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.

In one narrow sense, it was a bad day for Devon Grippe, Gabrielle Bruno and the rest of the Kingsway softball team. The Dragons didn't play well. Their bats were silent and their fielding was ragged and they were eliminated from the South Jersey Group 4 tournament in a 12-2 loss to Rancocas Valley. But in every other way - in a larger and much more significant sense - it was a good day because it was one last chance to pull on that red-and-black uniform and play one more game for a team coached by Tony Barchuk.

Some say Kingsway is a Group 4 school with a Group 1 feel. When it was built, it was surrounded by miles of farmland along the southern border of Gloucester County. For decades, its small student body was mostly the sons and daughters of the people who tended that land. "But all of the sudden, it felt like over night, the school just took off," said Joe Galliera, athletic director at Kingsway from 2002 until his retirement in 2014. "Houses were being built all around us. One year, we'd graduate 200 seniors and we'd get 300 freshmen.

On the back of their jerseys is the word Ohana . "It's Hawaiian," Joel Scerbo said, "for family. " Plenty of teams preach family values and bonds among players and coaches. The Kingsway boys' lacrosse team is a bit more literal with its approach to that concept. Scerbo and his brother, Jay, are two key players for a Kingsway team in the midst of one of its best seasons in years. Their father, Jim Scerbo - previously a basketball and football coach at Cherry Hill West - is an assistant coach on the team.

By traditional standards, Mike Borucki was 8 for 9 at the plate as Cherokee won three games and took home the title in the 10th annual Grand Slam Classic baseball tournament this weekend. That's pretty good. By Cherokee's new standards, Borucki was 12 for 12 in "quality" at bats. That's even better. "You can't do better than perfect," Cherokee coach Marc Petragnani said of Borucki's work at the plate in victories over Millville, Northern Burlington, and Kingsway. Petragnani said the Chiefs "don't even use batting average" as a barometer of success at the plate anymore.

As a first, Kingsway softball has gone to a big-little system this season. The senior captains looked at it as the best way to get underclassmen, who make up a high percentage of the team, acclimated to the program, and its recent history. "We want them to feel really part of it, because their bats and their fielding are definitely as important as ours," said Devon Grippe, whose group includes sophomores Danielle Dominik, Amanda Harvey and Cat Knoll. "Everyone's a contributor, and we want them to know that.

The new Kingsway High School football coach was energetic and enthusiastic and adamant about a few things: His team would be physically tough, mentally tough and fundamentally sound. Oh, and the Dragons would run the football. This was 1979. This also was 2016. And if new Kingsway coach Mark Hendricks last weekend sounded a lot like new Kingsway coach Tony Barchuk in August of 1979 - sans the thick Brooklyn accent, of course - it probably was because football is football and coaching is coaching and teenage boys crave discipline and direction as much today as they did 37 years ago. Or 87 years ago. Some things don't change.

Long-distance shooting from Joey DiAntonio and Olin McClendon came in handy for host Cherry Hill East in the first round of the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 4 tournament on Tuesday. DiAntonio made three three-pointers and scored 14 points and McClendon hit two three-pointers and scored 12 points as the sixth-seeded Cougars held off No. 11 Kingsway, 45-42. Elsewhere in South Group 4, Justin Williams had 21 points, six rebounds, and five assists in No. 3 Eastern's 72-37 home victory over No. 14 Jackson Memorial.
