The Haddonfield boys' soccer team takes pride in the fact that its leading goal scorer, Geoff Dreher, has scored eight goals. The Bulldogs are even prouder that opposing teams have scored six goals. Having the leading scorer tally eight of your team's 68 goals is a sign of team balance. Giving up just six goals shows defensive dominance. And dominating opponents is what Haddonfield has done this season. The Bulldogs (17-1-3) recorded their sixth consecutive and 16th overall shutout in Tuesday's 3-0 South Jersey Group 2 semifinal victory over Schalick.

If St. James coach Tom Stewart couldn't tell the difference between this year's team and last year's team just by looking at the standings, there is now Friday night's Catholic League Southern Division game with Roman Catholic to consider. The host Cahillites whipped St. James, 125-63, to lower the Bulldogs' league record to a dismal 0-10, 1-19 overall. Last year, when St. James traveled to Roman Catholic, it emerged with a a 21-point victory. "We had some big bodies that could go underneath and knock some heads," Stewart said.

It has been a season of ups and downs for St. James, but even that has been an improvement over the last two seasons, which were all down. After going more than two seasons without a Catholic League Southern Division victory, the Bulldogs responded with four league wins this season, including a 66-52 win over host St. Joseph's (5-9, 11-12) yesterday afternoon. The game was the season finale for both teams. Chris Linden led the Bulldogs (4-10, 8-17) with 23 points and Joe McGowan added 17. Vince Curran led St. Joe with 15 points.

St. James senior fullback Bob McCabe and one of the Bulldogs' assistant coaches were standing off to the side, giving St. James defensive back David Gibbs a heavy dose of grief as he tried to answer reporters' questions. "You only made three plays . . . three lousy plays in the whole game," joked McCabe, who carried the ball 15 times for 138 yards and scored all 3 touchdowns in the Bulldogs' 20-7 win over West Catholic yesterday afternoon at Chester Athletic Field. It is amazing that Gibbs was even out on the field, let alone making big plays.

It took St. James nearly a month to win its first basketball game. The rare event came in the opening round of the Knights of Columbus Christmas Tournament on Monday evening. The Bulldogs' 74-61 win over Marple Newtown earned them a place in the finals. But any momentum the Bulldogs had came crashing down less than 30 hours after their first win, as West Chester Henderson (6-3) rolled over St. James, 56-37. "Actually, we didn't play well either night," said St. James center Mike Clark.

St. James scored on its first four possessions against Roman Catholic yesterday afternoon to prepare for the Catholic League playoffs with a 30-6 victory at Roxborough High's field, which the Cahillites call home. Tony Barber ran for 3 touchdowns as the Bulldogs improved their regular- season mark to 5-2 in the Southern Division and 5-3 overall. Roman (1-6 league, 2-7 overall) had already been eliminated from playoff contention. "We don't care who we play, Carroll or West," St. James coach Marty Moke said.

Year in and year out, Haddonfield High's boys' basketball team ranks among the elite of the Colonial Conference. This season, the tradition should continue as the Bulldogs return three of five starters and seven letter-winners from last season's 22-5 team. Veteran head coach Dave Wiedeman will have talent, experience and depth once again. "If we work hard at mastering the fundamentals and stay away from injuries, we have a chance at having a good season," Wiedeman said. "It all depends on how hard we want to work for it. " Among the top players on the Bulldogs' roster will be senior forwards Doug Stewart and Lionel Coleman, both blue-chip college prospects.

Lansdale Catholic and Northern Lehigh entered the game as equals and exited it as opposites. On a stark and stormy night, the Crusaders conquered the Bulldogs, 33-6, in yesterday's PIAA Interdistrict Class AA first-round football game. Steady rain, sweeping winds and temperatures in the mid-30s couldn't keep the Bulldogs' fans from tailgating in the parking lot before the game. But the second-seeded Crusaders were able to stop the third-seeded Bulldogs as well as overcome the elements.

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.

What a year it was - and will be for - David L. Richter, 49, chief executive of Hill International Inc., the Philadelphia-based construction project and claims management company. (It had the contract for the first Comcast tower and is now overseeing construction at the new state prison in Graterford.) Hill reported record 2015 revenues of $720.6 million, up 12.3 percent. Profits rose to $6.9 million, up from a $6.1 million loss. Yet they would have been higher had not the depression in oil prices sliced $3.4 million from the net in bad debt expenses from clients in the Middle East, where Hill gets about 45 percent of its revenues.

