Boys soccer picks up two wins

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by SCOTT W. PAGEL in Sports

Northampton's boys soccer team beat Eastburg South and Parkland in recent matches.

Against East Stroudsburg, the Kids won 3-1.

Tim Kelly finished an open net shot four minutes into the first half and the route was on as the Northampton boys won their home opener last Wednesday afternoon.

Ian Miller played the first ball to Sam Gaye, who slotted the ball to Kelly, who found paydirt early.

AJ Schroettner got the second goal off of a ball played across the box from...

K-Kids looking for more wins

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by WENDY KENNEDY Special to the Press in Sports

Northampton's volleyball started their 2013 season with a 1-3 overall record and a 0-2 record within their conference.

The team's roster is heavy with senior talent and is rounded out with several underclassmen who are really stepping up this year. First year coach Morgan Litak seems pleased both the makeup of team and the level of commitment and contribution the team has displayed so far.

"We have nine seniors on the varsity roster that are seeing a ton of playing time,"...

Kids will need help

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in Sports

The Northampton golf team is the defending District 11 team champions.

With that accolade comes honor and also a big target on their back for this season. Unfortunately for the Konkrete Kids, some of the other Lehigh Valley Conference elite hit that target right on the mark.

Back on August 20 Northampton played Emmaus in a tri-match where Emmaus was looking for revenge after losing to the K-Kids by just one stroke in districts last year. This time around, Northampton (382) came...

Girls drop two matches

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by The Press in Sports

The girls tennis team lost a couple of recent games.

Stroudsburg topped the Kids 5-2.

Northampton's only winners were Emma Angle at number-three singles. She defeated Stefi Lunda 6-4, 6-0. At number three singles, Delaney Haggerty and Jolene Stearns were very close, 7-5, 7-6 (5) winners over Mariah Bostwick and Maci Kendrick.

In another close match that didn't go the Kids way, Leah Hodge and Angle lost at number-one doubles to Yasmine Hasan and Sophia Rostock 8-7 (9-7...

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by SCOTT W. PAGEL in Sports

The Northampton cross country teams got off to good starts this season with boys and girls wins over Allen and Dieruff in a meet at Nazareth.

The boys beat the Huskies 16-45 and topped the Canaries 20-41. The girls won 15-50 over both teams.

"The girls ran very well for their first meet," head coach Dan Benner said.

The girls had six of the top-nine finishers in the race, which also included Nazareth runners. The Kids Joelle Perelli was the overall winner with a time of...

Good start

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by GEORGE GEIGER Special to the Press in Sports

Two nonleague games and two wins has Kelly Backenstoe "hoping the Konkrete Kids will be a leader" as Northampton begins Lehigh Valley Conference field hockey play.

Victories (4-2 over Catasauqua and 7-1 over Pleasant Valley) have Backenstoe "excited" about her team's chances in the LVC and especially in the league's tough North Division.

The Kids began LVC play Wednesday night, after Press deadlines, at Whitehall and entertain Parkland Friday for their first home game of the...

Boys start 2-1, girls fall to 0-3

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by The Press in Sports

The Northampton boys soccer team picked up a win in their first game and went 2-1 overall this past week.

Against the Mounties, Sam Gaye received a long ball from Julian Santos and placed it low past keeper Nico Ruiz for an exciting 2-1 overtime win to start the season Friday afternoon. The goal came with four minutes remaining in the first overtime.

Trailing 1-0, Northampton got the tying goal with just 2:25 in regulation when Cameron Peploe finished a ball played to him from...

Kids look to avoid 0-2 start

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by PETER CAR in Sports

If an opening season loss to Stroudsburg put Northampton behind the eight ball, what will happen in week two with a talented Nazareth team on the horizon?

Following last week's disappointing and surprising 49-26 home loss to Stroudsburg, the K-Kids try to regroup as they technically host Nazareth this Friday night.

Obviously, with Nazareth playing on their home turf, it's just like another home game for the Blue Eagles, who waxed Pleasant Valley last week 31-9.


Pete's Top-10 Parkland is number-one in the poll

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by PETER CAR in Sports

So, what did we learn from week one of football. Well, one thing for sure is that there are a lot of bad teams out there. On the bright side, Dieruff has actually improved and that should give everyone on the East Side a feel good story. Whitehall came away with the most surprising win last week, while Liberty kicked off the John Truby era with a big win.

Major showdowns across the board in the LVC and Colonial League this week, which makes for an interesting poll.

Northampton tennis team sweeps by Dieruff
