"Both coach Preston and (assistant) coach (Dave) Stanton reminded us of that before we came out for the match," said Township junior Brian Botcheos, who raised his season record to 9-3 with a 7-4 win over Brian Scioli at 152 pounds.

Bryan Friedrich looked as if he had just been in a prize fight. Eyes dazed and a cut between his eyebrows, the Haddon Township boys' soccer player was battered, but not beaten. Like a heavyweight contender, Friedrich battled back from a knockdown to deliver the shot that knocked Middle Township out of the South Jersey Group 2 playoffs. After suffering what was believed to be a slight concussion late in the first half, the senior scored a goal with 5 minutes, 5 seconds remaining to lead the Hawks to a 2-1 quarterfinal victory at the Panthers' field yesterday.

The summer runs were done not only for bonding, but also so Haddon Township's football team could improve on a difficult 2-8 season of 2011. So during the summer, the team ran together around the local communities, and one trek took them past Collingswood High. Every time the players passed the high school, it served as a reminder of what went wrong in 2011 and what could be rectified this year. Last season, Collingswood defeated the Hawks, 8-3, and so that was the only reminder the players had during those summer runs.

A four-acre tract donated by the Rohrer family to Haddon Township for use as a library was the center of controversy last night when the donor, Linda M. Rohrer, complained that the Township Commission had failed to act on her offer. Democratic Mayor William J. Park Jr. promised that the commission would reach a decision on developing the site within 30 days, and denied that the commission, which has a 2-1 Democratic majority, was deliberately stalling on the library. More than 75 residents turned out to listen and, in some cases, to comment on the community's need for a new library.

Storms that slammed the region Saturday afternoon disrupted PATCO service, the Delaware River Port Authority said. At Westmont Station in Haddon Township, damage to equipment knocked the track signaling system offline, DRPA spokesman Mike Williams said. (The storm-related damage was initially believed to be caused by a lightning strike, which Williams later said was inaccurate.) Service was delayed up to 30 minutes in both directions while repair work continued. Shortly before 9 p.m., Williams said the system was returning to its normal schedule, with residual delays.

Haddon Township resident Dan Angelucci spotted the crude wooden sign from a distance as he walked his terrier, Toby, near the PATCO High-Speed Line around 7 Thursday morning, and was uneasy about what it might say. "I was like, 'Oh, man, I hope this isn't a racist sign,' " Angelucci, 28, said in an interview. "Of course it was. " The sign read: "Mexicans go back where u b long get out wetbacks," followed by the name "Donald Trump," all written in black marker. Angelucci said he reported the sign to Haddon Township police, and it was removed about 20 minutes later.

Alex Law was still too young to serve in Congress when he started running for it in 2014 - a year and a half before he turned 25 in March. And then he got clobbered in Tuesday's Democratic primary. Unlike his First Congressional District opponent, U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross, the brash NYU grad from Voorhees possessed neither a political resumé nor a political machine. But Law, with a face made for Facebook, quickly became a savvy and sassy presence on social media. He refused to shut up, publishing anti-Norcross screeds on platforms such as the Huffington Post.
