Coatesville's getting older. And it has city officials concerned. In 20 years, the average age of Coatesville's population has jumped from 34 to 36.5, not a tremendous increase, but "a clear indication that the young people aren't staying here," said City Manager Wayne "Ted" Reed. "They're leaving after they finish school. " Reed recently raised the matter before the city Planning Commission, saying Coatesville must attract industry and jobs to stop the emigration of its young.

Emmitt Hunt threw for three touchdowns Friday night as ninth-seeded Coatesville eased past visiting No. 16 Wissahickon, 42-21, in the District 1 Class AAAA football quarterfinals.

Dan Murphy's 1-yard rumble in the third put Wissahickon on the board, but Coatesville stormed back with a pair of touchdowns to secure the win. Daquan Worley also added a pair of touchdowns as he scored in the first and third quarters to boost the Red Raiders.

A 21-year-old Downingtown man admitted his role today in the arson spree that terrorized the city of Coatesville for more than a year. Roger L. Barlow pleaded guilty to setting nine blazes during January 2009, including the one that destroyed most of the 300 block of Fleetwood Street, leaving about 50 people homeless and generating national headlines. Chester County Court Judge Thomas G. Gavin approved the terms of a plea bargain that will put Barlow in prison for 12 1/2 to 25 years, followed by 10 years' probation.

Ahkema Evans and Amir Ealey became quick friends after Evans moved from Charlotte to Coatesville before last school year. "Yeah, it's been good," Evans said. "We just get each other. He's somebody I'm happy to have in my life. " With Evans and Ealey playing leading roles, Coatesville repeatedly stymied West Chester Henderson's midline-veer offense and triumphed, 21-3, in a pivotal Ches-Mont League National Conference matchup Friday night. "Our defense is the most physical in the Ches-Mont, maybe the entire state," said Ealey, a 6-foot-4, 235-pound senior tight end and defensive end. "We have multiple players coming downhill to make tackles.

Playing a lineup of three guards and two small forwards may not win a lot of games for a lot of teams, but that kind of lineup gave Chester the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA title last night at Villanova's duPont Pavilion. Led by forward Keith Wood's 20 points, the Clippers defeated Coatesville, 77-62, before about 5,000 fans. All season, Chester (25-2) has played without the benefit of a big man. (Wood, a 6-foot-4 junior, comes closest to that description.) But against Coatesville, the Clippers didn't need a big man. Guards Larry Yarbray (16 points)

The play is aptly named "sneak attack. " In short down-and-distance situations, North Penn lines up as if it's going for a quarterback sneak, but the ball is directly snapped to a tailback. It then turns into a passing play, in which a Knights wideout usually catches the opposing defense off guard and ends up wide open on a play that North Penn coach Dick Beck said "works nine times out of 10. " For North Penn, in its first-round matchup of the District 1 Class AAAA playoffs at Coatesville on Friday night, "sneak attack" proved to be a game-changer.

The Red Raiders trailed by two points and had thrown three straight incomplete passes. "Punt team," Red Raiders coach Matt Ortega hollered. Quarterback Jordan Young remained on the field.

Mike Milano's voice punctured through the pandemonium at Downingtown West's Kottmeyer Stadium. And even though the home crowd had just watched its Whippets win the league title, the fans, parents, and alumni who had stormed the field fell silent as the coach spoke to his team and the crowd in a postgame huddle. "I am so proud of you," Milano said in a voice that seemed both hoarse and emotional. Downingtown West, ranked No. 19 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, upset No. 3 Coatesville, 24-7, to win the Ches-Mont League National Conference title Friday night.

The ninth inning ended with Coatesville first baseman Dom Ricevuto collecting a ground ball and running to the bag for the out. The Raiders dispersed and their opponent - Avon Grove - emerged from the dugout. That's when the umpire yelled, "International tiebreaker. " Right, the international tiebreaker rule. They hadn't gone over "ITB" yet, Avon Grove ace Maggie Balint thought to herself. In all of the practices before and during the season and the extra time spent after practice with her mother, Jennifer, ITB never came up. That wouldn't be a problem for Avon Grove.

A Change.org petition with 468 signatures is calling for the resignations of Coatesville Area School District Superintendent Cathy Taschner and assistant superintendent Kim Donahue. The petition was started three weeks ago by Fonz Newsuan, a Coatesville education activist, who has accused Taschner of mismanagement and failure to deal with discipline problems in the schools. Citing "a big groundswell against Dr. Taschner," Newsuan said he had gathered about 400 more signatures in door-to-door canvassing and was planning a meeting of supporters at New Life in Christ Church in Coatesville on Monday evening.
