Mikal Demby scores 17 in the loss as the Chargers fall to 7-16.
MOUNT LAUREL — The Timber Creek boys' basketball team finished the regular season on Saturday afternoon with a visit to the 21-5 Lenape Indians. It seemed fitting for the Chargers (7-16) as nothing has really come easily for this team throughout this trying season. Nothing has gone according to plan for these boys. They have had winter storms erase games from the early part of the schedule. Their schedule made them face off against some of Camden County's more feared teams to start the season. They have had to over come growing pains, players playing out of position and injury. Their visit to Lenape Regional High School on Saturday ended in a 63-44 loss to the Indians. The Chargers fought, worked and tried to capitalize on a Lenape team …

Senior Brian Bodran scored 30 for Shawnee as the Renegades beat Timber Creek, 52-38.
The Timber Creek boys' hoops team found itself hosting a very dangerous team in Shawnee on Tuesday night. The Renegades had lost an uncharacteristic five games in a row coming into the Patriot Division showdown. With the Chargers having only won one of their last five game, both teams were in desperate need for a win. On this night, it was all Renegades, who left town with a comfortable win behind senior Joe Bodnar's 30 points. Shawnee dropped Timber Creek, 52-38, knocking the Chargers to 3-7 on the season. Bodnar was hot from the get-go, making his first three attempts from behind the arc. In total, the senior hit seven shots from long distance, five in the first half. "He started the game off on fire," Shawnee head coach Joe Kessler said…

Timber Creek's boys shot just 13 for 33 from the foul line as they let Pennsauken slip past them, 70-68.
PENNSAUKEN—Coach William Fahy broke down his Timber Creek boys' basketball team's loss to Olympic Conference foe Pennsauken Thursday night into the simplest of terms: "Any time a team goes 13 of 33 from the foul line, you are not going to win that game." Timber Creek fell to the Indians, 70-68, falling to 2-4 on the season. The loss spoiled another impressive offensive display by senior shooting guard Mikal Demby, who scored a team high 27 points in the loss. After the game, Demby was more focused on the Chargers' inability to put the Indians (5-4) away, particularly from the charity stripe. "They took advantage of our weakness tonight, which was on the free throw line," he said. "They are a feisty team, with a real feisty defense. Feels …

The blizzard may have cost the Timber Creek boys' hoops team two games in Wildwood, but a week in the gym might be just what the team needed.
After suffering two losses to open the season, the Timber Creek boys' basketball team had hoped they would be able to get back on track while spending the first part of their winter break competing in Wildwood. Sadly for the Chargers, they were not given the chance. Due to the winter's first major snowstorm, the Chargers saw their two-game slate in the Wildwood Basketball Classic get erased in the name of public safety. When reached for comment early Tuesday, head coach William Fahy explained how the Chargers were planning to spend the extra, if not unwelcome, time off. "We are excited to play another game. Usually with basketball, you don't need to wait more than a couple of days before playing your next opponent. Since we didn't play so …

The Chargers stay in it until the last second, but find Cherry Hill East's size too much to handle.
CHERRY HILL—If the season-opening game was a preview of what is yet to come for the Timber Creek Chargers, coach William Fahy and his team must be preparing for an exciting ride. Timber Creek lost 54-51 in an Olympic Conference match-up against the Cherry Hill High School East Cougars, after D.J. Dunham's last second three-point attempt was smothered at the buzzer. The miss capped a fourth quarter surge from the Chargers, who never held a lead, but never were out of contention. "Our kids played very well," said the Timber Creek coach after the game. "They showed a lot of heart at the end." The Chargers, who trailed by as much as 11 points in the second half, had reason to be proud of their efforts against the larger and more physical …

Timber Creek senior forward DJ Dunham gives more to his team than the stat sheets show.
If you ask DJ Dunham to describe his role during his first season at Timber Creek Regional High School last year, he would tell you he was the team's "trash man," and that he filled the role out very nicely. There is a certain level of pride that comes through in his words as he explains that he was able to excel in the role his coach had issued him. When coach William Fahy describes Dunham's play during their first year together, he uses terms like "leader" and "coach's dream." Dunham is a senior for the Timber Creek boys' basketball team. Like his coach, it is only his second year at the school, having transferred from Winslow Township High School after his sophomore year. They have forged a bond that they both are hesitant to admit. …
