Hornets hang on to beat Parkland

Thursday, November 1, 2018 by STEVE ALTHOUSE in Sports

The Emmaus High School Marching Band was performing the 1982 Michael Jackson classic “Thriller” as the Parkland Trojans were on what proved to be their final offensive drive last Friday night. It was an apt musical selection, as this year’s edition of the Battle of Cedar Crest Boulevard was certainly a thriller.

Down four points with two minutes remaining, Trojan quarterback Tanner Lewis had his team on the move for the go-ahead and possible winning touchdown.

Hornets’ gamble pays off

Last Friday night, the Emmaus football team became the Lehigh Valley’s pride and poise boys.

Trailing by seven points with seconds left and looking at a fourth and seven from the Nazareth 8-yard line, Emmaus needed a touchdown and had to keep cool.

The offense sent three wide receivers to the right and quarterback Ethan Parvel then went to his right on a designed rollout.
