Derrick West didn't look satisfied. The Garnet Valley sophomore seemed unimpressed by the fireworks display he and his team watched in the postgame huddle after the Jaguars' 47-7 home win against Penncrest on Friday night. The show, which Garnet Valley put on to honor the seniors, lasted more than 10 minutes. By all accounts, it should have been a perfect moment for West and the Jaguars. Garnet Valley and Penncrest entered the game undefeated and ranked among the top teams in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, but by the end, it was clear which was the better team.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Their preseason goals were modest: Just win a pair of district playoff games and advance to the quarterfinals. After failing to win a district playoff game last season, their sights seemed fair, junior midfielder Halley Barnes said. The Garnet Valley Jaguars far surpassed their modest expectations, and instead of ending their season exactly three weeks ago, they played on and on. They captured the PIAA state girls' lacrosse title Saturday, holding off a late rally by Downingtown East for a 17-14 victory at HersheyPark Stadium.

Bishop Shanahan coach Vic Bruno felt his team played its "best game of the year" Thursday in defeating visiting Garnet Valley, 5-4, in a Southern Chester County League game. "They felt like playing today," he said, "and were all fired up. " That hasn't been the case all year. In fact, his team played very poorly in losing, 15-3, to visiting Phoenixville on Wednesday in a nonleague contest. Against Garnet Valley, Shanahan scored a run in the first on a Laura Sullivan single, a groundout and an error on a ground ball to second baseman Angela Billups off the bat of Monica Corum.

Mike Ricci's football squad has posted a 51-8 mark (.864 winning percentage) in league play, with two outright championships (2008 and 2011) and one shared (2009, with Ridley). This season is no different, as the Jaguars are 9-0, 8-0 in the Central League, and set to enter the 16-team PIAA District 1 Class AAAA playoff tournament as one of the top seeds.

Garnet Valley baseball coach Scott Armstrong said he didn't think his club was a Southern Chester County League favorite this spring. Yes, the defending champions had some experienced players back, and had some pitching depth. But the Jaguars also had lost six starters from the team that had won the league and District 1 Class AA titles. Armstrong was forced to shake up his infield, the big move being the switch of Matt Miller from third base to shortstop. Miller's adjustment has been nothing short of fabulous.

Upper Dublin found out first hand last year that playbacks are no place to try and reach the state tournament from. Wednesday night, Allison Chernow made sure the Cardinals would not have to go through all that again. The junior point guard tied things with a pair of free throws at the end of regulation and then made a layup late in overtime to send host Upper Dublin to a 36-33 victory over Perkiomen Valley in the second round of the District 1 Class AAAA tournament. The win guarantees a spot in states for the Cardinals, who fell a game short in playbacks last year.

With four starters returning from last season's Central League championship team, the conventional wisdom was that Garnet Valley was primed for a repeat. That wisdom proved correct Monday night, as the Jaguars defeated Strath Haven, 40-31, in the Central League girls' basketball championship game at Harriton. "It feels good," said GV coach Joseph Woods. "It was a much harder road because all the other teams were motivated to take us down. It's a really competitive league. So to win the league two years in a row is quite an achievement for our team and the program.

At their Garnet Valley home, Jordan Ireland is the typical big sister to Maddie. She's the responsible one, the one in charge, the more controlling of the two. Separated by just 17 months and one grade, Maddie, 16, jokingly calls Jordan, 18, "mom. " When the two guards for the Garnet Valley girls' basketball team are on the court, however, things are a little bit different. On the floor for the Jaguars (3-0), Maddie is the one Jordan listens to, the one who grabs the bull by the horns, the sister who has ideas on what the team should do next.

Pennsbury ran for 558 yards last week and had the same intention for Friday's District 1 Class AAAA quarterfinal against Garnet Valley. "The game plan was to run the ball," Falcons coach Galen Snyder said. "Just keep running the ball. " It took some time, but the plan panned out. Pennsbury scored 31 unanswered points in the second half, including 28 in the fourth quarter, en route to a 45-14 home win. "We just hung with the game plan," Snyder said. "We wore them down a little bit. " Rutgers recruit Charles Snorweah, who had rushed for 427 yards and seven touchdowns last week, scored on runs of 56 and 60 yards.

Fans of run-dominated action should be in Fairless Hills at 7 p.m. Friday for the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA playoff quarterfinal between Garnet Valley and Pennsbury. The seventh-seeded Jaguars employ a triple-option attack. Second-seeded Pennsbury counters with a wing-T or I-formation scheme. Last week, with running backs Victor Delgado and Daulton Hose sidelined by injuries, the Falcons turned to the I, with Charles Snorweah lined up at tailback and Luke Snyder at fullback. Snorweah benefited from the switch, carrying 29 times for a career-high 427 yards and seven touchdowns in a 63-55 win over Downingtown West.

There are 26 football playoff contests on the slate this weekend. We'll provide game-by-game predictions Friday. For now, here's our take on how the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA, AAA, and AA tournaments will play out. District 1 Class AAAA. While there's no clear-cut favorite to take top honors in the 16-team field, it's a good bet that one of four squads claims the title: No. 1 seed Coatesville, No. 2 Pennsbury, No. 5 Downingtown East, and No. 9 North Penn. Possible dark horses are No. 8 West Chester Henderson, which could be dangerous if it gets past first-round foe North Penn, and No. 3 West Chester Rustin, which, with a favorable draw, should at least reach the semifinals.
