Garnet Valley coach Jerry Doemling realizes his Jaguars had better get their act together. After a hard-fought 50-47 loss to Bishop Shanahan in a Southern Chester County League game Tuesday night, the Jaguars fell to 1-2 in the conference and 4-8 overall. Doemling said the loss was the result of his players making the same mistakes that have been costing them all season. "We seem to be somewhat consistent about the mistakes we have been making," Doemling said. The Jaguars stayed closely behind the Eagles (6-6, 3-1)

Ceil Forte twisted and turned in her seat on Garnet Valley's bench, imploring shots to fall. The Jaguars' coach did not get too much time to enjoy her team's first playoff victory ever last week. She spent Thursday night hoping long bombs would make it through the nets, and her team would somehow get by Lower Moreland, the top-seeded team in District 1 Class AA. At times, the Jaguars looked brilliant, staying with the quicker, bigger Lower Moreland team. Most times, however, Garnet Valley struggled with turnovers and missed shots, eventually falling, 56-40, to Lower Moreland (23-2 overall)

The Christian Academy's Craig Killinen gave Garnet Valley a rude reminder that sometimes games do last the entire 32 minutes. The Keystone Conference champion Crusaders trailed the Jaguars until the closing minutes of Tuesday night's nonleague contest. But they came back to beat the Jaguars 51-48 when Killinen hit a 25-foot shot at the final buzzer. The Christian Academy got its chance to win the game when, with 12 seconds remaining, Mark Forbes grabbed the rebound of a missed Jaguar foul shot.

Garnet Valley coach Jerry Doemling has said on more than one occasion that his go-to player when a game is on the line is senior point guard Bob Cox. And on more than one occasion, Cox has come through, hitting late baskets to win games. Tuesday was not one of those occasions. Cox was stripped of the ball while trying to drive for the winning basket in regulation time and the Jaguars went on to lose, 52-50, to Kennett in overtime. "There was no way he was going to pass the ball after winning our game Friday (52-51 over Octorara)

Garnet Valley stopped a two-point conversion attempt with 2 minutes and 25 seconds left to play, then hung on for a 14-12 win over visiting Pennsbury last night in the quarterfinals of the District 1 Class AAAA football playoffs. The win puts the unbeaten and No. 2-seeded Jaguars into a semifinal matchup with Neshaminy, a 31-3 winner over Ridley last night. In winning their 12th straight game of the season, the Jaguars survived a pair of second-half turnovers that allowed Pennsbury (9-3)

Garnet Valley coach Bill Geating said he wasn't sure what to expect from his 1989 Jaguars after losing most of his key runners from last year's 15-0 Southern Chester County League championship squad. But so far, Geating has liked what he's seen as the Jaguars have beaten six of their first eight opponents - including Sun Valley and The Christian Academy in a tri-meet Friday at Sun Valley. "I'm really thrilled that we are 6-2 right now," Geating said. "I think our guys are giving great efforts, and we're really excited right now. " On Friday, a great effort by senior Scott Palmer gave the Jaguars the double victory.

Timely hitting can cure quite a few ills for a baseball team - ills such as two wild pitches, a passed ball and a balk. Garnet Valley committed all those mistakes but still managed to rally past Kennett, 8-6, Thursday in the Southern Chester County League. Garnet Valley starter Josh Steward pitched only one hitless inning in the five innings he worked, and he gave up 10 hits overall. So the Jaguars didn't have an outstanding pitching performance going for them, either. But the Jaguars hit the ball well when it counted.

Garnet Valley pitcher Kristin Denenno had battled the flu all week, so she didn't complain when coach Bud Pruitt replaced her with the Jaguars trailing in the third inning of Thursday's softball game against Kennett. But she was also determined to give her team a lift in another way if she could - with her bat. And she did. Remaining in the game to play the outfield after Leah Wilkerson took over the pitching, Denenno belted a leadoff homer - her third of the year - in the sixth inning.

Mike Ricci knew his inexperienced Garnet Valley football team would suffer initial growing pains. What he expected is exactly what he saw Friday night when Garnet Valley visited Perkiomen Valley. The Jaguars stumbled in the first half en route to a 27-7 loss in the opening game for both teams. Ricci stressed to his team afterward that things were not as bad as they had appeared, and that the score was no indication of how good the team could be. In some respects, he was right.

