    A Golden opportunity

    Ryan football not panicking after loss to La Salle

    As the blowout victories continued to mount in the first month of the season, so too did the confidence and expectations of Archbishop Ryan football supporters.


    A few fresh legs

    Guided by a fusion of veteran talent and young faces, the St. Hubert soccer team is finding its identity. With two of its stars leading the way, the Bambies may prove tough to stop.

    Kylie Bowers had just scored the biggest goal of her brief high school soccer career, though the uber-shy freshman’s reaction never showed it.

    Judge soccer gets payback in win over La Salle

    Aaron Povlow and the Father Judge soccer team had been waiting 10 long, brutal months for this game, so the goal going in was pretty cut and dry.


    High School Football Round-Up: Week 3

    Outlook: The Railsplitters have sandwiched the season’s only win (a 6-2 victory in Week 2 over Overbrook) around two ugly losses, first a 47-21 defeat at Truman to open the year followed by last week’s 31-0 shutout at the hands of Upper Dublin. Lincoln hasn’t seen much develop in its rushing attack (LeRon Strothers leads the way with 56 yards on 20 carries), but QB Devon Thompkins has shown signs of improvement in taking over for the graduated Miguel Sanchez. Though he’s thrown only one TD pass so far, Thompkins has completed 28 of 60 passes for 306 yards, and is developing a nice chemistry with Ryan transfer Travon Williams, who has caught half of Thompkins’ passes for 164 yards. Head coach Ed McGettigan’s team will continue trying to get better when it opens up Class AAAA Silver Division play at South Philadelphia; after two defeats to open their season, the Rams responded last week with a 33-14 win over Valley Forge Military Academy.


    A family affair

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Mark Ostaszewski Jr. is a two-way senior standout at Archbishop Ryan; in 1990, his father also competed for the Raiders.   


    Twice as nice

    Having been best friends since the second grade, Ryan Nork and Joey Hansen have spent ample time talking about attaining future goals together.


    Bambies run out of magic in title game bout

    It was just one of those days when very little went St. Hubert’s way.


    Back on track
