Twenty-six wins, two victories over teams currently ranked nationally, and an Inter-Ac Challenge title. The only thing the Haverford School boys' lacrosse hadn't experienced this year was a loss. That didn't change Friday, as the Fords added to their impressive resume and finished off their undefeated season with a 13-9 home win over Culver Military Academy (Ind.). Johns Hopkins recruit Drew Supinski led the way with three goals. With the win, Haverford School will finish 27-0 and should remain atop the Nike/Lacrosse Magazine High School Boys' Top 25. Public League Baseball Jeffrey DeLeon hit a home run and Giovanni Ortega doubled and scored twice to help Olney beat Franklin Towne Charter, 8-6, in the Public League semifinals at 11th and Bigler.

The Notre Dame lacrosse team has a lingering memory of its last trip to the Philadelphia area, and it's not a good one. Three weeks ago, the Irish (12-2) were the top-ranked team in the country. That would have been a surprise to anyone who had not seen them play before, as they suffered a 13-8 loss to Duke in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The Blue Devils - who handed the Irish an 11-9 defeat in last season's NCAA title game - raced out to a 10-1 third-quarter lead from which the Irish would never recover.

When Taylor Trimble scored the first goal of the second half, it looked as if Duke could snatch the momentum away from North Carolina. But the Tar Heels, who still held a two-score lead, went on to register two goals in 31 seconds and the Blue Devils didn't score again until 9 minutes, 49 seconds remained in the game. By that time, UNC had scored six straight goals and was riding its defense to a 16-7 victory over Duke in an NCAA Division I women's lacrosse semifinal Friday at PPL Park.

Before each game, Great Valley goalkeeper Mia Tornetta listens to the soundtrack from the movie Daredevil. "He's my favorite superhero," Tornetta said. "He never gives up. He never gets beaten down. " Tornetta and company showed shades of the comic-book hero Thursday night in a 7-4 win over No. 3 Harriton in the PIAA District 1 girls' lacrosse championship at West Chester East. "We played as a team and talked to each other like sisters would," Tornetta said. "I couldn't have done it without any of these girls.

Caroline Doran has a hard time putting a dent in any box score. Doran, a Franklin and Marshall junior defender who often face-guards the opposition's top offensive threats, employs aggression and strategy instead of stickhandling and shooting touch. But her defensive prowess is as valuable as any of her teammates' ability to score on the other end of the field. "It can sometimes be very frustrating," said Doran, an Ardmore native who went to Haverford High. "But then you realize that your job is really important for the team and you start to love doing it. " For the Diplomats, who will play Trinity in the NCAA Division III semifinals Saturday at PPL Park, defense is far from an afterthought.

Considering the defensive nature of anyone associated with the Maryland lacrosse team these days, it came as no surprise when Big Ten defensive player of the year Casey Ikeda deflected the compliment when he won the award. "It really could have gone to any number of my teammates," Ikeda, a fifth-year senior defenseman from Conestoga High, said Thursday. "It's a huge honor. But we are a great defensive unit because of the way we play together. " The seventh-seeded Terrapins (14-3)

About this time last year, Kyle Long was an eighth-grader just finishing up his last playoff game for his Springfield youth lacrosse club. Thursday night, however, the Springfield (Delco) freshman dished three assists to help the Cougars capture their first District 1 lacrosse championship by beating league rival Conestoga, 7-5, at West Chester Henderson. "I'm not surprised," coach Tom Lemieux said. "There are no freshmen anymore. It's May 21, and he's not a freshman anymore.

Two years ago Franklin Towne Charter had no girls' lacrosse team. On Wednesday, it had a championship girls' lacrosse team.
