The 76ers can breathe a huge sigh of relief when they board the flight late this afternoon that will wing them to the West Coast for five games in seven days. The roof didn't collapse on them last night, after all, but there were some huge cracks in the ceiling during a 100-96 overtime victory over the Seattle SuperSonics at the Spectrum. The Sixers, who are 32-18 and just one game behind the Knicks in the NBA's Atlantic Division standings, found a way to escape rare subpar performances by All-Star forward Charles Barkley and guard Hersey Hawkins and take some momentum with them into tomorrow's game at Portland.

Alain St. Hilaire scored 10 minutes, 14 seconds into the second overtime to give the Trenton Titans a 4-3 win over the South Carolina Stingrays last night.

Cail MacLean scored the first goal and assisted on the winner.

After 162 minutes, 28 points, 18 timeouts, many great plays and a growing number of cramps, it came down to two words. "That's it. " They were spoken by Bill Wright, Abraham Lincoln High's athletic director, at 9:42 last night at Northeast's Charlie Martin Memorial Stadium, thus ending the longest scholastic football game in city history. Lincoln and Murrell Dobbins Tech scratched and clawed and, ultimately, dragged through regulation time and three overtimes to a 14-14 tie in a non- league season opener for Public League teams.

Kent McDonell scored both Syracuse goals, including the game-winner in overtime, to lead the Crunch to a 2-1 victory over the Phantoms in American Hockey League action at the Wachovia Spectrum last night. The winning goal came 1 minute, 35 seconds into the extra period after Phantoms rookie defenseman Joey Hope was whistled for a slashing penalty. McDonell capitalized during the ensuing four-on-three power play, blasting a pass from Mark Hartigan past goalie Antero Niittymaki.

PITTSBURGH - The Steelers escaped with a victory. The health of their franchise quarterback is another matter entirely. The Steelers edged the woeful Kansas City Chiefs 16-13 in overtime on Monday night but lost Ben Roethlisberger for most of the second half - and perhaps a lot longer - with a right shoulder injury. Roethlisberger left the game early in the third quarter after getting slammed to the turf by Kansas City linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston and did not return.

Ryan Hartey looked at an imaginary wall in the late fall of 1993 and told himself, in effect, even a 3-year-old could read this writing. So, after having hardly played for Father Judge High's freshman football team, Hartey decided to give up the sport. "I still loved football, though, and still supported the team," he said. "In 10th grade, I used to go to the games and root. " Then came last night, and Hartey basked in hero status. Hartey, a 6-1, 175-pound senior, caught a 10-yard scoring pass from Joe Tyer on the first play of overtime as Judge surprised Bishop McDevitt, 12-6, in a Catholic League quarterfinal at Northeast High.

Russell Walker didn't know whether to laugh, cry or collapse. So, he did all three. Isn't that almost always how days end for heroes of extralong sporting events? Walker, a 6-foot, 180-pound senior, plays fullback and cornerback for Southern High's football team. Yesterday, he did so splendidly through four quarters and four overtimes in the longest game in city-leagues history. With Walker scoring all his team's points, and making a game-saving interception with 55 seconds left in regulation, the Rams outlasted visiting West Philadelphia, 14-6, in a Public League classic.

The Philadelphia Aces defeated the host Rhode Island Gulls, 137-134, in overtime last night, and afterward, plenty of guys could claim a share of the credit. The Aces rallied from a 17-point halftime deficit, and Stewart Granger scored two of his game-high 35 points on a 10-foot jumper that knotted the score at 123 with 14 seconds left, sending the game into OT. Michael Brooks scored 21 points and Andre Moore added 20 points, 11 rebounds. And don't forget A.J. Wynder, a guy who usually plays only 12 minutes a game, who last night came off the bench to chip in 18 points in 27 minutes.

For once, St. Joseph's was on the good side of a dramatic second-half comeback. The Hawks, down by 17 with 12 minutes to play, surged back and pulled out a wild 78-76 overtime victory over Rhode Island in an Atlantic Ten game last night at Keaney Gym. Big second-half performances by Chris Gardler, Craig Amos and Marlon Miller allowed the Hawks to pull even, at 62-62, at the end of regulation. The Hawks (10-16 overall, 6-11 conference) won it by scoring the first nine points in overtime.
