Mount St. Joseph's first appearance in a PIAA Class AAA field hockey championship game was spoiled yesterday when Lower Dauphin, a winner of two previous championships, posted a 2-1 win at J. Birney Crum Stadium. The unbeaten Falcons (29-0), who previously won state titles in 1993 and 1998, got goals from Sami Young and Julie Barton within a two-minute stretch midway through the first half. Then they stymied the on-rushing Magic in the closing minutes to preserve the victory. The Mount (25-2)

After West Chester East fell Wednesday to eventual-champion Unionville in the semifinals of the PIAA District 1 field hockey tournament, Vikings coach Diane Horsey decided it was time to regroup. "We didn't play very well at all," Horsey said of the 2-0 loss. "I just told them they weren't using their brains. We just didn't follow through on what we had practiced. " So Thursday, the day before their meeting with Haverford High for the district's third spot behind Unionville and Downingtown in the state playoffs, the Vikings worked hard on some fundamentals, especially passing.

Keep an eye on Lower Dauphin when the PIAA Class AAA state soccer playoffs roll around. This District 3 power did what no District 1 team could do this fall: rein in Downingtown's speed long enough to register a 2-1 overtime win in the first round of the Hershey Mid-State Cup Tournament on Saturday. Downingtown came back to knock off Wilson West Lawn, 2-1, in the consolation game. Lower Dauphin was bombed by Strath Haven, 4-0, in the first round of the state tournament last year, but it obviously has talent back and is undefeated (8-0)

Plymouth-Whitemarsh, a team that made few mistakes through its first 13 games, turned the ball over six times and fell to Lower Dauphin, 33-6, in a PIAA Class AAAA football semifinal last night. The Colonials (13-1) lost three fumbles, and quarterback Tom Bruno threw three interceptions. P-W never recovered after losing the lead to the Falcons (14-0) in the second period. "I take all the blame," said Bruno, who had an outstanding senior season, his first as a quarterback. "We just didn't get the job done.

There are not many walls that Strath Haven's Dan Connor can't break through. Last night, the bruising Panthers fullback hit one in the second quarter during a a goal-line stand by Lower Dauphin in a PIAA Class AAA state football semifinal game. On two attempts from inside the 2-yard line, Connor could not find the end zone at HersheyPark Stadium. His growl probably could be heard back in Wallingford, where Strath Haven is located. But Connor and Strath Haven (14-0)

Taking a cue from Bonnie Tyler's hit song from the 1980s, West Chester East coach Ed Pappas yelled to his team before the start of the sixth inning: "I need a hero!" What player answered the call? To no one's surprise, Billy Muldowney came to the rescue in yesterday's PIAA Class AAA state baseball playoff semifinal against Lower Dauphin. Muldowney provided a game-tying RBI triple in the sixth inning and hit a two-run homer during a five-run seventh as the Vikings beat the Falcons, 7-2, at War Memorial Field.

Lower Dauphin capped a perfect season with a 3-0 victory over Council Rock yesterday to claim the school's first PIAA state field hockey championship. With the triumph at Ursinus College, the Falcons clinched the Class AAA championship. Senior forward Jen Jones gave the Falcons (26-0) a 1-0 advantage with just 2 minutes, 6 seconds played in the game when she scored her 34th goal of the year, on an assist from senior Malinda Schildt. "Getting that goal right away really helps a team," said Falcons coach Linda Kreiser, a 16-year veteran.

Upper Moreland, the District 1 Class AAA field hockey champion, was upset by a hard-driving, highly skilled Lower Dauphin team in a first-round state tournament game yesterday at Methacton. The Golden Bears never led and saw their season end with the 4-2 loss. It was the second year in a row that the District 1 champion was ousted in the first round by the fifth-place team from District 3. Last year, Council Rock fell to Warwick by 1-0. "They got that first goal, and I think they got the momentum," said senior forward Jen Holiday, who scored both Bears goals.

Plymouth-Whitemarsh had been the team that had come up with the big turnovers all season. But on Friday night, the Colonials, The Inquirer's top-ranked area team, made the big turnovers and went down to Lower Dauphin, 33-6, in a PIAA Class AAAA semifinal game. "You can't turn the ball over six times to a good team," coach Joe Iacovitti said, "and we gave them the ball too many times in our own end. They made the plays. " The teams looked like a matched pair going into the game, and Lower Dauphin (14-0)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Erelle Sowers stood a few feet behind the rubber in the pitching circle. The seventh inning was about to start, and the Souderton righthander was all by herself on the infield, as none of her Souderton softball teammates had walked onto the diamond yet. Sowers calmly picked up some dirt and received a thumbs-up and reassuring nod from coach Steph Rummel. Always composed - even when three outs away from a state championship - Sowers went on to retire the side in order.

What's the difference between this Springfield (Delco) softball team and the one that was runner-up in the 2007 Class AAA state tournament? Not much, coach Todd Odgers says, but there is one small change. That 2007 team was good, even really good. This 2014 team is great, he says. Odgers is right. There is no shortage of talent on this year's Cougars, one of two Southeastern Pennsylvania teams (Souderton being the other) that will compete for PIAA championships Friday at Penn State.

An afterthought for most of the year, North Penn rose from the ranks of the unappreciated in the playoffs. It started in the District 1 Class AAAA tournament when the Knights, after coming in as the North region's No. 12 seed, placed fourth among 24 teams. It continued in the state playoffs, with wins over two district champions (Parkland and Coatesville) and, in a reversal of three previous losses to their Suburban One League Continental Conference rival, a defeat of Pennridge.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - They were one of the last qualifiers for the PIAA District 1 playoffs. And they were the district's fourth and final entry into the state tournament. Well, so much for the seedings. The North Penn Knights pulled off the highly improbable Friday night, ending their Cinderella story with a 6-5, nine-inning triumph over District 3's Lower Dauphin in the Class AAAA state final at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. The difference was Bobby Scott's walk-off single to left field that drove home Eddie Posavec from second base and set off a wild celebration.

It's funny how the tide can turn in high school baseball. Two weeks after being easily handled by Holy Ghost Prep in the District 1 Class AAA final, Upper Moreland is on the verge of claiming the program's first state championship. "That was probably the best thing for us," senior leftfielder Robert Knox said. "It kept us hungry. After losing that game, we had nothing to fall back on. This is our second chance. " Knox and the Golden Bears will try for Class AAA gold against defending titlist West York, of District 3, in the final at 1 p.m. Friday at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
