Although Neshaminy and Central Bucks South are no longer in the same conference of the Suburban One League - thanks to realignment - their coaches wanted to continue playing because of the usually competitive nature of their games. Yesterday, both teams left the field disappointed after battling to a 1-1 overtime tie at South. The C.B. South Titans (9-2-1) said they missed a big opportunity to knock the Redskins (11-0-1), The Inquirer's top team, from the ranks of the unbeaten.

Washington will have a new middle linebacker, and he again comes from an NFC East rival. The Redskins agreed to terms yesterday with New York Giants free agent Mike Barrow on what is believed to be a 6-year contract. The deal is expected to average nearly $3 million annually in its first three seasons, ESPN.com reported. He replaces former Eagle Jeremiah Trotter, who has been given permission to seek a trade and will be cut June 1 in a salary-cap move if he is not dealt by then.

Neshaminy coach Ray Sherno sat behind the Redskin bench from October to April, but the coach never did quite figure out his capricious squad. "This was a real funny team to be around," Sherno said. "I never knew what to expect from them from game to game. " Neshaminy entered its Director's Cup finals against Unionville on Tuesday, losing 6-0 just after coming off what may have been its best game of the season. The Redskins had been masterful in a 6-2 win over favored Archbishop Wood on March 20. However, the effort, and result, were not repeated against Unionville in the Class A finals at the Skatium in Havertown.

After Pennsbury came from behind to beat Neshaminy, 3-1, in the semifinals of the District 1 Class AAA softball playoffs, Redskins pitcher Tracy Sylvestre took heart in the fact that there was a possibility the teams would meet again in the PIAA state playoffs. "I know we have a chance to meet them again, and I'm determined to make sure we do," Sylvestre said after that game. Well, the Redskins will get that chance again today. Pennsbury and Neshaminy, Suburban One League and Lower Bucks County rivals, will tangle in the state semifinals at Ursinus College at 4 p.m. The Falcons are ranked No. 1 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer; Neshaminy is ranked third.

Naturally enough, when the parties and press conferences are over, when this glitterfest masquerading as a football game finally takes place, the focus will remain where it has been all week: on the blond quarterback with the big teeth. The Washington Redskins cannot win Super Bowl XXII without containing Denver quarterback John Elway. As the nonsense winds down and Sunday's game approaches, that has become the immutable truth. Whether it is with a running game that keeps Elway off the field, a controlled pass rush that keeps him in the pocket, or superior pass coverage that keeps his receivers under wraps, the Redskins have to come up with something.

Last year, the District 1 Class AAA semifinals produced a classic pitching duel, with Phoenixville's Steve Shoemaker matching Neshaminy's Steve Tenaglia nearly pitch-for-pitch. Both hurlers finished with 13 strikeouts. But Tenaglia got better fielding support, and Neshaminy advanced to the district final with a 3-1 win. Shoemaker graduated, and recently completed a fine spring as a freshman player the University of Alabama. Tenaglia, to Phoenixville's sorrow, is still pitching for the Redskins.

The Central Bucks West basketball team had anything but a holiday last week, playing four games in six days, and the Bucks may have felt some of the wear and tear in a lackluster 70-52 victory over host Neshaminy Tuesday night. The Bucks (5-1 league, 11-3 overall) entered the National Conference game as heavy favorites against the struggling Redskins (0-5, 1-11). But West had to recover from a 4-point deficit during the first period before rolling to the win. "We looked a little tired," said West coach Wayne Finkbeiner.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Tony Romo's ribs held up just fine. So did Dan Bailey's leg. Romo persevered through pain to lead enough deep drives to set up Bailey for six field goals, including a 40-yarder with 1:57 left to give the Cowboys an 18-16 victory over the Redskins last night. Dallas' Anthony Spencer chopped the ball from Washington's Rex Grossman with 28 seconds left, and linebacker Sean Lee recovered it, setting off a celebration inside Cowboys Stadium. Dallas coach Jason Garrett dropped to a knee and pumped his fist wildly at being 2-1 - guaranteeing no repeat of last year's miserable 1-7 start.

The unbeaten Neshaminy field hockey team has given up just one goal in racking up eight straight victories. There are many reasons for the Redskins' success, but one of the biggest is the goaltending of junior Cait Koczynski. Although Koczynski hasn't always been tested, because Neshaminy has dominated several of its games, she has been more than up to the task when necessary. In the Redskins' nonleague opener, she blanked Central Bucks South in a 1-0 overtime win. Koczynski, who earned a starting spot last season as a sophomore, also posted a shutout in a key 1-0 overtime win over Suburban One League National Conference rival Council Rock North.

Suburban One National powers Abington and Neshaminy met on a collision course Friday at Abington, and the host Ghosts survived with a gut-check 18-15 victory. Both teams entered the rare mid-afternoon game tied for fourth in the rankings of The Inquirer, and both teams played with an intensity and desire that showed that those rankings were well-deserved. The victory improved Abington to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in the SOL with wins over Pennridge (48-14) and Neshaminy. The loss dropped the Redskins to 3-1 overall, and gave them a 1-1 league mark that includes a win over Norristown (10-7)
