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.

First, Holy Spirit lost its lead. Then, its quarterback. But the Spartans won't lose their grip on The Inquirer's No. 1 football ranking in South Jersey. And for that, Holy Spirit can thank its defense. In a game in which both teams scored on their first possessions, Holy Spirit used a tried and true formula to defeat host Millville, 16-7, Friday night in a Cape-Atlantic League American Conference matchup. The formula included some of the surest tackling one could see on a high school field.

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.

ISSUE | ISIS ET AL Try containment Trudy Rubin, not surprisingly, has it just right regarding how to deal with the Islamic State, and more broadly the entire issue of violent destabilization, by suggesting that the long-term solution is not military ("Can Obama achieve his objectives in battle with ISIS?" Sept. 28). Limiting terrorism so effectively that it becomes of little concern requires creating an environment in which people are less desperate. As the rich get richer and the poor poorer, as the haves have more and the have-nots have even less, as the free abuse their liberty and the exploited see decreasing opportunity, the only direction in which the world will go is toward horrific environments.

It might be a stretch to suggest that a 30-point loss in the opener could be the springboard to a strong season. But it might work out that way for the St. Augustine Prep football team. The Hermits bounced back in a big way on Friday night, beating then-No. 6 Millville by 27-12 in a Cape-Atlantic League American Division game. The win came six days after St. Augustine dropped a 36-6 contest to No. 1 St. Joseph in the season opener. "We knew we were a better team than that," St. Augustine senior running back Lamont Harris said.

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.

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.
