It was only halftime, but Coatesville football coach John Barr could already sense that his players were in payback mode. Exactly one year and three days after Central Dauphin had humbled and embarrassed the Red Raiders, his team had a 28-zip lead at intermission Friday night. They won by a 42-0 count, with the 35-point mercy-rule kicking in with more than six minutes to play in the third quarter. Payback indeed. "Momentum was ours, the kids got a sense of themselves, and we just played a great football game," Barr said.

Dan D'Amato, the Coatesville rubber-armed southpaw who picked up all four wins in the Raiders' drive to the District 1 Class AAA championship, said his team was ready to "move up to the next level. " "Anybody we play, we're going to play them hard," D'Amato said Thursday after he pitched the Raiders past Pennridge, 8-1, in the district championship game. Well, it looks as if the Raiders had better bring a hard-playing attitude to today's first round of the PIAA Class AAA state playoff at 4:30 p.m. at Quakertown.

Kareem Shelton did so many things right Friday night in Coatesville's emotional 42-0 win over Central Dauphin that somebody was searching for a negative. "Oh yeah, the punt," Shelton said, referring to a punt he fumbled late in the first half. Central Dauphin recovered on the Red Raiders' 10-yard line but, obviously, did not score. "I saw daylight, and I knew I was going to be able to return it," said the senior. "The blocking and everything was right there. I guess I started running before I caught it. " That's the truly scary thing about Coatesville's victory over the perennial Mid-Penn League power.
