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.

Hand-eye coordination, lightning-fast reflexes, and knowledge of angles certainly help, but the key to making saves for St. Joseph's Prep goaltender Mike Marchese comes down to something else entirely. "Having a couple screws loose in the head," Marchese said after his six fourth-quarter saves helped the Hawks beat Bishop Shanahan, 9-7, in the first round of the PIAA lacrosse playoffs Wednesday night at Plymouth Whitemarsh. The Prep, which last made the PIAA playoffs in 2011, will play Manheim Township on Saturday in the quarterfinals.

When the Radnor boys' lacrosse team took the field Saturday at Harriton the Raiders didn't look to get redemption. They looked toward taking the next step. In their PIAA District 1 quarterfinal match against No. 3 Bishop Shanahan , the sixth-seeded Raiders did just that, advancing with a 9-4 win and earning a spot in the state playoffs. Last season, the story was different, as the Eagles knocked off Radnor, 10-8, in double-overtime of the quarterfinals. "We really didn't talk much about last year," Radnor coach John Begier said.

There was a time when Alyssa Manley may have tentatively approached a loose ball, because she might have made a mistake after scooping it in her stick. The sophomore attacker might be a bonafide offensive weapon for Bishop Shanahan now, but freshman fears held her back at times last season. "Playing against people that are older than you is intimidating," Manley said. "But you just have to get it in your head that they're no better than you. We're all literally playing against people our own age. You just have to get that in your head, and once I did, I just stepped up. I think that's what was making me nervous and intimidating me. " However, not even the final seconds of a rain-soaked, cuticle-chewer against visiting Strath Haven could scare her. The sophomore gave Shanahan a 10-9 nonleague victory Saturday afternoon with a dramatic, game-winning goal with just 11.8 seconds left in regulation.

Whenever Devon Adams steps onto the basketball court, she thinks she should dominate. It is that simple. At 6-foot-3, the freshman center for Bishop Shanahan is not being cocky. It is just what she expects from herself. "I just really feel like every time I go out there I have to dominate," Adams said after Shanahan's 42-34 win at Downingtown West. "It doesn't matter how old I am. " In just her 11th varsity basketball game, Adams is a matchup problem for virtually any team.

Each season, Bishop Shanahan, as a Class AAA football program, faces a largely uphill battle while competing against six AAAA members in the Ches-Mont League National Conference. "You know every single game is going to be tough," senior tight end and middle linebacker Cody Smith said. "Even though we're usually the underdog, it's important that we have confidence and believe in ourselves. That's the only way to approach it. " In Week 8, Smith and the undersized Eagles defied the odds with a 17-10 upset of visiting Downingtown East at Jack Mancini Field.

Downingtown West sophomore Michael Riddick cruised along the left sideline and eased into the end zone. It was just 81 seconds into the team's 46-21 romp at Bishop Shanahan. The Whippets were just getting started. West scored three touchdowns in the first nine minutes Saturday afternoon and entered halftime with a 27-point lead. The team responded to last week's stunning loss at Great Valley with a near-perfect first half. The Whippets (5-2 overall, 2-1 Ches-Mont League National)

West Chester Henderson struck for back-to-back touchdowns in the first quarter, including the eventual game-winning score, in a 21-7 victory Friday night over visiting Bishop Shanahan in a Ches-Mont National matchup. Henderson, The Inquirer's 10th-ranked team in Southeastern Pennsylvania, took the lead on Matt Ginacci's 22-yard touchdown. The Warriors then got a stop, and Noah Richard returned a punt 65 yards for a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Tre Green, who entered the game as the area's seventh-leading rusher, ran for 127 yards and added insurance with a touchdown in the third quarter to make the score 21-7.

Doug Costin grabbed the tail of the Germantown Academy quarterback's jersey, spun him, and drove him to the turf. Bishop Shanahan's star defensive lineman flexed his arms and stomped his feet as the clock expired on the visiting Eagles' 14-6, season-opening win. Costin seemed to be involved in every play Saturday afternoon, making it fitting that his sack came on the final one of the nonleague game. "It felt great getting that tackle," he said. "I've always dreamed about it. But I can't think of it as myself.

Avon Grove broke its huddle with a little less than a minute left in the first half of Tuesday night's District 1 boys' lacrosse semifinal against Springfield (Delco). Red Devils coach Eric Jackson had told his players that they needed a goal before halftime of their 8-5 win at West Chester Henderson. A two-goal advantage, he said, would give them needed momentum. The quick offensive set failed to create a clear chance. Senior attackman Tanner Peck charged from the right side, but did not have an angle to shoot on. Springfield's righthanded goalie, James Spence, was hugging the post.

Trailing by as many as 10 points in the second half, Downingtown West came back and defeated Bishop Shanahan at home, 55-49, in double overtime Saturday in a Ches-Mont National girls' basketball game. Free throws played a key role in the two overtime periods. Kerri Caruso sank one for Downingtown West with six seconds left in the first overtime to tie it, and the Whippets made 5 of 6 in the second OT to seal the win. Maddie Dew led the Whippets with a game-high 17 points and added four steals.
