Driving home after another Shawnee football victory, Jake Parola was struck by a seemingly odd but strangely familiar sight. Odd, because there was Parola's teammate and classmate, David Smith, on the ground under somebody else's vehicle. Familiar, because that was typical of Smith. "That's Dave," Parola said. "He's always helping somebody out. " Before long, both Smith and Parola were on the cold, dark ground on the side of Tabernacle Road, fixing a flat for the grandparents of a player from the opposing team.

Lenape football coach Tim McAneney has done a masterful job all season, and he was just as impressive during his postgame talk to the team Thursday. He spoke from the heart after a 10-7 victory at Shawnee, his squad's traditional Thanksgiving rival. "Seniors, forever you will remember this day, this game," he said. "The fellowship you have with each other is the most important, gentlemen. " There are so many reasons that this was such an emotional win. First, it came against Shawnee, a team that still owns a 34-8-2 edge in this rivalry.

Kiley Graham vowed she would be the Shawnee field hockey team's loudest cheerleader. Little did Graham know that she would be the player responsible for the biggest ovation. The freshman forward came off the bench to score the decisive goal with 24 minutes left in regulation time as the third-seeded Renegades knocked off top-seeded Cherokee yesterday, 1-0, in the Central Jersey Group 4 championship game. Shawnee (18-3-2) will meet Eastern (20-0-0), the South Jersey champion, in a state Group 4 semifinal Wednesday at Cherokee.

The chatter in the stands before the game was that lightning was coming, no doubt about it. Long before the first raindrop, there was talk of when and what time the game would be rescheduled, because it was going to be rescheduled - that much was certain. Rain came. Lightning never did. Some things in life, it turns out, are more reliable than a weather forecast. Take the Shawnee running game, for instance. The Renegades' rushing attack gashed Kingsway for four quarters, leading them to a 25-19 road win on opening night of the 2013 football season.

For a team that is making its first-ever appearance in the South Jersey Boys' Soccer Coaches Tournament, Camden Catholic sure wants to prolong its stay. While some teams look at the coaches tournament as a secondary event behind the state tournament, Camden Catholic views it on equal footing - and its enthusiasm is obvious. The Irish scored two goals in the first four minutes and continued their record-setting season with yesterday's 6-0 shutout of Delran in a coaches tournament semifinal at Sterling.

The Beach Ball Classic, considered high school's answer to March Madness, will have an all Philadelphia-area final tonight. Second-seeded Shawnee did its part in last night's second semifinal with an impressive 52-44 victory over Artesia, of Lakewood, Calif. The Renegades (4-0) will meet Simon Gratz, the nation's top-rated team and a 66-45 winner last night over Westover of Albany, Ga. "Gratz is awesome," said Shawnee coach Joe Kessler. "We're going to have to play real well to be in the game, but stranger things have happened.

When Tim Gushue first sat down with his assistants to discuss the boys' track and field season, the longtime Shawnee coach wasn't optimistic. "The outlook back in February was pretty bleak," Gushue said. "So I'm really pleased with the outcome. " That outcome, at least for the regular season, was finalized Monday when the Renegades clinched a share of their second division title. Going into the final day of dual-meet competition, Shawnee was tied with Eastern and Lenape atop the Olympic Conference American Division.

The last time Shawnee and Rancocas Valley met in boys' basketball, they produced one of the most memorable games in recent South Jersey playoff history. Rancocas Valley beat the Renegades, 74-72, in double overtime for last year's South Jersey Group 4 championship. The two will renew their rivalry at 1 p.m. tomorrow in a nonconference game at Shawnee. Last year, Shawnee lost just twice all season, and both losses were to Rancocas Valley. Beating the Red Devils will be no easier this year.

Jake Parola had a great game in the third quarter: 19 carries, 109 yards, two touchdowns.

"He's an animal," senior offensive tackle Eric Hawkinson said of Parola.

It is a story of remarkable consistency, so it shouldn't be surprising that Shawnee's football team has yet to collect the uniforms. The Renegades (10-1) will face Timber Creek (11-0) in the South Jersey Group 4 final at 3:30 p.m. Sunday. For the Renegades, it is their 10th sectional-final appearance in the last 20 years. Considering Shawnee annually plays among the most difficult schedules in South Jersey, that is truly an amazing feat. All this has come under Tim Gushue, a 1972 graduate of Shawnee who is in his 32d year as head coach.

Another player might have wondered, "Why?" Lizzie Kinkler figured, "Why not?" Kinkler, a senior midfielder, buried a left-footed shot from around 20 yards to lift Lenape to a 1-0 victory over Shawnee on Friday in the championship game of the South Jersey Group 4 girls' soccer tournament. "I was around the 18, and the ball came right to me," said Kinkler, a Wake Forest recruit. "I was going to cross it but I thought, 'Why not take a shot?' "I nailed it. " Kinkler's goal with 3 minutes, 45 seconds remaining in the second half was the difference in a hard-fought, well-played game between familiar rivals on a cold, clear afternoon on the Indians' grass field.

The Shawnee girls' cross-country team always searches for inspiration entering its state meets. Last season, the runners tied multicolored ribbons around their shoes, with each color representing a different virtue, such as courage or passion. Sometimes they write small messages on their hands. Once it was trust, as in trust in teammates, coaching, and training. This season, what they chose for inspiration is visible to everyone. Each of the runners at last Saturday's sectionals at Delsea used blue glitter glue to write a 22 on the back of her left leg and a 24 on the right.

Her knees were slightly bent. Her feet were in constant motion, chopping up and down in place. She was bent over slightly at the waist, and her hands were pointed straight down as her arms flopped back and forth, clapping rhythmically. She stared straight ahead at the shooter. She seemed in complete control, locked in. Why would a team take out its star goalkeeper - one of South Jersey's best - when a playoff game goes into penalty kicks, replacing her with an untested sophomore?

It has been sort of a running joke on the Shawnee football team. Dave Smith had talked about it for weeks. If the opportunity ever presented itself, Smith would take it. It was a promise Smith's coaches seemed to take half seriously. And with his team huddled around him after the win, Shawnee coach Tim Gushue laughed and made it clear: "I want everyone to know - we did not call that fake punt. " After Cherokee tied the game in the third quarter, Smith took matters into his own hands on fourth and 7 with his team in punt formation.
