It took Paul VI about three quarters to figure out how to contain Winslow Township quarterback Bill Belton, and Paul VI used two fourth-period touchdowns to keep its unbeaten record intact with a 34-18 victory on Friday. Belton launched touchdown passes of 34, 30 and 90 yards as Winslow (4-3) closed within 20-18 in the West Jersey Football League interdivision contest. Belton has 11 touchdown passes this fall and went over the 1,000-yard mark this season. Paul VI (6-0), ranked No. 3 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, sealed the verdict in the fourth quarter when Johnell Anderson ran for his third touchdown of the game after a five-play, 60-yard drive, and Khaaliq Burroughs hit Jakwail Bailey with an 8-yard scoring pass, capping an 11-play, 71-yard march.

"I think he'll bring us the discipline and confidence that we need.

Paul VI took advantage of Winslow Township mistakes early and often in a game that could have been much closer than the final score indicated. Paul VI displayed a well-balanced attack that featured sophomore running back Lonnie Moore en route to a 34-15 victory Saturday at Winslow. Moore had two touchdowns, one receiving and one rushing, finishing with five carries for 75 yards and one catch for a 19-yard score. Senior Alec Vignola, who was 11 for 23 for 230 yards with a touchdown and an interception, led a 60-yard touchdown drive to open the game.

The goals weren't pretty anywhere but on the scoreboard. Top-ranked Lenape scored all its goals off scrambles after re-starts en route to a 3-0 victory over No. 4 Paul VI in an Olympic Conference girls' soccer game Wednesday night. Junior midfielder Courtney Kovac scored twice and Alexus Cooper added the third goal for Lenape (6-0) before a crowd of around 500 spectators under the lights on the Indians' football field. "They are phenomenal on re-starts," Paul VI coach Keith Walters said of Lenape.

When Paul VI wrestling coach Ron Matthew took over the highly successful Eagles program earlier this year, he could not have imagined the problems he would face. And by standards set in previous years under Gary Papa, this season's 7-7-1 record in matches through last night appears to represent a down year for Paul VI wrestling. But make no mistake: The Eagles have made a remarkable turnaround from what started out as a dismal campaign. Matthew's club opened its season with big losses to highly regarded Eastern and Delsea and was 2-6-1 midway through the season.

Mike Hallahan, who enjoyed a successful tenure as both the girls' soccer and softball coach at Paul VI, resigned yesterday from both positions. Hallahan, 31, said he stepped down to pursue potential coaching opportunities at the college level in both sports. "I'm entertaining a couple of possible positions open in both sports," Hallahan said. "I love everyone at Paul VI, and they will always have a piece of my heart. I'm not ruling out some day coming back to coaching high school.

Everybody in the overflow crowd at Collingswood High last night figured that Paul VI had to win the battles against Donna Seybold and Jeanne Mooney to win the war and knock off the undefeated Panthers - the No. 1 women's team in The Inquirer's South Jersey ratings. As it turned out, the Eagles had to accomplish only part of that mission. With Sherrie Androlowicz shadowing Seybold, the No. 3 Eagles (20-2) took control of the nonleague game early and handed the Panthers (21-1)

Alec Vignola and his Paul VI football teammates don't like to talk about last season. They've made the most of it, though. On one hand, Vignola said the Eagles have decided to put 2011 "in the past. " On the other, Vignola said the Eagles have drawn on 2011 for "motivation. " It's a tough balancing act, but Vignola and the Eagles have gotten it just right. The junior quarterback is among South Jersey's statistical leaders, and Paul VI is 4-0 and has risen to No. 9 in The Inquirer's South Jersey rankings.

Brielle Pietrafesa knows what many people think when she walks to the plate and digs her cleats into the dirt in the batter's box. "She's so little. " Standing 5-foot-2, Pietrafesa figures there's any number of ways she can show that her height doesn't matter when it comes to success on the softball field. She can play strong defense at shortstop. Check. She can hit for average. Check. She can hit for power. Double check. "It's weird," said Pietrafesa, a recent Paul VI graduate who is The Inquirer's South Jersey Player of the Year in softball.

