Scoring points was a problem for Woodlynde last year. The Warriors had opportunities, but no one with a smooth shooting touch, coach Dave Shank said. Turnovers plagued the team, many coming after it successfully broke tough full-court pressure. That evidently has changed this year with a new corps of players. Shank is confident that he has players who not only want to shoot the ball, but also will move the ball close enough for a good shot. "We had a great group of kids," Shank said, "but there was no one who could shoot the ball.

Another season, another heartbreaking loss. For the third straight season, the West Chester Henderson boys' soccer team lost in the PIAA Class AAA state championship match.

In 2003, the Warriors (20-6) suffered a 1-0 overtime loss to Upper St. Clair. Last season, the suburban Pittsburgh school again defeated Henderson, 2-0. The Warriors did win the Class AAA crown in 2002, but that was the furthest thing from their minds last night, as several players tried to fight back tears.
