BASKING RIDGE, N.J. - Tim Gushue thought for a moment before stating the obvious. "There's really nothing we could have done differently," the Shawnee boys' lacrosse coach said. "If there was, believe me, we would have - we would have gotten off the bus differently if we thought it would have helped. " In Saturday's South Jersey Group 3 final, Shawnee recorded arguably the biggest upset in the history of its program with a double-overtime win over Moorestown. Wednesday's 7-3 loss to Ridgewood in the state final at Ridge amounted to a lesson in just how tough it is to repeat that kind of magic in back-to-back lacrosse games.

OCEAN CITY - Shawnee's game is floor balance, tempo control, and protection of the basketball. Two out of three wasn't bad for the Renegades in a ragged battle with South Jersey Group 4 rival Atlantic City Sunday in the Ocean City PBA Tipoff Tournament. Shawnee never got a handle on its turnover problems, but the Renegades slowed the pace, worked for open shots, and rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit for a 50-49 victory. "It was a sloppy game," said Shawnee senior guard Don DiVirgilio, who had eight of his 10 points and both of his assists in the second half.

From about 15 yards back, Tommy O'Neill reared back and rifled a shot past Shawnee lacrosse goalie James Bickel. The goal, early in the third quarter, gave St. Augustine a lead it never lost. After the score, a couple of Shawnee players walked toward the sideline, shaking their heads and pointing out the obvious. "That was a rip," they concluded. Nothing much you can do about that. The Hermits didn't look particularly polished in their 14-7 home win over the Renegades on Thursday night.

Owen Demmerly said he wasn't counting toward 200 goals. His teammates took care of that for the Shawnee senior. "That's 199, Owen," Shawnee boys' lacrosse players yelled after Demmerly scored an unassisted goal early in the second quarter of Tuesday's state Group 3 tournament game against visiting Kingsway. Early in the third quarter, Demmerly became the first player in Shawnee history to score 200 goals. He added No. 201 for good measure in leading the Renegades to an 11-4 victory.

Very few people thought that midway through the season, Shawnee against Clearview would be a game for first place in the West Jersey Football League National Division. While Shawnee's inclusion is no surprise, the fact that Clearview, a team that went 2-8 last season and wasn't predicted to be significantly improved, was playing for first place seemed a little on the startling side. To everybody, of course, but Clearview. In this season in which there have been several surprises, it is difficult finding a bigger one than Clearview, which moved into sole possession of first place with Friday night's 20-14 win over visiting Shawnee.

Occasionally, the call could be heard coming from the Moorestown sideline: Keep him left. Don't let him go to his right. "They thought I couldn't do it," Jake Dean said. "They were forcing me left all game because they thought I couldn't score with my left hand. But I did it. " Out of a timeout with 3 minutes, 48 seconds left in double overtime, Dean sprinted down the left wing toward Moorestown goalie Dan Willis. And with his left hand - his supposed weak hand - the Shawnee midfielder beat one of the state's top goalies, giving the Renegades a 4-3 win over heavily favored top seed Moorestown in Saturday's South Jersey Group 3 boys' lacrosse final.

Alex Mourtos had a chance to make the first catch of his career in the second quarter. He dropped the football. "I thought it was all over," Shawnee's soft-spoken senior wide receiver said. Not this night. Not this cool, clear autumn evening when there was magic in the air - and maybe, just maybe, an angel in the end zone. Mourtos got another chance. He turned the first catch of his career into the biggest moment in recent Shawnee football history. Mourtos' 14-yard touchdown reception on a fourth-and-4 play with 26 seconds remaining lifted Shawnee to a 21-17 victory over previously undefeated Williamstown in a West Jersey Football League thriller Friday night.

Jake Dean's specialty has been his versatility. According to Shawnee football and lacrosse coach Tim Gushue, Dean is the "last of a breed" because of his three-sport excellence at a large school with outstanding athletic programs. But it's fitting that, as Dean's wide-ranging and highly successful career has narrowed to its final days, the 6-foot athlete is preparing to play his biggest game in his best sport. Dean, a senior midfielder, will lead Shawnee into Wednesday night's Group 3 boys' lacrosse state final against North Jersey champion Ridgewood at Ridge.

Joe DiBuonaventura's name is kind of a mouthful. But if Thursday's performance is any indication, it's one opponents are going to learn before long. DiBuonaventura's three-run triple in the sixth inning keyed Holy Spirit's 11-9 upset at St. Augustine in a Cape-Atlantic American baseball game. The bases-clearing triple from the junior rightfielder made it 11-4, and Holy Spirit hung on to give The Inquirer's No. 3-ranked team in South Jersey its first loss of the early season. "It's a boost," Holy Spirit coach Bob Soifer said.
