Rarig walked away with disappointment and disillusionment. His team was eliminated from the playoffs, as visiting Lower Moreland beat the Rams, 3-1. Lower Moreland advanced to tonight's semifinals at Haverford High.

Malcolm Trottie, who had coached the Harriton boys' basketball team for 2 1/2 seasons, has resigned to become an assistant men's coach at Beaver College.

Trottie, 30, who had been the junior varsity coach at Harriton before moving up, saw the team finish that season 4-15. Over the last two seasons, the Rams were 3-36, but Trottie expected them to be much improved this season.

For the first 13 minutes of the field hockey game between Harriton and Interboro, it was tough to tell just which team was the undefeated one and which had scored its first goal of the season only the previous week. But some way, somewhere, the cream is supposed to rise to the top. And it did. Harriton (5-0 league) came forward in time to squash the Bucs, 5-1, in a Del-Val League contest Tuesday afternoon at Interboro. The loss left Bucs coach Diane Lowthert wondering why her team picked midway through the first half to lose its intensity.
