A rare scene began to unfold Friday night at War Memorial Stadium for Central Bucks West's season-opening football game. Something was wrong, terribly wrong. There was confusion and angst on the sideline. There were missed assignments, fumbles and interceptions. There were even a pair of first-quarter time-outs called in an effort to settle things down for the host Bucks. That was the bad news. The good news was that, although C.B. West trailed Cumberland Valley by 6-0 at halftime, 24 minutes still remained.

The Central Bucks West girls' soccer team will face highly regarded Cumberland Valley in the opening round of the state playoffs at 1 p.m. tomorrow at Northeastern High in Manchester, York County. The Eagles (19-1-1), from the Mid-Penn Conference, are champions of the District 3 tournament. The team was the runner-up to Emmaus, the District 11 titlist, in the state tournament a year ago. "They're good at every position, and they have a strong soccer tradition," West coach Chris Freudig said.

There was a moment during the regular season when it dawned on Central Bucks West girls' soccer coach Chris Freudig that the Bucks might be playing a little longer in the playoffs than many people believed. Trailing Neshaminy, 1-0, in the second-to-last game of the season May 5, two key West players, defender Christine Murta and goalkeeper Nikki La Croce, left the game with injuries. West responded to the personnel setbacks with determination and came back for a 2-1 win. That plow-ahead attitude - and an unbending defense - has helped extend West's season until today.

When you're playing good soccer, you tend to overlook the fact that your opponent in the first round of the PIAA state tournament is ranked No. 2 in the country by one publication. Luckily for the Council Rock girls' team, it's playing good soccer. Proving rankings and records are meaningless in the postseason, the Indians received two goals from junior Becky Morris and beat Cumberland Valley, 4-3, Saturday at Tulpehocken High near Reading. As a result, Rock will play today against District 11 champion Parkland, with a berth in Saturday's state final on the line.

What many regard as the best season in Central Bucks East girls' basketball history came to an end last night. The Patriots (28-4) lost to Cumberland Valley (30-2), 51-43, at Coatesville High School in the PIAA Class AAAA quarterfinals. East's anticipated rematch against Cheltenham, which beat the Patriots in the District 1 championship game, will not come after all. Instead, Cumberland Valley, the District 3 champion, will face Cheltenham in one state semifinal game on Tuesday.

Everything went wrong for the Coatesville Red Raiders yesterday against Cumberland Valley in a PIAA Class AAAA state semifinal football game at Villanova University. In the first half, the Raiders committed two penalties to stall their opening drive, twice snapped the ball over their punter and gained only 43 net yards. "We were missing blocks and arguing with ourselves," halfback Walt Washington said. "Nothing was working, and we got too far behind. " Against a team as talented as Cumberland Valley, that formula figured to result in a loss.

The secret to Downingtown's success in football is this: A lot of players want the ball, and once they get it, they know what to do with it. With fullback Aaron Harris leading the way, the Whippets (13-0) cruised past Cumberland Valley (12-2) last night, 28-7, at Villanova in the PIAA Class AAAA state semifinals. The Whippets will play for the state championship at 4 p.m. next Saturday in Altoona. They will face McKeesport, which topped Erie Central, 7-6, in the other semifinal.

The Rappo brothers continue to make noise in PIAA wrestling circles. Rick Rappo won a PIAA individual title in 2004, Matt won in 2005 and 2006, and Mark won in 2008. Now Billy and Matt are trying to push Council Rock South to a PIAA State Class AAA team title. Billy Rappo pinned at 103 pounds and Matt earned a technical fall at 135 pounds as the Golden Hawks downed District 3 runner-up Cumberland Valley, 44-24, in a state quarterfinal match Friday. Billy pinned Sewey Faruque in 1 minute, while Matt beat Travis Hench, 18-2, in 4 minutes, 7 seconds.

It was a long journey into a soggy night. West Chester Henderson then got a lesson in championship-caliber football, shook hands with Cumberland Valley after losing, 34-15, and got back on the bus for another 100 miles through the rain. "We play teams like Cumberland Valley," Henderson coach Joe Walsh said Friday night, "because we want our program to be like this program. " But six losses in nine games this season make long rides like Friday's that much longer. The Warriors played hard - they've faced two of the better teams in the state in Coatesville and Cumberland Valley on back-to-back weekends - and never backed down.

After a too-close-for-comfort win in the District 1 final, the Council Rock girls' soccer team is set to begin defense of its state championship. Cumberland Valley represents the first hurdle. The Indians (20-1-1) will take on District 3's third-place finisher tomorrow at 3 p.m. at Neshaminy High. Council Rock coach Jim Dunn watched Cumberland Valley (22-2) defeat Manheim Township, 2-1, in overtime in the consolation round of the District 3 playoffs. "They're almost a mirror image of us," he said.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Nicole Munger walked down the tunnel in the Giant Center, heading away from the locker room. "You know the hardest part?" she said. "It's taking off the jersey. " For four seasons, no one wore a Central Bucks West basketball jersey better than Munger. In the history of the program, there was probably no one more talented who ever pulled a Bucks' jersey over her head. The Michigan-bound senior put No. 33 on for the last time Friday. And then, after a crushing, 40-35, defeat to Cumberland Valley in the PIAA Class AAAA state final, she took it off for the last time.
