We have to confess to occasionally giving in to the defeatist notion that Camden is a lost cause. Its poverty, its decay, its problems tend to dominate the headlines and, thus, perceptions. But every now and then, a bolt of energy and enthusiasm flies out of its bleakest reaches, shattering the stereotype, confounding the image. Sometimes a basketball team will do it. Sometimes a class working on a spacecraft experiment. This year it's Camden High School's Marching Panthers - band and ensemble.

Cheltenham coach Steve Daley said it was just a matter of time until senior guard Scott Feller broke loose, and Saturday night against Central Bucks West turned out to be just the right time. Decimated by injuries to guards Steve Fennal (broken finger) and Leon Johnson (torn ankle ligaments) and forward Mike Sutrynowicz (dislocated finger), the Panthers were forced to play West with a patched-up team that was proven on defense but questionable when it came to scoring. Fortunately for the Panthers, Feller scored a season-high 15 points, senior forward Ralph Richardson recorded 6 in the fourth quarter and the Panthers defeated West, 51-45, in a nonleague game at Cheltenham.

Strath Haven fired off 22 points at the start of its Wednesday night matchup against Penn Wood, but it wasn't enough to stave off the host Patriots. The Patriots rallied for a 62-59 victory over the Panthers in their third win of the year. Both clubs played Friday - Penn Wood won against Monsignor Bonner and Strath Haven triumphed against Upper Darby. The Pats are now 4-0 while the Panthers are 2-3. "We came out slow and they came out hot," said Chip Cifuni, Patriot coach.

THE PICK After watching some of yesterday's NFL action, I'm starting to think that maybe Cam Newton throws five touchdown passes to Jason Avant tonight, runs for another 200 yards and the Panthers roll to victory. But I guess ridiculous results elsewhere (Really, Steelers? You were my best bet this week. Thanks a bunch.) won't really have anything to do with what happens on the field tonight, and I just don't see the Panthers winning without a ton of Mark Sanchez turnovers. Carolina came into the weekend with the league's 26th-ranked run defense.

It started when a handful of men saw children in their West Philadelphia neighborhood crying because they wanted to play football but had no teams to join. It was 1990. Instead of walking away, the men huddled. They pooled their cash - about $700 - and sponsored two football teams for 42 children ages 7 and 8. Because the men could only afford 11 uniforms, the children would pass them among themselves between games. That wasn't ideal, but it was how the teams - called the Panthers - got their start.

Cheltenham hit the road Friday in search of its first victory in state championship tournament play. The Panthers had lost their last two District 1 playoff games last week - to Downingtown and Coatesville. But coach Bob Schaefer thought the Panthers could travel to Dunmore and bounce back with a win against Tunkhannock, the top seed from District 2, in the opening round of the PIAA Class AAAA tournament. When it was all said and done, it was Tunkhannock that did the bouncing, sending the Panthers home with a 53-41 loss.

Coach Chick Donnelly's top priority this season is to recapture the glory that once characterized the William Tennent boys' basketball program. After losing seven of their first nine games, the Panthers looked anything but glorious. Yet Donnelly refused to give up on the team, and his patience has paid off. Led by center Dave Wilding's 17 points, the Panthers won their fourth consecutive game Friday by defeating host Neshaminy, 51-40, in a Suburban One Patriot Division contest.

Collingswood won its fifth football game in a row last night, using its powerful defense to stop Gateway, 29-6. The Panthers, still hoping for a Group 2 playoff berth, raised their record to 6-1 overall and 6-1 in the Colonial Conference. Collingswood had been scored on in only one previous game, a 30-13 loss to Paulsboro on Oct. 1. Gateway fell to 4-3. The Gators' three losses have been to Collingswood, Paulsboro and Sterling - a trio with a combined record of 18-1. Wes Durham's 29-yard field goal got the scoring started, and quarterback Glen Ambrosius was 6 of 8 for 82 yards in the first half, when the Panthers put the game away.

The Florida Panthers showcased their new home and perhaps a new star. Mark Parrish's first two NHL goals broke a tie in the third period as the Panthers christened their new arena last night with a 4-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Parrish, who tied for the league lead with six preseason goals, scored his first career goal at 2:34 of the period to break a 1-1 tie, then gave the Panthers a cushion with another goal at 8:24. "It's nice to see a young player like that break in the way he did," said Florida coach Terry Murray, who was making his debut behind the Panthers' bench.

