The Bethlehem middle school ice hockey team got off to a fast start in the 2019-2020 season.
The team won a back and forth battle with Salisbury. Five minutes into the first period Caden Dudeck scored an unassisted goal to give Bethlehem a 1-0 lead. Salisbury answered three minutes later to tie the score. Salisbury had three, first-period power plays, but Bethlehem’s defense limited Salisbury’s opportunities. With six minutes left in the second period Nick Moniz scored for Bethlehem to break the tie.

For the third time in program history, the Lehigh men’s soccer team has won the Patriot League Men’s Soccer Championship, defeating rival Lafayette, 1-0 Saturday night at the Ulrich Sports Complex in front of a packed crowd of 1,705 people. After finishing the regular season with an unblemished 6-0-3 record, the Mountain Hawks head into the NCAA Tournament with an overall record of 13-4-3, the team’s most wins since 2015 when they won the title for the second time.
Freedom graduate and Eastern University freshman Jared Whitehorn has played in all 17 soccer games for the Monarchs this season.
The Monarchs were crowned MAC Freedom Champions after defeating King’s College, 3-1, on Nov. 9.
On Oct. 16 in a 3-0 victory over Delaware Valley University, Whitehorn played a part in Eastern’s third goal when he ran up the right side and teammate Nik Kokolios picked up the ball, scoring inside the far post.
In an earlier season win over Cabrini, Whitehorn made two scoring attempts, one on a header that hit off the crossbar.

Bethlehem Catholic head football coach Joe Heinrich knew it was time to break his team’s recent skid over the past month, one in which the Golden Hawks had dropped three of their last four games.
A rematch with Pottsville in the District 11 Class 4A semifinal loomed as possible answer. The Golden Hawks thoroughly defeated the Crimson Tide the past two seasons in the same game.
Unfortunately for Becahi, it didn’t work.
