They formed a massive pileup in the center of the muddy football field late last night, raised their helmets to the heavens and hugged and shouted and didn't want to let go of the moment. You couldn't blame them. Williamstown had just registered probably the biggest victory in the program's 47-season history. Williamstown scored a stunning 32-30 Tri-County Conference Royal Division win over visiting Deptford, ending the Spartans' 20-game winning streak while taking a major step toward capturing a piece of the first football championship in its history.

The Phillies were home on an idyllic summer evening, and they could dream. No team in baseball has played fewer games in their own ballpark. There are luxuries the road does not offer. Before a 5-4 victory Friday was complete, a grounds-crew member handed the Phanatic an Atlanta Braves batting helmet. The mascot crushed it. He flashed the Braves dugout. Everyone cheered. The fans crave that old winning sensation. No one knows what the Phillies' future will be, although portents could come during this 10-game home trial.

ATLANTA - The stationary bike beeped twice, and Joe Blanton stepped off after 15 minutes exactly. Around him, the rest of the Phillies reveled in a brisk getaway day 4-0 victory over the Braves. A team official worked feverishly to push up the team's charter flight to Washington. Brian Schneider iced his back with a wide smile. Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon lounged in a corner of the room and laughed. "I was hoping for under two hours," Blanton said. His first shutout in 1,797 days took 2 hours, 2 minutes to complete.

DAN UGGLA got Atlanta started with his bat. His glove helped finish off his former club. Uggla hit a three-run homer in the first inning and sprawled to snare a ground ball that ended a Miami threat in the eighth, Martin Prado tied a career best with four hits and the visiting Braves beat the Marlins, 7-5, Monday night. It was the fourth straight win for Atlanta, which moved within five games of idle Washington in the NL East. "Three-run homer, but for me Danny saved us defensively," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said.

Brian McCann finally got his swing back where he likes it. The Braves are pretty happy with it, too. McCann homered twice and visiting Atlanta beat the Chicago Cubs, 8-3, yesterday. "I just haven't really swung the bat that great since coming off the DL. When you don't feel good and you face good pitching, it's an exposure," he said. "I've been working in the cages the last 3 or 4 days trying to find it, and today I made some strides. "I went down to the cage this morning.

ATLANTA - Cole Hamels wandered aimlessly around the infield grass Friday night after his $144 million arm failed once again. He peeked toward center field, and not yet knowing the ball's fate, started walking in a circle. Finally, when a fat 92 m.p.h. fastball landed as a three-run Brian McCann home run, Hamels paused and stared into the night. "It was a long week," Hamels said later. There is no explaining how a pitcher two days removed from signing one of the largest contracts in baseball history authored a first act as gruesome as the Phillies' 6-1 loss to the Braves at Turner Field.

David Ross, Atlanta's 35-year-old stocky backup catcher, stole second base standing up in the seventh inning Wednesday night for his first career steal, and another mutiny started in the stands at Citizens Bank Park. "We want our money back!" one fan yelled. "Yeah!" said another. The ballpark emptied, a 12-6 Phillies loss to the Braves the latest cause for consternation. It was a night when pitching systematically failed the Phillies, beginning with Kyle Kendrick's clunker of a start.

A week ago, Williamstown had one of the biggest wins in its football history. On Friday, the Braves settled for a defining victory, one that showed the program's staying power. Instead of suffering a letdown, the Braves never let up in a 41-17 win over visiting Moorestown in an interdivisional West Jersey Football League game. What this showed is that the Braves are not only talented enough to produce dramatic wins, but that the program can move on. And, of course, continue winning.

Take a few walks, a hit batter and numerous errors, and you have the ingredients for a tough game. That was situation Octorara found itself in in just the first inning Friday against visiting Pequea Valley, in the nonleague softball opener for both teams. "It was crazy," Braves coach Deb Feather said after she had watched Pequea score nine times in the first inning, then hold on for a 12-9 victory over her club. The cold and wind didn't help either team, but the first-inning jitters put the Braves in a hole they could not quite dig out of. "That first inning just broke us," Feather said.

With his first defensive play of last night's Tri-County Conference Royal Division showdown, Williamstown junior linebacker John Macaluso sent the Highland Regional offensive line a message. And it was loud and clear. Macaluso broke through and dragged down Tartans quarterback Todd Teschner for a sack and a 7-yard loss, whooping up the Braves' home crowd. "I was in a zone," said Macaluso, who finished with a pair of sacks. "I think I tapped one of my tackles and he hit the outside gap. I hit the inside gap with a killer instinct.
