The Conestoga doubles team of Scott Allen and Todd Jacobs did not lose in 162 games when Jacobs was serving in the Central League and PIAA District 1 boys' doubles championships. That phenomenal streak came to an end in the finals of the district championships on Saturday. Jacobs and Allen were leading Unionville's Jeff Rangan and Derek Schwandt, 5-4, in a deciding third set when Jacobs lost serve. Spurred by the break, Rangan and Schwandt forced a tiebreaker. But the top-seeded Pioneers pair, their run to the title in jeopardy, rallied in the tiebreaker and went on to a 3-6, 6-1, 7-6 (7-3)

Charlotte (42-38) holds a 3-1 advantage over the Magic in their season series. The Sixers would win a tiebreaker against the Hornets. The Magic would win a tiebreaker against the Sixers.

JESSE HART'S dreams of making the U.S. Olympic boxing team have likely ended. Hart, from Philadelphia, lost to Terrell Gausha, of Cleveland, on the second tiebreaker in a sloppy, holding-filled middleweight championship bout Saturday at the USA Boxing National Championships in Fort Carson, Colo.

The first tiebreaker - total punch count - was tied at 34. The second tiebreaker is judges' poll, with three of the five saying Gausha won the bout and the other two selecting Hart.

The Wings will have a chance to virtually wrap up a berth in the Major Indoor Lacrosse League championship game when they close out the regular season against the Washington Wave tonight. Game time at the Spectrum is 8 p.m. The Wings, who are coming off a 16-11 road loss to the Detroit Turbos last Saturday, are in second place, with a 5-2 record. That leaves them just behind the 5-1, defending champion New York Saints, and just ahead of the 4-2 Turbos. The top two finishers qualify for the championship game, which will be hosted by the team with the better record.

NEWARK, N.J. - A state appellate court has ruled that Newark Mayor Cory Booker was not authorized to cast a vote last year for a City Council replacement candidate. His move had sparked a fracas in the council chamber. The opinion handed down Friday affirmed a lower-court ruling that Booker shouldn't have voted. During its Nov. 20 meeting, the council was deciding who should replace Councilman Donald Payne Jr., who resigned after being elected to Congress. The candidates were Shanique Davis Speight, whom Booker preferred, and John Sharpe James.

As regulation came to an end, the score read 1-1, and for the second time in a matter of hours, Mastbaum's fate rested on penalty kicks. The Panthers' season ended, though, as Science Leadership won the penalties round, 4-2, to earn the final playoff spot in the Public League boys' soccer C division. Both goalkeepers stood out, with Matt Rinaldi making 13 saves for the Rockets and William Heard stopping 11 shots for Mastbaum. In a rare occurrence, four teams found themselves tied for second place at season's end, requiring the league to hold a playoff to determine the second seed.

John McEnroe turned back the clock for tennis fans Friday night with a vintage performance. Now, if only he could do that during the points themselves. Playing with the New York Sportimes during their 19-18 World TeamTennis victory in a super tiebreaker against the Freedoms at the Pavilion at Villanova, McEnroe argued with the umpire, slammed a ball into the net in frustration after a double fault, and once cocked his racket, preparing to chuck it after hitting a ball out of bounds.
