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.

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 skeletal remains found in an Atlantic County creek last week were identified yesterday as those of a 14-year-old Egg Harbor Township girl, authorities said. Toni Nicole Yoder's mother had reported her missing Aug. 28. Her bones were found in Conover Creek about a quarter-mile from where she had been staying off and on with her grandmother, Atlantic County Prosecutor Jeffrey S. Blitz said. A Pleasantville public works crew discovered the partially submerged skeleton Feb. 25 while clearing trash from the creek, which runs through the Pleasant Acres adult community just north of the Atlantic City Expressway.

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.

Luke Petela was more than 2,500 meters into his 3,200-meter race Saturday when he looked over his right shoulder. The Haddon Township senior wasn't checking to see how far the nearest competitor was behind him. He already knew. Petela turned to teammate Owen Long, who had stayed within a stride of him from the start. The two confirmed they would flip spots to take the wind off Petela. Long eventually told Petela to take the win, his third South Jersey Group 1 victory of the weekend at Egg Harbor Township.

Olin McClendon never expected to be in this position. When his Cherry Hill East teammate Jake Silpe fired a three-pointer to win the game, the ball hit nothing but backboard. McClendon, a 6-foot junior, was there to grab the rebound and lay it in, forcing overtime. After neither team scored in the first extra period, the Cougars took over. With Silpe providing another vintage performance, East defeated Cherokee, 48-39, in double overtime Monday in a wild South Jersey Group 4 final. It was the second consecutive sectional title for East, which also beat Cherokee in last year's championship game.

Out in the casino diaspora, the workers from Atlantic City tend to want to keep a low profile. They know how it can turn out, turn sour, end abruptly. Those who lost jobs - some 8,000 in 2014 - or saw the writing on the wall in Atlantic City and were able to find work elsewhere have moved on. When necessary, they also have moved, sometimes leaving their families in New Jersey. They're now at casinos in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Florida, Connecticut, Las Vegas, Detroit, even Wisconsin.

There's a decent chance that the first two finals of the Region 8 wrestling tournament on Saturday will look a little bit similar. After the quarterfinals on Friday at Egg Harbor Township, Gateway twins Dante Mininno (the No. 1 seed at 106 pounds) and Antonio Mininno (No. 8 at 113) are still alive. So are Kingsway freshman Quinn Kinner (No. 2 at 106) and his brother sophomore Trace Kinner (No. 2 at 113). Antonio Mininno pulled the first big upset of the quarterfinals when he rallied to defeat top-seeded Luis Rivera of Buena, 4-3. He'll have to get past No. 4 Anthony Duca (Paulsboro)
