Don't count Pope John Paul II's Brent Mahoney among those who view accounting as a boring field of study. "I took it in high school," he said. "I actually enjoyed it. I'm probably going to major in accounting in college. " Wednesday night at Plymouth Whitemarsh, Mahoney crunched some serious numbers. He collected 13 points, nine rebounds, and two assists and helped the third-seeded Panthers pull past second-seeded Glen Mills, 48-42, in a PIAA District 1 Class AAA boys' basketball semifinal.

For what Imhotep Charter coach Andre Noble called "some bad practice efforts," Abraham Massaley recently lost his starting position. "I'm not used to coming off the bench," the senior guard said. "But at this point of the season, you have to put your ego aside and just play hard. " Sunday at Temple's Liacouras Center, it Massaley's late basket lifted the Panthers to a 67-66 triumph over Rysheed Jordan and never-say-die Roberts Vaux in a thrilling Public League final. His deciding field goal, on a left-side drive, came with 11 seconds to play.

The lasting snapshot of the Flyers' 5-2 loss to Florida on Thursday: frustrated goalie Ilya Bryzgalov getting pulled from the game, skating off the ice, and throwing his stick as he walked down the tunnel. One night after they stormed back for an exhilarating victory against one of the NHL's elite teams, the Flyers were embarrassed by the lowly Panthers at the Wells Fargo Center. Maybe they were sapped from their 6-5 comeback win in Pittsburgh the previous night. Or maybe inconsistency is just the calling card of this 8-10-1 team.

KIMMO TIMONEN said he has seen it "a million times" in his career. The Panthers, losers of five straight since their last "trap game" win in Philadelphia 2 weeks ago, saw it from a million miles away. "You saw a tired Flyers team today," Timonen said. "We played a really hard, charged game [at Pittsburgh], got a big two points and got home at 2 o'clock [in the morning]. We had bad sleep [Wednesday] night. The hardest game to win is when you come back home after a road trip. " It's even harder, apparently, after knocking off one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference a night earlier.

Strath Haven center Kevin Sherry scored only four points on Friday night, but his last bucket just might have been the biggest of his career. With the score tied and a little less than 10 seconds to play in overtime, Sherry grabbed a rebound and scored on a putback to give the host Panthers a 47-45 victory over West Chester Henderson in the first round of the PIAA District 1 Class AAA boys' basketball tournament. "I was just happy to be able to get a chance to put it back," Sherry said.

IT HAD all the makings of a classic, call-it-from-a-mile-away trap game. The Flyers were coming off their most impressive - and most important - win of the young season, topping a tough Tampa Bay team Tuesday in a nationally televised game in both the United States and Canada. It was an emotion-sapping win. The next opponent was a less-than-scintillating draw in Florida, the same team the Flyers thumped by six goals less than 2 weeks ago. It was the Panthers' worst beating in almost 6 calendar years.

Twelve nights after they routed the Panthers in Florida, the Flyers had to huff and puff to try to get a victory in a rematch Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Didn't happen. Florida jolted the Flyers in a shootout, 3-2, and ended the home team's two-game winning streak. In the shootout, Jonathan Huberdeau and Peter Mueller easily beat goalie Ilya Bryzgalov. Down at the other end, Florida goalie Jose Theodore stopped Matt Read and Claude Giroux, making the Flyers 23-42 all-time in shootouts.
