The football was high in the air as the person holding it, Matt Mignano, got swallowed up by his teammates.

NEPTUNE, N.J. - Instead of huddling for a team meeting, the Washington Township boys' soccer team lined up and faced the scoreboard. "Our coaches told us to look at it.

Thirty seconds into the second overtime, MacKinnon fulfilled his coaches' wish. He headed in a perfect pass from Dan Marino to give Washington Township a 2-1 win over Manalapan Wednesday in the state Group 4 semifinals at Summerfield Elementary School.

BRAYDEN SCHENN swiped the puck off Jake Muzzin's stick just inside the Flyers' blue line and took off on an overtime breakaway. The only audible sound inside the Wells Fargo Center, aside from a building crescendo of anticipation, was the noise of 19,873 seats flipping up as butts rose out of them. "From blue line to blue line, I just put my head down," Schenn said. "It was just an all-out sprint to try and create separation. I think it was maybe around the [Kings'] blue line that I tried to look and see what's open.

A former city Department of Human Services worker was charged Monday with allegedly stealing nearly $18,000 in SEPTA tokens, and claiming more than $6,000 in overtime for work she did not perform, prosecutors said. Shamira Hawkins-Worthey, 30, of the 3000 block of North Ninth Street, was responsible for providing SEPTA tokens to clients so they could travel to court hearings, doctor's visits, or for other reasons related to DHS, prosecutors said. In September 2013, a supervisor noticed that Hawkins-Worthey had requested 300 tokens during a two-day period - an amount considered unusually high, prosecutors said.

Drew Tomlinson was thinking about freshman year. Mark Walker was thinking about practice. They both have something new to remember after they combined with Tommy Kadar to produce the winning play in Haddonfield's 28-25 victory over West Deptford in a Colonial Conference instant classic on Thursday night. Walker's snap and Kadar's hold set the stage for Tomlinson, a junior who nailed a 32-yard field goal for the winning points on Haddonfield's first possession of overtime. "That's something you don't even dream about," Tomlinson said of making the game-winning kick before a capacity-plus crowd in Haddonfield's historic stadium on a perfect night for football.
