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.

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.

Garnet Valley baseball coach Scott Armstrong said he didn't think his club was a Southern Chester County League favorite this spring.

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.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Haley Warden stood near the 10-yard line, awaiting the referee's signal. The early momentum Garnet Valley had built dissolved in the second half of Saturday's PIAA girls' lacrosse final. The Jaguars' five-goal lead over Springfield (Delco) had dwindled to one. "Let's go, Haley," a fan hollered from the Hersheypark Stadium grandstand. The ref's whistle blew, and Warden charged the net and scored off the restarted play to put Garnet Valley back on track. She scored again three minutes later, and the Jaguars rolled to a 13-9 win. The state title was their third in the last four seasons and the first for second-year coach Jenny Purvis.

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.

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.
