When Egg Harbor Township visits Lacey Township at 1 p.m. on Saturday for the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 football championship, the game will be a matchup of teams with different strengths. Egg Harbor Township (8-2) moves the ball primarily through the air, and generally uses its running game to keep the opposition off balance. Lacey Township (10-0) can pass the ball, but relies on a solid running game to provide the bulk of its offense. The two teams do have something in common - aggressive defense.

The Margate firefighter and lifeguard convicted of shoplifting from a Wawa last month must forfeit both jobs, an Egg Harbor Township municipal judge ruled Friday. Ashton G.

Funk was off-duty from his position as a firefighter and on the beach patrol when he was allegedly seen carrying away $7.98 worth of items without paying. Because the case involved a public employee, the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office took over the investigation and prosecution.
