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.

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.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Despite Florida's wretched record, the Flyers will not have an easy game against the Panthers on Tuesday night at the BB&T Center. The Flyers, desperate for a win to keep their second-place hopes alive in the Metropolitan Division, are facing a Florida team that has become formidable with the acquisition of veteran goalie Roberto Luongo. The Panthers have the second-fewest points (64) in the NHL, but Luongo has kept them competitive since he was reacquired from Vancouver.

Moments after St. Basil won its second straight District 1 Class AA title in girls' basketball, Kate Skalski compared her team's impending journey in the PIAA state tournament to a "business trip. " One of eight seniors for the Panthers, Skalski said this group has its eyes on only one thing: a state-tournament run. Basil certainly took care of business Saturday, defeating Christopher Dock, 51-23, for the district championship at Villanova's Pavilion. The Panthers took control from the start, setting the tone by knocking down seemingly anything they put up from the perimeter.

With her team up by just three points with seconds left on the clock, Imhotep Charter head coach Sabrina Allen lost track of time. With the Panthers' opponent, Northeast, in possession of the basketball and looking to tie the game, Allen was sure at least half a minute remained in the Public League girls' championship game. Then the buzzer sounded, and Allen was able to breathe a sigh of relief. Then she jumped up and down in celebration. Imhotep overcame Northeast's late surge, prevailing at the Liacouras Center to capture the Public League title, 41-38.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - NaVorro Bowman did not need to rehash the San Francisco 49ers' history with the Seattle Seahawks. The bitter NFC West rivals will meet again in the NFC championship game after San Francisco's 23-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in the divisional round Sunday at Bank of America Stadium. "Long story short: They know us, we know them," said Bowman, a Pro Bowl linebacker and former Penn State standout. "We all know the history. " The 49ers and Seahawks finished with the NFC's best records.

HERSHEY - Imhotep Charter head coach Albie Crosby stood before his team - his face chafed by the bitter cold and wind that whipped through Hersheypark Stadium all day - while his players took knees and held back tears. After the Panthers lost, 41-0, in yesterday's PIAA Class AA championship game against South Fayette, Crosby's message was clear. "I know this thing hurts," he said. "I don't have a problem with anybody crying. That means you gave it everything you had. " The balance of the game, however, was decided by South Fayette's precision on both sides vs. slew of Imhotep penalties that stifled any opportunity for momentum.

The Catasauqua pass fluttered in Saturday afternoon's brisk air before Imhotep Charter's DeAndre Scott wrapped his red-and-white gloves around it. And that, Scott said, was about the moment his mind went black. The senior speedster zigzagged his way for an 80-yard interception return, crossing the goal line with his right hand extended above his helmet. It was Scott's second defensive touchdown of the first half, and propelled the Panthers to a 49-0 victory in a PIAA state Class AA quarterfinal at Germantown's Johnston Memorial Stadium.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Standing in the hallway just outside the Flyers' locker room, coach Craig Berube was shaking his head in disgust. Hours earlier, at his team's morning skate, he warned the confident Flyers to not overlook Florida. Berube knew relaxing in Florida's warm breezes can direct a game one of two ways for the Flyers. The two outcomes, like the winter-time temperatures in Fort Lauderdale and Philadelphia, are polar opposites. Sometimes, the difference in latitude provides a change in attitude, and the no-pressure environment in South Florida is a healthy respite from a long and grueling season.

SUNRISE, Fla. - There were loud "Let's go Flyers!" chants Monday night from the estimated 1,000 visiting fans who wore orange-and-white jerseys to the BB&T Center. They left the South Florida arena unhappy. So did the Flyers.

The Flyers had been on a 6-0-1 run and they had won their previous five games here against the Panthers (7-13-5)
