Both Salisbury teams make playoffs

Wednesday, August 7, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

At first, it was not definite that Salisbury would be able to put two girls teams in the Lehigh Valley Summer Soccer League.

Not only did the Lady Falcons come up with enough players for two squads, but both teams put together solid showings that has head coach Rick Babyak excited for the upcoming high school season.

Composed on of mostly incoming freshman players, CSG Falcon White went 6-1-1 over the season in the early division and had one of the best defensive squads. They...

Hrebik reaches goals in senior season

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special the Press in Sports

One way or another, all athletic careers must come to an end at some point.

Before Megan Hrebik called it quits, there were a few things she sought to accomplish in her final season on the girls basketball team: a winning record, an appearance in the district tournament, and to eclipse a rare milestone.

She managed to achieve all of those goals. She helped the Falcons to a 13-10 (9-7 in Colonial League) record last year, their first winning season after seven consecutive losing...

Reichenbach enjoyed record-breaking year

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

Dan Reichenbach grew up hearing stories from his dad about track and field.

His father was a jumper on the Salisbury track and field team during his high school years and held many Falcon records. Like his father, Reichenbach also is in the record books at Salisbury, and specializes as a jumper too, in the triple jump and long jump.

As a three-sport athlete during his senior year, participating in track and field, basketball and golf, Reichenbach had an impact for a team during...

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

The Salisbury football team is just a few weeks away from the start of the regular season, and is entering year number two under head coach Andy Cerco's guidance.

The Falcons have been busy at work in the offseason in preparation for the upcoming season that will begin on August 30 against Bangor.

Allentown's Oswald wins BASS sweepstakes

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 by NICK HROMIAK Special to the Press in Sports

According to the popular BASS, a bass fishing organization, a local Allentown angler won its recent "Fish With Skeet" sweepstakes.

Douglas Oswald of Allentown entered the fishing sweepstakes close to 40 times when his name was recently drawn. When he got a call from BASS Membership Director Mitch Frank, he knew something was up.

"I was hoping that was what the call was about," said Oswald. "There aren't too many times when the membership director calls and asks you to call back...

SOCCER

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 by The Press in Sports

The Salisbury soccer summer team, CSG Falcons, literally fought an uphill battle against Pennridge in its playoff loss last Wednesday.

The Falcons fell to the Rams 3-2 on Lehigh University's Goodman Campus, and were given the disadvantage of playing on the end of the field that required running uphill slightly in the second half.

Pennridge controlled possession for most of the first half, but the Falcons played well and were able to negate the ball control with solid defense in...

Salisbury goes 0-2 in regional playoff

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in Sports

For Salisbury, the Pennsylvania American Legion Baseball Region 2 Tournament got ugly even before it started.

Three days before the opening game, Salisbury was informed that it would not play its first game on Saturday night, but rather Saturday afternoon. That may not seem like a major issue, but many of the Salisbury players had asked for time off from summer jobs or otherwise rearranged schedules so they would be available for the game. The late change sent players and coaches...

Constitution ousts boys team

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

During SportsFest's recent A-town Throwdown boys basketball tournament, not many teams could say they advanced out of pool play with a perfect mark.

Salisbury, however, was able to do just that.

The Falcons went 3-0 in their pool, capturing victories over Governor Mifflin (71-47), Burlington Township (43-17), and Easton (54-52) before coming up just short against eventual tourney runner-up Constitution early Sunday morning.

"This was a great tournament for us," said head...

Falcons take second, earn spot in regional

Wednesday, July 17, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in Sports

Technically, Monday night's Lehigh Valley Legion Championship didn't mean much. We already knew that North Parkland, the league's regular season champion, would be going to regionals and Salisbury would take the number two spot thanks to its appearance in the tournament championship.

But still, no team wants to be beaten by the same opponent four times in a season.

For most of the game, it looked like Salisbury was in good shape. But two runs in the bottom of the seventh doomed...
