John Majane hoped for more than a decade that his daughter, who was 15 when he last saw her in Moorestown, N.J., had simply run away. But Carolyn Majane was pretty, popular and happy. And aside from the usual struggles of growing up with four brothers, she had no reason to vanish on her own. "I always hoped that she was alive," said John Majane, a self-employed engineer who now lives with his family in Bethesda, Md. "But after so many years and so many holidays went by without so much as a phone call, I started to realize that she must be dead.

It was a defensive performance worthy of a legendary linebacker. With Pro Football Hall of Famer Dave Robinson in the house, Moorestown's defense put together a nearly flawless effort in a 7-0 victory over Seneca on Thursday night in the West Jersey Football League opener for both teams. "The strength of our team," new Quakers coach Beau Sherry said of a defense that allowed just two first downs and shut down Seneca's running game. On a rainy night when Moorestown retired Robinson's No. 89 jersey at halftime, the Quakers overcame the elements and the Golden Eagles' sturdy defense with a late touchdown on a 50-yard pass from senior Tyreek Robinson to senior wide receiver Brandon Hammons.

The spur-of-the-moment decision to move sophomore defenseman Nicki Dadino up to midfield during a corner shot worked for the Moorestown field hockey team. Receiving the ball near the right post of Shawnee's cage from senior midfielder Rachel Stefano, Dadino placed the ball perfectly to the left side. Scoring her first high school goal, she helped give the host Quakers a 2-1 win over an old rival, the Renegades, in a nonleague matchup Wednesday. "I had a gut feeling inside of me that it was going to come right to me," Dadino said.

The season was young, but Thomas Farrior thought Willingboro's habit of losing close games was getting old. "We had to figure out a way to win games like this," said Farrior, Willingboro's versatile senior guard. Farrior had 18 points, six rebounds, and four steals as Willingboro beat Moorestown, 74-72, Thursday in overtime in a Burlington County League interdivision boys' basketball game. Senior forward Terique Robinson also scored 18 and made the only bucket in overtime for Willingboro (5-3)

A coaching milestone and a trip to a championship game will be on the line for the Moorestown boys' soccer team Sunday in the semifinals of the South Jersey Coaches Tournament. The Quakers got there by beating Timber Creek, 1-0, in a quarterfinal defensive struggle Saturday, giving coach Mike Sutcliffe his 299th win in a career that goes back to 1990. Ninth-seeded Moorestown will play Lenape, a Friday winner over Haddon Heights, at 2 p.m. at Eastern. Michael Handlan scored the game's lone goal in the 79th minute, winning a race to a loose ball in the box after a failed clearing attempt.

The Traganza property is finally in the hands of Moorestown. The 34 acres on Garwood Road are "some of the most prestigious and pristine property in town," said Dennis Talty, the township solicitor. "It has woods, streams, wildlife. It's really environmentally sensitive. " Township officials had been "pursuing this property for a long, long time," Talty said. Late last week, negotiations were completed to buy the land for $350,000 from PNC Bank, the trustee and executor of Robert and Mary Traganza's estate.

Moments before the first goal, a Moorestown assistant coach shook his head and threw his hands in the air. "That's the story of our season," he said as West Deptford's RJ Eckley lined up for a penalty kick, after Moorestown was whistled for a handball in the 18-yard box. Such was the way the game went Saturday morning as third-seeded West Deptford beat No. 14 Moorestown, 2-1, in the first round of the boys' soccer Coaches Tournament. The game featured several fitting examples of the frustration felt by Moorestown (7-5-1)

After sharing a state Group 2 championship last season, the Moorestown field hockey didn't take any chances on settling for another tie yesterday when it made a repeat appearance in the title game. The Quakers (21-1), ranked No. 4 team in The Inquirer South Jersey top 10, overpowered Wallkill Valley, 4-1, in a game played at Trenton State College. The victory gave coach Joan Lewis her fifth state title in 10 years at Moorestown. "We wanted to come up here and win big," said Lewis, who reminded her team before the game about last year's 1-1 tie with Westwood.

Moorestown coach Bill Donoghue warned his baseball team about the dangers of playing Cinnaminson, and he saw nothing but puzzled looks. After all, Moorestown had pummeled the Pirates, 18-0, on April 8. Donoghue knew what he was talking about. Moorestown escaped with a 2-1 victory yesterday over Cinnaminson in the Burlington County League Liberty Division. Moorestown, which finished last season 6-14, improved to 8-2 overall and 5-1 in the Liberty. Cinnaminson, which starts only two seniors, fell to 6-7, 4-4. "I told our guys that it would be a close game, and they looked at me like I was crazy," Donoghue said.

