Girls harriers take fifth at invitational

Friday, September 18, 2015 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

With three runners missing from the varsity line up, the Northwestern girls cross country team had to readjust its goals heading into the annual early-season DeSales Invitational.

Most years the Lady Tigers are looking to win it. This year, with two seniors taking SATs the day of the race and another senior resting an injury, the goal was a top-five finish Saturday in Center Valley.

Tigers bounce back, beat Bangor

The Tigers weren’t going to sulk about their opening-week loss to Notre Dame (Green Pond). Instead, they came out firing against Bangor and picked up a 39-0 win.

Harry Hall again led Northwestern’s offense — at least in the relatively short time that he played — with 146 yards on 10 carries. Hall took the first play from scrimmage 76 yards for a touchdown, setting the tone for the game.

Knights’ feature strong running game

Anyone who saw Pen Argyl in its season-opening 20-7 loss to Northern Lehigh, but didn’t see the Green Knights last week against Palmerton hasn’t really seen the true Green Knights.

Head coach Paul Reduzzi wasn’t happy seeing his team pick up just 102 yards of offense in week one, so he ditched the spread offense that seemed somewhat inept against Northern Lehigh in favor of a power offense against the Blue Bombers.

Tigers look for first win against Bangor

Friday, September 11, 2015 by CHUCK HIXSONSPECIAL TO THE PRESS in Sports

With a tough loss to Notre Dame in the opening week of the season, the question is, how will the Northwestern Tigers respond against Bangor. Will they still be licking their wounds from the opener or will they come out with a renewed fire against the Slaters?

Odds are that the early season wake-up call is going to put Northwestern on a mission to leave that as the only loss of the season and the Tigers look to restart the season against Bangor.

Dietrich nets pair of goals in shutout win

After Freedom dropped Northwestern from its schedule prior to the start of the season, head coach Lissa Opolsky and the Lady Tigers needed to fill that void. Enter Holy Reedemer from the Wyoming Valley Conference.

While Northwestern came up on the short end of the stick against Holy Reedemer, a 1-0 loss on Friday, the Lady Tigers took a number of positives away from that game. It showed in their Colonial League opener on Tuesday.

Defending champs fall to ND

Friday, September 11, 2015 by CHUCK HIXSONSPECIAL TO THE PRESS in Sports

One of the hallmarks of the 2014 Northwestern football team was its ability to limit turnovers. That enviable trait wasn’t on display last Friday night when the Tigers turned the ball over four times, helping Notre Dame (Green Pond) to a 30-19 win over last year’s District 11 2A Champions. The win was notable for Notre Dame, who went 0-10 last season, but are infused with talent from the former Pius X team.
