CASEY AND Jamie Ikeda started playing lacrosse together just outside Philadelphia even before they hit grade school. They picked up the game watching their older brother, Brian, and wanted to be just like him. This weekend in Baltimore, at M&T Bank Stadium, they could have a chance to play against each other for much more than bragging rights. Both went to Conestoga, and now Casey is a junior at the University of Maryland and Jamie is a sophomore at Duke University. And both are playing in the NCAA Final Four.

The referee of Monday night's Inter-Ac Invitational boys' lacrosse final conceded that he had not "seen this one in a while. " Malvern Prep's student section - clad in white - had rushed the field two seconds too early. The fans thought the Friars had won to complete a perfect season. Instead the referee slapped Malvern with an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty. The fans were ushered off the field, two seconds were put on the clock, and Haverford School was awarded a goal. Friars goalie Carson Cocco said he did not realize that the Fords' Connor Black had scored in the confusion.

NEWARK, Del. - The start, like the entire season, was so promising for the Drexel men's lacrosse team, but eventually the experience and talent of Denver won out.

The Pioneers scored the next 10 goals Sunday in a 15-6 victory over Drexel in an NCAA quarterfinal at Delaware Stadium. Drexel's Ben McIntosh finally ended the drought when he scored his 100th career goal with 6:12 left in the third period.

Drexel is embracing its underdog role. The Dragons did it last week against Penn before eliminating the Quakers in their first appearance in the NCAA men's lacrosse tournament. Heading into Sunday's quarterfinal meeting with streaking Denver they are equally welcoming of that role. "This team has been to the final four - they have been ranked ahead of us all year," Drexel coach Brian Voelker said. "I don't think anybody is expecting us to win this game. But I think everybody here on our team believes we can do it. It is going to take a special effort.

The team - steeped in success and tradition - has eight undefeated campaigns and a state title. Throughout the years, no Moorestown Friends girls' lacrosse player has scored more than Noelle Smith's 207 career goals. A record of that magnitude, for a program with that much history, conjures up certain images in opponents' heads, Smith said. It's what makes the record such a great honor, but, in a way, also a bit strange.

But as halftime approached Sunday in Drexel's clash with neighborhood rival Penn in the first round of the NCAA Division I lacrosse tournament, the sluggish Dragons trailed the Quakers, 6-4. Saputo helped provide the shot in the arm the Dragons needed, scoring two of the Dragons' three goals in the final 17 seconds of...
