Thursday, May 2, 2013 by PETER CAR in Sports

Where there's smoke, there's fire and the news of a Lehigh Valley superconference finally came to fruition last week.

After months of rumors and speculation about the future of the Lehigh Valley Conference, the Mountain Valley Conference stepped in and sent out an invitation to 12 neighboring schools to ultimately form a "big school, super conference," according to Stroudsburg Principal and MVC President Jeff Sodl.

They say if you build it, they will come.

In the case of this week's Goal In One Coaches Clinic and Expo, it's more like if you host it, they will come.

Dean Koski, the founder and president of G.I.O., as well as head coach of Lehigh's men's soccer program, spent eight months preparing for February 28th's opening night of the expo at Bethlehem Sands Event Center.

The event will run throughout the weekend with clinics, speakers and exhibitions running all day Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

Most people in the Lehigh Valley thought Catasauqua would be preparing for two football games this week.

Their annual Thanksgiving day contest with Northampton is always a given, but after an undefeated run up till November 17, the Rough Riders were expected to be preparing for the PIAA playoffs this weekend.

That's not the case anymore after they suffered the biggest upset of the year at the hands of Pen Argyl (10-2) last Saturday night, losing 26-20 to the Green Knights in the District 11 2A final.

Pete's Top-10 An undefeated week of picks

Thursday, October 11, 2012 by PETER CAR in Sports

After an unblemished week of picks, I've come to realize that it's not that hard picking games around here this year.

The reality is that there aren't any super teams in the Valley like we've had in the past in either conference, with Catasauqua being the lone exception of a team that appears to be superior to everyone in their league.

Easton could have two losses on its resume at this point, Parkland looks to be heating up and Central Catholic is making a push in the poll.

Who will take another step toward the playoffs this week? Check out the picks below.
