Roughies pull away from Southern Lehigh

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Ra'Von Burton referred to it as a back-and-forth, backyard football game in which one team finally takes charge.

Head coach Tom Falzone doesn't want to leave the field from a game at 10:15 again anytime soon.

However, both player and coach were happy to walk away from the field after a three-plus hour, 62-35 shootout victory over Southern Lehigh last Friday night that left the Roughies with an undefeated 2-0 overall record as well as an unblemished Colonial League mark with...

CHS rolls over Wilson

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

After he watched his team's game film against Wilson, head coach Tom Falzone has to think twice about something.

He realized his team ran just under 35 offensive plays in the Roughies' 40-7 opening -game victory over Wilson last Saturday afternoon. Falzone admittedly did a double-take, but he soon knew this team had the same potential of last year's squad that produced 10 mercy-rule victories from their 12-win total.

Catty's first victory may have been more impressive as they...

Cunningham takes over Roughies

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Abby Cunningham got a call from her former coach Sue Ardnt about taking over the Catasauqua girls' volleyball program and thought it would be a good fit.

Lindsay Ardnt, Sue's daughter, recently resigned from the program and moved out of the area. As a result, it was a flurry of activity that lead to Cunningham taking over the program.

"When I took over, I really didn't have a lot of time to get everything organized," said Cunningham, who played for the Roughies from 2005...

There were no doubts for Marshall

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Paryss Marshall didn't have any doubts about his team's opening-game performance despite the Roughies lost a core of seniors from a team that posted 12 wins and suffered their lone defeat in the District 11 Class 2A championship game last year.

When his team posted 40 points in the opening quarter against Wilson, Marshall wasn't surprised. Instead, he did more than his share with a pair of touchdown passes and a 48-yard interception return for a touchdown that easily could have been...

Pete's Top-10

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 by PETER CAR in Sports

Oh hello, it's September already? Well not quite, but by the time this weekend rolls around school will be in full session for everyone, fantasy drafts will be close to completed and it's still going to be raining every week.

Anyways, it's clear who the top teams in each conference are this year, but who will creep up to challenge teams like Easton, Parkland and Catasauqua in their respective conferences should be clearer after week one.

So without further a do, here's the...

Falzone, Roughs are ready for season

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Catasauqua head football coach Tom Falzone knows his team is ready.

The Roughies tuned up for the season opener Saturday afternoon at Wilson with an impressive scrimmage against both Marian and Kutztown last week. Falzone stated his team dominated in every phase of the game against both clubs. However, it was a performance he didn't totally expect.

"We played very well," said Falzone. "But we really didn't practice well in the days before the scrimmage. We looked good in all...
