EVERY WEEKDAY morning at 8 o'clock, after he drops his kids off at school, a familiar face strides into weight room in the Flyers' practice facility. He trains hard, mostly out of the view of teammates and the public, hoping and praying for one more chance on the ice. Kimmo Timonen, 39, has not played hockey since April 30.

Downingtown East has never been here before, but Courtney McGinty has. The Cougars assistant coach played field hockey for Downingtown before it split into two campuses 11 years ago, and was the team's cocaptain during a 1997 run that ended with a 1-0 loss to Emmaus in the PIAA Class AAA championship game. Now, Downingtown East will compete against Central Bucks South on Saturday in the school's first state-quarterfinal appearance, and McGinty is hopeful her team can make a run. She has been leading the squad since the program's head coach, Stephanie Bullock, gave birth to a girl shortly after the team's 3-1 loss to Unionville in the District 1 semifinals.
