Gavin Bright and Matt Hendrickson are slick, athletic soccer players. In space, they might be the most dangerous combination in South Jersey. They're smart and creative and lightning-quick on and off the ball. That is what makes the Clearview seniors one of the area's most highly touted offensive duos. But, as they point out, it's not necessarily what makes them winners. Winning a big game, Bright said, is all about composure. "To be completely honest, you just can't overthink it," Bright added.

Allen Barrett isn't usually a goal-scorer. But Barrett, a senior center midfielder for the Cinnaminson boys' soccer team, saved his biggest goal-scoring performance for one of his team's biggest games. Barrett recorded his first career hat trick Thursday to lead the host Pirates to a 4-0 win over Moorestown, a Burlington County League Liberty Division rival and the No. 7-ranked team in South Jersey by The Inquirer. "Absolutely, they're a neighboring town," said coach Jason Miele, on whether Moorestown was a team his side looked forward to playing.

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.

JUST TO LOOK OVER the delicacies that Catherine Sullivan specialized in is to regret that you were never invited to her home for dinner. Try manicotti, clams and spaghetti, crabs and spaghetti, or lamb and spaghetti, often served at her beach house in Ship Bottom, N.J., with the sound of the surf and the gentle sea breeze at the window. If you notice an Italian flavor to her menu, it's understandable, since her maiden name was Garofalo. "Catherine may have been the matriarch of the Sullivan Clan, but she knew her Italian cooking," her family said.

A federal judge in Camden has dismissed a lawsuit in which two Moorestown couples alleged that their families were exposed to health risks and a loss of property value because of underground contamination caused by a toxic chemical spill at a plant now owned by Lockheed Martin. Judge Jerome B. Simandle said no evidence was presented to show that the concentrations of trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PCE) vapors found in the Wexford neighborhood across from the plant "pose an imminent and substantial endangerment to health or the environment.

Amid the sprawling front lawns and stately homes of east Moorestown, six burglaries have unfolded about two miles apart since early June, and with common themes: The residents were away in each instance, and did not set or have working alarms. Second-floor bedrooms - and the jewelry inside them - were the main target, with TVs and silverware generally untouched. And the hours of 6 p.m. to midnight were prime time for the thieves. With the latest burglary reported Monday, Moorestown police are investigating whether the same individual or group is responsible.

Sgt. William McGovern of the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office fatally ran over a motorcyclist and called 911 last July 27. Then, minutes after he learned the victim was off-duty Moorestown Patrolman Craig Berner, McGovern left the scene on Westfield Road to feed a friend's cat, according to law enforcement records. Although McGovern returned within an hour of the 10 p.m. crash - and township police then documented that he smelled of alcohol - authorities called off a sobriety test requested by a Moorestown officer.
