Wednesday, November 11, 2015 by MIKE HAINESAND TODD KRESS in Sports

Salisbury did all it could last week to bottle up Northwestern’s JD Haaf. But the Tigers’ top goal-scorer made the most of few opportunities to lead his to a 2-0 win in the District 11 Class AA boys soccer final.

“We try and deny him the ball but he’s a little more deceptive than he looks,” said Salisbury head coach Mark Allinson. “He’s the complete package.

Zack Stortini was one of the more popular members of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms inaugural team last season, but he wound up signing with the Binghamton Senators during the offseason. Sunday night was his first trip to Allentown as a visiting player and he chose the occasion to put one of the new members of the Phantoms to a test. Just as the opening puck was dropped, Stortini went after AHL rookie Tyrell Goulbourne, who is four-inches and 15-pounds smaller than the AHL veteran.

It proved to be a bad idea.

Just over the mountain and a few miles south on Route 309 resides one of Salisbury’s biggest rivals.

Salisbury junior James Hadinger was inches away from tying the game at a goal apiece on a header in the first 10 minutes of the second half. His header, unfortunately, hit the left post of Saucon Valley’s goal and was eventually booted out of harms way.

When Hadinger found himself in prime position not even a minute later for another equalizing goal, he didn’t let it go to waste.

Here what’s we know in each of the four classifications.

XC runners finish off season

Wednesday, November 4, 2015 by TODD in Sports

All things must come to an end. For the Salisbury boys and girls cross country teams, their 2015 season came to a close last week.

For the first season in quite some time, head coach Doug Hensinger won’t be making the trip to Hershey to watch any Falcons compete in the annual PIAA Cross Country Championships. But despite that void, the Falcons endured a successful season which ended with last Wednesday’s district meet.
