Only a few seconds remained in the District 1 Class AAA boys' soccer final Saturday night, and many of the Great Valley starters had already exited the game. As they stood on the sideline at midfield planning who would be the target of their celebratory field rush, an assistant coach ducked his head into the huddle. "Just don't get hurt, guys," he said. By the time the final horn sounded in Great Valley's 3-0 win over Downingtown West at West Chester East, that was the only thing left for the Patriots to worry about.

IT DIDN'T exactly shock the world, but, as the 4 p.m. NFL trade deadline approached yesterday, the Eagles made a minor deal, dispatching 32-year-old nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga to New England, along with a sixth-round pick next spring, for a fifth-rounder, also in 2014. Astute observers will note that the Pats' pick is likely to be toward the end of the fifth round, and the Eagles' pick is likely to be in the upper half of the sixth, so, basically, the Eagles got Sopoaga off their roster without embarrassing the 10-year veteran by deactivating or releasing him. Sopoaga was a starter, getting 47 snaps against the Giants, but not a particularly productive one, with 10 solo tackles, 18 total, in eight games.

The Eagles traded nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga to the New England Patriots before Tuesday's trade deadline. Sopaoga was packaged with a sixth-round pick for a fifth-round pick in the 2014 draft. Sopoaga, 32, was signed in the offseason to be the team's starting nose tackle. He played eight games, had 18 tackles, and played 39 percent of the defensive snaps. Sopoaga made $3.25 million from the Eagles, including a $2.75 million signing bonus and half of his $1 million salary. Considering the output and the expense, Sopoaga's signing did not work out for the Eagles.

You don't have to remind the Great Valley boys' soccer team what happened on Oct. 25 last year. Luis Benitez Palermo said he has been thinking about that day ever since he walked off the field. Jay Nunez talked about the overwhelming disappointment surrounding the game, and Patrick Murphy remembers the looks on the seniors' faces when they realized that their high school soccer careers were over. That game and the feelings that went along with it are etched in the minds of every returning member of the Patriots (18-0)

Several dozen runners jogged more than five miles on the roads around Valley Forge National Historical Park on Sunday morning to protest the park's being shuttered during the partial federal government shutdown. The runners were inspired after John Bell, a Chadds Ford marathoner, received a $100 ticket last week for jogging in the park during the closure. Several runners' groups, including Bell's group, Runderlust, gathered at 9 a.m. for what they dubbed a "Patriots' Run. " The park has popular running trails free of traffic.

I WAS READING the letter defending the patriots who have shut down the government. I had a few problems with it. I'm sure that Kevin Metz, the writer of it, doesn't think that government is important. There's never been any mine disasters, nuclear plant problems, food-borne illnesses, water pollution, Love Canals, bank collapses or bad air quality. Just trust business, they are concerned with safety, not profits. I'd rather have the 800,000 government workers back on the job. I don't trust anyone.

Bordentown's undefeated league record in boys' soccer was in jeopardy Thursday on the road against Burlington County Patriot opponent Holy Cross. The score was tied late in the game. Goalie Dino Gromitsaris made a couple of huge saves to keep the score tied for the Scotties until senior striker Mike Okafor scored with 5 minutes, 38 seconds left off a rebound to push Bordentown to a 2-1 victory. The Scotties moved to 5-0 in the league and 9-1 overall. Robert DiPierro scored the other goal for Bordentown.

Cary Williams met with Eagles coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman after he told reporters Sunday that the Eagles weren't feared around the NFL and that he wanted to "establish a tenacity" on defense. Williams, who played for the Ravens before joining the Eagles, also said that last week's scrimmages against the Patriots would have been handled differently in Baltimore. "The words I used were taken out of context," Williams said Monday. "I just wanted Chip and Howie Roseman to understand that's not my intentions.

SO, YOU THOUGHT the Eagles' defense had no place to go but up this year, huh? You thought they hit rock bottom during the 2012 Juan Castillo/Todd Bowles debacle when they finished tied for 29th in the league in points allowed, 23rd against the run, 32nd in takeaways, 26th in third-down efficiency and 32nd in opponent passer rating. Think again. After spending the previous 2 days getting worked over by Tom Brady and the Patriots offense over at the NovaCare Complex, Bill Davis' new-and-not-so-improved defense moved over to Lincoln Financial Field last night, hoping a change of scenery might help them.

SO, THE EAGLES were pretty much who we thought they were in the first dress rehearsal of the Chip Kelly … ow, sorry, had to stop typing there, hand cramped up. See, I try to keep play-by-play, with notes on who made the tackle, the formation, etc., and Chip kept hurrying the snap and, hey, let's not even talk about how I can't decipher my notes after the second drive. I'm typing hurt here. Where were we? Oh, yeah. Chip Kelly era. Dress rehearsal. New England won Kelly's first preseason game, 31-22.
