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.

After last week's disappointing loss in the Catholic League semifinals, perhaps what Archbishop Carroll needed was to be thrown back into the fire as soon as possible. The District 12 3A seeding game Wednesday against Imhotep at a steamy Archbishop Ryan was exactly that. In an at-times ugly and disjointed fashion, the Patriots held off the heat and the Panthers, 70-61. "Yeah, it felt like a sauna on the floor," said a smiling Josh Sharkey. "We just had to deal with it. We can't control the temperature whether it's cold or hot, so we just had to be ready in any circumstances.

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.

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)

Albie Crosby, who guided Imhotep Charter to a 15-0 record and the PIAA Class AAA state football championship last season, has stepped down as the successful program's head coach. "I'm going through some personal things," Crosby said Monday afternoon. "I had been burning the candle at both ends. And, health-wise, I want to focus on getting in better shape. " Last season, in becoming the first Public League school to claim a state football crown, the Panthers outscored foes by 702-104.

Del-Val High School senior Semaj Motley led the Warriors to two improbable championships last season, but he still has one last basketball battle to win. "I would feel like I could be successful with my professional career if I got a scholarship to play in college," said the 5-foot-10, 180-pound point guard. "It would mean a lot and feel good. " The going has been slow for Motley, who earned first-team all-Public honors from league coaches. He also led the Warriors to Public League and District 12 titles.

WHEN THE PIAA playoff brackets were released weeks ago, Imhotep certainly had Del-Val - and revenge - on the brain. Del-Val, which had won 19 consecutive games entering Friday night's Class 3A quarterfinal at Southern, unseated the defending champion Panthers in February en route to claiming the school's first Public League basketball title. Friday night, however, the Panthers sought to send a message. "We saw that they were on our side , so we're like,'Del-Val, Del-Val, Del-Val,' every day in practice," said Imhotep junior captain Daron Russell.

For the first 16 minutes of the Class 3A second-round PIAA matchup, Lampeter-Strasburg junior Ben Sandberg was the best forward on the court. In fact, Sandberg's rebounding helped whittle what was once a 14-5 first-quarter advantage for Del-Val down to just four points by halftime at Coatesville High. In the third quarter, however, Del-Val senior Dwayne Coleman gave the Warriors a needed boost, which resulted in a 59-45 victory Tuesday, the team's 19th in a row. The win also sets up a quarterfinal matchup Friday with Imhotep, which destroyed District 4's Lewisburg, 72-47.

Albie Crosby has coached an abundance of talented high school football players as an assistant at West Catholic and as the current coach of Public League powerhouse Imhotep Charter. West Catholic's Curtis Brinkley, who went to Syracuse and later played four seasons in the NFL, immediately comes to mind. Imhotep stars Deandre Scott (now at Maine) and Denniston "D.J. " Moore (now at Maryland) aren't far behind. And current senior Naseir "Pop" Upshur, who will play at Florida State, can't be forgotten, either.
