Blue Bombers avenge tourney loss

Wednesday, July 3, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Just four days after Salisbury defeated Palmerton in the small school division championship game of the Bash at the Beach tournament, the two teams met once again in the Cedar Beach Summer League last week.

The script was a bit different this time around.

Salisbury’s offense went silent in the second half, and Palmerton capitalized on it. The Blue Bombers avenged their only loss in the tournament with a 39-26 win over the Falcons last Thursday at Cedar Beach Park.

“I...

Girls soccer uses summer to prepare for HS season

Wednesday, July 3, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

The high school fall soccer season is still a couple of months away, but local teams are putting in the work this summer in preparation for September.

Salisbury is one of those teams. The CSG Falcons recently shut out H-Town (Saucon Valley) last week, 4-0, in a meeting of Colonial League foes in the Lehigh Valley Summer Soccer League (LVSSL) at Lehigh University. Salisbury improved to 5-1 with the victory in Group B play.

“This is a good preparation for us,” Falcon head coach...

Falcons win Bash at the Beach

Thursday, June 27, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Salisbury has been a regular participant of basketball tournaments in the summer at Cedar Beach. But over the past few years the Falcons’ experiences have been short-lived. The last time Salisbury advanced to Sunday, the final day of play, was back in 2015.

Not only did the Falcons break that curse this past weekend, they brought home some hardware as well. Salisbury won seven straight games, including a 46-41 victory over fellow Colonial League foe Palmerton in the small school...

Salisbury falls to Coplay in LV Legion

Thursday, June 27, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Salisbury head coach Scott Heppenheimer didn’t have any answers as to why the Falcons’ bats were virtually nonexistent on Monday against Coplay. It just seemed to be one of those nights.

Coplay scored four runs in the bottom of the second inning and never looked back as it captured a 7-0 victory over Salisbury at Sam Balliet Stadium. The Falcons recorded just four hits in the shutout loss.

“We were flat,” Heppenheimer said. “Obviously you saw the first two innings. [Pitcher]...

Silberman, LV ready for CC softball tourney

Thursday, June 20, 2019 by KATIE McDONALD in Sports

Salisbury pitcher Emily Silberman is in her second year as a member of Lehigh Valley’s Carpenter Cup softball team, coached by Blake Morgan.

“I don’t think it’s really different than last year, but it’s still nice to be able to meet new girls, and I actually know more of the girls this year,” said Silberman.

The Lehigh Valley team bonded this past Wednesday at an Iron Pigs game.

“We sat together talking about high school softball and high school tournaments,” Silberman...

Errors hurt Falcons in loss

Thursday, June 20, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

The Salisbury legion baseball team got off to a nice start to its 2019 regular season, winning two of its first four games and tying another. But last Friday evening the Falcons had a hard time both in the field and at the plate as they fell to North Parkland 2-0 at Salisbury High School.

The Falcons (2-2-1 overall) did not record a hit, made three errors and had a rough outing overall, but it’s not what has epitomized the season thus far. The two-time defending league champions have...

Falcons suffer first loss

Thursday, June 20, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Salisbury started the summer basketball season with five straight wins. And last Tuesday’s game looked as if win No. 6 was well on the way, especially early in the game.

But a number of old habits surfaced late in the second half against one of the Colonial League’s top teams. Notre Dame (Green Pond) erased a 12-point Salisbury lead in the first half to down the Falcons, 50-46, last week at Cedar Beach.

“Just way too many turnovers,” Salisbury head coach Jason Weaver said. “It’...

“I’m excited to continue to teach these kids everything that I have learned throughout my playing career and to help...
