The Glen Mills basketball team held its destiny in its own hands. But in 2 fleeting seconds, it was snatched away. Grabbed and throttled by Chester's Larry Yarbray with a game-winning jump shot as the clock expired. It was that single play that prevented Glen Mills from claiming a tie for the last season's Del-Val League title and forcing a one-game playoff with Chester for the championship. "We never were able to recover from that loss," said coach Tom Mann. That became apparent when the Bulls, a heavy favorite to advance far into the District 1 playoff tournament, couldn't get past their second-round game with Norristown.

It wasn't exactly the kind of weather golfers enjoy. The thermometer held firmly at 38 degrees and the players were bundled in winter jackets, sweaters and hooded sweatshirts. Despite the morning cold, golfers turned out by the dozen for opening day Friday at the county-owned Oxford Valley Park course in Levittown. In the first hour, 27 golfers signed up to play, and the first 18 were already gathered at the clubhouse by the 8 a.m. starting time. Most were senior citizens, and most knew one other from playing together in past seasons.

The Philadelphia Singers opened their new season with a bang yesterday evening at the Church of the Holy Trinity. Director Michael Korn led his forces, accompanied by the Concerto Soloists Chamber Orchestra, through a broad cross-section of the choral literature, capped by a marvelously taut, vibrant rendition of Mozart's Solemn Vespers of the Confessor, K. 339. Of four vocal soloists for this work, soprano Doralene Davis was the standout, especially...

Haverford High's baseball team has nine seniors back from a club that went 3-17 last year. Again, that's last year, a season the Fords would just as soon forget. The reason for the optimism in the new season is because Haverford High is playing like a brand-new team this spring, streaking to a 3-0 start in the Central League while playing the kind of down-but-not-out baseball that would warm the heart of any coach. "These guys are not losers," Haverford coach Paul Bogosian said.

The 1986-87 wrestling season is here, but many who made the '85-86 campaign something special are not. Graduated are Ridley's Rob Harmon, Sun Valley's Bob Mariotti and Steve Lloyd, Springfield's Ken Hoeffert, Upper Darby's Matt Ianetta and K. C. Barr and St. James' Mark Walsh. All distinguished themselves not only during the regular season but throughout the postseason. However, several area grapplers appear capable of duplicating or possibly improving on the best performances offered by the class of '86. Names to be filed away for future reference include Greg Alfonsi, Dave Hoefner, Dave Holdsworth and Dave Romesburg of Springfield; Len Savioz of Strath Haven; Chris Carr of Upper Darby; Joe Yanulevich of Interboro; Matt Andrews of Glen Mills, and Neil Madison of Sun Valley.

On opening day, everyone's an optimist. At Veterans Stadium on Tuesday, fans' hopes were dented when Lenny Dykstra broke his wrist and the Phils lost their opener. But the season is young, and the new uniforms are a hit. On the field are (from left) Dykstra, Mariano Duncan, Dave Hollins, John Kruk, Dale Murphy, Darren Daulton and Wes Chamberlain.

The Network for New Music opens its season Sunday with four new works. Not having heard any of them, one can only conjecture, but they presuppose an emotional and intellectual range typical of the network's previous five fine seasons. They include Snow Night, a timbral exploration of the marimba and piano by Jan Krzywicki, which suggests a certain delicacy; the prolific Meyer Kupferman's Saturnalis, for amplified cello and tuba, which brings to mind a blustering patriarchy, and Paul Lansky's Stroll.

If you haven't seen the first season of USA's Mr. Robot and want to experience last summer's most surprising show for yourself, you might want to stop reading now and go to Amazon Prime, where all 10 episodes are available. When you return, we can struggle together with What It All Meant and talk about the new season. It says a lot about the kind of show Mr. Robot is that its creator, Sam Esmail, would like to see a spoiler alert on everything written about it, into perpetuity, and that, space permitting, I don't mind.

NEW YORK - Fran Dunphy has been coaching at the college level for 27 seasons. Fran McCaffery, another Philly guy, has been doing it for 19. They've gone against each other only twice. Even though Dunphy, when asked about that on Thursday, said, "It's amazing our paths haven't crossed before. " Well, at least not for a while. McCaffery, whose Iowa team will get Dunph's 10th-seeded Owls in Friday's first round of the NCAA South Regional at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, remembers things differently.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Between winter throwing sessions at his alma mater, Aaron Nola held a baseball in his right hand. He tinkered with different grips for his changeup as he paced the training facilities at Louisiana State University. The Phillies told Nola, their presumptive 22-year-old No. 1 pitcher, that if he were to do anything this winter, it was improve his change. "I played with several grips," Nola said. "One kind of fit me the best. One that I felt comfortable throwing. " This spring offers something of a luxury for Nola, a veteran of all of 13 major league starts.

Shameless has always gotten the short end of the stick. In any other previous TV landscapes, it might get its due. But with so much to watch, it's too often neglected. Shameless - its sixth season premieres at 9 p.m. Sunday on Showtime - perpetrates two great sins that keep it out of the Golden Age of TV conversation. The first is it's not perfect. It can be uneven. Characters can be written into corners. Its star - William H. Macy - was miscast in the lead as the ultimate deadbeat, formerly inebriated dad Frank Gallagher, who also ends up being the least interesting of his entire clan.

I offer greetings, gratitude, and a hearty salute to the makers of TNT's Legends , who have busted the espionage thriller wide open for its second season. Legends stars Sean Bean as a mysterious Jason Bourne-like figure who has two decades of experience as a covert operative but no clue to his real identity. Season Two premieres at 10 p.m. Monday. I liked it last year, and the first three episodes of the new season excite me. Viewers don't need to see the freshman season to enjoy the show, but it helps to know the basics.

Cinemax's extraordinary period drama The Knick is a meticulously written, brilliantly acted portrait of a New York hospital in 1900. Its first season proved the TV renaissance is far from over. Despite low ratings, The Knick returns for a second season at 10 p.m. Friday. The Knick is an intimate character study starring Clive Owen as intense, brooding surgeon John W. Thackery. It's directed, edited, and produced in its entirety by Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh ( sex lies & videotape , Ocean's Eleven , Traffic )

There is something deeply perverse about Manhattan , cable channel WGN's well-executed, edge-of-your-seat drama that returns for its second season at 9 p.m. Tuesday. Writer-producer Sam Shaw's series is an espionage thriller/domestic melodrama posing as historical epic. It's a fictionalized story of the scientists at Los Alamos, N.M., who developed the A-bomb during WWII. Manhattan is an overwrought, overripe piece of pulp fiction stuffed with overboiled intrigue.

IN THE EARLY 1990s, when Ron Hextall was in his mid-20s and entering the prime of his goaltending career, the message was pretty straightforward when it came to playing his position and getting ready for a new season. "All they did with us was gave us our equipment and said, 'Go get em,' " Hextall said. There weren't goalie-specific trainers to work with in the offseason. There weren't many offseason training programs designed for goaltenders, either. You'd show up at camp, put the pads on and go to work.
