The McCaskey Tornadoes, who squandered a 12-point first-quarter lead and trailed entering the fourth quarter, rallied to defeat the Downingtown Whippets, 63-57, in a PIAA state semifinal game last night at Governor Mifflin High School in Shillington, Pa. McCaskey's balanced attack was led by Tyrsa Cameron and Jodi Brooks, who scored six points each in the first quarter, as the Tornadoes jumped out to an early lead. McCaskey took advantage of a sluggish Downingtown start to score the first eight points of the game and 14 of the first 16. Downingtown managed to cut the margin to 20-9 at the end of the first quarter behind seven points from sophomore point guard Tina Nicholson.

Throughout Coatesville's 24-14 win over host J.P. McCaskey of Lancaster yesterday, fullback Terrence Wright couldn't stop smiling. It wasn't a friendly smile, but the cold-hearted grin of a predator who has his target in sight. Time after time, the 6-foot, 220-pounder smashed into the left side of the line behind tight end Clint Seace (6-3, 225) and tackle Greg Fisher (6-3, 230) and his younger, but not little, brother Jeff (6-3, 275). "Everything was working," Wright said.

Despite his team's hard-fought 10-7 win over host J.P. McCaskey on Saturday, Coatesville football coach Jack Helm was anything but happy. "I'm terribly disappointed, to the point of embarrassment," Helm said. "We lost our composure, and with a senior team like this, you can't do that. " The Red Raiders, the area's top-ranked team, improved to 3-0, while McCaskey dropped to 2-1. What had Helm so upset were six fumbles (three recovered by McCaskey) and the offense's inability to get anything going in the second half.

Coatesville toughened up its nonleague softball schedule this season. That might help explain why the Red Raiders are 2-4, but coach Bill Mendenhall puts most of the blame on his team's penchant for "one bad inning" and its lack of hitting. The Red Raiders didn't experience any defensive disasters and they picked up nine hits Monday in a 16-2 romp over host McCaskey of Lancaster that halted a two-game losing streak. "It was good to get through a game without opening up ourselves to a big inning (by the other team)

Hatboro-Horsham blew a 17-point lead but rallied in the final minute to upset District 3 champion McCaskey, 77-72, in the second round of the PIAA state Class AAAA boys' basketball playoffs last night at Coatesville High. The Hatters (27-4) will meet Chester - which beat Parkland, 64-58, last night - in Saturday's quarterfinals. McCaskey (24-6) trailed from the start until a tip-in by junior guard Bobby Eberhart gave the Red Tornados their first lead at 70-69 with 2 minutes, 2 seconds to play.

With the game on the line, his team trailing by two points, and everyone expecting visiting J. P. McCaskey to go for a possible game-winning 19-yard field goal, Tornadoes coach Jack Neal elected to go for a touchdown on fourth- and-goal from the Coatesville 2-yard line with just 1 minute and 21 seconds remaining in Saturday's contest. "We had a field goal called," Neal said. "But the players I know I can count on said, 'Coach, we can pound it in.' It was my decision, and I did what I thought we did best.

Downingtown coach John Barr had a vision of how Friday night's game against visiting McCaskey would go. "We thought that (McCaskey) would be able to score some points," Barr began. "But we thought our offense would offset that by being able to score even more. " Barr was only half right. McCaskey's offense was indeed able to move the ball and score, but the Whippets' offense committed five turnovers and scored only one harmless touchdown late in the game. The result was a 23-8 win for the Red Tornado that improved its record to 2-1-1.

Sometimes great expectations can be a heavy burden. The Downingtown Whippets, the No. 2 seed in District 1 Class AAAA, were expected to breeze by McCaskey of Lancaster in the opening round of the girls' state basketball championship at Coatesville. The Whippets (23-5) did win by a big margin, 57-39, but the blowout everyone expected never materialized until late in the fourth period as the Red Tornadoes stayed within 10 points. "We can't expect to beat everyone by 30 points," Downingtown coach Bob Schnure said after the game.

Heather Carrara could tell it might be one of those nights. During the bus ride, her Downingtown teammates were quiet, much quieter than usual. "It didn't seem like us," Carrara said. "Usually on the bus ride up, we're bouncing off the walls, but this time, I think some of us were really nervous. " The result was a sluggish start in which the Whippets allowed the J.P. McCaskey Tornadoes (34-1) to jump to a big lead in their PIAA Class AAAA state semifinal matchup Tuesday at Governor Mifflin High School.

