Before Monsignor Bonner and Cardinal O'Hara took the floor for their final league game Sunday, both teams knew that winning was a must for playoff position and survival. When it was over, Bonner had clinched first place in the Catholic League Southern Division and knocked O'Hara out of playoff contention with a 67-47 victory. Bonner got some help in the standings from Roman Catholic, which defeated West Catholic, 73-69, Sunday. West had been tied for first place with Bonner going into Sunday's action.

It was a funny scene. Although Monsignor Bonner had decided on a new basketball coach Tuesday, athletic director Dick Bernhart refused to tell the school's basketball players. "We knew but we didn't know," said Mike Ferry, an incoming Bonner senior. Bernhart did not want to say because the school's new coach, Kevin McCormick, was coaching a Springfield team against a squad of Bonner players that night in a Media Basketball League playoff game. But Ferry works in the school's office and overheard a conversation that concluded with a "so long, Kevin.

For Monsignor Bonner's golf team, March 23 was supposed to be the date of just another match. But this one was different. The Friars were facing St. Hubert - a girls' school - for the first time.

" Bonner, which has a new coach, Ed Moody, soundly defeated St. Hubert, 195-284, playing seven holes instead of the usual nine because of darkness.

Some runners might be offended. Others might be downright mad. But Kevin Hager is actually happy that he's not in the limelight every day. The Monsignor Bonner junior is a quiet, almost shy athlete. He has been one of the strongest runners for an outstanding Friars team, but he doesn't get as much attention as his teammate, Kevin McGinnis. Hager is used to that. He was on a St. James team in his freshman and sophomore years that was one of the best in the area. With teammates such as Jermaine Battle, LaMar Campbell, Dave Thomas, Harvey Johnson, Mel Raymond and McGinnis at St. James, Hager usually took a back seat to his high-profile teammates.

If Monsignor Bonner baseball coach Joe DeBarberie had a sense of déjà vu during Thursday's District 12 Class AAAA championship game against Central, it was understandable. As they did in the Catholic League title game, the Friars (20-4) stumbled out of the gate, falling behind, 3-0, in the first inning. But they rallied behind the steady pitching of Joe Nestor and timely hitting of Alex Liberatore, Matt Ruggieri and Rick Reigner to post an 11-4 victory over the Lancers at La Salle High's Ward Field.

When Monsignor Bonner captured a 4-1 victory over Downingtown Tuesday night at the Skatium to advance to the Flyers Cup finals, there was no jubilation. And there was no swarming of Friars goaltender Jim Bauer, who was superb in stopping 19 shots and breathing life into his team with some high-quality saves early in the game. Instead, with 18 seconds left, Bauer left his crease to partake in a brawl at mid-ice that ensued with Downingtown feeling the weight of its fourth and most heart-wrenching loss of the season to the Friars.

At the season's outset, probably no one would have figured it to be this way. For Monsignor Bonner's ice hockey team, after having lost 17 players because of graduation, a mere .500 record this year would have been deemed respectable and probably would have earned coach Ted Dolan a few pats on the back. Instead, the Friars have turned their 1989-90 campaign into a dream season. Last week, Dolan's squad of too few veterans and too many rookies shocked Malvern Prep, 1-0, Tuesday in the Flyers Cup Championship at the Skatium.

Before Monsignor Bonner met the Haverford School in the second round of the Eastern High School Hockey League playoffs, head coach Ted Dolan said that he felt his team was about to reach its peak. Dolan was not mistaken. The Friars bounced the Fords in two straight games at the Skatium to capture the best-of-three set and advance to the EHSHL finals against Malvern Prep. In the opening game of the best-of-three series against Malvern on Friday night, Bonner lost, 4-0, as the EHSHL's first-place team received a shutout from freshman goalie Jason Myrtetus.
