It strikes with alarming precision, not allowing a defense to catch its breath by executing a breathtaking hurry-up offense. Woodrow Wilson High's football team exudes speed, stamina, and - most of all - scoring. And last night, the Tigers displayed some of their explosive offense in a 38-6 triumph over host Triton in an Olympic Conference National Division game. Wilson, No. 3 in The Inquirer's South Jersey ratings, is 5-0 overall and 4-0 in the division. The Mustangs dropped to 1-4, 1-3. Triton opened the game with a 15-play drive that took 7 minutes, 10 seconds.

Kevin Bucceroni knew it was more than just another game. "I grew up with all these kids," Bucceroni said. "Middle school, elementary school, midget football. I've known these kids my whole life. " It was Triton vs. Highland, a renewal of a district rivalry that was a mix of old-school, backyard familiarity, and new-age, one-upmanship - thanks to a Twitter war that broke out on Friday afternoon. "I'm not going to say our guys weren't involved," Bucceroni, a senior running back and linebacker, said after leading Triton to a 32-6 victory Friday night.

There are two weeks until the cutoff date for football playoffs, and for the second straight week, Triton not only won a big game, but it severely hurt the hopes of a fellow contender for one of the eight Group 3 playoff spots. On Friday, Triton beat Moorestown, 22-10, handing the Quakers their fourth loss. The week before, Triton gave Winslow Township its fourth loss in a 15-13 victory.

Last May, after averaging 21.4 points, 9 rebounds and 2.8 blocks a game for Triton, Michele Matyasovsky did something you wouldn't expect from a player who had accomplished so much. She turned 15. Matyasovsky had achieved those numbers as a freshman. She also led the team in assists and earned third-team all-South Jersey honors. "I think without question she is the best player in South Jersey," Highland coach Dan McGettigan said. "She's one of the top two in New Jersey.

It was not simply another game, even to point guard Megan Light, who usually shows little emotion - but plenty of offensive firepower.

Some teams ease into the season, like a cautious swimmer taking one step at a time into a built-in pool. Triton was shoved into the deep end. Three of the Mustangs' first four boys' basketball games were against Paul VI, Bishop Eustace, and Eastern, the top three teams in The Inquirer's preseason South Jersey rankings. The other was against a Woodrow Wilson team that opened 5-0. "They didn't do us any favors," Triton coach Butch McLean said after his team beat Cherokee, 63-60, Friday night in an Olympic Conference interdivision game.

Billy Jackson knew this wasn't a typical playoff opener between a No. 15 seed and a No. 2 seed. The Highland senior second baseman knew that seeds and records and recent history don't mean a whole lot when his school plays Triton in any sport. "It's a sister school," Jackson said. "Our fans know their fans, the players know each other. "There's so much between the two schools. You knew it would be like this. " With Jackson and senior shortstop Collin Bishop combining for five RBIs out of the top two spots in the lineup, Highland survived a serious scare from Triton and advanced with a 7-6 victory Monday in the first round of the South Jersey Group 3 tournament.

For Christian Scafidi, the most important number on Tuesday night wasn't 29 or 22 or even 1,000. Scafidi, a senior forward at Highland, scored 29 points and had 22 rebounds to lead the Tartans to a 73-46 victory over school district rival Triton. Scafidi grabbed the 1,000th rebound of his remarkable career. But those numbers didn't matter much to him. He was more focused on 15. That was how many years it had been since Highland won a division title before the Tartans clinched the Tri-County Royal crown outright in front of a large crowd in Triton's Harry T.

At a team meeting on Monday, Washington Township coach Mark Wechter asked his players to close their eyes and envision beating Timber Creek. On a rainy and windy Friday night, the Minutemen outdid their own imaginations. Scoring what Wechter called "a big statement win for our program," Washington Township used a 72-yard interception return for touchdown by Matteo Murgia on the first play of the third overtime for a 28-22 victory over perennial South Jersey power Timber Creek. Murgia's walk-off return triggered a wild celebration for the Minutemen and their fans and left Wechter "too choked up" to talk very much to his players after the game.

After a moment of silence just before the opening kickoff, Woodrow Wilson juniors Jaheem Bullard and Jamaad Cato both pointed to the sky in honor of their late brother.
