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.
