Pete's Top-10 Parkland moves to the top

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by PETER CAR in HS Sports

So, what did we learn from week one of football? Well, one thing for sure is that there are a lot of bad teams out there. On the bright side, Dieruff has improved and that should give fans on the East Side a feel-good story.

Whitehall came away with the most surprising win last week, while Liberty kicked off the John Truby era with a big win.

Major showdowns across the board in the LVC and Colonial League this week make for an interesting poll.

1. Parkland (1-0)


Becahi comes to Emmaus this Friday

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

On the schedule it shows that the Emmaus Green Hornets will host Bethlehem Catholic on Friday with a 7pm kickoff.

However, according to head coach Randy Cuthbert, the Green Hornets will be competing against themselves.

"This game is more about us than it is Bethlehem Catholic," Cuthbert admitted in a phone interview Monday night. "The game itself is going to be a challenge as Becahi is a good team, but we need to better ourselves in order to win."

This is the first...

Emmaus lets 15-point lead slip away in fourth quarter

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

When the Hornets had all their starters on the field and were playing mistake-free football, they were clearly as good, if not better than Pennridge in a very evenly-matched season opener.

But when they committed penalties or had players leave the field with cramps, it was just enough to tip the scales toward the Rams.

After building a 15-point lead in the first half and holding onto that margin into the fourth quarter, Emmaus saw it's entire lead slip away over the final 6:34...

Lady Hornet tennis gets off to a good start

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

After rain washed out its opening match against Easton, the Emmaus tennis team had to wait a few extra days to get the season under way. But now that things have started, the Hornets are on a roll.

They've opened the season with three conference wins, including one over Northampton, which not only beat Emmaus in the regular season last year, but knocked the Lady Hornets out of the District 11 Tournament.

Emmaus has started its season with wins over Liberty (6-1), Freedom (5-2)...

Friday night the Pennridge football team will be stepping on to the football field in Perkasie.

Both of those events have happened often in the last few years when Randy Cuthbert was the Rams' head coach. It will be a bit different this Friday as Cuthbert will be taking the field as head coach of the Emmaus football.

"It is going to be unusual for sure," said Cuthbert. "I left for personal...

Evans is evolving into a leader

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

With half of her college field hockey career still in front of her, Ally Evans has already accomplished more than most players could hope for in a four-year collegiate career.

The 2011 Emmaus graduate helped her team to a national title last year while making an All Ivy League team for the second straight year at Princeton University.

The junior striker heads into her third season hoping to continue the success she's enjoyed over her first two years.

"I'm definitely...
