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.

Not too long ago, the Upper Darby school board couldn't say enough nice things about its superintendent, Richard F. Dunlap Jr. It wrote in his 2014-15 school year evaluation: "Performance is superior, far exceeding expectations. " A year ago, he got an 8 percent pay raise, bringing his salary to $194,866, and a fresh five-year contract. Now Dunlap is out, having spent the last six weeks on paid leave before officially retiring on Wednesday. Since July 12, he's apparently been the subject of six executive sessions of the board, including one meeting in which 24 staffers were brought in to testify.

The greatest danger to Pennsylvanians is less likely to come from terrorists plotting attacks halfway around the world than from a homegrown extremist in their own backyard, the state's homeland security chief said Monday. "The 'lone wolf' doesn't need ISIS," Homeland Security Director Marcus Brown said at a terrorism awareness and response symposium in King of Prussia. "They're much less pushing the organized attack from ISIS to the United States, they're saying, 'Go do something, don't wait for us to tell you.' " Brown was among more than 600 law enforcement personnel gathered at the Valley Forge Sheraton for the daylong conference put on by the state.

What else was he going to do? It was late May, during the Eagles' organized team activities, and Doug Pederson had never been an NFL head coach before, which meant he had no game film of his own offense, which meant that he had to use the next best thing. So to introduce his players to the system's formations and concepts, he showed them film of the 2015 Kansas City Chiefs. Pederson had been the Chiefs' offensive coordinator under Andy Reid. It was close enough to what Pederson wanted to do with the Eagles.

One of the potential annoyances of being a first-time head coach - especially one who has as little NFL coaching and play-calling experience as Doug Pederson - is that each of your limited on-record decisions will be scrutinized with Zapruder-like precision. When Pederson took ownership of the play-calling on the Chiefs' final possession in their playoff loss to the Patriots, the time-consuming drive had already been dissected. But it was assumed at the time that Andy Reid, who had authored his share of snail-like marches, was the source of Kansas City's lack of urgency.

When he was in his 20s and teaching high school history at Bishop Kenrick in Norristown, Joseph Clancy decided to put on a suit, make his way into the city, and head to the Secret Service field office at Sixth and Arch Streets. Clancy, a Havertown kid, had wanted to be in the Secret Service since John F. Kennedy was killed, which he figured he could tell someone at the office. Even if there wasn't a job opening, Clancy - an Archbishop Carroll and Villanova graduate - thought maybe he could persuade someone to let him join.

He backed off a previous assertion that he had never been drunk in his life, but Devon Horse Show chairman Wayne Grafton insisted he was not intoxicated on the May night that he was cited for public drunkenness at the show grounds. Under a plea agreement, Grafton, 67, of Unionville, pleaded guilty Thursday morning to a charge of disorderly conduct and acknowledged acting in a "noisy, loud, boisterous, and unseemly manner" after a Horse Show event. After the proceeding before District Judge Thomas Tartaglio in Tredyffrin Township, Grafton tempered an earlier comment that he had never been drunk in his life, clarifying that he was not inebriated "that evening.

The call came in to the Cheltenham police station on a rainy night in 2009. A driver had struck an elderly woman along Church Road and then drove off. Frances Gordon died on her 85th birthday. No good tips ever came in. Seven years later, the hit-and-run death remains unsolved. For John Norris, it's cases such as Gordon's death that will haunt him the most. Norris retired at the end of June after a dozen years as Cheltenham's police chief. He cleaned out his office; the walls were stripped bare.
