Well, at least Cameron Davis and Derek Patterson each snared an interception. Other than that, nothing much went right for Valley Forge Military Academy Saturday afternoon as the Cadets dropped a 14-0 decision to visiting Lawrenceville (N.J.), which executed its single-wing offense efficiently enough to control roughly three-quarters of the clock. Afterward, Valley Forge coach Mike Korom commended his defense for its effort, even though the Big Red collected 262 yards of total offense, 206 of it on the ground.

Sophomore goaltender Ashley Piszek finally received some help from her teammates after two halves of scoreless play, as Germantown Academy scored in the first minute of overtime to move past visiting Lawrenceville, 1-0, in a Wednesday nonleague field hockey game. Piszek made 24 saves to earn the shutout. The winning goal was scored by Allie Carrigan just 50 seconds into the extra frame. Carrigan buried a shot to the left of the cage after Catherine Perlmutter's centering pass had set her up in front.

Adam Payton surveyed the defense, then let his instincts take over. With a smooth style that never gave the appearance he was rushed, Payton sliced through two Peddie School defenders, left a third in his tracks with a crossover dribble, then scored on a scoop shot. It was a play no ordinary high school player could make. But then again, Payton has been playing at a higher level since entering the ninth grade. A 6-foot-4 junior, Payton is among the best players in South Jersey.

The emergence of the Valley Forge Military Academy offense in the last two games can be summed up in one name: Chonn Lacey. Lacey has started at quarterback in the last two weeks, leading the Trojans to a 43-14 rout of Freedom Academy on Oct. 11 and a 39-21 win at Lawrenceville (N.J.) on Saturday. The Valley Forge postgraduate completed 15 of 26 passes for 274 yards and five touchdowns against Lawrenceville. Lacey's play - he also threw two touchdown passes and ran for another against Freedom Academy - was just what the doctor ordered for a team that had scored only 30 points through five games.

Adam Payton, who was among the best freshman basketball players in South Jersey last season, has transferred from Burlington Township to Lawrenceville Prep. A 6-foot-1 point guard, Payton averaged 12.5 points and was a first-team all-Burlington County League Freedom Division choice. He played in the first 19 games, then missed the rest of the season because of a chipped bone in his right wrist. "Adam got a scholarship to Lawrenceville and decided to go there," Township coach Jay Flanagan said.

The Lawrenceville (N.J.) School football team used a single-wing offense against Episcopal Academy on Saturday, but the Big Red didn't have a prayer with Toebe Hinckle patrolling the secondary. Hinckle intercepted 3 passes to lead the host Churchmen to a 28-3 nonleague win. Lawrenceville turned the ball over 8 times, as Hinckle and the Episcopal defense feasted on an offense seen rarely since leather helmets went out of style. "It was kind of interesting, but it seemed real easy to play against," Hinckle said.

Keith Braxton believes he's a Division I college basketball player. He's going to take another year to prove it. Braxton, a Delsea senior and first-team all-South Jersey selection, plans to spend next year at the Lawrenceville School as a post-graduate. He hopes the experience will lead to a Division I scholarship offer. "I didn't want to give up on my dream of playing at the Division I level," Braxton said on Thursday night.

LAS VEGAS - The tech celebration that distracted some in this city last week from gambling and cavorting is best known as the Consumer Electronics Show. But for the energetic entrepreneurs who push inventions and start-ups here every January - more this year than ever - CES might as well be called the Field of Dreams. Their hope is that if they build it, customers will come, and with them some measure of success - whether they seek fortune, fame, or the satisfaction of improving other people's lives along with their own. This year's crop of inventions is heavily seeded with powerful and inexpensive sensors that can turn just about anything into connected, gee-whiz technology.

Omar Sharif Cash spent nearly two hours Wednesday trying to explain to a Philadelphia jury why he had to kill Muliek Ronald Brown. It took jurors all of 35 minutes Thursday to decide they didn't believe him, finding Cash guilty of first-degree murder in the 2008 slaying outside a Frankford car wash. On Tuesday, the same jury will begin hearing evidence to decide whether Cash should be sentenced to death or life in prison without chance of parole. Cash, 31, had become almost legendary in law enforcement for escaping conviction.

INSIDE Episcopal Academy's Dixon Athletic Center, which sits on the school's sprawling Newtown Square campus, a shrewd Evan Butts sat in head football coach Todd Fairlie's office trying to skillfully answer a simple question. Last week, Butts caught a 19-yard touchdown pass with just 31 seconds left that pulled Episcopal within 48-47 of Lawrenceville. The 6-4, 225-pound tight end was asked whether the play was drawn up specifically for him. "No, it wasn't really designed . . . " he started to say. "Yes, it was," interrupted Episcopal offensive coordinator David Gueriera, who looked up from his laptop and added emphatically, "if there was single coverage on him we were going to him. " A sly smile slithered across Butts' face.
