CHC men can’t quite keep up with Rams

Chestnut Hill College men’s soccer coach Keith Cappo, a graduate of Penn Charter, returned to School House Lane last Thursday, bringing his CHC Griffins along to tackle conference rival Philadelphia University at the Rams’ Ravenhill Field.

More than an hour into the contest, a first-half goal for the hosts remained the only point on the scoreboard, but the pace picked up after that. CHC tied it up, Philly U. regained the lead, then the Griffins pulled even at 2-2 with just 6:51 to go.

Later in the same minute, the Rams went ahead for good, then they added an insurance goal with under two minutes remaining to lock up a 4-2 victory. Chestnut Hill departed with an overall record of 9-9 and a 5-7 mark in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference, while the Rams rose to 8-2-1 in the CACC and 11-5-1 against all opponents. The Griffins had already earned a spot in the conference tournament, but Thursday’s loss consigned them to playing another road game at Philly U. in the first round.

“They’re a very good team and it was good for us to score a few goals and be tied with them a couple of times,” CHC’s Cappo said.

Wilson, Skinner run to Pa. title, GFS top team

To look like a genius of prognostication at the 2010 Pa. Independent Schools Cross Country Championships last Saturday, all you had to do was circle the favorites.

Chestnut Hill Academy junior Dustin Wilson wins the boys’ race – check. Penn Charter sophomore Catie Skinner wins the girls race – check. The Germantown Friends School boys squad, 21st in the nation last fall, takes the boys’ team championship – bingo. Two-time defending champ Academy of Notre Dame takes the girls’ title - right again.
