Considering the way Friday night's championship game between Salisbury and Parkland in the Parkland Holiday Classic started, many would have expected the Falcons to pack it in early.
But don't tell that to head coach Jason Weaver.
Despite falling behind 13 points after the first quarter and trailing 22-6 in the opening moments of the second, the Falcons erased that deficit and led 43-39 - their largest lead of the game - heading into the final quarter.
And while the...
Two weeks after falling in the final event, the Salisbury girls pulled off a dominant win in the 400 free relay to take down Central Catholic by a point at KidsPeace last week.
The Lady Falcons entered the last race trailing by three points, but the foursome of Danielle Guttman, Alyssa Sipos, Kaliegh Bobeck and Meredith Heydt delivered a victory in the relay by over a minute as the girls slipped past the Vikettes 83-82.
Guttman was instrumental in the victory, earning maximum...
Following their first conference loss of the season to Notre Dame-Green Pond just two days earlier, the Salisbury boys basketball team looked to get back on track against one of the tougher Colonial League foes in Wilson.
And for over three quarters of play on Thursday night at Salisbury High School, neither team could significantly separate itself from the other.
Wilson, however, scored 10 of the fourth quarter's first 14 points, increasing its lead to double digits with just...
The Salisbury girls picked up their first win of the season, downing Quakertown 83-40 as part of a 1-1 week in the water. The boys team remained perfect by dropping both Stroudsburg and Quakertown.
The girls win on Friday came thanks to big days from Danielle Guttman, Alyssa Sipos and Kaleigh Bobeck, who each won two individual events.
Guttman, the girls' top freestyler, won both the 100 and 200 frees. She also led off the victorious 200 and 400 free relays. Sipos joined her on...
There wasn't much for Salisbury girls basketball head coach Joe Mladosich to say after his team's 48-43 loss to Wilson on Saturday night.
Rattled and disrupted by Wilson's pressure for much of the second half, the Falcons were forced into a slew of turnovers that erased a nine-point third quarter lead to a five-point deficit early in the fourth.
The Falcons tied the game on a number of occasions in the fourth - most lately at 41-41 off a Meagan Eripret layup and free throw -...
The six Salisbury wrestlers competed well against Northern Lehigh in a Colnial League matchup last Wednesday.
While the Falcons had no shot at a team win due to the number of forfeits, Salisbury took half of the six bouts it competed in.
Heavyweight Peter Samy was the first Salisbury wrestler to earn points and he won a hard-fought decision over Thomas Nesfeder, 6-3.
At 126 pound, Salisbury's top grappler Anthony Dee had another good outing, pinning Ryan Rubio in just 1:...
Only six wrestlers were available for Salisbury in last Wednesday's Colonial League matchup. But the half dozen team members were very impressive in a 54-15 loss.
Of the six who competed, three earned wins, including a pair of pins from Nicolas Scarcia and Zachary Adams.
Scarcia gave the Falcons an early lead by pinning Kory Mindler in just 35 seconds in the 120-pound bout.
After a forfeit at 126, Anthony Dee faced Catasauqua's Jacob Rusnock at 132. Dee, who got off to a...
Following their season-opening loss to Blue Mountain, the Salisbury boys basketball team has quickly turned the corner and moved past that defeat.
Last Tuesday's 54-42 victory over Palisades to kick off Colonial League play was the first of three straight wins for the Falcons.
The Falcons then defeated Saucon Valley (69-55) on Friday to improve to 2-0 in league play, and followed that up with a 62-47 win over Northampton the following day.
Still, despite getting that all...
Megan Hrebik and Meagan Eripret are off to superb starts for the Salisbury girls basketball team.
During Friday's 44-30 victory over Saucon Valley, Hrebik tallied a team-high 17 points, including seven in the fourth quarter, in helping the Falcons outlast the Panthers. With the win, the Falcons improved to 2-0 in the Colonial League as they head into Tuesday's matchup against Notre Dame of Green Pond.
It wasn't their best overall effort of the season, as the Falcons led by just...
Due to its small size, the Salisbury girls swimming team will be hard-pressed to win many meets this season.
While the girls have several strong individual swimmers and may win a majority of the events, a team win, which favors deep squads, could be elusive.
Going into the final event of last week's meet against Allen, the girls had a win in their sights. But a strong swim from the Chicks' 400 free relay team denied the girls a chance to break into the win column as the fell 88...
