Hicks continues to shine in goal for Roughies

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Last season, Catasauqua’s Maddie Hicks was named as the Colonial League first team goalkeeper, as he has a banner year with 178 saves.

However, she admittedly wasn’t expecting it.

“My coach pulled me aside to tell me,” said Hicks. “I didn’t have any clue that I would be mentioned. I was so surprised, and I didn’t expect it at all.

“It felt really great being recognized by other players and coaches for what I was able to do for the team. I definitely hope I can continue to do it this year.”

So far, she has.

Pete’s Top-10: Eagles soar to top

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by PETER CAR in Sports

We have a new team at the top of the poll following Nazareth’s 35-33, thrilling win over Freedom last Friday night.

It was one of the best high school games the area has seen in a while and now the Blue Eagles have the task of upholding their status at the top by hosting Bethlehem Catholic Friday night. It could mark back-to-back weeks where Nazareth is involved in the top contest in the area and those things tend to happen when you have the best quarterback in the region with Anthony Harris under center.

The Moravian College football team held a lead through most of the first half and the majority of the fourth quarter until visiting McDaniel College scored its only touchdown of the game with 12 seconds remaining to earn a 13-10 victory over the host Greyhounds at Rocco Calvo Field Saturday in the Centennial Conference opener for each school.

The Hounds dropped their first home game of the season as the squad turned the ball over seven times and had a punt blocked while still having the lead late into the fourth.

With an increasing number of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) cases occurring within certain areas of Pennsylvania’s deer herd, the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) is soliciting input from sportsmen on a response plan before more areas are affected.

To date the CWD has designated three CWD areas: Disease Management Area 3 (DMA3), encompasses WMU 2E and includes parts Jefferson and Indiana counties; DMA2, the largest of the affected areas, covers WMUs 4B, 4A, 5A and parts of 2G and 4D; DMA4 covers Lebanon, parts of Lancaster and Berks counties.

Catty travels to Wilson looking for first win

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Catasauqua had its first win of the season in its sights when it trailed winless Palisades 13-0 at halftime at Alumni Field last Friday night. They had intercepted a pass late in the half that gave them some momentum.

Unfortunately, the Roughies (0-4) quickly lost their focus.

Palisades (1-3) erupted with 29 unanswered points after halftime and cruised to a 42-0 victory at Alumni Field.

Roughs fall to Knights

Thursday, September 12, 2019 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

About 10 minutes before kickoff at Pen Argyl Saturday, Catasauqua head football coach Mike McClarin finally learned that starting senior quarterback Adam Reinhart wouldn’t be available due to a probable bout of mononucleosis.

Freshman Christian Fye literally got a last-minute nod to step under center, and he did a credible job in the team’s 49-6 defeat to the previous winless host Green Knights (1-2) last Saturday afternoon.
