Heads up, commuters: a highway reconstruction project will shut down stretches of Kings Highway at the border of Haddonfield and Cherry Hill through December 14.
The final phase of a Kings Highway reconstruction project in Cherry Hill could cause periodic lane and road closures through the end of this week, Camden County officials announced Tuesday. Spanning a section of the road from the Haddonfield border at Park Boulevard to Oregon Avenue (near the former Ellisburg Circle), the $927,592 project is moving into milling and paving over the next few days, which will likely shut down the entire stretch at various points through Friday, county officials said. “Although every attempt is being made to keep at least one lane open during the construction, motorists should be aware of detour and choose alternate routes to avoid delays,” said freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the county Department of …

Collingswood got its first victory of the season with a late touchdown against Overbrook.
Collingswood 6, Overbrook 0 After letting an opportunity slip away last weekend against Haddon Township, Collingswood took it down to the wire against Overbrook to notch its first victory of the season. The Panthers got a fourth quarter touchdown on a pass from Jordan Wallace to Steve Copeland, and that was all they needed in the 6-0 win. Paulsboro 42, Haddon Township 13 The Red Raiders poured on the offense at home, opening up a 21-6 halftime lead en route to the blowout win over Haddon Township. Zack Funk threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third, De'Shaun Burgess scored twice and Riseeq Sease added a little excitement with an 81-yard kick return for a score. Haddon Township found a little drama of its own on a 90-yard TD pass from …

The Panthers, Lions, and Gators fell to 0-2 on the young season, while Haddon Heights, Sterling, and West Deptford remain unbeaten.
Haddonfield 36, Lindenwold 0 Haddonfield bounced back from a season-opening loss to Paulsboro in convincing fashion, smothering Lindenwold 36-0 Friday night. The Bulldawgs scored a first-half safety and chewed up the clock with a running game that accounted for four of their touchdowns, including a pair of TDs from Adam Augugliaro, who scored from the 1-yard line and on a 55-yarder. Haddon Township 14, Collingswood 7 Down by just a point after a Collingswood touchdown in the second half, Haddon Township rallied to score the game-winner on a 69-yard drive Saturday—aided in part by a couple of costly Panthers penalties. Dan Clemente rumbled in from 11 yards to score the decisive TD after Collingswood let the Hawks off the hook with two third…

Collingswood suffered the second-worst beating of the week, and Haddonfield was shut out at home to open the season. West Deptford-Lindenwold was postponed by rain.
Woodbury 42, Collingswood 7 It was the Anthony Averett and Cameron Gamble show at Woodbury Saturday morning, as the two scored three touchdowns alone and combined on a fourth in a 42-7 shellacking of Collingswood in the two teams’ Colonial Conference opener. The Thundering Herd built a lead in a hurry, getting a 50-yard rushing touchdown from Alabama-bound Averett and a 20-yard return on a blocked punt by Gamble. After a Dwuan Martin three-yard TD, the Herd led 22-0 after just the first quarter. They’d stretch that to 36-7 at halftime on an Averett-to-Gamble touchdown pass, and Averett’s 55-yard punt return in the third quarter iced the game. Martin finished with two touchdowns to complete the offense, and Woodbury’s Jamir Baston notched …

The popular Haddonfield destination is big on health—and prices—but short on flavor, says our food writer.
When I was a kid, my family and I vacationed in Seattle. It’s a beautiful city, if you’ve never been; catch it during a stretch of sunshine and you’re in for a treat. While at breakfast one morning, I noticed one of the available sides was “Philadelphia scrapple.” Like most people raised in the Delaware Valley, I’m a scrapple fanatic. I excitedly placed an order, and for my efforts received a mushy brown block that had more in common with a granola bar than a piece of scrapple. Everything about it was wrong. The color was off, the spices weren’t right, and for some reason, there were chunks of carrot in it. The point is, somewhere along the way on its 3,000-mile journey northwest, the concept of scrapple changed. Something was lost in …
