West Catholic coach Brian Fluck struggled momentarily to gather his woebegone team Saturday after the Burrs fell, 34-19, to Southern Columbia in a PIAA Class AA semifinal at Northern Lehigh. Backsides plopped onto the turf, faces buried deep into hands, and tears, accompanied by sobs, flowed freely. After coaxing a few inconsolable team members back into the huddle, Fluck delivered his message. "I'm proud of this," the 17-year coach told his team. "I'm proud of you guys. You played your asses off. " The Burrs (10-6, 4-0)

Scott Armstrong has watched his Garnet Valley baseball team win 11 straight games entering its PIAA Class AA quarterfinal matchup with Southern Columbia today. The Jaguars have outscored their last three opponents, 29-8; they are 16-3 overall, and they haven't lost in more than a month. Still, Armstrong's optimism is guarded. He doesn't want this team to get too confident. His main goal is for his team to continue to play loose. "We're happy right now," Armstrong said. "We just want to take one step at a time.

Southern Columbia's 29-0 record entering the PIAA Class A state quarterfinals did not worry William Harriott, the boys' basketball coach at Sleighton School. He knew his team had other numbers - the size of his frontcourt players - in its favor. "That's been the difference for us in the playoffs," Harriott said. "Don't get me wrong. We have quickness, too. But the big thing is we have the horses inside. " Sleighton's horses - 6-foot-6 center Jonathan Green and 6-5 forward James Brown - were too much for Southern Columbia to handle in the Hawks' 73-63 victory Friday at Reading High.

Villa Joseph Marie was so dominant in yesterday's PIAA Class AA girls' soccer semifinal that when the beaten-down Tigers of Southern Columbia scored one of their rare goals, they didn't even bother to celebrate. "I think our reputation may have preceded us," Jems coach John McOwen said after his team moved into the state finals for the third time in the last six years with an 8-2 romp over the District 4 champions. The Jems will play the winner of yesterday's game between Sewickly Academy and Charleroi at 1 p.m. Friday at HersheyPark Stadium.

Scott Armstrong, Garnet Valley's head coach, called it a fun ride, just about the best ride a Jaguars baseball team had ever taken. And yesterday at Balliet Stadium, though that ride ended in a 9-5 loss to Southern Columbia in the PIAA Class AA state quarterfinals, the Jaguars made it fun to the final pitch, fighting back against the District 4 champion. The Tigers (23-2) advance to the Eastern finals, scheduled for Monday. The Jaguars (17-4) must hand in their uniforms, but can be consoled with a good season that produced a Southern Chester County League title and the school's first District 1 championship.

Jenkintown knew that Friday would be a very long day, with a three-hour bus ride to Catawissa to play Southern Columbia, a team that has played in the last three state Class A championship games. And once the Drakes, the Class A champions of District 1, failed to score on their first possession of the interdistrict playoff game, it opened the gates for Southern Columbia's 41-19 victory. The Tigers (10-1) held a 6-0 lead after the first series, and then Jenkintown (7-4) began an answering drive of its own. The Drakes moved to the Southern Columbia 20, but a 37-yard field goal by Ian Throne was nullified by a penalty, ending the drive.

Bristol's chances for an upset of Southern Columbia in Saturday night's District 4 Class A semifinal football playoff ended like too many Warriors drives this season - with turnovers. The Warriors' long trip to Catawissa, Pa., ended with a 48-14 defeat in a game that had been rescheduled from Friday to Saturday because of threatening weather. "If anything, not playing Friday hurt us," said Bristol coach George Gatto. "I think we had peaked emotionally, but we were ready to play.

Too many little mistakes added up to Christopher Dock's 5-4 loss to Southern Columbia in a PIAA Class A state baseball quarterfinal yesterday at Sam Balliet Stadium. Dock's best player dropped a fly ball in center field. The shortstop missed a tag on an attempted steal at second base, when the throw had the runner out by three feet. A runner ran through a coach's stop sign at third and was thrown out at home with the score tied, 4-4. And, finally, the catcher dropped a third strike, with a runner on second base taking third on the throw to first.

Changing starting lineups in the middle of the state tournament is rare. But then Darnell Featherstone, the guard inserted into the Sleighton School lineup during the playoffs, is a rare player. "He doesn't get the recognition of some of our players," coach William Harriott said. "He doesn't do much talking. He just plays. " Featherstone's play Friday at Reading High was a key factor in the Hawks' 73-63 victory over previously unbeaten Southern Columbia in the Class A quarterfinals.

HERSHEY, Pa. - A tearful Rodney Ross walked slowly to the stands and embraced his mother, Nadine, after he and his Mastery North teammates received their second-place medals. "When the game ended, after the final bell, reality sank in," the senior guard said. "I've been here for four years. It's hard knowing it's over. " The Pumas stayed close in the first half, but unraveled with eight third-quarter turnovers and bowed to District 7's Aliquippa, 68-49, Saturday afternoon in the PIAA Class 2A boys' basketball final at the Giant Center.

No one could believe what just happened. The referees stared at each other and shrugged, not knowing whether they should raise their arms and motion "touchdown. " The Jeannette High coaches didn't know how to react, either. They were waiting for the referees to signal something. Terrelle Pryor was nonchalant as he rose to his feet 3 yards into the end zone, as if what he did was routine. What Pryor did was leap clear over a defensive back to score a touchdown. That was back when the 6-6, 225-pound senior quarterback was a sophomore.

Tiger Woods holed two long birdie putts on consecutive holes on his way to a 4-under-par 68 that turned a four-shot deficit into a one-shot lead over Henrik Stenson at the Target World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif. "Two lucky breaks," said Woods, who was at 8-under 136 going into the weekend of the final tournament of the year. Stenson had four birdies and one good hop that set up an eagle, but two holes dropped him to a 71 that left him at 7-under. U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy (70)

They may not speak of it, but surely they remember it. And the memories should stir reflection tonight when Bristol aims to win its first playoff game in school history. The Warriors' PIAA District 1/11 Class A subregional first-round playoff match with St. Pius X-Roseto isn't about the tragic automobile accident that impacted the team a year ago. It's about the hard work and dedication from this year's Bristol players. "I think early on it had an effect on us," said coach George Gatto, "but to some degree we've moved on. Obviously, we'll never forget.
