WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - The decisive goal was off a counterattack by the opponent. Hackettstown's Jared Leckberg chased down a long feed from Josh Weiss, found himself one-on-one with the keeper, and buried a shot that ended the Cinnaminson boys' soccer team's hopes of winning a state title. It was a brief, fleeting lapse in a game that Cinnaminson largely controlled throughout. It underscored one of soccer's harsh truths: The team that plays better doesn't always win. "I definitely think we were the better team today," said Cinnaminson coach Jason Meile after his team's 3-1 loss Sunday in the Group 2 boys' soccer state championship at Kean University.

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. "I don't think it's a failure," said board chairman Tom Ballance, president and chief operating officer of the Borgata. "I think it's a casualty of these incredibly difficult times.

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.

PRINCETON - The battle was going against the Americans. Gen. Hugh Mercer was knocked to the ground when his horse was shot out from under him. He was surrounded by advancing British troops and bayoneted seven times. American soldiers were falling back in disarray when "a tall man on a white horse could be seen galloping toward the scene of battle," wrote historian Richard M. Ketchum. Gen. George Washington had arrived. He rode between the lines, calling out to his men, "Will you give your general to the enemy?"

The singer-songwriter Matt Duke stood at the end of Sandra Morello's bed in the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, strumming his acoustic guitar and belting out one of his own tunes, "Needle and Thread. " Her head wrapped in a purple bandanna, Morello nodded along. In her arm was an IV delivering an immunosuppressant drug. "To sing your blues away," he serenaded the 43-year-old cancer patient, "and hope for better days. " Morello smiled and clapped. "It definitely makes you feel good," she said.
