Boys shut out Bears, 3-0

Friday, November 1, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Since the final game of the regular season, the Parkland boys' soccer team had not allowed a postseason goal in three matches heading into the district semifinal matchup against Pleasant Valley.

And while the postseason games continue to increase in meaningfulness, the Trojans put together another standout effort defensively against the Bears.

In Tuesday night's District 11 3A boys soccer semifinals at Emmaus High School, the No. 2 seeded Trojans used a 3-0 victory over the No...

Season finale holds playoff implications

Friday, November 1, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Having already clinched a spot in the District 2-4-11 Subregional playoff bracket, Parkland's week 10 game is still crucial as a win guarantees at least share of the Lehigh Valley Conference title.

The fact that it is against archrival Emmaus makes it even bigger.

The Trojans (7-1 in LVC, 8-1 overall) host the Green Hornets (6-2, 6-3) Friday at Parkland Football Stadium at 7 p.m. in a regular season finale that has a lot riding on it for both teams.

At stake for the...

Parkland girls win District 11 team title; Stoudt places second

Friday, November 1, 2013 by PATRICK MATSINKO in HS Sports

Competition has driven Parkland's Mikayla Stoudt all year.

That is, when she's had competition.

Stoudt has been in a league of her own throughout much of the season, finishing first in each of the Trojans' five conference quad meets and claiming the Lehigh Valley Conference championship meet after taking second a year ago.

That success earned her Lehigh Valley Conference MVP, no small feat for a sophomore.

Those achievements led to high expectations at last week's...

PHS boys use depth to earn second-place finish

Friday, November 1, 2013 by PATRICK MATSINKO in HS Sports

A quick glance at the podium of this year's District 11 Class AAA boys cross country meet may have given some people a sense of déjà vu.

For the second consecutive year, Easton's Colin Abert took the win, blitzing the Bethlehem Golf Club course with an astonishing time of 15 minutes, 43 seconds, breaking his own course record set a week earlier at the LVC championships by 21 seconds

Abert finished 49 seconds in front of Freedom junior Ben Ziegler, who led a 2, 5, 8, 9, 13...

Field hockey falls to Nazareth in District 11 playoffs

Friday, November 1, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Rest is not always the best ingredient for success. The Parkland field hockey team found that out last Saturday morning at Parkland high school.

It was nine days since the Trojans last played in the Lehigh Valley Conference finals against Emmaus on Thursday, October 17, and it showed with some early rust.

What also didn't help was being hit with the injury bug and inexperience.

"All season long we've been dealing with injuries," said head coach Michelle Steele. "Today I...

Parkland wins seventh straight game

Friday, November 1, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Parkland's Devante Cross rushed for 115 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries and threw for 123 yards and one touchdown going 6-for-10 passing last week.

The sophomore only played two and half quarters.

Cross and the rest of the Trojans offense had a quick night getting out to a 35-0 lead in the third quarter that allowed Parkland (7-1 in LVC, 8-1 overall) to defeat Allentown Central Catholic (1-7, 2-7) by a final score of 35-6 at J. Birney Crum Stadium last Saturday night...

Emmaus pulls off upset in district semifinal

Friday, November 1, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Parkland volleyball team has racked up its fair share of wins over the last four seasons. Dating back to 2010, the Trojans had a 68-match-play winning streak stretching from the 2010 season to the last match of 2012, which was the state final.

Coming into 2013, Parkland (19-1) was riding a 19-match winning streak. But that all came to an abrupt end last Tuesday night at Whitehall high school.

Emmaus (18-2) played near flawless volleyball and attacked the Trojans every game...

Morgans faces familiar foe in Central Catholic

Thursday, October 24, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

A week after a 49-6 homecoming win over Bethlehem Catholic, the Parkland football team will play in another homecoming game of sorts.

Head coach Jim Morgans will face a very familiar opponent, one he led for a large portion of his life. Morgans coached and taught at Central Catholic for 29 years.

He is a graduate of the high school, playing for the Vikings during his high school career.

There will be different emotions going through the coach's head, but it is just...

For the seniors on the Parkland volleyball team, their high school career has involved nothing but winning. The Lady Trojans grabbed their fourth straight Lehigh Valley Conference Championship with a 3-1 win over Emmaus. The one lost game was the only set that Parkland has lost since the start of the season.

The Hornets came out swinging, but got no closer than 7-4 in the first set. From there, Parkland won four straight points to take a commanding lead.

The two teams battled...

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

For the third straight season, the Parkland girls tennis team rambled its way through the District 11 Tournament to come out on top in the team championships. This year's victory came over Emmaus by a 4-0 score, with one match winding up tied after two sets.

Parkland won every set with the exception of the second set in the number one doubles match teaming Rachel Wong and Colleen Wylie against Emmaus' Katherine Guido and Elise Van Ormer. Parkland grabbed the opening set 6-3, but...
