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.

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.

Pleasantville's baseball team still doesn't have a field, but it does finally have a win. Antonio Mercado broke a tie with an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth Monday and the Greyhounds rallied for an 11-9 victory at Bridgeton in the Cape-Atlantic League. Michael Peralta added a two-run single late in the sixth to seal Pleasantville's first win. The game was played at Bridgeton because Pleasantville's field is under construction. Elsewhere in the Cape-Atlantic, Sean Mooney hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth to put Ocean City ahead for good in its 5-3 win over Egg Harbor Township.

Organizers of a march Saturday to protest the fatal police shooting two months ago of a motorist Jerame Reid in Bridgeton, N.J., said Friday they expect to draw hundreds from all over the region, including the mother of a man killed by Philadelphia police. Among the anticipated protesters is Tanya Dickerson-Brown, mother of Brandon Tate-Brown, who was shot and killed by Philadelphia police the night of Dec. 15, two weeks before Reid's death Dec. 30. Both shootings occurred during traffic stops, and police say each man was reaching for a weapon.

Four people protesting the fatal police shooting in December of a man in Bridgeton, N.J., were ticketed Tuesday night for not staying on the sidewalk, prompting the protest leader to accuse police of using scare tactics. Bridgeton police said they warned organizer Walter Hudson - one of those cited - to stay on the sidewalk beforehand, and also gave warnings via patrol car loudspeakers to the nearly 40 marchers to stay out of the street. Police said the march briefly blocked traffic on South Avenue.

BRIDGETON, N.J. - The mayor of Bridgeton and civic leaders on Friday backed an investigation by local prosecutors of a fatal police shooting last month that caused further controversy this week when a dashboard camera video of the encounter was released. Some civil rights activists have urged the state Attorney General's Office to take over the probe, alleging a conflict of interest at the Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office. "I truly believe in the Prosecutor's Office," Mayor Albert Kelly said during a news conference at police headquarters.

BRIDGETON, N.J. - A cross made from a broken piece of picket fence marks the spot where Jerame Reid was fatally shot during a traffic stop in the Cumberland County seat, and a sign posted to the fence at South Avenue and Henry Street purports to explain what happened on the night of Dec. 30: He was shot 7 times by two police. Hands up, don't shoot. The traffic stop quickly escalated when Officer Braheme Days spotted a handgun in the glove compartment and pulled out his service weapon - and the recent release of a dashboard-camera video lays it out more clearly, although there's still some dispute over the details and who's to blame.
