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.

They are leading their division with a 7-0 record. "We know other teams don't take us seriously," Upper Merion coach Joe Giumento said.

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.

West Chester Henderson's ice hockey team, winner of just two of 29 games over the last two seasons, doesn't figure to be a pushover this time around.

" Henderson opened its season three weeks ago with an 11-4 loss to West Chester East, a team that is likely to contend for both the Division AAA (large school)

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. In a week critical to the race that has heated up in the ICSHL, West Chester Henderson vaulted to a 1-point lead in first place over Conestoga by earning a win and a tie in its two contests last week. The Warriors' biggest test came last Monday, when they put their 4-0 record on the line against a Downingtown team boasting an identical record.

Two straight weeks of practicing what Downingtown East coach Mike Matta calls "assignment football" paid off.

"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.

Julie Griesemer spent the first half of West Chester Rustin's 1-0 win at West Chester Henderson keeping herself warm on the bench by cheering on her teammates.
