WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - After 80 minutes of lopsided soccer, one question lingered: How did only four shots get past Haddon Township goalie Kieran Burns? In Sunday's Group 1 state title game, the Haddon Township boys' soccer team met a speedy, aggressive, technically sound Harrison team that it could not contain. The Blue Tide pummeled Haddon Township in a 4-0 victory on the turf at Kean University. But for Burns, the team's sophomore keeper, the game was a clear indication of the bright future awaiting the burgeoning star, who allowed four goals but saved 12 shots in an acrobatic, gutsy performance.

Before a big play and after every big save, Becca Hall smacked her stick against the crossbar and the posts. It's a trademark that suits the feisty goalkeeper. Saturday night, Hall's intensity - her bashing of the cage around her - was the rallying cry of an inspired effort by the Collingswood field hockey team. And to the last second of a tough loss, Hall was still battling, her teammates still pressing. "They just kept fighting, regardless of what was going on out there," Collingswood coach Valerie Dayton said after her team's 2-1 loss to Shore Regional in the Group 1 state field hockey championship at Bordentown.

Around lunchtime on a warm day last week, a gray van pulled to the side of a wooded road in Browns Mills and honked three times. The silent woods seemed empty. Then, a figure in a hooded black sweatshirt peered out from the autumn foliage. To the right, a man in a canvas jacket seemed to rise out of the ground. His quizzical scowl softened when he saw the van, and he turned and shouted something behind him. In moments, shabbily dressed men in groups of two and three were filing up a narrow path barely visible from the road.

ATLANTIC CITY - Is Do AC done? The Atlantic City Alliance - the $30 million-a-year, casino funded, legislatively mandated marketing organization - appears headed for extinction. The alliance board, composed solely of casino executives, voted unanimously this week to ask the New Jersey Legislature to do away with the Do AC group.

The rich are getting richer and the poor are wasting away. Hundreds of representatives of city arts organizations at a meeting Wednesday night heard that unsettling, if not surprising, message about Philadelphia's cultural sector. According to data gathered by University of Pennsylvania researchers, the city experienced an "explosion of inequality" in the cultural world from 1997 to 2011. Despite talk of growth and the economic power of the arts, the cultural profile is at best scarred and pitted, particularly beyond Center City.
