A nationwide financial services company may be preparing to buy Oxford First Corp. of Philadelphia. It would be the second time in as many years that Oxford has been an acquisition target. New York-based Leucadia National Corp., in a filing dated last Friday, told the Securities and Exchange Commission that it is the lead company in a group of investors that is considering whether to seek control of Oxford through a merger or a tender offer for Oxford's common stock. The group owns 292,972 shares, or 7.84 percent of Oxford.

Up to this point, both Unionville and Oxford have had disapointing seasons. After last weekend's 12-6 loss to Sun Valley, Unionville dropped to 3-7 (2-3 in Del-Val League American Conference games), while the Hornets' 13-6 loss to Interboro dropped them to 4-6 (1-4 in American Conference games). But a win in tomorrow night's game (7:30 p.m. at Oxford) will do something to salve the wounds of a losing season and give the winners something to build on for next year. Unionville won last year's contest, 32-3, and has won four of the last five meetings between the two teams.

Octorara is hoping the third time is the charm, while Oxford is looking to make amends for last year. On Tuesday night in the semifinals of the Southern Chester County League playoffs, top-seeded Oxford beat Unionville, 75-60, behind a balanced attack, and second-seeded Octorara topped Garnet Valley, 71-54. Oxford will host the Braves tonight for the league championship. Octorara finished the regular season with a 10-2 record in league competition. Its only two losses were to the 11-1 Hornets.

For the Wissahickon wrestling team and coach Jeff Madden, the timing was just right. One of the primary advocates for a District 1 team tournament, Madden saw his dream come to fruition last night in Wissahickon's gymnasium when the Trojans toppled West Chester East, 30-15, to capture the inaugural Class AAA championship. "I'd have to say this is my best team ever," said Madden, after an emotional match that was much closer than the score indicated. "We don't have a bunch of kids that have been wrestling since they were 8 years old, we just have a lot of hard workers.

In an increasingly complicated world, there are a few constants. One of them has been that Unionville does not lose a Southern Chester County League wrestling match. But now even that constant is gone. Unionville lost its league opener to Oxford on Wednesday, to break a 35-match unbeaten streak that stretched back to 1985. Oxford rallied from a 5-point deficit going into the 152-pound bout to defeat the visiting Indians, 33-19. "It's been a long time coming," said Oxford coach Scott Gold, whose Hornets last beat the Indians in 1985.

Junior Jill Kulesza's goal with 3 minutes, 30 seconds left to play lifted Oxford to a 1-0 win over Bishop Shanahan yesterday in a Southern Chester County League field hockey game that was delayed more than 30 minutes because the field was soaked. Oxford coach Dave Madden, who saw his team better its overall record to 10-1-2 - they are 7-0-1 in the league - said that if it had not been a league game, they would not have played with the field in the condition that it was. Wednesday night's heavy rains left major puddles on the field, and the field stayed watery until game time.

If Oxford goes on to win its third straight District 23 Big League baseball title, it will be the kind of game mentioned along with phrases like "big win" and "turning point. " Oxford's 11-0 win over West Chester East Side National on Wednesday improved its record to 3-5. And it had all of the earmarks of a big game - nearly flawless defense; explosive, productive offense, and something Oxford had been lacking in the early part of the season - an outstanding pitching effort. Eric Replogle held the East Side National team to just 2 hits while striking out 10 over seven innings.

The calendar page has turned from October to November. Lower Moreland's football fortunes appear to have turned with it. Pat Hogan scored three touchdowns, and three other players added one each as the resurgent Lions, putting together one of their best efforts of the season, rocked Oxford, 42-6, in a nonleague game Friday night. The victory was the Lions' second straight after a mid-season lull that saw them lose three of four during one stretch and three of five for the month of October.

A photo of a singed-but-standing box of Frosted Flakes helped reveal the three-decade-old circumstances of a fatal rowhouse fire in Oxford Circle, a prosecution expert testified Monday. The condition of the box and its position in the kitchen helped determine the fire's path, consultant and former Philadelphia Fire Marshal Thomas Schneiders said, among factors that proved investigators got it right in 1985 when they said the blaze that killed brothers Daniel Dougherty Jr., 4, and John Dougherty, 3, was deliberately set. Their father, Daniel Dougherty, was convicted and sentenced to death for murder and arson in 2000.

An eighth-floor Philadelphia courtroom turned into a time machine Tuesday, reaching back to the early hours of Aug. 24, 1985, when, prosecutors say, Daniel Dougherty killed his two young sons by setting fire to the family home. Old black-and-white photos of the burned Oxford Circle rowhouse were shown on a screen. The boys' babysitter that night - then 9, now a grown woman - testified how she put the children to bed. A now-retired police officer told the jury how he arrived at a horror scene, knowing that children were inside the house and seeing flames "coming out like a blast furnace.

A Delaware County physician who sold OxyContin, Vicodin, Adderall, and other drugs to undercover officers was sentenced Wednesday to 10 to 20 years in prison. Lawrence Wean, 61, of Media, who had an office in the 600 block of Baltimore Pike, Springfield Township, was found guilty in October of writing unlawful prescriptions and filing false insurance claims. Wean had rejected a more lenient plea deal before going to trial. The term imposed by Delaware County Court Judge Anthony Scanlon was steeper than the one requested by the prosecution.

Near the man's body was a bag containing nearly two pounds of what police believe to be marijuana.
