Paulsboro will try to tie a record for consecutive wins when it plays at Haddonfield tonight. Sound familiar? Two years ago, the Red Raiders equaled the South Jersey record of 31 straight wins at Haddonfield. In the same game, Paulsboro quarterback Kevin Harvey broke the South Jersey record for most career points. "I had to present him the ball," said Haddonfield coach Jim Horner, who was the athletic director at the time. "That was weird. I hope we don't have to do that this time.

Lenny Dykstra can't decide what in the world to do. The Phillies' centerfielder will be making the first All-Star appearance of his career tonight at Wrigley Field. He'll be leading off for the National League and playing centerfield. And, for the life of him, he can't decide whether to savor the moment and prolong it or to jump all over the first pitch from Oakland Athletics righthander Bob Welch, the American League starter. Decisions, decisions. "I know he's going to throw me a first-pitch fastball," Dykstra fretted yesterday.

Tyler Kaminski's 100th victory was going to be a big moment whenever it happened. But for the West Deptford wrestler to pick it up against the caliber of competition he did Wednesday, and to do it during such a dramatic team victory made it all the sweeter. Kaminski earned a 9-2 decision over district champion Brian Navarro at 120 pounds, and West Deptford beat visiting Haddon Township, 31-30, on a tiebreaker. The match was decided by Criteria D, which uses the number of individual matches won by each school.

As an annual service to partygoers, here are some New Year's Eve social tips from that well known social arbiter, Slats Grobnik. They are taken from his best-selling book, "My 30 New Year's Eves Without an Arrest. " WHAT TO WEAR The current "in" garments are Edwardian suits for men and maxicoats and dresses for women, or the reverse if you really want to whoop it up. White turtlenecks and bowling-league shirts are no longer tres chic. Regardless of what you wear, the most important consideration is that it can be thrown in the furnace and burned the next day. WHAT TO DRINK Select one favorite beverage and stay with it all evening, and all the next day if you wish.

John Spence Jr. has done almost all there is to do in a bowling alley. Three perfect games. Thirteen titles on the Junior Bowlers tour. A member of William Paterson College's national championship team in 1992. The Monsignor Bonner graduate will add one more line to his bowling resume this year, however. He will coach the William Paterson men's team and direct the men's and women's programs. "It should be a good experience," said Spence, who took over for Dave Carter at the school in Wayne, N.J. "A lot of preparation is involved.

CUPID & CATE, 9 p.m. Sunday, Channel 3. "Cupid & Cate," based on a novel with the significantly less alliterative title "Cupid and Diana," could've been structured a little more efficiently. The romantic telefilm spends its first hour spinning its narrative wheels, protractedly spelling out its fairly simplistic plot complications; then, in 15 minutes, a whole bunch of things happen. The final 45 minutes are given over to the rote resolution of that brief, calamitous spurt of narrative.

Marquita Dobbins might know a little something about basketball. Trying to be a good mother, Marquita has called the basketball coaches at colleges where her son, Demarice, has applied, just to see whether there might be interest. "I didn't really want her to help," Demarice said, laughing. "But if she wants to, I guess I can't stop her. " In future calls, Marquita can add this to her pitch: "My son is pretty darn clutch. " Demarice Dobbins, a 5-11 senior combination guard, yesterday swished a 9-foot, buzzer-beating jumper to lift Parkway over visiting Franklin Learning Center, 49-47, in a Public League game.

Now the La Salle Explorers can brush the streamers from their heads, sweep the blue and gold balloons from the court and get back to concentrating on basketball. The anticipation and the revelry are finished. That's because Lionel Simmons, the Explorers' brilliant 6-foot, 7-inch senior, last night ended his season-long bid to join the exclusive 3,000-point club in a 100-60 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference victory over Manhattan before 8,136 at the Civic Center. Simmons became only the fifth player in NCAA history to score 3,000, and he did it with a free throw 7 minutes, 16 seconds into the first half.

