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.

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.

"Thank you," replied his opponent, Gateway's Matt Coin, who was at that moment blanking Bhamidipati in the first set. It was the only time Coin talked to Bhamidipati, who talked throughout the match.

The caliber of football is strong in the Diamond State. Egg Harbor Township discovered that last night in a season-opening 20-7 loss to visiting William Penn of Delaware in a nonleague game played in Egg Harbor Township. Ranked No. 8 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, Egg Harbor Township never moved the ball consistently against a William Penn team that lost to eventual state champion Newark, 6-0, last year in the semifinals. Meanwhile, William Penn (1-0) showed that it is a serious contender to end Newark's reign as five-time Delaware Division I state champion.
