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...

Thursday, October 24, 2013 by KATIE McDONALD in HS Sports

Emmaus cross country coach Dan Wessner told sophomore runner Katie Bacher to shoot for the top five at the Lehigh Valley Conference cross championships last week at Bethlehem Municipal. But Bacher surprised even herself when she took second place in 20:05 behind winner Mikayla Stoudt of Parkland.

"I was shocked I got second," Bacher said. "It's pretty exciting. I was trying to stick with the front and see what happens. I know [Mikayla's] really good, so I was trying to keep my eye on...

Football falls to Whitehall

Thursday, October 24, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

During Emmaus's five-game winning streak all three units played well enough to do their job and capture the victory.

The same can't be said about last Friday night's game.

Whitehall (6-1 in LVC; 7-1 overall) defeated Emmaus (5-2; 5-3) on homecoming at Zephyr Stadium last Friday, 19-7, as the Zephyrs snapped the Hornet winning streak and severely damaged Emmaus' Lehigh Valley Conference title hopes in the process.

The Zephyrs took advantage of Emmaus' miscues and lack of...

Easton beats Emmaus in LVC boys soccer semi

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

Coming in as the top seed, it was easy to imagine Emmaus advancing to the Lehigh Valley Conference championship game. It became even easier to imagine when Emmaus grabbed a 2-0 lead over Easton and dominated the firsthalf of its semifinal meeting with the Red Rovers, but that's where the vision became a little blurry.

Easton came out rejuvenated in the second half and worked its way back to a 2-2 tie. The Rovers eventually snuck away with a 3-2 win after a controversial goal in the...
