It was a game with more punts than completed passes. It was old-school football, played mostly between the tackles and between the 30-yard lines. It was a black-and-blue ballet. "It was brutal," Shawnee running back Anthony DiOrio. "A slugfest," Hammonton coach Pete Lancetta called it. In the end, Shawnee emerged with a 10-7 victory over Hammonton in the first round of the South Jersey Group 4 tournament before a large crowd at the Blue Devils' field Friday night. The sixth-seeded Renegades (6-3)

For someone who lived for St. Joseph's football, nothing got Matt Roberts more stoked than its annual clash with crosstown rival Hammonton. And so on the day that the memory of the former player and coach was honored in a pregame ceremony, it seemed fitting that his beloved alma mater showed the heart that defined Roberts' 32 years. Playing on a heavily taped right ankle, sophomore running back James Hargrave rushed for 102 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the second half to send St. Joseph past visiting Hammonton, 21-14, in front of a capacity crowd that framed the field.

Before the game, on the sideline, some Hammonton football players said, "There will be no 36 tonight. " They were referring to Clearview's scoring average in the first three games. Since Hammonton had yielded only a third of that total combined in its first four games, it was a pretty good bet that the Blue Devils would make good on their pregame vow. And they did. Continuing a season-long dominance on defense, efficiency on offense, and proficiency on special teams, Hammonton defeated visiting Clearview, 31-6, Friday night in a West Jersey Football League National Division game.

Talk before the game centered on history being made. "We'd been in the Cape-Atlantic League," Hammonton coach Pete Lancetta said, pausing to think for a moment, "since the Cape-Atlantic League started. " Some considered the move to the West Jersey Football League a venture into uncharted territory for Hammonton, a staple of the Cape for decades. It didn't show on Friday night. It was a new era, sure. But it didn't look new. And it didn't feel very new, either. The Blue Devils' 10-0 win over Kingsway on opening night for both teams was vintage Hammonton.

Two weeks removed from setting the school's single-game rushing record, Millville sophomore Rob Ennis continued his strong play on Wednesday night. The Thunderbolts won, 20-14, over visiting Hammonton in a Cape-Atlantic League football game behind two Ennis rushing touchdowns. Ennis dashed for 44 yards on the game's first play from scrimmage and then capped the drive with a 6-yard rush. Late in the third quarter, the Thunderbolts trailed by two and again turned to Ennis, who scampered 14 yards for his second touchdown and the game's final score.

Two teams in the Cape-Atlantic League have unblemished American Conference records, and those two teams will clash tonight in Linwood. Mainland (5-1 overall, 4-0 conference) will greet visiting Hammonton (6-0, 6-0) with all of the appropriate aggression that a Group 4 school can muster. Hammonton, which is in Group 3, will strive to accumulate a bonanza of power points that a victory over a large school yields. "Any time you play a bigger school it's a tremendous challenge," Hammonton coach Pete Lancetta said.

David Sanchez might as well have been marching. Four rows of teammates trailed the burly Williamstown defensive lineman, who walked alone, holding a Williamstown football flag as a color guard would. When cheerleaders stand at the 20-yard line before a game, stretching out a giant paper banner, most football teams burst through it, making a grand entrance. Sanchez didn't run through the banner - he marched through it, flag first, teammates behind him. It was militaristic.

It took Zach Warren 30 pitches. It took Barry Buchowski one swing. Warren, the St. Augustine Prep junior pitcher, took the long road to his comfort zone in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over Hammonton in a Cape-Atlantic American Division I game on the Hermits' home field. Buchowski, the St. Augustine senior catcher, got there with one short, sweet swing. "I didn't think it was out," Buchowski said of his fifth-inning home run that provided the margin of victory for St. Augustine (4-0, 2-0 division)

When Jon Vega was in eighth grade, he tried football for the first time. "They made me a running back at first," Vega recalled. "But I didn't know how to hold the football. " Vega moved to Hammonton from Puerto Rico as a seventh-grader. The next year, he decided to try out for the youth football team because it seemed like such a popular sport in the town. He was fast. He was athletic. But he was a little short of know-how. "I had no idea how to play," Vega said. "But I liked it. I liked it right away.

Jim Donio feels theater in his bones, even if he's never delivered a dramatic monologue or sung in a musical. "Not yet, at least," says Donio with a laugh. A longtime Hammonton, N.J., entrepreneur in the produce-shipping business, Donio loves to show off his town as a destination point - and he also loves to present high-quality, adventurous theater. He has become the managing director of the Eagle Theatre - a historic, 100-year-old live theater space that closed in 1929 and reopened in 2009.

Imagine the strong, proud engine of a steam train, the visible crankshafts and gears like rippling muscles driving the wheels as it pulses along the tracks. It pulls a row of polished passenger cars, inlaid with wood and handcrafted upholstery, and teeming with people, well-dressed and well-mannered, as they embark on a three-week passage across the country. That image sprang to mind after seeing the Eagle Theatre's sincere production of Our Town, Thornton Wilder's part homage to, part indictment of small-town life in the first two decades of the 20th century.

When the Japanese army invaded the Philippines in December 1941, Engracio Celis Balita was 17 and, as a member of his high school's ROTC, endangered. Not long after the invasion, the Japanese hanged the husband of one of his sisters. So, to protect Engracio, the Balita family sent him and his brother, Julian, to hide in the Luzon Island city of Baguio. "He didn't graduate from high school until he was 22," his wife, Virginia, said. And when he entered the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, she said, "he wanted to study law, but his mother said, medicine, because in that culture you did what your parents wanted.
