Asked if he'd spent much time on the grass field at Moorestown stadium over the last several years, Damon Legato paused, looked around, and seemed to take it in one last time. "Nope," he said. "This is actually my first time back. " Legato, first-year coach of the Haddonfield boys' lacrosse team, was a decorated player for Moorestown in the early 1990s. He coached the team from 2000 to '05, leading the Quakers to South Jersey's first boys' lacrosse state championship in 2001.

Led by strong run defense that didn't allow a first down until midway through the third quarter and a balanced offense, Haddonfield knocked off Woodbury, 25-6, Friday night in Colonial Conference football. Haddonfield controlled the game from the start, as Woodbury did not record a first down until about seven minutes remained in the third. "Our players were very disciplined in following our game plan," Haddonfield coach Frank DeLano said. Haddonfield, ranked 12th in South Jersey by The Inquirer, wasted no time getting on the scoreboard.

Frank DeLano knows history as well as football. The Haddonfield coach knows his team had not beaten Camden in 80 years before a 45-19 victory in the South Jersey Group 2 semifinals on Nov. 23. He knows his team was playing Woodstown for the first time since 1928 in Saturday's South Jersey Group 2 title game. "We're just a little cog," DeLano said of his program's place in the big wheel of South Jersey football history. But since the creation of the state playoff system in 1974, there has never been a team quite like Haddonfield in 2013.
