Soccer teams prepare for LVSSL playoffs

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 by TODD KRESS in Sports

When the Lehigh Valley Summer Soccer League (LVSSL) playoffs resume on Wednesday, the Salisbury boys and girls will look to take another step forward in their chase for a league championship.

For the Salisbury girls, who have two teams that have already advanced through one round of postseason play, it's a guarantee one of them will advance to the semifinals.

That's because the two will square off in the quarterfinals on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Wednesday, July 2, 2014 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Following one of Salisbury's best offensive innings of the season, the Falcons held a 5-2 lead through four innings against Emmaus. All five of those runs came in the third frame.

But as quickly as the Falcons responded from an early 2-0 deficit, an explosion from the Hornets' bats in the final three innings resulted in Salisbury's 10th loss in 11 games. Emmaus (6-8) scored six runs in the fifth and a combined five more in the sixth and seventh to drop Salisbury, 13-6, on Monday evening at Salisbury High School.

The Salisbury boys basketball team had a lead for most of the first half last Thursday night at Cedar Beach, but then the defense had a bit of a lapse.

Trailing in the second half, the Falcons began playing inspired basketball on both ends of the floor. Dasheen Reid and Brendan Reichenbach each had layups that gave Salisbury leads during a back-and-forth ending that saw the Falcons defeat Pleasant Valley, 55-51.

But it was from the charity stripe where the Falcons put themselves in a position to put the game out of reach.

Legion comes up short of league playoff berth

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Just last week, Salisbury's hopes at earning the eighth and final spot in the Lehigh Valley Legion baseball playoffs looked bleak.

But two quality regular season wins over the past week set up a one-game playoff against West Allentown for the last spot in this week's double-elimination LVL Tournament.

Unfortunately for the Falcons, their two-game win streak and playoff aspirations came to an end on Monday night, 5-3, against West Allentown.

The CSG Falcon White soccer team, which is the Salisbury High School girls summer teams in Group A of the Lehigh Valley Summer Soccer League (LVSSL), wrapped up its regular season on Monday night and heads into the playoffs as the group's top team.

Despite coming up short against Tribe United Gold (Upper Perk) on Monday, 3-2 in overtime at Lehigh University Fields and Goodman Campus, the Lady Falcons (5-2-2) face Group B's No. 8 seed when the playoffs begin on Wednesday.

LVL wins legion all-star baseball game

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Lehigh Valley faced a 3-0 deficit after the top of the third inning during last night's legion all-star game.

But that lead for Schuylkill-Berks was short lived. And once the Lehigh Valley bats got going, the offense didn't let up one bit.

Lehigh Valley responded with six runs in the bottom of the third, and added a run in the fifth and sixth innings to secure the 8-2 victory on Monday Night at FirstEnergy Stadium. It was the Lehigh Valley's third consecutive victory in the all-star game after dropping the inaugural game four years ago.

Falcons top Faith Christian

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.
