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.

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.

September brings with it more than just cool air and colorful back-to- school vestments. It also ushers in a new season of bright ideas on the cultural front - in museums, concert halls and theaters. They are ideas that, in the words of general manager Greg Row of the Peoples Light and Theater Company, "make people look at the way we live together, see people in life that may not come to them, and expand their knowledge of how people live. " Following are some of the cultural events of this season: The Peoples Light and Theater Company of Malvern will again attempt an idea it tried for the first time during the summer: staging two shows at once.

They drink our blood in voluminous amounts, but when these vampires get cut, they don't bleed red, but a milky white nastiness that's filled with tiny, aggressive worms. Welcome to the dank, slimy world of The Strain , FX's enjoyable, if frustrating and uneven horror series. It kicks off a 13-episode second season at 10 p.m. Sunday. Adapted by celebrated film maestro Guillermo del Toro and author Chuck Hogan from their trilogy of novels, The Strain applies classic vamp tropes to an alternate version of New York, a chaotic city ruled by the iron will of nefarious billionaire Eldritch Palmer (Jonathan Hyde)

I think it's safe to assume Rosa (Barbara Rosenblat) is dead. But what about Vee (Lorraine Toussaint), that poisonous drug lord and prison house bully who so thoroughly dominated the second season of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black ? Will Vee pop back up like a recurring nightmare? That question is answered in the third season of Orange Is the New Black . All 14 episodes were set to be released on Friday. When we last saw Rosa in the Season Two closer, the sexy bank robber turned aging cancer-ridden convict was driving Litchfield Penitentiary's dilapidated transport van into the sunset to the sounds of Blue Öyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper.

AMC's computer-industry period drama, Halt and Catch Fire , returns for its second season at 10 p.m. Sunday a fresher, better, stronger series. Viewers who missed it last year may want to give the drama - and its handsome cast led by Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis, and Kerry Bishé - another chance. In its first season, Halt tried to capitalize on the public's fascination with the birth of the PC era and the geniuses who created it, men such as Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Bill Gates.

He has committed murder, betrayed men who counted him as a friend, even burned down his own house. There seems very little Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), wouldn't do to serve the Patriot cause. Played with great control, impressive nuance and wit by Bell, Abe is the hero of Turn: Washington's Spies, AMC's spy thriller about the American Revolution, which returns for its second season with a feature-length installment at 9 p.m. on Monday. Abe's greatest sin, however, is to embark on a career despised by all men of breeding as illegitimate, dishonorable and sleazy: espionage.

SOUTH PHILLY'S own "Mob Wives" star, Natalie Guercio , will bring her "real-deal Italian life" back to VH1 at 9 tonight with the premiere of the fifth season. "Some people that shall remain nameless don't take [the Italian life] too seriously on the show and beyond," Guercio told me. "It's breeding and how you're brought up. " Renee Graziano, perhaps? Either way, viewers will be getting more of that "real-deal lifestyle" this season. Guercio says that this season focuses more on her personal life, including boyfriend London and son Nunzio , and work life at the Carto Funeral Home (2212-14 S. Broad St.)

The Flyers have questions about their Kimmo Timonen-less defense; questions about Claude Giroux's health and who will replace left winger Scott Hartnell; questions about whether young players such as Sean Couturier, Luke Schenn, and Michael Del Zotto can take their games to another level. But for the first time in a while, there are few questions about the team's most important position. That's because goalie Steve Mason rediscovered his mojo last season, and even outplayed the great Henrik Lundqvist in the Flyers' seven-game playoff loss to the New York Rangers.

THE DRAFTS room is empty. The spilled beer has been cleaned up. No more cheat sheets, sleepers or mock drafts. For better or worse, richer or poorer, in suspension and health, we have our fantasy teams now. What we don't have are answers. Those will come in the next 17 weeks. By then, hopefully my guys will have paid their league fees. As Week 1 kicks off, here are a handful of questions that will be decided between now and when the Christmas carolers knock on the door and scare the bejesus out of our dog. *  What sort of impact will Darren Sproles have on LeSean McCoy's numbers?

When the Eagles' exhibition season came to a weary close Thursday night, it closed, as NFL exhibition seasons always do, with the starters on the sideline, each nearly invisible beneath his ball cap, each counting the days until preparation gives way to participation. Nick Foles stood watching with the others Thursday, sometimes looking at a play chart, sometimes offering advice, but mostly waiting to see what his first season as a starting quarterback might have in store. Foles has been allowed to prepare in peace for the most part.

It wasn't April and it wasn't raining. The tendinitis and flu symptoms were gone and the grip on the baseball was fine. The performance, however, remained intolerable for Cole Hamels, the Phillies lefthander who is trying to avoid the deplorable start that helped destroy his own and his team's 2013 season. Remember Hamels' 2013 season? Remember the 2-11 record and 4.58 ERA through his first 17 starts? Remember how he'd pitch well in some outings and the team wouldn't score and then in others the team would pile up the runs and he'd pitch poorly?
