Bobbi Beck pitched for Absegami on Wednesday afternoon, and as has been the case lately, she led the Braves to a win. Beck continued her dominance from the circle as the host Braves downed Holy Spirit, 4-0, in a Cape-Atlantic American softball game. The win was the third straight for the Braves, and Beck has earned the victory in each game. She scattered three hits and struck out seven in her shutout. Beck has gotten stingier in each of her last three starts, allowing two runs to Deptford and one to Atlantic County Tech before Wednesday's outing.

A coach might see at it as undisciplined. Opponents might call them cheap shots. To the naked eye, it was obviously unbridled energy - the sources of which were numerous for the West Deptford boys' lacrosse team. "This is our biggest rival," senior Nick Ellis said. "On top of that, we haven't gotten off to the start we wanted to; we expected to have a winning record at this point. And we leave for our senior trip [Saturday], so we wanted to make sure we left on a good note. " Despite a seemingly endless string of slashing and illegal-check calls, the Eagles channeled enough energy in the right direction, running circles around visiting Haddonfield in a 13-5 win Friday night.

Egg Harbor Township pitcher Jordan Wisser entered the baseball game in a big spot. With his team up by three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, Wisser inherited a two-out, bases-loaded situation against host Cherokee on Saturday. After allowing a two-run single and a walk, Wisser forced a groundout to get the save and give Egg Harbor a 3-2 nonleague win. Teammate Todd Henry knocked in two runs on a two-out triple in the fifth inning, and that proved to be the difference.

The best football fields and basketball courts are the same rectangular shape. Baseball fields are different. Like some football fields and basketball courts, many of the best baseball fields in South Jersey are notable for their location, backdrop, and the way their surroundings impact the fan and playing experience. But some baseball fields are truly different - with odd shapes and unusual dimensions, with short porches in right field, and wide variations in the amount of foul territory behind home plate and along both baselines.

WEST DEPTFORD Unlike many New Jersey towns that have shunned medical marijuana dispensaries, saying their laws prohibited the business, this Gloucester County township is about to pass an ordinance specifically allowing dispensaries in an industrial zone. Anthony Ogozalek, the town lawyer who drafted the law, said he doesn't know of any other municipality in New Jersey that has taken a similar step. But he said West Deptford officials wanted to "be proactive" and establish restrictions on where a dispensary can open if an operator approaches the town.
