St. Joseph's Prep coach Gil Brooks likes to spend autumn Sundays kicking back with his assistant coaches and taking in some enjoyable films. And not just his own team's cinematic successes. In the wake of the Prep's latest triumph, a 38-0 victory yesterday over Father Judge, Brooks was looking forward to viewing replays of one team he likes to watch - that same Judge team. "I think they're one of the most well-coached teams we face," Brooks said. "They always come up with wrinkles and schemes.

Restoration opens as a plush, lusty romp and closes as a sober mortality tale. The film, set in the colorful 1660s following the gray decade of Oliver Cromwell's Commonwealth, begins shortly after King Charles II restores the Stuarts to England's throne. Palace sequences are aswirl with wine-colored doublets and golden petticoats - wine and gold, of course, being the currencies that flow most freely at Charles' court. That is, until the Plague comes. Don't think for an instant, though, that this movie, based on Rose Tremain's 1989 novel, is really about how the Great Plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of London in 1666 brought the debaucheries and excesses of King Charles' court to an abrupt halt, fostering a new era of moderation.

When Donna Solvibile took over the Archbishop Ryan softball program this season, the former Cardinal Dougherty junior varsity coach knew that she was inheriting a talented squad and a winning tradition. And although any first-year coach would be foolish to predict instant success, Solvibile went out on a limb somewhat by forecasting a playoff berth for the Ragdolls. "Ryan has always been solid defensively and has gotten consistent pitching," Solvibile said as she looked forward to the season.

ONE LANCASTER County man likes pork a little too much. You could say that he loves it. Larry William Henry, 65, was charged late last month with criminal trespass, defiant trespass, indecent exposure and related offenses after he was caught in his birthday suit hamming it up with a bunch of pigs, police in Manor Township told the Daily News on Tuesday. He was released after posting bail. Henry allegedly broke into a hog barn on Coffee Street in Millersville about 10:18 p.m. June 26, police said.

For most of the first half, it seemed as if Steve Logan were playing Boston University by himself. What's remarkable is that he was winning. Logan put on a dazzling display of shooting and playmaking while outscoring Boston U. by himself until well into the second half, leading top-seeded Cincinnati to an oh-so-easy 90-52 romp last night in a first-round West Regional game. It was a typical No. 1 vs. No. 16 mismatch, with the only question being whether Logan would score more points than the Terriers (22-10)

The silly Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is playing a long Philadelphia Shakespeare Festival run, and if you like sketch comedy with lots of groaners, frantic stage action, and an occasional bull's-eye, this is your tankard of ale. The festival is banking on the production to provide a laff-riot of cash; the producing company has cut a final show this season while it tries to regroup and recoup from a deficit. Complete Works may be the short-term answer. It defines the word light when applied to the stage, and if there were such a thing as low jinks, it would define that, too. Which is not to say that Complete Works is not funny.

He sank the free throw, turned and said goodbye to his fans with a simple wave. Hakim Warrick finished a memorable two-year career at Friends' Central with 5 minutes, 28 seconds remaining in last night's Friends Schools League boys' basketball championship at Alumni Gymnasium at Beaver Collge. The 6-foot-8 Warrick had plenty to do with the 73-47 victory. And not just in this game, although he scored a game-high 23 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and blocked eight shots. He shot 8 for 11 from the field, including 2 of 3 from three-point range.

I will not tell you who in the Philadelphia Theatre Company's Murder for Two done it. But I will tell you it was one of two men onstage. Of course, considering this show follows in the tradition of whiplash character-change successes such as The 39 Steps and The Mystery of Irma Vep , that's not revealing much. Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair's madcap musical comedy features Ian Lowe as unassuming sleuth Marcus Moscowicz (Brandon Lambert steps into the role beginning June 23)

James F. Kenney, a 23-year veteran of City Council and true son of South Philadelphia, rolled to an easy victory Tuesday in the Democratic mayoral primary, making him the odds-on favorite to become Philadelphia's next chief executive. Backed by an impressive coalition of organized labor, progressive groups, and key African American political leaders, Kenney, 56, defeated former District Attorney Lynne M. Abraham, former Common Pleas Judge Nelson A. Diaz, former PGW executive Doug Oliver, former State Sen. T. Milton Street, and the candidate once seen as the front-runner - State Sen.

MIAMI - The 76ers have to reclaim their identity. Before the trade deadline, they were a solid defensive squad that gave teams fits regardless of the outcome. These days, the Sixers are a three-point-taking and seldom-defensive-stop-making squad. Their latest example was Monday's 119-108 loss to the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena. "That's not who we are," coach Brett Brown said. "That's not even close to who we are. You have a luxury of shooters coming in and the punishment of having to regroup and reclaim identity, which has been defense.

A "powerful wave. " "Democrats got drubbed. " "Democalypse 2014. " OK, that last one comes from The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. But humor aside, postelection reports reflect a widespread notion: Republicans took Democrats by surprise Tuesday as they claimed control of the Senate, built their largest House majority since Herbert Hoover's presidency, and racked up wins in statehouse after statehouse. Was it really an earthshaking shock? It shouldn't have been, at least to anyone paying attention to a handful of nerdy prognosticators who, in recent years, have transformed the way Americans read and interpret preelection polls.
