When the Parkland and Emmaus boys soccer teams met in just the second game of the 2019 regular seasonr, the Trojans took control with the game’s opening goal only to see the Green Hornets score two unanswered, including the game-winner in overtime.
After that game, Trojan head coach Patrick Birns said that the two teams would see each other again, maybe more than once.
Statement wins don’t often come in September, but the victory Parkland earned last weekend was one.
Trailing by double-digits in the fourth quarter, the Parkland football team scored 14 unanswered points to secure an important come-from-behind 21-17 win over previously undefeated Nazareth last Friday night in Eastern Pennsylvania Conference South Division action at Parkland School District Stadium.
Coming off its best win of the 2019 regular season, the Parkland football team will hit the road to play in a rivalry game at Whitehall on Friday night in Eastern Pennsylvania Conference South Division action.
The Trojans (4-2 overall, 3-2 EPC South) battled back from down double-digits to take down Nazareth (5-1, 4-1) last Friday.
“It was a complete team win and we played the full 48 minutes,” said head coach Tim Moncman on last weekend’s win. “I was proud of the way we battled, but we can’t be satisfied. We have to know we’re in for a battle the rest of the way.”
The Parkland girls volleyball team had its most challenging portion of the 2019 regular season schedule this past week. Following an Eastern Pennsylvania Conference match at East Stroudsburg North, a 3-0 victory, the Trojans were downed in five sets to perennial District 11 power Bethlehem Catholic, and then defeated Allen in straight sets.
The Parkland football team got some confidence and momentum back with a 35-7 win last Friday night at Liberty. The victory halted a two-game slide. It may have come at just the right time as the Trojans (3-2 overall, 2-2 EPC South) welcome undefeated Nazareth (5-0, 4-0) Friday night at Parkland School District Stadium in an Eastern Pennsylvania Conference South Division showdown.
The win was a welcoming sign to the players and coaches and all around the program.
The Parkland girls soccer team has had its tight games and then its had some easier ones during the 2019 season so far.
But the common theme has been that the Trojans (11-0 overall, 10-0 EPC) have still come out on top over any opponent that has been put in front of them on their schedule thus far.
The Parkland football team was reeling, both on the field and off. It was facing a two-game losing streak and was forced to deal with some injuries to key players. It needed some positive energy to hit the program.
Some came last weekend.
With the score tied 7-7, the Trojans scored the next 28 points to win 35-7 over Liberty in an Eastern Pennsylvania Conference South Division game last Friday night at Bethlehem Area School District Stadium.
The Parkland girls volleyball team has been on a roll of late, and that momentum continued last Wednesday night as the Trojans took down Whitehall in straight sets by scores of 25-9, 25-8 and 25-14 in Eastern Pennsylvania Conference action at Parkland High School.
The victory, coupled with wins over Stroudsburg and East Stroudsburg North less than a week after, Parkland (12-5-1 overall, 6-3 EPC) has won four conference matches in-a-row, all in straight sets.
The Parkland football team is looking to rebound from just it’s third mercy-rule loss in school history.
The Trojans (2-2 overall, 1-2 EPC) have lost two straight games, both against Bethlehem-area teams. And another Christmas City team, Liberty, awaits this Friday night as Parkland heads to Bethlehem Area School District Stadium for the second week in a row.
