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.

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - After the game, the crowd stood and chanted in unison. "EHT! EHT! EHT!" It was a final nod to the Egg Harbor Township softball team - a fiery, fearless group of girls that captivated an entire community. The team gathered in the outfield. And before the coaches could address them, the seniors - well-spoken and poised beyond their years - stood up, wiped away a few tears, and tried to put a wild, once-in-a-lifetime ride in perspective. "We finished this season 24-1.

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)

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.

After his baseline shot hit the net and fell short during yesterday's final of the South Jersey Interscholastic Tournament, Vinay Bhamidipati of Egg Harbor Township let out some audible frustration. "You're so good at this game," he exclaimed to himself, his voice loaded with sarcasm. "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.

Brandon Riggs didn't care that his team was the No. 12 seed in South Jersey Group 4. The Egg Harbor Township senior righthander didn't care that Williamstown was the No. 5 seed, as well as the defending champion. "The seeds, they don't mean anything," Riggs said after powering Egg Harbor Township to a 3-1 victory over Williamstown on Tuesday. "It's a new season in the playoffs. " With a sneaky fastball and sharp curve, Riggs allowed just one unearned run on five hits with six strikeouts and two walks.
