Football team faces unbeaten Panthers

Thursday, September 29, 2016 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

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).

Tigers fall to Green Knights

When Northwestern coach Josh Snyder brought his team out to the field for the second half of their game against Pen Argyl, he sensed that something just wasn’t right. His team held a 21-7 lead, but for some reason, the feeling just didn’t seem to be there for the second half even though Snyder couldn’t quite put his finger on what the problem was. After the second half of play, he still wasn’t sure exactly what happened or why, but he did know that his team had lost to Pen Argyl 35-21.

Young volleyball team is improving

Thursday, September 29, 2016 by EMMETT MCCALL in Sports

It’s been a rough start to the season for the Northwestern volleyball team.

The Tigers entered last Thursday’s match against Catasauqua with just one win in their first seven matches.

Despite the struggles, however, head coach Gabby Pergosky is excited about her team’s potential for growth.

Northwestern got started in the right direction against the Rough Riders as it breezed to a 25-9, 25-21, 25-5 Colonial League victory.

The reason for Pergosky’s optimism is her belief that the Tigers will benefit from game experience more than most teams.

Seyfried’s equalizer earns boys a draw

Last year Northwestern and Salisbury met twice in the boys soccer postseason. They were two of the best teams in the Colonial League and were the last two standing when the District 11 Class AA championship game came around.

This year the two are again among the best teams in the Colonial League. They met last week for their first and only regular season game. They played to a 1-1 draw that allowed both to escape without suffering the first loss on their 2016 schedule.

As Northwestern approaches the final third of the season, the Lady Tigers find themselves in a familiar position under head coach Kelly Bleam. Much like in past years, they are sniffing yet another Colonial League playoff appearance with a 6-1-1 record in league games.

Since falling to Southern Lehigh on September 16, Northwestern hasn’t lost a match. The Lady Tigers won two of their next three games, including a 9-1 romp over Pen Argyl on Monday. One of their more tested games came last week against Salisbury, which is now the lone unbeaten team remaining in the Colonial League.

Three second-half goals beat Falcons

When an avalanche starts to fall, it begins to pick up speed as it rushes down a mountain. Before you know it, the tumbling snow is too much to overcome.

The Northwestern field hockey team put on its own rendition of an avalanche over the weekend against Salisbury.

After not scoring in the opening 30 minutes, one early second-half goal resulted in a snowball effect for the Lady Tigers’ scoring the rest of the morning. Northwestern (2-3-1) scored three in the span of 10:17 to shut out Salisbury 3-0 on Saturday morning.
