Woodbury, one of the oldest names in South Jersey football, has become one of the most glamorous. The current era of Woodbury football matches - or exceeds - the fabled Jim Combs era of the late 1950s and early '60s. In a school that goes back to the dawn of football in South Jersey, there have been two near-pristine eras: the Combs era, which ended in 1963, and the Larry Ginsburg era, which ended last month. As the 1990 season dawns, rookie head coach Jim Boyd is fitting effortlessly into the aura of invincibility surrounding Woodbury's 23-game winning streak, one that is only eight games short of the all-time area record.

Haverford High coach Paul Bogosian recalls with delight the manner in which the Fords last won the Central League baseball title, in 1989. He remembers getting off to a 10-0 start, then finishing on top of the other nine teams with a final 15-3 mark. But this season, Bogosian does not know whether to be delighted or slightly cautious. With a pair of league wins last week, the Fords improved to 5-0, and there are traces of that 1989 season. But there are also traces of seasons in between, when winning streaks in the league would come and ultimately go. Or like last season, when the streak would be untimely.

OLEAN, N.Y. - La Salle saw its five-game winning streak come to an end Wednesday night with a 66-51 loss to St. Bonaventure at the Reilly Center. Treacherous winter weather prevented the team from arriving in Olean until 2 a.m. Wednesday. The game didn't go any smoother for La Salle (11-7, 3-1 Atlantic Ten). The second half was especially challenging for the Explorers. First, the Bonnies (12-7, 2-3) started to pull away. And once La Salle fell behind, it couldn't score to come back.

When it was all over, Episcopal Academy coach Dan Dougherty looked like his players: tired and disappointed. The Penn Charter Quakers put an end to the Churchmen's marvelous 33-game winning streak Friday night at Penn Charter with a 60-57 win. It was Dougherty's longest winning streak in his three decades as a coach and the longest winning streak in the history of Episcopal basketball. "If you stay in this racket long enough," Dougherty said, "you know that streaks are always going to come to an end. We tried our best, we played a good game.

The Hill School recently put a chink in the armor of the near-indomitable Haverford School squash team, winning 4-3 to break the Fords' streak of 83 consecutive victories against high school teams. "That streak went a full six years," said George Haines, Fords coach from 1977 until last winter. "Eighty-three matches in a row in anything is hard to do. " Bill Strong, who took over the coaching duties this season, found something positive about the end of the streak, which did not include matches against college teams.

The La Salle women's soccer squad extended its 19-game Atlantic Ten win streak after it won in double overtime, 1-0, over Fordham at home on Friday. The streak dates back to Oct. 19, 2010, and spans more than two seasons. Senior midfielder Renee Washington (Pennington Prep) netted her sixth goal of the season to win the game, increasing her career total to 37. She is three goals shy of La Salle's all-time record set by Amy Schneider (1999-02). The Explorers, 8-2-1, are ranked No. 1 in the regional rankings.

Bristol's first-round PIAA Class AA playoff game on Saturday pitted a team on a hot streak against one with the state's longest winning streak. Fittingly, the game was played in spurts, with Bristol and defending state champion Carbondale alternating offensive hot streaks. But Carbondale, which maintained a slight edge throughout the game, held on for a 68-57 victory and pushed its PIAA Class AA-record winning streak to 56 games, dating back to last season. "We were right with them the whole game," said Bristol senior forward Jason Eddings.

John Peters knows about winning streaks. He coached the Cardinal O'Hara girls' tennis team to 95 straight Catholic League wins from 1971 to 1980 and coached against an Archbishop Ryan boys' tennis team that lugged a 47-match winning streak into the Catholic League final last Thursday. Peters made sure his O'Hara players knew about winning streaks - and the pressures that accompany them - before the Lions battled the Raiders for the league title at Temple University. "I harped on it at practice," Peters said.

