ANAHEIM - Zac Rinaldo is close to returning to the Flyers' lineup. Rinaldo skated in his third full practice of the last week yesterday and joined the Flyers on their flight to California. To make room for Rinaldo on the 23-man roster, the Flyers waived forward Chris VandeVelde. VandeVelde and Michael Raffl are the only players on the Flyers' roster on two-way contracts. VandeVelde lasted long enough with the Flyers to require waivers to be sent back down to AHL Adirondack.

Marissa DiMarco will never forget Friday the 13th. On that date one year ago, the Eastern High School junior forward was dribbling the ball toward the Audubon net in the South Jersey Soccer Coaches' Tournament. When she planted her left foot to make a turn, she heard not one, but six dreadful pops. "I knew right away that I blew out my knee," said DiMarco, now a senior and a key member of the Vikings' lineup. "An MRI showed that I tore my ACL [anterior cruciate ligament] completely.

Malvern Preparatory School agreed to return $700,000 received from convicted Ponzi schemer Joseph S. Forte, according to a consent order signed Thursday by Judge Paul S. Diamond of the U.S. District Court in Philadelphia. The settlement ends a heated legal fight between the private Main Line school and the court-appointed receiver who is trying to recoup money for investors who lost $35 million in the fraud by Forte, who is serving a 15-year prison term. The receiver, Marion A. Hecht, had first demanded that Malvern Prep return $900,000 allegedly donated by Forte, a former trustee and volunteer strength coach at the school who pledged $1 million for a strength-and-conditioning center.

Nate Ware, the men's basketball coach at Eastern College, doesn't want the holiday season to rush on by, but at the same time, he seems eager for 1995 to get started. With good reason. His team is 3-3 and tied for first place in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference with a 2-0 mark. But the Eagles' best days appear to be ahead. "We have been absolutely wracked by injuries," Ware said. "The rash of injuries has forced us to start four freshmen and a junior. But after the semester break, help is on the way. " Medical clearance has been given for the return of Jeff Starr, Torre Harrison, Carl Schumm, Russell Maxemow and Marcus Saunders.

The next time Samantha Pawlucy returns to school, her father said, it won't be Charles Carroll High. Pawlucy is at the center of controversy for accusing her math teacher of publicly humiliating her for wearing a Romney/Ryan t-shirt to school Sept. 28. Her father, Richard, said her return to school Tuesday was so uncomfortable that the three high-school children in his home will not return to Carroll. Instead, he said by phone this morning, the family will transfer their children, possibly to a charter school.

Union coach Jim Curtin expressed optimism that forward C.J. Sapong would be available Saturday for the Major League Soccer match against Toronto FC at Talen Energy Stadium. Sapong, who scored the first goal last Saturday in a 4-0 win over the host New England Revolution, was injured late in the first half. He suffered a head injury going up for a ball against defender Jose Goncalves.

Since then, Miller has received a corporate apology. He was invited to bring his business, Teary Eyez, back to the mall to sell a variety of T-shirts again, including the ones that raised the controversy. He also is planning to open a shop in Newport News, Va., where the same corporation owns another mall, Miller said.

With the world watching four years ago, Jerry Sandusky kept silent, opting not to testify in his defense before a jury that labeled him a serial sexual predator. He is to return to the same Centre County, Pa., courtroom Friday in a bid to overturn that conviction. But this time, the former coach has vowed to take the witness stand - and force his victims, prosecutors, and defense lawyers to do the same. Sandusky's lawyer says their testimony will expose the case as a "modern-day Salem witch trial" that he says led to the conviction of an innocent man. The arguments aren't novel, and the odds of success are long.

WASHINGTON - It was a bittersweet homecoming for Union midfielder Chris Pontius. After spending his first seven Major League Soccer seasons with D.C. United, Pontius made his first trip back to his former home and it was so close to being a smashing success. While Pontius earned individual distinction by scoring a goal, he and his teammates felt deflated after letting three points slip away in second half stoppage time. A goal by Steve Birnbaum in the 94th minute gave D.C. United a 2-2 draw with the Union on Saturday at RFK Stadium.

The SS United States won't sail again. Earlier this year, a luxury cruise operator and the nonprofit that owns the long-retired ocean liner docked in South Philadelphia announced an effort to return the aged ship to its former life as a glamorous ocean liner. But after a feasibility study, Crystal Cruises and the SS United States Conservancy have determined that refurbishing the ship to sail would be too challenging, the groups announced Friday. "Unfortunately, the hurdles that would face us when trying to bring a 65-year-old vessel up to modern safety, design, and international regulatory compliance have proven just too great to clear in both a technically and commercially responsible manner," Crystal president and CEO Edie Rodriguez said in a statement.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State sophomore Saquon Barkley is getting a lot of attention this season as one of the nation's top running backs. He also wants to add one more line to his resumé - kickoff returner. The 5-foot-11, 223-pound native of the Lehigh Valley said he got the idea - "100 percent" - from watching Stanford's Christian McCaffrey, who set an NCAA record last season for all-purpose yards. "I'm a fan of the running backs. I like watching them," Barkley said Thursday at Penn State media day. "McCaffrey is a guy who can do it all. Just the type of talent he brought to the return game is something I hope I can maybe bring.

THERE WERE two things most observers took away from Wednesday's Eagles training camp practice: a couple of live, full-contact red-zone periods produced enthusiastic popping and chirping, and if you hadn't known better, you'd have thought Trey Burton was Rob Gronkowski. The hitting got a lot of attention because the Eagles didn't do that in camp during the three years of Chip Kelly. It seemed more unusual than it perhaps should have. Seeing Burton catch and run and twist away from tackles seemed less odd - he's put in two seasons here, played in 31 games, mostly as a special-teams ace - but it was still interesting.
