Thursday, October 10, 2019 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

The Catty boys soccer team played a spirited second half against Palmerton last Thursday, drilling into the visitor’s lead to make it a one-goal game, but the Roughs comeback bid ultimately fell short, jeopardizing their chance for a district playoff berth.

Catasauqua was on the second night of back-to-back games, having lost a heartbreaker to Tamaqua the prior evening when the Raiders scored two goals in the final minutes to win, the game-winner coming with under a minute remaining.

When Haleigh Toto’s free kick slid under the crossbar to cut Tamaqua’s lead to a goal at Thomas Field last Saturday morning, it seemed like the spark the Roughs needed to pull out the come-from-behind victory.

They had been consistently knocking on the door late in the second half, and Toto’s goal, her second of the game, pulled them within one as the Raiders now clung to a 3-2 lead.

Coplay ended the regular season 5-9-1, finishing in the fifth spot in the standings. They head into the playoffs off a resounding 15-5 victory over Emmaus last Sunday.

Building blocks are a familiar sports metaphor, illustrating the need for strong foundational pieces in order to achieve athletic success.

Whether it’s constantly working on staying low out of the blocks as a sprinter, taking jumper after jumper in an empty gym, or increasing one’s strength in a musty weight room, that attention to the fundamentals is what’s needed to build future success.

The 7-3 victory opened the gate to their second round game versus Lower Macungie where they were now facing double elimination. That was advantageous since they lost to Lower Macungie 10-4.
