Coatesville already was at the top of District 1's Class AAAA playoff ratings. The coaches had told the players over and over again that they had the stuff to live up to the rating and stand up to their own history. So yesterday, after a season of occasional slips and slides but never enough to get knocked off course, it was time for the Red Raiders to show they believed in themselves. "Last year, we were the same team, pretty much," senior Will Keylor said. "We just had to learn how to win. " Almost before they had a chance to think otherwise, the Red Raiders, ranked third in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, scored three first-quarter touchdowns en route to a 28-7 win over West Chester Henderson.

Major Culclasure of Coatesville led his troops on an overwhelming frontal assault on Chester on Saturday that resulted in a 21-7 Red Raiders victory in the opening game of the season for both teams. During the preseason, Coatesville coach Rich Como insisted that his offense would be based on ball control, with fullback Culclasure running behind an experienced and tough offensive line. Como was right. The visiting Red Raiders bulled their way to 296 yards and 19 first downs, all on the ground, led by Culclasure's 134 yards on 20 carries and two touchdowns.

While Coatesville barely missed at states, it still won the illustrious Steel City Invitational. And the Chest-Mont League, District 1 Class AAAA/AAA, and Abington Invitational. The Red Raiders are The Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania boys' cross-country team of the year. Coatesville, directed by head coach Keith Andrew and assistant coach Dave Lapp, improved almost every week during the season. At states last month in Hershey, the Red Raiders scored 100 points, just five points shy of champion Cedar Cliff.

An experienced Central Dauphin football team beat a young Coatesville squad, 37-0, last year. Rams coach George Chaump admits concern about a different outcome tonight when the two teams meet at 7 at Coatesville. "We've lost a lot," Chaump said, comparing this year's squad to his 1999 team that made it to the finals of the District 3 Class AAAA playoffs before losing. "We've got five sophomores starting and some of them go both ways. "Coatesville was pretty much a junior team last season.

After losing to Coatesville twice during the Ches-Mont season, West Chester East coach Dan Rudloff knew what to expect on Saturday at Downingtown in the quarterfinal of the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA tournament. "There's a reason they are the No. 1 seed," Rudloff said. "They have more weapons than we do, more athletes, and are a better team. " The Red Raiders lived up to their billing as they dispatched the ninth- seeded Vikings, 73-38. Coatesville (22-3) will play Sun Valley in the semifinals Tuesday at a site and time to be determined.

Coatesville basketball coach Gerry Quedenfeld spent about 10 minutes after Saturday night's game punching lockers and yelling at the top of his voice. That's about 9 minutes and 19 seconds longer than it took Coatesville to turn what looked like a victory into a stunning 53-52 loss to undefeated Woodrow Wilson of West Lawn at the Bulldogs' packed gym. The story of this tightly played game, which Wilson led only at the very beginning and the very end, was told in a 41-second span with 1:39 left in the game.

If there has been one thorn in the side of the Paulsboro wrestling team in recent years, Absegami is it. In 1997, the Braves halted Paulsboro's 55-match winning streak with a 42-18 decision. Last season, they were the only team between the Red Raiders and their 28th undefeated campaign, scoring a thrilling 34-30 victory. The two South Jersey powerhouses will meet again at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow at Absegami. Paulsboro enters this match as the favorite, which was not the case in the last two seasons.

Facing an unbeaten powerhouse with a club still searching for its first victory, Radnor coach Bob Martin figured his team would have had to pull off a small miracle to beat Ridley in their Central League clash Saturday. But from Ridley's first offensive play of the game - a 65-yard touchdown run by halfback Mike Busza - Martin knew he would be looking at a long day on the sidelines. That run was only the start of a romp, as the visiting Green Raiders coasted to a 48-3 victory over the Red Raiders.

