The Eagles dominate offensively in a 4-1 win to snap Haddonfield's winning streak against them.
That sound you heard at 5:03 p.m. Tuesday was a tectonic rip in South Jersey, Group 2 field hockey. Sure, it was easy to mistake it just as a cheer from exultant West Deptford players as they waltzed off the pitch at Haddonfield with a 4-1 victory, but there was no question the power balance in the group had blown up in the course of little more than an hour. After better than a year of Haddonfield dominance dating back to the 2010 South Jersey, Group 2 title game, West Deptford had the dominant look, taking control with Sydney Ponto’s goal midway through the first half and never giving it up. “We wanted this so bad—not only for us, but for West Deptford itself,” Ponto said after the victory, one of only a few against Haddonfield in the …
The Bulldawgs got a late goal from Alex Johnston to escape with the win Monday.

The Eagles led late, but Haddonfield stormed back to win, 5-4.
West Deptford led Haddonfield, 4-1, in the seventh inning, but ended up on the wrong side of a 5-4 result.
All season the West Deptford High School baseball team has been looking for a win that could change the temperature of the squad and take it to a higher level. Game after game passed and the trademark win never came. Finally, Wednesday arrived, and the Eagles found themselves in position to grab a big victory. It would be too late to make any significant impact on the regular season, but could give the team some much-needed momentum heading into the Group 2 playoffs. Back at the scene where it won a South Jersey title last year, West Deptford took a 4-1 lead into the seventh inning against Haddonfield. But instead of the breakthrough win, the Eagles got more heartbreak, as they committed two errors in the frame to squander the lead and …

The Eagles won, 171-178, for their first victory over Haddonfield in at least six years.
Coaches John Cobb and Howard Kyser haven’t seen it. The five seniors who make up the team’s core have never experienced it. But Thursday, it happened: For the first time in Cobb’s and Kyser’s six-year tenure, the West Deptford golfers took down Haddonfield, 171-178, firing their second-lowest round of the season at home on the links at RiverWinds. “What more can you say when kids step up in the most important match of the year?” Cobb said after the cards were signed. “To say I’m proud of these kids would be an understatement.” Kevin Brockway, the low man on either side, led the Eagles with a 40, with John Meagher right behind him at 41. Ryan Henry (44) and Matt Santarelli and Ritchie Stolz (46 each) rounded out the scoring for West …

The two teams played for a cause Wednesday night.
West Deptford's Marissa Linquist crushed a three-run home run and the team jumped out to a 6-0 lead after three innings, as the Eagles beat Haddonfield, 10-2, in a pink-and-black-themed game that raised money and awareness for breast cancer research. Linquist and Sydney Ponto combined on the mound for the win, which puts the Eagles at 11-4 on the season.

The Bulldawgs rebounded in the second half to beat the Eagles Saturday, 6-5.
After a back-and-forth, grind-it-out effort from both sides on a cloudy, chilly afternoon, Haddonfield got the best of West Deptford, scoring the game-winning goal with less than four minutes left in regulation to escape with the 6-5 victory Saturday. Andrew Augugliaro fired home the winning goal from the top right side, capping a five-goal effort for Haddonfield in the second half, after the Bulldawgs were only able to score once against the Eagles in the first half. West Deptford, which got a hat trick from Zach Kaestner, had a 2-1 lead at halftime, but struggled to find scoring opportunities in the second half. Joey Diaco was an assist machine for the Eagles, setting up four of the five goals they scored.

Haddonfield's Carly Bonnet and West Deptford's Samantha Budd took on top competition at the national race at New York's Armory.
West Deptford's Samantha Budd and Haddonfield's Carly Bonnet came in as South Jersey champions, and left among the top 40 runners in the 800 meters after competing in the New Balance Indoor Nationals at the Armory in New York City. Bonnet, the Group 1 champion, and Budd, the Group 2 champ, were slotted in the same Emerging Elite heat at the prestigious meet, facing competition from as far away as Long Beach, CA. Bonnet, who led early, finished just ahead of Budd, notching a 2:21.76—nearly seven seconds better than her South Jersey-winning time—to place 26th. Budd, who took a spike to the leg at one point in the four laps around the Armory's tight banked track, finished in 2:23.40 to take 37th. Check out the video above for the full race.
