Once again, West Catholic's overall speed, especially on defense, was way too much for Dunmore. Holding the Bucks to 111 total yards and prolific rusher Michael Perry to a season-low 52 yards on 18 carries, the Burrs notched a 13-0 victory last night in a PIAA Class AA first-round state playoff at Palisades High's Walter T. Rohrer Stadium. Darting and dashing for yardage all night, West Catholic's Brandon Hollomon carried 33 times for a career-best 216 yards as West ousted the District 2 champion for the second straight season.

Bristol's halftime lead proved futile on Friday night as the Warriors fell to Dunmore, 34-12, in the State Class A quarterfinals at Valley View. Willie Sutton's 1-yard touchdown run put Bristol ahead, 12-7, in the second quarter. It would be the last points the offense could produce as District 2 champion Dunmore rattled off 27 unanswered points. Tight end Tyler Kelly scored Bristol's first touchdown on a 38-yard pass from Trevor Leone to take a 7-6 lead late in the first quarter.

If the Lansdale Catholic Crusaders want to continue to march through the state playoffs, they are going to need their defensive line to be as fearsome tonight as it was last week. For it was a stepped-up effort from the front four that sparked the Crusaders' last-second win over Northwestern Lehigh, 20-16, last Friday in the opening round of the PIAA Class AA state football playoffs. And tonight, LC plays a team that all season long has shown it would much rather run the ball than pass it. The Crusaders (9-3)

Tara Macciocco did not know what to expect when she felt contact, heard the whistle, and turned around to look at referee Jack Brand with 18 seconds left in Dunmore's 57-53 PIAA Class AA state quarterfinal win in girls' basketball over Merion Mercy on Saturday. "I thought he was going to call a walk," Macciocco said. "Then I saw him turn around and point at their player (Maureen DiJulia). " Brand, who called an intentional foul on DiJulia with Dunmore leading, 52-51, said PIAA rules prevented him from commenting on the call.

Mike Todd scored 26 points, and St. Pius X withstood a desperate rally for the second straight game yesterday to defeat Dunmore, 77-69, in a PIAA Class AA boys' basketball state quarterfinal game at Martz Hall. The Winged Lions (23-6) led by 11 points, at 63-52, midway through the fourth quarter when the Bucks (18-9) went on a 17-6 tear and tied the game with a minute to play on Pat Clark's sixth three-point shot. Following a time-out, Todd worked free for a driving layup to put Pius ahead with 45 seconds left, and the Lions iced the game on six straight free throws by Mike Ames (21 points, 12 rebounds)

As it has showed much of this season, Lansdale Catholic has an unusual - maybe even sadistic - craving for dramatic, come-from-behind victories. The players, however, have failed to consider the toll its latest two comeback wins have taken on 59-year-old head coach Jim Algeo. First, the Crusaders overcame a 16-7, fourth-quarter deficit to stun Northwestern Lehigh, 20-16, in the opening round of the PIAA Class AA state football playoffs. Then Lansdale Catholic continued that modus operandi in Friday's quarterfinal-round matchup against Dunmore.

At first, Sean Kelly had a tough time explaining what exactly happened in last night's 21-14, PIAA Class AA quarterfinal loss to Dunmore at Memorial Stadium. Once he found the words, Lansdale Catholic's junior tight end said it just right. "What happened is, we came out fired up, wanting to make plays," he said, "and in the second quarter, it just fell apart. " A game that went completely Lansdale Catholic's way for the first 12 minutes went almost completely Dunmore's way in the final 36. It was a bitter ending for the District 1 champion Crusaders, who watched their high-powered offense fall flat against the Bucks' rugged defense.

Putting on another show for its fans and the Dunmore faithful, which brought at least 10 charter buses to Northeast Philadelphia last night, explosive West Catholic racked up 517 yards of total offense and romped to a 49-21 victory in a PIAA Class AA state quarterfinal at Charlie Martin Memorial Stadium. Curtis Drake, an electrifying quarterback and Penn State recruit, was again a catalyst. The 6-foot, 165-pound senior carried 11 times for 173 yards and a pair of scores. He also completed 4 of 7 passes for 91 yards and two TDs. On the third play of West Catholic's first possession, Drake lofted a 53-yard scoring pass to senior wideout Eric Young.

In Class A, Dunmore (11-0), which has clinched the Region 1 state playoff bid, recorded a 14-12 win over Mount Carmel in the Eastern Conference playoffs. With the win, Dunmore will now face Berwick (12-0) in a battle of unbeatens for the Eastern Conference football championship on Saturday at 1 p.m. at a site to be determined. A Dunmore loss to Berwick next week would not have an effect on its Class A state playoff status, because PIAA rules do not penalize a small school for losing to a larger school in district postseason play.

SLATINGTON, Pa. - C.J. Szydlik found two of his assistants in the middle of an emptying field at Northern Lehigh. After the Neumann-Goretti football coach gave his postgame speech to his players, he said what he needed to. He just hugged the other coaches. Saturday was almost a microcosm of the Saints' season. Neumann-Goretti started at 3-4 before winning its first Catholic League title since 1954 and a city championship. This time, N-G wasn't able to come all the way back.

It has been a breakout season for Great Valley under first-year head coach Dan Ellis. The Patriots are 12-1, own an eight-game winning streak, and are the District 1 champions for the first time after turning back previously undefeated Springfield (Delco) by 21-0 last week. Next, in trying to keep alive a banner campaign, is a PIAA Class AAA quarterfinal against powerhouse and defending state titlist Archbishop Wood at 7 p.m. Friday at Northeast. The Vikings, who turned back Imhotep Charter by 42-34 in last week's District 12 final, arrive as a considerable favorite.

The early-morning car accident that left Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane with a concussion last month occurred hours before she was scheduled to testify in a grand jury investigation into possible improper leaks by her office, according to people with knowledge of the case. It was the second time this fall Kane canceled plans to take the stand, the sources said. Kane was scheduled to appear that morning in a Montgomery County courtroom, where a special prosecutor is examining how confidential records about a 2009 investigation run by her Republican predecessors became public.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - The celebration was subdued. And anyone who has seen the Neumann-Goretti girls' basketball team play this season knows there is nothing subtle about the squad. The Saints are flashy. They are quick, they are athletic, and they have been dominating teams for 32 minutes all season. As the buzzer sounded Tuesday night at Freedom High, Neumann-Goretti players walked off the floor quietly. They had just defeated Dunmore, 55-30, to advance to the PIAA Class AA state final, but you couldn't tell by looking at them.

It's Interboro's turn at trying to derail the wrecking machine that Archbishop Wood has been in the PIAA Class AAA state quarterfinals. Wood beat West Chester Rustin, 37-7, in 2008; eliminated Pottsgrove by 30-28 and 70-14 in 2009 and 2011, respectively; and showed Strath Haven the door, 24-14, in 2010. The Bucs, fresh off winning their first District 1 AAA title, will clash with the District 12 champion Vikings in a quarterfinal set for 7 p.m. Friday at Plymouth Whitemarsh. Many had wrongly counted Steve Lennox's squad out after it was whipped by Del-Val League champ Academy Park, 49-26, in Week 10. The Bucs (11-2)
