Nearly two decades of frustration bounced away on Saturday afternoon. But that was not Jarett Nast's intent when he booted the ball from near midfield in the second overtime of Roman Catholic's 2-1 win over La Salle in a Catholic League boys' soccer semifinal at Archbishop Ryan. The senior defender looped the ball into the box, hoping it would find a teammate. It took a high hop. A lucky bounce, Nast said. The La Salle goalie had come out too soon. He could only watch as the ball sprang over his head and into the net. The 45-yard goal triggered a frantic celebration.

Carli Lloyd was just 40 minutes from Delran High School, where the midfielder first started to make a name for herself by playing soccer. She was 85 miles from Yurcak Field at Rutgers, where Lloyd played in college and was last year inducted into the Hall of Distinguished Alumni. And 38 miles away is the Universal Soccer Academy in Lumberton, where the 32-year old has trained for years with James Galanis. For all intents and purposes, PPL Park in Chester is like a home field for Lloyd.

Lenape girls' soccer coach Kevin Meder says balance is the secret of his team's success. That makes sense, because no team in any sport in South Jersey has walked across the high wire with the astounding aplomb of the Indians. After Friday's first-round victory over Cinnaminson, Lenape is 28-0-1 in its last 29 games in the South Jersey Soccer Coaches Association tournament. The Indians have won seven titles in a row. Lenape also is 25-0 since 2007 in the South Jersey Group 4 tournament.

On the final day of an upset-filled Catholic League boys' soccer season, Archbishop Ryan appeared primed to pull one last stunner. Spencer Patton had other plans.

Elsewhere in the Catholic League: Father Judge secured second place with a 2-1 victory over visiting Conwell-Egan, thanks to Kevin Ceno's goal with three minutes remaining.

Marissa Topolski got another shot. The senior forward's initial kick was blocked, but she recovered and put in the rebound with three minutes left in overtime to give Lenape girls, ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, a 2-1 soccer victory at No. 6 Cherokee in an Olympic American matchup Monday. The victory gave Kevin Meder the 200th win of his career. Meder said he was unaware of closing in on the milestone. "It's a tribute to the players we've had over the last 10 years," Meder said.

As South Jersey soccer recruits go, Tziarra King is a bit against the grain. She isn't an Olympic Development player or even a high-level club player. She isn't on one of the area's perennial powers, and she has never won a conference or state championship. A Winslow resident her entire life, King will tell you her town doesn't exactly have an overwhelming soccer culture. But King started playing the sport when she was 4 years old. And she loved it. And ever since, that's really all that mattered.
