    N.E. well-repped for ‘blue-collar’ Roman Catholic soccer

    Northeast Philadelphia always has had a reputation of being a blue-collar part of town, and its citizens know they must work painstakingly hard for everything that comes their way.


    The comeback kid

    After a broken wrist derailed his 2012 season, Marquis Seamon is healthy again for white-hot Father Judge — and he’s got plenty of help.

    Last year, Marquis Seamon flew to Ireland for a football game and returned home with a season-ending fractured wrist as his souvenir. 


    Ragdolls’ reign atop the Catholic League continuing

    In 2012, the Archbishop Ryan girls soccer team didn’t lose its first game of the season until Nov. 6. It was the Ragdolls’ only blemish of the season, a 1-0 first round state tournament defeat at the hands of Central Bucks West.


    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.

    Laws on mental illness are insane


    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.


    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.   


    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.
