Tyrik Glenn and Joe Early were in uniform as freshmen in December 2012, when Williamstown completed the best season in the history of the football program with a victory over Southern in the South Jersey Group 5 title game at Rowan University. They planned on book-ending their careers with another 12-0 season as seniors. "That's what everybody wants, to finish that way," Glenn said. The perfect season is beyond Williamstown's reach in 2015. But the Braves' veteran leaders think the team might be stronger because of its recent misstep.

Midway through the Coaches Tournament semifinals on Sunday against Cherokee, Amirah Ali went hard for a 50-50 ball inside the 18-yard box. When she jumped, leaning slightly toward the net, there was a defender with a full head of steam waiting to jar the ball loose. The two collided so hard that Ali spun in midair. It was like a kung fu movie, a scene out of Kill Bill . The referees called a penalty, and Ali converted. For Ali - the superstar forward for the Eastern girls' soccer team - it was just another day at the office.

The Eastern field hockey players slapped their hands in unison against their thighs, clapped twice, and chanted "Eastern!" after Nikki Santore scored another goal against Cherokee last Wednesday. The celebration was ordinary, but for Santore, the goal was not. The tally was the 100th of the senior's career. Yet the forward is determined to keep her focus on the season ahead rather than on individual accomplishments. "I was excited, but we've been going into playoffs just focusing on the team and the program," Santore said.

"I didn't even know what was happening at first. "I thought about trying to run out of bounds, then I turned the corner and saw the pylon, and I thought: 'I might be able to do this.' " Welsh threw four other touchdown passes as Shawnee shocked a Cherokee team that was No. 4 in The Inquirer Top 25 and coming off consecutive victories over previously undefeated Williamstown and Lenape.
