No one expected Monsignor Bonner to be a power in the Eastern League this year after 16 of its players graduated. In fact, coach Ted Dolan probably would have been happy settling for a .500 season with the corps of youth he has skating on the team. Instead, the Friars seem to have started the season just as powerfully as last year's 15-2-1 team, which ended up second in the league to Malvern. After a 5-4 win over Haverford High on Friday night at the Skatium, Bonner raised its record to a perfect 5-0 to sit well atop the league standings.

Footballs floated like beach balls around the wind-swept football field at Upper Darby High yesterday, but Dan D'Orazio managed to drill a pair of field goals and lift Cardinal O'Hara to a 6-0 Catholic League victory over Monsignor Bonner. The first, a 48-yarder with 1:58 left in the first half, was D'Orazio's second try with the furious but fickle wind at his back. His 51-yard attempt earlier in the quarter was long enough, but flitted to the left of the uprights with the gust of the moment.

Fueled by a steady offensive attack over four quarters, West Catholic posted a 27-6 nonleague win Friday night against visiting Monsignor Bonner at Widener University. Quarterback Anthony Reid was almost flawless in helping the Burrs overcome a 23-14 season-opening loss at Roman Catholic the previous week. Reid connected on his first nine passes and finished 9 for 10 for 108 yards and a touchdown. He also collected 26 rushing yards on four carries. Joshua Mathis led the rushing attack for West Catholic, which improved its record to 1-1. Mathis totaled 95 yards on nine carries, scoring on a 26-yard run that allowed the Burrs to take a 13-6 lead into halftime.

With all the excitement about the Subway Series, Monsignor Bonner showed that running is a reliable and speedy mode of transportation in New York City. The Friars illustrated that by winning Saturday's "B" division boys' cross-country race at the Eastern States Championships in the Bronx's Van Cortlandt Park. "Every year we make a trip out of it," Bonner coach Jim Doyle said. "We go up on Friday and check out the course. It's a good bonding thing. When they come back, they are talking about it. It gives kids motivation to make the trip next year.

Erick Womack called it a "new beginning" for the Monsignor Bonner football team. At the very least, it was the end of a long losing streak. On Saturday afternoon, Womack and the Friars, pushing aside 10 years of frustration against Delaware County neighbor and Catholic League Class AAA foe Cardinal O'Hara, posted a 20-13 victory in the league opener for both squads at Upper Darby High. Including two playoff clashes, O'Hara had won the last 11 meetings. From 2003 to 2008, the Lions won six contests by a combined score of 190-36.

Two years ago, the biggest battle for Neumann-Goretti's Joey Gorman wasn't on the baseball field. A severe case of social anxiety caused him to leave St. Joseph's Prep and enroll in a home-school curriculum. "It kind of popped out of nowhere," said Gorman, a standout pitcher and outfielder. "I was pretty outgoing before that. When it came on, I didn't want to go to school or go out much. " Gorman, with the help of medication and cognitive behavior therapy at Temple University, has since flourished in the classroom and in social settings.

A year ago, Mark Thompson and Scott Dieter were members of Upper Darby's junior varsity wrestling team. Last night, Thompson and Dieter were key winners as the Royals crushed Monsignor Bonner, 48-9. Thompson, a 112-pound senior, scored a 13-2 major decision over Bonner's Ed Maher, and Dieter pinned Ryan Cassidy in 3 minutes, 34 seconds at 145 to help the Royals improve to 3-1. "I expected them (Thompson and Dieter) to be good this season, but probably not so quickly," said Royals coach Bob Martin.

Monsignor Bonner's basketball team enjoyed a prolonged warm-up yesterday before its nonleague game against Malvern Prep, as both teams waited for the referees to show up. For a good 40 minutes, Bonner's players casually threw up shots from all over the court, sinking so many that a Malvern fan remarked, "They're all shooters, every one of them. " Problem was, Bonner should have saved it for the game. In an uncharacteristic showing, Bonner fell flat for three of the four quarters and Malvern rallied in the final eight minutes for a 50-48 upset.

Staying within the family, Monsignor Bonner has promoted Greg "Bubba" Bernhardt from assistant to head football coach. Bernhardt, 34, was the team's offensive coordinator for the last five seasons. Before that, he served in the same position at Cardinal O'Hara. "Obviously, I'm extremely excited," he said. "Since I got into coaching, it's been a dream of mine to be Bonner's coach. " Bernhardt, a 1995 Bonner graduate, was a wide receiver and cornerback for the Friars' 1994 Catholic League championship team.

NICK DONOVAN is still a junior in high school, so there's no rush in picking a course of study for college. We're thinking he may opt for psychology, however, seeing as how he seems to be fascinated by the inner workings of human brains . . . Those belonging to batters, at least. Overall, Donovan, a 5-11, 180-pound junior righthander, was a quick worker Thursday while hurling Cardinal O'Hara High past its archrival, host Monsignor Bonner, 4-3, in eight innings, in a Catholic Red goodie.

Consecutive pins by Vickson Krah, Idris White, and Tim Maguire helped Father Judge clinch a berth in the Catholic League wrestling team championship match.

Helped by four forfeit wins in the first seven weight classes, Judge built a 36-3 lead. Krah scored a third-period fall at 160 pounds, and White (170) and Maguire (182)

For coach Tim Vanderslice and Monsignor Bonner's freshman basketball players, the first afternoon of the rest of their lives proceeded on a dimly lit practice court in front of a scoreboard that at one point read, appropriately: "Guest 55 Friars 0.
