It seemed like a normal high school football game, with Shawnee leading Cherokee, 7-6, heading into the third quarter of the first round of the South Jersey Group 4 playoffs last night. But then there were the penalties. And the sacks. And the fake punt, the fumble and the interception. When it was over, a game that started routinely finished with a flourish. Seventh-seeded Shawnee upended second-seeded Cherokee, 21-6, to advance to the second round. Shawnee moves on to face Washington Township, which advanced with a 23-14 victory over Lenape.

To describe Coatesville as devastated after Friday night's grim 3-0 home loss to Salesianum (Del.) would be a severe understatement. The Red Raiders had just lost to a team that entered the game 0-5. The Sallies had so many penalties that they faced a second and 50 at one point. Coatesville had 103 total yards and two offensive plays in Sallies territory in the first half. But even as poorly as the Raiders were playing, particularly on offense, coach Jack Helm thought they would win. "Ever since I've been here, and that's 10 years, you always feel like somebody or something is going to happen," said Helm, seated against a wall in a quiet gymnasium.

Late in the fourth quarter yesterday, the trickle of rain had turned into a raw autumn deluge, but few in the crowd of 15,241 made a move to leave their seats. Franklin Field had suddenly come alive. In the north stands, the Bucknell fans waved soggy pompons and pleaded for some offense, just 7 yards of offense. In the south stands, the Penn fans begged the Quakers' defense to hold the line. On the field, trailing by 10-7, underdog Bucknell stood 7 yards from the goal line, only 7 yards from the go-ahead touchdown and a potential upset of the defending Ivy League champion.

February 17, 2011 | Claudia Seye Aderotimi was giving herself an early gift for her 21st birthday. Instead, the illegal procedure killed her
THE TRAGIC death of a young British woman after she received an illegal butt-enhancement injection at a hotel near the Philadelphia airport last week has been major news around the country. Claudia Seye Aderotimi was giving herself an early gift for her 21st birthday. Instead, the illegal procedure killed her. According to published reports, Aderotimi was injected with silicone. Just so you know, buttock implants and fat grafting are the only approved butt augmentation procedures in this country.

Quarterback Omar Jacobs threw for 326 yards and four touchdowns, and Corey Partridge returned a punt 79 yards for a score to help Bowling Green rout Temple, 70-7, yesterday at Doyt L. Perry Stadium. Umar Ferguson was the lone bright spot for the 0-5 Owls, rushing for 132 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries. "I really don't have much to say about us, but I do have a lot to say about Omar Jacobs," Temple coach Bobby Wallace said. "He is a great player. That throw he made running to his left [to P.J. Pope]

The Valley Forge Military Academy Trojans took their team bus down Interstate 95 to Washington, D.C., over the weekend looking for more than a good scrap. After losing opening week for the first time since 1986, the imperative was to re-establish the dominance that has marked the program for years. But if Archbishop Carroll, the Capital-area's seventh-ranked team, expected the Trojans to fall back on the savage reputation of their running game, the hosts were mistaken. Valley Forge got off the mark with a touchdown bomb and skirted Carroll's last-ditch comeback attempt to win, 14-7.

Jermaine Ballard rushed for three first-half touchdowns as the Haverford School romped the Oxford Hornets 31-8 Friday night at Oxford in the 1989 football season opener for both teams. It was workman-like effort for the junior tailback who, in addition to his three touchdowns, rushed for 125 yards on 16 carries. Ballard also caught a pass for a 33-yard gain. "He's really coming along nicely and doing the things he's capable of," Haverford coach Paul Bernstorf said. "We think he's really gaining confidence in himself.

Sun Valley junior Matt Kester doesn't mind his nickname, "Hollywood," although its origin is less than complimentary. "The team called my older brother Brian 'Hollywood' last year because they thought he faked injuries," Kester said. "I was 'Little Hollywood' then. " Brian graduated and Matt inherited the nickname. It fits because of Kester's flashy running style. Acting ability, except when Kester fakes right and goes left, has nothing to do with it. "I don't care what they call me," Kester said, "as long as I get the ball.

If you ask Glen Mills' Ken Banks about senior running back Elmarco Jackson, the coach will respond by saying there isn't a thing Jackson can't do on a football field. Friday night, Jackson proved his coach's observations true by rushing for 170 yards and four touchdowns on 16 carries, playing tough defense from his outside-linebacker position, and blocking a punt to lead the Bulls to a 42-0 victory over Edmonson Westside of Baltimore before a packed homecoming crowd at Jack Pearson Stadium.

The bye week comes upon the Eagles with cruel timing. There is no imminent game to distract them from mourning the bizarre turn of events that cost them Monday night's game against their most despised rivals. "It's harder because you've got a bye," coach Ray Rhodes said yesterday as his team began its only practice of the week. "If it wasn't for the bye, by today it would be out of your mind. But you have a bye week. You don't have anybody to play. " What the Eagles have is an opportunity to catch their breath and, without the pressure of game-planning for a specific opponent, assess what they need to improve upon for the season's remaining 13 games.

P ASSING ALONG some city high school football tidbits . . . In an attempt to garner college attention, Episcopal Academy's Quinn Hager has been sending out tapes of his kicking/punting exploits. One problem: He is averaging only one punt per game for the 4-0 Churchmen (176-7 scoring dominance), and lengthy field-goal opportunities have not exactly been plentiful, either. Well, since the 6-3, 180-pound senior, also a wideout (and part-time safety), is averaging 23.5 yards on 11 catches and owns three touchdowns, perhaps he should include some snagging video.

The football game between St. Joseph of Hammonton and St. Augustine Prep had plenty of subplots built up over the week heading into last night's clash under the lights at the Prep. For one, the heavily favored host entered the game ranked No. 4 in the Daily News' Top 10 and likes its new perch atop the Cape-Atlantic National Division. The Hermits also feature quarterback Dustin Thomas, who needed only a pair of touchdown passes to set the South Jersey career mark. Meanwhile, St. Joe has been a perennial power in South Jersey, and could find no better opponent than the Hermits to re-establish itself among the elite.

They've been calling it the "Dream Season" in Hammonton. But at halftime of yesterday's State Parochial 1 championship, not only was St. Joseph's season almost over, but it looked as if the dream was about to end, too. At the half, the Wildcats trailed by two points and were getting whiplash from watching Marist running back Riley Jefferson blaze through their defense. But the St. Joseph defense stiffened up like a bad back and the Wildcats pulled through for a 28-16 win. It was St. Joseph's eighth state title; their last crown was in 1993.
