The playoff picture is now perfectly clear in the Suburban Hockey League as Council Rock captured the SHL regular-season title with a 6-4 victory over Central Bucks on Thursday in a game played at the Face-Off Circle in Warminster. The champion Indians (11-1) will face fourth-place Cheltenham (4-7-1) in a semifinal series to begin at 6:45 p.m. Thursday, at Face-Off. Second-place Central Bucks (10-2) will face third-place Germantown Academy (8-3-1) in the second game on Thursday, scheduled to begin around 8 p.m. The SHL playoff winner, not the regular-season champion, is guaranteed a slot in the Flyers Cup playoffs to begin in mid-March.

After a 6-1 victory over previously unbeaten North Penn on Wednesday, it was party time for the Central Bucks West girls tennis team. Or was it? The undefeated Bucks had been looking forward to the North Penn match since the Knights closed the 1988 campaign by snapping the Bucks' 35-match unbeaten streak and capturing the Suburban One National Colonial Division championship. After gaining a measure of revenge on North Penn, all that stood between West and perfection was Friday's season finale against Council Rock.

At the start of this season, it didn't appear likely that the most exciting football player in Bucks County would come from Council Rock. But with his four-touchdown performance in last week's 27-25 win over North Penn, Tommy Coleman clearly established himself as gamebreaker of the year. And he has one final chance to perform, as Council Rock (5-5, 4-4 Suburban One National Conference) is scheduled to host William Tennent (4-6, 2-6) at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. His four TDs last week came on a 96-yard return of the game's opening kickoff, a 3-yard run, and 12- and 46-yard pass plays, the last with 2 minutes, 15 seconds to play in the game, on a fourth-down play.

The 1990-91 school year in Bucks County was clearly the second consecutive year of the Rock. Council Rock, which won 14 of 23 Suburban One division sports titles in 1989-90, duplicated the feat this year, although some of the sports changed. On the state level, however, the Indians have gone winless. For the first time in four years, Council Rock will not enter the fall season as the defending state champion in boys cross-country. The PIAA holds interscholastic competition in 20 sports.

Council Rock will play William Tennent tonight in the second meeting in the Suburban High School Hockey League semifinal series, a two-game, total-goals- scored affair. The Indians outscored the Tennent Panthers 6-3 in the first meeting last Thursday. If Tennent hopes to retain both its SHSHL and Flyers Cup championships, it must not only beat Indians tonight but outscore them by 4 or more goals. The winner of the semifinal series will meet Germantown Academy in the best-of-three SHSHL championship series played at the Face-Off Circle in Warminster.

Put a group of high school baseball players on a practice field, and chances are the majority will toss their gloves aside and head directly for the batting cage. But if they wanted to play for Council Rock coach Pete Lucente, they would have to learn to switch their priorities. The Indians, it seems, stress leather first, aluminum second. "I feel (fielding) is too often overlooked," Lucente said yesterday, following defending district champion Council Rock's 3-2 victory over Phoenixville in a PIAA District 1 Class AAA playoff semifinal at West Chester University.

Council Rock school board members have been baffled trying to understand why the district's busing costs are higher this year than last. Now they have one man's analysis. Board member Warren Hymson, who was bestowed the task of analyzing the expense, said four factors may share most of the blame: a difference in contract pricing, minimum time and mileage requirements, different route structures, and increases in enrollment and inflation. "It was an exercise in comparing contract terms and contract costs" from one year to the next, said Hymson, a financial analyst.

Widener assistant baseball coach Matt O'Neill got another look at Ricky Collings on Thursday afternoon in a PIAA Class 4A quarterfinal at Immaculata University. Suffice it to say that O'Neill's already-positive vibes about the Marple Newtown two-way standout and Pride recruit continued. Collings, displaying his usual poise and command, twirled a complete-game four-hitter with three strikeouts as the streaking Tigers advanced with a 3-1 victory over Council Rock North. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior righthander, who doubles as a shortstop, mostly mixed a fastball clocked in the mid-80-mph range and a slider.

Matt Hand pounded the strike zone, Jackson Parker flashed his speed in the outfield and on the base paths, and Council Rock North made Father Judge pay dearly for its sloppy fielding. The result Monday afternoon in a PIAA Class 4A first-round baseball playoff was a 2-1 victory for the Indians at sun-baked Neumann University. Matt Schram's squad advanced to the state quarterfinals for the second straight year even though it posted only two hits. Both of the runs against Judge's Dan Hammer, a hard-throwing righthander and Pittsburgh recruit, were unearned.

