At some point early in the second half, Mike Reardon lifted his balky right shoulder and tapped his coach on the back. "He told me he wanted more minutes," West Deptford boys' lacrosse coach Mike Yarusso. After breaking his right collarbone in his team's final preseason game, Reardon hadn't even gone full-contact in practice before Saturday's game at Haddonfield. This was his first game back, and his playing time was supposed to be spotty. "The doctors told me it wasn't smart to even play at all this season," Reardon said.

THROUGH ONE quarter, the Haddonfield High football team thought it had felt a comfort zone on the home turf of West Deptford.

"Honestly, that first half, it's a third-down game there," Haddonfield coach Frank Delano said. "Twice on that drive it was double sticks, third-and-12 or third-and-14, and they converted.

If it's tough to separate the DePersia twins on the hardwood, it might be more difficult off the court. Nick and Rob DePersia sleep in the same room, attend the same classes, listen to the same music, like the same television shows, and hang out with the same friends. "We pretty much have the same personality," Rob DePersia said. "We even laugh at the same jokes. " His younger (by seven minutes) brother confirms that. "Sometimes we'll be in class and somebody will say something and we'll just look at each other and smile," Nick DePersia said.

He has rushed for 309 yards on just 14 carries as Haddonfield has broken to a 2-0 start. "Just following my blocks," Dengler said. Haddonfield coach Frank DeLano said Dengler's fast start is the result of more than good blocking.
