The Lenape boys' basketball team has thrived this season in close, low-scoring games. Tuesday's big matchup with backyard rival Shawnee proved to be no different.

As one of his assistant coaches addressed Washington Township's players after a grueling 22-16 win yesterday, Tom Brown wore a stern look that said that there still are many, many yards to go in this football season. This much Brown could not deny, though: The Minutemen's start couldn't have been scripted better. A week ago, Township beat Cherokee, the defending Olympic Conference American Division champion. Yesterday, the team ranked eighth in South Jersey by The Inquirer went on the road and defeated Lenape, one of this year's favorites in the Olympic American.

Another player might have wondered, "Why?" Lizzie Kinkler figured, "Why not?" Kinkler, a senior midfielder, buried a left-footed shot from around 20 yards to lift Lenape to a 1-0 victory over Shawnee on Friday in the championship game of the South Jersey Group 4 girls' soccer tournament. "I was around the 18, and the ball came right to me," said Kinkler, a Wake Forest recruit. "I was going to cross it but I thought, 'Why not take a shot?' "I nailed it. " Kinkler's goal with 3 minutes, 45 seconds remaining in the second half was the difference in a hard-fought, well-played game between familiar rivals on a cold, clear afternoon on the Indians' grass field.

When Natalia Torosian and her Lenape teammates traveled to Bishop Eustace yesterday for an Olympic Conference interdivisional soccer match, the game took on a greater dimension. It wasn't about The Inquirer's No. 1-ranked team in South Jersey - Lenape - taking on No. 5 Eustace. It wasn't about the American Division, which Lenape leads, and the National, in which the Eustace Crusaders are undefeated. It was personal. The players from both high schools are on the same club teams and are highly competitive.

After the game, Joey Mercado was hoarse. "I'm a yeller out there," he said. "Drill sergeant" might be a more apt description. And something about the Lenape boys' lacrosse team came off almost like a military exercise in the second-seeded Indians' 18-4 trouncing of seventh-seeded Freehold Township Saturday morning in the second round of the South Jersey Group 4 tournament. It was more like a ceremony than a game. Everything was done in concert. Every movement was crisp.

For Joe Marino, the best thing about last Saturday's Diamond Classic opening game was the result: St. Joseph 9, Mainland 7. "That was unbelievable," Marino said. "I couldn't believe we did it. " But a close second was the Wildcats' method of victory: building a big lead, losing it, answering back and holding off still another rally by the heavily-favored Mustangs. "It shows we don't give up," Marino said. "We'll keep fighting. " Marino, a junior lefthander, is a good example of the Wildcats' spirit, according to coach Tom Carney.

It's been said that it's never good to focus on personal milestones in team sports. But for three games, Lenape's Carlee Braverman would look to the sideline and see her lacrosse teammates holding balloons and giant signs, ready to go all-out in celebration of her 100th career goal. After a while, the balloons can get to you.

This time next year, Conor Gaffney will be studying engineering at Lehigh University. He's not exactly sure what field, but he knows it suits his strengths in the classroom. Gaffney is analytical by nature. And not just in his studies. The mind-set also fuels his approach to winning faceoffs for the Lenape boys' lacrosse team, just as it will for the Mountain Hawks next season. Action in the faceoff circle can look almost barbaric - two players physically grappling for position of a ball that sits between them.

TOMS RIVER - Thirty fouls were called in the first half - a 15-15 split. Depending on your definition of basketball, it was either the ugliest or the scrappiest 16 minutes of the season for the Lenape girls' basketball team. Through two quarters, the Indians held superstar guard Kelly Campbell to just two field goals - virtually unheard of. Unfortunately for Lenape, she was also sent to the foul line six times, hitting 10 of 11 free throws in the second quarter alone. The Indians (31-3)
