The Emmaus girls soccer team seemed to be rolling with wins over Whitehall and Nazareth followed by a 2-2 tie against Central Catholic that saw the Hornets fall behind early and then rally to tie the Vikettes. After that came a 9-0 win against East Stroudsburg North and a 1-0 nonleauge loss at Wilson West Lawn against a tough Owls team.

Sone Ntoh expected to be part of a backfield tandem at Emmaus this season. The Hornet coaching staff and fans expected that too. But with an injury to his running mate, Ntoh moved into a lead role as the feature back and has been Emmaus’ workhorse for the past three games.

Saturday the junior tied his career high with four touchdowns in a 63-13 win over Pocono Mountain West. He carried the ball just nine times for 136 yards.
