The Cherokee band kept playing, but it didn't stop the energy from draining out of the stadium. A Timber Creek offense known for its flash, for its big plays and gaudy numbers, was lulling a rowdy crowd to sleep. The game-winning drive was methodical. It was smash mouth. It was slow. It was boring. And it worked. "It shows," said Chargers coach Rob Hinson, "that we can play any style we need to. " Timber Creek, the second-ranked team in the Inquirer's top 25, topped No. 9 Cherokee, 28-21, on Friday night thanks to an 80-yard drive that lasted 19 plays and consumed 10 minutes of the fourth quarter.

This was billed as a classic clash of styles - run vs. pass. And in this instance, the pass won by a knockout. Timber Creek unveiled its 2016 passing attack, and it looked better than the 2015 version, which is saying something. Junior Devin Leary, coming off a season in which he threw for 2,605 yards and 23 touchdowns, appeared intent on reaching those figures - in the first half. Timber Creek trailed, 7-6, after the first quarter and then turned on the jets during a 54-28 win Friday night over host Delsea in a West Jersey Football League National Division game between defending South Jersey champions.

Nobody talks about Devin Leary's arm. Timber Creek coach Rob Hinson mentions Leary's unheralded athletic ability and leadership qualities. Chargers wide receiver Ezrah Archie touts Leary's work ethic and understanding of the game. Leary spends most of his time crediting his offensive linemen, receivers and coaches for putting him in position to become the most prolific passer in the history of South Jersey football. But Leary's right arm deserves some credit, too. It's the right arm that made him a youth-league legend when he threw for about 50 touchdown passes as an eighth grader.
