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.

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.

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.

Tommy McNamara could be excused for his incredulity. The Haverford School senior hasn't played much lacrosse at rival Malvern Prep, let alone scored a game-winning goal.
