Kingsway matched its win total of a season ago last night by scoring a 14-0 win over Woodstown in a Tri-County Royal Division football game. The Dragons were 2-7 last year, but the backfield combination of 6-foot, 177-pound senior Jerrell Bishop and 6-1, 181-pound junior Ben Liles sparked them to a win last night and a 2-0 record, 2-0 in the Royal Division. Visiting Woodstown fell to 1-1, 0-1. Bishop, who gained 253 yards last week against Pennsville, rushed for 127 yards on 22 carries and scored the game's two touchdowns last night.

The conference high school football races are far from decided, the playoff spots still weeks away from being secured, but last night, Woodstown and host Delsea met in a game that both teams needed to win. Delsea defeated Woodstown, 20-7, in what amounted to a Tri-County Royal Division game of survival. Delsea, which last week lost a last-minute, 8-6 decision to undefeated conference leader Salem, improved to 4-1 overall and 3-1 in the division. Woodstown fell to 3-2 overall and 3-2 in the Royal Division.

Sean Lenahan didn't end up at the bottom of every pile last night, but but it sure must have seemed that way to the rain-soaked football fans at Memorial Stadium. The senior tailback carried the ball 44 times for 227 yards and two touchdowns, and Woodstown scored the last 17 points of the game to shock Kingsway, 24-21 in overtime. The Wolverines took a huge step toward earning their first playoff berth since 1989, improving to 5-1 overall, 3-1 in the Tri-County Conference Royal Division, and 2-1 in overtime.

Woodstown overcame a slim halftime deficit Thursday night by producing a strong second half and dropping Schalick, 36-10, in a West Jersey Football League Diamond Division matchup.

It's one thing to make five three-pointers. It's something else to make five three-pointers with a hand your face. And it's something else entirely to make the last of those five three-pointers with 1 minute, 26 seconds on the clock and your team trailing by 55-52 and the near-capacity crowd in full roar in a visiting gymnasium. "That's a tough shot in a tough part of the game," Woodstown coach Jeff Podolski said of senior guard Dee Hall's final three-point jumper of a Tri-County Conference Diamond Division showdown Thursday night in Glassboro.

An unusually well-pitched baseball game was decided in an unusual way yesterday afternoon when Woodstown hosted Pennsville in a battle for first place in the Tri-County Conference Royal Division. Pennsville (16-4 overall, 11-3 division) entered the game in a virtual first-place tie and ranked No. 3 in South Jersey by The Inquirer. But when it was over, Woodstown (15-4, 13-3) was sitting atop the standings by virtue of a 1-0 victory. The winning run was scored when Pennsville uncharacteristically made three errors in the third inning - two on the same play.

Midway through the second quarter of last night's Woodstown at Clayton football game, a spectator shouted a statement for all around to hear. "Hey, I thought the Clippers were back!" said the fan, who came out to cheer on the visitors and who was obviously pleased with his team's 20-point lead. The Clayton Clippers, coming off a 4-5 season that followed a winless 1985 year, were hoping to use last night's game to send a message out - that they are no longer easy prey. But Woodstown played as if it was determined to make Clayton prove that on some other night, against some other team.

Lee Ware's teams at Woodstown have hit a few three-run home runs and generated some big innings. It has been 40 years, after all. But a typical Woodstown victory under the dean of South Jersey baseball coaches - as well as the area's soon-to-be all-time leader in baseball victories - involves more subtle aspects of the sport. Take Wednesday's 2-1 victory over Glassboro. In the 925th game of Ware's career, Woodstown scored both runs on suicide-squeeze bunts, including the game-winner in the bottom of the 10th inning.

Just one more obstacle remains for Salem High's football team, and quarterback Troy Dublin said his Rams will attack it with a passion. Salem (10-0), fifth in The Inquirer's South Jersey Top 10 rankings, won its second straight Tri-County Conference Royal Division championship by thrashing visiting Woodstown, 22-7, yesterday before 5,000 spectators. All that remains for the Rams (10-0, 6-0) is a date at Buena for the South Jersey Group 2 championship Dec. 3. "Our goal all season long has been to go 11-0," said Dublin, who ran for a touchdown and a two-point conversion.

Hamisi Tarrant isn't sure how high his Cherry Hill West team can rise. Unfortunately, he knows how low things can go for the Lions. Thanks to a "perfect storm" of factors, Cherry Hill West dropped a 54-point decision to Olympic Conference Patriot Division rival Timber Creek on Jan. 5. That 93-39 setback was rock bottom for a team that spent much of the 2014-15 season in The Inquirer's Top 25. But the big news is the Lions have rebounded and...

When a football team loses 10 games in a row, the pertinent issues no longer have much to do with blocking and tackling, scheme and strategy. "The whole thing becomes about trying to keep the kids up," Moorestown coach Beau Sherry said. Moorestown won its opener in 2014 and then lost its final nine games. Then the Quakers squandered a two-touchdown lead and lost in overtime to Winslow Township in this season's opener on Sept. 11. Then the Quakers saw Burlington Township take a 20-17 lead with a touchdown with just 1 minute, 39 seconds remaining in Friday's game between the Burlington County rivals.

Woodstown defensive back Dillon Hill admits that his final football game will be an emotional one, simply because he never wanted to see his career end. Hill will participate Wednesday in the Adam Taliaferro Foundation All-Star Football Classic at Rowan University. The game, which features many of the top graduating seniors in South Jersey, will kick off at 7 p.m. Listed on the roster at 5-foot-5 and 145 pounds, Hill was hoping to play college football but was told by many that he was too small.
