Liam Peck heard the ball hit the post, and his hopes rose. Then he heard something else, and his heart sank. "I heard them cheering, and I knew we had lost," said Peck, Moorestown's junior goalie. All over the field, Moorestown players fell to the turf in dismay as West Morris scored with 4.3 seconds left in the Group 3 state championship game to emerge with an 8-7 victory on Wednesday night. "It's a heartbreaker," Moorestown junior standout Frankie LaBetti said. "We gave everything we had for 48 minutes, and we just came up short.

Drew Wilden is a powerful lefthander with darting fastball and a sharp curve. Derek Wakeley is a clever righthander with a tailing fastball and a slick slider. Together, they are a formidable combination on the mound for the West Deptford High School baseball team. For the second postseason game in a row, Wilden and Wakeley split the workload and led the Eagles to victory in the South Jersey Group 2 tournament. Wilden and Wakeley combined on a three-hit shutout with 13 strikeouts Tuesday as West Deptford beat visiting Audubon, 8-0, in the sectional semifinals on a hot, sunny afternoon at Union Field.

The island of Jamaica sometimes is called the Sprint Factory of the World. Williamstown seems to be vying for that title in South Jersey. "Sprint capital," Williamstown coach Dwayne Dobbins said after the Braves produced the 100-meter winners in the boys' and girls' meets at the South Jersey Group 4 track and field championship Friday night. Williamstown senior Jared Nicholas "came from nowhere" to capture the 100 in 10.70 seconds at Egg Harbor Township High School. Moments earlier, Williamstown junior Bria Mack broke a nine-year-old meet record set by one of South Jersey's most decorated sprinters to capture the girls' title in a blistering time of 11.68.

Since Wednesday, Jarett Baker said he's been congratulated almost everywhere he goes. It comes with the territory when you're a member of the Clearview boys' lacrosse team. The program is a community unto itself. The team is like a fraternity. Generations of players are linked. They come back year after year, helping out at practice, dotting the stands and sidelines at games. It's the kind of support coach Rob Rieck said has led to the consistency of his program. And it's why Baker's role in one of the biggest wins in program history isn't going unnoticed.

Rich Racobaldo is starting to feel better. Not coincidentally, so is the Washington Township baseball team. "Perfect timing," Racobaldo said after leading the Minutemen to their second consecutive upset victory in the South Jersey Group 4 tournament. Racobaldo, a junior righthander, allowed two hits in four scoreless innings, and 11th-seeded Washington Township sent 12 batters to the plate in an eight-run fourth inning Thursday en route to a 13-1 victory over third-seeded Cherry Hill West.

Eastern centerfielder Maddie Morano was glad the ball was hit to her with the game on the line. "I just had a bunch of adrenaline in me at that point," she said. Morano also had one pretty good throw left in her arm, one that would vault the Vikings into the South Jersey Group 4 semifinals. Morano's throw after a fairly deep fly out by Rachel Edwards nailed the runner at home for a game-ending double play Wednesday as second-seeded Eastern beat No. 7 seed Washington Township, 2-1, in a South Jersey Group 4 quarterfinal between Olympic Conference American Division heavyweights.

Gares earned the win by allowing two hits to go with six strikeouts in five innings. Scott entered the game in the bottom of the sixth inning and struck out one batter in earning a two-inning save.

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.

New day. New field. Old approach. Old result. "We had to get back to the way we played previous games," Clearview coach Rocco Cornacchia said after his team's weather-delayed, 7-6 victory over Rancocas Valley on Tuesday in the first round of the South Jersey Group 4 baseball tournament. Junior shortstop Tim Dezzi delivered the game-winning hit with an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth and senior lefthander Kenny Mendoza earned the pitching victory with two innings of scoreless relief for top-seeded Clearview (17-4-1)

Billy Jackson knew this wasn't a typical playoff opener between a No. 15 seed and a No. 2 seed. The Highland senior second baseman knew that seeds and records and recent history don't mean a whole lot when his school plays Triton in any sport. "It's a sister school," Jackson said. "Our fans know their fans, the players know each other. "There's so much between the two schools. You knew it would be like this. " With Jackson and senior shortstop Collin Bishop combining for five RBIs out of the top two spots in the lineup, Highland survived a serious scare from Triton and advanced with a 7-6 victory Monday in the first round of the South Jersey Group 3 tournament.
