Upper Dublin gave up nearly 22 points per game last season, but the Flying Cardinals' defense came up big in its Suburban One American Conference football opener against visiting Pennridge Friday night. Junior tailback Rick Johns rushed for two touchdowns and gained 128 yards while Upper Dublin's defense refused to allow the Rams to break a big play in a 12-6 victory. It was the first win in an opener for Upper Dublin since 1992, when the Cardinals downed Springfield, 14-9.

After Plymouth Whitemarsh had posted its biggest win of the season, a 28-23 triumph over Upper Dublin on Friday night, senior quarterback Connor Hanlon hurried off the field to celebrate with family members.

In his days with the Horsham Hawks youth football organization, there were times when Josh Mastromatto didn't make weight on game day. Not from tipping the scale but from getting a lower-than-mandated reading. Fortunately for Mastromatto, a 5-foot-6, 160-pound senior running back and cornerback for Upper Dublin, there are no weight guidelines for high school football. "With my size, I've always been underestimated in sports," he said. "But I never wanted that to hold me back.

Dan Jacobson says the potential is there for Upper Dublin to duplicate or improve on its 2012 baseball success, when it went 18-7 and earned a berth in the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament.

" With Jacobson scattering three singles and fanning 11 in a complete game, the host Cardinals christened their newly renovated field by turning back Upper Moreland, 3-2, Thursday in a Suburban One League American Conference matchup.

They are now accountants, university administrators, salespeople and homemakers, but 10 years ago they comprised the two best basketball teams in District 1. Coming together again after a decade - some a few pounds heavier, some with a little gray in their hair, all in suits and dresses instead of their Upper Dublin uniforms - the members of the 1984-1985 District 1 boys' and girls' championship basketball teams were honored Friday. Ten years later, some of those 23 players perhaps are just beginning to realize that they accomplished what no two other basketball teams in District 1 history have ever done - they won both the boys' and girls' Class AAAA title in the same year.

"Square up. Square up. Square up. " That's the phrase Keyen Green is used to hearing from Phil-Mont Christian girls' basketball coach Bill DeHeer. So much so that it has been drilled into her head. The 6-foot junior forward is strong, and the physicality she brings to each game makes it hard for most opponents to guard her. But, Green said, she struggled last year with controlling her body and put up what she calls "crazy shots. " Green took what her coach has been preaching and put it into practice Saturday, propelling the Falcons to a 58-37 victory over Faith Christian at Upper Dublin to capture their second straight District 1 Class A title.
