Thursday, September 12, 2019 by TOM WENBORG in Sports

The Northampton field hockey team bounced back from an opening day 3-1 loss to Liberty by pounding East Stroudsburg North 9-0 last Thursday and beating Stroudsburg 3-1 on Saturday.

The Mountaineers entered the season coming off a 2018 campaign that saw them reach the District XI 3A semifinals. In the young 2019 season, they had outscored their first three EPC opponents by a combined 25-0.

Junior forward Bri Sell opened the scoring just 2:45 into the game when she came out of a...

The 2019-2020 Cement Belt challenge kicked off with the Whitehall boys soccer team drawing first blood on Northampton’s home field with a 4-2 victory.

A few hours later, the Konkrete Kids’ girls soccer team evened the standings by scoring a 2-0 win on the Zephyrs’ home turf.

Senior tri-captain Abbi Czarnecki got Northampton on the board in the first 5 minutes of the game when she took a pass from Alex Benedict and slotted the ball under the goalie’s arms.

“That’s the...

Boys soccer tops Central

Thursday, September 12, 2019 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

The Northampton boys soccer team capitalized late in the firs half, and then relied on some late saves in the second half to defeat Allentown Central Catholic on Monday for their first win of the season.

The game’s lone goal came with 49 seconds remaining in the opening half. It was the result of a nifty header by Joseph Tiwold as he notched his first goal of the season.

The ball, launched off the foot of Cole Clapp, arced toward the box where Joseph played it in midair, his...

Outdoors: Cooler water should mean better fishing

Thursday, September 12, 2019 by NICK HROMIAK in Sports

Friday’s severely dropping temperatures could be a hint that fall is on the way. As such, fresh water fish traditionally go on the feed as cooler water temps signal the feeding frenzy, says our local fishing reporters.

Willie, from Willie’s Bait & Tackle in Cementon, reports Leaser Lake is the hot spot with customers picking up muskies on jumbo minnows while bass anglers are nailing largemouths on large shiners. As for Lehigh River, Willie said it’s dead of late although one avid...

Kids look to keep rolling at PV Friday

Thursday, September 5, 2019 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

At Pleasant Valley Friday night, Northampton’s football team will encounter its second stage of its five-game East Penn Conference (EPC) North Division tour, one that can perhaps help them lock up the EPC North title.

But based on the unpredictability of the teams through the first two weeks of the season, it is hard for the K-Kids to get a good read.

“It’s is hard to tell what’s ahead of us,” said Kids’ head coach Kyle Haas of his team who has a 1-1 record after their 49-6...

Boys fall to Emmaus

Thursday, September 5, 2019 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

First year coach Ryan Brazuk would have loved to have his team knock off perennial power Emmaus in the season opener, but short of that, he wanted his team to play a game that they could be proud of at the end of the game.

Northampton lost to Emmaus 4-0, but Brazuk was encouraged by his team’s effort and left the field feeling proud of how his team played against one of the better teams in the Lehigh Valley.

The first 40 minutes of the game wound up scoreless, but Emmaus (2-0...
