The high-powered offense didn't put up the amount of points it customarily did this season, but it didn't matter. A special 2012 campaign for Widener football lives on for at least another week in large part because of its defense. Facing a triple-option offense for the first time didn't faze the Pride. Behind a stout defensive showing on Saturday afternoon, ninth-ranked Widener (12-0) advanced to the quarterfinals of the Division III NCAA tournament with a 28-7 win over 11th-ranked Salisbury at Quick Stadium.

ISSAC COLLINS came to Widener 3 years ago with a plan. He figured it would take him 3 years to have the Pride "competing" for a Middle Atlantic Conference title. He was wrong. In his first season, Widener went from 3-7 to 5-5. But in the finale, it did beat the champions, Del Val, on a two-point conversion with no time left. Last year it improved to 9-2, losing at Del Val for the title after leading by 14. This year, expectations were understandably high. No problem. The Pride has won all 10, many comfortably and a few where they had to pull off near-miracles at the end. And at noon on Saturday, they will host Salisbury (9-2)

Springfield's offensive woes continued, and so did the team's losing trend. The visiting Spartans (1-9) were shut out for the seventh time this season as they fell, 40-0, Friday to Salisbury. The Falcons (2-9) jumped out to an early lead with a 14-yard run by quarterback Matt Daley. Greg Gibbs, who finished with 100 yards on 17 carries, then rushed for a 2-yard score late in the first quarter, putting the Falcons ahead by 12-0. Two of Daley's 15 pass completions were for touchdowns, both to Chris Burda in the second quarter, and the Spartans were hopelessly behind by 26-0 at the half.

With its tidy, whitewashed shops and rebuilt 18th-century town hall, Salisbury could be a movie set for the ideal New England village. Situated in the far northwestern corner of Connecticut, this is an elegant country town. One would be surprised to see a real farmer walk down Main Street; a BMW fits this place better than a John Deere. Just a four-hour drive from Philadelphia, Salisbury is a good place to begin a weekend in the Southern Berkshires. One could easily spend two days in this picturesque village or use it as a starting point, as we did on two recent trips, for a tour of other country towns.

Morrisville's defense did its best impression of a rubber band Friday night in a 14-13 nonleague victory over Salisbury. The Bulldogs' defense stretched to 259 total yards and permitted three Salisbury drives of at least 12 plays. But when things got serious, Morrisville's (1-0) defense held. The timely defensive surges were spearheaded by junior linebacker Jason Bresnen, the man who new coach Ron Dilks says makes his defense "click. " Bresnen was just given clearance to play Thursday, after rehabilitation of a fractured right ankle he suffered during the summer.

An unbending defense and a pair of Troy Wilson touchdowns gave Morrisville a 14-0 win in its season opener at Salisbury on Saturday. "We knew our defense was strong, but our offense struggled in the first half," said Bulldogs coach Tim Landis. "We were trying to do too many things - throw the pass, run the reverse. "We had no steady diet of anything. At halftime, our offensive coordinator, Steve Zoldi, decided to stay with the basics. We ran some power and the basic option.

In A Journey for Our Times, former New York Times foreign correspondent and associate editor Harrison E. Salisbury in 1983 described his first encounter, in 1955, with his future wife, Charlotte. "No one I had met before had spoken with such cool and perfect honesty, the words tart and fresh, in a light but unmistakable Boston accent, the opinions warm, no qualifications. "I had never before found a woman who would stand up to the devil (or Henry Kissinger) and tell the truth to his face.