NEW YORK - The 2015-16 statistics from UNC-Asheville indicated that Villanova might have a difficult time making three-point baskets Friday in its opening-round game of the NCAA South Regional. But the second-seeded Wildcats didn't appear to have much of a problem with hitting long-distance baskets at all, and they have Daniel Ochefu - a 6-foot-11 center who tried only one three-point shot the entire season - to thank in large part for it. With Ochefu, showing no effects of the sprained right ankle that hampered him in last week's Big East tournament, attracting all the attention from the No. 15 Bulldogs on defense, the Wildcats splashed 13 three-pointers and rolled to an 86-56 victory at the Barclays Center.

NEW YORK - As Villanova counted down this week to its first game in the NCAA South Regional, its concern was getting senior center Daniel Ochefu healthy and back in the lineup full-time following a sprained right ankle that hampered him in last weekend's Big East tournament. The 6-foot-11 Ochefu declared himself ready after the Wildcats' practice Thursday, and coach Jay Wright said he's "100 percent good to go" for Friday's game against 15th-seeded UNC-Asheville at Barclays Center. But given how happy the Wildcats are to see Ochefu healthy, the paradox is that the Bulldogs (22-11)

Villanova keys The Bulldogs like to run, so the Wildcats need to focus on getting back quickly to stop their transition. Villanova has been lacking recently with offensive rebounds, so it has to find a way to be more effective there, yet still get back on defense to stop the UNCA break. Of course, it will be helpful for senior center Daniel Ochefu (sprained right ankle) to be as close to 100 percent as possible. Asheville keys The Bulldogs' last game was in Buies Creek, N.C., in the final of the Big South tournament.

People who haven't seen UNC-Asheville play basketball and are looking for clues on what to expect from the Bulldogs when they take on Villanova in the first round of the NCAA tournament need to look no further than their impressive defensive numbers. The tournament champions of the Big South Conference and No. 15 seed in the NCAA South Regional lead Division I in three-point field-goal percentage defense at 28.4 percent, rank sixth in steals with 9.3 per game and are 14th in forcing turnovers (15.73)

Jamal Goode thought he had let his teammates down seconds before Simon Gratz won a Class 4A first-round overtime thriller, 63-61, against Lower Merion on Saturday. Goode, a 5-foot-8 senior for District 12's third-seeded Bulldogs (16-9), plucked the ball from an offensive player as the Aces tried to overcome a one-point deficit in the waning seconds of overtime at Harriton High. However, Goode controlled the ball only briefly before losing it out of bounds with 27.9 seconds remaining.

It pays to go to practice. Simon Gratz senior forward Harvy Lath has been a consistent attendee, according to his coaches. Before Thursday's District 12 4A seeding game against Archbishop Ryan, however, a few teammates missed Wednesday's session. As a result, Lath, who nearly quit the team earlier this season, seized a starting role and helped the Bulldogs hold off the Raiders, 60-55, at Lincoln. "It was very important because we were undersized and we had to rebound," said Lath, who finished with seven rebounds, a blocked shot and three points.

Tears in their eyes, the Haddonfield girls were visibly upset. But no one felt the team didn't work hard enough. Though second-seeded Haddonfield conceded the NJSIAA Public C swimming final to top-seeded Mountain Lakes (13-2), 93-77, on Saturday, Sophie Fontaine had a positive takeaway for her side: It defied expectations. No one, not even the swimmers themselves, figured the team would make it as far as it did. "I don't think anyone is going to look back on this meet and say they wish they had done something different.

Simon Gratz senior Charly Timite certainly made the most of his brief yet successful high school football career. His junior year was the 6-foot-4, 270-pound lineman's initial foray into the sport. As a senior last season, Timite helped the Bulldogs win the Class 4A Public League championship. During a signing-day ceremony Wednesday at Gratz, the good times continued as Timite penned his national letter of intent, committing to UMass. "I just feel like I'm blessed, but I have way more ahead of me," said Timite, who was recruited to play on the defensive line.
