Bradley part of Parkland coaching staff

Thursday, December 6, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Since his youth, Zack Bradley always has been infatuated with coaching.

It stemmed from his father Steve’s long career as well as former Liberty head football coach and longtime family friend Tim Moncman.

“Since I was little, I used to watch the Liberty team practice and their games,” said Bradley, the former Roughies quarterback who is the school’s all-time passing yards and touchdown leader. “I always wanted to coach and looked up to a coach Moncman.

“He and my father always have had a big influence over me.”

Now that connection is much closer.

Field hockey looks to overcome

Thursday, December 6, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Catasauqua first –year head field hockey coach Emily Marley didn’t base her season on wins and losses.

Instead, it was adjusting to a new system in place as well as a process. The Roughies recently ended their season with an 0-18 mark.

Their campaign was marred by a series of mishaps.

“It was not exactly how I wanted it to go,” said Marley about the season. “This definitely was a rebuilding year. We had a lot of freshmen and sophomores out there.

Catty girls made the effort

For the Catasauqua girls’ soccer team, it was about getting to the next level.

That didn’t necessary involve wins and losses, but it was about effort.

The sixth-seeded Roughies stunned third-seeded Tri-Valley, 3-2, in the opening round of districts, but they then suffered a hard-fought, 1-0 defeat to second-seeded Moravian Academy in the semifinals. It was Catty’s first win in district play since 2007 when they eventually advanced to the state finals.

With his first season under his belt, Mike McClarin realizes there is still plenty of football education ahead in all phases.

“We are still learning as players and as coaches,” said McClarin. “We are learning how to play better and how to coach better. It is really a process.

“We all became better as the season went on. We all made sacrifices and it will help us in the end.”

The Roughies ended their season with a 49-14 loss to Northampton on Alumni Field Thanksgiving morning that left them with an overall 1-10 record.

Still a special year for Catty seniors

Friday, November 30, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

For seniors Brad Panto, Wilquon Clemons, and Devon Troxell, the recent annual Thanksgiving Day clash with Northampton marked an end to their memorable careers as well as a cavalcade of memories in the Brown and White.

Panto was among the team’s leading tacklers on defense from his middle linebacker spot and also the leader on the offensive front. It likely marked the end of his football playing days, but the lessons and experiences that will linger.

The Roughies’ overall record of 4-19 the past two seasons is an insignificant factor.