Mike Dominick sat in his office in the Coatesville locker room savoring his team's 20-13 victory over Downingtown on Saturday. Outside, his muddy players were still celebrating, dancing and hugging as they enjoyed their second consecutive Ches-Mont championship and first trip to the state playoffs. As players walked by the big glass partition separating the office from the rest of the locker room, they knocked and waved to their coach, who returned their greeting with a big smile.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - Craig Mensinger called it "mystifying. " His Ocean City team was "super confident" entering the Group 3 state championship game Saturday against Northern Highlands. The Red Raiders had won 14 of 15. They had ace Sean Mooney on the mound. They were playing a team with 10 losses. They were on the brink of the first state title in the history of the program. But when Mooney allowed his first two earned runs of the season in the first inning, thanks to a bloop, an opposite-field double, and a windblown double, the Red Raiders never recovered.

The Radnor girls' lacrosse season may be on the cusp of a grand finale, but the Red Raiders were on the brink of disappointment back in late April. The reason for the turnaround: trust falls, blindfolds, and, perhaps, fate. Now, Radnor (20-6) will face season-long favorite Conestoga in the PIAA girls' lacrosse state championship game at West Chester East on Saturday at 10 a.m. The game was originally scheduled for noon but moved up because of possible afternoon thunderstorms. After poor communication and even worse execution marred a disappointing home loss to Springfield (Delco)

Highland coach D.J. Gore says the "numbers don't lie" when it comes to Ocean City senior Sean Mooney. So why doesn't anybody believe them? "Unbelievable," Ocean City senior outfielder Dom Fiorentino said of his teammate's pitching statistics. "Unbelievable," echoed veteran coach Craig Mensinger about Mooney's remarkable numbers. Even Mooney seems a little dubious about his own accomplishments. "No [earned] runs? That's a little hard to believe," Mooney said. "But it feels great.

In the top of the sixth inning, Josh Arnold ripped a three-run home run to right field, giving host Ocean City a 6-5 lead, which held up in a win over St. Augustine in the Cape-Atlantic League regular-season finale on Thursday. With the victory, the Red Raiders claimed the Cape-Atlantic League American Conference title. Nick Artymowicz, who hit a double, pitched the first five innings for Ocean City before being relieved by Colton Ulmer, who earned the win by tossing 12/3 innings with two strikeouts.

Matthew Webster comes from exceptional lacrosse stock, but the La Salle High senior defenseman hasn't always believed in his own abilities on the field. Saturday afternoon against visiting Radnor, however, Webster's defensive prowess helped limit one of the nation's top talents and secure a 6-1 victory for the Explorers. The defending PIAA champion Red Raiders were led by senior Jack Wilson, a University of Maryland recruit, who netted the game-winning goal in overtime last season to give Radnor its first state title.

After playing understudy for the last two seasons, the time is now for Radnor junior goaltender Tucker Ballbach. Last year, senior goalie Alex Andersen, a 6-foot-2, 270-pounder now playing football at Penn, led the Red Raiders to their first PIAA lacrosse championship. This year, however, the 5-9, 160-pound Ballbach stands between the pipes. And in Tuesday's 9-3 victory over visiting West Chester East, Ballbach stood tall, stopping 11 shots and seizing an opportunity he's long awaited.

Winslow Township's run to Sunday's state final was remarkable for multiple reasons. For one thing, the Eagles were 11-14 when the playoffs started. They had lost their last three games of the regular season. For another, the Eagles were in uncharted territory. The program never won a sectional title before last season and never made the state championship game before this season. But Coach Norm Ingram thinks the most notable thing about Winslow Township this season was the nucleus of the squad: a group of seniors who had been together since they were in fourth grade.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - For the second year in a row, Paulsboro was in the state championship game against University. Sadly for the Red Raiders, the outcome was not the same as last season as the defending champions fell to the Phoenix, 63-45, in the NJSIAA Group 1 final at Rutgers on Sunday. It was a close game through the first quarter, but the last 24 minutes belonged to University. Paulsboro struggled with fighting through the Phoenix defense, committing turnover after turnover against its press defense.
