Winning at the Montgomery County Kennel Club's all-terrier dog show is to a terrier fancier more important than a triumph in any other American canine event. The club's 55th terrier competition will be held Oct. 7 on the Ambler campus of Temple University, Butler Pike and Meetinghouse Road. Show chairman M. Josephine Deubler said this year's entries should equal or surpass 1989's total of 2,312. Notable specimens are expected among Airedales, miniature schnauzers, wire- haired and smooth fox terriers, and Irish, Welsh, soft-coated wheaten, Bedlington, cairn, Dandie Dinmont, Scottish, Sealyham, Kerry blue, West Highland white and Lakeland terriers.

The growth process for any young team includes an early test of resilience, and St. Joseph's had one last night against Boston University. Would the Hawks still be dragging their chins on the floor after Saturday's charity act at Penn State, where they squandered an eight-point lead with 1 minute, 4 seconds left and lost in a controversial finish? Or would they prove to have short memories? Although St. Joe's made plenty of mistakes in its 55-39 win over the Terriers at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse, there were no hangdog looks as they used the sticky defense of freshman Garrett Williamson and the return of another freshman, Darrin Govens, from injury to break open a tight game in the second half.

The Modena Borough Council, concerned about the aggressiveness of pit bull terriers, has decided to investigate ways of banning the dogs. Councilman James Hawkins expressed fear last week of pit bulls and cited what he said were several recent incidents to back up his concerns. "Pit bulls just attack without provocation," Hawkins said at Monday's meeting. "They even attack their owners, and it scares the tar out of me because my kids could go near one and get attacked.

Drexel let Boston University sneak onto the porch, but the Dragons slammed the door shut when the Terriers tried to slip into the house. Pressing border-to-border and uncorking a string of rainbow threes, BU shredded Drexel's 14-point halftime lead to tatters last night. A comfortable, double-digit Dragons advantage unraveled to a 49-49 tie with seven minutes to play, and the Case Gymnasium was rocking. Then Drexel turned up its game and turned down the noise. The Dragons regained their poise and rhythm and outscored BU, 20-8, in the final seven minutes for a 69-57 America East victory.

Delaware Valley Regional traveled from Frenchtown, N. J., to Morrisville on Friday night with 45 football players, a marching band, cheerleaders, families and friends, altogether far outnumbering the meager support group for the home team. And the visitors had a great time, too, even though they had to sit through a constant rain in the second half. On the field, the Terriers destroyed Morrisville, 38-0, outgaining the hosts by 279 yards on offense. "We knew very little about this team," Bulldogs coach Ron Dilks conceded after his team's record fell to 1-1. "They hadn't played a game, and we weren't as sharp mentally as we should have been.

When he was playing at St. Francis in New York, Jeff Myers usually had the ball in his hands, but he didn't control the outcome of games. "I didn't have a situation like this, where it could all fall down on me to do something," Myers said. Last night, with the ball and the game squarely in his hands, the redshirted sophomore transfer took control. His 14 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists drove top-seeded Drexel to the championship game of the North Atlantic Conference tournament for the fourth straight year.

One of the trademarks of coach Bill Herrion's Drexel basketball teams over the last several years has been their ability to win games even when - on paper - they don't appear to be playing well. In what has become a familiar theme this season, the Dragons shot horribly from the field yesterday, yet managed to put an effective wall around every Boston University player except 6-foot-5 sophomore Tunji Awojobi, and coasted to a 63-51 victory at Case Gym. Drexel shot 37.7 percent from the floor, its third-worst shooting effort of the season.

There are 30 of them - larger-than-life terriers in paint-splashed coats, their heads cocked quizzically to the left, sitting pretty along Moorestown avenues. Public art projects like these have been around since 1998, when a colorful cow parade hit Zurich. Other communities followed with pigs and elephants. But these fiberglass Nipper dogs, 5-foot-tall replicas of the famous Victor Talking Machine Co. trademark, have unleashed quite a rage. To start, the Nippers helped fetch Moorestown a recent declaration by Money magazine that it is the best place to live in America.

What started as a laugher for the Drexel basketball team yesterday ended as a hair-pulling, season-ending loss that's likely to torment the Dragons for months to come. Facing Boston University in an America East semifinal contest at the University of Delaware's Carpenter Center, Drexel squandered an 18-point halftime lead before dropping a 53-51 decision before 4,047 astonished fans. The defeat left the Dragons with a 13-15 record, the most losses in coach Bill Herrion's seven seasons.
