VIDEO: Highlights and reaction to St. Elizabeth's win
St. Elizabeth stormed back from a big 1st half deficit to defeat Sussex Central 64-54 Thursday night in Wilmington.

Sussex Central's dynamic duo of Taylor Pritchett and Jasmine Hudson went right to work off the opening tap, with the Golden Knights scoring a layup just 3 seconds into the contest.

The Golden Knights would claim leads of 9 in both opening quarters, 19-10 in the 1st, and 30-21 in the 2nd before the Vikings scored the final six points of the half to cut the margin to 30-27. Hudson and Pritchett each had 12 points in the opening 16 minutes.

Saint Elizabeth got as close as one in the 3rd quarter, but could not find the tying equation, although Alex Thomas made a basket just before the buzzer to make it a 48-43 game going into the 4th.

90 seconds into the final frame, the game changed when Jordyn Humes hit a three-pointer for St. Elizabeth while a foul was committed underneath the basket. Alex Thomas hit two free-throws for what amounted to a 5-point play tying the game at 48.

The teams traded the lead until Sussex Central had a 54-53 advantage with 2:45 left to play.

Sophomore Sarah Metz buried a three-pointer for the Vikings, sparking the 11-0 run which ended the game.

Thomas led St. Elizabeth (10-5) with 24 points, with Alanna Speaks adding 20.

Pritchett's 21 points and Hudson's 20 paced Sussex Central (10-3).

VIDEO: A.I. watches as Sean Brady drops 3 of his 16 points.
Concord pushed their road record to 5-1 on the season with their 53-42 win at A.I. duPont Thursday night.

A.I. held a 10-7 lead early in the second quarter, that was when Concord took over. Rick Malloy knocked down two straight three's for Concord that gave them a lead they would never relinquish.

Malloy finished with 17 points to lead the Raiders. Sean Brady with 16 points was Concord's other scorer in double-digits.

The Raiders finished the first half on a 17-6 run that turned the game from a 3-point Tiger lead to an 8-point advantage in favor of Concord.

Concord's lead would not shrink beyond a six-point margin, as they controlled the tempo most of the second half.

Jordan Teagle was one point shy of a double-double, with 9 points and 12 rebounds for the Tigers. Chetor Carter was the only Tigers player to reach double-figures with 10 points.

Concord (11-3) will be on the road again Saturday when they face Hodgson at 1:15pm. A.I. duPont (8-5) will travel to Charter Tuesday night at 5:15pm.

After a month long series on the road, Appoquinimink came home to shut down William Penn, 49-46.

The last two minutes of the second quarter William Penn came alive on a 9-0 streak, closing the half at 29-22.

The Colonials could not stop the Jaguars' at the start of the second half. With two baskets from Amir Johnson, and a three pointer from Myles Cale, the game was tied.

William Penn fought back in the fourth quarter to push a 5 point lead with four minutes left. The game changed when Najee Sanders went to the line to shoot the one and one. Following the first made shot, Sanders missed the second but Myles Cale attacked for the rebound and put the ball back for two. The Jaguars capitalized on their opportunities at the line to secure the victory.

Myles Cale led the Jaguars, scoring 18 points. Kristian Alexander followed, scoring 12.

Appoquinimink improves their record to 11-2.

Flyers top Winnipeg 5-2 for 3rd straight victory

By Dan Gelston/AP 11:37pm, January 29, 2015
Wayne Simmonds, Chris VandeVelde, Nick Schultz and Brayden Schenn scored, leading the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

Sean Couturier added an empty-netter as Philadelphia won for the fourth time in five games while trying to make a desperate run at a playoff berth.

Mathieu Perreault scored twice for the Jets.

Schultz snapped a tie game in the second period with his first goal of the season, ending a 125-game drought. Petra Straka got his first NHL point on the assist, and Ryan White also had his first assist of the season on the goal.

Steve Mason was stout in goal and earned his second win in two games, though his first as a starter since Jan. 8.



Eagles name Marynowitz VP of player personnel

By Associated Press 4:04pm, January 29, 2015
The Philadelphia Eagles have named Ed Marynowitz vice president of player personnel.

The 30-year-old Marynowitz joined the Eagles in 2012 as the team's assistant director of pro scouting. He was promoted one year later to assistant director of player personnel.

Philadelphia reshuffled its football operations staff after missing the playoffs following a second straight 10-win season.

Coach Chip Kelly got control of the Eagles' player personnel department after Howie Roseman was promoted from general manager to executive vice president of football operations.

That shake-up came two days after the dismissal of vice president of player personnel Tom Gamble on Dec. 31.



Phillies sign RHP Billingsley to $1.5 million, 1-year deal

By Associated Press 9:47pm, January 29, 2015
The Philadelphia Phillies have signed right-hander Chad Billingsley to a $1.5 million, one-year contract.

Billingsley spent all of last season on the disabled list for the Los Angeles Dodgers while he recovered from both Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. His contract includes performance bonuses.

Billingsley averaged over 12 wins and nearly 180 innings per season from 2007-12. He is 81-61 with a 3.65 ERA in 219 games (190 starts), all for the Dodgers, who selected him in the first round (24th overall) in the 2003 draft.

A 2009 NL All-Star, he has pitched in six postseason games for the Dodgers, three against the Phillies.

To make room for Billingsley on the 40-man roster, the Phillies designated left-hander Cesar Jimenez for assignment.
