Timber Creek softball coach Marci Logan let Brianna Fisher work through her struggles Saturday, and it paid off. Fisher pitched all seven innings and had an RBI double as the hosts won the Charger Classic final over Woodstown, 9-7. Woodstown entered the seventh inning down by four runs and closed the gap to two. Fisher withstood the late rally by getting a fly ball to right field with a runner on base to end it.

Surrounded by offensive weapons - including multiple Division I-caliber wide receivers - Timber Creek's 5-foot-11 quarterback, Dan Williams, is easy to overlook at first. But it's impossible to overlook him after you've seen him play. He's strong. He's fast. He's accurate. And on Friday night, in front of a packed crowd on the road, Williams was also an efficient game manager, leading Timber Creek (3-1), ranked No. 4 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, to a 25-18 win over No. 2 Williamstown (3-1)

On a September night that felt like October, Timber Creek looked to be in December form. Dan Williams attributed that to April and May. "You work hard in April and May, then you're ready to ball out in September," Williams said after leading visiting Timber Creek to a 34-7 victory over Camden Catholic in the West Jersey Football League Constitution Division opener for both teams on Friday night. Williams, a senior quarterback who passed for five touchdowns in last season's South Jersey Group 4 title game, picked up where he left off last December with a sensational performance: 22-for-28 passing for 279 yards and three touchdowns.

They saved their best for last. They capped a perfect season with a priceless performance. Timber Creek played its best football of the long season at the end of a long weekend of championship competition at Rowan University.

"They did everything," Hammonton coach Pete Lancetta said. "They were just too much for us. " Senior Calvin Lowe was 8 for 12 passing for 167 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score as Timber Creek completed a 12-0 season and captured the first sectional title in the history of the program.

It was the surest sign that Amanda Riiff would start the game hot. "I couldn't hit a shot in warm-ups," she said. "Nothing. " In four seasons as one of the area's top outside shooters, Riiff has been nothing if not resilient. The trick, she said, is to keep your confidence. "I knew I could do it," said Riiff, a senior guard. "I just kept shooting, and when the game started, I felt it. " Riiff hit the first two shots she took, both three-pointers, and ultimately shot 4 for 7 from beyond the arc - in the first quarter - to send top-seeded Timber Creek to a 63-49 win over No. 8 Seneca on Wednesday night in the quarterfinals of the South Jersey Group 3 tournament.

Three racks of six basketballs were stationed around the three-point arc. It felt as if they were miles apart. And Timber Creek's Brittany Martin looked as if she could have used a taxi ride to each one. She wasn't nervous, she said. She was in too much pain to be nervous. Walking was no easy task, and it showed. Jumping was out of the question. The South Jersey Invitational Basketball Tournament's annual three-point contest had been whittled down to two from a field of 109. Martin wasn't stopping now. "I went back to the basics," she said.

Before Saturday morning's game against Cherokee, Timber Creek's Brittany Martin paid a visit to a shot doctor. The last time she played Cherokee, on Jan. 15, she was more in need of an actual doctor. Timber Creek lost to the Chiefs that day and Martin scored just six points - unheard of for the superstar guard. At the time, she was battling a virus that kept her out of school for the better part of two weeks. "I didn't feel like myself at all," Martin said. "So our motto for this game was, 'Redemption.' "I spent some time with my shooting doctor just this morning.

It didn't seem to matter who took the shot for Shawnee. And that was the point. A host of teammates helped build a lead early in the game when the team's star player got into foul trouble. And when Timber Creek made a late push, every player on the Shawnee girls' basketball team responded as the Renegades, ranked No. 2 in South Jersey by the Inquirer, walked away a 52-39 winner at home over the fifth-ranked Chargers on Tuesday night. "We trust each other. These are the situations we work on in practice, and I knew we could pull this win out," said senior point guard Taylor Ryan.

Kareem Ali is ahead of the curve. Ali is a senior at Timber Creek High School - for another six days, anyway. Ali will graduate from Timber Creek on Friday and enroll at Temple University on a football scholarship on Jan. 20. "It's exciting," said Ali, a first-team all-South Jersey defensive back. "This is something I wanted to do, get an early start. " Ali took extra courses over the summer to be able to graduate early.
