Mike Korom looked relieved. Not elated. Not particularly happy. Just relieved. "There goes the rest of my hair," the Valley Forge Military Academy football coach said, removing his cap to prove his point. The Trojans had just survived a scare, scoring a touchdown in the fourth quarter to beat Wyoming Seminary, 14-7. They also had survived an offense that bore little resemblance to the one that led the Trojans to five straight wins going into Saturday's contest. The reason for Valley Forge's struggles was simple: no DaJuan Hill.

Opting to go the prep-school route, Penn Charter's John Loughery, a strong-armed quarterback, said he will attend Wyoming Seminary, in Northeastern Pennsylvania, in the fall. "I went up there a couple of weeks ago, and I really liked the school," he said. "I'm ready to get another year of work at quarterback under my belt. I hope to prove people that had questions about my game wrong. " The 6-foot-5, 220-pound senior had planned to play one season at Valley Forge Military Academy in Wayne.

Mike McKeon was just hoping to get lucky against Wyoming Seminary on Saturday afternoon. It marked the first time McKeon, an undersize center, had started at defensive end for Episcopal Academy. Maybe he would pick up a sack, or just something statistical to prove that McKeon, a 5-foot-8, 155-pound senior, had played. McKeon got a little more than lucky; he helped spoil Wyoming's homecoming weekend with a 21-14 nonleague football victory. The victory moved Episcopal to 3-3 overall, while Wyoming Seminary fell to 0-5. Starting for the first time on defense, McKeon blocked an extra point, picked up a sack for minus-10 yards, recovered a fumble, and was credited with a tackle for minus-9.

Germantown Academy found itself on the other end of a high-scoring game Saturday, falling to host Wyoming Seminary by 47-22 in a nonleague football game in Kingston, Pa. Just five days earlier, the Patriots had blasted the Haverford School by 48-0. The Patriots (6-2) jumped out to an early 6-0 lead on a 9-yard pass from junior quarterback Rob Heleniak to senior wide receiver Jay Jordan. Wyoming Seminary (5-0) quickly tied the score, but the Patriots regained the lead, 14-6, in the second quarter when Matt Blewitt scored on a 15-yard run and Heleniak connected with senior Ted Holmes for the two-point conversion.

Episcopal Academy's jack-of-all-trades, Ralph Roam, lived up to his surname on the football field Saturday afternoon as he went here, there and everywhere in the Churchmen's 27-6 victory over Wyoming Seminary. Name an aspect of the game, and chances are Roam made a contribution in that area. Offense? All Roam did was catch two passes for 112 yards and a 73- yard first-half touchdown. Defense? The 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior recorded six tackles and intercepted a pass. Special teams?

Germantown Academy wrestling standout Chris Henrich was not at his best this weekend, but nobody would believe him. The senior 171-pounder cruised to his fourth straight individual championship yesterday and earned the prestigious Ronald K. Nelson Award at the Pennsylvania Independent School Wrestling Championships at the Haverford School. Henrich, despite missing practice during the week due to a bruised leg muscle and a head cold, earned three first-period pins to reach the finals and then won by technical fall in 5 minutes, 57 seconds over La Salle's Ben Courtney for the crown.

Going into the final round of the 21st annual Pennsylvania Independent Schools Wrestling Tournament yesterday, Wyoming Seminary had advanced eight wrestlers, and host Germantown Academy had seven in title bouts. Both the Blue Knights and the Patriots would end up with four gold medalists, but a 4-3 edge in silvers helped Wyoming Seminary claim its second straight tourney championship. The Blue Knights, from Kingston, Pa., scored 254 points to 241 for Germantown Academy. Catholic League champion North Catholic was third with 234, followed by La Salle with 171.5.

When the season started, Valley Forge Military Academy coach Jim Burner figured there was no way the Trojans could run as they did last year, when they barely ever had to throw the ball while sweeping to an 8-0 record. Marrio Greer has changed Burner's thinking, and in the process has raised the question of whether Valley Forge is perhaps as good as last year's team despite its current 3-2 record. Greer carried 8 times for 200 yards and 3 touchdowns Saturday as the Trojans subdued Wyoming Seminary, another independent prep school that recruits postgraduates, 27-7 in Wayne.

Bobby Endy won his 100th career match Saturday afternoon, but it wasn't even his biggest win of the day. The St. Joseph's Prep senior earned a pin in the first round of the District 12 Tournament at Edison High School for his milestone victory, but his next two pins made him the 152-pound champion. Endy improved to 32-0 on the season. He has 20 wins by fall. St. Joe's Prep's Sean Lyons was the 120-pound champion, and the Hawks finished fifth. Father Judge won the team tournament with 206.5 points and had five individual champions.

Wyoming Seminary knew it had to stop Valley Forge Military Academy's explosive running quarterback Karl Hankton to win Saturday's game. But while the Blue Knights were busy slowing Hankton, Valley Forge's Tim Davis picked up the slack. Davis rushed for 151 yards, including a 71-yard touchdown run, to lead the Trojans to a 14-9 win in front of a large homecoming crowd at Nesbitt Field. "They've been keying on Hank, and Timmy Davis is reaping the benefit of that," said Valley Forge coach Jim Burner.
