The situations are the same, yet different for Seneca's football team. For the second year in a row, the Golden Eagles have a chance to play giant-slayer, with an opportunity to knock off The Inquirer's No. 1-ranked South Jersey team, Cherokee. Last year, Seneca played the role perfectly, beating an undefeated Cherokee team, 14-7, on Thanksgiving to finish with an 8-3 record. Once again, Cherokee is 10-0, ranked No. 1, and headed to the South Jersey Group 4 final, in which the Chiefs will host Oakcrest on Dec. 4. That's where the similarities end. Seneca was a Group 3 playoff qualifier last year, but it enters Thursday's 11 a.m. game at Cherokee with a 4-5 record.

The Kansas City Chiefs tried to bury themselves with mistakes, but the Los Angeles Raiders let them up one too many times. That was enough, and the Chiefs escaped with a 24-21 victory. "Everything that was going wrong for us did go wrong," Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer said. "Just another exciting night at Arrowhead Stadium. " No sooner had an offensive pass-interference penalty appeared to doom Kansas City than quarterback Steve DeBerg hit Tim Barnett with a 6-yard touchdown pass with 47 seconds left for the winning points.

Coming into the weekend, Kansas City found itself all alone atop the AFC West for the first time since Oct. 25, 1981. Sure hope it was nice while it lasted. The Denver Broncos (5-2) saw to that by beating the visiting Chiefs yesterday, 19-16. It was the ninth straight time the Chiefs (5-3), who had won four in a row, have lost at Mile High Stadium. And Kansas City coach Marty Schottenheimer is 1-7 against the Broncos, 0-5 at Denver. Before yesterday, Denver quarterback John Elway had thrown more interceptions against the Chiefs (24)

The Kansas City Chiefs said yesterday they will install a grass field at Arrowhead Stadium - perhaps in time for the 1994 season. The Chiefs join the Kansas City Royals in switching to grass on their neighboring fields at the Harry S. Truman Sports Complex. The Royals plan to play on grass at Kauffman Stadium in 1995. The Chiefs said they hope to have grass installed for 1994, but if that is not feasible it will be installed in the spring and summer of 1995. A nine-year study by Dr. John W. Powell, of the University of Iowa, in which he catalogued virtually every NFL injury, concluded there was a "statistically significant difference" between the Astroturf injury rates for knee sprains and knee injuries on grass.

There was a time when the Mount St. Joseph's girls' soccer team was just about left for dead. Not too long ago, actually. The Chiefs had lost in the semifinals of the Catholic Academies League playoffs to upstart Merion Mercy, and an invitation to the PIAA District 1 tournament was not a certainty. But the Chiefs got a bid, and they put on quite a show. They knocked off two of the top seeds in the tournament, Strath Haven and Great Valley. But when it came down to league rival Villa Joseph Marie in the district final, the eighth-seeded Chiefs just ran out of gas. Denise Serafin got the Chiefs on the board first, but Jems senior Erin Schlussel scored twice in the fourth quarter and Villa took a 3-1 decision in front of a spirited crowd at the United German Hungarian Club in Oakford Monday night.

Wes Hopkins, the comebacking former Eagles free safety, flew to Kansas City yesterday and worked out for the Chiefs' coaching staff. Negotiations between Hopkins's agent, Harry Himes, and Kansas City could get under way as early as today. "Wes informed me that the workout went very well," Himes said. "He is looking forward to exploring the opportunity of playing for this championship- caliber team. " Hopkins, 31, feels he has fully recovered from offseason microfracture surgery on his left knee, and has been exploring job possibilities with NFL teams other than the Eagles.

THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS hired former Vikings coach Brad Childress, reuniting him with his former Eagles boss, Andy Reid. Childress, who spent last season as the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns, will be the Chiefs' spread game analyst and work on special projects. He spent 5 years as the Minnesota head coach (2006-10), a stint that included two division titles (2008-09). The team was 12-4 in 2009. Childress previously spent seven seasons (1999-2005) with the Eagles, where he worked with Reid, the new Chiefs head coach.

Gunther Cunningham, who screams at players one minute and hugs them the next but apparently always commands their respect, is Kansas City's choice to replace Marty Schottenheimer as coach. As the Chiefs' defensive coordinator for four years, the intense, personable Cunningham became popular with everyone in the organization and twice molded a unit that led the NFL in fewest points allowed. "I am euphoric at finally getting this opportunity," said Cunningham, who was born in Germany and moved to the United States at age 12 when his mother married an American serviceman.

After an jolt in the first four minutes of the season opener, the Cherokee girls' basketball team stressed getting off to a good start the next time out. That came yesterday when the Chiefs started well and finished even better for a 52-39 win over Eastern in an Olympic Conference American Division game. Defending American Division champion Cherokee is 1-1 overall and 1-0 in the American Division. This game contrasted greatly from the Chiefs' opener, a 68-49 loss to talented Timber Creek on Friday.

The Joe Valerio watch officially has begun. He needs just 125 more touchdowns to tie the NFL record. That is assuming Jerry Rice retires this week. OK, Valerio admits, it is a reach. But then, so was the very idea he would score the first touchdown in yesterday's Kansas City-San Francisco, Joe Montana-Steve Young epic at Arrowhead Stadium. "We figured Joe was the last guy they'd look for in that situation," said Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer, explaining why they threw the ball to Valerio, a 6-5, 295-pound offensive lineman from Penn, on fourth-and-goal.

Joseph Boardman, chief executive of Amtrak, defended Amtrak's safety record Thursday, even as he lamented that Tuesday's deadly derailment may "have destroyed the confidence of people" who ride the railroad. He also said Amtrak has been underfunded for decades and must have more money to rebuild the century-old underpinnings of the Northeast Corridor, the nation's busiest rail route. He said Amtrak officials have not interviewed the engineer of Train 188, who apparently was operating the train at twice the 50-mile-per-hour speed limit entering a sharp curve in Port Richmond.

West Chester University's former chief budgeting officer contends that the school falsely reported deficits or near break-even budgets for three years to get more state funding, then "squirreled away" millions of dollars in unreported funds to use if it succeeded in withdrawing from the State System of Higher Education. In a federal lawsuit filed Thursday, Colleen Bradley said she was fired for speaking out about the university's "misuse and waste of public funds by high-level state government officers.

SANDRA L. STIBBINS would have been out there yesterday, marching with the other cancer patients and survivors in the annual Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure. She made every march in recent years, dressed in the pink costume that every marcher wears, symbolic of this Mother's Day event in the ceaseless battle against cancer. But this year Sandra couldn't make it. She died of cancer May 2 at age 57. An ebullient, high-spirited woman, she would have been laughing and waving at the crowds along the line of march, as she did every year.

In addition, a second woman who works in the office has told supervisors that Duecker had sexually harassed her, according to people familiar with the woman's account.

He has been crew chief for Danica Patrick, Ryan Newman, Mark Martin, Michael Waltrip and Bill Elliott. Gibson's NASCAR career goes all the way back to 1992 when he was car chief and mechanic for the late Alan Kulwicki, the '92 Cup series champion. With three races remaining last season, Gibson moved from Patrick's team to Busch's.