From: Michael Harrington Donovan scores in stoppage time! The greatest moment in the history of U.S. soccer!!! Wooo . . . have to catch my breath. Talk among yourselves. Amazing stuff by Donovan. Right up there with some of the great American sports moments of all time. Going out in a 0-0 tie would have been painful. But isn't it Thursday?

LOS ANGELES - Out on the field, the Dodgers were finishing up their prep work. Some Phillies had already trickled out onto the field, kibitzing with acquaintances from the other team in that odd baseball routine. The late-afternoon sun had already cast streaks of darkness over the dimensions of Dodgers Stadium, providing a little cover for the solitary figure sitting alone on a bench at the top of the visitors' dugout. "I like being by myself a lot of times," Charlie Manuel had said just minutes before, when he met with the media for the first time since his mother's passing.

THANKS TO this past fall's widely debated independence vote, as well as poppy entry points like the hit Starz series "Outlander," talk of Scotland has been rolling off plenty of American tongues in recent months. And it's never long before the talk turns to food. Scotland's reputation in this department stinks. It's battered and deep-fried candy bars, at its most flattering; the dreaded haggis, at its least. Such characterizations, of course, are more cockamamie than cock-a-leekie soup without the prunes.

BERNARD HOPKINS has a vision for Eric Hunter. And the 50-year-old promoter and fighter wants to make sure Hunter's ability gets shown to the world. It's why Hopkins and the folks at Golden Boy Promotions signed the current USBA featherweight champion to their stable of fighters in October. They believe in his ability and Hunter believes in his own ability; he's just been waiting for a chance to display it. The 28-year-old West Philly native will get a chance to show that talent in his hometown and in front of a national television audience at 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia tonight, when he takes on Rene Alvarado (21-3, 14 KOs)

THIS IS WHERE you want to be, Mark Sanchez said yesterday: Walking up to the line in December, the stadium roaring, the season hanging in the balance. "You've gotta want the ball, with a few seconds left, on fourth down, trying to make a play," Sanchez said, after the Eagles practiced in swirling wind and snow flurries, in preparation for Sunday night's NFC East showdown with the Dallas Cowboys. "Kids don't talk about, 'Throw me a pitch and [pretend] it's 1-1 in the middle of the second inning.' Nobody says that.

Nick Foles let his mind drift for a moment before the Texas Class 5A state championship game in 2006. He was 17 years old and Texas-bred, playing with his best friends in the Alamodome against the top-ranked team in the state. "This is a dream come true," he remembered thinking before the game. On Sunday, the storybook career continues about 280 miles up Interstate 35 when the Eagles play the Dallas Cowboys in a de facto NFC East championship game. It's Foles' biggest game since that day in San Antonio.

All that Muhammad Wilkerson ever wanted is about to become reality. He isn't exactly sure about the when or who part. And to be honest, he isn't really too concerned about the details. The fact that it's going to happen, and the next step in his life will finally begin, is all that matters. The rest of it is for everyone else to worry about. The first round of the NFL draft will unfold tonight. There's every chance that Wilkerson - a 6-3, 315-pound defensive lineman from Temple who has been timed at 4.9 seconds over 40 yards - could be taken as early as the midteens, which would make him the first Owl to go in the opening round since Heisman Trophy runner-up Paul Palmer in 1987.

ON DISTANCE alone, the longest of Terry Brown's two touchdowns likely would have qualified as remember-it-for-a-lifetime material. Another variable clinched it. Though a defense is supposed to include only 11 players, Brown, a 5-10, 195-pound senior, yesterday needed to power his way through 12 while posting a vital, 95-yard touchdown run. And the extra guy was wearing his team's colors. Say hello to Joe Kenney. His job in the five-man officiating crew, which worked Samuel Fels' 22-20 Public Silver victory over Jules Mastbaum Tech at Northeast's Charlie Martin Memorial Stadium, was umpire.
