With a pair of fortuitous bounces, Washington Township made school history Monday by beating Absegami, 1-0, to win the South Jersey Group 4 soccer crown. Eric Jordan scored the Minutemen's lone goal with 15 minutes left in the first half.

Absegami threatened to tie the game with 10 minutes left in the contest.

Dave Righetti views his latest comeback as a can't-lose situation. "If I get clobbered, everybody expects it. If I do good, then I'm ahead of the game," the lefthander said yesterday after he won again in his remarkable rebirth as a starter, beating the Cleveland Indians, 5-1, and giving the visiting Chicago White Sox their first win in seven games at Jacobs Field. With a steady wind blowing in from right-centerfield, the 36-year-old Righetti (3-0) limited baseball's best-hitting team to one run and six hits in five-plus innings.

The Falcons (10-1, 10-1) lead the Patriot Division. "Kristin throws hard, and we just think that she and Meredith (Barker)

It wasn't the most exciting, and it lacked the scoring punch of the other periods, but the third quarter of its 12-6 win at Springfield (Delco) was perhaps the most emblematic reason that Downingtown East continued to roll Saturday in boys' lacrosse. After building an 8-2 halftime lead in the nonleague game, East (8-3) dominated possession for nearly 11 of the 12 third-quarter minutes, practically camping in Springfield's defensive zone. Oddly, Springfield (7-3) had scored the stanza's first goal, with 1 minute, 17 seconds to go. But East wasted little time in re-extending its lead to six. Junior midfielder Kyle Lauletta netted his third goal of the game by posting up a Springfield defender, like a power forward on the low block, before slinging the ball past goalie Jeremy Cavanaugh just 26 seconds later.

It isn't often that a freshman inspires an opponent to trot out a box-and- one defense, but Williamstown did just that yesterday in its nonleague girls' basketball game against Gloucester. And it worked. The host Braves held Gloucester's Megan Light to 14 points - 10 under her average - and beat the Lions, 52-38. "Deisha Galberth did a real good job on her," said Williamstown coach Nancy Manzoni, whose team improved to 15-3. "We wanted to get a hand in Megan's face all the time.

The ominous letter from the prosecutor's office was addressed to her grandfather, Albert Lachowicz, but it came to Jennifer Paczan because she was handling his finances. Even five years later, the Pennsylvania woman still recalls her reactions: first worried, then confused, and, finally, outraged on his behalf. The letter was signed by Beaver County District Attorney Anthony J. Berosh, and was on the D.A.'s letterhead. It said Berosh's office had received reports alleging that Lachowicz had engaged in "criminal activity" by "issuing a fraudulent check.

School officials looking into the two-week absence of the brother of a 3-year-old boy who was beaten to death visited an outdated address because the boys' mother did not tell the school that she had moved, officials said Thursday. The boy who was slain and his 6-year-old brother were abused by their mother and her boyfriend, according to police. "The school did the appropriate thing by doing the home visit," said Michael Noone, first assistant district attorney in Chester County.

Before the game, on the sideline, some Hammonton football players said, "There will be no 36 tonight. " They were referring to Clearview's scoring average in the first three games. Since Hammonton had yielded only a third of that total combined in its first four games, it was a pretty good bet that the Blue Devils would make good on their pregame vow. And they did. Continuing a season-long dominance on defense, efficiency on offense, and proficiency on special teams, Hammonton defeated visiting Clearview, 31-6, Friday night in a West Jersey Football League National Division game.

THE NEW YORK Red Bulls' position in the standings doesn't necessarily jump off the page, but a simple glance at the MLS statistical leaderboard serves as a reminder of the club's firepower. Bradley Wright-Phillips and Thierry Henry will arrive at PPL Park tonight as the league's leaders in goals and assists, respectively. Thwarting their efforts will be crucial for the Union (4-8-7) in what interim manager Jim Curtin yesterday deemed "a real swing game" regarding the direction of his team's season.

NEW YORK - If the Flyers are going to win their first-round playoff matchup with the New York Rangers, they are going to have to get their top line untracked. In the Rangers' 4-1 opening-game win Thursday, the Rangers primarily used the fourth line of Brian Boyle, Dominic Moore, and Derek Dorsett - and defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi - to shut down Claude Giroux and his linemates, Scott Hartnell and Jake Voracek. The Giroux line was pointless and combined for just two shots - both by Hartnell.

Each side thought it had enough votes. But after months of heated debate, the New Jersey Pinelands Commission was split Friday over a proposed gas pipeline through the environmentally sensitive Pinelands - an outcome that ultimately blocks a project supported by the Christie administration. The commissioners - in a room in Pemberton Township crowded with about 100 vocal, sign-carrying pipeline opponents and supporters - explained their views, then cast seven votes for and seven against a variance that would have allowed work to proceed.

At times, this season has been frustrating for the Strath Haven girls' soccer team. It might not be obvious from the Panthers' record or from their second straight Central League championship, but ask seniors Bri Irons and Allie Wilson about the squad's offensive production this year and you get the sense that it has been a trying 16 games. With scoring the Panthers' main problem entering Thursday's nonleague game against Pennsbury, a 3-0 victory was a sigh of relief, a momentum builder, and just what Strath Haven needed entering the District 1 Class AAA tournament.

Tuukka Rask kept Sidney Crosby and the rest of the NHL's top offense in check once again, stopping 26 shots. Game 3 is Wednesday night in Boston.

    The Montgomery County Election Board hit a major snag Thursday when it learned it might be too late to move several polling places. Under state law, counties must post a public notice 20 days before the election if any polling place is to be moved. The May 21 election is now 19 days away. After recessing to consult with their solicitor, the board members voted unanimously to approve the relocation of eight sites. Election Board Chairwoman Leslie Richards called those "unavoidable changes" that qualify for an exception to the 20-day limit.
