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.

Abby Bah picked the right time to play the best game of his career. The junior center scored eight points, grabbed six rebounds, and played strong defense in helping the Haddonfield boys' basketball team to a 53-45 victory over Pitman on Saturday in the Tri-State Showcase at Bishop Eustace. "That was his breakout game in our 21st game," Haddonfield coach Paul Wiedeman said. Senior swingman Billy Griffin scored 13, with a trio of three-pointers, and senior forward Chris Biddle added 11 points and four assists for Haddonfield (20-1)

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.

Haddonfield has maintained its status as South Jersey's last unbeaten baseball team, but the Bulldawgs needed a final-inning comeback to preserve their perfect season. Drew Dark's one-out, bases-loaded RBI single capped a three-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning during a 5-4 win over Sterling in a Colonial Conference nail-biter Friday. Ranked No. 6 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, the Bulldogs are now 16-0. Sterling fell to 6-9. "I was determined to get on by hit or walk," Dark said.

The Burlington Township High basketball team did a lot of things right last night when it met Haddonfield for the South Jersey Group 1 championship. But the Falcons found out that more was required to defeat Haddonfield (29-0), the No. 1 team in The Inquirer's South Jersey Top 10. In front of a crowd of 1,800 at Collingswood, Haddonfield claimed its first sectional crown since 1973 with a 65-55 victory, and set a school record for wins in a season in the process.

A sheep on the loose in Haddonfield had kept police busy for days, with residents calling to report appearances of the animal, and officers trying - unsuccessfully - to catch it. That is, until Friday. A resident's tip brought police and an animal-control officer from Winslow Township - which has tranquilizer guns, unlike Haddonfield's animal-control unit - to a wooded area near the 800 block of Edge Park Drive. The animal-control officer searched the woods. Then, upon seeing the sheep around 1:30 p.m., the officer shot the tranquilizer from about 30 yards, according to Haddonfield Police Lt. Jason Cutler, who was also present.

The West Jersey Football League's historic expansion to include every team in South Jersey didn't make for much change in terms of division alignments. Three divisions contain strictly teams from the Cape-Atlantic League. Two divisions contain strictly teams from the Colonial Conference. There was some movement among existing WJFL teams to different divisions - Kingsway and Hammonton to the American; Eastern, Paul VI, and Cherry Hill East to the National; Camden and Camden Catholic to the Constitution, among other changes - but nothing too dramatic.

The first time Brendan Gilmartin really made his presence felt, a defender had his arms wrapped around Gilmartin's ankles. And the burly quarterback was dragging him. It was 4th and 14 on Haddonfield's first drive of the game. It was more a statement than anything. Gilmartim scrambled up the middle through a wide-open hole for the first 10 yards. The last four were all muscle. He wanted those yards. And he got them. So went the contest Friday night as Gilmartin's Haddonfield football team bulled over visiting Collingswood, 35-7, on opening night of the season for both teams.

As recently as 2013, the regular-season schedule for the St. Augustine Prep football team included games against rebuilding small-school programs such as Middle Township, Lower Cape May, and Pleasantville. "That was our freshman year," St. Augustine senior linebacker Dean Kolonich said. "Look at us now. " Look at everybody else, too. Dramatic change has come to South Jersey football since the formation of the West Jersey Football League for the 2010 season. The latest development is significant: This season marks the addition of the Cape-Atlantic League and the Colonial Conference to the West Jersey Football League, creating a 95-team superconference that includes every program in South Jersey.

Billions of microorganisms are creating a bright green sheen - and a potential hazard - at Hopkins Pond in Haddonfield. "Cyanobacteria are in the water," explains Mike Haberland, environmental and resource management agent with the Rutgers Cooperative Extension in Camden County. His dramatic photographs of the bacteria in full bloom, taken Thursday, led the county parks department to install warning signs about the "potentially harmful" organism. The bacteria release a toxin into the water when dying or damaged.

Bancroft Neurohealth's plan to spend $75 million to move its school and residences for children with autism and other developmental disabilities from Haddonfield, where it was founded in 1883, to Mount Laurel is a huge step. But it is only part of the tax-exempt organization's growth strategy, which also entails expanding its services and its reach into the community. Toni Pergolin, Bancroft's chief executive, described the new school, which will be more than three times bigger than the current building, as a potential "destination for the autism community.

Since retiring as a Haddonfield lawyer in 2007, William V. Eisenberg was a voluntary counsel for the Camden Center for Law and Social Justice. "In our family-law department, he worked with clients on child support, child custody," said Jeffrey S. DeCristofaro, the attorney who is the firm's executive director. The nonprofit firm deals mostly with immigration and domestic-violence problems. DeCristofaro came to know Mr. Eisenberg as a soccer coach for a Haddonfield recreation league, when the future lawyer was 8 or 9 years old, and then as a teenage file clerk in an Eisenberg law firm.

RIO DE JANEIRO - Day One of Olympic track and field was Almaz Ayana's time to sparkle. The 24-year-old Ethiopian lowered the world and Olympic records at 10,000 meters to 29 minutes, 17.45 seconds, crushing the field in blazing to the first track gold medal of the Games. It was Molly Huddle's day, too. The Notre Dame grad out of Elmira, N.Y., 31, ran one of the greatest distance races ever by a U.S. woman at the Games. Her sixth-place finish in 30:13:17 is an American record, and she trailed only two runners from Ethiopia and three from Kenya in winning the unofficial championship of the rest of the world beyond East Africa.

Sidewalk sale Haddonfield's August sidewalk sale has taken place longer than organizer Remi Fortunato can remember. As the retail recruiter for the Partnership for Haddonfield, Fortunato estimated that the borough's end-of-season tradition dated at least to 1969, the first summer Jay West bridal salon was in business. The event always begins on the first Thursday of the month - which, said Fortunato, never seems to stop early birds from seeking deals Wednesday evening. The sale ends Sunday.
