Aaron Thomas has done the pyramids and the Sphinx. He has ridden a boat on the Nile. He has stayed at swanky hotels in Alexandria. Just don't remind him of the cuisine the Downingtown junior had to stomach in two trips to Egypt this summer with the United States' under-17 national soccer team. "The food was horrible," said Thomas with a recollection of queasiness. "We ate the same thing over and over again: rice and chicken. And the chicken was probably camel meat or llama meat, we didn't even know.

Tom Honeyman has only Tom Paton to blame for the fact that Honeyman no longer scores goals for Frankford High's soccer team as often as lovers throw coins into fountains. Tom Paton is Tom Honeyman's grandfather, and, yes, we know what you're thinking - how in the world can a kid's grandfather contribute to cutting his goal production? By making a suggestion to his grandson's coach. Though Honeyman scored 39 goals in two years as a striker, first-year coach Bill Snyder listened to the 76-year-old Paton, whom he affectionately calls his "assistant," and switched Honeyman to trailer forward after the first three games this season.

Pennridge girls' soccer coach Jorge Rodriguez spent time Friday working with junior midfielder Megan Shenk on her corner kicks, in preparation for the Rams' PIAA Class AAA quarterfinal playoff game against Strath Haven. "Coach wanted me to redo my corner kicks. I was putting them either too close to the goal or too far out. He wanted me to put it over the goalie's head," Shenk explained after her goal on a corner kick lifted the Rams to a 1-0 victory over the Panthers on Saturday at Souderton.

On Friday, third-seeded Haddonfield (16-3) plays host to No. 6 seed Woodstown in a South Jersey Group 2 girls' soccer quarterfinal that is bound to have a championship feel. The 2 p.m. game will be played at Haddonfield's Scout Field. This will be the first playoff game for both teams, which earned first-round byes. One reason this should feel like more than a quarterfinal game is that it is a rematch of last year's South Jersey Group 2 final that Haddonfield won, 3-2. The Bulldogs went on to win the Group 2 state championship.
