The Bishop Shanahan boys' basketball team knows that there is no such thing as an easy basketball game in the Southern Chester County League, and Tuesday's game with Unionville was a good example. It took three quarters, but the Eagles came out of their offensive funk and rallied to defeat the Indians, 48-42, to maintain possession of second place in the SCCL behind Oxford. The Eagles, who trailed for almost the entire game, outscored Unionville, 16-7, in the final quarter on some timely shooting by Doug Irwin and Tom Cogill.

At last summer's Keystone Games, Sarah Becker watched some of the better hitters from upstate spike the ball from the backcourt, 15 to 20 feet from the net. As Bishop Shanahan prepared for the current Southern Chester County League volleyball season, Becker lightheartedly suggested to coach Mary Ann Calhoun that she try some long-range hits for the Eagles. Calhoun agreed and on Thursday it paid off as Shanahan defeated host Kennett, 15-13, 8-15, 15-8, to go 4-0 in SCCL play. Kennett dropped to 2-1. In the course of the match, Becker spiked the ball from the backcourt 10 times.

Though Bishop Shanahan didn't expect to get to the top of the standings of the Inter-County Scholastic Hockey League in its first season, the Eagles were at least hoping to have some impact on the league. It hasn't worked out that way. The woes of coach Dave Brown's team continued last week. The Eagles were shut out, 6-0, by Lower Merion on Monday and lost, 8-1, to West Chester Henderson on Thursday. The losses put Shanahan at 0-13-1 and pretty much sealed its position in the cellar.

Although Bishop Shanahan was on the short end of an 11-2 outcome against Archbishop Carroll on Friday at the Wintersports Arena, Eagles coach Dave Brown was hardly displeased. Brown, you see, wasn't exactly expecting an upset over the Patriots, who improved to 6-1-2 and remained first in the Inter-County League. He was, instead, just hoping for a sustained effort from his players. And that is what he got. "We got our clocks cleaned," said Brown, whose team quickly fell behind by 5 goals.

The Bishop Shanahan ice hockey team hasn't won the Inter-County Class A hockey title, but the Eagles still have a lot to celebrate. Regardless of the outcome of their game with Strath Haven at 8:45 p.m. tomorrow at Ice Line, the Eagles (13-5-0) have earned a berth in the Flyers Cup - the first in the program's 11-year history. The Eagles have done it in impressive fashion, outscoring their opponents by 14-5 last week to advance to the championship game. "We're definitely peaking at the right time," Shanahan coach Mark Gonsalves said.

The Bishop Shanahan Eagles remained in first place in the Southern Chester County League by winning their lone league match of the week, a 15-9, 15-12 victory over the visiting Octorara Braves on Friday. The victory boosted Shanahan to 7-0 in the SCCL. Octorara fell to 3-4. Also Friday, Unionville (7-1) stayed in second place with a 15-13, 15-8 triumph over West Chester East (1-6). East led most of the first game before giving up the final 2 points. "We're starting to jell," coach Bridget Fischbein said of her Vikings, who, despite the loss, played well against Unionville.

The Bishop Shanahan girls' soccer team had picked up a couple of easy wins, and both the players and coach Dave Moffett were aching for a challenge. They got one against Haverford High on Friday and the results were encouraging. The young Eagles tied the Fords, 1-1. Shanahan is off to a good start at 4-1-1. The Eagles topped Marple Newtown 4-1 last Monday and routed Lower Merion on Wednesday, 7-0. "We were prepared for a difficult challenge against Lower Merion," Moffett said.

The Bishop Shanahan Eagles unleashed their fullcourt-pressure, run-and-gun style of play on the Southern Chester County League on Tuesday night when they traveled to Oxford in the league opener for both teams. "I don't think they were ready for it," Shanahan coach Vic Bruno said. "They got tired in the second quarter. " The Eagles took advantage and gradually pulled away for a 92-59 win. Shanahan is averaging 84 points a game this season. "We've worked real hard on conditioning and are ready to run all game," Bruno said.

