The Irish get a last-second goal to claim the win Monday.
Camden Catholic's Tara Vittese scored a last-second goal and the Irish escaped with a 14-13 victory after nearly giving up a four-goal lead on the road at Haddonfield Monday. It was Vittese's third goal, and blew up a comeback by the Bulldawgs, who scored five goals in the game's final five minutes, including Taylor Ng's game-tying shot with 38.8 seconds left in the game. Camden Catholic's Shannon McCormick and Haddonfield's Gretchen Kiep led all scorers on the afternoon, each scoring six goals. Ng added five for Haddonfield, which opened the game with a 2-0 lead, but played from behind for most of the first half and nearly all of the second.

An agreement with the Haddonfield school board to install artificial-turf fields was unanimously approved Tuesday by borough commissioners.
Another milestone in the saga of artificial turf fields in Haddonfield was marked Tuesday night. The borough Board of Commissioners unanimously passed a shared services agreement with the local Board of Education for the installation and maintenance of two fields, one of which is on municipal property. The agreement clears the way for the installation of turf on the high school football stadium field and an adjacent practice field, which is owned by the borough. Commissioner Ed Borden hailed the project as a “cause for great celebration.” A cadre of residents, who sat through nearly two hours of other agenda items, including the passage of the 2013 municipal budget, didn’t see it that way. “When the school board and borough approved this …

There is good news and not so good news for Haddonfield Memorial High School today as U.S. News & World Report releases its annual national rankings of more than 21,000 schools.

Gamble was an executive with the San Francisco 49ers and started his career with the Eagles.
Just 10 days ago, his mom said he wasn't ready to leave San Francisco, to come back to the East Coast, closer to his native Haddonfield. How quickly time flies. Now, less than two weeks after his San Francisco 49ers lost the Super Bowl, Tom Gamble, a 1981 Haddonfield Memorial High School graduate, is coming home. He was hired Wednesday as vice president of player personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles. Gamble spent the past eight years with the 49ers. He was their director of pro player personnel and had been recently courted as a general manager candidate for the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars. He had previously worked for the Indianapolis Colts and the Jets, but his roots are with the Eagles. His dad, Harry Gamble, was the team …

Tom Gamble, an executive with the San Francisco 49ers, is a Haddonfield native.
There's very little doubt who the locals will be pulling for when Super Bowl XLVII kicks off at 6:30 p.m. tonight. Of course, the Philadelphia Eagles are nowhere near the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans today. But there is an Eagles connection. Tom Gamble, the son of former Eagles President Harry Gamble, is the director of player development for the 49ers and a 1981 Haddonfield Memorial High School graduate. His parents, Harry and Joan, still live in the borough and plan to be parked on their living room couch watching the game. "Tom, of course, invited us out but I don't like all the hubbub," Harry said Saturday afternoon. "There's a lot of preliminary stuff that's not important to me, the game is. Unfortunately, we never made it …
