The chatter in the stands before the game was that lightning was coming, no doubt about it. Long before the first raindrop, there was talk of when and what time the game would be rescheduled, because it was going to be rescheduled - that much was certain. Rain came. Lightning never did. Some things in life, it turns out, are more reliable than a weather forecast. Take the Shawnee running game, for instance. The Renegades' rushing attack gashed Kingsway for four quarters, leading them to a 25-19 road win on opening night of the 2013 football season.

Kingsway matched its win total of a season ago last night by scoring a 14-0 win over Woodstown in a Tri-County Royal Division football game. The Dragons were 2-7 last year, but the backfield combination of 6-foot, 177-pound senior Jerrell Bishop and 6-1, 181-pound junior Ben Liles sparked them to a win last night and a 2-0 record, 2-0 in the Royal Division. Visiting Woodstown fell to 1-1, 0-1. Bishop, who gained 253 yards last week against Pennsville, rushed for 127 yards on 22 carries and scored the game's two touchdowns last night.

The run that Kingsway went on in the first three minutes of yesterday's NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 championship told the story of its 64-50 win over Point Pleasant Boro. The Dragons won the tip-off, hit their first four shots, and were up 9-2 before the Panthers realized the game had started. An ensuing time-out allowed Point Pleasant Boro to compose itself enough to keep the game close in the first quarter. But aside from another strong run midway through the third quarter, the Panthers (19-7)

Kingsway boys' soccer coach John Green described his players' overtime loss to Clearview on Monday as akin to having their "hearts ripped out. " The game could have put the Dragons in a commanding lead in the Tri-County Conference. Instead, it ending up being something of a gut-check time for Kingsway. According to Green, his team showed what it was made of during practice Tuesday. "It was brilliant," Green said. "They were buzzing - they were very energetic. They couldn't wait to move forward.

Gloucester's hopes for an unbeaten season ended yesterday when Kingsway defeated the visiting Lions, 29-8. But this nonleague game was a lot closer than the score reflects, with two late interceptions by Kingsway (4-1) and a costly pass-interference call against Gloucester (4-1) making the difference. The Dragons also were helped by an outstanding performance by senior fullback Ed Yurgin, who ran for 224 yards and three touchdowns. Gloucester coach Leon Harris said he felt his team played tough but was bothered by injuries, especially one to star fullback Larry Conway, who was hampered by a hand injury.

Sean Lenahan didn't end up at the bottom of every pile last night, but but it sure must have seemed that way to the rain-soaked football fans at Memorial Stadium. The senior tailback carried the ball 44 times for 227 yards and two touchdowns, and Woodstown scored the last 17 points of the game to shock Kingsway, 24-21 in overtime. The Wolverines took a huge step toward earning their first playoff berth since 1989, improving to 5-1 overall, 3-1 in the Tri-County Conference Royal Division, and 2-1 in overtime.

As her team did, Alicia Lenhart had a lot of time. As her team did, she made the most of it. With the ball at her feet and no defenders in the vicinity late in the first half, Lenhart took a deliberate approach and scored the game's first goal to spark Kingsway to a 3-0 victory over Highland on Tuesday in South Jersey Group 3 girls' soccer action. "I knew I needed to relax," said Lenhart, a senior striker. "I just took my time. I knew my team was depending on me. " Juniors Rachel Rivell and Kerri Burns added goals and junior Maria Kirby made six saves to record the shutout for third-seeded Kingsway (13-5-2)

Kingsway sophomore point guard Rondell Gilmore only knows how to play at one speed, so it didn't matter that last night's Tri-County Royal Division game with Clearview was well in hand with under four minutes remaining. The Dragons were leading 64-41 in an eventual 69-48 win over Clearview, but Gilmore just couldn't go through the motions. So he tried to take a charge and got the worst of the encounter with Clearview's Brian Burke, who also lay on the ground for a few moments.

Saturday felt like a school day to Nick Droboniku. The Mainland pitcher went to bed before 10:30 on Friday night and was up at 7:15 the following morning. He got to school Saturday for an 8:15 bus to Deptford, where he started a Diamond Classic quarterfinal against Kingsway at 10:30. "I'm not a fan of the morning games," Droboniku said. All that said, if he was tired, you wouldn't have been able to tell. Just five minutes past noon - mere moments after he struck out a batter to strand the bases to seal Mainland's 3-2 win - Droboniku yelled and clenched his right fist.

It has been a season of big hits for Joe Massing and big wins for the Kingsway baseball team. But no hit made more of an impact - on a key game, the Dragons' season and coach Ian Enders' right hand - than Massing's home run in the first round of Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic last Saturday against Ocean City. "He about broke my hand rounding third," Enders said of Massing's celebratory slap. Massing's three-run home run in the first inning powered Kingsway to a 7-2 victory over Ocean City and propelled the Dragons into Saturday morning's second-round clash with Mainland at Deptford.

Despite donning the tools of ignorance for seven innings on a warm afternoon, Ross Micka figured he had a pretty easy job Thursday. "Catch the ball and throw it back," Micka, Williamstown's senior catcher, said of his workload during a Tri-County Conference Royal Division showdown with rival Kingsway. Micka and the rest of the Braves could rest easy because Denny Bentley was on the mound. Bentley, a junior left-hander, pitched a one-hitter with seven strikeouts as Williamstown took a big step toward clinching the division title with a 7-1 victory on the Braves' home field.

The bus ride home on April 15 wasn't merely quiet. "It was silent," Kingsway junior pitcher Devon Grippe said. The Dragons made some noise on Wednesday. Behind Grippe's powerful pitching and some timely hitting, Kingsway turned the tables on arch-rival Clearview with a 5-0 victory in a Tri-County Conference Royal Division clash of two of South Jersey's top softball teams. "We were very motivated to make up for the last game," Grippe said. "That fueled our fire. " Grippe, a junior right-hander, allowed four hits with one walk and five strikeouts.

The third time he broke his collar bone, it wasn't the physical pain or shock that bothered Jordan Dzierzgowski the most. He felt it right away. He knew it was broken. But what really hurt was the apparent logic that had settled in. "I just remember thinking that I knew the doctors were going to tell me that I couldn't play anymore, that this couldn't be just a coincidence and that I was prone to injury," he said. As it turns out, that thinking didn't hold up. Dzierzgowski, a senior midfielder for the Washington Township boys' lacrosse team, broke his collar bone three times in a nine-month span - a twisted stroke of fate that he persevered through.

This was a day when the young and old combined for yet another impressive win by the Kingsway softball team. It's been a recurring pattern for a team that should be more than competitive when the state tournament begins next month. Freshman left-hander Grace Fagan pitched a complete-game two-hitter, and senior centerfielder Isabella Bradian got three hits, including the 100th of her career Thursday, as the Dragons defeated host Gloucester, 4-1, in an interdivisional Tri-County Conference game.
