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.

Quakertown couldn't seem to get a touchdown. The Panthers had first and goal from the 2-yard line, second and goal from the 1, and first and goal from the 7. Each of those series ended with no points. But on their fourth try, they got in the end zone. Quarterback Alec Vera scored on a 1-yard run on second and goal to give host Quakertown an 8-7 win over Pennridge on Thursday in the 85th Thanksgiving battle between the rivals. Although this is the first time the Panthers have emerged victorious on Thanksgiving since 2008, it's the second time they've topped the Rams this season.

Archbishop Wood took an early 21-point lead and, having previously experienced little resistance after building big advantages, might have thought Imhotep Charter was next in line to leave quietly. But the quick-strike Panthers battled back in Saturday's highly anticipated PIAA District 12 Class AAA football final, closing a 22-point, third-quarter gap to eight with 21/2 minutes remaining. The Vikings finally nailed down a 42-34 victory at Northeast - and their seventh straight district championship - with Alex Arcangeli's 2-yard run on a fourth and 1 near midfield.

THREE WEEKS after Imhotep Charter thrashed West Philadelphia High, 66-6, deja vu was in full effect Saturday afternoon with the Panthers' 62-0 rout over the Speedboys to capture the Public League Class AAA championship at Northeast High field. Despite tallying 62 unanswered points en route to the title, Imhotep coach Albie Crosby delivered a post-game message, firmly reminding his team: "State Champions. Still not done. " Senior quarterback Andre Dreuitt-Parks seems to have that slogan set in his mind.

The Eagles modeled their 3-4 defense on the great Steelers units from the 1990s and 2000s, and while they aren't quite in that category, the unit has finally started getting pass-rush pressure like an odd-man front should. The 3-4 is designed to feature the linebackers, and the Eagles have been excellent all season, but especially so in the first half against the Panthers. Connor Barwin notched three sacks (he added a half-sack in the third quarter). Trent Cole picked up his fifth sack before the break.

One week after starting at safety, Earl Wolff was inactive for the Eagles' win over the Carolina Panthers. Safety Chris Prosinski, who signed last week, played in Wolff's place. Wolff was not on the injury report entering the game, so he was believed to be a healthy scratch. Coach Chip Kelly has offered only lukewarm endorsements this season when asked about Wolff, who could not beat Nate Allen for a starting job during the summer. With Allen injured last week, Wolff struggled in a win over the Houston Texans.

It was not the expected response from a coach whose team had just been eliminated from the state tournament. But Jim Zeldenrust could be forgiven for not knowing the protocol. His Plumstead Christian boys' soccer team had never been eliminated from the tournament before. "I feel like we can finally celebrate," Zeldenrust said Tuesday night after the Panthers' dream season ended with a 1-0 loss to Moravian Academy in a PIAA Class A semifinal at Souderton. "Every game, we've just been, 'Next game, next game.' We can finally sit back and appreciate it. " The Panthers, who reached the state tournament for the first time, stood toe-to-toe with a much larger Moravian squad, but Jeff Brown slipped one in with 33 minutes, 58 seconds remaining in regulation, and the Panthers (19-3)

Defenseman Michael Del Zotto was an unwanted free agent most of the summer, and he finally signed a one-year deal with the Flyers when Kimmo Timonen was sidelined with career-threatening blood clots. It's beginning to look like the best $1.3 million the Flyers have spent in a long time. After a shaky start to the season, Del Zotto has steadied himself, and he continued his strong all-around play Thursday night, helping the Flyers dominate Florida, 4-1, at the Wells Fargo Center.

SUNRISE, Fla. - After sitting out four games, No. 1 goalie Steve Mason was sharp in his return Saturday night. The Flyers weren't. Roberto Luongo made 36 saves and led Florida to a 2-1 win over the Flyers at the BB&T Center. Vinny Lecavalier, who missed the previous seven games with an ankle injury, scored with 7.4 seconds left, denying Luongo his 68th career shutout. "You try to find positives in kind of a negative situation," said Mason, now 0-4-1. "I was happy, for the most part, with the way my game went, but when the other goalie at the other end pretty much plays a perfect game, it's tough to come out on the winning side.

TAMPA, Fla. - When Shayne Gostisbehere took his seat aboard the Flyers' chartered flight bound for Florida yesterday afternoon, marking the launch of his first NHL road trip, it was just another milestone on a journey that began in Montreal in the 1940s. His grandfather, Denis Brodeur, grew up in Montreal but migrated to the land of opportunity in Florida at age 11 in 1955. Brodeur's love for the Canadiens, ingrained in all Montrealers, never left him. In 1955, the NHL was beyond an afterthought in South Florida.
