Serving as a backup to Ridley's Mike Shaak is not the loneliest occupation this side of being the Maytag repair man. It only appears that way, as the 6-foot, 9-inch Shaak rarely departs a game unless the competitive fabric has frayed and the only points to be scored are of the garbage variety. But with 1 minute, 3 seconds remaining in yesterday's PIAA Class AAAA second-round game against Emmaus, Roger Bateman toed the foul line - the unlikeliest of potential heroes - as Shaak watched from an unaccustomed seat on the bench.

Randy Cuthbert has stepped down as football coach at Pennridge to take over the program at District 11's Emmaus, according to multiple sources. Cuthbert went 55-43 in eight seasons with the Rams. Last year's squad was 12-2, claimed the Suburban One League Continental Conference title, and advanced to the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA semifinals before losing to Spring-Ford. Cuthbert, who starred at Central Bucks West and Duke, and Pennridge athletic director David Babb could not be reached for comment.

The Unionville field hockey team has gotten its wish: a rematch with defending Class AAA state champion Emmaus, the team that knocked the Indians out of the PIAA playoffs last season. And to make it more enticing this time, the rematch will occur in the championship final Saturday at Ursinus College. Game time is 1 p.m. The Indians, who fell to Emmaus in last year's opening round, gained the finals with a 1-0 semifinal win over Lower Dauphin Tuesday at Tulpehocken High. Emmaus earned the right to defend its title by downing Boyertown, 1-0, in the second game of a doubleheader at the Berks County high school.

Central Bucks East has solved a puzzle that has troubled area field hockey teams for many seasons. The Patriots posted a 2-0 win Monday over state powerhouse Emmaus. For the second season in a row, the Patriots have beaten the Hornets. The Hornets have won five state titles in the 1990s and are 10-time defending PIAA District 11 champions. In going unbeaten in their first five games before playing C.B. East, the Hornets outscored opponents by 22-0. "We were so focused and so prepared," the Patriots' Rachael Bloemker said.

To beat Downingtown in girls' basketball, teams need depth to counter the Whippets' withering pressure defense. They must have a three-point attack to counter the offensive runs this talented team always seems to make. Last night, in the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament, Emmaus showed none of those qualities. And the Hornets were dispatched, 54-36. Emmaus won the East Conference, finished second in the District 11 tournament and entered last night's game with a 24-3 record.

Souderton's field hockey players began the season inexperienced, with little feel for working together - and it showed. The Indians were thrashed by Council Rock, 4-0, on Aug. 29, but two months later a cohesive squad found itself playing arguably the nation's best high school field hockey team in the PIAA state semifinals. The Indians fell by 1-0 yesterday to District 11 champion Emmaus, which has gone 51-0-1 over the last two seasons. But on the field at Quakertown High, they more than proved that they were one of the best teams in the state.

So far, Cheltenham has been unstoppable. The Panthers (30-1) dropped Central Dauphin, 58-44, in the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA state girls' playoffs at Garden Spot High School last night. The Panthers advanced to the tournament quarterfinals on Friday against Cedar Crest, the No. 2 seed from District 1. Cedar Crest beat Council Rock, 55-47, last night. A site and time have yet to be determined. Kelly Gould's suffocating defense was the key against Central Dauphin (23-8)

When a team is not satisfied with a 25-point victory, there's something very right about it. Council Rock coach Lou Palkovics tried to cheer up his team, which eliminated Emmaus, 71-46, in the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA state playoffs last night at Reading High's Geigle Complex. "These girls are never satisfied," Palkovics said. The Indians advanced to Friday's quarterfinals against Central Dauphin, a 55-49 winner last night over Downingtown. Council Rock (30-1)

Abington had to wait three days to play its postponed game at Emmaus, but the Galloping Ghosts returned with a 37-12 win last night, their third victory in the last four games. Abington won the game, which was rescheduled from Friday night, in its usual offensive fashion: by turning loose its stable of fleet runners. Terrill Johnson gained 151 yards on 13 carries and Bryan Blackstone had 121 yards on just 10 rushes to lead the Ghosts' 351-yard ground game. Abington (5-5)

It was going to be emotional no matter what happened when Pennridge faced Emmaus and its former coach Randy Cuthbert in the season opener Friday. But the game lived up to its billing and then some. Pennridge scored with no time left in the fourth quarter to force overtime, and Mike Class' third touchdown run delivered the Rams a 33-27 victory. Pennridge trailed, 27-12, heading into the fourth. Class began the comeback with a touchdown run, and Matt Pasquale found Micah Stutzman for both a touchdown and two-point conversion to tie it. Cuthbert coached at Pennridge for eight seasons before taking the Emmaus job this year.

After focusing on his teaching career and the health-related issues of family members in recent years, Jeff Hollenbach says the timing was right for a return to the sideline. Then came the call from Pennridge principal Thomas Creeden, inquiring about his interest in returning for a second stint as the school's football coach. "I thought to myself, 'This would be nice. It would get me thinking about something else,' " Hollenbach said. "And I only wanted to coach at Pennridge. I didn't want to go anywhere else.

News of the death of University of Virginia women's player Yeardley Love rocked the lacrosse world. Her body was discovered in her apartment May 3, just weeks before the NCAA tournament and her college graduation. The tragedy hit close to home for many of the players on Radnor High's girls' lacrosse team, who Friday won the District 1 tournament over Springfield (Delco). Six seniors on the Red Raiders squad are headed to play Division I lacrosse in the fall. So the team went online and bought bright-orange socks with the Cavaliers emblem to wear during their games.

Although Pennsbury lost to perennial power Emmaus, 2-1, in the opening round of the PIAA Class AAA field hockey playoffs Tuesday, Falcons coach Brooke Bergmann said that her players can be proud of their performance. "It hurts to lose but we played outstanding hockey," Bergmann said. "We had a couple of mistakes and Emmaus took advantage of them, which good teams do. " Bergmann, who stepped in for Tracy Larson this season while Larson was on maternity leave, said the Falcons modified their game to cope with Emmaus' style.

There are fewer than 400 girls at Notre Dame Academy, but the Irish have been making big noise against a few of the area's perennial cross-country powers this season. Even coach Mike McMillan has to concede that his team has some exceptional depth. So much so that he has chosen to run his team in the championship race at the various meets they have entered. That means going against the best teams. Last month, the Irish placed first at the Abington Invitational. At the Briarwood Invitational at Fairmount Park's Belmont Plateau a week later, the Irish ran in the championship race.

This was an example of why Conestoga deserves lofty rankings in boys' lacrosse. As Emmaus found out yesterday, nothing appears to bother the Pioneers. The Green Hornets had an early lead, solid goalkeeping, and an impressive rally. But . . . Conestoga still defeated Emmaus, 9-4, in a PIAA state quarterfinal at Harriton High School. "It's a team that [refuses] to lose," said Conestoga senior attackman Paul Mita, whose squad is ranked second in the state by Phillylacrosse.

Nicole Leone scored the only goal of the game to give Council Rock North a 1-0 win over Hershey at North Penn in the opening round of the PIAA Class AAA field hockey playoffs yesterday. The win earned the Indians, the runner-up in District 1, a quarterfinal date Saturday with perennial state power Emmaus, and Leone said she and her teammates are ready. The District 11 champion Green Hornets defeated Methacton, District 1's fifth-place team, 4-0. "We played Mount St. Joseph in the district championship game and I think Emmaus would be similar to them," said Leone, whose goal was her seventh of the season.
