There will be no repeat of 1983 for the field-hockey team at Springfield High School. Four years ago, the Spartans reached the pinnacle by winning the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Class AA state championship. But Tuesday night at Northern Lebanon High School, Springfield's dreams of a return to those magical times were shattered with a 3-1 loss to Millville in the quarterfinal round of the state playoffs. As has been their habit this year, the Spartans got off to a slow start.

Holy Spirit, ranked No. 3 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, toppled No. 1 Millville yesterday, 15-13, in what probably will be known for years as "The War at the Shore. " In a game in which so much rode on the outcome and in which the result was measured by only two points, nearly every play was critical. But two of them stood out. The first was a completed screen pass from Millville quarterback Bob Campbell to running back Scott Parent on an attempted two-point conversion late in the second quarter.

Two weeks removed from setting the school's single-game rushing record, Millville sophomore Rob Ennis continued his strong play on Wednesday night. The Thunderbolts won, 20-14, over visiting Hammonton in a Cape-Atlantic League football game behind two Ennis rushing touchdowns. Ennis dashed for 44 yards on the game's first play from scrimmage and then capped the drive with a 6-yard rush. Late in the third quarter, the Thunderbolts trailed by two and again turned to Ennis, who scampered 14 yards for his second touchdown and the game's final score.

Cinque Hill strutted with a confident nod. The Eastern receiver pulled down a soft, 11-yard pass from Tom Flacco in the left corner of the end zone to open a 35-18 lead Friday night against visiting Millville. Hill made the game's final score look easy, but Eastern needed 21 unanswered points in the second half to come back and pull away in the South Jersey Group 5 football semifinal. "I was very worried," Eastern coach Dan Spittal said. "But our kids have a lot of confidence.

Andrew Biggs has 51 strikeouts in just 21 innings. But he's more than a pitcher. Biggs has four doubles, a triple, and a home run. But he's more than a hitter. "I like to think of myself as a two-way player," said Biggs, who has led Millville to an 8-2 record and No. 4 spot in The Inquirer's Top 10. "I've been blessed with talent as both a pitcher and a hitter. I like to do both. " Biggs said one reason he has made a commitment to attend Delaware State on a baseball scholarship is that the Hornets view him as an athlete who can play the field and stay in the lineup when he isn't pitching.

All season, the Millville football team has been finding ways to win, twice using a Scott Shea field goal in the final minute to create victory. But yesterday, the Thunderbolts, No. 6 in The Inquirer's Top 10, lost their first game of the year, 3-0, when Ocean City senior Dominic Iannace kicked a 26-yard field goal late in the first half. The win sent Ocean City (6-1-1 overall and league) into the Group 3 playoffs and kept the Raiders alive in the race for the Cape-Atlantic League's American Division championship.

MINNEAPOLIS - The moment was staged for TV. Red Sox manager John Farrell instructed White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez to wait until Fox returned from a commercial break between the third and fourth innings of Tuesday's 85th All-Star Game. Ramirez stepped onto the field at 8:31 p.m. Central time. A lone cameraman trailed him. Frank Sinatra crooned over the loudspeakers. Derek Jeter, a reluctant participant for this national farewell, acted as if he were surprised. But Major League Baseball, in conjunction with Fox and Jeter, plotted the celebration details before Tuesday's first pitch because the Yankees shortstop loathes gratuitous attention.

MINNEAPOLIS - The game's best young hitter smashed 22 homers in the season's first 90 games - more than any of the 10 sluggers who swung in Monday night's Home Run Derby - but Mike Trout was nothing more than a spectator for it all. A reluctant one at that. "A lot of guys are giving me crap about it, not doing it," Trout said. "But eventually, I'll probably do it. " The Millville native insinuated that Angels manager Mike Scioscia discouraged Trout from participating. Trout was never selected.

Joey Gatto remembers the first time he saw Mike Trout on a baseball field. It was a Millville at Hammonton game in the Cape Atlantic League's American Division in 2009. "He hit a home run over the center-field fence," said Gatto, who lives in Hammonton. "I've been following his career ever since. " Gatto now hopes to follow in Trout's footsteps. Gatto, who just finished his senior year at St. Augustine Prep, on Thursday night was drafted by Trout's major-league team, the Los Angeles Angels.

When the six NJSIAA baseball championships take place Saturday, the Cape-Atlantic League will be carrying the South Jersey banner. Buena will play Bernards in the 11 a.m. Group 2 title game at Toms River East. Mainland will be in the Group 3 final against Mount Olive, 2 p.m. at Toms River South. And St. Joseph, a team specializing in wacky comebacks, will face Hudson Catholic in Non-Public B, 2:30 at Toms River North. "Anytime one team from your conference gets in the state final, you are pulling for them, but when three get in, it is kind of something special," Mainland coach Bill Kern said.

The Los Angeles Angels struck gold the last time they selected a South Jersey baseball star from the Cape Atlantic League early in the major-league draft. That was superstar Mike Trout out of Millville in 2009. The Angels returned to deep South Jersey on Thursday night, grabbing St. Augustine Prep pitcher Joey Gatto with the 53d overall pick. "Another Jersey boy for your Halos," the Angels tweeted out shortly after the pick. The pick was announced by former Angels pitcher Bryan Harvey around 11:20 p.m., more than four hours into MLB Network's live coverage of the selection process.

By her own admission, Alyssa Cudeyro tends to get a little "crazy" during Washington Township softball games. Teammate, classmate, and close friend Jenna Mills has the bruise to prove it. Mills thinks it's a great thing that her fellow senior captain gets emotional at big moments in big games. She also thinks a black-and-blue patch on her pitching arm is a small price to pay for the emotional lift. Besides, Mills figures she has more than a mark on her right biceps to show for Cudeyro's excitement.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg played a hunch, and it worked to help wake up a sputtering Phillies offense. Sandberg moved Cody Asche from the No. 8 hole to the No. 6 for the first time this season, and the second-year third baseman made the move pay off. Asche broke the Phillies' 23-inning scoreless streak with an RBI double in the six-run fourth inning during the 12-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday at Citizens Bank Park. "That hit sparked everybody and loosened the bats," Sandberg said.

AFTER FIVE innings of yesterday's matinee, the Phillies had just two hits and had yet to advance a runner to third base. A.J. Burnett, meanwhile, had allowed nine of the first 15 Angels batters he faced to reach base. Burnett and the Phillies were lucky to be trailing by only three runs through those five innings. That was one of the positives Burnett tried to take out of his second straight so-so start. The righthander allowed single runs in each of his first three innings, but he also watched the Angels leave seven baserunners on in the game's first five innings while going 3-for-12 with runners in scoring position.

Cherokee's Christine DiLullo put four goals in the back of Millville's net Wednesday, but it was the last one that the senior will always remember. DiLullo scored her 100th career goal on her fourth of the game to help fifth-seeded Cherokee defeat 12th seed Millville, 18-5, in the first round of the South Jersey Group 4 lacrosse playoffs. Jessica Havers scored a team-high six goals for the host Chiefs, while Tara Zeuli added a hat trick. Megan Hoffman scored two goals for Millville.

It was a highly anticipated return to Citizens Bank Park, but not the one that captivated the city of Millville. While Millville's Mike Trout played his first professional game at the Phillies' stadium, his Los Angeles Angels teammate Raul Ibanez also experienced a homecoming of sorts. This was Ibanez's first time back at Citizens Bank Park since he left the Phillies after the 2011 season, his third with the club. "This place will always hold a special place in my heart," Ibanez said before Tuesday's game with the Phillies.
