As a desperation three-point shot by a Burlington player fell short at the buzzer, hundreds of Gloucester High fans charged onto the court to celebrate their team's tough win last night.

Mark Watermasysk, a 6-foot-6 senior center, scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, while sophomore guard Sean Gorman contributed eight assists, six steals and nine rebounds, helping top-seeded Gloucester outlast eighth-seeded Burlington, 59-56, in a South Jersey Group 1 quarterfinal game.

A Burlington City man has been charged with murder in the death of his 7- month-old daughter in March, authorities said yesterday.

Cole then left the house in the 200 block of Mott Avenue for his job as a truck driver, they said. Burlington County Prosecutor Stephen G. Raymond said the child's mother, Martha Ayrer, who lives with Cole, was upstairs at the time of the assault on March 3. She later found that the child was not responding to her and took her to Rancocas Hospital in Willingboro.

Matt Hammond might have been the only player in the gym who wasn't overly impressed by his performance.

The win gave Burlington the upper hand in the Freedom. The Blue Devils are 5-2 overall and 4-0 in the division. Palmyra fell to 4-3, 2-1.

Buena earned a piece of South Jersey football lore yesterday, crushing Burlington by one of the biggest margins in area playoff history. The Chiefs won their Group 2 playoff game in a 48-0 blowout, the second- biggest margin ever recorded in a South Jersey football playoff.

The Pals tied that margin by thrashing Point Pleasant Beach, 52-0, in a 1978 Group 1 semifinal.

With a whir reminiscent of science-fiction movies, 15 minutes, and a well-designed model in the computer, Burlington County College's newest piece of equipment created a small, plastic machine part Wednesday morning. The school's new 3-D printer, donated by a local defense contractor, will be at the center of a workforce development program the college hopes will train students in the three-dimensional scanning and printing technologies that have gained popularity in recent years.

An investor from Australia, who co-owns a vineyard Down Under and three restaurants outside London, is now turning his attention to a restaurant district anticipated to take root in Burlington City. Adrian Thomas, who currently lives on a farm in New Hope, Pa., purchased the iconic Cafe Gallery in Burlington for $750,000 late last month. The price includes a liquor license, he said last week during an interview inside the 35-year-old restaurant on the Delaware River. The French restaurant closed nearly a year ago, striking fear in local officials who were in the midst of making ambitious plans to revitalize the city.

When the invasive beetle turned up in Somerset County last spring, state officials were immediately concerned. The emerald ash borer had already killed tens of millions of ash trees across 23 states and two Canadian provinces and spread across Pennsylvania and New York. Its first New Jersey appearance - detected in May by a landscaper working at a strip shopping center in Bridgewater and later in Bernards Township - meant the pest would likely move south. This summer, those fears were realized.

Burlington City officials gathered in a gravel lot on the Delaware on Tuesday to cheer ambitious plans for a community rebirth they hoped would mirror that of Bethlehem, Pa., after the steel plant there closed - though without a casino. John Callahan - who was mayor of Bethlehem for the last 10 years, when the Sands Casino was built around the abandoned steel plant there as part of an entertainment, retail, and housing complex - is now affiliated with a politically connected law firm whose principals want to invest in Burlington's desolate waterfront.

A renewal appears to be stirring in Burlington City, one year after city officials launched a strategy to reverse the fortunes of the depressed community on the Delaware. On a warm day last week the subtle signs were there, from the begonias and plum marigolds planted around the downtown trees, to the customers filling the seats at a sidewalk cafe, to the stream of cars crawling down High Street. Signs on two storefront windows announced a new brewery and a hair salon are coming soon, words of hope that replaced the dreariness of empty, darkened buildings that have marred the downtown in recent years.

Mitch Walker can pitch. He also can hit. He just has trouble doing both in the same game. "Every since I was little, when I pitch I can't seem to hit," Walker said. Double duty wasn't a difficulty for Walker in the quarterfinals of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic on Saturday. The senior righthander pitched a complete game and also hit a three-run home run to lead Pennsville to an 8-1 victory over Northern Burlington in a clash of top-3 teams at Washington Township. "This is huge for our program," Pennsville coach Matt O'Brien said.

The result doesn't always tell the exact story and that was certainly the case two years ago for current Northern Burlington senior lefthander Zack Gakeler. As a sophomore he was 0-6, but his 3.00 ERA was more of an indication of how he pitched than the won-loss record. Since then he has earned a baseball scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh and has become one of the top pitchers in South Jersey. Last season he was 9-1 with 91 strikeouts as Northern Burlington won the Central Jersey Group 3 championship.
