Delaware had another easy weekend in the Division I-AA playoffs, following a strong defense and the arm of Matt Nagy to a 47-22 quarterfinal victory over Lehigh yesterday. The Blue Hens will host Georgia Southern, a 48-20 winner over Hofstra, in Saturday's semifinals. Delaware's defense picked apart the Mountain Hawks (12-1). The Blue Hens (12-1 and Atlantic Ten cochampions) scored 28 points on drives set up by three fumble recoveries and an interception. "In the second quarter, we made too many mistakes," Lehigh coach Kevin Higgins said.

For a few moments, Villanova quarterback Marvin Burroughs just sat on the 25-yard line. Lehigh defensive back Daynin Blake had just wrapped his arms around Burroughs' ankles and taken down the fleet-footed quarterback with 1 minute, 37 seconds left on the clock at Villanova Stadium. That sack on fourth and 7 in the fourth quarter ruined any hope of a triumphant comeback for Burroughs to his home turf. In his first game on Villanova's field since 2004, Burroughs left without a happy return, losing to Lehigh, 31-28.

Lehigh-Delaware has always been a fierce football rivlary. "Our alums at Lehigh talk so much about the Delaware game," said Kevin Higgins, coach of Lehigh's unbeaten Patriot League champions. "We talk Lafayette," Higgins said, referring to the 100-plus-year rivalry with nearby Lafayette. "But all our alumni want to know about is the Delaware game. " For years, Lehigh and Delaware were in the Middle Atlantic Conference. Until last season's 42-35 Lehigh victory, Delaware had won six in a row over 11 years.

The scar runs across Ron Jean's stomach like the seam on a football. Reluctantly he lifts his shirt and drags a finger across the now-smooth surface, hoping not to disturb the memories. His mother cut him. With a knife. Not long before she abandoned him. Ron Jean never knew his father. He has not seen his mother since the day she boarded a bus for New York City and left a frightened 13-year-old, crying alone in the West Palm Beach bus station in South Florida. That was in 1990.

With Michael Jordan, last season's Ivy League rookie of the year, on the sidelines with an injured ankle, the Penn Quakers sputtered at times and looked lost at others against Lehigh last night. But they staggered gamely, and managed a 75-73 victory over the Mountain Hawks at Stabler Arena. The Quakers played well enough to take leads as large as 13 points, but they also fell prey to a relentless Lehigh full-court press that catapulted the Mountain Hawks into the lead briefly near game's end. "Anytime you lose your point guard, you're going to struggle," said sophomore guard Matt Langel, who assumed the injured Jordan's place in the lineup.

John Bryner says the Lehigh football team has graciously accepted the role of underdog in the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs. "We're the only nonscholarship team in the tournament," said the junior offensive tackle from Hatfield, who graduated from Lansdale Catholic High. "People say, 'Lehigh, this is an easy week.' It gets us up a little bit more. " Bryner and the sixth-seeded Mountain Hawks (11-0) continue their surprising playoff run today at noon when they travel to Greenville, S. C., to face third-seeded Furman (10-2)

As exultant Massachusetts students swarmed the field and dragged down a stubborn metal goalpost, as red-clad Minutemen players danced in one another's arms, Lehigh's football team made the long walk to McGuirk Alumni Stadium's locker room at the close of a 12-1 season. The 12 victories tied Lehigh's best. But in this situation, minutes after a 27-21 Division I-AA quarterfinal loss to Massachusetts, it was the lone loss that left seniors Nick Martucci and Deron Braswell looking as lifeless as the surrounding hillsides.

There's no figuring the Penn Quakers these days. Yesterday against Lehigh, they came out firing, looking like the running, gunning, defensively sound Ivy League champions of yesteryear. But that lasted just one quarter. For the rest of the game, the Quakers' quarterbacks couldn't move the ball and their defense give up a bunch of big plays, leaving a sparse crowd of 5,074 wondering what happened in a 28-24 loss to the Mountain Hawks at Franklin Field. Lehigh's Seka Edwards, a 6-foot, 153-pound junior, dazzled with his play-action fakes and playmaking ability.

IT BECAME clearly evident very early last night that Maryland-Eastern Shore wasn't another Lehigh. On Friday, the Mountain Hawks led 12th-ranked Villanova by five with 14 minutes to go in Allentown before reality took over. This time, there would be no such issues at the Pavilion. These Hawks (0-2), who lost every starter from a team that won six games in the MEAC, have a new coach in Bobby Collins, who spent the last eight seasons at Winston-Salem (and four at Hampton before that)

ALLENTOWN - Four years ago, Darrun Hilliard came to Villanova from Liberty High School in Bethlehem, where he says football is really bigger than hoops. He was part of a class that included three four-star recruits: lead guard Tyrone Johnson, big man Markus Kennedy and shooting guard Achraf Yacoubou. Hilliard, a 6-6 wing, was rated as a three-star prospect. But 'Nova was the only place he wanted to be. Turns out, he's the only one from that group who stuck around. All the others are long gone, having moved on to other programs for whatever reasons.

ALLENTOWN - The excitement for Darrun Hilliard, a native of nearby Bethlehem, began when he boarded the bus from Villanova to the Lehigh Valley and PPL Center, where he wanted to put on a show for his hometown fans. However, his shot couldn't find the basket Friday night when the 12th-ranked Wildcats found themselves in a season-opening battle with Lehigh. He missed his first five shots and his first seven attempts from three-point range. But the Wildcats found others to pick up the slack, namely Dylan Ennis and Ryan Arcidiacono, and picked up a hard-earned 77-66 victory over the pesky Mountain Hawks before a crowd of 8,751 in the first college basketball game at the two-month-old arena.
