Going into the District 1 playoffs scheduled to begin on Wednesday, Abington (17-0 overall, 12-0 Suburban One National) is not only riding an undefeated record but also loaded with optimism.

Each year, Penn Wood football coach Mike Guille reads the local newspapers, notices a strange phenomenon and asks himself the same question: Why are losing athletic teams in so many boys' and girls' sports competing in the district playoffs? "It confuses the living heck out of me," Guille said. "How can you have teams that are 3-15 and they're in the playoffs - and here you have (football) teams that are 10-0 and their season is done?" Most football coaches, seeing the possiblity of added local interest in their sport, appear to favor some form of a district playoff, even if they aren't too optimistic about getting it.

The Soul (9-9) were left in playoff limbo after losing to the Power, 64-34, in Pittsburgh Saturday night. But all they had to do was wait for the Tampa Bay Storm to lose to the Cleveland Gladiators (which they did, 56-49), and the Soul slipped into the playoffs. The Soul will travel to the No. 1-seeded Gladiators for a game Saturday at 7:30. "You hate having to back into the playoffs," Soul coach Clint Dolezel said after the Soul lost, "but we will be rooting for Cleveland and get in the right frame of mind to be ready for next week.

The NJSIAA yesterday denied Clayton High's request for a forfeit boys' basketball victory over St. Mary's Hall. Without the win, Clayton's record remained at 6-7 at Tuesday's cutoff date, and it does not qualify for the South Jersey Group 1 tournament. Teams with a .500 or better record after Tuesday's games earned tournament berths. Clayton athletic director Jim Hall asked the NJSIAA to award Clayton a forfeit win for its scheduled game against St. Mary's Hall on Jan. 24. The St. Mary's bus broke down before it reached its school, and it was unable to make the trip to Clayton.

West Chester Christian ended its regular season with a decisive 71-36 win over visiting Elkton (Md.) Tuesday night. Elkton hung tough for a quarter and was behind only 14-10 going into the second quarter. But at that point, the Conquerors turned up their defensive intensity and went on a 22-4 run to take a 36-14 halftime lead. "We started off slow, but in the second quarter we started playing good defense and got our running game going," coach Bill Muller said. Elkton could not handle the Conquerors' quickness and pressing defense, and West Chester had 19 steals in the game and converted many into easy fast-break points.

Sue Reilly has been a champion of girls' golfing rights in the Catholic League over recent seasons.

But she is not all smiles it seems. For the first time since she assumed the head coaching reins at the school, the Lancers will miss the Catholic League team playoffs, which are scheduled to be held next Monday.

Academy Park baseball players had to endure two agonizing unknowns last week: whether they would make the playoffs in PIAA Class AAA District 1, and if they did, whether their coach, Anthony Gagliardi, would be joining them. On Friday, the 215 teachers in the Southeast Delco School District went on strike. They haven't had a contract since the end of the 1989-90 school year. The first problem was solved Thursday, when the Knights found out they received an at-large bid in the playoffs.

Despite a 5-10-4 record, the Union appear to be headed in a positive direction. But a poor start and several injuries early in the season have left them behind in the playoff chase. Although the Union are just two points out of the sixth and final playoff spot in the East (six teams make it in each conference), the four teams immediately ahead of them have at least two games in hand.

THERE'S ONE team in Philadelphia without a quarterback controversy at the moment. They have the top-ranked offense in their league and a serious shot at bringing a title home to the city. The Soul now sits atop the East Division at 12-3 for the season after defeating the Tampa Bay Storm, 64-42, last night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Bryan Robinson shot through the Tampa Bay offensive line just as quickly as it took quarterback Jason Boltus to take his second snap of the third quarter. With the Soul defensive lineman bearing down on him, Boltus kept his eyes downfield and shuffled backward to avoid the pursuit. But like all night, he had little to see. This time, he ran out of space, too. Robinson tackled him for a safety, highlighting a stellar defensive effort in Philadelphia's 64-42 win Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
