Only one goal is needed in sudden death, but Central Dauphin's Tony Watkins scored two in the Rams' 1-0 upset of Neshaminy last night in a first-round PIAA state Class AAA boys' soccer playoff game at Hatboro-Horsham High. Watkins thought he had the game-winner just 2 minutes, 27 seconds into the first overtime session but was ruled offside on his header that beat Neshaminy goalkeeper Adam Tully. So the 6-foot-2 junior did it again on almost a duplicate play just 1:35 later, and this one counted.

Any parent who heard about the sudden death Saturday of St. Joseph's Prep athlete Ryan Gillyard will be asking the question: Could that happen to my child?
