It’s probably a safe bet that Logan Kreglow didn’t encounter any obstacles along the parade route while participating in Egypt’s Curt Simmon’s Day Parade, recently
Kreglow, who will be making his second appearance this summer on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior, was invited to march in this year’s parade that was held on June. 1. He walked along with his family who were all wearing American Ninja Warrior T-shirts. The parade honors Simmons, an Egypt native, who spent 18 years as a pitcher in the major leagues, 11 of those years with the Phillies.
A goal-line stand late in the third quarter helped reignite Freedom’s offense, setting the stage for its win over Whitehall as their offense erupted for 21 points in the final period to remain undefeated.
With Whitehall knocking on the door after stringing together an 18-play drive that ate up most of the third quarter, the Patriots held firm at their own 2-yard-line, stopping running back Allen Negrete short on fourth-and-two as he attempted to draw the Zephyrs within one score.
Bethlehem Catholic didn’t waste any time erasing any notion that Friday’s state playoff game against Greater Nanticoke Area High School would be a repeat of last year’s meeting.
The Golden Hawks took command early, using a stifling interior defense, along with some torrid outside shooting, to go up 19-3 after the first period.
For the first half of the game against Whitehall last Friday night, Dashaun Peterson ran roughshod over the Whitehall defense, rushing for 166 yards and scoring three times to put them even with Zephyrs at the break.
It seemed like the right formula against a team that allowed 336 yards on the ground versus Parkland the prior week.
