NEPTUNE, N.J. - The final second ticked off the clock in Wednesday's Group 4 girls' soccer semifinal, and for the first time in six years, Lenape was on the wrong end of the scoreboard in the state tournament. The state's girls' soccer dynasty had ended. On a cold, windy night in Neptune, Central Group 4 champion Montgomery topped Lenape, 2-1. One of the most storied chapters in South Jersey scholastic sports history was over. As emotional Lenape players and coaches walked off the field, some were tripping over their words, and most were silent.

Riverside High's boys' soccer season came to an abrupt halt yesterday, one game short of an appearance in a state final. The Rams lost, 3-1, in overtime to Montgomery in the state Group 1 soccer field at Steinert (a.k.a. Hamilton East), but not for a lack of legitimate scoring chances. Riverside, No. 8 in The Inquirer's South Jersey ratings, finished its season 17-4-2. Montgomery (13-4-2) advances to Thursday's 6 p.m. state Group 1 state championship game at Trenton State College against Glen Rock, a 3-2 winner yesterday over Brearley.

NEPTUNE - The knock on Lenape goalkeeper Allison Johnson, if there is one, is that she simply does not have to deal with the volume of shots that other soccer keepers do. Her skills can sometimes be overlooked when she's not being challenged. But usually there comes a moment in every game when Johnson reminds you of why she's one of the strongest keepers in the state. Thanks to a nearly flawless defensive effort, even that one moment didn't come in the Indians' 2-0 victory over Montgomery on Tuesday in the state Group 4 semifinals.

Buoyed by Mike Handlan's five-goal, four-assist performance, second-ranked Moorestown snapped a 5-5 halftime tie and went on to thump host Montgomery, 15-6, on Friday in a Skyland Conference lacrosse match. The Quakers (3-1 overall, 2-1 conference) ran out to a 5-1 lead, but Montgomery battled back to pull even at intermission. Moorestown ended the match on a 10-1 run, with major contributions from Matt Olbrich (4 goals), Ryan Volosin (3 goals), and Drew Hillman (1 goal, 3 assists)

It used to be that you could stop by the corner office above right field at Jack Russell Stadium and get a bold prediction on the Phillies' season from the man who occupied that room. But David Montgomery is not Bill Giles. "I'd rather let others judge our 1999 expectations," Montgomery said in an interview Thursday as another spring training wound down. It has been almost two years since Montgomery replaced Giles as president of the Phillies. To his detractors, Montgomery is the man who presides over the ball club's checkbook, the point man for an ownership group that, fairly or not, is perceived as cheap.

Edward A. Montgomery Jr. announced yesterday that his three-year effort to restore growth and profitability at a tempestuous Mellon Bank (East) in Philadelphia was coming to an end. The highly visible Montgomery, who lent Mellon's name, as well as his own time and energy, to numerous Philadelphia civic and social causes, "has elected to take early retirement" at the age of 54, the company said from its Pittsburgh headquarters. He will be replaced, starting Nov. 7, by Thomas F. Donovan, the former No. 2 executive at the nation's 22nd-largest banking company, Marine Midland Banks of New York.

NEW ORLEANS - When Wilbert Montgomery ran for 194 yards against the Cowboys in the 1980 NFC championship game, few remember that his backup, Leroy Harris, had a pretty good game, too. Harris rushed for 60 yards on 10 carries and scored the Eagles second touchdown when he lumbered for 12 yards in the third quarter. Montgomery's scintillating 42-yard burst to open the scoring on that frigid Philadelphia day will always be remembered as a peak moment in the franchise's history. But Harris played an important part in getting the Eagles to their first Super Bowl.

Willis Nicholson was at his best when the clock was stopped and his feet were firmly on the floor. The senior guard shot 16 for 20 from the foul line in leading Cherokee to a 49-42 victory over Montgomery last night in a Group 4 state semifinal at Egg Harbor Township. Nicholson, who shot all of his free throws in the second half, finished with 24 points as the Chiefs advanced to the state championship game Sunday at Rutgers against Plainfield, a 47-37 winner over East Orange.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Einstein Healthcare Network said Tuesday that they will jointly provide neonatal, newborn, maternal care, and pediatric emergency services at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, in East Norriton. CHOP, which already has relationships with at least a dozen community hospitals in the region, is expected to start providing neonatal care by the end this year, with expansion expected thereafter. The joint programs will be housed in Einstein's existing Montgomery County facility, but it is not yet clear how much space they will occupy.

