B4 GETTYSBURG TIMES • MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2002 Mustangs (Continued from Page HI) When Kaehler rolled right and found Permentcr for a 10-yard gain to the two-yard line, it set up a burst to the end /.one by Ty Stahl. Matt Schmidt then picked up the extra point snap and ran to the corner of the end '/.one for the two-point conversion, evening the score. Two big sacks by Marcus Hatcher and Nathan Smith put York in a fourth and 24 situation, resulting in the Mustangs getting the ball right hack at midfield. The ensuing drive died on the 15-yard line however, when, on fourth and seven. South Western passed up the field goal attempt and went for the first down. Kaehler.s pass fell incomplete. The Mustangs got the ball back again with 21 seconds left in the half after York failed at its own 20-yard line. Kaehler had three passes that were right on target, but they could not be pulled in. Two of the drops were by Schmidt, who is fourth in the Times area in receiving with 16 catches and a fine receiver. The half ended with the score knotted at 14-14. "Josh Kaehler played a terrific game," said Mustangs coach Don Seidenstricker. "He put the ball on the money all day long, on a sloppy field in miserable conditions. We should have had some of those in the first half. And Matt always catches those. He.s one of the leading receivers in the area." South Western drove the field to open the second half, taking six minutes to go 50 yards in 13 plays down to the six-yard line. After Vcrnon Ellis, who played a nice game for the Bearcats, broke up a pass in the end /.one, the Mustangs attempted a field goal. Once again, Bingham's presence was sorely missed as the kick sailed wide. York took the ball from the twenty and used the rest of the quarter to drive to a first and goal at the Mustang seven-yard line. Schmidt then came up with a big interception in the end zone to thwart the drive. However, on the next play, from the 20-yard line, Buchanan recovered a Bostian fumble for York. On the next play, the first play of the fourth quarter. James Orr stretched himself out and made a beautiful juggling catch of a Harpstcr pass, giving the Bearcats a 20-14 lead with one quarter of football to go. "We just can't make anything easy for ourselves," lamented Seidenstricker. "This is not a bad football team, but they just don't believe in themselves. I guess they did believe in themselves a little down the stretch. We moved the ball, and did everything we wanted to do in the game. We did what we wanted to do on defense except for four big plays." With seven minutes left, Bingham showed up. The Mustangs got the ball back with 5:49 remaining. Just over two min- utes later, Kaehler hit Permenter with a delayed pass from 10 yards out, and Bingham made the kick. South Western never led in the game until that kick. Kaehler intercepted Harpster to end York's last threat with 1:33 to go, and South Western got its second win.

Colonials (Continued from Page Bl) The second half opened with a heavy dose of Central's preferred method of offense, the hand off to Jamar Miller. Four straight Miller carries netted 24 yards for the Panthers, who then inexplicably turned to three straight passes, all of which fell incomplete, forcing a punt. That opening drive was to be characteristic of the half for the Panthers, who consistently moved the ball during the third quarter before stalling out or fumbling each time. With the constant running by both teams, the middle of the field had been churned into a thick and gummy mud capable of causing shoes and footballs to disappear. Those conditions made it increasingly difficult for Central to play catch-up, and set up the Colonials to deliver the coup-de-grace to the Panthers. That finishing blow was deliv- ered by Banda, who carried six times on a fourth-quarter drive that originated at the Colonials' own ten-yard line. Banda's final carry was good for a 61-yard touchdown in which the junior raced down the left sideline. Pinera's extra point would give the Colonials a 17-0 lead with just over three minutes to go, and gave Lawrence and the New Oxford faithful room to breathe. Minutes later, the Colonials had their fifth straight victory. That mark will face tests the next three weeks as New Oxford travels to Dallastown, Red Lion, and South Western in their quest for a York Area-I title. "We have accomplished a lot of the goals we set to accomplish this year," said Lawrence. "But we don't want to.be satisfied with that. TheseJrguys have done a, great job so far, and now they have to "o and be road warriors."

Playoffs (Continued from Page Bl) "It's the biggest game of my life," said Kennedy, who has 23 regular-season homers in four major league seasons and four in this year's playoffs. "I'm going to enjoy this for a while and then get back to work." Twice before, the Angels had been one victory from the World Series but failed to make it. They lost three straight games to Milwaukee in 1982 and three in a row to Boston four years later, when they were one strike away before Dave Henderson's home run off Donnie Moore. "Everybody is making a big deal of the 1982 and 1986 teams. We had nothing to do with that," said Scott Spiezio, who had three hits and three RBIs. When David Eckstein caught the final out — just as he did in the division series — he ran over to Kennedy and tapped gloves, then danced with Salmon. The Angels jumped on each other in a mob between first base and the mound. Fans cheered as Salmon, the team's senior member, ran around with the AL championship trophy. Percival, in his undershirt, joined teammates for a lap around the field. "I think there is some portion of relief with some of the guys that have been through the wars here," Scioscia said. After losing Tuesday's opener at the Metrodome, the wild-card Angels won four in a row. And they did it against one of baseball's great survivors. Anticipating their team finally would ascend to the Series, some fans showed up dressed as angels, complete with wings. Others held their "rally monkeys" and, fittingly, the pitcher who started the game that put the team in the World Series is called "Ape" by his teammates — Kevin Appier. Giants 4, Cardinals 3 SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds strolled to the plate and St. Louis manager Tony La Russa never hesitated, putting four fingers in the air for an intentional walk. It seemed like a good idea — until Benito Santiago connected. Santiago followed the walk with a tiebreaking two-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night in Game 4 of the NL championship series,;., <•• * ••'< .•. • i •Bonds,' who scored the tying and go-ahead runs, is now one ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOGRAPH OUCH — St. Louis Cardinals Albert Pujols gets hit by a pitch from the San Francisco Giants pitcher Livan Hernandez in the first inning during of game 4 of the NLCS in San Francisco, Sunday. win away from his first trip to the World Series. Robb Nen nearly blew it in the ninth, throwing a third-strike wild pitch to the leadoff hitter and allowing a one-out RBI single by Jim Edmonds. But with runners on first and third, Nen recovered to strike out Albert Pujols and J.D. Drew for his third save in the series. The Giants can win their first NL pennant in 13 years with a win at home Monday night and set up baseball's first all wild-card World Series. Anaheim clinched the AL championship earlier Sunday. Game 1 winner Kirk Rueter with pitch the fifth game for the Giants against Matt Morris.' With two outs and nobody on in the eighth, Bonds stepped to the plate. Left-handed specialist Steve Kline was ready in the bullpen, but La Russa decided to stay with righty Rick White and walk Bonds intentionally. That brought up Santiago, who was nearly out of baseball after a life-threatening car accident in 1998. With a sellout crowd of 42,676 pounding their orange ThunderStix, Santiago worked the count full. He then drove a pitch into the left-field seats. Santiago pumped his fist and tossed his bat away before rounding the bases. Bonds pumped his fist repeatedly on his way hbrne"-^ his long wait for'a chance' to perform' bri 'baseball's biggest stage'just one game away.
