With a pair of fortuitous bounces, Washington Township made school history Monday by beating Absegami, 1-0, to win the South Jersey Group 4 soccer crown. Eric Jordan scored the Minutemen's lone goal with 15 minutes left in the first half. Jordan raced to a loose ball in front of Absegami goalie Matt McCormick, then deflected McCormick's clearing attempt. Jordan followed the ball behind the keeper and touched it into the empty net. Absegami threatened to tie the game with 10 minutes left in the contest.

Dave Righetti views his latest comeback as a can't-lose situation. "If I get clobbered, everybody expects it. If I do good, then I'm ahead of the game," the lefthander said yesterday after he won again in his remarkable rebirth as a starter, beating the Cleveland Indians, 5-1, and giving the visiting Chicago White Sox their first win in seven games at Jacobs Field. With a steady wind blowing in from right-centerfield, the 36-year-old Righetti (3-0) limited baseball's best-hitting team to one run and six hits in five-plus innings.

It was the first loss for the Patriots (13-1, 9-1), who fell a game behind Colonial Division rival Central Bucks West (13-0, 9-0), a team they will host today. The Falcons (10-1, 10-1) lead the Patriot Division. "Kristin throws hard, and we just think that she and Meredith (Barker)

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.

ISSUE | PA. BUDGET Stymied by the GOP The Republican stopgap budget is yet another gimmick that shortchanges the people of Pennsylvania. Republicans in Harrisburg have become too comfortable with politics as usual, and the stopgap they passed embraces a failed status quo that is preventing Pennsylvania from moving forward. The Republican legislature has passed fiscally irresponsible budgets for four years. We are facing a multibillion-dollar deficit and are trying to recover from numerous credit downgrades.

Camden County investigators, continuing their probe into last month's slaying of an Indian immigrant in Magnolia, have been unable to determine the motive for the crime. Mohammed Kabiruddin, 29, an attendant at the Sunoco gas station at Warwick Road and White Horse Pike, died of a single gunshot wound to the chest on Feb. 23. Authorities said that Kabiruddin arrived at work at 7 a.m. that day and that his body was found on the floor of the cashier's booth by a customer about two hours later.

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - In January, a deputy attorney general and two agents walked into a judge's chambers here with questions. They wanted to discuss a meeting decades earlier that had ended with a "monster" priest being allowed to go free. Back in 1985, Cambria County Judge Patrick T. Kiniry had been a local prosecutor, and met with Bishop James Hogan to discuss a priest suspected of sexually abusing children. As leader of the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese, the bishop had outsize influence in the area.

Update Tuesday 8 a.m.: 18 SEPTA bus routes remain out of service.   Almost two days after the last snowflakes fell, about one-fifth of Philadelphia's 122 bus routes remained suspended. By Monday afternoon, 26 routes were still out of service, largely due to unplowed streets, SEPTA officials said. "These operate in neighborhood areas, and to be able to bring a 40-foot bus down a street requires the street to be relatively cleared," said Manuel Smith, spokesman for the transportation authority.

Henrik Lundqvist remained on one knee for a moment, looking on in almost bewilderment as the Flyers celebrated an early lead. The New York Rangers goaltender was caught on the wrong side of the net as Sean Couturier sent a pass across the crease to Brayden Schenn, who fired it home less than four minutes into the first period. It had all the signs of a long afternoon for Lundqvist, who has long been a thorn in the Flyers' side. Instead, it proved to be a rare miscue. Lundqvist returned to his feet and rallied the Rangers to a 3-2 win. He recorded 34 saves, including a series of key stops late in the third period.

The first time Emma Shimek made her presence known Saturday morning was just six minutes into the contest. The keeper for Villa Maria of Erie made a big save on a shot that would have put the Villa Joseph Marie soccer team up a goal in the state championship. A goal then would have been a game-changer. A momentum shift. A goal that early in the same game between the same teams proved to be the difference last year. The next time Shimek came up big was as the first half was winding down.

The ominous letter from the prosecutor's office was addressed to her grandfather, Albert Lachowicz, but it came to Jennifer Paczan because she was handling his finances. Even five years later, the Pennsylvania woman still recalls her reactions: first worried, then confused, and, finally, outraged on his behalf. The letter was signed by Beaver County District Attorney Anthony J. Berosh, and was on the D.A.'s letterhead. It said Berosh's office had received reports alleging that Lachowicz had engaged in "criminal activity" by "issuing a fraudulent check.

School officials looking into the two-week absence of the brother of a 3-year-old boy who was beaten to death visited an outdated address because the boys' mother did not tell the school that she had moved, officials said Thursday. The boy who was slain and his 6-year-old brother were abused by their mother and her boyfriend, according to police. "The school did the appropriate thing by doing the home visit," said Michael Noone, first assistant district attorney in Chester County.

Before the game, on the sideline, some Hammonton football players said, "There will be no 36 tonight. " They were referring to Clearview's scoring average in the first three games. Since Hammonton had yielded only a third of that total combined in its first four games, it was a pretty good bet that the Blue Devils would make good on their pregame vow. And they did. Continuing a season-long dominance on defense, efficiency on offense, and proficiency on special teams, Hammonton defeated visiting Clearview, 31-6, Friday night in a West Jersey Football League National Division game.

THE NEW YORK Red Bulls' position in the standings doesn't necessarily jump off the page, but a simple glance at the MLS statistical leaderboard serves as a reminder of the club's firepower. Bradley Wright-Phillips and Thierry Henry will arrive at PPL Park tonight as the league's leaders in goals and assists, respectively. Thwarting their efforts will be crucial for the Union (4-8-7) in what interim manager Jim Curtin yesterday deemed "a real swing game" regarding the direction of his team's season.

NEW YORK - If the Flyers are going to win their first-round playoff matchup with the New York Rangers, they are going to have to get their top line untracked. In the Rangers' 4-1 opening-game win Thursday, the Rangers primarily used the fourth line of Brian Boyle, Dominic Moore, and Derek Dorsett - and defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi - to shut down Claude Giroux and his linemates, Scott Hartnell and Jake Voracek. The Giroux line was pointless and combined for just two shots - both by Hartnell.
