With the Lehigh Valley Legion season staring to heat up, Coplay finds itself looking to stay among the top teams in this year’s league championship race.

Salisbury has a commanding lead for top honors, flying out of the gate at 8-0. Coplay currently sits at 4-4, tied with North Parkland which is 5-5. North Parkland occupies the fourth spot in the standings as of June 19, while Coplay is in fifth.

Torres continues to pitch well

Andrew Torres wants to keep playing baseball and keep boxing as long as he can. It has proved to be a perfect combination.

Chances are, the Catasauqua sophomore won’t have to meet any crossroads for a long time.

Torres found his niche midway through the varsity season and he hasn’t lost a step. He hurled a complete game victory against Bangor, a seven-strikeout, three-RBI performance.

Gold team defeats Red

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

It wasn’t a typical night of high school football. Instead, it was a night of camaraderie and memories for all those who participated and watched.

The 48th annual McDonald’s Lehigh Valley All-Star Classic football game at Nazareth High School’s Andrew S. Leh Stadium wasn’t your average September game as it was dotted with errors from the players and referees alike who all struggled to get in sync.

Catty Connie Mack aiming for playoffs

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

With a few weeks left in their Lehigh Valle Connie Mack (LVCM) season, Catasauqua has reached a point of test of character in many ways.

The Roughies recently lost starting pitcher Jacob Drummer for approximately two weeks due to a sprained ankle. However, he could return to the lineup as early as next week.

Also, the Roughies also may have hit a point where fatigue has started to show. Their steady bats virtually were silenced in a 2-1 loss to Hellertown, and they squandered a lead in a 5-4 defeat to Stroudsburg.

The Lehigh Valley’s Carpenter Cup run ended Monday afternoon in Philadelphia at the hands of a Delaware North in the quarterfinal round.

Delaware North was in control from the beginning taking a three-run lead in the first inning and then never looked back en route to a 26-9 victory.

After taking care of SOL National/Bicentennial 10-7 in the opening round of the tournament, LV was no match for their Delaware counterparts at FDR Park.

Outdoors: Bear spotted in Upper Mac

Mark Rabenold, a friend of mine from Allentown, took his mother for a ride last Tuesday afternoon to visit his grandparents’ grave site at Jordan Lutheran Church’s cemetery in Upper Macungie Township. When he pulled up into the cemetery he couldn’t believe what his eyes saw.

No, it wasn’t a ghost like something you’d see in a horror movie. But a more realistic figure.
