When Eastern Tech football coach Marc Mesaros first saw his seniors put on pads as freshmen, he knew what they were capable of. "When they came is as freshmen, I knew that it was a special group," Mesaros said. "I told them, if you do everything we ask you to do, and you work hard, you'll be a formidable force." Last night, the group proved its coach right, playing near-perfect football in the last high school home game of their careers, a 35-0 rout of Clarksburg in the 2A state semifinals at CCBC-Essex.

1997 Baron Herzog Chenin Blanc, Clarksburg ($8).This dry, crisp, fruity California white wine is a far cry from the sweet kosher wines of old. It offers lively flavors of peaches, pears and snap peas. It holds more of its charm than most wines that have been put through the flash pasteurization process (used for making most wines that are kosher for Passover). Here's a product with ecumenical appeal for all wine consumers who appreciate a bargain.Pub Date: 03/17/99
