Merion Mercy basketball coach Rob Baxter said he is happy his team does not have to go back to Villa Joseph Marie. But it's not for a lack of success. Sophomore guard Caroline Corzel scored 17 points and knocked down a pair of three-pointers to lift Merion Mercy at Villa Joseph Marie, 43-34, Tuesday in the first round of the District 1 Class AAA playoffs. It's Merion Mercy's third victory in 15 days at Villa Joseph Marie. The Golden Bears had won a Catholic Academies regular-season game on Feb. 4 and a play-in game on Feb. 9. "It was a little bit of an advantage," Baxter said.

It was a moment to note when Leo J. Scoda told Phoenixville Borough Council on Tuesday - the day after his 71st birthday - that he would not seek reelection later this year to a fifth four-year term as mayor. This is a year for milestones for Scuda, who is marking his 50th anniversary as tennis coach at Phoenixville High School, a job he took when he became a science teacher in 1963. That was the fall that he moved to town, after earning a bachelor's in biology at Pennsylvania State University.

Plymouth Whitemarsh's Anthony McKie scored his 1,000th career point Saturday. He had to work doubly hard for it, too. McKie, a senior guard, thought he had reached the milestone in the second quarter when he made a layup, but an offensive goaltending call wiped out the points. The home crowd didn't have to wait long, though. A few possessions later, McKie drained a 15-foot, running jumper from the left baseline. Cameron Johnson went on to score his only two points on free throws with seven seconds left to seal the Colonials' 50-47 nonleague win over Church Farm.

Lisa Mirarchi had been working with teammate Molly Namiotka on a behind-the-back bounce pass. On Thursday night, with her team leading by almost 20 points and a minute to go in the third quarter, she thought she had the ideal opportunity to try it. Both members of the Villa Maria basketball team executed it perfectly. "I just went for it, and hoped for the best," Mirarchi said. The play, which stemmed from a Mirarchi steal and led to a layup for Namiotka, summed up the game for both players in a 57-38 victory over Phoenixville.

Phoenixville received some unexpected help Saturday in its 40-19 victory over Pope John Paul II in Pioneer Athletic Conference football. Lineman Brian Hyland punched home two touchdowns out of the Phantoms' goal-line formation. "We've been using him as a blocker in short-yardage situations," coach Bill Furlong said. "There, we tried to catch them off guard. " Hyland, typically a two-way tackle, opened the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown run and made the score 26-0 in the third quarter with another 1-yarder.
