There are 11 ways the Eastern field hockey team can turn the tide of a game. That is how many set plays Eastern has in its penalty-corner arsenal, and the Vikings showed again yesterday that there is no other team in the state that can capitalize better on the corner. Even in raw and slippery conditions, Eastern turned three corners into goals and cruised to a 4-0 victory over Lenape in the state Group 4 semifinals at Shawnee. Eastern (22-0) will meet the winner of today's game between Morris Knolls and Hamilton East in Sunday's state title game at 2 p.m. at College of New Jersey.

The Bishop McDevitt field hockey team recognized that it was an opportunity lost. The Lancers couldn't ask for more penalty corners (20 for the game) or more shots (12). But a few more goals would have been nice. The Lancers dominated yesterday's Catholic League game against visiting St. Hubert, but fell short by 2-1. "I said to [the players] that I can't even pinpoint how you can have that many shots on goal and that many corners and not score," said Lancers coach Bryna Vandergrift, whose team had a total of eight goals in its first two league games.

Before she goes to bed each night, West Chester East's Shannon Scott thinks of a field hockey game situation and draws a mental picture of how she would carry it out. It could be a play off a penalty corner, a give-and-go with a teammate, or even a penalty shot. Yesterday, she got a chance at the latter on the field and reacted just the way she always pictures. Her drive into the lower right-hand corner of the goal cage gave the Vikings a 2-1, come-from-behind win over visiting Phoenixville in their nonleague game.

Strath Haven outhustled visiting Radnor for much of their Central League field hockey game yesterday but came up with nothing to show for its effort. The favored Red Raiders got their offense untracked in the final 16 minutes en route to a 3-0 victory. For the Panthers (2-3 overall, 1-2 league), it was simply a case of running out of gas against Radnor, which improved to 4-1, 3-0 in the league. "That was very frustrating," Panthers coach Kate Mulhearn said. "Radnor's a very tough team, and we played awesome in the first half.

Senior Ashlee Willis and her Glassboro field hockey teammates had an opening-day performance yesterday that will reverberate throughout the Tri-County Conference Classic Division. Willis scored four goals to lead the Bulldogs to a 5-1 victory over visiting Salem in a division game and season opener for both teams. A three-time all-conference forward, Willis was particularly happy because the win was a nice way for the 'Dogs, who moved in from the Diamond Division, to introduce themselves to the defending Classic champs.

Before last night's Southern Chester County League field hockey showdown between Oxford and Garnet Valley, Hornets coach Gary Ham said he thought the team that scored first could win it. The Jaguars got the first goal but the Hornets bounced back with one of their own and the two teams had to settle for a 1-1 overtime tie that didn't satisfy anyone. The Jaguars remained in first place in the league with a 7-0-1 record, but their bid for a perfect league season was gone. Oxford, which was looking to avenge a 3-2 overtime loss to Garnet Valley in their first meeting, remained in second place with a 6-1-1 mark.

For some time, Collingswood's Lindsay Kocher said, she and her field hockey teammates have worked to improve what they considered one of the weaker aspects of their game: penalty corners. No doubt Collingswood coach Sandy Ritter thought the practice would be useful. Yesterday, it was. Scoring off three penalty corners, the Panthers defeated Northern Burlington, 4-0, in a state Group 2 semifinal at Hopewell Valley High. Collingswood (20-1-1) will face Pompton Lakes - which defeated Voorhees, 3-1, in penalty strokes in the other semifinal - for the state championship at 2 p.m. Sunday at the College of New Jersey.

Marple Newtown field hockey coach Wendy Smith almost retired last season, thinking she just couldn't take the squad to the next level. Her underclassmen convinced her that together they could do it, though. Now they have done it. The No. 6-seeded Tigers (16-1-2) jumped out to an early lead and upset No. 2 Council Rock, 3-2, in a PIAA District 1 Class AAA semifinal yesterday at Perkiomen Valley High. The Tigers will play in the district title game tomorrow for the first time in school history.

Notre Dame Academy dominated the statistics but had to come up with a pair of goals in the final eight minutes of play for a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over host Germantown Academy yesterday in the opening Inter-Academic League field hockey game for both teams. The Irish, expected to be strong contenders again after sharing the regular-season title with Penn Charter last season, got their first goal from Caitlin Watson with 7 minutes, 50 seconds left to play to tie the score at 1-1. A little more than two minutes later, Melissa Latiff got the game-winner in a one-on-one battle with Patriots goalie Meredith Dean.

