Gonoude qualifies for state meet

Friday, November 2, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Kyle Gonoude doesn't let his mind get tangled up in complex race strategies. He doesn't want to overthink a cross country race. He likes to keep it simple.

It's been working for the Salisbury High School sophomore.

He put in a second straight medal-winning performance last Wednesday at the District 11 Championship Meet. Gonoude finished third overall, one place better than last year.

"I just ran as fast and as hard as I could for as long as I could," he said. "I try not...

New look line takes on Notre Dame GP

Thursday, October 25, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Coming off its best offensive performance of the season against Wilson last week, Salisbury will look to build off that momentum for their final two games.

First up for the Falcons (1-7) is Notre Dame-Green Pond (2-6), which have lost its last three games. During that span, the Crusaders have struggled offensively, averaging just nine points a game.

The Falcons meanwhile will look to snap a losing streak which has reached a season-high five games.

"We were able to run...

Spartans stun Falcons in CL soccer final

Thursday, October 25, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

The tone of Salisbury boys soccer head coach Mark Allinson's voice said it all.

The No. 4 seed Falcons led 2-0 against No. 3 seed Southern Lehigh in the Colonial League boys soccer championship game last Wednesday at Walter T. Rohrer Stadium at Palisades High School. And for nearly 76 minutes, the Falcons had their eyes set on a league title.

But the Spartans had other plans.

Two Southern Lehigh goals in the final 4:16, including one with 5.3 seconds remaining by Matthew...

Warrior offense overpowers Salisbury

Thursday, October 25, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Salisbury head coach Andy Cerco and the Falcons knew Wilson's offense was capable of putting up points and creating big plays with their playmakers across the field.

And that was evident from the Warriors first play from scrimmage.

The Warriors - who recorded eight plays that went for 20 yards or more with three of those going for at least 50 yards - built a comfortable 27-13 lead at halftime. Three more scores in the second half helped Wilson leave to its second win of the...

Boys cross country success continues at Colonial League meet

Thursday, October 25, 2012 by LOU RUSNOCK in HS Sports

Kyle Gonoude and Garrett Collins are opposites when it comes to cross country racing.

Gonoude prefers the grueling task of racing the hills. Collins would rather show his speed on flatter straightaways.

Together the two have proved to be a fairly formidable duo and last Wednesday showcased their skills once again at the Colonial League championship meet held at DeSales University.

Bolstered by Gonoude's second place finish, the boys team finished third out of the 14...

Falcons reach Colonial League final

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Mark Allinson wasn't satisfied with his team's 2-0 lead.

He knew that one goal by top-seeded Saucon Valley could swing momentum in Monday's Colonial League boys soccer semifinal.

The Salisbury head coach got what he wanted when forward Kevin Barahona scored on a free kick play to give the Falcons a 3-0 lead, which they would hold onto for the win.

"That third goal just crushed them," said Allinson. "It was a nice free kick. Anytime you have a 2-0 lead, they get one goal...

Tennis tandems end year at districts

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Head coach Rob Benson was in utter joy that two Salisbury girls tennis teams qualified for districts.

Senior Ali Greenholt and Talli Oliver was the number one team, and Laura Albright and Michelle Dang was the number two Falcons double team. Both teams experienced early exits from the tournament, but with Greenholt being one of only two seniors on the roster, the young Falcons gained some vital experience to try and make a deeper run next year.

"The ladies have come so far this...

Falcons looking for a win against Warriors

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

After traveling to Saucon Valley and Palisades in the previous two weeks, the Salisbury football team is eager to return home for this week's matchup against Wilson.

The Falcons (1-6) will look to halt their four-game losing skid when the Warriors (1-6) visit on Friday night. The Warriors have lost their last five games.

Senior quarterback Ryan Dailey leads a Warrior offense that has averaged 27.5 points per game over their last two contests. If the Falcons want to slow down...

Rosario splits time between soccer, field hockey

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Salisbury senior Jessica Rosario has been a member of both the girls soccer and field hockey teams since her freshman season.

It wasn't until this season, however, that Rosario would have to make a decision she hadn't in the past. Now that the girls soccer program had been moved into the fall season along with field hockey, Rosario was left with a choice.

Instead, Rosario took a slightly different path. She wasn't going to give up either sport in the fall season. With the...

Girls soccer falls short in Notre Dame match

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Mackenzie Groff jogged back to midfield getting high fives from her teammates after her second goal in two minutes, during the opening half. But the quick start by Salisbury was not enough to stop a late run by Notre Dame Green Pond, netting three second half goals to win a 5-4 thriller Monday night at Notre Dame High School.

The win catapults the Crusaders near the top four seedings for next week's Colonial League playoffs. The loss seemingly eliminates Salisbury (8-7, 7-5) from...
