Lehigh Valley's Carpenter Cup softball team, which includes Catasauqua player, Janae Matos, defeated Philadelphia Catholic's Carpenter Cup team, 10-5, in its first game of the double-elimination tournament on Monday at FDR Park in Philadelphia.

Matos played in the last four innings, catching for Emmaus pitcher, Olivia Marcks.

"It worked well. She has a lot of momentum on her ball and hit her spots. I tried to frame as many pitches as possible to get the questionable calls," Matos said.

Catasauqua head Lehigh Valley Connie Mack (LVCM) head coach Jim Kober will await to see his team's seed in the postseason tournament.

Catty ended its season Wednesday night against Moore Township and had an 11-5 overall record.

Even though his team likely will have one of the top five seeds in the league playoffs, Kober believed his team could have had even a better season.

Fullerton waiting to see its full potential

Thursday, June 20, 2013 by STEVE ANDRES Special to the Press in Sports

Just like his Coplay counterpart, Fullerton Legion manager Daniel Delp has yet to reap the consistent benefits of a full complement of players.

"We've had only one game this year when we had our entire roster on hand," said Delp.

That means they've had to adjust, sometimes putting players in unfamiliar spots which has been a challenge this season. Still, Delp said he's been fortunate since a few of his players, including Ryan Bonshak, Matt Bonshak, Zach Delp, Tyler Correll and Jeff Charles are comfortable at multiple positions on the diamond.

Catty hopes to make a run

Thursday, June 20, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

When he looks at the big picture, Catasauqua's Jim Kober likes his team's chances in the Lehigh Valley Connie Mack season this summer.

At the start of this week, Catty had an overall 8-3 mark and found itself within striking distance of first-place Lehigh-West Bethlehem and second-place Parkland. It has been a season in which the Roughies have rebounded well after a few glitches along the way.
