Having clinched its fifth straight Catholic League Southern Division boys' soccer championship, Roman Catholic High has set its sights on a loftier achievement: bringing home the overall league title. To do so, the Cahillites won't have to merely overcome some talented Northern Division teams. They'll have to overcome history. Northern Division teams own the Catholic League playoffs. Only one Southern Division team - Cardinal O'Hara in 1982 - has won the championship since the inaugural league title match in 1956.

NOT SURPRISINGLY, Pete Rose is still hellbent on getting back into baseball. What is surprising - at least to us - is that he's now 70 years old. Where has the time gone? Rose, a member of Phillies' 1980 World Series championship team, was the keynote speaker Saturday at an event sponsored by the Ohio Justice & Policy Center in Cincinnati. The all-time hits leader was banned from the game for life in 1989 for betting on baseball games while managing the Reds. He has wanted back in ever since.

Chris Fagan, a senior basketball and football star at Father Judge High School, was that little kid at the playground - the one who used to wait and watch all the "big guys" throw the ball around the court. He'd kill a whole Saturday afternoon just waiting for the chance to get into the game. But Fagan is a Big Guy himself these days, and on Saturday afternoon he was all action. There was no waiting or watching as the young star went out and played in the All-Catholic basketball game in the afternoon and then drove over to play in the All-City All-Star football game - all in a matter of hours.

For the last six seasons, Cardinal Dougherty girls' basketball coach Mary McDonald had shared the bench with assistant Jim Munn. But last night the two coaches found themselves on opposing benches. Munn, who started at Dougherty with McDonald, moved over to Kennedy-Kenrick during the off-season. Munn got a "welcome back" banner from Dougherty and an embrace from McDonald before the game. Then he watched the Cardinals hand his Wolverines a 64-41 whipping in their Catholic League North Division game.

Garnet Valley's Greg Del Collo knocked in six runs and Sun Valley's Grant Gatchell pitched an eight-hitter as Delco West routed Prince Georges County (Md.), 14-2, to sweep a doubleheader yesterday and capture the Babe Ruth 16-year-old Middle Atlantic Region tournament's Southern Division championship. Delco won the first game, 4-1, as Malvern Prep's Ben Davis held Prince Georges, which went into the game undefeated, to five hits and contributed a game-winning two-run single. Going into yesterday's play, Prince Georges needed just one victory at LeRoy Hill Field to win the title in the five-team, double-elimination tournament.

Roman Catholic's Chris Nottis homered and Danny Lauer singled home a run in the bottom of the seventh inning yesterday as the Cahillites rallied for a 6-5 win over St. John Neumann in the Catholic League Southern Division championship game at La Salle University.

Neumann, which finished second to Roman in the regular season, had taken a 5-4 lead in the top of the sixth.

This was supposed to be the year Zep Greto of St. James dominated the Catholic League South Division. But a series of injuries - and a freshman named Brendan Benner from Monsignor Bonner - have contributed to a disappointing season for the Bulldogs' senior star. But on Wednesday, Greto proved that a week of injury-free training could lead him back to the league's elite when he edged Benner by a step at the South Division Championships at Belmont Plateau. In addition, Greto set a school record with a time of 16 minutes and 42 seconds.

Fran Lorenzo comes from a reasonably long line of Bishop McDevitt football players. He also comes from short stock. Lorenzo's brothers - Mike (class of '79), Rob ('84) and Steve ('85) - all were starting players for the Lancers. But you had to look at darn near waist level to find them. Coach Pat Manzi is fond of saying that Steve, a two-year defensive back starter, "was the smallest player in the history of the Catholic League. " Not according to Steve's senior-season program listing (5-7, 150)

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - For many of the 59 players participating in the 2013 South Atlantic All-Star Game this week, it was their first opportunity to show their skills on a big stage. Four players from the Phillies' Class A Lakewood BlueClaws represented their home team Tuesday at FirstEnergy Park. Following a nearly 3-hour rain delay, the Northern Division defeated the Southern Division, 2-1, in the 34th meeting between the teams. Catcher Chace Numata and relief pitchers Yoel Mecias, Steven Inch and Delvi Francisco were the four Phillies prospects chosen to represent the North.

The girls' basketball playoff picture in the Catholic League Northern Division came into sharper focus last night, although the final product won't be known until today. Senior Kristin Teklinski connected on a 12-foot jump shot with 1 minute, 36 seconds left in the second overtime to lift St. Hubert to a riveting, 50-48 victory over Archbishop Ryan. That triumph, accomplished before an enthusiastic crowd of 400 in Hubert's cozy gymnasium, coupled with Archbishop Wood's 44-38 win at Conwell-Egan, left the Vikings and Bambies tied for first place in the division standings with 10-2 records.

The Catholic League season begins tonight. In football, power resides in the Northern Division. In basketball, there has been a power shortage in the Northern Division for a long time. Father Judge's championship last season was only the third by a Northern team in 21 years. But in the first month of this season, La Salle (9-2), Archbishop Wood (8-3) and Judge (8-3) all had more preseason victories than any Southern Division team. The wins by La Salle and Judge might have been expected.

La Salle reserve quarterback Gabe Marabella was sitting on the bench Saturday, staring at the turf, when the call came 2 minutes, 52 seconds into the third period. Father Judge had just driven down the field and scored for the first time, and even though the visiting Explorers had a 24-7 lead, the momentum seemed to have shifted to the opposition rapidly. Marabella took over the controls for starter Chris Pennington, who moved to tailback, and the sophomore proved not only that he was ready, but that La Salle seems to have an unending supply of capable quarterbacks.

The championship game will be played at 4 p.m. tomorrow at La Salle University. The Eagles beat Wood twice during the regular season.

They have met in the Catholic League semifinals the last two seasons, but this year Roman Catholic and Archbishop Carroll will play for the league championship. With victories last night in the semifinals at the Palestra, Carroll and Roman advanced to tomorrow's 8:30 p.m. title game. The championship meeting became a possibility when the league changed its playoff format so that teams crossed divisions in the semifinals. Carroll and Roman, both of whom play in the Southern Division, beat Northern Division teams last night.