Upper Dublin hit only four balls to the outfield Friday afternoon and none went in the direction of Seth Leuz. "I was just chillin' out there," the C.R. North rightfielder said. "I should have gotten a lawn chair or something. " Offensively, Leuz was very much part of a 14-hit attack that propelled the visiting Indians to a 10-0, six-inning rout of the Cardinals in a PIAA District 1 Class 4A quarterfinal in Fort Washington. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound senior went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and two runs from the No. 5 hole as C.R. North moved closer to its second straight district title and third in the last seven seasons.

Kalli Segel knew she was swinging at the first pitch. She watched as her Council Rock North softball teammates did the same thing. It was the game plan coming in, as the scouting report said Methacton's Megan Stauffer threw a lot of first-pitch strikes. So, the senior first baseman had her mind made up when she walked to the plate: She was swinging at the first pitch unless it was unhittable. Luckily for Segel and the Indians, the pitch was just where she likes them, outside and up in the strike zone.

By the time Sophie Beretski's game-winning home run cleared the fence in right field she was already on second base. It's not that the two-run shot was a towering fly ball or got caught up in the wind. No, the Neshaminy second baseman was just too excited to trot around the bases - she wasn't going to slow down just because of her heroics. Instead she did the opposite. "I was sprinting so fast," she said. "I couldn't control my excitement. " Who can blame her? Beretski was responsible for three of her team's four runs as Neshaminy won in dramatic fashion, 4-2, against visiting Council Rock North on Thursday.

Matt Hand's two-way talents have played a huge role in Council Rock North's continued success on the diamond. A righthanded hurler with terrific command, he is 7-0 with a 0.78 ERA and 62 strikeouts in 36 innings. He has yielded only five walks and four earned runs. Doubling as a shortstop for the 14-1 Indians, Hand is batting .347 (17 for 49) with 10 RBIs, eight runs, four doubles, a triple, and a home run. The cleanup man has a .429 on-base percentage. With Hand leading the way, C.R. North, which sits atop the Suburban One League National Conference with an 8-1 mark, is bidding for its second consecutive PIAA District 1 Class 4A title.

A single would have been fine, Angie Carty said. "Just a poke," the Souderton senior said afterward. "Anything. " With two runners on and her team up by only a run in the second inning, it didn't matter to Carty how the ball got into play. She just knew she had to put it there. The leadoff batter delivered for the Big Red, sending an outside pitch to right field for a triple and sending two of her teammates home. The two-run triple ended up being the difference maker for Souderton on Saturday afternoon in a pivotal nonconference win over Council Rock North, 3-2. "She's one of the most aggressive on the team," Alyssa McCormick said of Carty.

When last we left Brendan Patterson, the Council Rock South senior dominated on faceoffs in the Golden Hawks' first lacrosse win of the season. On Friday at rival Council Rock North, however, Patterson's goal-scoring ability took center stage as South claimed a come-from-behind 7-5 victory and first place in Suburban One League play. Patterson, who will play at Binghamton next season, scored a game-high four goals and helped the Hawks (5-3, 2-1) dominate in faceoff wins. A teammate's fourth-quarter quip told the story best.

After winning his first game as Council Rock South's lacrosse coach, Mike Murray already felt nostalgic. The Golden Hawks had just dispatched host Archbishop Ryan, 14-9, Monday afternoon when Murray huddled his victorious Hawks. "Brendan Patterson," Murray said, "I miss you already. " Patterson, a senior faceoff man who will play at Binghamton next season, won all 14 of his faceoffs, helping C.R. South jump out to an early 6-1 advantage. "That was really the difference in the game," Murray said.

Last year, Riley Palmer's postseason ended before it even began. The Council Rock South junior was in the midst of a 28-0 sophomore campaign when he missed weight by two pounds, making him ineligible to compete at 106 pounds in the sectional tournament. After placing seventh in the state tournament as a freshman, Palmer was shocked to find out his chance to make it back to Hershey in consecutive years had been taken away from him. "It was kind of devastating for me at first, like I didn't really know how to deal with it," Palmer said.
