The underdog finally had its day. Madison Poplawski and Samantha Tulskie each scored four goals to lead third-seeded Springfield (Delaware County) to a 14-9 victory over top-seeded and heavily favored Radnor in the District 1 girls' lacrosse championship last night at Marple Newtown. The Cougars (21-2), who never trailed, avenged a 15-5 regular-season loss while handing Randor (20-1) its first defeat with a shockingly easy victory. Springfield started fast, scoring five of the first seven goals, then withstood a Radnor rally before finishing off the victory with the final four goals.

For the first time in the '80s, the best football team in the Central League may not be Ridley. Statistically, anyway, Springfield has to be the favorite. After yesterday's 42-7 annihilation of Marple Newtown, the Cougars can boast of the following: They have outscored their first five opponents by a combined score of 156-17. They have held the opposition to a total of 57 yards rushing on 112 carries. Their junior tailback, Chuck Robinson, yesterday rushed for 239 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries, bringing his five-game total to 892 yards and 12 touchdowns.

A decade of dominance is complete. Ridley vanquished host Springfield (Delco), 28-6, yesterday before a crowd of about 5,000 to capture its 10th consecutive Central League championship. The Green Raiders ended Springfield's school-record winning streak at eight games. Despite the success the Cougars enjoyed this year, winning nine games for the first time in their history, they have not defeated the Raiders since 1963. That hex might have been snapped had the Cougars been able to play the second half the way they did the first.

Aly Gormley sat on the track at West Chester Henderson and unlatched the brace from her right leg after Springfield (Delco) defeated Great Valley, 13-8, Tuesday in a PIAA girls' lacrosse semifinal. The Cougars midfielder stuffed the black brace into her backpack. She said it is her "security blanket" after she tore an anterior cruciate ligament in the first round of last season's state playoffs. The ligament is still a bit weak, Gormley said, and the brace protects her lateral movement.

When the Central League title was there for the taking, Springfield pitcher Nicole Zitarelli took it by tossing a no-hitter in a 2-0 win over Marple Newtown on May 7. When the District 1 Class AAA title was there for the taking, Zitarelli stepped forward again with three shutouts in the district playoffs and a gritty four-hit effort in the Cougars' 3-2 victory over Council Rock in the district final Thursday. This was a year for taking. Stacey Zagol was pitching for the University of Virginia, not for a Conestoga team that had won nine straight Central League titles and last year's district championship.

Springfield (Delco) displayed its resiliency for the second straight week, earning a 28-7 Central League win at Lower Merion on Saturday. Despite committing an early turnover in its own zone and another to give Lower Merion an opportunity to tie the game in the second half, Springfield rebounded to emerge victorious. "There's going to be 150 plays. There's going to be lots of good plays, and then we're going to make a mistake here and there," Springfield coach Tom Kline said.

It wasn't the most exciting, and it lacked the scoring punch of the other periods, but the third quarter of its 12-6 win at Springfield (Delco) was perhaps the most emblematic reason that Downingtown East continued to roll Saturday in boys' lacrosse. After building an 8-2 halftime lead in the nonleague game, East (8-3) dominated possession for nearly 11 of the 12 third-quarter minutes, practically camping in Springfield's defensive zone. Oddly, Springfield (7-3) had scored the stanza's first goal, with 1 minute, 17 seconds to go. But East wasted little time in re-extending its lead to six. Junior midfielder Kyle Lauletta netted his third goal of the game by posting up a Springfield defender, like a power forward on the low block, before slinging the ball past goalie Jeremy Cavanaugh just 26 seconds later.

After graduating from Lower Merion High School in Ardmore, she attended the University of Pennsylvania. Mrs. Palmer married businessman Theodore B. Palmer III in 1947, and began a life doing what she loved - being a homemaker and rearing the couple's six children.

The Springfield Delco lacrosse season nearly ended before it ever truly began. At 1-5 in April, the Cougars could have devolved into finger-pointing, blame-shifting, and chaos. Instead, the season ended with the school's first boys' state lacrosse championship since 1992. Saturday afternoon at West Chester East, Springfield Delco held off an at times shorthanded and disjointed La Salle squad, 4-3. "A dream come true," said senior attacker Mike Gerzabek, who led all scorers with three goals.

Springfield Delco goaltender James Spence has grown up with no shortage of willing shooters to help develop his skill set. Perhaps that is why the junior Lehigh recruit has helped the Cougars advance to the PIAA boys' lacrosse championship for the first time since 1992. The threat of inclement weather has pushed Saturday's girls' finale between Radnor and Conestoga to 10 a.m. at West Chester East. In Game 2, Spence will lead the Cougars against Catholic League champion La Salle.

Thrillers abounded at Penncrest on Tuesday as Radnor's girls and Springfield Delco's boys teams earned bids to their PIAA championship games. In Game 1, Radnor (20-6) rallied after an 8-2 deficit to knock off two-time defending champion Garnet Valley, 10-9. In the nightcap, the Cougars (20-7) scored the game's last five goals and held off Strath Haven, 8-5, thanks in large part to the stingy goaltending of junior James Spence. "I've been working all my life for this," said Spence, who finished with 11 saves.

A goaltender's confidence isn't something that can waver when the opposition has a breakaway opportunity late in a lacrosse game. Just a sophomore, Harriton goalie Devin McClain struggled with her confidence earlier in the season. Tuesday afternoon against host Springfield (Delco), however, McClain's poise under pressure helped the Rams to an 8-5 upset victory. "I think this was definitely a confidence booster for us," said McClain, who finished with 13 saves. "It's something we really needed going into the rest of the season.

As the nine-hole hitter for the Springfield (Delco) softball team, Kaylee Lennon usually walks to the plate with her teammates already on base. Which means it's the leftfielder's job to move them or help them across the plate. In the bottom of the third inning Wednesday, Lennon experienced that familiar feeling as she walked to the batter's box with Hannah Sweeney on second base. It was a scoreless game and Lennon got the bunt sign from coach Todd Odgers. She knew that laying it down just right was critical to get her team going.

Springfield edged Conestoga, 38-35. Garnet Valley topped Harriton, 48-40.
