Through the better part of two periods last night, Haverford High looked as though it would not be denied its first Flyers Cup championship in ice hockey. The Fords were swarming all over Germantown Academy in the second game of their best-of-three Tier I Flyers Cup final at the Skatium. They were ahead, 2-1, and gaining momentum as the Patriots raced to keep up. But with one blow of the whistle, the Fords quickly saw their Cup hopes vanish for the evening. A penalty called on Haverford's Zach Hafer gave Germantown Academy life, and the Patriots turned the tide, taking a 4-3 victory to send it to a deciding game.

It is a tangled triangle of gentlemen of the bar: Two Delaware County attorneys and one Supreme Court justice, each accusing at least one of the others of various sorts of legal misconduct and vengeance. The Supreme Court justice is Rolf R. Larsen, who is accusing Delaware County attorney Robert Surrick of discussing publicly a judicial board's review of Larsen's alleged misconduct. Surrick, in turn, says Larsen is out to get him because Surrick has talked too much and has demanded that Larsen step down.

The NHL will not discipline the Flyers' Tom Sestito for allegedly pulling Brandon Prust's hair during Sunday's loss to the Rangers. "That's something you don't do," Prust said, according to a report in ESPNNewYork.com. Prust seemed surprised that the league was looking into it and said he did not care whether Sestito was fined or suspended. Sestito was involved in three fights in the game, including two with defenseman Stu Bickel. Sestito was given a game misconduct for his third fight, the limit for one player in a game.

Archbishop Charles J. Chaput said Friday that he had permanently removed five priests from active ministry for sexual abuse or misconduct with minors, and reinstated three others after an investigation could not substantiate similar claims against them. The decisions, which followed a 14-month review, marked one of the largest ousters of active priests in the archdiocese's history. It also validated a February 2011 grand jury report that accused local church leaders of ignoring evidence of clergy sex abuse and stirred new outrage among area Catholics.

There are problems with the way misconduct charges against Pennsylvania's teachers and school officials are handled. The system doesn't adequately protect the accused person's right to privacy and to due process. But rather than fixing these specifics, the state Senate has passed a bill that would shrivel the secretary of education's disciplinary power and give major power in such cases to an advisory board dominated by teachers and school officials. The Senate plan would expand the Professional Standards and Practices Commission (PSPC)
