2010 – Last time a Delco team had a chance against Wood

December 03, 2016

PIAA championships

By Havenfootball,net Staff

Archbishop Wood has been a football juggernaut for many years.  When was the last time any Delco high school team had a close game with Wood in a PIAA playoff contest?  You have to go back to 2010 when, yep, you guessed it, Strath Haven met them in Coatesville on December 5th for the quarter-final match-up.  Relive the highlights of the game with that year’s Play-of-the-Game synopsis! 

Academy Park can only play foil in PIAA’s annual recruiting game

Togba Porte’s emotional victory lap a week ago lasted all of 10 minutes. Before the District 1 championship photos were loaded to social media, the Academy Park senior defensive end’s focus had flipped.

“I’m really tired of getting stopped here,” Porte pleaded then, surrounded by jubilant teammates on the muddied turf of Springfield High School.

In four years, the ‘here’ has changed, from state quarterfinals to semis, from Class AAA to 5A, from cityscapes to suburban vistas. But what hasn’t — and what won’t, no matter how much the PIAA beats its chest about its latest stab at inclusion and expansion — is AP’s predicament. Nights like Friday and the 37-0 walloping served by perennial football factory Archbishop Wood aren’t gravitating much closer to competitive balance or whatever hollow bywords fill press releases.

In AP’s dynastic span of three District 1 titles in four seasons, the representatives of a tiny slice of Southeastern Delco have been trounced twice by Wood and its blue-chip-laden suburban all-star squad, and (now 4A) Imhotep Charter with its pan-Philadelphian reach. The only aspect that’s changed in the PIAA’s reconfiguration was that Wood and Imhotep no longer need beat up on each other before slamming a District 1 foe.

Knights determined to leave their mark on the PIAA

Delco Times    PIAA championships

By Matt Smith

Academy Park is sick and tired.

The Knights are fed up with advancing this far in their season, winning District 1 title after District 1 title, only to meet their fate in the PIAA tournament.

Three years ago, it was Archbishop Wood. Last season, it was Imhotep Charter. Each time, the Knights fought admirably but were ultimately manhandled by one District 12 juggernaut or another.

Indeed, the Woods and Imhoteps of the area are perennial powers that are seemingly impossible to bear. Many naysayers believe Academy Park is just standing in the way.

AP wants to change that perception.

At practice, the Knights sounded angry. They talked with attitude. There was reason for that: They believe Wood won’t be the only great team playing Friday at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.

The Knights do not have the five state title banners that the Vikings own, but they are frustrated with being overlooked as nothing more than a pitstop on somebody else’s championship tour.
