All Dalton Morris needed to do was carry the ball into the net, as Radnor used his first-half goal to turn back visiting Marple Newtown, 1-0, Tuesday in a Central League boys' soccer match.

Also in the Central League: Junior David Baer scored in the 70th minute, and Lower Merion inched past Ridley, 1-0. Baer volleyed in a free-kick pass from Matt Lindheim.

After senior leader Hannah Ross Nussbaum went down with a season-ending ankle injury in a game against Marple Newtown on Dec. 23, a young Radnor girls' basketball team decided to dedicate the season to her. Before and after each game they give a cheer for Nussbaum, who was ordered to bed rest for the injury. The game wasn't two minutes old when she was injured. With the loss of Nussbaum and fact that they are young, the Red Raiders weren't expected to be a major factor in the Central League race.

Radnor won its first Flyers Cup title last night with a 7-2 thumping of Eastern at the Face-Off Circle in Warminster. The victory gave Radnor (24-1) the Class A title. Eastern, located in Voorhees, completed its season 8-9-1. Radnor already had an automatic berth into the Pennsylvania state championship game because Eastern competes in New Jersey. The Red Raiders will play two-time and defending state champion Serra Catholic, of McKeesport, at noon Saturday at Rostraver Ice Gardens in Belle Vernon, Pa., for the Class A state crown.

The Conestoga boys' lacrosse team will play for its third consecutive PIAA championship after beating Radnor, 10-2, in an all-Central League state semifinal Tuesday at Harriton.

At 3 p.m. Saturday at Hersheypark Stadium it will face District 12 and Catholic League champ La Salle, which defeated Mount Lebanon of District 7, 12-3, on Tuesday. "It's great to have a couple more days together as a team," said Pioneers attackman Bradlee Lord, who recorded two goals and two assists against Radnor.

Over the last dozen seasons or so, Radnor's football teams have experienced the pain and frustration of losing game after game. But out of nowhere this season, coach Dave Alwine's Raiders have taken in something brand new: confidence and momentum. For two weeks in a row, Radnor has risen to overcome a fourth-quarter deficit and post a stunning victory. Friday night's victim was Central League foe Marple Newtown, which fell, 14-10. The previous Friday, the Raiders shocked Haverford High by scoring on the game's last play to win, 12-7.

As far as the Radnor girls' basketball team has come this season, a little thing like a nine-point deficit in the third quarter wasn't going to be too much to overcome. Radnor came storming back in the fourth quarter to beat Conestoga, 47-39, on Monday at Marple Newtown and clinch its first-ever Central League title. After starting the season 1-4, the Red Raiders have won 17 of their last 19 games. Not a traditional basketball powerhouse, Radnor has four senior starters - Taylor Quinn, Shannon Quinn, Lindsay Price, and Kyla Crombie - who will be done with their basketball careers when the season ends.

With 80 seconds remaining in the first overtime period, Ryan Molyneaux scored the game-winner. And then, instead of running down the field to celebrate with his goalkeeper, Tyler Afflerbach, he just collapsed. The senior cocaptain of the Souderton soccer team was exhausted, and with good reason. But tired legs weren't enough to stop the midfielder from lifting the Indians over Radnor, 2-1, Tuesday night in the first round of the District 1 Class AAA boys' soccer tournament. "It was a great feeling," Molyneaux said of his sudden-death goal.
