Girls soccer falls short in Notre Dame match

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Mackenzie Groff jogged back to midfield getting high fives from her teammates after her second goal in two minutes, during the opening half. But the quick start by Salisbury was not enough to stop a late run by Notre Dame Green Pond, netting three second half goals to win a 5-4 thriller Monday night at Notre Dame High School.

The win catapults the Crusaders near the top four seedings for next week's Colonial League playoffs. The loss seemingly eliminates Salisbury (8-7, 7-5) from...

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

There's no question the Salisbury girls field hockey team is enduring a tough season on the field.

But that didn't stop the Falcons from fighting and remaining poised during Saturday's nonconference matchup against Dieruff at American Parkway Fields.

Behind an early goal from forward Kayleigh Dottery, the Falcons held on for the 1-0 victory to capture their second of the season.

"It feels really good especially since, even though we're at the end of the season, we're...

For the first time in history District 11 crowned four champion golfers this season.

Monday, the first district tournament was conducted in which the field was broken up into classes, 2A and 3A for both boys and girls.

NL ground attack too much for Falcons

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Salisbury knew it would be tough going up against Northern Lehigh's potent rushing attack during Friday night's Colonial League matchup at Salisbury High School.

There was little the Falcons could do, however, as the Bulldogs totaled 247 yards on the ground en route to the 38-6 victory last week.

Led by running back Caleb Johnson who rushed for a team-high 112 yards, the Bulldogs ballooned a 6-0 lead after the first quarter to 31-0 at halftime. And Johnson had a part in each...

Football team trying to end skid against Saucon

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

When Salisbury (1-4) travels to Saucon Valley (1-4) for Friday night's Colonial League football matchup, both teams will be looking to get win number two under their belts as the middle of the season approaches.

The Falcons will look too get back on track after combining for just nine points in their last two losses against Catasauqua (43-3) and Northern Lehigh (38-6).

Meanwhile, the Panthers will look to get their second win in three weeks.

The Falcons will have to deal...

Forsyth, Chassard reach District 11 tourney

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

In most tournaments, golfers are playing to win and second place means about as much as fifth or 10th or last.

The District 11 Championship Qualifying Tournament is a little different. There's not medal for first place, no prize for winning. And for most golfers, 10th place or 15th place feels just as good as first. The only thing that matters is getting through the tournament and advancing to the district championships.

"You're just trying to keep your head on, get the ball...

Boys soccer team can't overcome first half double

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Last week, the Salisbury boys soccer team showed its resiliency, bouncing back from a one-goal loss to Northwestern to earn a big league win over Moravian Academy.

They'll look to do the same this week against Southern Lehigh, after being defeated by Saucon Valley 2-1 on Saturday afternoon at home.

Two first half goals within a minute of each other allowed the Panthers to fall back into a prevent defense, which had two or three defenders shadowing their goal for most of the...
