The Williamstown special teams ran the Pennsauken punter out of the end zone, forcing a safety that gave the Braves an early two-point lead Saturday. It was all the defense needed. David Sanchez finished with four sacks, six tackles, and a forced fumble. Anthony Racobaldo picked off two passes. And Williamstown, ranked No. 14 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, won at Pennsauken, 2-0, in a WJFL interdivision defensive duel. In other WJFL interdivision games: Zaki Burroughs scored the eventual winning touchdown on a 3-yard run in the fourth quarter as host Palmyra edged Woodrow Wilson, 38-35.

If Interboro's odd-couple backfield tandem of Lamar Shaw and Naim Bey didn't already have a thunder-and-lightning-esque nickname before Saturday, someone needs to get on the case - soon. The pair rumbled and dashed for a combined 256 yards to lead the Bucs to a 41-20 win at Penn Wood in a Del-Val League football game. Shaw, listed at 5-foot-10 and 255 pounds, did most of the rumbling. Bey, an inch taller and listed at 90 pounds lighter, took care of the dashing. Shaw carried 19 times for 140 yards and two short-yardage touchdowns.

Isaiah Spencer did more than win a football game in the fourth quarter Friday night. He just might have saved Delsea's season. Spencer ran in a 29-yard score midway through the fourth and the Delsea defense made one last stand to hold off visiting Paul VI, 24-21, in nonleague action. Another loss would have made it very difficult for the two-time defending South Jersey Group 3 champion Crusaders (1-3) to return to the playoffs. Delsea led by 17-0 at halftime, but Paul VI (3-1)

West Chester Henderson struck for back-to-back touchdowns in the first quarter, including the eventual game-winning score, in a 21-7 victory Friday night over visiting Bishop Shanahan in a Ches-Mont National matchup. Henderson, The Inquirer's 10th-ranked team in Southeastern Pennsylvania, took the lead on Matt Ginacci's 22-yard touchdown. The Warriors then got a stop, and Noah Richard returned a punt 65 yards for a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Tre Green, who entered the game as the area's seventh-leading rusher, ran for 127 yards and added insurance with a touchdown in the third quarter to make the score 21-7.

Eleven months have passed since Penn walked off the football field victorious, a streak the Quakers hope to end Saturday when they open Ivy League play with a trip to Dartmouth (1-1) in Hanover, N.H. The Quakers, losers of six straight dating from last year, are seeking their first win since they defeated Yale, 28-17, last Oct. 26 at Franklin Field. The six-game losing streak is the longest in the 22-year career of retiring Penn coach Al Bagnoli. Last week, Villanova put up 567 yards of offense in a 41-7 victory.

Nick Thevanayagam threw 11 times Thursday night, but it was his legs that ultimately saved Cinnaminson. Thevanayagam ran in four touchdowns, including what proved to be the winner on a 1-yard plunge in the fourth quarter, to lead the host Pirates to a 25-22 nonleague victory over Hamilton. Thevanayagam rushed 13 times for 51 yards and threw for 68 yards on 7-for-11 passing. Aaron Elly paced the Pirates, who are ranked No. 18 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, with 137 yards on 20 carries.

For most backs, the 200-yard plateau is a rare feat. For Marple Newtown's Adrian Sapnas this season, it's just another night at the office. Sapnas surpassed 200 yards for the fourth time in six games Thursday night to lead Marple Newtown to a 24-13 victory at Radnor in a Central League football game. Sapnas rushed for 245 yards, including an 80-yarder in the third quarter that broke a 7-7 tie. He added a 44-yard TD run in the fourth. The senior has gone over 1,000 yards for the season.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 5. Watch 'em roll Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers at Jaguars. Coming off his best game of the season, Big Ben now gets to toy with the NFL's worst pass defense minus its best cornerback, Dwayne Gratz. The only worry is that Roethlisberger may take his foot off the accelerator early, but he will rack up plenty of yards and scores before that happens. Rashad Jennings, RB, Giants vs. Falcons. No defense is more generous to opposing runners than Atlanta's, which coughed up 241 yards and four TDs to the Vikings' backup running backs last week.

West Deptford will play at Haddonfield on Thursday night in a game with major Colonial Liberty and South Jersey Group 2 playoff implications. It also is a renewal of South Jersey's best football rivalry. That wasn't always the case, and that won't always be the case. But right now, it doesn't get any better than the Eagles vs. the Bulldogs. "I love it," Haddonfield senior Jake Robinson said of the rivalry. Here's one reason this is a unique rivalry: familiarity. From 2006 to 2013, the teams played 13 times, including five times in the South Jersey playoffs.

Heading into Thursday's game, it was hard not to feel good about my tight end matchup when I saw Larry Donnell in my opponent's lineup. After all, I had the option of Vernon Davis or Antonio Gates, while he was forced to sit Julius Thomas because of the bye week. By Friday, I was popping antacids, and my opponent was dishing out a heaping helping of smack talk. Enter Matt Asiata. When he plunged across the goal line for the third time Sunday, the tide had turned and my decision to draft Marshawn Lynch and Giovani Bernard back-to-back didn't cost me a Week 4 victory as expected.
