At the conclusion of Delsea's easy 28-0 Tri-County Conference Royal Division win over Williamstown yesterday, coach John Oberg was hoisted on his players' shoulders and carried off the field in triumph. This was no ordinary opening-day victory. The win was the 200th career triumph in South Jersey for Oberg, the only head coach in the 30-year history of Delsea football. Although it was Oberg's 200th career win in South Jersey, his overall record stands at a remarkable 209-60-5.

Both the Williamstown girls' volleyball team and junior Krissy Collins have done well recently on her birthday. Two years ago, the Braves won the state Group 3 title on Nov. 11. Yesterday, fourth- seeded Williamstown advanced to the state Group 4 semifinals by beating fifth-seeded Rancocas Valley in three games. To top it off, Collins scored the final two points in the third game, which Williamstown won, 25-18. "It's always been pretty lucky, 11/11," said Collins, who turned 17 yesterday.

David Sanchez might as well have been marching. Four rows of teammates trailed the burly Williamstown defensive lineman, who walked alone, holding a Williamstown football flag as a color guard would. When cheerleaders stand at the 20-yard line before a game, stretching out a giant paper banner, most football teams burst through it, making a grand entrance. Sanchez didn't run through the banner - he marched through it, flag first, teammates behind him. It was militaristic.

Form has held through the early rounds of the Group 4 girls' volleyball tournament. But now Williamstown needs to upset the order. The fourth-seeded Braves play top-seeded Southern Regional today at 7 p.m. in the second game of a state-semifinals doubleheader at Hillsborough. Second-seeded Hunterdon Central plays third-seeded Bridgewater-Raritan in the opener at 5:30 p.m. With the top four seeds advancing, there have been few surprises in the Group 4 tournament. But Williamstown needs to spring one. "We know they are the favorite, but it's great to still be competing at this point of the season," Williamstown coach Chris Sheppard said.

That Williamstown vs. Glassboro football game won't happen next season after all. Williamstown will instead play at Paramus Catholic, a Non-Public 4 program in Bergen County, Braves athletic director Paul Deal confirmed earlier this week. The game is scheduled for Oct. 10 at 2 p.m. "We'll probably do an overnight trip," Deal said. "It should be a good game. " In place of a matchup with Group 4 Williamstown, Glassboro will play Group 3 Kingsway. That game will be Friday, Nov. 6, according to Kingsway athletic director Joe Galleria.

Walking into halftime with his team up by 26 points, Anthony Racobaldo had done a lot on the football field. He had blocked a punt, leading to his own 23-yard touchdown run seven plays later. He had recovered a fumble on a kickoff, and he nearly picked off a pass midway through the second quarter. The senior was a fitting symbol of the dominance of the third-seeded Williamstown football team in its 42-0 win over visiting Atlantic City (5-4), the sixth seed, Friday night in the opening round of the South Jersey Group 5 tournament.

Kingsway outlasted Williamstown for the Tri-County Conference Royal Division title last year in girls' soccer, and the Braves refused to allow it to happen again. In a physical and emotional game between fierce rivals, Williamstown came out on top Tuesday, edging the host Dragons, 2-1, to clinch the division title. Both of the Braves goals came in the first half from sophomore Ashley Engler. "It's a big win for us, really big," Engler said. The victory left Williamstown at 16-2-1 overall and 9-0 in the Tri-County Royal.

Kyle Jenkins provided the highlight. Williamstown had trouble providing the high lights. Jenkins, Deptford's flash of a quarterback, bolted 82 yards early in the first quarter of his team's 18-7 victory at Williamstown last night. That seemed like a lock for the most memorable event of the evening. It was a distant second. With 31 seconds left in the third quarter and Deptford (5-3, 4-2 Tri-County Royal) leading by 12-7, the stadium went dark. The scoreboard was on and the press-box lights were on, but for 15 minutes, the game was off. Apparently an accident in the town had caused high-voltage lights around Williamstown to go off, including those at a nearby department store and supermarket.

In the old days, Thanksgiving was the perfect time to play the perfect football game. November still is a good month to make it happen, and the first weekend in December is even better. But the second week of September? A full seven days before the end of summer? If things go according to plan, Williamstown will have 10 more chances to play as well as it performed Friday night. But the Braves can only hope to bottle some of their mid-September magic, to shake well and break open come the start of the South Jersey Group 5 playoffs.

Despite donning the tools of ignorance for seven innings on a warm afternoon, Ross Micka figured he had a pretty easy job Thursday. "Catch the ball and throw it back," Micka, Williamstown's senior catcher, said of his workload during a Tri-County Conference Royal Division showdown with rival Kingsway. Micka and the rest of the Braves could rest easy because Denny Bentley was on the mound. Bentley, a junior left-hander, pitched a one-hitter with seven strikeouts as Williamstown took a big step toward clinching the division title with a 7-1 victory on the Braves' home field.

Denny Bentley didn't know he was going to pitch for the Williamstown baseball team Friday afternoon at Clearview. He also didn't know he would be at bat in the top of the eighth inning.

Anthony Racobaldo is a three-sport athlete at Williamstown. But when it came to college, Racobaldo knew it was time to focus on one sport. He decided on wrestling - in California, of all places. "I had never been there," Racobaldo said of the Golden State. "But once I visited, I loved it. It's awesome. " Racobaldo signed a wrestling scholarship Wednesday with California Baptist, an NCAA Division II program in Riverside, Calif. Racobaldo said he visited the school in late March - when the weather still was winter-like in South Jersey - and was impressed.

John Bradham knows his son has a routine. Every day, Williamstown high jumper Devin Bradham gets out of school at noon because of a senior option program that allows him to take college classes.

Micka did more than talk a good game in the nonleague clash of South Jersey Group 4 baseball programs on a warm, windy afternoon at Williamstown's field. He also rapped a pair of RBI singles as Williamstown rallied for the victory over the Cougars.
