Haverford School's players may never get their mud-caked uniforms completely clean, but don't expect the effects of their latest loss to linger. Coach Ron Algeo said the Fords would recover mentally from Saturday night's rainy, 28-6 homecoming loss to Chestnut Hill Academy. "We were prepared for a closer game physically," Algeo said. "We had a great week of practice. The kids didn't give up ever, ever, ever. They will be ready to come back Monday. " The Fords (0-4) may not have any emotional scars from Saturday's defeat, but their physical condition is another thing.

Connor Gregory was frustrated. Things didn't seem to be working out for the Haverford School junior in the first half of the Fords' Inter-Ac League soccer game against Penn Charter. Sure, he scored off a tremendous free kick in the fourth minute, but after that, shots were just missing the net for the forward. At the intermission, Gregory made sure, he said, to "settle" himself. He even apologized to his teammates in the huddle before the second half started, taking responsibility for his squad being deadlocked with Penn Charter after 40 minutes of play.

While Haverford School coach Mike Murphy talked to his football team circled around him about its resiliency, quarterback Brendan Burke stood by himself.

Swimming coach Bill Palmer thought his team at The Haverford School would win only three meets this year. The Fords have already exceeded his expectations by winning four of their first five meets, two last week. Haverford School edged visiting Haverford High on Wednesday, 41-35, in a nonleague meet. One day later, Haverford School beat Upper Darby, 97-67. "The boys have been surprising me," Palmer said. "It's a great team with a lot of character. These boys are doing everything a coach can ask them to do. " Palmer didn't have to stress the need for a win in the freestyle relay against Haverford High.

Haverford School's Matt Galambos, a rugged senior linebacker, committed to Pittsburgh on Thursday. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder, who doubles as a tight end, also had scholarship offers from Rutgers, Syracuse, and Temple. Harvard and Yale were in the mix, too. "I think he's been a bit underrated," Haverford School coach Mike Murphy said. "I really see him as a kid who's going to make a big impact at the college level. His best football is still ahead of him. " Last season, while helping the Fords to a 6-4 record, Galambos earned Inquirer third-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania honors as a tight end. In the Inter-Ac League, he was a first-team pick on both sides of the ball.

Charles Kelly keeps his lacrosse stick in his team's ice cooler. Kelly handles faceoff duties for the Malvern Prep lacrosse team. During summer tournaments last year, the weather was so hot it caused the head of his stick to bend back almost all the way to the shaft. The flexibility left him with a competitive disadvantage. He had to find a solution. "My dad came up to me and said, 'Why don't you try sticking it in the cooler? It will cool it off and help it stay in place,' " Kelly said.

The first rule of running trick plays is to conceal the notion that trickery is afoot. Malvern Prep junior wide receiver Matt Daller did that twice Saturday during the Friars' 34-7 Inter-Ac victory at Germantown Academy. The first came on fourth and 5 near midfield when the punter Garrett Reilly flipped the ball on a reverse to Quinn McCahon. He threw to Daller for an 18-yard gain near the Friars' sideline. "I think the biggest thing was not to tip it off and look where I was going," Daller said.

Mickey Kober yelled out for a teammate to bring Kevin Carter, bound to a wheelchair after undergoing knee surgery, to midfield for the coin toss before Haverford School's recent game against Father Judge. Fittingly, Tommy Toal, a junior who has taken over for his close friend at quarterback, volunteered to handle the gesture that stirred the crowd at Sabol Field. "Yeah, that was completely spontaneous," Toal said. "I happened to be right there, and I was happy to do it. Kevin is still an important part of our team.

Tommy Toal missed one heck of a finish. The junior quarterback for Haverford School might have been the only person on the school's Main Line campus Saturday afternoon whose eyes weren't trained on the final play against Father Judge. Needing a touchdown to tie, Judge quarterback Rob King, who carried the Crusaders late, dropped back from the 8-yard line and fired into the end zone. Junior Aaron Hudson intercepted the pass with 33.8 seconds left, ensuring the Fords a thrilling, 29-22, nonleague victory.
