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.

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.

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.

On the first pass of his high school career, Levi Simpkins looked like the running back that he is. His head on a swivel, the Woodstown junior took a couple of hard steps to his right, chucked the football in the air, and braced himself for a big hit. The hit came - and so did a 15-yard, roughing-the-passer call. The surprise was that the penalty was tacked on to a 36-yard completion to Tariq Thomas. Woodstown hadn't even practiced a halfback pass since before a Week 3 game against Glassboro.
