Bloomsburg's 12-game winning streak ended and so did the Huskies' season with a 33-3 loss to host Northwest Misssouri State in the NCAA Division II national semifinals last night. Xavier Omon rushed for 149 yards and two touchdowns as Northwest (14-0) earned a return trip to the national title game. Northwest posted 179 yards rushing to 23 for Bloomsburg (12-2) and finished with a 431 to 191 edge in total offense. "We knew if we didn't run the ball, it was going to be a long evening and it was," said coach Danny Hale, a former West Chester coach and player.

Don't expect the Bloomsburg women's lacrosse team to roll over and play dead when it visits West Chester, the seven-time defending Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference champion, in a game for the league title tomorrow at 1 p.m. The Huskies barely lost to West Chester, 14-13, in last year's league final. "They believe they can do it," Bloomsburg coach Kathy Frick said of her players. "They're not going in thinking that because West Chester's won so many in a row, they're going to do it again.

One of the good guys is back in college coaching. Danny Hale, who compiled an outstanding 40-13 football record at West Chester (1984 to '88), will slip on a headset for Bloomsburg next season. Since resigning at West Chester five years ago, Hale and his wife, Diane, have operated the Cocoa Motel in Hershey. Hale, a key player on West Chester's 1967 Tangerine Bowl team, stayed close to football as an assistant coach at Hershey High, where Gump May, a teammate of Hale's at West Chester, is the head coach.

As far as any member of the West Chester University football program is concerned, Bloomsburg has fast become one of the foulest 10-letter words on campus. Consider: In 1983, Bloomsburg defeated the Rams, 25-24. Two years ago in the league finale, Bloomsburg pulled out a 34-31 victory by scoring on a desperation 50-yard touchdown pass on the last play. That left the teams tied for the Pennsylvania Conference East title, but Bloomsburg advanced into the championship contest against the West winner on the strength of that head-to-head win. And last November, with the division crown again on the line, the Huskies prevailed one more time, 8-6. Like most of his teammates, West Chester flanker Jim Sheehan remembers the '85 meeting more for what could not happen than what actually did take place.

When a football team begins 0-2, about all it hopes for is a winning season. Playing for a national championship isn't on the agenda. Bloomsburg dropped its first two games this season, but guess where the Huskies will be tomorrow? In Florence, Ala., playing Delta State (Cleveland, Miss.) for the NCAA Division II title (ESPN, 2 p.m.). Bloomsburg (12-2) qualified for its first D-II final by rallying to upset host California-Davis, 58-48, last Saturday. "We showed them what good, old coal-region Pennsylvania football can do," Huskies coach Danny Hale said.

Partners in the mixed-doubles portion of the third annual Atlantic City Collegiate Invitational were picked at random. So Mary Yannock of Temple didn't really know what to expect when she was teamed with Mike Estes of Bloomsburg. What she ended up with, though, was a championship. Yannock and Estes won the Dec. 29 event at the Showboat Lanes by defeating Peg Weik of Bloomsburg and Mike Cole of Delaware State in the final, 370-361. The Temple-Bloomsburg duo led all the way, heading the qualifying with a 1,200 total.

The Bloomsburg football team is 7-1-1 and in the thick of the fight for Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference East Division honors. Two of the major reasons for that are senior placekicker Bill Beall and junior kick returner Sean Smith. Beall, a graduate of Penncrest, has broken four records and tied another this fall. He is the Huskies' leading career scorer with 181 points on 29 field goals and 94 extra points. He broke the old record of 162 points set by Mike Morucci in Bloomsburg's early-season 24-20 victory over California (Pa.)

SOMETIMES, there's that one opponent that seems to keep getting in the way. For West Chester, more often than not, it has been Bloomsburg. Whether it has been in the PSAC East or beyond. In this century, they've played 15 times. Bloomsburg has won 10, including eight of nine at home. Five have been by seven points or fewer. "I think they're a nemesis for a lot of people," West Chester coach Bill Zwaan said. "We've played them in so many big games. We've certainly beaten them down here a bunch.

With both starting quarterbacks throwing passes that looked as though they were heading south for the winter, the Cheyney and Bloomsburg defenders looked more like duck hunters than football players. But Bloomsburg's proved much more adept in that role, intercepting four passes en route to a 39-14 victory in an Eastern Division Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference battle yesterday afternoon at Cheyney Stadium. Despite their ineffectiveness, both starting quarterbacks threw a lot of passes, most of them wobbly and most of them incomplete.

A YEAR AGO West Chester did something it hadn't done since 2006, which was win a playoff game on the road. The Rams (11-1) actually did it twice last season - at Bloomsburg and at Shepherd - before finally losing at Lenoir-Rhyne in the Division II semifinals. Now, they're trying to do it again. Last week they beat Slippery Rock (9-3) at home in the opening round by 26. That earned them a trip to Athens, W.Va., to play unbeaten Concord tomorrow. The Mountain Lions, the top seed in Super Region One, have won 11 games for the first time since 1980 and are hosting a postseason game for the first time ever.

Flyers goalie Steve Mason handed Jackie Lithgow his stick Tuesday. Wayne Simmonds wrapped his arm around the 19-year-old and gave him encouraging words. Several players, including Mark Streit, Brayden Schenn, and Michael Del Zotto, and coach Craig Berube told Lithgow he was welcome to visit the locker room anytime. "Epic," Lithgow said in a low, barely audible tone while sitting in a wheelchair in the middle of the locker room at the team's Voorhees practice facility. Lithgow was attending Bloomsburg University when he was assaulted almost nine months ago. He left the hospital Tuesday for the first time since his grueling rehabilitation began.

CLEARFIELD, Pa. - His audience was 75 people or so, many of them gray-haired men in camouflage caps who braced themselves against the wind in the parking lot of the Grice Classic Car and Trophy Game Museum, where stuffed grizzly bears stand like sentries guarding gleaming Chevys and Oldsmobiles. His job on the line, Gov. Corbett was stumping in the "T," politicos' slang for the center and north of the state that denotes reliably Republican territory, imploring supporters not only to vote but to buckle down and persuade others to do so. "Get them to the polls," he said.

MAYBE NOW Ethan Pritchett should be on Stanford's radar? After outdueling Bloomsburg High's Stanford-bound ace yesterday in the PIAA Class AA quarterfinals, perhaps the righthander for Ss. Neumann-Goretti should be on the Cardinal radar. Not sure college recruiting works that way, but there's no rush. The 6-3, 210-pounder, who already possesses uncommon poise for a sophomore, has plenty of time to impress. And his complete-game, two-hit masterpiece opposite Colton Hock, one of the state's best arms, did just that.

WEST CHESTER made the Division II playoffs every year from 2004-08. The Golden Rams went to the national semifinals the first time and won four postseason games in all. Then they got to experience the flip side. In 2010 they went 4-7. That was followed by a 5-6. And naturally you ask why? "You know you've had success, at two different places [also D-III Widener], so you believe in what you're doing," said coach Bill Zwaan. "But when that happens you do question everything. We thought we had good kids who bought in. So we stuck with it, hung in there with them, really thinking that these were the guys who were going to turn it around.
