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...

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...

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...

Sophomore Kody Long shot an 83 for 15th place. Junior Luke Chassard fired an 85 and tied for 17th.

"It's my first time ever at leagues so it...

Babyak pleased with effort in loss to Northwestern

Thursday, September 27, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

The games for the Salisbury girls soccer team have started to become a little tougher near the midway point of the season.

After starting off the year 5-2 in the Colonial League's North Division, the Falcons will now begin the South Division portion of their schedule in the upcoming week.

But before all of that, the Falcons (6-4; 6-2 Colonial League) capped off the North Division against their toughest opponent to date in Northwestern Lehigh (10-0, 7-0).

And despite the...

Boys soccer stifled by Tigers in first loss

Thursday, September 27, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

As summer fades away on the calendar, fall weather begins to break through. Last Thursday afternoon's soccer game between the Northwestern Tigers and Salisbury Falcons had the feel of a playoff atmosphere of late October, in mid-September.

Hard tackles, teammates yelling out directions and the two teams jawing back and forth highlighted this up-and-down contest. Brandon Ettl curled in a free-kick 10 minutes into the second half, and the Tigers defense held firm in a 1-0 Colonial...

Thursday, September 27, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

After suffering their worst loss of the season last week to Catasauqua, 43-3, the Salisbury football team will have to look past that and move on mentally in preparation for next week's game.

And Falcon head coach Andy Cerco believes his team is ready for that.

"I talked to our kids [Monday] about where are you at mentally," said Cerco. "And they all checked Catty out of their mind. They're focused on Northern Lehigh, and doing what they need to to prepare for that game....
