They practiced the play all season. They used it once - in the seventh inning of the state semifinals. "The play of the game," Burlington Township baseball coach Jason Stec said of the bunt-rotation play that helped the Falcons secure a 4-3 victory over Northern Burlington in the Group 3 state semifinals Tuesday at Rider University. "It was huge," said Burlington Township senior Ryan Bell, who triggered the big play by bouncing off the mound, fielding the ball, and firing to third.

The Pennsbury softball team had gotten familiar with the concept of waiting. Waiting for their final home game of the season. Waiting to earn a spot in the state tournament. And for the nine seniors, waiting to see if they were about to play their final game in a Falcons uniform. Wednesday's 8-3 victory over West Chester Henderson in a District 1 Class AAAA quarterfinal had been a long time coming. The game was scheduled for last Friday and then Saturday, postponed both times because of the weather, and then was rained out on Tuesday.

EVEN AS F. ARTHUR McMorris was being dive-bombed - with just a broom between him and the fastest animal in the world - he had nothing but pride for his aggressors. "The more aggressive they are, the more we like it," McMorris said. "That means they're better parents. " McMorris, the peregrine-falcon coordinator for the Pennsylvania Game Commission, spent yesterday morning inside City Hall's tower banding four healthy baby peregrine falcons that he estimated to be about 30 days old. The birds are the offspring of one of just 33 pairs of peregrine falcons known in the state.

As Pennsbury coach Joe Pesci knows well, Falcons righthander Brandon Garrett would rather undergo complicated root canal than be pulled from a game. "We were playing Harry S Truman and I was walking toward the mound," Pesci recalled. "He's like, 'I'm not coming out of this game.' I said to him, 'Calm down. I'm just coming out to talk to you.' " Garrett's workhorse approach to pitching has been evident in his Pennsbury career. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound senior has worked 13 complete games over the last three seasons.

It was the day that the Pennsbury softball team was supposed to compete in its season opener. Instead, the Falcons found themselves inside the school's gym, hitting off a machine and playing "pepper. " The hype for the season to begin was already at a fever pitch when the Falcons held a pasta party the night before, but when they woke up that Monday morning and looked out their windows, snow was falling and the ground was covered. Texts starting flying between teammates. They wouldn't be playing, would they?

THE ATLANTA Falcons have found a replacement for John Abraham by reaching an agreement with free-agent defensive end Osi Umenyiora on a 2-year contract. The Falcons released the 34-year-old Abraham, who led the team with 10 sacks in 2012, on March 1. With the 31-year-old Umenyiora, the Falcons have a slightly younger replacement at defensive end. Umenyiora had only six sacks for the Giants in 2012. He had a career-high 14 1/2 sacks in 2005, but has reached double figures in only one of the last 4 years - 11 1/2 in 2010.

Tony Gonzalez, who has more catches than any tight end in NFL history, announced Tuesday he is returning to the Falcons for the 2013 season. Gonzalez, the Falcons' leading receiver last season, said during the season he was 95 percent sure he would retire after the 2012 season. His productive season made it difficult to stick with the retirement plan. While Gonzalez is staying, Titans left guard Steve Hutchinson has decided to retire after 12 NFL seasons, the last cut short by a knee injury that limited him to 12 games.
