Same teams, same time, different location. Paulsboro High will host Saturday's key Colonial Conference Patriot Division football game against Woodbury, which had been slated to be the home team, at 10:30 a.m. The site was switched because Woodbury's home stands have been deemed unsafe by the school's insurance company, according to Woodbury athletic director Grant Shivers. "We'd have to put all the fans on one side, and it's a big rivalry and a big crowd is expected," he said yesterday.

The Woodbury school system will continue its policy of starting each school day with a moment of silence, despite a decision last week by the state legislature to abandon its fight to defend a state law requiring that public schools set aside a daily moment of "quiet contemplation or introspection. " "Our situation has not changed," said Claudio Arrington, Woodbury's schools superintendent. "Unlike the state law, our (moment of silence) policy was never religious in its intent.

After nearly three years of playing football games on the road, Woodbury is finally going home. The Thundering Herd, whose stadium and field have been undergoing renovations, will host Haddonfield (3-3) today at 1:30 p.m. The stadium received a temporary certificate of occupancy yesterday, permitting the homecoming game to be played, Woodbury athletic director Grant Shivers said. "A lot of people put in a lot of hard work to get it done," Shivers said. Despite playing all road games, including two at Rowan University in Glassboro, Woodbury is 4-1. "All day long, the kids have been stopping in and asking if we were playing at home," Shivers said.

Maybe it was the first play. Or maybe it was the first five series. But on a day when Woodbury officially dedicated its refurbished stadium, it was the visitors who made themselves at home. Paulsboro scored touchdowns on its first five possessions, building a 32-0 lead at halftime en route to a 38-13 victory over Woodbury yesterday in a Colonial Conference Patriot Division game. "They came in here today wanting it more than we did," Woodbury coach Zach Valentine said.

Zack Valentine, a former NFL player who once played with the Eagles, has been named Woodbury's football coach, athletic director Grant Shivers announced last night. Valentine, 44, replaced Jim Boyd, who resigned last month after compiling an 84-38-1 record and winning three South Jersey Group 1 titles during his 12 years as the Thundering Herd's head coach. "It should be a smooth transition," Shivers said. "[Valentine] knows what the program is all about. " Valentine has been Woodbury's defensive coordinator the last five years, during which time the Herd allowed nine points per game.

One of South Jersey's richest rivalries took another twist Saturday. In the unfamiliar role of underdog, Paulsboro rose up with a sensational defensive performance and scored a 10-0 victory over recent nemesis Woodbury in the semifinals of the South Jersey Group 1 tournament. "In our heads, the whole mind-set was 'Can we beat Woodbury? Can we beat them?' " Paulsboro senior running back Aaron Tilden said. That uncertainty was something new for Paulsboro, one of the most accomplished programs in South Jersey.

Woodbury junior fullback Todd Jones, who had lost his starting job the previous week, bounced back in style yesterday to lead the visiting Thundering Herd to a 32-0 blanking of Colonial Conference football rival Haddon Township. Jones scored on touchdown runs of 5, 4, and 1 yards in helping the Herd extend South Jersey's longest unbeaten streak to 25 games. He finished with 48 yards and three touchdowns on just six carries. Woodbury (2-0 overall and 2-0 in the conference) has won 30 straight regular-season games in the Colonial Conference, dating to 1987.

For Woodbury High's future football opponents, here's a sobering thought: The Thundering Herd is undefeated despite getting less-than-glittering offensive production from highly recruited Jimmer Bundy, the 246-pound fullback/tractor. Bundy gained a modest 55 yards on 11 carries yesterday. He also contributed to Woodbury's four turnovers by losing two fumbles. But it didn't matter. Woodbury, No. 5 in The Inquirer's South Jersey ratings, scored a 7-6 Colonial Conference win over visiting Haddonfield before 1,500 spectators.

It started with a phone call two years ago from an English gentleman asking a simple question: Had the city administrator ever heard of a man named Henry Wood? Tom Bowe initially thought the call was a prank. How could he - the city administrator - not know who the founder of Woodbury was? But he listened to Melvin Magnall, a shipbuilder from Bury, England, describe his fascination for the persecuted Quaker who left Magnall's home town at the age of 80 to make a better life for himself in America more than 400 years ago. And Bowe decided to help make Magnall's dream a reality: a cross-cultural exchange between the two cities culminating in a 10-day Millennium Celebration to be hosted in Woodbury this summer.

When Eva M. Moss was in the Army in Alabama in the late 1950s, she was hurt by an episode of racism that she never forgot.

All Chais Hill needed was for his teammates to keep it close. Midway through the boys' shuttle hurdles Saturday at the Woodbury Relays, Highland was trailing Timber Creek. Highland's second-leg runner, Bennett Alexander, said the Chargers put their fastest guys in the first two spots. The Tartans hadn't done that, placing De'Vante Parker in the third position and Hill as the anchor. Hill was confident that if it was close when he took off, he would be able to catch up. "I just had to stay focused and keep my form," Hill said.

A gunman sent hospital visitors fleeing the emergency-room lobby at Inspira Medical Center in Woodbury on Thursday morning, but the only person harmed was the gunman himself. The 26-year-old man fatally shot himself in the head in the lobby about 11:40 a.m., authorities said. "We all hid behind the brick wall," recalled a woman, who was walking toward the emergency-room entrance just after the shooting. The wall separates the walk-in entrance from the ambulance driveway. She said she saw about five people frantically rushing out. The woman refused to give her name because she does business with the hospital and was not authorized to speak about the incident.

Haddonfield's Taylor Sehdev entered Tuesday afternoon's game at Woodbury having reached double figures in points in each of her last three games. She did so again, but it was Hayley Raymond who paced the Bulldogs as they stormed out to an early lead behind their two leading scorers before coasting to a 53-33 win in a Colonial Conference girls' basketball game. Haddonfield held a 19-4 advantage after one quarter because of the strong play of Raymond and Sehdev. Raymond, a senior forward, scored eight of her team-high 18 points and sophomore Sehdev netted seven of her 13 in the opening period.
