Emily Sands watched Tuesday as a teammate tied one of her Westtown scoring records. She probably wasn't too mad about it. Freshman Sarah Oswald finished a cross from Relly Ladner with six minutes remaining as fourth-seeded Westtown rallied for a 3-2 win over visiting No. 5 Agnes Irwin in the PAISAA soccer quarterfinals. It was Oswald's second goal of the game and her 16th of the year, which tied Sands atop Westtown's freshman scoring list. Sands, a senior bound for Penn, scored her 25th goal of the season.

Penn Charter finished this football season an extra point shy of sharing the Inter-Ac title and completing a worst-to-first turnaround. After a 45-17 win against rival Germantown Academy on Saturday, the Quakers' near miss on a title was not lost on its victorious locker room. "I think that was the first thing we said after that win," quarterback Mike Hnatkowsky said. "We were all excited to beat GA. But we got in the locker room and realized that with a couple of breaks, we could be sharing this league.

PENN CHARTER finished this football season just an extra point shy of sharing the Inter-Ac title and completing a worst-to-first turnaround over the last two seasons. After last weekend's 45-17 win against rival Germantown Academy, the Quakers' slim championship shortcoming wasn't lost on their victorious locker room. "I think that was the first thing we said after that win," said Mike "Neeko" Hnatkowsky, our latest Player of the Week. "We were all excited to beat GA. But we got in the locker room and realized that with a couple of breaks, we could be sharing this league.

Sylvester and Bolita Gleplay had their prayers answered 16 years ago when their son was born. Now the aptly named Answered Gleplay is the city's leading rusher and a major problem for Public League defenses. The Bartram sophomore rushed for 305 yards and three touchdowns last week in the Braves' 32-27 AAAA Liberty Division win over Fels. Bartram (7-2, 5-2) will play top-seeded Northeast on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Public League's football playoffs. Long before that his parents fled Civil War in Liberia and headed for Ghana while Bolita was pregnant with their first child.

Before Penn Charter took its field Saturday, the Quakers watched one of college football's elite teams wrap up their own practice on it. The Quakers opened the field to Notre Dame for a morning walk-through and welcomed home starting tackle Mike McGlinchey, a Penn Charter graduate. Penn Charter later showed shades of the Fighting Irish, punching its way to a 42-35 win over Episcopal Academy in an Inter-Ac League game. With his team trailing by one point with less than two minutes remaining, Mike Hnatkowsky ran for the deciding touchdown.

The question after Temple beat Cincinnati, the week after Temple took out Penn State - how crazy was this going to get? Here was your answer on East Market Street, shut down for multiple days for a Saturday morning television show. Say 10 years ago, what would the odds have been that Market Street would one day be intentionally closed to vehicular traffic twice in five weeks - for the Pope and Temple football. Which is the bigger miracle? The traveling ESPN College GameDay show gets a lot of traffic-stopping attention but Saturday is, in fact, gameday, the 9th-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish against undefeated 21st-ranked Temple at Lincoln Financial Field.

Inter-Ac play has not been kind to the Penn Charter football team over the last two years. After the losing the final four games in league play two seasons ago and all five conference games in 2014, the Quakers lost a three-overtime nail-biter to rival Haverford School in their first Inter-Ac contest this season. The Quakers put all that behind them Saturday, snapping a 10-game Inter-Ac losing steak with a 28-14 win over visiting Springside Chestnut Hill. Mike Hnatkowsky and Jake McCain led the way for Penn Charter, each rushing for a pair of touchdowns.

MUHLENBERG WIDE receiver Nick Lamb's selection as the Centennial Conference offensive player of the week might not seem like a big deal. But it is, if you know the backstory. Lamb, a 21-year-old senior majoring in biology, didn't play football in high school. Or as a freshman or sophomore in college. And yet, he's averaging a team-leading 13.7 yards per reception and has caught a team-high five touchdown passes this season. Saturday, in the Mules' 41-13 win at Gettysburg, Lamb caught a career-high 11 passes for 138 yards and three touchdowns.
