Emmaus softball reaches EPC final

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

Maybe it’s Tina The Turtle, or maybe it’s something else. Tina, a stuffed turtle who can generally be found watching Emmaus softball games from atop the water dispenser, has become a good luck charm for Emmaus softball. As proud as Tina may be of her role, the players are using more than luck to produce wins, as they’ve advanced to the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference title game with wins over Stroudsburg and Liberty.

EPC softball playoffs set

Friday, May 12, 2017 by SCOTT PAGEL in Sports

The East Penn Conference softball playoffs will look to beat the rain and get under way Friday afternoon.

By virtue of a perfect mark, the Parkland Trojans are this year’s number-one seed. They will face off against Northampton, which sneaks in as the number-eight seed. The two, of course, are very familiar Skyline Division opponents.

Liberty will take the second seed after finishing 14-2 in the EPC. They will take on seven-seed Whitehall, which is coming off a 9-8 shootout loss to Easton on Thursday afternoon in a game that featured seeding implications.

Despite some possible weather woes, April is the typical month when races across the Lehigh Valley and neighboring area tend to take shape. This spring has proved once again to be a bearing one with the possibilities of productive summer and fall seasons ahead.

Emmaus recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of its 4-mile classic April 9. A total of 361 runners participated in ideal conditions in the annual race that runs through the town. Proceeds from the race benefitted the Ed Thompson/ Nicole Reinhart Memorial Scholarship fund.

After a successful first-year in college, Emmaus High School gradaute Trey Hinkle wanted to make a change. The 2015 graduate suited up for Centenary University baseball in his first college season. And he immediately made an impact at the Hackettstown, NJ, school.

He was named to the ECAC Division III South Region First-Team and was the D3baseball.com Mid-Atlantic Region Rookie of the Year.

Corpora scores 100th goal in loss

As much as they tried, the Hornets could never take momentum back from Parkland and hold onto it during Monday’s boys lacrosse game. If they could have just gotten that one go-ahead goal, it might have been a different outcome.

Emmaus tied Monday night’s boys lacrosse game five times after the Trojans scored the opening goal. But Parkland had an answer all five times before pulling away late for a 12-9 win over the Hornets at Memorial Field.

Trojans get revenge

Thursday, May 11, 2017 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Offense was the focal point of their first matchup when Emmaus and Parkland combined to score 25 goals in the Hornets’ one-goal victory.

Offense was once again on full display on Monday, at least for one of those teams.

Parkland dominated from the opening whistle to avenge last month’s 13-12 defeat to their rivals. The Trojans (9-1 in EPC, 14-4 overall) scored eight goals in the first 25 minutes, took a 9-0 lead early in the second half, and closed out a 14-2 victory over Emmaus (8-2 , 13-5) at Parkland High School.
