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)

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. The Chargers excelled on offense, defense, and special teams in an imposing 33-7 victory over Hammonton on Saturday in the South Jersey Group 3 title game. "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.

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.

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.

The Winslow Township baseball team was hot. The Timber Creek baseball team was not. The Eagles were riding high after consecutive shutout victories over Bishop Eustace and Seneca by a combined score of 12-0. The Chargers were coming off a 10-0 loss to Eastern. But this just in: Baseball is a funny game. "This was a huge win for us," Timber Creek coach John Gladden said after his squad's 4-3 victory over visiting Winslow Township in an Olympic Conference National Division game Friday afternoon.

First he was making some alert plays on defense, then Kareem Ali returned a kick for a good distance and was congratulated by his new teammates. Running around on this breezy March day earlier this week, Ali sure didn't look like a freshman, but that is indeed what he is. While the rest of the people Ali began classes with at Timber Creek in September are finishing their senior year, he has accelerated the process, having graduated early and now...

The unmistakable feeling was that with just one more minute - perhaps even less than that - Timber Creek would be playing for a state championship on Sunday. The Chargers had Middletown South on the ropes Thursday night when the clock cut short a furious comeback attempt, ending Timber Creek's season with a 51-48 loss in the state Group 3 semifinals at Deptford. After the game, Brittany Martin, as she has been for the last four years, was the face of her team's effort. She bent over, hands on her knees - partly out of frustration, but mostly because she had just left every ounce of energy she had on the court.

At the end of the game, there were hugs and high fives, and crowds orbiting around Brittany Martin. But for a few brief moments, her father, Mike, managed to pull her aside, alone near midcourt. The two were face to face. Father was talking, daughter was listening. Such a unique milestone, it seemed, offered an irresistible parenting moment. "He was just telling me that all the hard work is finally paying off," Brittany Martin said. "He said that for the past four years, all the extra hours I put in - actually, even before high school - is now paying off. " Hard work has been something of a family slogan for the Martin family.

It's a toss-up whether Dikemba Amugo did his best work in the final two minutes of Friday night's pulse-pounding playoff game with his shoes on the ground or three feet in the air. But there's no doubt that Timber Creek needed its senior star to deliver in both ways. "It was the big fella," Timber Creek coach Rich Bolds said after Amugo led the Chargers to a 61-57 victory over school-district rival Highland in a South Jersey Group 3 second-round thriller. "He took us home. " Amugo, a 6-foot-5 senior, generated 14 points, seven rebounds and six blocks for fourth-seeded Timber Creek (12-13)

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.
