Rich Como no longer coaches the Coatesville football team, but he was on many of the Red Raiders' minds during their 37-14 victory over Manheim Township Saturday at Scott Field. Last year, with Como at the helm, the Raiders lost a tough 7-6 game on a muddy Manheim field that more closely resembled a swamp than a football field. This year, they wanted to win it for Como. "I told the players that coach Como had said to me earlier in the week to get this game for him. The guys really respect him as a coach and as a person," current Coatesville coach Mike Dominick said.

NEW HOLLAND, Pa. - For the first 16 minutes in the Class AAA second-round matchup Tuesday between Neumann-Goretti and Manheim Central, Taylor Funk was the best center on the court. As a team, Manheim Central may have been no match for the Saints, who cruised to a 72-44 win at Garden Spot, but Funk, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, still finished the first half with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Meanwhile, Neumann-Goretti's own 6-foot-8 sophomore, Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree, had to regroup at halftime.

Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale said Friday that an unusual plan to finance construction of the I-95/Pennsylvania Turnpike connection "raises alarms" and may prompt an investigation by his office. DePasquale said he was especially interested in why an entity was created to broker the deal, in which wealthy foreign investors would lend the turnpike $200 million in exchange for possible permanent residence in the United States. DePasquale said his office was legally bound to wait until a transaction is completed before launching an audit, so "it may be several months or longer" before he formally investigates the turnpike plan.

Megan Shaughnessy said it would've felt great to score a goal on her birthday. But with her luck, she said, she wasn't surprised that the ball hit the post. A senior attack on the Great Valley girls' lacrosse team, Shaughnessy missed a chance to score on a wide-open net a little more than midway through the second half of the Patriots' 18-10 home win against Manheim Township on Friday. To make matters worse, the goal could have come on her 18th birthday. "I just get really excited," Shaughnessy said while trying to explain her miss.

JUST AS HIS offense was in danger of springing a leak, Lou Zambino had the good sense to enlist the aid of a plumber.

Paging Terrance Stafford . . . Paging Terrance Stafford. "I kind of had a feeling it was going to happen," said the 6-foot, 210-pound senior. "There wasn't anyone else.
