That meant Monday wasn't feasible as a makeup date, so the game was played in the heavy rains. "We explained that to Bristol coach George Gatto," George coach John Gleeson said.

When an opponent takes the field against Valley Forge Military Academy's lacrosse team, one thing is certain: that foe is going to face a well- disciplined team and a bunch of intensely motivated Trojans who simply won't quit. After all, what more would one expect from a military school? But not every opponent gets an opportunity to see the reverse side of this, such as George School did on Friday in a Northeast League contest. With discipline comes disciplinary action, and the Cougars came out the better for it. With several key players missing from the Trojans' roster because they were "temporarily ineligible," George School ran past Valley Forge, 8-0. Among those missing the action for Valley Forge were midfielder Courtney Rogers, the team's leading scorer with 8 goals in four games, and Steve Grillo, also a midfielder and a senior who lately had seen time as the starting goaltender.

The Red Raiders, who whipped Germantown Academy in their previous game, improved to 2-2. In their 31-12 win at Princeton Day School on Sept. 30, the Cougars allowed two touchdowns on kick returns, but the offense overcame them.

Seth Shipon searched high and low for his jump shot through George School's first eight games this season. His efforts, though, were mostly in vain. For Shipon, one of the blessings of the holiday season was the reappearance of the shooting touch that had mysteriously vanished for several weeks. A 5-foot-11 guard, Shipon shot 8 for 11 from the field (3 for 4 from three-point territory) and 2 for 2 from the free-throw line en route to a season-high 21 points as the Cougars upset Upper Dublin, 67-60, Thursday in the championship game of the Dick Dougherty Memorial boys' basketball tournament.

Until Friday, the girls' lacrosse team at George School was doing everything it was supposed to be doing: beating the weaker teams on its schedule and losing to the stronger ones. Then Westtown School broke the pattern. George School (4-3, 0-1 in the Friends League) led at halftime, but made costly mistakes in the second half, losing 10-9. Although Westtown is by no means a league patsy, Cougars coach Sheilagh Smith had entered the game expecting to win. "It's a big disappointment to me and to our team," she said.
