Two of the largest mortgage lenders based in the Philadelphia region are now one. Gateway Funding Diversified Mortgage Services L.P., Horsham, bought the assets of Arlington Capital Mortgage Corp., Bensalem, Gateway's chief executive Bruno P. Pasceri said yesterday. The deal gives privately held Gateway - which had previously taken the painful slowdown in the mortgage industry as a chance to expand through the purchase of offices in Massachusetts, Arizona and Seattle - more than 1,000 employees.

Two potential double-play balls told the story of yesterday's South Jersey Group 2 baseball semifinal between Gateway and Audubon. One allowed Audubon to escape a no-out, bases-loaded jam in the first inning unscathed. Another opened the floodgates for a six-run Audubon outburst in the second. After dodging an early bullet, the Green Wave parlayed hot hitting and shoddy Gateway defense into a 13-3 five-inning knockout of the Gators. Audubon, The Inquirer's No. 3 team in South Jersey, advanced to Friday's South Jersey group final against Pennsville at Cherry Hill East.

Perhaps more than any other South Jersey team, you can learn all you need to know about the Haddonfield girls' soccer team from watching it execute a set piece. And in Tuesday night's 3-0 win over Gateway, there were plenty of set pieces. Three, in fact, led to goals in the first 11 minutes, allowing the Bulldogs to cruise to victory on senior night for the team's 13 graduating players. "Big games at this level are decided by restarts," said Haddonfield coach Glenn Gess, whose Bulldogs (13-0)

Brent Rubena doesn't see himself as a No. 9 hitter, and he sure didn't act like one in the biggest game of his young career. The sophomore outfielder broke a 3-3 tie with a sacrifice fly in the top of the seventh inning as second-seeded Gateway defeated top-seeded Pitman, 4-3, yesterday for the South Jersey Group 1 baseball championship. Rubena went 1 for 2 with a run scored and the RBI in helping Gateway win its second sectional title. The Gators (17-5) will face Central Jersey champion David Brearley at 4 p.m. Tuesday in a state semifinal at Rider.

The back pain was constant. His knee? It was throbbing through 45 minutes of soccer Tuesday at Haddon Township. Anthony Colofranson makes three weekly trips to a chiropractor for an injury that the doctors have yet to pinpoint, but he refuses to miss playing time for Gateway. Dreaming of moments such as Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win makes it easy to play through the pain. Colofranson played the second half like a man possessed, using his incredible speed to outrun Haddon Township defenders and his nerve to put the ball in the back of the net. In total, the senior forward netted four goals, including the equalizer and the winner, making the pain he felt worthwhile.

As a rule, singles players get the attention. A lot of it this season has gone to players such as sisters Kim and Kelly LaMaina of Haddonfield; Moorestown's Maureen and Jen Canuso - who're also sisters - and Elsa Tchourumoff of Lenape. But there is some important tennis being played in the doubles matches. One of the area's better players is senior Amanda Widas of Gateway, who lifted her record this season to 9-0 at first doubles and her career mark to 66-7, a school record in doubles.

The Pennsauken Mart is finally history. The controversial demise of the mart came April 26. A new era will begin, according to Camden County Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli. Pennsauken will be the "gateway to Camden County. " Over the years, plans for the site included a civic center housing a hockey arena and a condo complex for people 55 and older, complete with a boathouse, lake and underground parking. They were nixed. Now, according to an article by Inquirer reporter Ed Colimore, the property will become housing, a commercial space and possibly a hotel ("State will provide county $16.5 million for mart site," April 25)

Before the game, Gateway girls' soccer coach Shawn Cunning noted that Shore Regional's record wasn't reflective of its play. "They beat Metuchen" in the Central Jersey championship game, Cunning said, referring to a Metuchen team that had a 21-1-1 record. "They must be good. " Shore didn't look like a team that entered play with a 9-8-2 record in Tuesday's Group 1 state semifinal against Gateway. Led by junior striker Samantha McDonough, Shore scored a 3-0 victory over Gateway on the artificial turf at Haddonfield.

A competitive Colonial Conference football opener last night between host Gateway and Collingswood was overshadowed by an injury to Collingswood senior tackle Jim Pierson. Gateway won the game, 13-6, but both coaches were subdued afterward, showing concern for the injured player. The 6-foot-2, 204-pound Pierson was injured while making a tackle with 7 minutes, 5 seconds left in the game. He was taken by ambulance to Underwood Memorial Hospital in Woodbury after suffering what Collingswood coach Bob Barikian described as a neck injury.
