The Overbrook Golf Club team of brothers Andy and Ray Thompson won the Bud Lewis Invitational Golf tournament yesterday at the Manufacturers Golf and Country Club by defeating two other pairs on the first playoff hole. Andy Thompson, a former Philadelphia amateur champion, decided the playoff by scoring a birdie on the first extra hole. The Thompsons defeated Jim Frazer and Spike Smith of Atlantic City Country Club and Jim Kania of Overbrook and Blaise Giroso of Brandywine, all of whom had finished with 67s.

On the seventh play of yesterday's first offensive series, Camden High quarterback Kyle Clark dropped back and lofted a perfect fourth-down pass to wide-open Ryan Renolds in the Overbrook end zone. One problem. Renolds dropped the ball. "When I saw that," Camden coach Bill Simpson said after the game was history, I thought it was going to be one of those days where nothing goes right. " But Simpson's fears weren't realized. Camden, taking advantage of its superior size, remained unbeaten as it ground out a 12-6 Olympic Conference American Division victory at Overbrook, which suffered its first on-the-field loss of the season.

Camden High has been something of a mystery football team in the season's first month. The Panthers have a new coach in Nelson Hayspell, who never before has worked in this area. They had lost most of last year's team to graduation. They opened their season in Bayonne, 100 miles from home. And last week's home opener, a 7-0 loss to Washington Township, was played after a drenching rain that made it difficult to judge any team's quality. But there's no mystery anymore. Camden emerged as a strong Olympic Conference, American Division contender yesterday morning, shutting out host Overbrook, 20-0, in Pine Hill.

Ameer Richardson saw it this summer. "The guys on the offensive line were working so hard in the weight room," Richardson said. "I knew they would be ready. " The Collingswood offensive line cleared the way for Richardson to start his senior season with a bang. Richardson, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound running back, gained 241 yards and scored all four touchdowns as Collingswood defeated Overbrook, 28-0, in a Colonial Conference Liberty Division game. "He's grown up," Collingswood coach Bob Barikian said of Richardson, a three-year starter at running back.

The on-court proceedings? Did you have to ask? Yesterday, as West Philadelphia all-timers Gene Banks and Clarence Tillman had their numbers retired, the Speedboys squashed visiting Overbrook, 57-32, in a Public League game that never really became one. "Brook committed 10 more turnovers (23-13) and allowed West to score eight rebound baskets, while getting none of its own. "It was exciting playing today," said 6-7 West center Mik Kilgore, who collected 14 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, 6 steals and 3 blocked shots.

Cardinal O'Hara coach Buddy Gardler is not one to get carried away about nonleague victories, particularly in light of last season. That's when the Lions streaked to an 8-1 nonleague start, but got squeezed out of the playoffs when push came to shove in the Catholic League's Southern Division. Starting off this season with two wins, Friday against Overbrook at home and yesterday at Archbishop Wood, won't change Gardler's approach. "The emphasis in these early games has to be defense and rebounding," Gardler said.

Overbrook football coach Harvey Miller came into the season with the unenviable task of replacing running back Ron Dayne. Dayne, now a star at the University of Wisconsin, accumulated 1,566 yards and 25 touchdowns with a combination of size (5-10, 255 pounds) and speed to lead in the Rams to an 8-1 record. This year, Miller doesn't have to rely on one player to carry the load. Junior backs Imion Powell and Raheem Covington, and quarterback Aron Coleman, have made the transition a whole lot easier.

Overbrook girls' basketball coach Jim Puderbach could only laugh after his team knocked off Sterling on Thursday, 56-54. "Talk about getting the monkey off our back," the coach said. By upsetting The Inquirer's fifth-ranked team, the Lady Rams defeated a top-5 ranked team for the first time in 29 years. "I've been here since 1991, so this is even new to me," Puderbach said. The Colonial Conference win almost slipped away, as Sterling made a strong push in the final quarter and eventually took the lead.

ON THE SURFACE, business appears to be good in the city's Overbrook Park neighborhood, close to where Haverford Avenue crosses City Avenue. Here, kosher food is as plentiful as fast food. As consumers shop for cellphones and clothing, groceries and beauty supplies, they see no hint of the violent incident that struck this urban strip last August. Step inside Best Cake Kosher Bakery, and just about the only reminder of the terror is a circular scar on the throat of owner Zivka "Ziza" Djordjevic.

Hundreds of people packed a conference Saturday at Temple University on the "black radical tradition," tapping into the national unrest over police shootings and bringing support to the burgeoning Black Lives Matter movement. In a part of the city that was a hotbed of black radicalism in the 1960s, speakers decried corporate power, expensive prescription drugs, mistreatment of women, and underfunded Philadelphia public schools. "So now it's time to switch from the classroom to protesting in the street," thundered Pamela Whitney Williams, the pastor of the Ark of Refuge Tabernacle in Overbrook, during an afternoon panel on black women.
