S.E. PA WEEK 14 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE
Cherokee quarterback Andrew Martin wasn't pleased with his performance or that of his team Thanksgiving day against visiting Seneca.
Cherokee had to overcome a 13-10 halftime deficit to win, 19-17, and maintain an undefeated record going into the South Jersey Group 4 championship game on Dec. 3 with Oakcrest.
Martin, a senior, said the Chiefs played a sloppy game. And he was well aware that he contributed to it.
Senior Terrell Williams ran 22 times for 93 yards as Cherry Hill West beat cross-town rival Cherry Hill East, 13-12, on Thanksgiving Day morning.
It was the fourth consecutive victory in the 42-year-old series for Cherry Hill West.
The Lions finished 2-8 with victories in their last two games.
The Gloucester County Institute of Technology (GCIT) softball team has been named to the 2009-10 Girls Got Game National Fastpitch Coaches Assoc. all-academic team. GCIT's unweighted GPA was 3.53, 34th in the nation.

THANKSGIVING DAY FOOTBALL
Here is next weekend's S.E. PA football playoff slate:
Eastern field hockey coach Danyle Heilig went right to the point after Oak Knoll upset the Vikings, 4-2, Sunday in the Tournament of Champions' final.
"They took advantage of opportunities and we didn't," Heilig said of Oak Knoll, which had been outshot, 22-6, and outcornered, 28-2. "They had six shots on goal and converted on four. We dominated the game but couldn't finish the ball."
The stats clearly were on Eastern's side.
Aaron Tilden ran 22 times for 81 yards and a touchdown and Paulsboro played shut-down defense as the Red Raiders upset defending champion Woodbury 10-0 in the South Jersey Group 1 semifinals on Saturday.
Linebacker Eric McMullen led Paulsboro's defense.
Paulsboro (9-1) advances to face Glassboro in the South Jersey Group 1 finals on the weekend of Dec. 3-4.
When I asked Haddonfield quarterback Kevin Davis how the Bulldogs turned a 3-point halftime deficit into a 38-27 win over Willingboro Friday night, he threw boquets to the offensive line.
"I think people underestimate us," Davis said. "We are a very powerful football team. I'd like to give the success to my offensive line. Without them I'm nothing. Our backs are nothing.Our wide receivers are nothing."
So here goes: Senior Drew Lynch is at center, senior Jacob Reisman at right guard, junior Carson Stack at left guard, senior Matthew Porter at right tackle and junior Jimmy Cashman at left tackle. Senior Alex Walter is at tight end.
