Ringo Starr finished his concert last night at Bally's Grandstand by singing the song that summed up the evening: "With a Little Help From My Friends. " Under the circumstances, he should have changed it to "With a Whole Lot of Very Important Help From My Friends. " Although he was the headliner, Starr was not the only star attraction. He turned out to be something of a lightweight, given the musical prowess of his accomplices. There was Joe Walsh doing a rollicking "Rocky Mountain Way" by pounding out a survey course in guitar styles.

West Chester Henderson's new football coach, Joe Walsh, says that his basic philosophy will be to "throw over and run around" the opposition when the season opens in September. "We don't have much size, but we have a lot of speed, so we'll try to take advantage of that," Walsh said after the announcement on Friday that he will succeed Mike Hancock. Hancock, 53, retired March 31 after 23 years as the Warriors' head coach. He will continue at the school as a teacher. "We had several applicants from within the district, so we did not advertise it outside," said Henderson athletic director Ron Tukloff.

Joe Walsh, 38, of West Chester was named Monday the winner of the spot over eight other interviewed applicants, said Sun Valley athletic director Joe Corabi.

The second half of the Del-Val American Conference season won't begin for the Sun Valley Vanguards until 7:30 p.m. this Friday, when they host Unionville. But there's one thing for sure: Until then, the Vanguards can bask in the glow of a 28-7 nonleague thrashing of the Lampeter-Strasburg Pioneers on Friday night. "This feels great," Vanguards halfback Kevin Anderson said. "The key was the fact that we were healthy. Larry Barlow filled in for Ed Downs (a running back who was out with a pinched nerve)

A former dispatcher with the Seafarers' International Union was sentenced yesterday to three years in prison for his role in a cocaine smuggling conspiracy along the Philadelphia waterfront. Joseph Walsh, 60, of Upper Darby, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Edmund V. Ludwig as a result of his guilty plea in May to charges of conspiracy to import and distribute cocaine. Robert E. Courtney, a prosecutor with the U.S. Organized Crime Strike Force, said that Walsh, two Colombians and a New Jersey seaman were indicted in March as a result of an 18-month investigation by the U.S. Customs Service into drug dealing, smuggling and theft along the waterfront.

Joe Walsh was named head football coach at West Chester Henderson yesterday, filling a spot that had been vacant since Mike Hancock announced his retirement on March 31. Hancock stepped down after 30 years of coaching - 23 of them as the head man at Henderson, where he compiled a 140-117-1 record. The 42-year-old Walsh is stepping into a very familiar situation. He was an assistant to Hancock for 16 seasons before leaving four years ago to take the head-coaching position at Sun Valley, although he continued to teach health and physical education at Henderson.

Sun Valley football coach Joe Walsh stepped down last week after four seasons with the Vanguards. In doing so, he talked about the difficulties in coaching in one school district while teaching in another. "My ability to maintain and build a program was hampered by not being in the building," said Walsh, who teaches at West Chester Henderson. "Not having contact with the kids during the off-season, not being able to take care of problems during the season. By not being there, you can't be an influence on the kids who may be marginal about coming out. The numbers are down there since they cut out the ninth-grade program.

As has been rumored, Chris Riley will step down as Northeast High's football coach after three seasons. "I'll probably announce it in the next week or so," he said Tuesday. Riley said he would stay on as the school's athletic director, overseeing 29 programs. He is also a special-education teacher. Riley compiled a 23-12 record with the Vikings.

For the last two seasons, the West Chester Henderson football team hasn't been very big, fast or deep. While that sounds like a losing formula, the Warriors have made up for their shortcomings with determination and an uncanny ability to find ways to win. In those two years, coach Joe Walsh has compiled an impressive 15-7 record, including a 7-4 mark last season. This year, Walsh finally has what he lacked in the past: size and speed. Coupled with the Warriors' winning attitude, they have a chance to challenge powerhouses Coatesville and Downingtown for the Ches-Mont title.

Two straight weeks of practicing what Downingtown East coach Mike Matta calls "assignment football" paid off. One week after getting torched by the West Chester Henderson option offense, allowing 35 second-half points in a 42-20 beating, the Cougars topped Henderson, 28-17, on the road Friday night in the first round of the District 1 Class AAAA playoffs. "It was an unbelievable win, especially after ending the regular season on such a sour note," said Matta, whose team was a ninth seed, one slot below Henderson.

Play it again, Sam. Only a week after the teams met in the regular-season finale, Ches-Mont League National Conference rivals Downingtown East and West Chester Henderson will square off again Friday night in the opening round of the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA playoffs. "That's just the way it worked out," Henderson coach Joe Walsh said. "It's tough, but it is what it is. That's the way the district playoff system is set up. You have to do what you have to do. " East, seeded No. 9 in the 16-team tournament, and No. 8 Henderson will meet again at J. Oscar Dicks Stadium, where on Friday the Warriors overcame a 20-7 deficit to beat the Cougars, 42-20, to clinch the National Conference championship.

During the time-out to decide whether to try for an all-or-nothing two-point conversion versus Conestoga, quarterback John O'Donnell and running back Jabair Khan were two of the West Chester Henderson players pushing coach Joe Walsh to go for it. Walsh decided to roll the dice. It paid off. Russell Jacobs took a right-side toss from O'Donnell and followed Khan and 6-foot-4, 315-pound lineman Brandon Heath into the end zone. The play gave Henderson a 21-20 victory over visiting Conestoga in a thrilling, PIAA District 1 Class AAAA first-round playoff game last night.

The Eagles have become something of a three-fer in concert. You get the legendary pop group's deep catalog, and as bonuses they throw in solo gems from Don Henley and Joe Walsh. Now, would you pay $177.50 for a decent seat? A lot of people did on Tuesday night for the first of the group's two shows at the First Union Center. What they got was a musical diorama, all the hits exquisitely stuffed and mounted. The near-capacity crowd apparently appreciated the Eagles' exactitude, and cheered lustily when supplementary guitarist Steuart Smith re-created the solo on the 1979 tune "I Can't Tell You Why" note for note.

West Chester Henderson coach Joe Walsh said he felt his team had turned a corner Saturday afternoon after the Warriors had suffered a hard-fought 35-21 defeat at the hands of Salesianum. "If we had played like this the first game [against Chester] or against Malvern Prep, those results might have been different," Walsh said after his club fell to 0-5 on the season. "But the kids came out [Saturday] and played hard and tough," he added. "We made some mistakes in the second half that cost us, and they capitalized, and that was about it. " Henderson actually led, 21-14, in the third quarter.
