The Phantoms' Brian Boucher gave up five goals and made 12 saves before he was replaced by Scott Munroe.

Sacramento's Yolanda Griffith did what Charlotte's last six opponents could not - beat the Sting on the boards. "Tonight we saw a different team. They really crashed the boards. It wasn't a pretty game," Charlotte guard Dawn Staley said last night after the visiting Monarchs' 68-62 win. The Sting, who had their franchise-best six-game winning streak snapped, were outrebounded, 33-21. Griffith scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.

The Gwynedd-Mercy Academy girls' soccer team has been outscored, 15-1, in its first three games. That fact has done little to dampen the enthusiasm or commitment of Caitlin Ryan. The senior winger believes the Monarchs, once they get a few more games under their belts, will show significant improvement. "We're a pretty young team, so this was kind of expected," Ryan said. "I think we'll do better as the season goes along. We've done some positive things in the games we've played so far this year.

Rachel Sheehy and Taylor Thompson put the best in the phrase best friends. They are nearly inseparable and have become accustomed to completing each other's thoughts. Thompson normally starts something, and here comes Sheehy to finish it. That's exactly what happened yesterday, as Downingtown East defeated Gwynedd-Mercy Academy, 2-1, in a girls' soccer match in Exton. With her team trailing, Thompson scored on an assist from Sheehy in the 27th minute to knot the score.

A strong group of seniors has helped Gywnedd-Mercy get off to a 5-4-2 overall start and a 3-1-2 league record. The Monarchs topped New Hope-Solebury Tuesday on senior tri-captain Lorma Capili's first goal of the year. "Lorma has been the key to the success of our offense," Monarchs coach Meg Hutchinson said. "She hasn't had many goals, but she has been instrumental in setting up our scoring situations. Most times, she's the one bringing the ball up the right side. " Capili serves as tri-captain along with fellow seniors Katie Arbogast and Alison Walsh.

All streaks must end, but for the Villa Joseph Marie girls' basketball team, the end to this one was painful. A school record 14-game winning streak and, probably, the school's first Bicentennial League title slipped away in one ugly performance Thursday night. Gwynedd-Mercy beat the Jems, 37-29, to pull into a first-place tie. While a nearly flawless effort by the host Monarchs (17-3, 11-1) shouldn't be overlooked, it was the Jems' (15-3, 11-1) inability to score that decided the game.

Before Gwynedd-Mercy Academy could worry about defending its PIAA District 1 Class AA title or challenging for a state crown, it had to find a coach. Kate Tobias, who guided the Monarchs to the state championship in 2000 and runner-up status last season, resigned after a two-year run because of time commitments. Gwynedd-Mercy won two district titles under Tobias, who succeeded the highly successful Jim Francouer before the 1999-2000 season. Enter Jolene Bray, whose daughter Brittany is a junior diver for the Monarchs.

Tucked between sleek urban office buildings and the historic red brick of Center City is now a taste of wildlife. On Wednesday, a team of high school students with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service planted flowers in a plot they have been working on since March. The area, several feet of dirt between a stone wall and benches just outside the Free Quaker Meeting House at Fifth and Arch Streets, was once just fallen leaves and soil riddled with English ivy. Now, this strip of Independence National Historical Park is blooming with bee balm, a stringy red petal flower that hummingbirds like to poke their beaks into, and purple coneflowers, a favorite of bees.

IF YOU'RE IN Mayfair in May, you might want to look for a new crop of monarch butterflies. They will be part of the Mayfair Monarch Project, an effort to increase the number of monarch butterflies in North America, and spruce up the corridor between Mayfair and Holmesburg. The project is the brainchild of Steve Kanya, who for 24 years has operated a not-so-little shop of critters called the Insectarium in Holmesburg. In a few weeks, Kanya plans to unveil a new Butterfly Rainforest Pavilion inside the 8,000-square-foot warehouse behind his existing business and museum.

Gwynedd Mercy seniors Brigit Coleman and Erica DeCandido can do it all. They dribble with both hands, pass to teammates without looking, and attack the rim with straight-ahead speed. On Saturday night, in the District 1 Class 3A girls' basketball final, Coleman and DeCandido dribbled, passed, and drove Gwynedd Mercy to a 54-37 win over Villa Maria at Council Rock South for the Monarchs' second straight district championship. Gwynedd Mercy earned the top seed from District 1 in the PIAA Class 3A tournament.

Eleven days ago, Danielle Senour was the sixth player off the bench for the Gwynedd Mercy basketball team. She was a spark plug put in to ensure a tough defensive matchup, a player who saw solid minutes but never heard her name announced as a starter over the public address system. Nine days ago that changed. "At guard, No. 23, a junior, Danielle Senour," the announcer said Feb. 1 on her home floor. The Monarchs have played four games since then. None were bigger than Tuesday night when the Monarchs captured the Catholic Academies title.

From the sideline, Gwynedd Mercy basketball coach Tom Lonergan and his staff could tell it was taking the Monarchs an awfully long time to get into the set play. The seconds were winding down in the third quarter . . . 12, 11, 10 - and soon the numbers on the scoreboard were in single digits. Erica DeCandido, the team's leading scorer and a senior captain could tell, too - after all, she's normally part of the play. She jumped up from her spot on the bench and started gesticulating and yelling to her teammates, her voice trying to overcome the deafening crowd noise.

The look of complete and utter surprise on Erica DeCandido's face couldn't have been faked. Twenty-eight points? The Gwynedd Mercy senior couldn't believe it. "Oh, really? I thought I had, like, 10 points," DeCandido said, through laughter. "I think a lot must have come from my foul shots, though. "Wow, that's very surprising. I didn't know that. " It may not have been apparent to No. 21, but to everyone else watching Saturday afternoon, DeCandido's impressive performance was obvious.

UNCASVILLE, Conn. - Sometimes the best plays aren't always the ones a coach draws up. That was the case for Saint Joseph's on Sunday when the Hawks edged Old Dominion, 66-64, in the Naismith Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament consolation game. Two free throws by ODU's Aaron Bacote tied the game at 64 with 14 seconds left in regulation. But after a Hawks timeout, Shavar Newkirk buried a 15-foot shot with one second left that enabled St. Joe's to gain a split in the tournament. "It was pretty much a broken play," Newkirk said.

Three blaring honks cut through the air on a sleepy Philadelphia afternoon outside the Marian Anderson Recreation Center, home of the Anderson Monarchs Little League baseball team. They signaled the homecoming of the team of 13- and 14-year-olds, led by coach Steve Bandura after their 23- day, 21-city barnstorming tour of America. As the players disembarked from the 1947 Flxible Clipper touring bus on which the team traveled more than 4,000 miles, they were immediately engulfed by family and friends.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Last week, as their 23-day tour of civil-rights landmarks was about to begin in the Washington office of U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D., Ga.), the Anderson Monarchs learned that nine black churchgoers had died in a South Carolina massacre. Three days ago, when the Philadelphia youth baseball team's vintage bus stopped two blocks down Decatur Street from the hilltop where Alabama Gov. George Wallace once defiantly declared "Segregation forever," they saw that, for the first time anyone here could recall, no Confederate flags flew at the Alabama capitol.