As a lot of high school seniors did, Lisa Steele figured her future would be away from South Jersey. A 2,000-point scorer during an illustrious basketball career at Highland, Steele accepted a scholarship to George Washington University and imagined a path that would take her far from her hometown area. "When I was at GW, I got hurt and I started thinking about coaching, and I thought I would be a big-time college coach," Steele said. "I remember when I was in high school, I wanted to get away from South Jersey.

THIS MAY come as a bit of a shock to some of my regular readers, but I'm Catholic. Shut the front door, right? This makes me particularly sensitive to things that are even vaguely Catholic, like culinary innovations in fish sticks, so you can just imagine how my antennae start vibrating when anything on the pope comes down the information highway. I mean, the only thing more Catholic than the pope is Nancy Pelosi, that amazing theologian who once argued that abortion isn't necessarily a sin. (One would think that a chick from Baltimore would understand the Baltimore Catechism a bit better than that, but I suppose several mind-numbing decades in San Francisco will have their effect on you.)

Rosie LaGrotta had more than one reason to celebrate on Tuesday. LaGrotta allowed a run on five hits to help the fourth-seeded Paul VI softball team beat No. 12 Bishop Eustace at home, 12-1, in the South Jersey Non-Public A quarterfinals. LaGrotta also put herself in the record books. She earned her 79th career win to tie the South Jersey record. LaGrotta, a senior who joined Paul VI this season, received a ball signed by her teammates for reaching the milestone. A Millersville recruit, she previously pitched at Sacred Heart, where she won a Non-Public B state title and was the now-closed school's all-time winningest pitcher.

Danny Hartson was at his best when it mattered most. The junior righthander pitched out of trouble in the top of the first inning, setting the tone for Camden Catholic's 10-0 victory over rival Paul VI on Tuesday in an Olympic Conference National Division baseball game. Hartson worked a complete game, allowing six hits with four walks. He struck out seven - four with runners in scoring position. Seniors Dom Messina and Albert Faiola delivered two-run hits, and sophomore designated hitter Jake Mackara slammed a two-run, game-ending homer for Camden Catholic (9-5 overall, 5-2 National)

With the bases loaded and the game tied in the top of the ninth inning, Nick Browne didn't think about the weight of the moment. Patience was the defining characteristic of his team's performance to that point. And in his final at-bat, Browne played the role to perfection. He was loose and thoughtful as he walked to the plate. He worked a 3-1 count. Then he effortlessly stroked a fastball far beyond the right-field fence. It was the go-ahead grand slam in the Bishop Eustace baseball team's 10-6 win at Paul VI on Saturday afternoon in an Olympic Conference National Division matchup.

Rosie LaGrotta had a night free from her team, so she went to Millville for a softball game and to see her former teammates play. As an alumna does, she made her way around the field and caught up with a lot of the girls throughout the game. The only difference was that LaGrotta is a senior at Paul VI and the girls she went to see were her former teammates from Sacred Heart. Together, they won the South Jersey Non-Public B title the last two years before the school closed because of declining enrollment.

Toward the end of his freshman year, Paul VI junior receiver Irvin Charles started getting an indication that he could be a scholarship football player. He began earning invitations to college football camps, great recruiting vehicles for the big-time programs. Since then, Charles hasn't done anything to dispel the notion. In fact, he is among the top recruits in the state, and that is why the spring of his junior year is in some ways much more hectic than the past football season.

Bobbi Beck pitched for Absegami on Wednesday afternoon, and as has been the case lately, she led the Braves to a win. Beck continued her dominance from the circle as the host Braves downed Holy Spirit, 4-0, in a Cape-Atlantic American softball game. The win was the third straight for the Braves, and Beck has earned the victory in each game. She scattered three hits and struck out seven in her shutout. Beck has gotten stingier in each of her last three starts, allowing two runs to Deptford and one to Atlantic County Tech before Wednesday's outing.

Brandon Simmons said he was trying to be "ordinary. " He was a smashing failure. Simmons cracked a three-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning to power Holy Cross to a 4-3 victory over Paul VI on Wednesday in a nonleague baseball game. "I was just trying to move the runners over," Simmons said. "Coach [Steve Paolini] always says, 'Be ordinary, not extraordinary.' What comes extra is a bonus. " Simmons, a junior lefthander, also earned the win by pitching the final 11/3 innings for Holy Cross (5-1)
