Girls aiming at D-11 berth

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Catasauqua second-year head coach Carrie Saul knows she has to be patient.

Her club's 4-4 record through their first eight games isn't alarming at this point.

"So far, so good," stated Saul. "Everything seems to be going according to plan. We did lose six senior starters and that was a big loss. But the girls appear to be adjusting to the new system in place. I have four returning players and some younger players in the lineup, so we are learning as we go along."

Pete's Top-10: Rovers still at 1

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 by PETER CAR in Sports

So what did we learn from week three? Whitehall can run with more than Saquon Barkley. Liberty can run the ball and Bethlehem Catholic can run with teams like Easton?

Becahi's 49-35 loss to Easton was probably the most surprising result from the weekend, as the Hawks continue to climb the poll. Nazareth fumbled and East Stroudsburg South clamped down the MVC title race.

What else can happen this week? Check out the poll below.

1. Easton (3-0)

Last week's rank: 1...

Nosal overcomes eye injury against Pirates

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

In his future life, Jared Nosal will enter into a world stringent with discipline and structure.

It should be no real surprise, however, as Nosal has both enjoyed and endured a life filled with both of those pillars as well as a life encompassed with hard work and determination on and off the playing fields and mats. His athletic trek initially began in first grade and will reach another level when he graduates from Catasauqua in June.

In the meantime, Nosal understands there...

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...
