GLASGOW, Scotland - As a tough Jersey girl, Carli Lloyd wasn't about to go quietly into the night when she lost her starting job with the U.S. women's soccer team. Instead, she refocused herself and arrived at the Olympics on a mission, and the hard work showed when she came off the bench to score the winning goal in Wednesday's opening-round victory over France. Now the Delran native and Rutgers graduate is a starter again. With Shannon Boxx nursing an ailing right hamstring, Lloyd will patrol the midfield from the opening whistle Saturday when the Americans play Colombia.

Tonight, a town more accustomed to smokestacks than spotlights, more used to wrestling mats than red carpets, will get a rare chance to see itself on the big screen. Paulsboro residents will be among the first to see director Kevin Smith's long-anticipated film, Jersey Girl, starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Liv Tyler and the borough itself. The $35 million Miramax film, the story of a single father's relationship with his daughter, was shot partially here and in Philadelphia during the summer of 2002.

America has come to know little Hallie Eisenberg by her sweet, angelic face, but it's The Voice that has everybody talking about "The Pepsi Kid. " At the twitch of a vocal cord, the central Jersey native transforms herself into the likes of Isaac Hayes, Aretha Franklin and Marlon Brando. OK, she doesn't really change her voice; it's special effects. But it doesn't take away from the fact that - at just 6 - she's one of America's hottest commercial stars. "I think I will act for the rest of my life," she said from a Beverly Hills, Calif.

It's Take-Your-Daughter-to-Work-Day for Ollie Trinke, the music-industry publicist on daddy duty in Jersey Girl. Here at Center City's Hard Rock Cafe, on a crisp day in mid-October, Ben Affleck, as flack Ollie, is flustered and flailing in director Kevin Smith's romance - which, not-so-coincidentally, costars the actor's real-life paramour, Jennifer Lopez, as Ollie's wife. Sadly for those tracking the lovebirds' every flutter - the supermarket tabloids and weekly glossies are in bidding wars for photos of the hunk and his honey - today on the set it's Ben without Jen.

As she recalls, Maddie Morano was in second grade, and she had had enough of being on the sidelines. Seeing her older sister, Kasey, playing field hockey and watching all the other girls running around was too much for her to continue as a spectator. "I was just itching to get a stick in my hand," she said. And in the spring there was the similar itch for a bat. Morano gravitated to field hockey and softball at a young age, and her passion and skill only grew as the years went by. Her motor was nonstop then in both sports, and it still is now. As a senior at Eastern, Morano became one of the top field hockey players in the country and among the best softball players in South Jersey.
