Chester used a furious second-half run to down Imhotep, 56-36, in the Jameer/Pete Nelson Philly.com/Rally Classic on Wednesday night at Widener University. In a game that included six lead changes and three ties, the Clippers outscored the Panthers, 35-16, in the latter two periods after holding a one-point halftime lead. Chester forward Erikk Wright scored nine of his game-high 11 points in the third quarter, when he returned from first-half foul trouble. Wright and 6-foot-7 Chester swingman Rondae Jefferson sat midway through the first quarter with two fouls each and did not return before halftime.

There's little chance of Archbishop Wood, despite its size and speed advantage, taking Berwick lightly. The District 2 champions are 14-0, have outscored foes by 571-148, have a rich history that includes six state titles, and are guided by Pennsylvania's all-time winningest coach. Wood, in trying to move closer to its second PIAA Class AAA state championship in three seasons, will take on longtime coach George Curry and the Dawgs in a semifinal at 7 p.m. Friday at J. Birney Crum Stadium in Allentown.

Now, this was much closer than expected. Many though Imhotep Charter's Martin Luther King Day game with Girard College would be a breeze. That's because the Panthers are The Inquirer's seventh-ranked team in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The Cavaliers, on the other hand, are an unproven Class A squad. At least that was the thought before yesterday's nonleague game. Imhotep defeated Girard College, 56-48, at the Panthers' gym. The victory improved the Panthers to 15-1.

SHILLINGTON, Pa. - As the second half kicked off in Saturday's PIAA state Class AA football semifinal at Governor Mifflin, the raucous Berks Catholic cheering section broke into the first few bars of "Seven Nation Army," which includes the line "I'm going to Wichita. " The Saints can have Kansas. Imhotep is going to Hershey - to play for the state championship. Imhotep blanked Berks Catholic, 20-0, behind stellar red-zone defense and three long rushing scores. The Panthers will become the first Philadelphia public school team to play for a state title when they meet Pittsburgh-area South Fayette at noon Saturday at Hersheypark Stadium.

AT FIRST glance, you're asking, since when did hoops season start in September? Well, no, this is not basketball season, and, yes, Imhotep is now taking over football, too, and it's not even a contest. The Panthers sport one of the more versatile collections of talent you'll ever see, with strong lines and a plethora of skill-position guys. Coach Albie Crosby reports that, "Nobody starts on both sides of the ball. " He also expects, that, "18 players on this roster will have a D-I offer in time.

The School District of Philadelphia and Imhotep Institute Charter High School said Wednesday that they had reached a settlement over allegations that the former charter administrators fraudulently billed the district for two special-education students. Imhotep, which has replaced its board and brought in new management, denied any wrongdoing. The charter has agreed to repay the district nearly $16,100 for inaccurate invoices. Investigators in the district's charter office and the city Inspector General's Office found evidence that the charter in East Germantown had billed the district for the entire 2013-14 academic year for a student who attended for only one semester.

Imhotep senior running back Mike Waters might have quit football all together early in his career if not for a few simple words from his coach. Waters was a sophomore then, splitting carries with other talented runners and feeling like he had no room to shine. "In the beginning I was ready to just give up," said Waters, a 5-foot-10, 192-pounder. "I didn't want to play football anymore. I wasn't getting the ball and wasn't able to show my talents. My coach [Albie Crosby] just kept saying he had my back, so I just had to ride it out with him. " Now, Waters, a Public League record-holder, will lead the Panthers (13-0, 6-0)

BEFORE YESTERDAY, if there was a metaphorical Imhotep Charter basketball party, Daron Russell wouldn't have been invited. The sophomore guard didn't have the proper credentials. Although he would know everybody inside, Russell would have to stand outside the velvet ropes. Perhaps he could press his nose to the window and watch people dancing to celebratory music, but that's about it. Only those with a Public League title would be welcome. However, Russell's MVP performance in the Panthers' thrilling, 77-75 championship victory against Constitution earned him a ticket.