Colin Montgomerie was filled with love Thursday for the Wissahickon course of the Philadelphia Cricket Club after opening the Constellation Senior Players Championship with an even-par 70 in gusty winds. "It's so much of a challenge where par every hole means something," he said. "It feels good. It feels great. I love it because this is what majors should be. You should feel like it's a major, and it is. Love it . . . absolutely love it. " Montgomerie, who finished as runnerup five times in major championships before he reached the PGA Tour Champions, showed the type of steady play that has been his trademark - two birdies, two bogeys and 14 pars, hitting 11 fairways and 14 greens.

In his younger days, Colin Montgomerie seemed to be a magnet for verbal abuse by people in the galleries who would come to see him play in a major championship or at the Ryder Cup in the United States and try to get under his skin. The barbs got so bad against the Scotsman during one Ryder Cup singles match in 1999 at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., that Payne Stewart, his opponent, would point out hecklers to security personnel to have them ejected from the course. Golf Digest later handed out "Be Nice to Monty" buttons in time for the 2002 U.S. Open in the hopes of keeping things calm.

FOR A GOOD PORTION of his Hall of Fame career, Scotland's Colin Montgomerie always seemed to be such an easy target. On and off the golf course. From galleries and media alike. Especially for someone who was one of the planet's best ball-strikers for well over a decade. For many it didn't matter, more so on this side of the Atlantic. To them he was "Mrs. Doubtfire," a nickname he openly despised. Can you blame him? Before the 2002 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black on Long Island, a golf magazine famously launched a "Be Nice to Monty" campaign urging the notably loud New York fans to, well, make like it was Ellis Island.

They each have their unique styles. And each brings different strengths to the lacrosse field. But there are certain traits that are distinctly Montgomery. Their first names stand out. Sure, that's the easy one. And, yes, there is a certain logic behind those names. Their mother's name is Mela. Their father's name is Ken. Essentially, the parents were looking for something original. And the rest was history. Mekayla, Mekenzie, and Mekenna Montgomery (not to mention their younger sister Mekelsey, a seventh grader and Red Devil in training)

It was midsummer 2014, another lost season for the Phillies, but that was the least of anyone's concern in that little house in Sea Isle City. Jerry Gehman lay dying. He'd spent most of his 72 years saving lives on that beach in the summer and the rest of the year guiding lives at West Deptford High, a teacher and athletic director. In 1980, he stopped lifeguarding and went to work for the Phils, first as a security guard, later as a bartender, but not in 2014. Colon cancer had ravaged his body.

As a young man growing up in small-town New Jersey, Louis A. Petroni knew early on that he wanted to be a lawyer. His father was among the first in Glassboro's Italian American community to attend college, and he urged his children to prepare for professional careers. Petroni said he never imagined that he would one day ascend to chairman of one of Philadelphia's most venerable law firms, Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads L.L.P. Yet that's exactly what happened earlier this month, when Petroni's colleagues elected him to a two-year term.

Something must explain the persistence of The Philly Fan . In 2004, veteran actor Tom McCarthy first performed in Bruce Graham's one-man homage to Philadelphia sports franchises and their propensity to flub the big game, and this show has regularly reappeared on area stages ever since. But if you listened to the language (or paid attention to the demographics) of McCarthy's unnamed narrator, you'd think he was headed for extinction. The Philly Fan chronicles 50 years of attendance at Connie Mack Stadium, the Vet, the Spectrum, Franklin Field, and later, Lincoln Financial Field and the FU (First Union)

Recently, Earl Rice Jr., an inmate at Graterford Prison, got unexpected news from a relative: A judge had unceremoniously changed his sentence from life without parole to life with parole. Chester County Court Judge James MacElree later explained: "That's what the Supreme Court of the United States said I had to do. I have no discretion whatsoever. " He was referencing the recent opinion in Montgomery v. Louisiana , which made retroactive the court's 2012 decision that automatic life-without-parole sentences for juveniles are unconstitutional.
