Young Roughies still battle

Thursday, September 13, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in Sports

Catasauqua boys soccer coach Mike Baclawski put it best when he said "We don't have anyone on the roster who can drive themself to a game."

That shows the youth and inexperience this Roughies team is dealt with this 2012 season.

Still, this team keeps battling and doesn't give up. That showed with a resilient late goal in a 9-1 loss to Salisbury last Thursday night in a Colonial League match at Salisbury High School.

It also didn't help that ten minutes into the game, two starters went down with injuries.

Catty youth teams play well in opener

Thursday, August 23, 2012 by The Press in Sports

Catty youth football is back.

Four teams traveled to Williams Township to take on the Rams of Williams Township.

The flag team put on an impressive show as the kids ran up and down the field snagging every flag they could. Since the league mandates that this level be used as an instructional level, no score is kept and no touchdowns are recorded.

Coach Silva and his staff did an excellent job keeping with the spirit of fair play and substituted each student-athlete according to the rules.

After his team's first scrimmage against Lehighton, Catasauqua head football coach Tom Falzone is beginning to see his squad piece together the big picture for the regular season ahead.

"It went well, and we were pleased," said the fourth-year head coach of Saturday's scrimmage. "That was a good start for us. There were really only two plays that cost us. After those, I thought we took control the rest of the time."

With the beginning of summer camp just upon them, Zach Stopay and Zach Labezius can still feel like they have had a few games already under their belts.

It has been a busy summer for the duo and the remaining six seniors as well as a cast of other in the Catasauqua football program. The Roughies participated in series of offseason workouts and a rash of passing camps leading to the official start of practice Monday. It can all successfully culminate when the Roughies open the regular season Aug. 31 against Wilson.

Matos likes to speak through actions

Thursday, August 9, 2012 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

In two short years, Catasauqua's Janae Matos has established herself as one of the premier athletes in the school's program as well as in the Colonial League. During that time, Matos has gained the recognition of her own coaches and peers and others along the way with her recognition as being a team leader in several ways and receiving her share of awards from the league and beyond.

Roughie football team already hard at work

Thursday, August 9, 2012 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

With the start of preseason practice just under way, Catasauqua head football coach Tom Falzone is already eagerly optimistic about his team's chances. A favorable showing in a series of 7-on-7, and 11-on-11 passing camps have fueled their fortunes toward the season-opener when they host Wilson Aug. 31.

The Roughies went against Central Catholic, Liberty, Lehighton and Nazareth, and they also attended a passing camp at Lafayette College where they met teams from New Jersey as well as Stroudsburg and Bethlehem Catholic.
