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.
