THE WINGS plan to relocate out of Philadelphia, the team announced on its website yesterday. In a news release on the site, the Wings, who won six league championships, said they are in discussions with a "new strategic partner" to move to an as-yet undisclosed location, pending approval by the National Lacrosse League Board of Governers. "My love for the Wings and my connection with the city has made this move all the more difficult," owner/president Michael French said in the release.

When the NHL holds its All-Star Game, body checks become an endangered species. Ditto those so-called hard fouls at the NBA All-Star tilt. Or serious blocking and tackling, when the NFL's best get together in Honolulu each February. Even major league baseball frowns upon such staples as brushback pitches or body-block takeout slides in its midsummer classic. So, the question is, how does the Major Indoor Lacrosse League put on an All-Star showcase without at least some physical shenanigans?

The memory of last season makes them whip their sticks a bit faster, smack the wrists of their opponents more wildly, charge the ball, the net, the win a little more aggressively. That's what a letdown does in lacrosse. It makes you want that diamond-studded championship ring that much more. The Philadelphia Wings (2-0) play their Major Indoor Lacrosse League home opener at 8 tonight, facing the Baltimore Thunder at the CoreStates Center. The Wings are coming off a 9-3 season in which they reached the league's championship round, only to lose to Buffalo.

Gary Gait remembers well the night the New York Saints held him scoreless. It was in New York, Feb. 26, 1994. It was the only time in his six-year Major Indoor Lacrosse League career when the Wings forward went without scoring a point. "I'm trying to forget about it," Gait said, laughing. "I looked at it as a learning experience. " Don't expect it to happen again, when the Wings (1-1) play host to the Saints (1-1) in the CoreStates Spectrum tomorrow at 8 p.m. "That," Wings goalie Dallas Eliuk said, "was an aberration.

Playing up the angle, "Gary Gait meets Paul Gait in the Battle of the Canadian Twins who are Living Lacrosse," is inaccurate. Always has been. So says Paul, whose Rochester Knighthawks host the Wings tomorrow at 8 p.m. It's never been about beating each other. Heck, it's been about avoiding each other, ever since Paul went to Rochester after helping the Wings win the 1994 MILL title. "We made an agreement," said Paul. "We wouldn't try to play each other. " They don't really need the agreement, said Paul.

The Wings cruised to a nice 8-2 record in the Major Indoor Lacrosse League this season. They won for the first time at archrival Buffalo in their season finale. So what, they say. When you've won the last two MILL titles, been in the final game the last five years, and won four titles overall, nothing matters except winning it all, every year. "It may sound arrogant," Wings captain Scott Gabrielsen said, "but if we don't get back to the championship and win it, this season has been a loss.

One of the cornerstones of the Philadelphia Wings has decided to hang up his shoes. Because of recurring injuries and the birth of his third child, 32-year-old Gary Martin will close out his eighth year with the Wings at the end of the season. He hopes to leave with a fourth Major League Indoor Lacrosse League championship. "It would be a perfect ending if we could do that," said Martin, who will be honored in a pregame ceremony tomorrow night when the Wings face the Baltimore Thunder at the CoreStates Spectrum (8 o'clock)

The National Lacrosse League's giant, silver-plated championship cup was perched on a table next to the field. A handful of Philadelphia Wings chatting on the sideline were warmly greeted by Mayor Rendell of Philadelphia, who was there to present the team with the trophy and watch the ensuing Inter-Academic League game between Episcopal Academy and visiting Penn Charter. Before the television cameras could roll and the photos could be shot on Saturday, Paul O'Grady, Episcopal's assistant coach, and Tony Resch, Penn Charter's head coach, had to be called away from their school teams.

On a sun-splashed field, surrounded by hundreds of spectators, the La Salle and Malvern Prep boys' lacrosse players jousted, checked and bumped helmets in the continuation of one of the area's best and most heated rivalries. It was La Salle, the perennial Catholic League power and 2004 state champion, vs. Malvern, a year-in and year-out Inter-Academic League force and owner of the 2006 state title. As usual, it was a physical and draining contest. The Explorers, ahead by 5-1 at intermission, held off a second-half surge by the hosts and left Chester County with a sweat-drenched 7-6 victory.

BRIAN DOUGHERTY says he feels great physically, as the 33-year-old sat there with an ice pack on his shin, one on his knee and another on his chest. The 1992 Episcopal Academy graduate and two-time All-American at Maryland says that the keg of beer that once was his ample belly has been reduced to beer-ball size. He says he eats for one, not for four like he used to. Dougherty still likes to talk, but the goaltender for the defending Major League Lacrosse champion Barrage has undergone some changes.

Bill Leahy and Tony Resch stand at polar ends of the lacrosse spectrum. Leahy, the head coach at La Salle High School, sprung from the fertile grounds of Baltimore as an offensive prodigy. For the last 14 years, he has preached the importance of stick work at the Wyndmoor high school where he built the program from scratch. Resch, a local product, has been the defensive coordinator for the Explorers for three years. Before his arrival at La Salle, Resch coached at his alma mater, Penn Charter, where he molded boys - some of whom thought ground balls occurred only in baseball - into capable competitors.

The only Philadelphia professional team reigning as the champion of its sport acquired a stronger Philly flavor yesterday. The Barrage, of Major League Lacrosse, introduced a new operator, general manager and coach yesterday, all with strong ties to the Philadelphia area. Tony Resch, who guided the indoor lacrosse Wings to four National Lacrosse League championships, will take over as coach of the Barrage, who play their games outdoors at Villanova Stadium. Resch replaces Sal LoCascio, who retired for personal reasons after leading the Barrage to their first MLL title.

Ryan Ward is about to start his first job out of college, and he's excited. And if Ward turns out to be as good as his new employers expect him to be, a lot of other people in the Philadelphia area will be excited, too. Ward, 23, a forward and a prolific righthanded scorer, was the first choice of the Wings in the National Lacrosse League draft last month. Ward, one of the hottest prospects in the draft, is scheduled to arrive in the area today to join the Wings' preseason camp in Downingtown.

It was the perfect blend of boredom and testosterone at the perfect time. Tony McDevitt, then a freshman at Penn Charter, said he had tired of baseball, but thought he had no alternative for a spring sport. Fortunately for him, Tony Resch, the former Penn Charter lacrosse coach who also coached the Philadelphia Wings, spotted him in the hallway and talked to him about lacrosse through the fall and winter. "You get to hit people," said Resch, who is now the athletic director at La Salle High.

The Wings hope that history doesn't repeat itself when they visit the Toronto Rock in tonight's National Lacrosse League (NLL) championship game in the Air Canada Centre. Toronto, which is only in its fourth year of existence, has won the last two NLL championships, and in both seasons the Rock defeated the Wings in the semifinals. The Wings are 1-6 lifetime against the Rock, including 0-2 this season, 0-2 in the playoffs and 0-3 at Toronto. At 11-3, the Rock were the regular-season champions this season.