SABRINA ALLEN likes to say that she "bleeds basketball. " "Cut me open," she tells her Imhotep girls' basketball players, "that's all you are going to see is basketball. " The coach of the Panthers, in her sixth year, has turned the program into one of the most intense and consistent in the city. In other words, her players bleed basketball, too. And yesterday afternoon, Imhotep took home its second straight Public League championship by defeating Mastery Charter North, 61-33, at Saint Joseph's Hagan Arena.

Two days before neighborhood rivals Imhotep Charter and Martin Luther King High met on the basketball court, Tyheem Harmon was informed that he would be sitting for the start of the game. King coach Sean Colson told Harmon, typically a starter, that the team needed him to be a spark off the bench. "I could get through it," said Harmon, a 5-foot-11 guard. "Whatever is best for the team. " With a packed and boisterous home crowd in attendance, Harmon sat on the bench and plotted instead of pouted.

Tyliek Raynor, a standout running back from PIAA Class 3A state champion Imhotep Charter, has made an oral commitment to Temple. Originally committed to Arizona, Raynor said Tuesday on Twitter that he has switched to Temple. Imhotep coach Al Crosby told The Inquirer that Arizona and Illinois were Raynor's other finalists. "The way things worked out, he wanted to be closer to home, he loves Temple, and he has a great relationship with coach [Matt] Rhule," Crosby said. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Raynor suffered an ankle injury and appeared in just seven games as a senior, missing the end of the season.

Preparing to capture Imhotep junior guard Daron Russell's 1,000th career point, a photographer wondered aloud Tuesday night, minutes before the Panthers hosted rival Martin Luther King. Russell, a 5-foot-11 point guard who can score in bunches, needed 13 points to reach the milestone. "He'll probably get it in the second half, right?" the photographer asked. The answer came with 1 minute, 23 seconds left in the first quarter after Russell hit a step-back three-pointer opposite the King bench, landing him squarely on 13 and 1,000 points.

With a 12-2 start to the season, Imhotep Charter is primed to make a strong run at its fourth PIAA state basketball crown in the last six seasons, and fifth overall. To that end, the deep and speedy Panthers are banking on continued solid play, sometimes off the bench, from a pair of rising junior forwards: 6-foot-7, 185-pound Koby Thomas and 6-4, 210-pound Jaquan Arrington. The high-leaping Thomas, who came over from fellow Public League member Mastery North, is averaging 8.5 points and 5.9 rebounds.

Bionca Dunham doesn't remember how her father, Jason, got her to the Hunting Park Recreation Center one day. All she knows is that he tricked her. Back then, Dunham was a "girlie girl," an eighth-grader who was into modeling and didn't even want to watch basketball, let alone play it. But Jason was a former standout at Ben Franklin, where he won a Public League title, and on that day he got her out of the house on false pretenses. Following in the footsteps of her father - and cousin Rysheed Jordan - seemed a long way away back then.

More than anything, Imhotep Charter boys' basketball coach Andre Noble has been pleased with Jaekwon Carlyle's maturation as a student. "He comes from a rough neighborhood, and he had some issues in the classroom," Noble said. "But he's been buckling down and applying himself more. " Carlyle agreed. "I had to focus more, stop worrying about things less important, and do my work. " The 6-foot, 170-pound senior guard helped Imhotep take care of business against Friends' Central on Saturday in the second annual All-City Classic, producing 15 points, two assists, and two steals in a 68-42 triumph at Girard College.

There have been some dominant and talent-filled area football teams in this millennium. Neshaminy (2001) and North Penn (2003) both went 15-0 and won PIAA Class 4A state titles; Archbishop Wood's 2011 and 2013 squads impressed greatly while taking home 3A crowns; and the St. Joseph's Prep's team that earned 4A glory in 2014, even with three early losses against national powers, is also in the mix.
