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.

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)

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.

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.
