The season didn't begin so well, and back in mid-September, it was difficult for anybody to envision that Delsea's football team would be playing in December. Yet the Crusaders are in their accustomed position after Friday night's 20-6 victory over visiting Bridgeton in a South Jersey Group 3 semifinal. Delsea (7-4) will meet Allentown in the sectional final Dec. 6 at Rowan. Since NJSIAA playoffs began in 1974, Delsea has won 11 titles, including the last two in Group 3, but this storied program has never won three in a row. Of course, early in the season, all the Crusaders were hoping was to stop a three-game skid.

Talk about making a statement. The Bridgeton girls' track-and-field team headed to Buena yesterday looking for an impressive start to the season. And that's what the Bulldogs accomplished. Bridgeton took back a first- and second-place team trophy to Cumberland County. Competing in the small schools (Group 1 and Group 2) portion of the Buena Relay Carnival, the Bulldogs scored 58 points to win the track-events team championship. Buena was second with 46 points, followed by Schalick (44)

Admittedly, it was not impressive during the preseason, but Northern Burlington's football team has picked up its play considerably now that the games are for keeps. Last night, Northern Burlington unleashed a tenacious defense to stop Bridgeton, 17-12, in a nonleague opener for both teams. During the preseason, Northern Burlington was lackluster against Holy Cross, Cherokee, Burlington Township and Palmyra. But the difficult scrimmages toughened up the Greyhounds. "We didn't do well at all in preseason," said Northern Burlington running back/defensive back Rob Beetel, one of only two returning starters.

Chris Stoll scored seven of his game-high 22 points in the first three minutes of the fourth period last night to lead Holy Spirit High to its ninth straight victory, a 68-65 win over third-ranked Bridgeton. The victory avenged an 87-66 loss to Bridgeton on Jan. 5 and lifted Spirit into a two-way tie for second place in the Cape-Atlantic League's Division I. Spirit (13-2 overall, 10-2 league) and Bridgeton (11-3, 10-2) are one game behind Atlantic City. Bridgeton, which saw its 10-game winning streak ended, entered the fourth period with a 50-46 advantage, largely because of a 10-point third quarter by Adrian Dickerson.

St. Augustine shot a blistering 63 percent from the floor last night and made an equally impressive 82 percent from the foul line to defeat Bridgeton, 76-66, and assume sole possession of first place in the competitive National Division of the Cape-Atlantic League. The Hermits (12-2 overall, 10-1 league) combined last night's win with a defeat of No. 9 ranked Wildwood on Tuesday to break a three-way tie in the division. "When we looked at the schedule after Christmas, we pointed to this week," said St. Augustine coach Paul Rodio.

When the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 championship goes on the line at 1 p.m. Saturday, two very similar teams will compete: Two teams who never have been in the playoffs before, much less a final. Two teams that win or lose almost exclusively with defense. Two schools that have not had much to cheer about in football in more than a decade. When Lakewood visits Bridgeton on Saturday, each team will be looking into a mirror. BACKGROUND Lakewood, coached by George Biessette, was seeded No. 2 in Group 3 after reaching the cutoff date with a 6-2 record in the Shore Conference.

The Bridgeton Bulldogs turned on Roman Catholic with a full-court press in the second quarter last night and didn't let up until they had a 71-65 victory in the second round of the Seagull Classic. Bridgeton, the defending Cape-Atlantic League I champion, was led by senior forwards Adrian Dickerson and Gerald Still, who scored 26 and 25 points, respectively, while strolling unchecked along the baseline. "We didn't have a front-court defense," Roman coach Dennis Seddon said.

The City of Salem has traded its right to build a reproduction of a 17th- century Swedish village in exchange for $50,000, a log cabin and permission to invite the king and queen of Sweden to the Salem County community next spring. The tourist attraction will instead be built in Bridgeton, Cumberland County, under an out-of-court settlement reached yesterday in Woodbury between Salem and Bridgeton officials and the nonprofit company constructing the village, New Sweden Co. Inc. of Salem.

Kingsway and Bridgeton have named new boys' basketball coaches, according to athletic directors from each of those high schools. George Passante has been selected at Kingsway, while Osco Williams was chosen at his alma mater, Bridgeton. Passante replaces Jim Ambrosius, who compiled a 60-40 record in four years. Ambrosius stepped down for personal reasons, according to Kingsway athletic director Joe Galliera. Under Ambrosius, Kingsway went 17-8, 19-7, 15-10 and 9-15. The 19-win season in 2001-02 was the most since the program had a 21-7 record in 1965-66.

Mike Bartley is a small guy who has a habit of making big plays and bigger hits for the Bridgeton football team. Bartley, a 5-foot-9, 155-pound senior, is one of the main reasons the Bulldogs are seeking their first sectional football championship. Bridgeton (8-2) will host Gloucester (9-1) in Saturday's 1 p.m. South Jersey Group 2 final. It is Bridgeton's first title-game appearance since it lost to Lakewood, 7-6, in the 1986 South Jersey Group 3 final. In Bridgeton's 14-12 semifinal victory over Moorestown, Bartley returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to give Bridgeton its 14-12 lead.

David Mosley is hoping the Bridgeton baseball team can qualify for the state tournament because "miracles can happen in the playoffs. " Bridgeton coach Mike Valella suspects he might already have witnessed one. Valella is South Jersey baseball's answer to Job: Patient, long-suffering, ever-hopeful. He entered this season with a career record of 50-256 in 13 seasons. Bridgeton was 1-25 in 2013 and 1-23 in 2014. The Bulldogs were 4-23 last season. When Saturday's four-team Delaney Classic began at Clayton, Bridgeton was 0-5 in 2016.

Jobany Martinez had quite a finish to the championship game of the Delaney Classic baseball tournament at Clayton on Saturday. His Bridgeton team entered the seventh inning trailing by five runs, but the third baseman's two-out, two-run home run capped a five-run rally that tied the game against Pennsauken Tech at 12. Martinez then scored the game-winning run on a wild pitch in the eighth inning as the Bulldogs defeated the Tornados, 13-12....

The bang outside her home sounded like thunder. When Janet Hickman looked out, she saw a school bus tipped over on its side, with children sliding out its back door, and one girl limping and crying. The vehicle that struck the bus had smoke coming out of it, she said. "It was scary," said Hickman, 68, who lives in a trailer park near the accident site. Calling their findings preliminary, New Jersey State Police said the small bus - eastbound in Fairfield Township, just outside Bridgeton - was hit by a westbound black Toyota Rav4 SUV that veered into its path.

For years, New Jersey has been open to business for shady used car dealers at multi-dealer complexes, including one allegedly tied to a New York crime family, another with apparent links to a Lebanese terrorist organization, and a number of others who couldn't get dealer licenses in their own states. Some dealers returned the favor by giving the business to consumers. They sold cars with severe defects, or in at least one case, took cash for cars that were never delivered. Blame for the situation has been placed on the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, whose lax enforcement created fertile ground for bad dealers.

New Jersey's motor vehicle regulator has enabled hundreds of used-car dealers to operate beyond government oversight and perpetrate consumer fraud for years, according to a state report released Wednesday. The 18-month investigation by the State Commission of Investigation opens a window into the obscure world of multi-dealer complexes or locations. It alleges that some of them have ties to organized crime and a group the U.S. considers a terrorist organization. Subjects of the investigation immediately hit back, rejecting the commission's conclusions and arguing that the state Motor Vehicle Commission had properly interpreted its rules in accordance with one of Gov. Christie's first executive orders.
