During the moments yesterday afternoon when Good Counsel standout Katie Sheahin struggled to find her shooting touch, the talented senior guard did not fret. Sheahin knew she had plenty of help. Good Counsel's complementary players had come through big in the second quarter, making timely baskets to keep Georgetown Visitation at bay.

For No. 2 -ranked Good Counsel, last week's trip to California was the first time that head coach Bob Milloy has taken his team on an overnight trip for a game. The Falcons knocked off one of San Diego's top-ranked teams, Valhalla, 28-16, on Friday night behind 21 second-half points and a big interception returned for a touchdown by junior lineman Joe Rosenblatt. "We've got some tired kids, but it's been great," Milloy said before the game, adding that the team's Pacific Beach hotel was on the ocean.
