Neither team left the other time to breathe. A basket. Answered by another. Quick strike followed by quick strike in rapid-fire progression that left spectators and competitors dizzy. Until it came down to this. A prescient judgment and a nod probably determined one of the best high school basketball games - boys or girls - this season, when Downingtown squeezed by Cardinal O'Hara, 80-77, on Saturday . The game matched the No. 1 (Downingtown) and No. 2 (O'Hara) teams in Southeastern Pennsylvania as ranked by The Inquirer.

First it was bear claws. Now wild rabbits have closed a Chinese restaurant in Camden County. The latest restaurant ordered closed was the China Flower on Kings Highway in Mount Ephraim, according to Robert Pirrotta, county health department supervisor. Pirrotta said the China Flower was closed Friday after unskinned, ungutted rabbits were found in the restaurant's freezer. Since the animals were frozen together, he said he isn't sure how many rabbits there were. Jong K. Chin, the China Flower's owner, told inspectors the rabbits were for personal use and were not on the menu.

The average man spends more than three months shopping for a car before buying one, tracking his prey like a hunter and even skulking around dealerships after hours, a survey said yesterday. "Men hunt for cars the way an experienced tracker hunts for wild game," said Mike Lafavore, editor for Men's Health magazine which published the J.D. Power and Associates survey. "They spend a lot of time just planning their attack, arming thsmselves with the necessary weapons and stalking their prey when hopefully it can't see them," he added.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission says it is still investigating, but it appears that a Western Pennsylvania hunter using a crossbow shot another man in the thigh after mistaking him for a deer. Authorities aren't releasing the names of either man while the investigation continues. The injury happened at dusk, about 5 p.m. Monday, in a wooded area of North Union Township, about 40 miles south of Pittsburgh. Monday was the last day of deer archery season in that part of the state. Officials say the 59-year-old hunter apparently mistook the victim, who is believed to be 18 or 19, for wild game.

When I was a kid growing up in the Midwest, the word "cutlet" had a very special and specific meaning. Cutlets were my very favorite cut of meat. They were always breaded with cracker crumbs, fried crisp and served with a heaping pile of mashed potatoes and lots of gravy. They were also always pork. More specifically, they were little nuggets of pork meat that came from either the temple of the pig's head or the cheek. The temple cutlets were the best, but both were wonderful. Cutlets of that kind are hard to find in today's marketplace, but cutlets of all other kinds are available everywhere.

While growing up on a cattle ranch in Kenya's Rift Valley, David Hopcraft watched the vegetation on the rangeland disintegrate. He still remembers what his great-aunt told him after the first dust storm ever to hit the area. She spoke of riding horses across the same land 25 years earlier. The grass was up to the horse's belly. "Everybody said it was just overgrazing, and I accepted that explanation," Hopcraft recalls now. Hopcraft has spent his adult life searching for a more complete answer to the encroaching desertification that, according to U.N. figures, threatens 90 percent of the world's rangelands.

It's not that I hate hunters; I just hate hunting. Here in South Jersey, going after wild game is too often a wild game in itself. The peace of our pinewoods province is invaded annually by average humans who become predators more animalistic than their prey. They conduct a deer roundup that is much like an African jungle expedition. The major difference is that tribesmen go after game for food, while these local yokels are most concerned with impressing one another with their marksmanship, which sometimes gets sidetracked and threatens pets that get in the way. Gangs of hunters stand along our country roads, stationed within sight of each other, and proceed to behave like hedonistic Hottentots.

Ryan Hubley spent much of the weekend receiving congratulatory texts, phone calls, and Twitter and Facebook messages. All the attention was deserved, as the senior wide receiver from Oxford set a new single-game state record while making seven touchdown catches in a thrilling, 53-47 triumph over host Kennett in a Ches-Mont League American Conference opener Friday night.

With three seconds left in regulation, her team down by two points, Alex Seedes was whistled for a charge under the basket. The Lenape girls' basketball team had blown a nine-point lead during a chaotic, emotional final period against Williamstown. And that final charge call would surely put the game out of reach. For some Lenape players, frustration boiled over in that moment - they scuffled with opposing players near the baseline. Others stood idle, stunned and dejected. "I just never stopped believing.

LANDOVER, Md. - The right leg of Robert Griffin III buckled into the ground Sunday, unable to pivot with the rest of his body. The star rookie who led the Washington Redskins to their first NFC East title since 1999 already had issues with his knee, but this injury appeared more serious. It forced Griffin to leave the game in the fourth quarter, and the Redskins' hopes disintegrated. The Seattle Seahawks came away with a 24-14 win in the wild-card round of the NFC playoffs. "I'm the quarterback of this team - my job is to be out there if I can play," Griffin said.

The relieved reliever gave his Detroit teammates a reason to laugh in the ninth inning of a tight game. Moments later, the Tigers were celebrating. Don Kelly scored the tying run on a wild pitch in the eighth, then hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth that lifted the Tigers over the Oakland Athletics, 5-4, on Sunday for a 2-0 lead in their AL playoff series.

The pain in his back was constant. His knee? It was throbbing through 45 minutes of soccer Tuesday at Haddon Township. Anthony Colofranson makes three weekly trips to a chiropractor for an injury that the doctors have yet to pinpoint, but he refuses to miss playing time for Gateway. Dreaming of moments such as Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win makes it easy to play through the pain.

In total, the senior forward netted four goals, including the equalizer and the winner - making the pain he felt all worthwhile.
