Since a 1-0 loss to Downingtown on Sept. 22, the Villa Joseph Marie soccer team has won eight consecutive games. Longtime coach John McOwen attributed the winning streak to lineup changes that led to increased scoring. "I've moved several girls to different positions," McOwen said. "I had some pieces of the puzzle in the wrong spots. " The Jems have averaged more than three goals in their last eight games, winning by a combined score of 28-4. They improved to 9-1 in Athletic Association of Catholic Academies action, with shutout wins last week over Mount St. Joseph (6-0)

There was a noticeable chill as the sky above the La Salle University soccer field grew dark and ominous-looking clouds blotted out the late afternoon sun. It was Halloween eve and this fittingly sinister scene offered the perfect backdrop for something extraordinary to take place. But when the Nazareth Academy coaching staff reached deep into its bag of tricks, there was no treat to be found as the underdog Pandas lost the Catholic Academies League girls' soccer championship, 4-2, to Villa Joseph Marie.

Sometimes, Allie Trzaska catches herself dribbling in the midfield. A senior on the fourth-ranked Villa Joseph Marie soccer team, Trzaska knows that that part of the field isn't always the best place to keep the ball to yourself. It's all about timing, she says, timing and knowing the best moment to distribute to a teammate. With her team up by a goal against top-ranked Archbishop Ryan just eight minutes into the second half, the midfielder had the ball at her feet and looked up to see the edge of the 18-yard line.

Lisa Healey and Peg Francano have helped make Villa Joseph Marie softball coach Paul Dando's first season a little easier. "Right from the start, they have shown leadership ability," Dando said of the junior co-captains. "Before practice, they organize things and have the girls stretching. They are very supportive of the younger girls. They are just great to have around. " Healey and Francano are equally quick to praise Dando. "I'm impressed with our coaching this year," Healey said.

Nora Breen, hands on hips and standing motionless at the midfield stripe of the La Salle University soccer field, quietly counted down the final seconds of yesterday's Catholic Academies League girls' soccer title match. With two goals and two assists, Breen - a senior sweeper for Villa Joseph Marie - had earned the right to step back and admire the waning moments of the Jems' 5-0 championship game victory over St. Basil's Academy. "I was relaxing, thinking that all the hard work we had put in during the season had finally paid off," Breen said.
