Heading into last Friday's game against Notre Dame of Green Pond, the Salisbury boys basketball team was aware of the previous meeting - a 50-41 Crusader victory in mid-December when they pulled away late in the fourth quarter.
But this time around, with a lot more at stake, the ending was a little different.
Like they did the first time around, the Falcons once again carried a lead into halftime. And despite a late rally from the Crusaders, combined with a bucket in the final...
Prior to every meet's last event - the 400 freestyle relay - the Salisbury boys swimming team comes together for a traditional final huddle and chant, essentially reminding each other of finishing strong.
Thursday's meet against Southern Lehigh was no different as the squad got together right before their 400 freestyle relay. And with the meet already in hand, the Falcons' "Hillshire Farm" chant was still loud and clear.
Their 119-61 win over the Spartans at KidsPeace Broadway...
Take a look up at the banners lining the Salisbury High School gymnasium and you'll see a short list of wrestlers belonging to the school's 100-win club.
It's been quite some time since the Falcons have added another name to that list, as Matt Roncolato was the last Falcon to have reached the milestone back in 2000.
But now, 13 years later, one current Falcon has a chance at being included on that list.
That wrestler is senior Anthony Dee.
As of Sunday, Dee has...
Take away two quarters, and the Salisbury girls may be right there with the Colonial League elite.
But scoring a combined 12 points on 5-for-25 shooting in the first and third quarters was too much for the Falcons to overcome against a hot-shooting Notre Dame Green Pond on the road Thursday night.
The 46-34 defeat eliminates the Falcons from the Colonial League playoffs, but the team can still look forward to district play.
"They did some things offensively that we were...
Salisbury scored three wins, including one forfeit, in a loss to Wilson last week in Colonial League action.
Peter Samy scored the forfeit win at the 285 pound class as Salisbury's wrestlers took three of the last four contested bouts.
Nico Scarcia scored an 11-6 decision over Austin Lesher at 120 pounds. And Anthony Dee inched closer to 100 wins as he closed out the meet with an 8-0 major decision victory over Anthony Calantoni at 126 pounds
Tyler Brown knew that this was an important game.
Coming off a crucial 74-45 victory over Northern Lehigh, a team battling with the Falcons for a league playoff spot, Salisbury could not take Palisades lightly, especially at their home court, the Purple Pit.
Brown's all-around line - a game-high 10 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and two blocks - led the way to a 48-28 Colonial League victory last Thursday night at Palisades.
"We knew the Purple Pit was a tough...
The Salisbury boys were dominant again in their only meet last week, topping Blue Mountain 130-49 last Tuesday.
The Falcons were set up for a huge showdown with Southern Lehigh on Friday, but snow pushed the rivarly, a likely District 11 preview, to this Thursday at KidsPeace.
Against the Blue Eagles, Salisbury's boys took first in all but one event, sweeping the relays en route to another big victory.
Garrett Collins led the way with a pair of first place finishes in...
The Salisbury girls basketball team qualified for the District 11 playoffs with a 47-39 victory over Palisades Thursday night at Salisbury High School.
The Falcons return to the playoffs for the second straight year, after failing to make since the 2004-05 season.
The Falcons were lead by star sophomore Meagan Eripret, who scored a game high 28 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Eripret was the catalyst for the Falcons, who won their fourth straight Colonial League game, and have...
Salisbury head coach Jason Weaver sat and watched his JV team, with a 15-1 record, get off to a sluggish start against Palmerton on Friday. So it was no surprise his pre-game talk to the varsity squad was all about having a big first quarter when it took the court.
Weaver's words were put into motion rather quickly as the Falcons jumped out to a 21-6 first quarter lead and the never looked back in rolling to a 73-35 Colonial League win. It upped their record to 10-6 overall and 7-3 in...
Last Friday's game against Palmerton was one that Salisbury girls basketball head coach Joe Mladosich was waiting for the entire season.
It may have taken a little longer than expected, but the Falcons' 67-43 win over the Blue Bombers last week at Salisbury High School was an outing that was as impressive as any other during the season thus far.
The win stationed the Falcons - who have won three of their last four conference games - back to .500 in the Colonial League. The...
