There is not a lot that Mike Pettine hasn't seen in his 20 years as head football coach at Central Bucks West. You can heap the hype on Pettine and his Bucks until it comes out of their eyeballs. You can rank them nationally, set up a match between C.B. West and its nearest challenger, pack a college football stadium with the nearest challenger's entire home town. And still, the results come out the same. Central Bucks West's streak is now at 35 straight. The Bucks demolished West Chester Henderson, 31-14, last night before about 7,500 fans at West Chester Unversity's Farrell Stadium, in a meeting between The Inquirer's top two teams in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

This was supposed to be the season Coatesville was down, and coach Jerry Quedenfeld was the first to acknowledge that the Red Raiders would have trouble winning their 13th straight Ches-Mont title. "There's no doubt that what everyone was saying about us is true," Quedenfeld said. "We're down this year. But Coatesville is never going to give up, and someone will have to beat us to take away (the title). " The Red Raiders showed that beating them would be no easy task as they upset Allentown Allen, 60-59, to win the fourth annual Coatesville-Allentown Tip-Off Tournament at Allen High School Saturday night.

At this point in the season, the Inter-County Scholastic Hockey League might be compared to a horse race rounding the first turn, with some teams neck-and-neck and others fading quickly.

Two straight weeks of practicing what Downingtown East coach Mike Matta calls "assignment football" paid off. One week after getting torched by the West Chester Henderson option offense, allowing 35 second-half points in a 42-20 beating, the Cougars topped Henderson, 28-17, on the road Friday night in the first round of the District 1 Class AAAA playoffs. "It was an unbelievable win, especially after ending the regular season on such a sour note," said Matta, whose team was a ninth seed, one slot below Henderson.

Immediately, James Wood thought it was going to be a penalty kick. So he waited for the whistle. From the West Chester Henderson goalkeeper's perspective, the senior said, it looked as if a Great Valley defender had grabbed Travis Wilson's arm and pulled him down. With 27 minutes remaining in a tight battle against the Patriots, Wood said he would have been angry if the foul hadn't been called. But before Wood could get heated about a non-call, the ref blew his whistle and motioned to the penalty spot.

Heidi McCollester is lucky enough to have a front-row seat to Lauren Butts' change-up. It's a privilege the senior catcher for the West Chester Henderson softball team has had since middle school, as she has been behind the plate for Butts, also a senior, for the last six years. With all that experience, McCollester has seen just what the pitch has done to opposing batters. They stand there, their feet seemingly glued to the batter's box, or they swing late, not getting remotely close to the power of a normal swing.
