Archbishop Wood captured its seventh consecutive PIAA District 12 Class AAA championship Saturday by holding off never-say-die Imhotep Charter. Speedy tailback Jarrett McClenton and bruising fullback Alex Arcangeli served as a solid one-two punch, combining for 261 rushing yards and five touchdowns in a 42-34 victory at Northeast's Charles Martin Memorial Stadium. Vikings tight end Christian Lohin helped soften Imhotep's run defense by notching a season-high three catches for 95 yards.

WHEN JARRETT McClenton was around 7 or 8 years old he was no stranger to great running-back play. Long before he shared Daily News Player of the Year last season, McClenton, now a senior at Archbishop Wood, watched his older brother, Jeff, play football at Conwell-Egan. Jeff was a speedy wideout and safety in his own right, but Steve Slaton was the burner in the backfield. "He could always make the big run because he had breakaway speed," said Jarrett, who is 5-8 and weighs 165 pounds, "but he was also very physical when he ran the ball.

EXETER TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Ryan Haney liked the way his team looked before its PIAA Class AAA quarterfinal at Exeter Township High. The Archbishop Ryan girls' soccer team was focused, the coach said, and the players' eyes just looked "right. " It was a far cry from the way the Ragdolls had appeared Tuesday in a first-round game, in which they seemed nervous and a little bit off, Haney said. "The right songs were on the radio. Everything looked like it fell into place," Haney said.

The game hadn't even started yet, and Devon Haviland needed to change her jersey. Usually wearing No. 0 in net, the Archbishop Wood goalkeeper was asked to replace her dark gray shirt with a color less like the black jerseys of Tuesday's opponent, the Northwestern Lehigh girls' soccer team. The senior obliged and put on a No. 1 in a bright red that was much different from what the Vikings were used to seeing inside their own 18-yard line. The change didn't impact her play.

A smile lit up Ryan Hemsley's face. But his right knee was bleeding. "A souvenir," the senior goalkeeper for Archbishop Wood remarked as he tried to wash it off by splashing water on it. "A souvenir. " Hemsley wasn't exactly sure when his knee started bleeding from hitting the turf at Northeast High School on Tuesday night. Neither did he care. No matter what time appeared on the scoreboard when he suffered the cut, the result of the game was still the same. Hemsley and the Vikings moved on in the PIAA Class AAA tournament by defeating Wissahickon, 3-3 (3-2 in penalty kicks)

You could feel the ground move. The large and rowdy student sections for the Archbishop Wood and Roman Catholic boys' soccer teams were on the move, changing positions to be behind the goal of the opposition. Vikings supporters ran one way, and Cahillites fans went the opposite way. It was the start of overtime in the Catholic League final, and both sides wanted a front-row seat for the game-winner. After 15 minutes and no score, the spectators changed again. Good thing they did, or else the Wood fans would have missed Matt McWilliams' golden goal that gave the Vikings a 1-0 victory and the championship.
