Holy Cross High School
The football game between Moorestown and Holy Cross, which was originally supposed to be played the day after Thanksgiving, has been moved to Friday.
Holy Cross will host the 7 pm. game.
The move came after Moorestown was eliminated last week by Timber Creek in the South Jersey Group 3 playoffs.
Field hockey aficionados from South Jersey are in for a treat on Sunday, Nov. 15, when four area teams play for state championships at Toms River East.
Eastern, Ocean City, Bishop Eustace and Holy Cross advanced to the big dance.
Eastern is scheduled to play Bridgewater-Raritan in Group 4, Ocean City will take on Warren Hills in Group 3, Bishop Eustace will mix it up with Madison in Group 2 and Holy Cross will play Shore Regional in Group 1.
Gloucester Caholikc's Karen Thomas hit the winning penalty kick in the shootout segement to give the Rams the South Jersey Non-Public B girls' soccer championship over Holy Cross
The two teams played a scoreless tie through 100 minutes and had to settle the matter on penalty kicks.
Gloucester Catholic made all five of its penalty kicks, while Holy Cross made four.
Gloucester's sudden exit from the Central Jersey Group 1 semifinal Friday is still hard to believe.
The No. 1 seeded Lions (18-1-1) had been undefeated in the regular season and had won a quarterfinal game against Haddon Heights when a goal by Marissa DePativo gave Holy Cross a 1-0 victory.
The goal was the only shot by Holy Cross in the second half.
With 55 percent of the vote, Abington quarterback Sam Kind was selected as the Southeastern Pennsylvania football player of the week. Kind threw three touchdown passes and directed the Ghosts to a 27-13 upset win over Pennsbury on Oct. 30. For his performance, Kind will receive a Rally T-shirt.
With 29 percent of the vote, Holy Cross quarterback Austin Stein was selected as the South Jersey football player of the week. Stein completed 8 of 11 passes for 294 yards and five touchdowns in a 42-0 win over Delran last week. For his performance, Stein will receive a Rally T-shirt.
At Rancocas Valley Tuesday, Holy Cross coach Hillary Richards told me that she played left forward at the parochial school for Julie Thornton in 2003.
Thornton, who is an RV co-coach with Jean Marie Seal, said she didn't forget how good a player Richards was. So before she left the Holy Cross program two years ago she called her former star and told her about the coaching opening.
Richards guided the Lancers to a 2-0 BCL interdivisional win.
Brian Whitman scored with 3 minutes, 12 seconds left in the second half, wrapping up Haddon Heights’ 2-1 Colonial Conference interdivision thriller over visiting Haddon Township (9-2).
Heights (8-1-1) led by 1-0 at halftime on Austin McCleary’s goal, and Township knotted the score after halftime with a goal by Nick DellaValle. Whitman’s game-winner was a 12-yard shot after an assist by John Hagerty.
Goals in the first half by Paden Dietrich, Daulton Law and Chris Steiner were enough for Overbrook to hang on for a 3-2 win at Lindenwold. The Lions’ Orlando Askie scored his ninth and 10th goals of the season.
Brian Reynolds’ goal with just 1:10 left was all the offense Shawnee needed to subdue visiting Cherry Hill East, 1-0. Renegades goalie Mike Hartman made nine saves.
Final – Camden Catholic 28, Holy Cross 6
