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.

WHILE IT never came to kicking and screaming, Tony Nayan did not go quietly. The last thing a shy, reserved kid wants to hear from his mother is that he'll have to switch high schools, especially when a change in cities is also part of the unappreciated package. Though Nayan, a 5-10, 145-pound senior wing guard for Northeast's basketball team, sports no accent, he spent his childhood in Bahston and still misses former friends and coaches. He's still kinda quiet, too. Guess what?

Imhotep Charter's Eerin Young, whose development as a multipurpose standout began with the Oak Lane Wildcats, has landed a football scholarship. At the end of an official visit last weekend, the 5-foot-9, 175-pound senior committed to play for Rhode Island. "It was just the perfect fit," he said. "Coach [Joe] Trainer and the other coaches showed me a lot of love. " Young starred for Imhotep as a wide receiver and running back. Last season, while helping the 14-1 Panthers advance to the PIAA Class AA state semifinals, he rushed for 1,000-plus yards and scored 21 touchdowns.

SUNRISE, Fla. - So much for the Flyers' attack looking anemic. Sparked by Matt Read's first career hat trick, they scored more goals Saturday night than they had in their first four games combined, triggering a 7-1 victory over the sad-sack Florida Panthers at the BB & T Center. "Hopefully this brings our confidence level up and we can continue to create offense," Read said after the breakout game. Defenseman Braydon Coburn (plus-3, four blocked shots) and center Claude Giroux each set up a pair of scores, goalie Ilya Bryzgalov (30 saves)

Pitman's Tim Delaney typically doesn't give up much in inches or pounds to his opponents, imposing his 6-foot-9, 220-pound frame on the court. But Friday night proved a test for the standout sophomore forward. The Panthers outlasted visiting Schalick in overtime, 71-65, in a Tri-County Conference game in which Delaney finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Opposite Delaney, Schalick boasted Rashaan Holloway, a 6-10, 300-pound junior forward, who also finished with 20 points, including six in the first quarter.

Villanova had played some promising basketball through its first three Big East games, overcoming inconsistent shooting and turnovers with strong rebounding and gritty defense. But with Pittsburgh at the Pavilion on Wednesday night, the Wildcats weren't able to do what they had been doing well and shut down offensively in the final five-plus minutes, going scoreless and dropping a 58-43 decision to the Panthers. The Wildcats (11-6, 2-2 Big East), who lost their second in a row after a seven-game winning streak, scored their fewest points ever in the Pavilion, which opened in 1986.