The Moorestown baseball team scored 13 runs for senior pitcher Jared Gold on Tuesday. He only needed one. "You'll always take one of these," Gold said after pitching a crisp two-hitter in Moorestown's 13-0 victory at Burlington Township in a Burlington County League Liberty Division game. Junior Dane Fante cracked a three-run home run and seniors Colin Francisco and Zach Rausch each drove in three runs as Moorestown (10-8 overall, 4-3 league) broke out the bats in a big way on a warm day. The offensive production was in marked contrast to most of the Quakers' games with Gold on the mound.

Agnes Irwin did something Wednesday that no other lacrosse team had done since 2010: win a game at Moorestown.

It was something old for Ernie Alvino. It was something new for Luke McLoughlin. Alvino, a senior goalie and Air Force Academy recruit, played another strong game in powering St. Augustine Prep to a 10-4 victory over Moorestown on Tuesday in a battle of South Jersey's top-ranked boys' lacrosse teams. The twist for the Hermits on a warm afternoon on their turf field was the offensive production of McLoughlin, a junior who has spent most of the season as a defensive midfielder.

A budding star through most of her freshman season, there was something about the Tournament of Champions finals last year that pushed Jess Goralski into elite status. Confidence, as Goralski points out, is fueled by more than just how you feel about yourself. "I play better when I know my team has faith in me, too. They showed it that day, and it was honestly one of the best experiences of my life," the sophomore goalie for the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team said. With her team trailing by two goals at halftime, Goralski was inserted into the game after not seeing any action in the first half.

Jim Evans met Harry E. Johnson when both were at the Burlington County Police Academy in 1978. Evans was in a three-month training program to become an officer for Willingboro, Mr. Johnson was there to join the Edgewater Park force, and they became best friends. For four years before each was married, Evans recalled, "every year, we took a two-week vacation," far from police responsibilities. "Hawaii in '81, Acapulco in '82, Rio de Janeiro in '83, Puerto Rico in '84. " Evans rose through the ranks and retired in 2004 as a Willingboro police captain and SWAT commander.

The Moorestown girls' lacrosse team entered its game Monday against Lenape just two days after its 88-game win streak was snapped in an overtime loss at Ridgewood. It was the team's first loss since the 2011 Tournament of Champions final. That means that for every Moorestown player - including the seniors - Saturday marked the first loss of her high school career. A 16-11 win at home over undefeated Lenape is proof that ultimately, the players handled it well. "The initial reaction was really tough," said senior Adriana Pendino, who netted four goals.

Abbey Brooks is not 5-foot-1. She is 5-foot-1 1/2. "That's with my cleats on," Brooks said. "That's my edge. " The diminutive Moorestown senior stood tall when her girls' lacrosse team needed her most in a showdown Thursday with rival Shawnee. Brooks and sophomore Quinn Nicolai led a second-half surge as the undefeated Quakers pulled away from a 4-4 tie to register a 10-5 victory on the Renegades' home field. "I knew we would pull through," Brooks said. "I always have faith in my team.

Coaches love these types of games early in a season. It gives them a look at their team under a microscope, a clear indication of just about every possible strength and weakness. When it was over, Moorestown boys' lacrosse coach Baron Wallenhurst talked about fixing turnover problems and playing with more focus. But there was no denying: "We play with a ton of heart," he said after his Quakers topped host Cherokee, 10-9, in triple overtime Saturday afternoon. "To be able to scrap back and get this win is big for us. " Moorestown trailed by two goals with 5 minutes, 46 seconds left in regulation before a three-goal spurt in 55 seconds helped send the game to overtime.

In her sophomore year, Jess Havers was a reserve on a Cherokee girls' lacrosse team that finished with just six wins. She recalled a conversation she had with herself just before her junior season: "I just said, 'This is when it's going to change. This is going to be my year.' " The fact that it did change, almost overnight, speaks to the tenacity that drives Havers' game. Her stick skills, field awareness, and raw talent are evident, but this is South Jersey girls' lacrosse, where elite skill sets are almost commonplace.

Denny Brady has set such a high standard that an 11-strikeout performance against a quality opponent in the season opener somehow seems like an off day. That's surely unfair, but Brady has been so good for so long that the sight of a crooked number in the opposing team's linescore looks like a misprint. "He makes it look easy, but it's not easy," Buena coach Harry Grose said after Brady led the Chiefs to a 5-2 victory over Moorestown on Wednesday in a nonleague clash of Top 11 teams.
