Jahmir King finally stopped. The Collingswood running back they call "Turbo" found a lane between three defenders and went untouched for 60 yards, but he quickly hit the brakes when he reached the end zone. He turned around, crossed his arms, and waited for the rest of his team to celebrate with him in the end zone. That seemed to be the way to go Saturday afternoon. Patience paid off for him and his team all day. Collingswood divided 32 carries among nine ballcarriers, and, when he got his turn, King was the fourth Panther to run for a touchdown in a 41-0 win at Audubon in a Colonial Conference Liberty matchup.

Chelsea Fadio remembers the moment she found out about the Audubon girls' soccer scoring record. It was about 20 minutes before she broke it. "I walked up to my mom to get my drink at halftime," Fadio said. "And she told me I was one goal away. "I figured I should probably go out and try to score a goal. " She did. In a Sept. 29 win over Sterling, Fadio, just a junior, netted the 58th goal of her career, making her Audubon's all-time leading goal-scorer, breaking a mark set in 2003 by Noelle Bissinger.

In a game in which the offenses were operating at will, a defensive play was the difference. Zach Pergola's 66-yard return of a fumble broke a tie with 5 minutes, 43 seconds remaining and sent Audubon to a 33-27 win over host Haddon Heights on Saturday in a highly entertaining Colonial Conference football matchup. Pergola, a 6-foot, 175-pound junior, scored on both sides of the ball, also adding a 21-yard touchdown reception. "This was the best game I've ever had and the best one I've been involved in," Pergola said.

Eric Schorr has nothing against singles and doubles. He likes home runs. But for Audubon's senior centerfielder, there's something special about triples. "I love hitting triples," Schorr said. "You have to hit it in the right spot, you have to really get a hold of one, and you have to be able to run. " Nobody in South Jersey baseball history has ever hit more triples than Schorr. He has set the South Jersey record this season with 10. He hit one in each of Audubon's last three games.

With a trip to the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic semifinals on the line, the St. Augustine Prep baseball team mustered only three hits against Audubon on Saturday. Good thing they had Joe Gatto.

He smashed an RBI double in the third inning to score Ryan Piscitelli, who had doubled ahead of Gatto. Piscitelli later brought in the Hermits' second run on a sacrifice fly in the fifth.
