Palmyra fell to Central Jersey champion Bernards, 3-0, in yesterday's NJSIAA Group 1 state soccer semifinal at Hamilton East High. The loss, which followed Palmyra's upset of previously undefeated Haddonfield, left Pals coach Bob Patchel understandably frustrated. "We controlled well in the first period," Patchel said. "We passed the way we wanted to, we set ourselves up well and we had some good shots. Some were a little long and a little wide. " Could the Pals been a little flat after stunning Haddonfield?

The NJSIAA state tournaments will have a new look, especially in South Jersey, because of legislation passed yesterday to equalize the number of teams in the four sections of the state - North I, North II, Central and South. As expected, the legislation was passed overwhelmingly at a general membership meeting at the Pines Manor. It needed a simple majority. A total of 184 representatives voted yes, with 72 voting no and two abstaining. The change will take effect for the 2003-04 school year.

In the geopolitics of sports rivalries, center ice for a Flyers-Jersey Devils face-off cuts through New Jersey near 40 degrees, 11 minutes north, or close to Interstate 195. Here in the narrow middle of the Garden State, the poles of Philadelphia and New York - and by extension North Jersey's Meadowlands - tug sports fans in different directions, dividing towns and even families. Even individuals are divided. A Flyers fan, for example, could cheer for the Yankees or Giants at different times of the year, which would be heresy through much of South Jersey.

Cara Murphy provided some early offensive punch, scoring 10 first-half points, and Danielle White supplied the knockout blow, picking up 12 of her 15 points after intermission, as Haddon Township outscrapped Haddonfield, 41-34, last night to capture the South Jersey Group 2 girls' basketball title. Along with avenging two regular-season losses to their Colonial Conference foes, the Hawks (23-4) claimed the school's third sectional championship - and its first since 1996. Haddon Township advances to the state semifinals tomorrow at Southern and will face the Central Jersey champion, Rumson-Fair Haven, which beat Raritan Township, 46-44, last night.

It's not hard to find Mindy Coxe on the field. Just keep an eye on the left side of the cage, and the Gloucester forward is sure to be there, hugging the post like a child gripping a prized stuffed animal. Coxe knows that's where the goals are found. Yesterday, it was where she could be found just before depositing the game-winning goal with 1 minute, 54 seconds left in the first sudden-death overtime period as the Lions' field hockey team captured the South Jersey Group 1 title with a thrilling 3-2 victory over visiting Paulsboro.

After months of problems and hundreds of complaints, borough officials said yesterday that they had signed an agreement to terminate their trash-hauling contract with a private firm. Central Jersey Waste & Recycling was hired late last year and began work Jan. 1. "It's been horrendous," Mayor M. James Maley Jr. said. "It's like having a group of thugs collect our trash. " James R. Lambert, president of the Trenton-based company, said many of the borough's issues had nothing to do with the contract.

There never has been one New Jersey. Even in the colonial times it was officially divided between East Jersey and West Jersey. Then came the appellations North Jersey and South Jersey. And in recent years, we've been hearing more about a Central New Jersey - an area encompassing counties in the state's narrow middle that also has been called the Wealth Belt. New census numbers based on prerecession, pre-9/11 surveys are out and they only go to reinforce the notion that the Garden State is made of more than one crop.

American Idol announced its Top 40 Thursday night, and, alas, none is from the immediate Philadelphia area. The most local performer left is Chris Watson, a head-scarf-sporting dude who grew up in Dover, Del., and lives in Central Jersey, near the nexus of the turnpike and the Garden State Parkway. No one else remains from Pennsylvania or those adjacent states. Gone are Taylor Ivy Rand, the Chickie's & Pete's hostess who graduated from Girls High; Courtney Calle, a student at Council Rock North; and Zach Birnbaum, a student at Cherry Hill High School West.

Valley Shepherd Creamery's recent arrival in the Reading Terminal Market is cause for celebration for lovers of the Central Jersey farm's cave-aged sheep and cow's milk cheeses (Valley Thunder, Crema de Blue), not to mention the indulgent grilled cheeses from its Meltkraft sandwich counter. But the greatest reason to visit so far is the fresh mozzarella cheesemaker Jamie Png crafts twice daily. Made from shredded curds that are melted, pulled and braided, it's a revelation to anyone who's only tasted bouncy store-bought mozza.

Maple Shade coach Shayne Gismonde answered many questions as a student and field hockey player at Gloucester, but none may have been as difficult as Gloucester's defense was on Monday. But Gismonde and Maple Shade shocked top-seeded Gloucester, 3-0, in a Central Jersey Group 1 semifinal at Gloucester. Gloucester gave up only six goals over 20 games going into Monday's matchup. "I know, from personal experience, how tough Gloucester is to beat," Gismonde said. "They're very experienced in the postseason and they have an amazing coaching staff.

PRINCETON JUNCTION - The brass band couldn't make it. The banners outside the studio were for an athletic event at Mercer County Community College. Thus, in its own unglamorous way, did WWFM-FM debut its significant new show on Aug. 4 that takes the Curtis Institute of Music out of its Field Concert Hall headquarters and onto the airwaves every Saturday at noon. You'd think this radio milestone would have been promoted with the best-known piece ever written at Curtis, Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings . "Nah!
