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.

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.

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.

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.
