Deptford football coach Joe Corbi had quadruple-bypass heart surgery at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden yesterday morning and will be sidelined for at least three weeks, according to his wife. Bernice Corbi said her husband planned to take his familiar place on the Deptford sideline when doctors gave the OK. Corbi is entering his 25th season as the Spartans head coach. "He said as long as he feels all right, he's going to continue," Bernice Corbi said. John Casella, an assistant of Corbi's for more than a decade, will take over as interim head coach, Deptford athletic director Irvin McFarland said.

Joe Corbi had to confront a couple of disadvantages pretty quickly yesterday. The Deptford coach and his team were forced to take a long bus ride for a South Jersey Group 3 playoff game at Brick Memorial. Also, the field was soft and slow because of rain, not exactly perfect for a Spartans squad that relies on speed. After sleepwalking through the first quarter, Deptford - which was making its first playoff appearance in 10 years - began to assert itself and rallied for a 28-14 victory.

Kyle Jenkins provided the highlight. Williamstown had trouble providing the high lights. Jenkins, Deptford's flash of a quarterback, bolted 82 yards early in the first quarter of his team's 18-7 victory at Williamstown last night. That seemed like a lock for the most memorable event of the evening. It was a distant second. With 31 seconds left in the third quarter and Deptford (5-3, 4-2 Tri-County Royal) leading by 12-7, the stadium went dark. The scoreboard was on and the press-box lights were on, but for 15 minutes, the game was off. Apparently an accident in the town had caused high-voltage lights around Williamstown to go off, including those at a nearby department store and supermarket.

Deptford ran the play it wanted, and Williamstown defended the way it wanted. That left it up to how the ball bounced, and it went Deptford's way as Ricky Crews put back a missed jumper at the buzzer to give the Spartans a 40-39 victory over the host Braves in a Tri-County Conference Royal Division battle last night. Williamstown (6-1, 3-1) suffered its first loss, while Deptford (6-1, 5-0) remained in first place. "I knew the only way I would get the ball again is if we missed, and I went hard on the boards," Crews said.

The Deptford Township Council agreed last night to settle a dispute with the South Jersey Builders League, and the pact will mandate slightly larger homes and apartments. The council introduced an ordinance that will amend Deptford's building code to increase the minimum interior sizes of new homes and apartments about 30 to 80 square feet per unit. The ordinance is a result of a compromise. The township had wanted larger minimum living units but had defined the "habitable living space" as excluding closets, hallways, bathrooms and utility spaces.

As he usually does, Washington Township coach Tom Brown left his customary spot atop the press box yesterday and joined his team on the sideline as another game was about to come to an end. Only this was more than just another game. Brown, who prefers to orchestrate his game plan while also serving as the team's eye-in-the-sky, had just guided the visiting Minutemen to a 24-8 victory over Deptford. And when the veteran coach reached the sideline, he was greeted with the ceremonial Gatorade bath in honor of his 100th career victory.

In the latest move to update its once-antiquated system, the Emergency Services Unit has hired two more full-time employees to handle an increasing number of emergency calls. The full-time staff of five had to be expanded because Deptford cannot drum up enough support volunteers, said Police Chief William B. Underwood, who oversees the unit. The emergency services director, Don Banks, said the department had handled 1,400 calls this year, up from 1,250 at the same time last year.

When he conducts practice this afternoon, Deptford girls' basketball coach Mark Petito might decide to work solely on offense. That's because it was a strong defensive effort, not solid marksmanship, that kept the squad's season alive. The Spartans eliminated visiting Cumberland, 44-38, in overtime last night in the first round of the South Jersey Group 3 playoffs. Deptford won despite shooting 23 percent (14 for 61) from the field and 14 for 28 (50 percent) from the line.

One swing. One swing at the end of a long season. One swing at the end of an illustrious career. It didn't win the game. It changed the score but not the outcome. Still, one swing summed up Jess Linquist and her skill and sense of the moment and significance to the West Deptford softball team. "That was Jess," West Deptford coach Mandy Schramm said of Linquist's final swing as a high school player. "That was her, right there. " Linquist is the Inquirer's South Jersey player of the year in softball after leading West Deptford to its first sectional title in 20 years.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - West Deptford's John Oehler has been coaching high school baseball for 10 years. Parsippany coach Ken Dobkin is a 17-year veteran. Neither had seen this before. "Not to end the game," Oehler said. "I've never heard that from an umpire, 'Changed my mind,' " Dobkin said. West Deptford led Parsippany, 2-1, in the bottom of the eighth inning of the NJSIAA Group 2 championship game Saturday at Toms River East. Parsippany had a man on third with one out. Tommy Nowicki chopped the ball to short.

For the longest time, West Deptford has fielded a highly competitive baseball program, one that challenges for the Colonial Conference title on an almost annual basis. This is a team that advanced to the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic final in 2006 only to win it the next year. That is the 16-team South Jersey tournament that consists of the area's top teams. This year, the Eagles went one step farther, advancing to their first state title game. West Deptford (24-6) will face Parsippany (17-10)

As Jess Linquist walked to the plate for the West Deptford softball team, with the bases loaded and her team trailing Johnson High, coach Mandy Schramm knew which side had the odds in their favor. The three hitter - and George Washington recruit - has been the heart of the Eagles' dynamic offensive lineup for several seasons now, consistently getting on base and knocking in runs. So the odds? They were with No. 1 on the Eagles roster. There was no doubt in Schramm's mind. "I knew the odds were against" Johnson, Schramm said.

As the 10-year anniversary of a primary election day murder in Gloucester County approaches, investigators have put out a yearly call for information to help solve the homicide. Detectives continue to seek leads in the June 6, 2006, slaying of Desiree McGraw, a 27-year-old mother of two who was found dead from one gunshot to the head behind a polling place on Mail Avenue in Deptford Township. A reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction - posted at $5,000 at the time of McGraw's death and raised to $8,000 four years later - still stands.

Drew Wilden is a powerful lefthander with darting fastball and a sharp curve. Derek Wakeley is a clever righthander with a tailing fastball and a slick slider. Together, they are a formidable combination on the mound for the West Deptford High School baseball team. For the second postseason game in a row, Wilden and Wakeley split the workload and led the Eagles to victory in the South Jersey Group 2 tournament. Wilden and Wakeley combined on a three-hit shutout with 13 strikeouts Tuesday as West Deptford beat visiting Audubon, 8-0, in the sectional semifinals on a hot, sunny afternoon at Union Field.

When seeing the success of West Deptford senior Samantha Budd, one has to look beyond all the goals, although that isn't always easy to do. She has been a scoring machine in lacrosse since her freshman year. The goals, now at 209 and counting, shouldn't define her, but they do give an indication about her effectiveness. The goals are a big part, no doubt, but this is somebody who is also the equivalent of a 200-goal scorer in the classroom. Budd is ranked No. 10 in her class academically, and here is a sample of the advanced placement classes she is taking: physics, computer science, English, and calculus.

Derek Wakeley has been playing baseball with many of his West Deptford High School teammates since their first days in Little League. "A lot of us go back to when we were 8 or 9," said Wakeley, a senior righthander. Those Eagles will be together for another month, tops. But while Wakeley and company have their sights set on a Colonial Liberty Division title as well as the South Jersey and state Group 2 tournaments, they have another opportunity to make their mark as well. For the first time in three years, West Deptford has qualified for the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic, the most prestigious in-season tournament in South Jersey baseball.
