Louis Morales (right) yesterday made an offhand remark that an uncle was quite the handball player. His sons said they weren't too bad, either. So he said show me your stuff. Above is son Louis Morales, 16. Below, Morales serves to sons Jesus Cruz, 14, Louis, 16, and Miguel, 13. The tale played out yesterday on Tusculum Street near Kensington Avenue.

WHEN I WAS a kid in the '70s, there was nothing more special than going to a Flyers game at the Spectrum. Many of my friends' parents had season tickets, and most of them were just like my parents - working-class folks. Whenever I see a Flyers game on TV now, you hardly ever see any kids in the audience, and if you do, their parents are clearly part of the platinum Rolex crowd. I doubt the Flyers, Ed Snider, Bobby Clarke or even the nouveau-riche millionaire-fans who attend games these days care very much about the middle-class folks who supported the team for its first 20-25 years.

Ryan Stover's 43-yard scamper, with the savvy quarterback avoiding a sack and then dodging several would-be tacklers, gave Upper Dublin a 14-7 lead early in the third quarter. That sensational run gave his squad a real shot at stunning Allentown's Parkland and earning a berth in next weekend's PIAA Class AAAA state final at Hersheypark Stadium. But the Trojans, gradually wearing down the smaller Cardinals in the trenches, responded with a long scoring drive and added two more touchdowns, capitalizing on an interception and safety, to claim a 30-14 semifinal victory Saturday afternoon.

RE "Incumbents, as usual, have upper hand" (April 20): This article implied that Carol Ann Campbell is not working as hard as the other new members of City Council, and not as active as her two challengers. Nothing could be further from the truth! For more than 40 years, as a community activist, committeewoman and ward leader, Councilwoman Campbell has been in the forefront of constituent services. Whether working on behalf of senior citizens or ensuring that neighborhood playgounds are safe havens for children, Councilwoman Campbell has always been one of the most diligent public servants in the city.

Jeff Ratcliffe scored his fourth goal late in the fourth quarter to help the Wings edge the Minnesota Swarm, 18-17, yesterday in a National Lacrosse League game. "We had a tough weekend but got the job done here," said Lindsay Sanderson, general manager and coach of the Wings, who suffered a 14-13 overtime loss to Rochester on Friday night. Minnesota (2-6) had jumped to a 4-2 lead after the first quarter, but the Wings closed to within a point, at 8-7, before the half. Andrew Burkholder's second goal of the game gained an 8-8 tie for the Wings (3-5)

A 43-year-old South Jersey man was held on $200,000 cash bail yesterday after he was arraigned in Camden County Superior Court on charges that he murdered his roommate Sunday night in Lindenwold. James D. Roberts, a heavyset man with graying hair, said virtually nothing during the noontime proceeding before Superior Court Judge Isaiah Steinberg at the Hall of Justice in Camden. Roberts said he needed to be represented by a court-appointed lawyer, and Marcia Soast, an assistant Camden County public efender, said she believed she would represent him. Assistant Camden County Prosecutor Gregory Smith told the court that Roberts and the victim, William Barrett, a man in his mid-40s, lived in the same unit at the Coachman Manor Apartments in Lindenwold.

  Line: Saints by 6 The skinny: New Orleans appears to have the upper hand against San Francisco. The Saints already are clicking, and they've won the last five matchups with the Niners, who will try to get back on track following a dismal 31-6 season-opening loss at Seattle and a week of questions about their offense. Quarterback Alex Smith had problems getting the plays into his ear on time before the headset cut off with 15 seconds on the play clock. The Niners didn't score a touchdown against Seattle and couldn't score at all in the second half.

Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash will be named the NBA's most valuable player for the second year in a row, the Arizona Republic reported yesterday. The newspaper cited a league source familiar with the voting, but said the official announcement may not come for 2 weeks. The NBA did not comment on the report, posted on the Republic's Web site yesterday. Nash would become the 10th player to win the award in consecutive seasons. Kobe Bryant, another MVP contender, got the upper hand last night when his Los Angeles Lakers beat the host Suns, 99-93, to tie their best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series at 1-1. Bryant had 29 points, 10 rebounds and five assists.

NEW YORK - The puck squirted through Hal Gill's legs and Dominic Moore spun the Flyers' brute around like a New York City subway turnstile before beating Steve Mason on a breakaway. As the 18,006 inside Madison Square Garden furiously waved their white rally towels to celebrate the Rangers' three-goal, second-period lead, Gill skated toward the Flyers' bench while fingers waggled at him 90 miles away in Philadelphia. Really, though, it was Braydon Coburn's panicked pass - serving as the grenade in Gill's skates - that perfectly summed up the Flyers' maddening, 4-2 loss to the Rangers yesterday afternoon.

A BIG, RED coffee mug sits on the desk of state Attorney General Kathleen Kane bearing the message: "Keep Calm and Carry On. " I notice it during a news conference in her office late last week as Kane, seated at a long table across the room, works on regaining the upper hand in the complex, controversial Philadelphia sting case. Three things strike me: * Kane's prior news conference on the case was in a large media room down the hall, not her inner sanctum; this is clearly a venue choice suggesting just who's boss.

ST. LOUIS - Truth is, there is more than one way to build a World Series contender in the new economic landscape of major league baseball. A quick look at the Cardinals' 4-1 dispatching of the Phillies at Busch Stadium last night might have tempted you to conclude otherwise, but the easy narrative is not always the proper one. Or, at least, not the complete one. Without a doubt, the method behind the Cardinals' considerable success this season...

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I don't know why I got married. Probably a swirl of low self- esteem, anxiety, and the desire to prove my mother wrong about my boyfriend caused me to pressure him to propose. What I'm left with is a husband who doesn't love me and the feeling I made a terrible mistake. I don't know how much effort to put into making this work versus cutting my losses. He isn't a bad person, but we don't make each other particularly happy, and this isn't a relationship where I feel treasured.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Quarterback Matt McGloin has started the last two games for Penn State and emerged as the signal-caller coach Joe Paterno counts on late in games. Despite that, Paterno maintains that Rob Bolden will continue to rotate with McGloin. The No. 16 Nittany Lions (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten Conference) are off Saturday before hosting Nebraska on Nov. 12. Bolden, who started the first seven games, played the second quarter in the team's 10-7 win over Illinois on Saturday.

Fighting to keep their slim playoff hopes alive, the Soul held the upper hand against favored Arizona for most of Saturday night's Arena Football League game. But the desperate hosts wilted down the stretch and the Rattlers, finding the end zone with six seconds to play, managed a 55-54 nonconference victory in front of 9,710 at the Wells Fargo Center. The difference was Nick Davila's 1-yard touchdown toss to 6-foot-4, 315-pound lineman John Booker. Jon Striefsky's 44-yard field-goal try at the buzzer was considerably left of the mark.

"City basketball," Jerome Allen said, a little wistfully. "Big Five. It's something that guys who aren't from this area, by the time they are seniors, they appreciate that history and the tradition. " There can be a difference between appreciating it and liking it, however, and during Allen's playing career, he probably liked the local setup a lot better than the current Penn seniors he is coaching. "We've had some tough losses," Penn forward Jack Eggleston said. "I wouldn't say any are tougher than any other ones.

A Reading physician with a fraction of the campaign cash of his opponent officially declared victory Wednesday in the Democratic primary in the Sixth Congressional District, a race won by 672 votes, according to unofficial results. Manan Trivedi, 35, of Birdsboro, Berks County, beat Doug Pike, a former Inquirer editorial writer who had seven times more cash on hand in the campaign's final weeks. Pike conceded to Trivedi after determining that additional absentee, military, and provisional ballots would not alter the outcome.
