Thursday, October 10, 2019 by PETER CAR in Sports

Liberty saw its six-game winning streak come to an end last week following a 6-1 defeat to Emmaus.

The Hurricanes (12-4, 11-4) should be able to lock up a top-five seed this week if they handle their business against East Stroudsburg South (4-11) and Freedom (5-12) in their final two...

The Patriots (5-1) dispatched Pocono Mountain West easily last week 42-8 and Bethlehem Catholic (4-2) bounced back from their uninspiring defeat to Nazareth the week before to handle a winless Whitehall squad to the tune of 42-17.