It wasn't the type of scene they envisioned, but when a group of bleary-eyed La Salle seniors emerged from a melancholy locker room Saturday, they were greeted by an ovation from family and friends. The Explorers had fallen, 60-59, in the Class AAAA quarterfinals to J.P. McCaskey after last-second excitement at a near-capacity Spring-Ford. That didn't stop Najee Walls, David Krmpotich, and Daniel Corr from hearing respectful applause as they left the locker room. Minutes earlier, head coach Joe Dempsey had already conveyed the same message.

Gregg Downer dipped into his bag of tricks and pulled out a box - the box-and-one defense, to be exact. And in doing so, Lower Merion pulled off a methodical comeback over Lancaster McCaskey, 63-48, yesterday in the PIAA Class AAAA quarterfinals at Reading High's Geigle Complex. The Lower Merion head coach may have to dig a little deeper for Wednesday's semifinal against recent nemesis Chester. Including last year's state final, the Aces and Clippers have met three times. Chester won its fifth PIAA crown quite comfortably, but the last two tilts have been nail-biters.

Ed McCaskey, a former singer who married George Halas' daughter and went on to become Chicago Bears chairman, died yesterday. He was 83. McCaskey grew up in Lancaster, Pa., and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. He served in the Army in World War II, earning a bronze star and combat infantry badge. He was a salesman and a singer in a dance band when he met Virginia Halas, daughter of the Bears' founder. The two married in 1943. In 1967, McCaskey became vice president and treasurer and held that position for 17 years until Halas' death in 1983, when he became chairman of the board.

The chant went up immediately through the wooden classroom door and could be heard down the second-floor hall of Reading High last night. Glen Mills, still panting from a narrow 68-64 victory over J.P. McCaskey of Lancaster in the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA state boys' basketball playoffs, was ready to look ahead. "We want Chester. We want Chester. We want Chester. " It was the Bulls' way of relieving nervous tension, after surviving a major scare in the final three minutes against McCaskey.

All season, Coatesville has followed a season-long pattern of falling behind early and then mounting a comeback. This time, however, the Red Raiders met one of the few teams able to withstand one of their strong second-half efforts. A resilient Lancaster McCaskey squad ended Coatesville's bid for a second straight state title, posting a 56-54 victory yesterday in a PIAA Class AAAA quarterfinal boys' basketball game at Reading High's Geigle Complex. The Red Raiders, who had lost all five starters from last year's squad to graduation, finished the season with a 27-4 record.

It will cost $3.55 million and double shifts of contractors working four to six months to repair and reopen McCaskey East High School in Lancaster, Pa., according to an engineering report released yesterday. The $28 million high school, viewed as the gem of the school system when it opened five years ago, was hastily shut down three months ago when cracks appeared and chunks of concrete started popping from the walls. The report alleges defects in work or neglect in oversight by seven firms, including Gilbert Architects, the architect, and Wohlsen Construction Co., the project manager, both of Lancaster; Zug & Greenebaum engineering firm, of Lititz, Pa.; Cost Co. of Pittsburgh, the masonry contractor; Nitterhouse Concrete Products of Chambersburg, Pa.; Adams-Bickel Associates, of Boyertown, Berks County, general trades contractor; and BS&T Labs of Harrisburg, construction inspector.

Some things should be a constant this season at Coatesville. John Allen, the 6-foot-6, senior forward, is going to get his points. And the Red Raiders are going to see plenty of zone defenses. And to win, they are going to have to find a way to shoot over those zone defenses, especially against good teams like Lancaster McCaskey, teams the Raiders will have to figure out if they want to win their first state title. But Coatesville did not figure the Tornado on Saturday: Lancaster McCaskey went gleefully back to District 3 after capturing a 71-67 victory in the finals of the Coatesville boys' Tip-Off Tournament.

It seemed too good to be true. There was Coatesville's Kareem Shelton, streaking for yet another game-opening touchdown. The Red Raiders sure looked ready to once again overwhelm a foe with their great speed and athleticism. Except it was premature. Lancaster McCaskey shook off Shelton's 86-yard kickoff return and came right back at the Red Raiders with 21 points. And while the Raiders kept the game close the rest of the way, McCaskey kept the Raiders at bay long enough to post a 35-33 victory.
