Federal authorities have accused a Moorestown man of cheating the U.S. Department of Defense by providing unapproved products on $3 million worth of contracts in 2008 and 2009. Richard Melton, as president of Partz Network, a replacement-parts distributor in Burlington Township, intentionally provided parts to the department that were not from an approved list of suppliers - then falsified or fabricated documentation for their source, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Trenton.

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. - She bounced in her first goal off a free-position shot. And there was something about the bounce. There was a little extra force in the way the ball sprung off the turf, a little extra attitude in the way Marie McCool ripped it forward. Anyone paying attention could sense what McCool was thinking. And those who had watched her play before probably knew what was coming. "I told myself at halftime," McCool said. "I am not losing my last game as a high school player.

A painter on a ladder was sanding a wall, an electrician was tugging wires from a floorplate, pages were stacking DVDs into newly installed shelving, and the man in a Teamsters T-shirt wanted to know where to deliver his crate just as a load of plastic-wrapped biographies rolled through the front door of the new Moorestown Library. "Look," joked library director Joe Galbraith. "There goes Che Guevara. " He meant the book, not the late revolutionary, but his good humor was understandable.

The weight of what's at stake is almost too much to think about. A win would mark an accomplishment almost too big to believe. In other words, it's another typical June game for the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team. The Quakers will play for the Tournament of Champions title against Summit at 5 p.m. Saturday at Bridgewater Raritan. Moorestown enters the game on a 76-game winning streak. The team's eight seniors have not lost since their freshman year. A win Saturday would be the program's 21st de facto overall state title, a fitting end for one of the most successful senior classes that the nation's most successful girls' lacrosse program has fielded.

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - When the last second ticked off the first-half clock, Jessica Goralski was prepared for another 25 minutes of dutifully cheering on her teammates from the sideline. Goralski, a freshman goalie for the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team, had yet to see the field. She was expecting more of the same when coach Deanna Knobloch approached her. "Jess," Knobloch said. "You're going in. " And that was it. It was halftime of the Group 3 championship. The game was tied.

Moorestown girls' lacrosse coach Deanna Knobloch knows her team is good. She just thinks the Quakers can be better. "I'm not sure we've played our best lacrosse yet," Knobloch said after Moorestown's 17-5 victory over Princeton on Thursday in the South Jersey Group 3 championship game. Moorestown (23-0) has another chance to raise its game to another level Saturday in the Group 3 state final against North Jersey champion Mendham (13-6) at noon at Monmouth University. Moorestown, which has won 74 games in a row, will seek its fourth consecutive state title and 14th since 2000.

Marie McCool remembers her first game on Moorestown's field "like it was yesterday. " But it was the game before that game that is lodged even deeper in the minds of Moorestown's sensational senior and her classmates. They were in eighth grade on May 24, 2010, and many of them were sitting across the field from the benches when Moorestown lost to Shawnee in the South Jersey Group 3 title game. It was a stunning result - the Quakers' first loss in 228 games against New Jersey teams - that still reverberates through South Jersey's premier program.

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. - Moorestown has deeper roots and a more successful history than any other South Jersey boys' lacrosse team. It is the only area program with a state title on its resumé, and it has three championships. Hardly a season goes by when the Quakers are not expected to compete for a state championship. But this was one of those rare seasons. "Nobody expected us to make it this far," senior attack Michael Handlan said after his team's 13-4 loss to Ridgewood on Wednesday in the Group 3 state final at Ridge High.