A successful road trip might have been just what North Catholic needed to get its engines revving again. "Now that we've taken one step, we're going to keep taking one step at a time - and go as far as we can," coach Joe Rapczynski said after the Falcons (3-3) broke a three-game losing streak by defeating Archbishop Curley, 62-55, in a nonleague game Sunday in Baltimore. It was no easy task to play an unknown team such as Curley so far away from home, Rapczynski said. But the Falcons comfortably hurdled each of those obstacles to post a morale-boosting victory.

Haverford School, spurred by one of the region's top ballcarriers, has won 21 consecutive games. A quick-strike Perkiomen Valley offense, featuring one of the area's best pass-catch duos, is averaging 42 points per game. The Fords, ranked No. 9 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by the Inquirer, will visit the No. 8 Vikings in an intriguing nonleague matchup at 7 p.m. Friday in Graterford. Quarterback Stephen Sturm and wide receiver Justin Jaworski have combined for nearly 700 yards and nine touchdowns through the air in PV's 3-0 start.

MIAMI - Freddy Galvis sat in a Philadelphia barbershop for four hours last week as his hair - which he let blossom all season into an Afro - was braided into dreadlocks. The shortstop was stuck in a wicked slump. Perhaps it was time for a change. And it was the new-look Galvis who sparked a 6-2 win over the Miami Marlins on Monday afternoon. The Phillies started their seven-game road trip with a win after losing six straight at home. They looked like they were on their way to another listless loss until Galvis hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning.

C.J. Sapong returned to action in extreme weather conditions last Saturday after more than a month off, but the Union forward isn't complaining. Competing in his first game since suffering a sprained right ankle in a 3-2 win over visiting Columbus on June 1, Sapong came off the bench in the 63rd minute during that 1-0 Major League Soccer loss at Houston against the Dynamo. The temperature for the game was approaching 100 degrees, but that was fine with Sapong. "It was definitely different," Sapong said.

Union coach Jim Curtin stated Wednesday that the team hasn't lost two games in a row this season. While technically that is correct, the Union are riding a two-game losing streak in Major League Soccer. It's the first blip in an otherwise surprisingly successful season. Curtin is looking to end that streak when the Union host D.C. United in a key Eastern Conference game Saturday at Talen Energy Stadium. The Union (7-6-5, 26 points) are in second place in the Eastern Conference, behind New York City FC, while D.C. United (5-6-6, 21 points)

MINNEAPOLIS - As Jerad Eickhoff's pitch count mounted Thursday afternoon, every ball he threw carried the weight of a nine-game losing streak and a drained group of pitchers. A rebuilding process guarantees trying times, moments for a young player to separate himself, and that is what Eickhoff has done. The Phillies avoided their worst losing streak in 17 years with a 7-3 win over Minnesota. They have won three of their last 17 games, and Eickhoff was the winning pitcher all three times.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My boyfriend is very laid-back. Nothing bothers him. On the other hand, I get in a tizzy about certain things - I have a jealous streak, and I pay close attention to our relationship. For example, I'll bring it up if we're not spending enough time together, getting intimate often enough, etc. He just doesn't think or care about these types of things. He goes with the flow. How can I stop worrying about things and regain my power and composure when these types of issues arise?

Each of the last three seasons has ended the same way for Syracuse: a loss to Maryland on Memorial Day weekend.

Top seed Maryland (21-0, 5-0 Big Ten) enters undefeated and in search of its third consecutive national title. Four seed Syracuse (19-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast)

Frankford's baseball team did not enjoy a smooth beginning to the season. "We had to battle through some injury and discipline issues," ninth-year skipper Juan Namnun said. "It hurt, but we're better for it now. " Namnun and the slow-starting Pioneers have rebounded and are two victories away from their first Public League title since 2013 and ninth in the last 14 seasons. "We haven't had the success we're accustomed to in the last couple of years," Namnun said. "We're happy to be in a position to get back on top. " Frankford (10-5)
