Things are starting a little late at some Cape-Atlantic League schools this fall. At Ocean City, for example, the first game isn’t played until 10 days after Labor Day. You usually find action starting within a few days of Labor Day.

But the 2013-14 school year will be later in a number of situations. For example, the first basketball game will be five days before Christmas (get your shopping done early) and the NJSIAA Basketball Tournament won’t begin until March 3.

gami1 Bill LeConey/Running back David Hood, left, and quarterback Mike Dolan are two of the key returning players for Absegami High School. GALLOWAY – To say the Absegami High School Braves have less than fond memories of the 2012 football season is a vast understatement. You won’t catch many images from last year on the Braves’ cell phones or IPads.

Absegami finished 5-4 last season, dropping a heartbreaker to Atlantic City in a South Jersey Group V quarterfinal in which they surrendered a 17-point fourth-quarter lead.

“That taste from last year stuck in my mouth, and it just gives me more motivation to go harder this year,” running back David Hood said.

MTHS senior could challenge school scoring record

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Brian Cunniff Wednesday, August 28, 2013 04:47 pm

When Tara Davies finished her high school soccer career at Middle Township High School in the fall of 2005 with 104 goals before going on to enjoy a productive career at national Division I power Penn State, there was thought that it might be a long time before another player comes along to challenge that record.

Yet less than a decade later, here we are.

Danielle McCann, about to begin her senior season at Middle, brings 77 career goals into the new season, which for her team is set to begin on Sept. 10 at Vineland.

McCann, Cape May County’s active leading career goal scorer, is a major reason why the Lady Panthers have been one of the top programs in the Cape-Atlantic League in recent seasons. She’s netted 30, 25 and 22 goals, respectively, in each of the last three seasons, helping Middle go a combined 48-12-4 with two CAL National Conference titles, one South Jersey championship and a berth in another sectional title game. Her 30 goals last fall tied the program single-season record, first set by Davies as a junior in 2004.
