High School Field Hockey:
West Wins the Battle at Cherry Hill

Saturday, October 15, 2005

By Susan Hall
SJSports Special Correspondent

The month of October has a few indications that things are about to change in our area. The color of the leaves began to switch into fall mode, the temperatures drop a few degrees and the cutoff for making the post season can change a team’s hopes of making their run towards the states. Two teams that not only share the same town name, but also share that winning attitude as the first time they met last month neither team could decide a winner. Cherry Hill West was hosting Cherry Hill West in an Olympic Conference cross city rivalry. With the game tie at one at the start of the second half, Krista Taylor would score off of a corner that eventually gave the Lions the 2-1 victory over Cherry Hill West.

Haddon Heights Survive Gateway's Late Rally

Monday, October 10, 2005

Sometimes you just got to do what you got to do. It seem as if the rain just would not end this weekend leaving the decision to reschedule the game between Gateway and Haddon Heights to another available day. Well that day happened to be a holiday for most and the Garnets would host Gateway in a Colonial Conference Patriot divisional game. Haddon Heights did what they had to do during the second half of this game on defense as they watched their lead diminish during the final quarter. Gateway had lined up their offense looking to tie the game on a two point conversion, but the Garnets would watch that pass fall incomplete. Haddon Heights would hold on to their slim lead the rest of the way and defeat the Gators 14-12.

Senior midfielder Baris Uslu collected two goals and one assist during a 3-0 week for the Rutgers-Camden men’s soccer team, including the game-tying and game-winning goals in a 4-1 comeback win over Cabrini College Oct. 8. He also added an assist during a 3-0 victory over Delaware Valley College Oct. 3. For the season, the Scarlet Raptors’ tri-captain owns five goals and four assists, and is second on the team with 14 points. The Rutgers-Camden men’s soccer team took time out from the New Jersey Athletic Conference wars over the past week and built a three-game winning streak against a trio of non-conference foes. Rutgers-Camden posted wins at Delaware Valley College (3-0, Oct. 3) and Wesley College (2-1 in double-overtime, Oct. 5), before returning to Camden during a soggy Homecoming Day to defeat Cabrini College, 4-1.
