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.

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.

WHAT IT IS - Working side by side for over 12 years with her husband - a native of Naples, Italy - at their family's Italian restaurant in Millville, Lucy Covino dreamed of opening a place of her own where she could honor the cuisine of her native Mexico with offerings like the sweet and spicy mole sauce her mother spent hours preparing. On a day trip to Cape May last fall, Covino noticed a small place for rent at Perry Street and Carpenters Lane behind the Washington Street pedestrian mall.

NEW YORK - As he mindlessly shagged balls in the vast Yankee Stadium outfield Monday afternoon, that recent rumor about Mike Trout didn't seem so crazy at all. Three weeks ago, a Boston newspaper suggested the scuffling Los Angeles Angels were considering moving their Roy Hobbs-ian centerfielder. If they did, it said, the Yankees would be the most logical destination. Now, on this blue-sky afternoon, as he stood where Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle had become Yankee legends - center field in the Bronx - Trout was framed by the magnitude of that pin-striped possibility.

The bases were loaded and nobody was out in the top of the sixth inning and South Jersey's most feared hitter stepped to the plate. Suddenly, that 2-0 lead that Clearview had over Millville seemed tenuous at best. Clearview lefthander Kenny Mendoza got Millville junior and pitching counterpart Buddy Kennedy on a pop-up to first, recorded a strikeout, and ended the inning by inducing a grounder to short on a 3-2 pitch. The key was the confrontation with the ever dangerous Kennedy.

Racobaldo, a junior righthander, allowed two hits in four scoreless innings, and 11th-seeded Washington Township sent 12 batters to the plate in an eight-run fourth inning Thursday en route to a 13-1 victory over third-seeded Cherry Hill West.

The sage advice from the grandfather and former major-leaguer was simple but poignant. "If you can hit, they will find a spot for you," said Don Money, a/k/a the grandfather. Through the years, the grandson has certainly taken his grandfather's advice. And now the grandson is one of the most feared hitters in South Jersey. Millville junior third baseman Buddy Kennedy has been torching some of South Jersey's finest pitchers this season. When the high school season ends, he will be going around the country in high-profile baseball tournaments or tryouts.
