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.

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.

Strath Haven warmed up for another assault on the state PIAA Class AAA boys' soccer title by pounding Selinsgrove yesterday, 6-2, in quarterfinal action at Northern Lebanon High School. The Panthers (23-1-1) moved into the state semifinals, where they will meet the winner of yesterday's game between Dallastown and Emmaus on Tuesday. A victory in the semifinals would allow Strath Haven to vie for its fourth state championship in the last 10 years. Strath Haven buried Erie McDowell, 8-0, in last year's state finals.

DONOVAN MCNABB has company. Like the former Eagles quarterback, Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin admitted on Sunday that he didn't know a game could end in a tie. That explains the quizzical look he had when players started walking onto the field to shake hands with the scoreboard reading, Panthers 37, Bengals 37. "I was like, what? I was confused," Benjamin told the Charlotte Observer. "They had to explain what was going on. In a way, it still kind of felt like a loss.

Collingswood field hockey goalie Becca Hall panicked as she ran to take her place on the field. She couldn't find her lucky jersey. "I told her change was good," Panthers captain Rachel Galante said. For Collingswood, change was great. The Panthers broke the undefeated streak of visiting West Deptford by pulling out a late 1-0 win in an intense Colonial Liberty matchup Wednesday afternoon at Knights Field. "It's awesome because last year we were in the same position as them, being undefeated," said Galante, a senior midfielder.

Collingswood football coach Jack McConnell might have lost track of the punts and penalties and peculiar plays that marked his team's game against Paulsboro. But he knew one statistic for sure. "We always talk about gut checks, and there were 1,000 of them," McConnell said after Collingswood's 16-14 victory over Paulsboro in a Colonial Conference interdivision tug-of-war Saturday. It was that kind of a game. It was a rugged, ragged struggle in which the turning point was a shotgun snap that sailed over the Paulsboro quarterback and out of the end zone for a safety that gave Collingswood a 2-0 lead in the third quarter.

MICHELLE STRAUGHTER didn't make any plays when Imhotep Charter chopped up Mastery North, 50-0, on Saturday night, but she had an impact nonetheless by way of a converstaion with her son, Seiffudin Black. The 5-10, 181-pound defensive back had two interceptions - his first two this season - and returned both for scores just like he said he would. "On the way to the game, she told me, 'Seiff, you didn't catch a pick this year, yet,' " Black said, as fans filed out of the Ben Johnston Supersite.

Rachel Galante, a Collingswood field hockey captain, knows she can count on her teammates to pick up the weight on the field that she can't carry just yet. Coming back from an offseason ankle injury, the senior midfielder was proud that she can rely on the players by her side to step up. That much was evident when the Panthers pulled out a nail-biting, 2-1 victory at rival Haddonfield to open the season Friday. "I'm happy with my teammates," Galante said, noting that the chemistry of the team is on par because of several veterans returning this season.

EARLIER THIS WEEK, Ovonnie Baker awoke from his home along 56th and Market streets, only to be greeted rudely by what he felt was a harsh and unjust foe. The Overbrook High junior is a transfer from Miami Carol City Senior High School, so when the "brisk" Philadelphia air hit his body, he retreated for reinforcements. "It doesn't really get cold in Miami until around December, so waking up for school . . . " said Baker, with the hint of a hybrid Southern drawl as he shook his dreadlocked hair in disbelief.

WITH A SIMPLE shrug of his shoulders and his face clad with an ear-to-ear smile, Imhotep senior DJ Moore assured what a stat sheet might never know. Yesterday at the Marcus Foster (Gratz) Supersite, Moore played under center, not at wide receiver, where his skill set has already earned him a scholarship offer from the University of Maryland (he committed this summer). The Panthers' typical tosser, Andre Dreuitt-Parks, was injured and still recovering from concussion-like symptoms suffered the previous week, so Moore was called to action against Boys' Latin.

A QUICK LOOK at the last two seasons of Imhotep Charter football produces some jaw-dropping numbers. The Panthers have amassed a 27-4 overall record, with a 10-0 mark in Public League play. Add to that scoring 1,313 points while allowing only 314 during that span, and you have clear-cut dominance. However, coach Albie Crosby, soon to enter his third season, isn't satisfied. "This year's slogan is: 'Still not done,' " he said while his Panthers polished their play behind the Lonnie Young Recreation Center.

Not a whole lot looks the same for the William Tennent softball team this year. Actually, that isn't entirely true. The personnel, for the most part, hasn't changed. What's different is just where coach Biz Keeny decided to put the players on the field. Laura Petri played most of last season in the infield. This year, she tracks down fly balls and hits in left field. As for Casey McMahon, she moved from the outfield last year to first base this year, and Whitney Delagol plays third, whereas last season, she was at shortstop.

SUNRISE, Fla. - The team that had the worst start in franchise history clinched a playoff berth Tuesday night at the BB&T Center. Captain Claude Giroux, who guaranteed the Flyers would make the playoffs when they had a 1-7 record, scored a pair of goals, sparking a 5-2 victory over lowly Florida and assuring that they will be playing in the postseason after being spectators last year. "I just believed in this team," Giroux said of his early-season prediction. "Last year, not making the playoffs was unacceptable.
