Vital, Barker moving on

Thursday, October 10, 2019 by SCOTT PAGEL AND MIKE HAINES in Sports

Bethlehem area golfers competed in the District 11 golf tournament on Monday at the Steel Club.

With only six golfers able to advance to regionals, the Hurricanes were well represented as Matt Vital shot a 74 for third and Jimmy Barker a 75 to take fourth. Both are freshman golfers which says a lot about the Hurricane program going forward.

“I played pretty good on the front,” said Vital. “On the back nine, my putting was just off and missed a lot of short ones - short birdie putts.”

Lehigh, Moravian win

Thursday, October 10, 2019 by The Press in Sports

Freshman Zaythan Hill scored the go-ahead touchdown on a nine-yard run with 33 seconds remaining and the Lehigh defense capped a superb effort by stopping Colgate one yard short as the Mountain Hawks opened Patriot League play with their second consecutive win, a 21-14 triumph over the defending Patriot League champion Raiders in the league opener for both teams Saturday at Andy Kerr Stadium.

Thursday, October 10, 2019 by KATIE MCDONALD in Sports

Liberty’s girls’ soccer team won three consecutive games last week, defeating Allen, 7-1, Dieruff, 5-1, and Northwestern Lehigh, 1-0.

In the Hurricanes’ game against Northwestern Lehigh on Saturday, Catherine Kelly scored the game-winning goal in overtime.

In the Hurricanes’ game against Dieruff, Kathryn Wescoe scored two goals in the first half, and Lindsey Heffernan scored one. Heffernan scored again in the opening minutes of the second half, and Kelly scored Liberty’s last goal two minutes later.

Assists were made by Alanysse Solomon, Caitlin Ohl, and Wescoe.

Pete’s Top-10: Pates back on top of poll

Thursday, October 10, 2019 by PETER CAR in Sports

With Easton proving it really wasn’t the top squad in the area, Freedom regains the top spot in this week’s poll. However, Nazareth is just as viable of a contender.

This week’s Becahi-Easton matchup will be telling for both schools, as it’s certainly the marquee bout of the week, while the Colonial League saw a shakeup with Northwestern downing Southern Lehigh.

Northampton keeps piling on points to lead the EPC North, but they’ll face Whitehall in two weeks to give them a taste of what they can do against the EPC South again.

Pates hot heading into final week

Thursday, October 10, 2019 by PETER CAR in Sports

With the volleyball regular season wrapping up this week, Freedom holds the cards to the EPC playoff picture.

The Patriots (13-2, 12-2) entered this week as the top-seed for the EPC tournament with three matches to go against Bethlehem Catholic, Easton and Liberty this week. With a win over Liberty (11-2, 11-2) already under their belt this season, Thursday’s regular season finale against the Hurricanes could be a huge match for league tournament seedings.

Outdoors: Time of year for fish migrations

Thursday, October 10, 2019 by NICK HROMIAK in Sports

October and November traditionally trigger trout and salmon migrations into Lake Ontario and Lake Erie tributaries where local anglers make the trek to experience some of the best trout and salmon fishing in North America.

Chinook and Coho salmon runs in Lake Ontario tributaries generally begin in mid-September and continue through early November. Steelhead begin their tributary runs in earnest in both these Great Lakes in mid-October, and provide fishing excitement through springtime.

Football Roundup LHS looks to turn it around; FHS, BC win

Thursday, October 10, 2019 by PETER CAR in Sports

Liberty desperate to turn things around

Liberty might be looking at a daunting task ahead of them, but the Hurricanes have been down this road before.

Off to a 2-5 start following last week’s defeat to Nazareth, the chances for a district berth look bleak, but if recent memory can serve a purpose, Liberty’s faithful can only look at last year’s turnaround as proof that John Truby’s troops can right the ship.

The Hurricanes were 2-5 at this point of the season a year ago and parlayed three game win streak to end the regular season into qualifying for the postseason.
