The only thing Juan Jones cares about is winning. That's why the sophomore running back spent most of the second half on the sidelines during Morrisville's 35-8 rout of Chestnut Hill Academy in an Independence League game Friday. "I had a chance to get a 200-yard game, but I chose not to," Jones said after a 21-carry, 154-yard performance that included two rushing touchdowns and a defensive score. "Yards don't mean anything. As long as we win, that's all that matters. It's not about [statistics]

Chestnut Hill Academy had barely answered the bell when the Academy of the New Church sent it sprawling to the canvas in a 49-14 Independence League laugher Friday afternoon. "It was almost like a first-round knockout," ANC coach Andy Davis said. The Lions (5-1 overall, 4-0 league) led by 28 points in the first half and took a 49-7 lead midway through the fourth quarter. They capitalized on three consecutive turnovers by visiting Chestnut Hill (2-4, 1-3) to score three touchdowns and go up by 21-0 with 3 minutes, 29 seconds left in the first period.

The soccer tradition that has brought Chestnut Hill Academy statewide prominence can be traced back almost a half-century to another school. Jack Talbot began coaching soccer at George School in Bucks County shortly after World War II and, despite being a tennis pro to boot, instilled a love for unappreciated foreign "football" in his son Jim, who went on to star at North Carolina in the early 1960s. Jim Talbot took over as Chestnut Hill's coach in 1967 and enjoyed mild success in the form of two Inter-Ac League titles through the mid-1980s, when his own son John played at the school.

Cyrus H. Nathan spent only two years at Chestnut Hill Academy, but he left it $2.2 million that will be used to endow six chairs at the private boys' school. Nathan, a 1930 alumnus, died in Litchfield, Conn., in April at 97. His bequest will establish endowed chairs in English, history, language, mathematics, science, and music and art. The chairs will honor and celebrate great, inspiring teachers, school officials said. Chestnut Hill Academy said all teachers at Chestnut Hill would be eligible for the awards, as would instructors who taught coed classes at its partner institution, the all-girls Springside School.

João M. Cardoso, 76, of Glenside, a Chestnut Hill Academy foreign-language teacher for 29 years, died Monday, Aug. 5, at home of pancreatic cancer. Born on the tiny island of Faial, in Portugal's Azores, he was a mediocre student who struggled with stuttering. At age 14, his mother sent him to a Seventh-day Adventist boarding school on the Portuguese mainland. The experience gave him an insatiable wanderlust, his family said. In the mid-1950s, Mr. Cardoso served in the Portuguese army artillery, where he attained the rank of corporal.

Chestnut Hill Academy has one of the top scholastic boys' soccer programs in southeastern Pennsylvania. Yesterday, coach Jim Talbot's team got a look at one of the top programs in New Jersey, and it was an eye-opener. Unbeaten St. Benedict's of Newark scored three times in the first half en route to a 3-0 win over the Blue Devils on the Chestnut Hill campus. St. Benedict's, 17-0, has not lost to a U.S. team in two years, going 40-1-2 over that span. Its lone loss last year was to Tahuichi of Bolivia in an international tournament held in Newark.

The Bristol coaching staff last week repeatedly warned its special-teams unit to be prepared for the blocking wall that Chestnut Hill Academy set up on its kickoff and punt returns. That wall was equally effective on defense, and Bristol quarterback Steve Reeves and tailback Dan Smyth found that it impeded their every rushing attempt. That wall, which was disguised as Chestnut Hill Academy defensive tackles Steve Lamberton and Steve Swartley, yielded the visiting Warriors only 84 yards rushing and sparked the still-unbeaten Blue Devils to a 21-0 victory in Saturday's Independence League matchup.

On a hot, dusty day, the game between Haverford School and Chestnut Hill Academy kicked off at noon. High noon.

We were a little surprised by their effort. " The Fords (2-1) came out firing and smoked the Blue Devils in a 31-7 rout. Haverford School jumped all over Chestnut Hill (1-2)

Finally, the football players at Chestnut Hill Academy feel like part of the family again. For 33 years, the Blue Devils football players felt like outsiders at their own school. While the school's other teams competed in the Inter-Ac League, the football team played in the Independence League. "We are really excited" about rejoining the Inter-Ac, said second-year coach Richard Knox, a 1992 graduate and former player at Chestnut Hill. "It's a great place for our team. All of the other teams are there.
