The first two minutes of last night's NJSIAA Group 2 state title game would have sent most teams into a panic. Instead of freezing after falling behind by 7-0, the Haddonfield girls' basketball team caught fire. By maintaining their poise and playing stingy defense, the Bulldogs topped Chatham, 48-35, for their sixth state title at the Ritacco Center. Haddonfield attributed Chatham's quick start to adrenaline, then set about the task of coming back. "I've been at this so long, you know it's an adrenaline rush," Haddonfield coach Terry Mancini said.

UNION, N.J. - With 14 minutes left in the game, it was vintage Moorestown. A comfortable eight-goal lead. The team running like a machine.

For the benefit of the scientifically challenged sportswriters asking her questions, Amanda Currell made sure to talk slowly. "OK," the senior goalie of the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team said. "At 211 degrees, water is just hot. At 212, it boils and creates steam. Steam powers a locomotive. " She smiled. "So it's that extra degree that really gets you going. " Hence: 212, the rallying cry for this year's Moorestown team. And it's fitting. Because, like a locomotive, the Quakers are again barreling into the Tournament of Champions title game, scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday against Group 2 champion Chatham at Kean University.