The odds appeared to be against Cheltenham in the PIAA Class AAAA girls' basketball playoffs. The Panthers were coming out of the District 1 playoffs as the fifth-place team and had to face District 11 champion Hazleton in the opening round. And getting by that round meant a matchup with District 1 runner-up Coatesville. But the Panthers took care of both those hurdles before knocking off Dallastown in the PIAA quarterfinals. That left District 1 champion Downingtown East as the only team in their way en route to Friday's state championship game.

MAYBE IT'S a good thing the Lightning didn't win the Stanley Cup. The Flyers would have had a firsthand, excruciating view of them raising the championship banner. While the full schedule is due out at 10 a.m. today, home openers were released yesterday and the Flyers' first regular-season game will be in Tampa on Thursday, Oct. 8. After a game at Florida two nights later, the Flyers will have their own home opener on Monday, Oct. 12 against the Panthers (7 p.m.). Florida, which is hosting this weekend's draft, is one of the rising teams in the NHL. It improved from 66 points in 2013-14 to 91 last season.

While a regular-season member of the suburban Bicentennial Athletic League, MaST Community Charter, located on Byberry Road in Northeast Philly, is officially part of the PIAA's District 12. All the other BAL schools fall under District 1's umbrella. "It's been an arrangement over the years for them to play in the Bicentennial," District 1 executive secretary Bob Ruoff said. "They're able to compete against similar sized schools close to them. " Accepted by the Public League to compete in its playoffs in order to qualify for the state tournament, the Panthers made noise in baseball this season by advancing to the semifinals.

Spenser Gray says she's known since she was seven years old: it would be her class that was going to be the one to change the Quakertown softball program. With five starters as members of the class of 2016 - including Gray - the Quakertown third baseman is starting to look prophetic. That junior class stepped up for Panthers in a 5-2 victory over Central Bucks East on Thursday afternoon in a Suburban One Continental game. It was the third straight win for the Panthers (8-8 overall, 4-8 league)

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - A fractured left hand three games into the regular season turned Imhotep Charter senior captain Devin Liggeons from participant to spectator. "It's such a hard thing to go through, especially when it's your last year of high school," the 6-foot-3, 180-pound wing guard said. "You do your best to be patient with the process, but you really want to be out there. " Liggeons has returned for the team's stretch run, and Andre Noble couldn't be happier to have No. 24 back on the hardwood.

Khalif Tinley stays in his lane on the basketball court. The 6-foot-1 senior for Imhotep Charter isn't flashy, and he typically doesn't score much, but you'd be hard pressed to find someone who works harder. Friday night at Archbishop Carroll, Tinley did the dirty work and helped the Panthers beat Berks Catholic, 74-43, in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA tournament. "I just play defense," Tinley said. "I don't get outside of myself. I just stay in my little area of the game.

AFTER THE FLYERS' overtime loss to Calgary on Tuesday night, most of the players were huddled around a TV in the team's lounge at Wells Fargo Center. More players started to join the group as word circulated about the Panthers and Maple Leafs game in South Florida. By nature, the Flyers were grabbed by the action: The Panthers are one of two teams in pursuit of a final Stanley Cup playoff spot in the East. But something far more compelling was taking shape on the ice. Panthers starting goaltender Roberto Luongo went down in the first period and now backup Al Montoya was limping toward the bench in need of relief.

Natalie Kucowski called it a reward. A reward for the practices full of quickness drills to help the St. Basil basketball team keep its legs. A reward for the running sessions to stay in shape. The Panthers stood at midcourt at Upper Dublin to get their District 1 Class AA championship medals and raise the trophy. Their tedious work over the past two weeks had paid off. St. Basil claimed its third straight district title and gave coach Terry Mancini his 300th win by defeating New Hope-Solebury, 45-31.

Sabrina Allen likes to say that she "bleeds basketball. " "Cut me open," she tells her Imhotep Charter girls' basketball players, "that's all you are going to see is basketball. " The coach of the Panthers, in her sixth year, has turned the program into one of the most intense and consistent in the city. In other words, the Panthers bleed basketball too. And on Sunday afternoon, Imhotep took home its second straight Public League championship, by defeating Mastery Charter North, 61-33, at St. Joseph's Hagan Arena.

During a brief break in fourth-quarter action Thursday night, Martin Luther King coach Sean Colson grabbed the attention of his guards. As Imhotep Charter coach Andre Noble conferred with referees about a free-throw discrepancy, Colson, his index finger extended, barked out instructions. "Do not leave him," he ordered. "Don't ever leave him!" On the business end of Colson's finger was a smiling Daron Russell. The 5-foot-10 sophomore guard for Imhotep had been a thorn in the Cougars' paws early on in the Public League semifinal at Southern.
