Girls putting together a good season

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

It was deuces wild for a pair of Kids as Northampton netted eight goals in last week’s girls soccer win over Stroudsburg.

Striking for those two goals were Alex Benedict and Becky Galicki. Head coach Michael Missmer said that both players stepped out of their usual roles to tally their first goals of the year, sparking the victory.

Benedict’s role has been primarily assisting other players on goals this season. Missmer said that Benedict is prone to going wide and looking for...

K-Kids get a win vs. ESN

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by TOM WENBORG in Sports

In the postgame huddle following the Northampton football team’s 53-8 win over East Stroudsburg North, head coach Kyle Haas’ tone seemed incongruous for addressing a team that has won three straight by an average score of 55-7.

“Sometimes when you hit a lull in your schedule, you tend to start to play down and you start to get into bad habits because you don’t have to do your responsibility to necessarily win,” he said. “But what happens is if you don’t do your job, when you play the...

Outdoors: PGC taking input on CWD

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by NICK HROMIAK in Sports

With an increasing number of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) cases occurring within certain areas of Pennsylvania’s deer herd, the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) is soliciting input from sportsmen on a response plan before more areas are affected.

To date the CWD has designated three CWD areas: Disease Management Area 3 (DMA3), encompasses WMU 2E and includes parts Jefferson and Indiana counties; DMA2, the largest of the affected areas, covers WMUs 4B, 4A, 5A and parts of 2G and 4D...

Behind Rimple, Kids blank Salisbury

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

Understanding body language is a valuable commodity in many aspects of life, and that ability to decipher physical intent is something Northampton goalkeeper Brady Rimple used in Saturday’s win over Salisbury.

Facing a penalty shot late in the second half against the Flacons, Rimple observed the shooter and immediately assessed the direction in which he was aiming.

“I saw him open his hips, so I know he was going to go this way,” said Rimple, demonstrating the position a right-...

Hozza shoots 73 for Moravian

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by The Press in Sports

The Moravian College football team held a lead through most of the first half and the majority of the fourth quarter until visiting McDaniel College scored its only touchdown of the game with 12 seconds remaining to earn a 13-10 victory over the host Greyhounds at Rocco Calvo Field Saturday in the Centennial Conference opener for each school.

The Hounds dropped their first home game of the season as the squad turned the ball over seven times and had a punt blocked while still having...

Pete’s Top-10: Eagles soar to top

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by PETER CAR in Sports

We have a new team at the top of the poll following Nazareth’s 35-33, thrilling win over Freedom last Friday night.

It was one of the best high school games the area has seen in a while and now the Blue Eagles have the task of upholding their status at the top by hosting Bethlehem Catholic Friday night. It could mark back-to-back weeks where Nazareth is involved in the top contest in the area and those things tend to happen when you have the best quarterback in the region with Anthony...

Harriers look to stay strong heading to postseason

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Northampton head cross country coach Dan Benner doesn’t want to be presumptuous about his team, but the Konkrete Kids already have made some strides.

“We are still early on in the season, but we have gotten off to a strong start,” said Benner. “We opened the season by hosting an invitational at Bicentennial Park. It was a very competitive meet again this season with 37 teams and over 1,000 athletes competing.”

At the invitational, five Kids earned medals on the day, and they...

Volleyball team beats Parkland for first time

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by SCOTT PAGEL in Sports

The Northampton volleyball team has been making a little history in recent matches.

Last week, the team defeated always-powerful Parkland in five sets, jumping out to a 2-0 lead with 25-20 and 25-23 wins in sets one and two.

The Trojans seemingly took back momentum, though, winning sets three and four by scores of 25-13 and 25-18, respectively. But the Kids battled back and won the fifth set 15-11. It was the first time in program history the volleyball team was able to knock...
