No matter what situation his team is in, Josh Snyder coaches his players to look at the next game on the schedule as the biggest game on the schedule. This week is the perfect example why.
Snyder doesn’t want his team looking back at its win over previously undefeated Saucon Valley, because that win won’t mean nearly as much if Bangor were to upset the Tigers Friday night.
Losing isn’t something the Northwestern girls’ cross country team has been forced to deal with in recent years.
The Lady Tigers entered the 2016 season having won 129 consecutive dual meets in Colonial League competition, a run that started in 2010.
That streak was snapped on Sept. 13 by Southern Lehigh.
Northwestern suffered its second loss of the season Tuesday – again at the hands of the Lady Spartans.
While Southern Lehigh swept Tuesday’s Colonial League meet to move to 21-0, it was Northwestern sophomore Madeline Consuelos that won the race.
For much of the season, Northwestern football head coach Josh Snyder had been drilling into his team the need to start games stronger rather than waiting until late in the game to start mounting some offense.
The Tigers came out with a quick start against Pen Argyl, but couldn’t hang on and wound up with a loss. Against previously undefeated Saucon Valley though, they got off to the fastest start possible when Trevor Cunningham returned the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown. From there, the Tigers went on to take a 15-6 win over the Panthers (5-1).
The Northwestern golf team had aspirations of finishing as a top-four team in the Colonial League and qualifying for the league championships at the beginning of the season. The Tigers, which finished the regular season at 10-3 in the North Division, achieved that goal with back-to-back wins over Bangor in the last week of the regular season.
The Hornets and Trojans tied for the second time in two meetings this season.
Josh Kiser scored Parkland’s goal with an assist from Mark Stenske.
Jonathan Heberlein scored for Emmaus.
Hornet goal keeper Dylan Sosnow made nine saves, while Jacob Varrato stopped three shots for Parkland.

Freedom-East Stroudsburg North
The Saucon Valley football team had its toughest test of the season last week at Southern Lehigh, but were able to walk away with a 26-21 win over the Spartans.
The win put the Panthers at 5-0 as they head into the second-half of the season with a schedule that will be tougher then the first-half was.
It starts this week when the Panthers are again on the road, coming into Tiger Stadium for a meeting with Northwestern (3-2).
