Second chance for a buck

Thursday, December 20, 2012 by NICK HROMIAK Special to the Press in Sports

If you're like me and still have an unfilled buck tag, we'll get another shot at one during the late deer season that runs from Dec. 26 to Jan. 12. Of course you must use a bow or muzzleloader rifle in all parts of the state.

For those with unfilled antlerless tags, those may be used in the specific WMUs they were purchased for or, an antlerless deer may be taken anywhere with the general hunting license but that ends the deer hunting season for those who do.

Catty fell to Nazareth 57-36 to open the season at the Catty High School Gym in a non-league contest.

"We did not have much on Nazareth because they had not played any games yet," said head coach Eric Snyder. "One of our scouts did see them scrimmage against Pius X and Pen Argyl."

Catty knew of Grant Searfoss, 16 points, and Austin Cordero, 11 points, and that they were good players.

"When they went to zone they outscored us 19-2. We went from four up to 13 down," Snyder said.

The team also falls to a very good Palmerton squad in game 2

Chad Werkheiser's Lady Rough Riders had the unenviable task of opening the 2012-2013 basketball season at Mahanoy Area, a perennial playoff, team last Friday night. The girls fell 54-39.

Coach Werkheiser said, "It was a good overall game for us to start."

Katie Bucynski from Catasauqua High led all scorers with 19 points. Alexa Leshko of Mahanoy Area answered back with 17 in the non-league contest.

"I just kept taking jump shots and took a three," said Buczynski. "I received passes from Liv (Falko) Janae (Matos) and Shiloh (Sziy)."

Edwards hopes boys can get back to districts

Thursday, December 13, 2012 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

With nearly four years in the Catasauqua athletic programs, Zac Edwards is confident he can spot success in the making and he isn't afraid to take charge.

Edwards himself has been successful on the baseball field where he was a team captain and his play has earned him a scholarship to Lebanon Valley College next fall. He also was a captain on the school's cross country team this fall.

With two games under his belt on the basketball court, Edwards is also confident his hardwood mates can return to district play late this winter.
