Stolarz stops 51 shots in win over Syracuse

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

Anthony Stolarz continues to impress in goal for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. With his team fighting for their postseason lives, Stolarz made a franchise record 51 saves and then turned in a perfect performance in a shootout as Lehigh Valley downed Syracuse 3-2.

Stolarz’ night bested a performance by Carsen Chubak, who recorded 50 saves on April 6, 2014 against Albany when the team played in Adirondack, New York.

Danick Martel and Cole Bardreau each scored for the Phantoms in regulation. For Martel, it was his 20th goal of the season.

Two Tigers make states

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Six different Northwestern wrestlers took the mat on Friday when the PIAA Class 2A SE Region Tournament got underway.

By the conclusion of the final bouts on Saturday night, two Tigers punched their tickets to states. And it was a familiar duo from last year.

Quentin Bernhard and Caleb Clymer both advanced to the medal-winning rounds on Saturday at Reading’s Wilson West Lawn High School with their place in states already clinched. The only thing to decide was their place when the finals, third- and fifth-place matches began.

Clymer tradition continues

Caleb Clymer never wrestles alone.

Every time he takes the mat, the Northwestern sophomore carries with him a legacy dotted with greatness.

Clymer’s brothers – Ben, Bobby and Scott – combined to win five District 11 individual championships from 2004-11. Ben and Scott, who finished their careers at Northwestern with a combined 280 wins, were also two-time regional champions and both won state titles.

That success has helped to shape Caleb, both on and off the mat.

With the recent cold temperatures, ice fishing has become possible on local waters. Fishing has been decent so far on Pocono lakes and even north of there where temperatures allowed for safe ice.

Willie, from Willie’s Bait and Tackle in Cementon, said he’s been getting sporadic reports from places like Shohola and Pecks Pond where pickerel and bluegills were the main bite.

Lady Tigers fall in CL semifinal

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 by ED HEDES in Sports

Northwestern Lehigh girls head basketball coach Chris Deutsch had a long talk with his team following last week’s 53-18 loss to eventual Colonial League champion Southern Lehigh in the semifinals at Northern Lehigh.

He kept them in the locker room well beyond the usual time for his post-game speeches to make sure they realized the season wasn’t over and they had a lot of time to forget the rough night against the Spartans.

Bernhard, White get 100th

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

When Quentin Bernhard and Jarett White joined Northwestern’s varsity wrestling team as freshmen, the program was in a rebuilding stage.

The two are now seniors and the rebuilding process has been completed. In their four years they have helped the team return to its place as one of the Colonial League and District 11 championship contenders.

Both wrestlers recently crossed the 100-win milestone early in the postseason of their senior year.

Bernhard notched his 100th at the Colonial League team tournament in a semifinal win over Northern Lehigh.