Inconsistency. That word was on the mind of Garnet Valley basketball coach Jerry Doemling after his Jaguars were eliminated 70-66 by Morrisville in the first round of the PIAA District 1 Class AA boys' basketball tournament Monday night at Interboro High School. "That (game) was our season right there," said Doemling. "We score when we want to at times, then we can't make a basket for the life of us. Our defense gets hot, and then a couple minutes later we give up a follow-up basket, and it's all over.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Repetition usually feels, well, repetitive. But it didn't Saturday for the Garnet Valley girls' lacrosse team. Behind eight second-half goals, the Jaguars rallied to win a second straight state title, topping Conestoga, 14-10, in the PIAA final at Hersheypark Stadium. The emotion afterward, they said, was nothing like last year. "It feels completely different than the first one," head coach Jenny Purvis said. "It was a completely different year to get us here, and a completely different [lineup]

Chris Polian recently interviewed with the Eagles a second time for their personnel executive opening, an NFL source said. The Jaguars' director of pro personnel was one of the first candidates to meet with Eagles coach Chip Kelly and is the only known aspirant to have a second interview. The Eagles were prepared to meet with Brian Gaine for a second interview, but the Texans promoted him to director of player personnel and he opted to stay in Houston. Polian is the son of longtime NFL executive Bill Polian and served as the Colts' general manager under his father from 2009-11.

At their Garnet Valley home, Jordan Ireland is the typical big sister to Maddie. She's the responsible one, the one in charge, the more controlling of the two. Separated by just 17 months and one grade, Maddie, 16, jokingly calls Jordan, 18, "mom. " When the two guards for the Garnet Valley girls' basketball team are on the court, however, things are a little bit different. On the floor for the Jaguars (3-0), Maddie is the one Jordan listens to, the one who grabs the bull by the horns, the sister who has ideas on what the team should do next.

The Eagles retreated to the locker room during halftime of Sunday's 34-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars to a soundtrack of dissatisfied fans. A season that opened with postseason aspirations started with a scoreless 30 minutes. "I think everybody was frustrated," said coach Chip Kelly, whose team trailed, 17-0, at halftime. "I heard a few fans who were frustrated, too. Go figure. But they had every right. I was booing myself. " Yet, the locker room was devoid of panic. The Eagles expected the 34-0 second-half onslaught that ensued.

When the Eagles run The Eagles had the NFL's best rushing offense last season, and the only major change was replacing Bryce Brown with Darren Sproles. Allen Barbre, a solid run blocker, is filling in for Lane Johnson at right tackle for the first month of the season. But the central figures are back, with LeSean McCoy running the ball and an offensive line that includes Pro Bowlers Jason Peters and Evan Mathis on the left side. The Jaguars ranked No. 29 in rushing defense last season.

The Jacksonville offense does not boast LeSean McCoy or Nick Foles or Pro Bowlers on the offensive line, and those watching Sunday's Eagles-Jaguars game likely will not confuse it with Chip Kelly's group. But when the Eagles defense is on the field, Jacksonville's pace might look familiar. Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch studied Kelly and Auburn coach Gus Malzahn after the 2011 season when he was the offensive coordinator at the University of Miami and installed an up-tempo system.

Senior forward Haley Warden was talking about a metaphoric switch when referring to the intensity with which her Garnet Valley girls' basketball team played during the first half Friday afternoon. But it might as well have been a real one, considering just how the Jaguars turned up their play late in the second quarter and into the final 16 minutes of the contest. Warden had 10 points and 11 rebounds as the host Jaguars rolled over West Chester Henderson, 53-32, in the Garnet Valley Tournament.

Garnet Valley has made considerable noise since moving from the Southern Chester County League to the Central League in 2008. Mike Ricci's football squad has posted a 51-8 mark (.864 winning percentage) in league play, with two outright championships (2008 and 2011) and one shared (2009, with Ridley). This season is no different, as the Jaguars are 9-0, 8-0 in the Central League, and set to enter the 16-team PIAA District 1 Class AAAA playoff tournament as one of the top seeds.

The Jaguar F-Type V8 S was at the curb, basking topless in the sun, waiting for fun to break out. And, boy, the outbreak would prove an epidemic in this most delightful, 495-horsepower way to migrate from Point A to Point B. The 2014 F-Type is Jaguar's first true sports car since it stopped building the E-Type about four decades ago. (Its luxury-focused two-seat stablemate, the XK, is really a grand touring, or GT.) And like the E-Type, the new F model is rear-drive, very fast and outrageously lovely.
