Watching Jlon Flippens play for the Penn Charter girls' soccer team, there are many things you notice about her game. There's her speed, prevalent both on and off the ball. Then there are her technical skill and impeccable touch. There's a reason the sophomore plays for the under-15 national team. But during Tuesday's dominating 7-1 win over Episcopal Academy in an Inter-Ac League game, Flippens demonstrated that her most impressive skill might not be scoring goals - although her knack for that is a sight to behold - but rather, her decision making.

Samir Bullock finished just three rushing yards shy of 300 on Saturday night, and the junior running back sliced nonleague foe Chichester for four touchdowns as host Archbishop Ryan rolled to a 54-10 win. The rout gives Ryan its first 4-0 start since 1988, the Raiders' first of four straight Catholic League championship seasons. Bullock, who transferred from Father Judge, gained 297 yards on 17 carries (17.5 yards per carry). His touchdowns included runs of 80 and 64 yards. The Raiders have outscored opponents by an average of 37.25 points, and they'll put their undefeated mark on the line next week against La Salle, a team they last beat in 2006.

Devon Prep started overtime with a wave of momentum. Archbishop Carroll took all of it away with a single kick. Tommy Spedding's second goal of the game, with about a minute left in the extra period, gave Carroll a 4-3 win in a nonleague boys' soccer game Saturday. Devon Prep trailed by 3-1 with 90 seconds remaining, but Drew Brekus scored twice for the Tide, with the tying goal coming in the final second of regulation.

Tommy Coyle's career as head football coach at Penn Charter officially begins at 11 a.m. Saturday against visiting Samuel Fels. But the 44-year-old is no stranger to the private school in East Falls. He was an assistant with the Quakers before taking the top spot at Father Judge in 2000, and his children - Ava, 10, and Quinn, 8 - are students there. "It's not a completely foreign environment for me," said Coyle, who went 73-77 in 13 seasons at Judge and guided the Crusaders to the Catholic League Class AAAA final in 2008.

AYEAR AGO, the Daily News tabbed Episcopal's football team as one trying to create a stir as the season approached. In hindsight, it's likely that description was much too tame. How about uproar? All the Churchmen did was race to their best record (10-0, 5-0) in school history, winning their first outright Inter-Ac crown since 1982. Sparked by the talents of Daily News Inter-Ac Player of the Year Adam Strouss (now at Penn), the team leader at quarterback, and a suffocating defense that allowed a paltry 35 points (six shutouts)
