The three-year-old series between Cherokee and East Brunswick has turned into the type fans love - and coaches hate. In other words, a series of dramatic, hard-fought encounters that keep people in their seats until the final gun. As in each of the three games these two high-profile teams have played, the game yesterday came down to Cherokee's balance against East Brunswick's nationally known quarterback, Bryan Fortay. Yesterday afternoon, Cherokee used outstanding pursuit of Fortay, opportunistic defense, and the strong running of tailback Phil Robinson to grind out a 27-20 win, in the opener for both teams.

A trick play yesterday afternoon took away an apparent victory from the Cherokee High football team. The Chiefs, the No. 1 team in the Inquirer's South Jersey rating, wound up settling for a 14-14 tie against East Brunswick after the Bears converted a two-point conversion out of an unorthodox formation with 1 minute, 29 seconds remaining in the game. The nonleague contest was the season opener for both teams. "We've seen that before, but we got caught," said Cherokee coach Jim Horner, whose team went 11-0 last season on its way to the sectional Group 4 championship.

MATAWAN, N.J. - Oakcrest's Fabian Santiago had mixed feelings after he heard the good news about the 4x100-meter dash in which he anchored at the NJSIAA Track and Field Meet of Champions on Thursday in Old Bridge. Although East Brunswick's Alexander Malveaux edged him at the finish line, Oakcrest was declared the winner after East Brunswick was disqualified. Even better, Oakcrest won in a meet-record time of 41.83 seconds, breaking the mark of 42.22 set by Delsea in 2010. "I guess I can be happy later," said Santiago, a junior.

Camden High apparently likes being considered the best. Camden, playing its first game since being named the nation's No. 1 schoolboy basketball team by USA Today, scored a 92-68 win over Central Jersey champion East Brunswick (24-4) in last night's Group 4 state semifinals at the Rutgers Athletic Center. A crowd estimated at 4,000 watched Louis Banks (32 points), Denny Brown (20 points, 16 rebounds), Donnie Walker (17 points) and Vic Carstarphen (14) reach double figures and prevent East Brunswick from making its first trip to the state final.

If it had been a horse race, there would have been a photo finish. That's how close it was in yesterday's NJSIAA Group 4 girls' soccer semifinal. East Brunswick defeated Holy Cross, 1-0, at the Lawrenceville School. East Brunswick (22-0), the Central Jersey champion, is ranked No. 1 in the state in one newspaper poll and No. 2 in the nation by the National Soccer Coaches Association. The Bears will play Westfield for the state title on Saturday. For Holy Cross, the loss meant the end of the road and a 21-2-1 record.

When looking at South Jersey's best boys' tennis teams this season, the place to start is Cherry Hill East. The Cougars, who last season went 24-2 and won the South Jersey Group 4 championship for the fourth straight year, have five of their top seven players back. Both of East's losses were to East Brunswick, one in the regular season and one in the state Group 4 semifinals. East Brunswick went on to win the state Group 4 title and the Tournament of Champions. But East Brunswick lost most of its team to graduation, including Robbie Chess, the state singles champion.

The Rancocas Valley boys' soccer team had the lead, but East Brunswick had the wind.

The past few weeks - a whirlwind for the Egg Harbor Township softball team - haven't allowed much time for reflection. And maybe that's a good thing. Years from now, the Eagles can look back, likely in disbelief, at their part in one of the most memorable stretches in state softball history. But right now, they're locked in. The ride isn't over. "We don't have enough time to reflect on it," Panthers coach Mary Dunlap said as her team prepared for a Group 4 state championship matchup with North Jersey champion Watchung Hills (27-5)

Penn discus thrower Sam Mattis admits that he never starts a season out too well, maybe because he's "not totally in it yet. " But in his first throw of the 2016 season, on a cold and raw day last month at the Philadelphia Collegiate Classic at Penn, Mattis uncorked a spectacular heave that got noticed from coast to coast, and identified him as a prime contender for a berth later this year on the U.S. team for the Rio Olympics. On his 22nd birthday, the 6-foot-1, 240-pound senior threw 221 feet, 3 inches in his initial attempt, the best ever by an American college athlete.

When Richard Reiss was 14 and still in school, he began his cooking career at his father's restaurant near his home in Alameda, Calif., according to his autobiographical notes. "His family roots, a combination of Russian, Jewish, and Greek, meant there was a big emphasis on both food and family," the notes say. But for most of his career, he was "running GE's technology division in Maryland," he wrote. Until 2001. At age 55, he decided to become a chef, and enrolled in Johnson and Wales University in Providence, R.I., from which he graduated cum laude.

NEW YORK - As historic as the U.S. women's soccer team's win was on Sunday, the history did not end there. Friday's parade marked the first time since 1960 that only female athletes were honored with a ticker-tape parade through New York City's Canyon of Heroes. The last female athlete to be honored with her own parade was figure skater Carol Heiss Jenkins after she won Olympic gold in 1960. It was the first time that a women's sports team received such an honor. U.S. midfielder Lauren Holiday, who announced her retirement after the U.S. win, recognized that the significance this day may not sink in for the team right now. "I'm not sure if we realize right now how important this was for women's sports in general, women's soccer obviously," Holiday said.

What a difference a few extra lanes make. The 35-mile stretch of the New Jersey Turnpike from Mansfield in Burlington County to East Brunswick in Middlesex County was dreaded by motorists, who were regularly held up in annoying traffic jams. But now - a few weeks after the completion of a $2.3 billion widening project - many are singing the turnpike's praises, even as the major artery faces its first big test: the Thanksgiving weekend, with the year's heaviest volume. The usual stop-and-crawl delays of a half-hour to nearly an hour - especially on the Wednesdays before the holiday - should be history, officials said.

You know about moths, right? They destroy wool sweaters, lay eggs in the Raisin Bran, and strip bare our shade trees. What's not to hate? Turns out, there's a little to hate and lots to love. Most moths are good guys, serving as important pollinators in the field and garden; protein-rich food for bats, birds, frogs and predatory insects, like praying mantises; and, because of their sensitivity, indicators of environmental change. In case you were wondering, moths can be every bit as beautiful as their publicity-hogging cousins, the butterflies.

THE TEMPLE team that will take the field tomorrow at Rutgers bears little resemblance to the one that opened at Notre Dame 2 months ago. Or even the one that lost to unbeaten FCS Fordham or otherwise winless Idaho in September. And making true freshman P.J. Walker the starting quarterback three games ago isn't the only change that has taken place. Sophomore wide receiver Robbie Anderson, who has 19 catches and two touchdowns, hardly played in the first three games either. And first-year coach Matt Rhule has used a whole bunch of different offensive linemen.
