Frank Verna, Upper Darby's 5-foot-11, 178-pound senior running back, is a man on a mission, and Marple-Newtown found out the hard way Friday night. Verna ran for two touchdowns and passed for a third, racking up 246 yards on 20 carries and leading the Royals to a 41-7 manhandling of the Tigers in a Central League football game. The win improved Upper Darby's record to 6-2 overall, 5-2 in the league. Marple fell to 3-6, 3-4. "I feel that I've been overlooked this year," Verna said.

There wasn't a single coach on Marple Newtown's staff who could pinpoint the last time the Tigers won a Central League wrestling title. As recently as 2008-09, Marple went winless in the league. Last year, the Tigers fell one match short, finishing second to Garnet Valley. With every win, though, the program inches closer, and, with the team's 60-20 rout of Conestoga in the Pioneers' gym Thursday night, Marple moved to 14-0 overall and 7-0 in the league. After the win, in which the Tigers won 10 of 14 matches, including nine by pin, assistant coach Tim Leyr called former Tigers grappler Mike Glenn.

If Conestoga continues to roll over its softball opponents in the Central League this season, it will have its offensive strategy to thank for it. That formula simply calls for each batter to make contact. At no other time this season did that strategy loom larger for Conestoga (6-0 overall, 6-0 league) than in yesterday's surprisingly easy 11-3 win over previously undefeated Central League rival Marple Newtown (5-1, 5-1). Conestoga pounded out 14 hits, including six in a six-run first inning, to run away to the victory.

Because of a deadlock on the Marple Newtown school board, the traditional factors of geography and party may not determine how a seat now open on the board is filled. On July 11, the board failed to fill a seat left vacant by MaryAnn Tallman of Marple, who resigned in June to care for her ailing husband. Under state law, the board had 30 days to find a replacement for Tallman. After the deadlock at the July 11 meeting, time ran out. The power of appointment thus shifted to Delaware County Court Judge Joseph Battle, who is scheduled to choose a candidate at an Aug. 9 hearing.

The wet conditions provided Joe Gallagher with a ready excuse, but the Haverford High coach would not use it. "We played on the same field they did," Gallagher said after Marple Newtown had dropped Haverford, 21-7, Friday night in a Central League football game. "They just beat us up all the way around. " Marple (6-2-1 overall, 4-2-1 league) certainly beat Haverford (3-5-1, 3-4) on defense. The Tigers held the Fords to 35 yards in the first half and 110 in the game. They intercepted four passes, with Tom Iannarelli and R.J. Ippoldo registering two thefts apiece.

They had three shots in the last 15 seconds. One banked off the rim, glanced off the glass and went out. The next simply clanked off the rim. Finally, with 4 seconds left, Marple Newtown's last shot rolled up onto the back of the rim, hung there and fell off to the side. "The ball was on the rim for what seemed like an eternity," coach Vince Clarke said after his Tigers (5-11 overall, 3-8 in the Central League) lost a heartbreaker to Haverford High on Friday, 42-41. "When it doesn't roll in for you, you feel a little star-crossed.

Springfield (Delco) softball coach Todd Odgers figured the hits were going to come eventually. Tori DePietro and Ashley Scarpato thought so too. And with those hits, runs were sure to follow for the Cougars. But for the first five innings of what would eventually be a 7-0 Central League victory over Marple Newtown, the host Cougars struggled at the plate. A popup to second. A fly out to left field. A fly ball caught foul on the first-base side. Inning after inning, the Cougars (13-0 overall, 11-0 league)
