Fresh off an overwhelming 11-0 victory over Central Bucks East in the PIAA Class AAAA state softball quarterfinals, North Penn's Erin Maher was reluctant to talk about the ease with which the Maidens played Thursday. North Penn hit up and down the lineup, scattering shots every which way, and was sound defensively during the game at Spring-Ford. But Maher couldn't help but remember when the hits and the outs were harder to come by. "At the beginning of the year, we felt like nothing could go right," the junior centerfielder said.

TRENTON, N.J. - The next time a flight attendant reminds you that there's no smoking or you witness a teenager getting carded at a liquor store, think of Frank Lautenberg. The liberal Democratic senator from New Jersey left his mark on the everyday lives of millions of Americans, whether they know it or not. In the 1980s, he was a driving force behind the laws that banned smoking on most U.S. flights and made 21 the drinking age in all 50 states. Lautenberg, a multimillionaire businessman who became an accomplished - if often underestimated - politician, died yesterday at a New York hospital after suffering complications from viral pneumonia.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski underwent a fourth surgery on his forearm Monday and doctors believe his previous infection is gone, a league source told ESPN.com. Doctors put new plates in to repair the previously broken left forearm. The estimated timetable for recovery is around 10 weeks, assuming there are no setbacks. Gronkowski originally broke the arm Nov. 18 in a game against the Indianapolis Colts. He returned to action on Dec. 30 in the regular-season finale, then broke the forearm again in the AFC divisional round of the playoffs on Jan. 13 against the Houston Texans.

The Patriots acquired the pick from the Minnesota Vikings, and Ryan joined former Rutgers teammates Devin McCourty and Justin Francis with the Patriots. "I feel great about things," Ryan said in a phone interview. "I did [think New England might take him]. I didn't know when, but I knew they needed a corner. " New England was one of the teams that met with Ryan leading up to the draft.

EVAN HARVEY enjoys no gimmes in battles vs. family members for sports recognition. His brother, Joe, a product of the now-closed Kennedy-Kenrick High in Norristown, is a righthanded pitcher for the University of Pittsburgh. His cousin, Chris Harvey, who skipped his senior season at Germantown Academy to enroll early at Vanderbilt, is a part-time catcher. "You have to bring something to the dinner table," Evan Harvey said, smiling. "You don't want to come home every night and just hear about what those guys did. You want to tell your own stories.

The play wasn't drawn up for Bryce Reid. It was drawn up for his cousin. Tanner Peck, a junior on the Avon Grove lacrosse team, had already scored four goals in the Red Devils' game Saturday at Central Bucks East. He helped his team survive a Patriots run that tied the game late. Early in overtime, Avon Grove coach Eric Jackson wanted the ball in Peck's hands again. But, Jackson said, the Red Devils have "a quick, little freshman that had no choice but to go to the goal. " Reid scored the winner in overtime of a 9-8 victory over the Patriots at Central Bucks West in a matchup of two of the area's best teams.

Caroline Schoenewald was pretty clear about the significance of Friday's softball matchup against North Penn. The second baseman for Central Bucks East knew the energy would be different against a team such as the Maidens, a perennial favorite in the Suburban One League's Continental Conference. Her squad would have to be at the top of its game, Schoenewald said. On Friday afternoon, the Patriots were on top of their game and then some. So was Schoenewald, who had a hand in seven of the Patriots' runs as East defeated the Maidens in a conference showdown, 11-3, at North Penn.

The play is called "Drexel. " Emily Scullin, a sophomore on the Great Valley girls' lacrosse team, flips the ball to a teammate to the left of the net as the Patriots get into position for their go-to offensive play. The ball is then moved behind the net, where a Patriot waits to pass to Scullin, whose job it is to elude a defender and get in position to score. More often than not, Scullin said, the play results in a goal. Scullin used the play to score the fifth of her six goals in host Great Valley's 14-5 nonleague win Saturday over Hatboro-Horsham.
