On paper, Northampton’s football team appears to be out to a strong start with a 2-1 record, posting consecutive shutouts in which they registered a total of 112 points.
Yet, head coach Kyle Haas knows the Konkrete Kids still need to fine tune some things even with a 63-0 trouncing of Pleasant Valley last Friday night.
The Kids had a 42-0 lead at halftime, and they scored on their first nine possessions.
“It was a big win and to win in that manner was good,” said Haas. “...

The most anticipated archery deer hunting season kicks off this Saturday in Wildlife Management Areas 2B, 5C and 5D. The statewide archery deer season begins two weeks later on Sept. 29. Coincidentally, the early archery bear season also opens Sept. 15 in the same trio of WMUs.
But the primary pursuit is deer. And we do have an abundance of them. In fact, too many in certain areas.
Most recently about a dozen Salisbury Township residents voiced their concern at a commissioners...

Starting off the season with a win is exactly what Northampton would’ve wanted on Friday against Emmaus. Unfortunately for the Konkrete Kids, the Hornets wanted to start their season just as strong.
The match was exciting and had plenty of goals in it, and was a great, early test for both teams.
This five-goal thriller saw action right from the start. Northampton’s Jacob Auger started the scoring within the first five minutes.
But Emmaus would answer back to tie the game...
It didn’t take long for a shakeup in the poll, as Parkland jumps to the top after only two weeks.
Freedom proved it is for real this season, while Emmaus needed a miracle play to survive against Nazareth.

1. Parkland (2-0)
Last week’s rank: #3
Looks like Parkland is our version of Alabama.
The Pick: Parkland...
Both coaches came out of the season opener between Northampton and Emmaus believing that their teams let a lot of scoring opportunities go without taking advantage of them.
The downside for Northampton is that they were unable to convert one less opportunity than Emmaus did and fell to the Lady Hornets 1-0.
Just under 12-minutes into the game, Emmaus’ Grace Eisenhard had a shot from the left side of the goal but it rebounded off the post and carried directly in front of the...
