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.

The Jaguar renaissance continues with two new models that the British automaker expects to account for half its sales: the XE, a compact sports sedan, and the F-Pace, a performance-minded compact crossover SUV. Now in the showrooms, these two models will put Jaguar in play in two crucial segments where it hadn't been represented. "The compact sport sedan is the largest segment of the premium auto market," noted Nathan Hoyt, Jaguar Land Rover's product communications director. "And the compact SUV segment is the fastest growing.

ONCE AGAIN, NFL free agency did not live up to what Stefen Wisniewski had in mind. Once again, he settled for a one-year deal with a team that needed a starting offensive lineman, hoping this might be the chance that could lead to long-term security, somewhere. Wisniewski, 27, is the leading contender to start at left guard for the Eagles after signing a contract that a source close to the situation said is worth slightly more than the $2.5 million he made on a similar deal last year in Jacksonville.

He's just 5-foot-8 and about 150 pounds, so perhaps the element of surprise is Billy Coyle's best friend on the lacrosse field. When all else fails, however, a lefthanded laser also does the trick. The Malvern Prep junior employed both Saturday as the Friars led early, came from behind late, and eventually survived visiting Garnet Valley, 11-10, on Coyle's game-winning goal with 2.9 seconds left. What earned Coyle room to fire was a bit of trickery. After calling a timeout with 16.4 seconds remaining, Malvern coach John McEvoy sent his Friars (5-1)

"Han, just like practice. " That was Maura Hendrixson's advice to teammate Hannah Nihill as she walked to the line at Spring-Ford. The Cardinal O'Hara girls' basketball team was tied with Garnet Valley with 0.4 seconds left, and it would be up to the junior to decide the outcome. "Normally I'm so nervous," Nihill, a Drexel recruit, said. "I'm not the best foul shooter, I'll be honest. " But the words from the sophomore helped her "envision" the ball going into the basket, leading the point guard to conclude, "I got this.

The redesigned 2016 Jaguar XF is a gorgeous sedan with driving dynamics to match its aesthetics. It's a car that feels right, whether you're cruising down I-95 at a legal pace or taking a corner at the speed of fun. Mike Bradley, the XF's launch manager, says the car offers "a sports-car driving experience with sedan practicality. " That's a fair statement, particularly in the case of the S model I tested, which is the sportiest XF of them all. This new rendition of Jaguar's midsize luxury sedan, which battles with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E Class and BMW 5 Series, is a deliberately evolutionary styling exercise.

Before the kickoff of the 2015 campaign, I posited 10 burning questions that would be answered over the early part of season. Having grown weary of chronicling the injuries to my various starting lineups (farewell, Arian!), I thought this would be a good time to revisit those queries. 1. How soon will LeSean McCoy, Arian Foster, Todd Gurley, Randall Cobb, Alshon Jeffery, Julian Edelman and other nicked-up stars be ready to go full throttle? The answers varied for each of these players, but until Foster went down Sunday, each was at or near 100 percent and pointed in the right direction.

PANTHERS (-3) over Eagles Nailed the Birds last week, but not gonna go back-to-back with them. The good news is, they get to play in front of the biggest TV audience on a Sunday night. But the bad news is, they have to play at Carolina. The Panthers are the picture of perfection so far this season with a 5-0 record (4-1 against the spread). Since head coach Ron Rivera turned the switch toward the end of last season at New Orleans, these Southern cats have not lost a game.

The Eagles found their third quarterback Sunday by claiming Stephen Morris off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Morris will fill the 53d spot on the roster and take the role that coach Chip Kelly did not think Tim Tebow was good enough to occupy. Morris, 23, was an undrafted rookie from Miami in 2014. He spent last season on the Jaguars' practice squad. Morris continued with the Jaguars during the summer. He went 23 of 42 for 242 yards and one touchdown in three preseason games.

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.

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.
