Pete’s Top-10: Hawks look to steal Parkland’s reign

Thursday, October 5, 2017 by PETER CAR in Sports

The showdown has finally arrived for Parkland and Bethlehem Catholic with this week’s tussle taking place in Orefield Friday night. The winner will grab the EPC South by the horns, but this is most likely a contest between the two best teams in the area we’ll see this season, no matter what happens in the postseason, which makes it all the better.

Roughs begin second half

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Catasauqua begins the second half of the season with both optimism and skepticism.

The Roughies closed out their first five games of the season with an overall 2-3 record. They dropped their opening game to Salisbury, then won consecutive games against Northern Lehigh and Pen Argyl before suffering lopsided defeats to Saucon Valley and Palisades.

Up next Saturday afternoon is an unpredictable Wilson squad, which will host the Roughies with an overall 3-2 mark.

Catty looks to improve now and for future

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

For the Catasauqua girls’ volleyball team, it is all about the future.

However, their present state is looking pretty good.

Having a young, maturing squad, the Roughies have been steadily improving throughout the season, and they have been looking at the big picture. Catty has a 2-7 record through their first five games, but they aren’t looking at the final results.

“Our record is 2-7, and this season we are improving incredibly,” said head coach Danielle Heller. “My...

Boys fall to Palisades

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 by JAMES BUNTING in Sports

The Catasauqua boys soccer team struggled during a tough stretch on the schedule, but head coach Joshua Inman is encouraged for the future with one of the Colonial League’s best young goal scorers.

Freshman Damian DiPaolo leads the Rough Riders with eight goals on the season, and leads the team in shots on goal. DiPaolo got his high school career started with two goals in the season opener against Northern Lehigh and has become a vital part of Catasauqua’s attack. Junior Devon Troxell...
