Top-10: Pates on top

Friday, October 19, 2018 by PETER CAR in Sports

After last week’s Miracle in Macungie what does week nine have in store for local football fans?

Not sure anything can top Freedom’s 32-31, overtime win over Emmaus, but this week offers the Hornets another shot at a big game when they travel to Bethlehem Catholic.

Nazareth is quietly moving its way up the poll, while Notre Dame might be the new top dog in the Colonial League.

1. Freedom (8-0)

Last week’s rank: #1

This just seems like a magical year for the Pates. Nine straight wins this week.

The Pick: Freedom 42- Central Catholic 14

Editor’s note: We’ll have results of the Colonial League meet in next week’s edition.

For the Catasauqua cross country team, it has been a momentous year.

They also can continue to build on it.

During the regular season, the girls’ team won nine meets and the boys’ squad captured five meets.

Head coach Kyle Rusnock believed the Roughies’ success was a record one. From the start, Catty has been on a steady incline. The Roughies will have 37 runners in the postseason.
