It took every inch for Megan Gipe to get the ball to Hannah Cressman, but once she received the pass, the junior delivered when it mattered most. Gipe dribbled the length of the field and sent a pass to Cressman, who scored the winner in the second overtime of No. 4 Pitman's 2-1 victory over top-seeded host Clayton on Wednesday in a South Jersey Group 1 field hockey semifinal. Olivia Amwake got Pitman on the board in the first half to start the scoring. Later in the half, Natalie Warner tied the match off an assist from Allison Reuter.

The governing bodies in two Gloucester County towns that only recently came under Republican control will revert to Democratic majorities as a result of this year's general election, according to results posted Tuesday night. Voters in West Deptford and Washington Township narrowly swung Democratic, just a few years after residents in both municipalities handed control to the GOP. In West Deptford, the three-year Republican domination was halted as Mayor Ray Chintall and Committeeman John Keuler Jr. lost to Democratic challengers Adam Reid and James Mehaffey.

In a year in which the South Jersey Group 2 football field is the deepest it's been in recent memory, nobody should forget an old, familiar name: West Deptford. Rare is the year when the Eagles don't enter the playoffs as the favorite. But few will relish facing the Eagles - and for good reason. One of South Jersey's top programs punched its playoff ticket with Friday night's 34-7 win over visiting Collingswood in a Colonial Conference matchup. West Deptford is 7-1 and has a bye next weekend, which happens to be the playoff cutoff date, when the teams with the top eight power ratings will qualify.

The free bottled water that has been offered for months in Paulsboro in response to a contaminant in the water supply will come to an end Saturday. The discontinuation follows a letter from the state Department of Environmental Protection to the borough Water Department last month lifting a water advisory. The department "does not believe it is necessary to continue the restriction on the consumption of drinking water in Paulsboro," said the Oct. 3 letter from Fred Sickels, director of the DEP's Division of Water Supply and Geoscience.

Kadene McNeil's excitement was clear. "It's my first game," she said when Lindenwold coach Christine Jones told her she'd play in the girls' soccer season finale at West Deptford on Thursday. McNeil, a junior in Lindenwold's special-education program, played in the first soccer game of her life during West Deptford's 6-1 Colonial Conference victory. She also scored her first goal. With a comfortable lead, the Eagles pulled their goalie late. McNeil, who regularly practices with the Lions, dribbled down the field and scored.

Here's a closer look at seven South Jersey football games on Friday night, with predictions. All games will kick off at 7 o'clock. No. 24 Collingswood (5-1) at No. 7 West Deptford (6-1). The visiting Panthers have won four in a row, allowing a total of just 22 points. Senior linebacker Dashon Burdett has sparked the defense. Collingswood has a lot on the line. The Panthers have not beaten the Eagles since 1998, losing 15 in a row, and probably need to win this game and their Nov. 7 home game vs. Woodbury to qualify for the South Jersey Group 2 tournament.

Jahmir King finally stopped. The Collingswood running back they call "Turbo" found a lane between three defenders and went untouched for 60 yards, but he quickly hit the brakes when he reached the end zone. He turned around, crossed his arms, and waited for the rest of his team to celebrate with him in the end zone. That seemed to be the way to go Saturday afternoon. Patience paid off for him and his team all day. Collingswood divided 32 carries among nine ballcarriers, and, when he got his turn, King was the fourth Panther to run for a touchdown in a 41-0 win at Audubon in a Colonial Conference Liberty matchup.