Olivia DiMatteo picked the perfect time to score the first game-winning goal of her Haddonfield field hockey career. The senior, who did not start on varsity last year, tipped in a shot by junior left wing Liz Rexon with no time remaining in a scoreless tie to give the host Bulldogs a 1-0 win over West Deptford and the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 2 championship yesterday. Haddonfield (14-0-3), the top seed in the South and ranked No. 8 by The Inquirer, is scheduled to visit Central Jersey champion Bishop Eustace on Thursday at 4 p.m. "I heard the timer go off, and I knew that a shot would have to go in," said DiMatteo, referring to the play-in-progress rule.

WHITEHALL, Pa. - Villa Maria experienced déjà vu Saturday in the PIAA Class AA state field hockey final. For the second straight year, the Hurricanes came up short in the title game, losing to District 2's Crestwood, 1-0, at Whitehall. All the Comets (23-2) needed was a goal after just 179 ticks of the clock. Crestwood converted the second of two early penalty corners when junior Marissa Surdy drove home the ball from the top of the circle. The early score threw off Villa Maria (22-2)

Just two days after capturing the Catholic League field hockey championship, Archbishop Carroll was bounced from the first round of the PIAA Class AA state playoffs on Tuesday afternoon. The Patriots fell in double overtime to District 3's Donegal, 4-3, at Germantown. Megan Kelly scored a hat trick for Carroll and helped the team take a lead three times. Donegal's Karlee Farr tied the score with no time remaining in regulation before scoring the winner off a penalty stroke.

When three attackers have been playing field hockey together for three years, it's inevitable that they'll develop a bit of chemistry. That's exactly what happened Wednesday at Cardinal O'Hara, as juniors Marissa Cicione and Grace Boston and senior Carlie Spaeder combined for five goals and an assist in the Lions' 9-0 rout of Archbishop Ryan. "They've really been working really hard this year to really mesh and play a lot better together," O'Hara coach Marie Murphy said. "They really work on their passes with each other and, if they don't have anything, really using our backfield to try to get it up to them.

With just five seconds left in regulation, Holly Nicolardi remained poised Monday afternoon as she lifted Marple Newtown to a late 2-1, nonleague win at Notre Dame in a girls' soccer game. The sophomore smoothly settled a loose ball with her chest, navigated past the Notre Dame goalie, and fired the game-winner with her left foot to rally the Tigers. Nicolardi, a center midfielder, also assisted Deirdre Bradley's first-half goal. Kylie Klof posted the win with 15 saves. Emily Bogan scored for Notre Dame.

Playing goalie against the field hockey team that is ranked No. 1 in the nation, Alex Pecora knew she would be in the middle of the action. That was the good news. "No pressure, no fun," said Pecora, Bishop Eustace's standout senior. The bigger news on Monday night was that both goalies were busy as Bishop Eustace and Eastern, which is No. 1 in the topofthecircle.com national rankings, played a fast-paced game with lots of scoring chances at both ends of the field. Pecora, who is headed to Iowa on a scholarship, made 14 saves - including a spectacular diving deflection of a penalty stroke and several sliding stops.

Tuesday's first-round game in the PIAA Class AAA state field hockey playoffs didn't start very well for Mount St. Joseph. The Magic had the first crack at the ball, but pushed it out of bounds in their half of the field. Lower Dauphin (23-2), the defending state champion, pounced on the mistake, got a quick penalty corner, and scored with just 53 seconds gone in the game at Wissahickon. The Mount spent much of the afternoon playing catch-up before senior midfielder Jenna Seybert broke a tie to give her team a 4-3 victory and a berth in Saturday's state quarterfinals.

Owen J. Roberts drew a bye in the opening round of the District 1 Class AAA field hockey playoffs, and that led to a little concern for coach Clarence Jannelle. With a bye for the third-seeded Wildcats, it meant another day of practice, but he didn't see the sharpness that he expected. On Tuesday, the Wildcats went through a full gamut of game situations they might face in their opening game against Downingtown East on Wednesday. Jannelle called that practice better than Monday's, but it still wasn't what he wanted.
