EHS volleyball falls in LVC finals

Thursday, October 24, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

Emmaus picked up a moral victory against Parkland, but it didn't lead the Hornets to a real victory over their rivals in last week's Lehigh Valley Conference volleyball finals.

The moral victory came in the third set when the Hornets handed Parkland their first lost set of the season. Unfortunately, Parkland won three other sets to take a 3-1 victory over Emmaus and win its fourth straight LVC Championship.

The Hornets came out swinging, but got no closer than 7-4 in the first...

"It was definitely a lot easier...

Emmaus travels to Whitehall for statement game

Thursday, October 17, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

In recent years Emmaus football has been known for its staunch defense while the offense has been more of a finesse unit.

Head coach Randy Cuthbert wants to make this a physical team on both sides of the ball.

"You have to be able to stop the run and you have to be able to run the ball," he said Monday night. "We are working on it right now and our guys are getting better. They are improving and it showed against Liberty. I think they are starting to buy into it."


Girls soccer sneaks into league playoffs

Thursday, October 17, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

After a 2-1 loss to Central Catholic last week, the only way Emmaus was going to make the conference playoffs was if Northampton downed Nazareth that same night. Nazareth was heavily favored and figured to collect the win that would assure them of a playoff spot, but Northampton downed Nazareth 2-0 and Emmaus rebounded to beat Dieruff to put the Lady Hornets in and the Lady Eagles out of the LVC playoffs.

The gift from Northampton was something that coach Rob Rooney simply didn't see...
