A young, underrated Boyertown team almost shocked powerful Brooklawn last night in the second round of the American Legion Mid-Atlantic Regional at Bear Stadium. But the New Jersey state champion, favored to win this event by virtue of its 48-1 record coming in, played like a champion in crunch time, taking advantage of a Boyertown (38-16) mistake to score five unearned runs in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game before winning it, 9-8, on Matt Furman's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th.

Before dominating on the mat as a 220-pound sophomore at Boyertown, Jordan Wood was a young kid stuck in a sport he did not like. "I was always bigger for my age," Wood said. "In second and third grade, I was always wrestling sixth and seventh graders who were a lot stronger, and they beat me up pretty good. I didn't like that too much. "I thought about quitting for the first two or three years, but I stuck with it, and now I love it. " Now beating up on some of District 1's finest at 220 pounds, Wood has found his niche as Boyertown's sophomore captain.

Downingtown came close to being eliminated from contention for the Ches- Mont crown Saturday, but took advantage of Great Valley mistakes to score 4 runs in the bottom of the seventh inning for a 7-6 win. Downingtown is now 8-2 in the league and meets Boyertown, the league leader at 9-1, on Wednesday. The Whippets play at West Chester Henderson this afternoon. "At least our destiny is in our own hands," said Whippets coach Mike Morgan. "We don't have to worry about anybody else winning to help us. " Should Downingtown win both games, and Boyertown beat Owen J. Roberts this afternoon, it would force a playoff for the league title.

The Council Rock South junior was in the midst of a 28-0 sophomore campaign when he missed weight by two pounds, making him ineligible to compete at 106 pounds in the sectional tournament. After placing seventh in the state tournament as a freshman, Palmer was shocked to find out his chance to make it back to Hershey in consecutive years had been taken away from him. "It was kind of devastating for me at first, like I didn't really know how to deal with it," Palmer said.

The basketball is "like a magnet," Perkiomen Valley's K.T. Armstrong said. "It's attracted to her hands. " It does not matter if it is during practice or a game for the Vikings. If a shot goes up, sophomore Megan Jonassen is bound to find the ball, grab it, and reel it in. "I just go up and get it," the forward said. "I want to be the one that wants it more. " That sentiment was apparent Wednesday night as Jonassen's double-double helped power Perk Valley to the program's first- ever Pioneer Athletic Conference title by beating Boyertown, 45-25.

One second Abby Kapp was underneath the basket for the Boyertown girls' basketball team, finishing a layup. The next, No. 23 drove the lane to get to the basket or made a backdoor cut. Then there Kapp was again, this time knocking down three-point shots from beyond the arc. The start of the contest between the Bears and Perkiomen Valley had a frenetic pace, thanks in large part to Kapp, who was everywhere on the floor for Boyertown. Rebounds? She did that. Steals?
