Wednesday, June 18, 2014 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Bryce Fairclough is recovering from a grade two ankle sprain he suffered in the first game of the summer season. He may not be 100 percent recovered from that injury just yet, but he remains focused on improving his game on the court

As one of just three returning players who played consistent varsity minutes last season, and the only one in the Falcons' front court, Fairclough will be relied upon to help lead this team throughout the summer months.

Sonic to play in nation's oldest tourney

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 by PETER CAR in Sports

The FC Lehigh Valley United Sonic faces a tough task when it opens play in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup next Wednesday. Sonic will travel to Portland (ME) to take on GPS Portland Phoenix of the PDL next week in a task that head coach Dave Weitzman understands will be a difficult prospect.

"We really are at a disadvantage because they're starting this tournament earlier than usual because they've allowed more teams in the tournament," Weitzman said. "We won't have most of our guys because they're still in college. Playing on the road makes it that much more difficult."

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 by NICK HROMIAK Special to the Press in Sports

Thanks to a few days of warmer weather, this year's trout opener that kicks off March 29 in 18 southeastern counties, should not have snow covered banks if they get direct sunlight. The remainder of the state has an April 12 opening.

This year, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will have stocked 3.2 million trout in 731 streams and 124 lakes (like Leaser in Lehigh County). Of that total, 2.01 million are rainbow trout, 647,000 are brownies and 527,000 are brookies.
