The fact that they had started their football season three weeks before Saturday's opponent didn't necessarily mean that Coatesville owned an advantage. Physically, it was a disadvantage. The Red Raiders entered their nonleague game at Willingboro battered and bruised, and they ended up being beaten, 28-14, at Carl Lewis Stadium. Besides having an assortment of injuries - including the concussion that kept quarterback Todd Smith out of the second half - Coatesville (3-2)

No one will ever know what would have happened a year ago, had Central Bucks West played Coatesville, because there weren't any District 1 football playoffs. And so, on the basis of its better record, an 11-0 CB West team advanced to last year's PIAA state tournament and won the Class AAAA championship. All that 10-0-1 Coatesville could do was ponder what might have been. This time, the question has been answered. All season, CB West and Coatesville were again ranked Nos. 1 and 1A in District 1. If last year's system were still in place, an unbeaten CB West would have gone back to the state tourney, since Coatesville lost last month to the state's top-rated team, District 3's Cumberland Valley.

Coatesville's quick-striking, speed-laden offense was way too much for Neshaminy's usually staunch defense. The No. 9-seeded Red Raiders struck for five of their nine touchdowns in the first half, totaled 515 yards of offense, and emphatically ousted the No. 13 Redskins, 63-28, Friday night in a PIAA District 1 Class AAAA semifinal playoff. Quarterback Emmitt Hunt, halfback Daquan Worley, and wideouts Chris Jones and Dre Boggs did the bulk of the damage for the explosive hosts. Hunt completed 12 of 14 passes for 313 yards and four touchdowns; Worley rushed for 179 yards and three scores on 17 attempts; and Jones and Boggs combined for four receiving touchdowns.

If Lower Merion does end up meeting Chester for top honors at Villanova, Friday night's PIAA District 1 Class AAAA quarterfinal against Coatesville served as the perfect tune-up. The Red Raiders, with four impact players from a successful football squad, are quick, physical, and show no fear. "They're a pretty good example of Chester," Aces senior guard Raheem Hall said. In a fast-paced contest before an overflow crowd, No. 2-seeded Lower Merion, with Hall producing 20 points and 10 rebounds, turned back No. 10 Coatesville, 73-63, at Bryant Gymnasium.

Coatesville's former top administrator is suing the city, claiming it gave his predecessor, a white man, termination pay but refused to give him the same benefit because he is black. In a discrimination lawsuit filed Monday in federal court in Philadelphia, Harry G. Walker III, who became city manager in 2006, said his contract stated he would receive six months of termination pay if he was fired without cause. Walker said he was. The city has said Walker was fired in 2010 for mismanagement and breach of duties.

Once Kate Poppe's cleats find their place on the pitching rubber, there's not much that bothers her. Not the unusually cold spring weather that had many spectators wrapped in blankets Wednesday. Not the slight drizzle that sporadically came and went. And not the bases-loaded, one-out jam she smoothly worked out of in the first inning of her two-hitter against visiting Coatesville, as Bishop Shanahan earned a 4-1 win in a Ches-Mont League game. With a mixture of pitches, Poppe kept the Red Raiders off balance, striking out 12, including four that were caught looking.

The treasurer of a Chester County fire company was charged Wednesday with stealing $300,000 from the station by forging checks, stealing from the firehouse safe, and manipulating bingo records. Hower Smith III, 57, allegedly stole the money from Coatesville's Westwood Fire Company between 2006 and 2012. Smith, who lives in Coatesville and was a member of the company for about 40 years, was removed from his post and came under investigation in 2012 after he charged $2,000 to a fire company credit card while on vacation in Hawaii, officials said.
