million, which fell short of analysts' $964.4 million estimate.

When the Haverford School lacrosse season began without 22 seniors from last year's undefeated squad, coach John Nostrant knew Keyveat Postell would be an important piece to the Fords' puzzle. Friday afternoon against Inter-Ac rival Malvern Prep, Postell was just that, netting five goals as the Fords jumped ahead early and held on late for a 16-12 triumph over the visiting Friars. "We've been looking forward to this game for a while," said Postell, a senior and Haverford School lifer.

Malvern Prep's Shane Muntz more than made up for plunking five batters and being lifted after only 21/3 innings Tuesday in the Inter-Ac League opener against Haverford School. The 6-foot-4, 245-pound junior belted a three-run home run to left field in the first inning and a clinching grand slam to right in the seventh as the visiting Friars stayed hot with a 9-4 win over the Fords. Muntz, a righthander whose fastball hovers in the 88-to-92-mph range, first addressed the pitching wildness.

He's just 5-foot-8 and about 150 pounds, so perhaps the element of surprise is Billy Coyle's best friend on the lacrosse field. When all else fails, however, a lefthanded laser also does the trick. The Malvern Prep junior employed both Saturday as the Friars led early, came from behind late, and eventually survived visiting Garnet Valley, 11-10, on Coyle's game-winning goal with 2.9 seconds left. What earned Coyle room to fire was a bit of trickery. After calling a timeout with 16.4 seconds remaining, Malvern coach John McEvoy sent his Friars (5-1)

Bryn Mawr-based Alliance Partners HSP L.L.C. is looking to sell the former Trinity Corporate Center in Malvern after redeveloping the three-building, 129,000-square-foot office park. Douglas Rodio, a managing director at real estate services firm JLL, said he is marketing the property - since renamed ArborRidge - for Alliance, which is also working on the SoNo warehouse conversion project in Philadelphia's Northern Liberties neighborhood. Alliance acquired the Malvern property in August 2012, according to its website.
