Kids win EPC golf title

Thursday, October 4, 2018 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

When Northampton’s golf team suffered its only loss this season, falling to Emmaus by just a few points in a showdown for the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference regular season title, Kids head coach Brian Davies immediately looked ahead.

Davies knew that when his team went down to its five-player tournament lineup in the EPC Championship, the Hornets’ depth advantage would be neutralized.

Davies was right.

Pete’s Top-10: Showdown weekend in the Valley

Thursday, October 4, 2018 by PETER CAR in Sports

Last week’s results were par for the course, as none of the top-10 teams suffered a loss, but that could change this week as Freedom, Easton, Northwestern and Stroudsburg all face threats looking to knock them off.

The Patriots and Rovers are this week’s marquee showdown, while the back end of the poll features Stroudsburg taking on Northampton in the biggest home game the K-Kids have had in close to 10 years.

It’s coming down to crunchtime for area teams, so let’s see which teams are priming themselves for the postseason and which teams are actually pretenders.

Konkrete Kids prep for huge game vs. Mounties

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

On paper, it arguably is Northampton’s biggest game since it last ventured into the district playoffs in 2008.

The Konkrete Kids (5-1) will host Stroudsburg (5-1) Friday night on a collision course for the Easter Penn Conference (EPC) North title.

Since they lost their opening games, both teams have reeled off impressive, five-game winning streaks.

The Kids took a major step toward cementing their respectability in the EPC and beyond they edged East Stroudsburg South, 21-14, last week.

Boys priming for postseason runs

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Over their next five games, Northampton’s boys’ soccer team may have a good indication on how they will fare in the postseason.

The Konkrete Kids lost a heart-wrenching, 2-1 double-overtime decision to Emmaus Monday night that left them with an overall 7-2-3 mark. Their other loss also was to Emmaus to begin the season.

Now, the Kids face Allentown Central Catholic, Parkland, and Whitehall along with nonleague foe Southern Lehigh over the next two weeks, one that certainly will be a primer for the postseason.

Girls topple Emmaus

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 by TJ WENBORG in Sports

On a muggy Monday evening, the 8-2-1 Emmaus Green Hornets descended on Northampton to take on a Konkrete Kids’ girls varsity soccer team bent on revenge. Emmaus had defeated the Kids 1-0 in the season opener on September 1st. The Kids entered the game riding a season high 3-game winning streak, having beaten Becahi, Allen, and East Stroudsburg North by a combined 26-0.
