An Egg Harbor Township police officer had to be rescued using the Jaws of Life on Saturday after his patrol car collided with a Volvo station wagon that appeared to have crossed the double yellow line on a two-lane highway in the township's Bargaintown section. Egg Harbor police said Patrolman Ed Bertino, 35, a nine-year veteran of the force, was traveling south on Spruce Avenue near Ninth Avenue when his 2006 Ford was struck and pinned against a guardrail by a 1989 Volvo being driven northbound on Spruce by Alexandro Doukopoulos, 18, of Linwood.

For Egg Harbor Township's field hockey team, defense and a balanced scoring attack have been a sweet combination. Then throw in a strong sense of team unity. The Eagles, who won the Cape-Atlantic American Division I championship with a 9-1-1 league mark, are off to their best overall start in the school's history with an 11-2-3 record. Head coach Kathy Shea's team, which has qualified for the Group 3 playoffs five straight seasons, bounced back to win division honors after going 11-9-1 last season.

There will be no green jacket modeled by the winner, and the closest thing to a magnum of champagne that anyone will see will be an iced-tea pitcher in the clubhouse. But South Jersey golfers will have their own major when the 17th annual Carl Arena Tournament begins this morning at ValleyBrook Golf Club. "This is the biggest tournament we look forward to," said Washington Township senior Rich Hall. "Sectionals are great, but this is a one-day tournament with a lot of great teams and a lot of great players.

Taking advantage of a hectic situation, Carmine Fiore put in a layup as time expired Monday to give Egg Harbor Township a 42-40 road victory over Vineland in a Cape-Atlantic American boys' basketball thriller. Vineland trailed by eight at the start of the final quarter, but managed to outscore Egg Harbor by 15-9, capping the comeback when Steve Tobolski hit a three-pointer to tie it at 40 with less than 10 seconds remaining. Confusion after a subsequent Fighting Clan substitution gave Fiore a chance to get open for a long pass and the winning basket.

LONGPORT, N.J. - Buoys bobbed in the bay near the tip of this town on a recent frigid day. Many of the waterfront homes were empty - their inhabitants absent and elsewhere. Gone, like Andrew Biddle. It has been five months since Biddle, an internationally honored powerboat racer, was declared missing after a pontoon boat he was said to have been aboard struck a buoy and crashed into a jetty. What at first seemed to be a tragic boat accident turned into the launch of Biddle's plunge into mystery.

Collingswood's last football playoff appearance involved a short trip to play an old rival. The Panthers could follow the same path this season as they did in 2005, as they are positioned to qualify as the No. 8 seed in South Jersey Group 2 and could make that brief drive down Haddon Avenue to face top-seeded Camden in the first round. That's one possible scenario in South Jersey Group 2, assuming Collingswood can beat Woodbury on Friday night and Camden holds off Buena for the No. 1 spot - no sure thing as both of those 8-0 teams will look to generate power points this weekend through residuals.

A Jersey Shore hotel accused of post-Sandy price gouging has agreed to pay $65,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by the state Division of Consumer Affairs. Amy Hotels L.L.C., which operated an Econo Lodge on the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township, agreed to settle after the state accused it of renting dozens of rooms at inflated prices. Gov. Christie declared a state of emergency Oct. 27, 2012, and the storm made landfall Oct. 29. From Oct. 27 through Nov. 5, the state said, Amy Hotels had 545 instances of price gouging, raising room rates as high as 150 percent in one case, where the nightly rate jumped to $199.99 from $79.99 before the storm.

Eric Wiafe will have a better idea than most recruits of what it's like to face Division I competition as he begins his football career at Rutgers. That is because the 2013 Egg Harbor Township graduate spent the fall attending Milford Academy in New Berlin, N.Y. The prep school has been an assembly line for Division I recruits, and Bill Chaplick has coached such players as Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, Denver Broncos and former Temple defensive lineman Terrance Knighton, and former Winslow Township running back Shonn Greene, now a member of the Tennessee Titans.

Coming off an emotional win last week over South Jersey's top-ranked Holy Spirit, Atlantic City again called on Isiah Graves and Dennis White in the second half of Monday's 62-44 over host Egg Harbor Township in a Cape-Atlantic League boys' basketball game. The Vikings trailed, 20-19, at halftime before Graves and White hit the Eagles with an offensive barrage after the break. Graves connected on two treys as he scored nine of his game-high 21 points in the third quarter. White was held to just four points in the first half, but poured in 14 more in the second to join Graves in double figures.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - In Holy Spirit coach John Iannucci's view, there were two problems for his football team in the Non-Public Group 2 title game on Sunday. One was DePaul Catholic, which showcased its speed, strength, and skill in a 35-16 victory over Holy Spirit. The other was Holy Spirit's own play. "We probably played our worst game," Iannucci said. "That's my fault. I didn't have us prepared to play. " On a snowy afternoon at Rutgers, senior quarterback Zach Bednarczyk, a Villanova recruit, ran 10 times for 108 yards and a touchdown and was 8 for 11 passing for 118 yards and another score for DePaul (10-2)
