Ocean City had finished a close second to Millville in last year's race. "We can play better," said the Raiders' second-year head coach, Wayne Colman, "but I'm happy with the win. I'm especially happy with the shutout against a club with backs the quality of Cumberland. " Ocean City outgained Cumberland, 243-104, in total offense and had 17 first downs to only six for the losers.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Voters in "dry" Ocean City on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a proposal to permit consumption of alcohol by patrons in local restaurants, which would have been a first in the Jersey Shore resort's 125-year history. About 3,200 of the 4,600 people who voted - more than the number who showed up in the November election here - said no to a ballot question that sought to permit the practice called BYOB, ending the town's ban on bringing beer and wine to eateries.

The Ocean City boys' soccer team has yet to lose in an NJSIAA Group 3 state championship match. The Red Raiders improved to 2-0-3 in finals after defeating Scotch Plains-Fanwood, 2-0, in last night's championship at the College of New Jersey. Ocean City has now won its second outright title in three seasons. The Raiders were the state cochampions in 1995, 1999 and 2000. While Ocean City cherishes all of its state titles, last night's may go down as the most enjoyable one. "This is extra special, because of the season they just completed," said coach Mike Pellegrino, whose Red Raiders finished their campaign with a 24-0-1 record.

There is something awesome about a traditional hotel breakfast when it is done absolutely right. The table: Set heavily with monogrammed china and enough pieces of silverware to confound even Miss Manners. First a coffee spoon, then a fruit spoon, then a cereal spoon, plus a butter knife, a main-course fork and knife, and a fork and knife we had no idea what to use on. The staff: Smiling young waiters and waitresses hurrying to our table at our briefest stare, bowing slightly to offer fragrant goodies from bins and trays.

THE SAND IS FINE and the post-Sandy attitude is, too, on the seven-mile-long island that long ago proclaimed itself "America's Greatest Family Resort. " Families in Ocean City are typically of the very traditional variety, as was intended by the foursome of Methodist ministers who established a Christian retreat there in 1879. These holy men also instituted Blue Laws that prohibited shopping on Sundays and the sale of any kind of alcohol. The first edict is no longer in effect, but the second one lives on - A recent vote firmly enforced the city's no-BYOB policy, too. Former summer residents include Grace Kelly and Gay Talese, who grew up here.

After a day of swimming, castle-building, and sunbathing, there are few pleasures as relaxing to some vacationers as a cold beer on a warm summer's night, or a nice glass of Syrah to toast the sunset. But restaurants in the popular Jersey Shore beach town of Ocean City are banned from selling alcoholic beverages, or even allowing diners to bring their own. That could change, though, with a scheduled May 8 referendum. If the Bring Your Own Bottle proposal passes, patrons could bring their own refreshments to restaurants anywhere in Ocean City, except on the boardwalk.

Ocean City senior Colleen Slaughter looks forward to playing Eastern in a semifinal of the field hockey Tournament of Champions at 5:30 p.m. today at Hunterdon Central. Not many players or teams are so eager to take on the Vikings, who just won their 11th consecutive state Group 4 title, a national record. "I want to play Eastern because they beat us in a [preseason] scrimmage," said Slaughter, Ocean City's leading season and career scorer of all time with 51 and 92 goals, respectively.

Picking two winners to fund at Thursday's Third AppitUP Demo Day sponsored by the Penn Center for Innovation wasn't easy, said an apologetic judge Omar Mencin, a director of Ben Franklin Technology Partners. Culled from a field of 313 submissions from 10 schools across the University of Pennsylvania, all six app finalists presenting before the venture capital community had good reasons to be up there, Mencin said. Each rocked the stage at World Cafe Live, vying for the $50,000 in start-up seed money that Ben Franklin T.P. would award to just two. In the end, judges landed on two medically minded projects, Animotion and ProNoto, that clearly answered the question "Where's the money?"

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Hundreds of basset hounds waddled down the boardwalk here Saturday as a thousand or so spectators gathered to watch the Doo Dah Parade, a springtime tradition. Some of the hounds were stuffed into pink tutus, while others wore polka dots, stripes, silvery capes, and assorted straw hats. Still others were au naturel , looking adorable enough with their pensive eyes and dangling ears on a warm, sunny day that had lured visitors to the Shore way ahead of the season.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - To say that Mark Soifer would go to the ends of the earth for Ocean City may be an understatement. Because in the 45 years that Soifer - who will retire at the end of the summer from his position as the resort's public relations director - has commuted from his home in Vineland to his office here, he could have circumnavigated the globe three times. Soifer, aside from creating and executing dozens of local events and activities over the years, has also written about 5,000 columns for the local newspaper, the Ocean City Sentinel, and thousands of news releases about everything from the annual Doo Dah Parade to the Mister Maturity Pageant.

A Voorhees woman pleaded guilty Wednesday to submitting fraudulent documents to the Federal Emergency Management Agency to obtain nearly $21,000 in relief funds she was not entitled to after Hurricane Sandy, authorities said. Andrea Knoerzer, 53, pleaded to disaster benefits fraud in federal court in Camden. Knoerzer, who applied for FEMA benefits in November 2012, claimed her primary residence was in Ocean City, when it was actually in Voorhees, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. She also said the storm had damaged her Volvo, even though it was not in Ocean City at the time, authorities said.
