Interboro senior defensive end/tight end Brian Matherly was disappointed last week when the Bucs allowed Sun Valley to score 25 points in a 30-25 season-opening victory. He wasn't about to be disappointed again Friday night. Matherly sacked visiting Lake Forest (Del.) quarterback Golden Myers twice and caused a fumble in the second quarter, giving Interboro the momentum and ultimately the game, 47-6, over the defending Delaware state champions in a nonleague game. The game started like a track meet.

Lake Forest, Ill., is the kind of place where massive Tudor homes are tucked among trees that dwarf them. "Our tree population is 75,000," says Char Kreuz, the town's director of public information. "Give or take a few. " As you may be aware, a few have been taken lately - by force. Over the last month, a new resident of the affluent Chicago suburb, Mr. T, has chopped down almost every tree from his once heavily-wooded 7.5-acre estate. Where century-old maples, oaks, and elms once stood, only stumps remain.

They wanted a sweet kind of non-aggressive Southern belle.

Three years ago, Ian and Nancy Work bought a rambling ranch just outside of town - a peaceful getaway from their home in the tony, expensive suburb of Lake Forest, Ill. At the end of each weekend here, the family found it more and more difficult to leave. Back in Lake Forest, they pined for Sante Fe - its narrow winding roads, its fields of wildflowers, its postcard-perfect mountains, and its quaint adobe and pueblo-style homes. In 1990, the Works finally packed away big-city life and headed to the place that calls itself "City Different.

Before Interboro football coach Steve Lennox discusses quarterback/linebacker Vince McHale's shotgun arm, ability to lead an offense or toughness on defense, he wants to talk about something he considers just as important - McHale's attitude. He wants to talk about the way McHale handled backing up all-Del-Val quarterback Gary Matthias last season. "He could have been moaning and groaning," Lennox said. "But he never complained. " "It was no big deal," McHale said. "Last year was Gary's year.

When Kevin Scott left Radnor's junior varsity football team during the fall of his junior year to concentrate on swimming, hardly anyone noticed.

Scott, who had played wide receiver and outside linebacker on the football team, won the 50- and 100-yard freestyles and participated on Radnor's victorious 200 medley and 200 freestyle relay teams.

Interboro was a team looking for an identity entering this season. The Bucs had lost a number of star players and needed to find some new ones. They may have come away with a little more than they had hoped for in a 40-8 rout of Delaware's Lake Forest on Friday night. The victory improved Interboro to 2-0, thanks to a four-touchdown, 148-yard rushing performance by senior running back Tim Deasey and a stubborn defense that permitted Lake Forest, the Delaware Division II state champion in 1995, only 161 yards of offense.
