Thursday, October 9, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

After 100 minutes of soccer, Parkland and Emmaus had to write off their rematch as a 0-0 draw. Parkland downed Emmaus 2-0 in the first meeting between the two teams earlier this season and was looking for the regular season sweep and more momentum heading into the final week of the regular season.

"I think Emmaus did a very good job of getting our girls to play their game and get us out of our game," said Parkland head coach Al Haddad. "I think the best 10 minutes was the first 10-minute overtime, because we were playing feed and when we play feed, we're a really good soccer team.

After picking up a tie against Emmaus earlier in the regular season, the Lady Trojans were looking to improve upon that and come away with a win in the final meeting of the two teams before the postseason. Unfortunately, that wasn't going to happen, as Emmaus came away with a 3-1 win over Parkland, dropping the Trojans to 9-5-2 overall and 7-4-2 in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference.

In what was considered a down year for Parkland girls tennis, the team was certainly able to flex its muscles once it got into the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference Tournament. While none of the singles players made it past the quarterfinals, Lady Trojan doubles teams finished first, second and fourth in doubles, good enough for the team to finish tied for third overall, with Liberty and Central Catholic. East Stroudsburg grabbed the top team spot, with Nazareth finishing second.

Last season, Parkland downed Emmaus in the Class AAA boys soccer finals to add another volume to the rivalry between the two schools in boys soccer.

Another chapter was written recently when Emmaus downed Parkland 1-0 in the first regular season meeting of the two division rivals in the newly minted Skyline Division of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference.

The win gave Emmaus (7-0-1, 6-0) a slight cushion over the Trojans (5-2, 4-2), who have now lost two straight, both by 1-0 scores.

In many ways, the Parkland and Emmaus tennis teams are very similar this season. Both were hit hard by graduation and both are trying to develop some talented young players and remain competitive this season. When the two teams matched up, the result was a four-and-a-half hour match that saw Parkland come away with a 4-3 win that was decided when the two teams had to put their top players on the court for a doubles match to decide the outcome.

South Parkland could be one of those teams that others need to keep an eye on in the Lehigh Valley Legion playoffs.

While the Trojans finished in the middle of the pack (9-9) and are the league's fifth seed coming into the postseason, they've shown that there are some reasons to fear them in the double-elimination tournament.

The regular season ended with a strong 5-1 win over Fullerton (10-8), with Zach Miller picking up a single and a double to drive in two runs in the win, which gave South Parkland a three-game winning streak heading into the playoffs.

After going undefeated through the regular season and the Lehigh Valley Legion playoffs last year, North Parkland repeated as the regular season champion, finishing 16-2 this season.

The Buffaloes enter the postseason with an 11-game winning streak. Their only two losses came early in the season, dropping a 3-1 decision to Southern Lehigh and a 2-1 game to Coplay.

Those two losses spotlighted what was a chink in the armor for North Parkland early in the season: its offense.