The Bishop Shanahan boys' basketball team began last week with an unimpressive 1-6 overall record and all of the Southern Chester County League games still ahead. But in their first seven games, the Eagles generally played bigger and faster teams, and that experience has finally paid off. The Eagles captured their first two SCCL games last week against Octorara, 50-49, (7-3 overall, 1-1 league) on Wednesday and Avon Grove, 68-56, (3-8, 1-1) on Friday. The victories have put Shanahan (3-6 overall, 2-0 league)

By the time the second half of Tuesday's West Chester Henderson-Bishop Shanahan basketball game began, the only unanswered question was whether every Henderson player would score. And when Jason Tourville sank a pair of free throws with 3 minutes, 35 seconds to play, that question became moot. If there was any question about Henderson's looking ahead to tonight's key game at West Chester East, it was quickly answered as the Warriors exploded for a 31-point second quarter and dominated the Eagles in the nonleague tune- up, 77-47.

Since it plays against talent-heavy and larger-enrollment schools in the Ches-Mont League National Division, it's essential that Bishop Shanahan sharpen its skills in the early going. Though they faced undermanned George Washington, the visiting Eagles generated some positive vibes with a 56-13 romp in their season opener Saturday afternoon at Mickey Young Memorial Stadium. Shanahan built a 28-0 advantage in the opening 16 minutes, with Brendan Dearing making a pair of touchdown catches, and substituted freely the rest of the way. "Every kid wants to play a lot in the first game, but you have to understand the situation," Dearing said.

It all started at a swimming meet in December. When freshman Devon Miller was still at Kennett, she saw a friend of hers, Angela King, at the meet. The two became friends in preschool and went to Kennett Middle School together but had not seen each other in a few years. That's when King told Miller about Bishop Shanahan. Within a month, Miller shadowed a freshman at the school and made the decision to transfer. "I love it here," the 15-year old pitcher for the softball team said.

Sometimes all it takes is a look. Quality defense helps, too. La Salle High had it all working Wednesday in a boys' lacrosse thriller against Bishop Shanahan. The PIAA first-round playoff game at Plymouth Whitemarsh needed extra time to decide a winner. Fortunately for the Catholic League champion Explorers, Brett Baskin netted the game-winner with 2 minutes, 29 seconds left in overtime to give La Salle an 8-7 victory. The goal was set up by a defensive deflection by senior long-pole Matt Webster, which allowed fellow senior Jared Walls to scoop the loose ball, find Baskin, and head for glory.

With Bishop Shanahan staging a furious comeback and Avon Grove hemorrhaging what once seemed an insurmountable lead, Avon Grove senior Beau Kush had control on his mind and the ball in his stick. Kush, an attacker headed to North Carolina next year, recaptured momentum for the Red Devils with a righthanded rip from about 10 yards out early in the fourth quarter, and sparked Avon Grove to a 9-5 Ches-Mont League triumph in lacrosse. "As a senior, you want to take control of the game," Kush said.

"I'm OK," Ciara Forde said to her coach, Fran Burbidge, with just 2 minutes, 36 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. She nodded along in a reassuring manner as she said it, giving no indication that she would be anything but fine out on the basketball court. It was good news for the Bishop Shanahan senior, who had subbed out of the game with more than five minutes left against rival Downingtown East, suffering from leg cramps. Her return was even better news for the Eagles. Forde's 19 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 steals carried Bishop Shanahan to a 46-42 overtime win over the visiting Cougars in a dramatic Ches-Mont League game that saw Forde trade jabs with East's Paige Warfel.

Bishop Shanahan came a long way Tuesday to claim a spot in the District 1 Class AA soccer final. And not just because the Eagles had to drive all the way up to Souderton. Jack Ziegler scored in the first half and third-seeded Shanhan held on for a 1-0 semifinal win over No. 2 Lower Moreland. It completed a massive turnaround for the Eagles, who won just one game in 2013. The Eagles will face Pottsgrove in the final, Thursday night at 7. They'll travel even farther this time, to Council Rock North.

Jake McCain was slowed in the early going of the nonleague contest Saturday afternoon against Bishop Shanahan with a slight case of dehydration. "The heat got to me a little bit and then I drank too much water on the sideline," the senior running back and middle linebacker said. Thankfully for Penn Charter, McCain was his usual bullish self down the stretch. He helped the injury- and illness-depleted Quakers put together a 19-play, 88-yard drive over the final 11 minutes of the game to run down the clock and turn back the Eagles, 19-12, in their first game at the school's new turf field.
