Liberty is loaded with playmakers

Thursday, September 19, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

After a dominating 48-7 victory last Friday night against Northampton, Parkland looks to continue the high level of play heading into a showdown at Liberty on Friday.

The Trojans lit up the scoreboard and played well on both sides of the ball for their two wins, both at home, but are looking for consistency after being shutout two weeks ago at Easton.

"This will be a true test to see if we're going in the right direction," said head coach Jim Morgans. "Defensively we've played...

Trojans rout Kids

Thursday, September 19, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Earlier in the week head coach Jim Morgans was looking for more consistency for his Trojans football team. After a season-opening 50-8 drubbing of Delaware Valley, Parkland was shutout at Easton the following Friday in a game that the Red Rovers seemed to want a little more.

But last Friday night, back at the friendly confines of Orefield Middle School Stadium, the Trojans were dominant on both sides of the ball in a 48-7 win over Northampton for their first conference victory.


Martinez scores twice in win over Whitehall

Thursday, September 12, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Last season the Parkland boys soccer team beat every Lehigh Valley Conference opponent that was put in front of it, finishing the regular season undefeated in the LVC. Last Saturday, the Trojans were put in unfamiliar territory, losing to Northampton 4-3 for their first league loss since 2011.

It didn't take long, however, for Parkland to bounce back, as junior forward Diego Martinez tallied two goals and an assist, leading the Trojans to a 5-0 win over Whitehall last Monday night at...

Royer scores goal in final minutes to help team win

Thursday, September 12, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

It took nearly 58 minutes, but the Parkland field hockey team came through when it mattered most.

Locked in a scoreless matchup with Whitehall (1-4 overall; 0-3 in LVC) on Tuesday evening at Parkland High School, overtime seemed destined unless something changed in game's final moments.

That's when freshman forward Grace Royer came through with the game's only goal. Following a cross by junior Brooke Sherwin, Royer cleaned up a loose ball in front of Whitehall's goal with a...

Haberbosch nets late game-winner

Thursday, September 12, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Parkland girls soccer team was looking for some scoring. The Trojans desperately wanted a goal. After a 0-0 draw at Nazareth on Tuesday, the first Lehigh Valley Conference home game was close to ending the same way.

With under three minutes to go in the second and final overtime, Rachel Medler ripped a shot from just outside the 18 that was blocked Northampton goalkeeper. Trojan senior Kayla Haberbosch charged the net and put away the winner to give Parkland (2-0-1) its first...

Turnovers, fake punt hurt PHS in 24-0 loss

Thursday, September 12, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

One week after a dominating effort in shutting down Delaware Valley in their opening game, the Parkland football team was on the other end of the spectrum. Two turnovers and a slow night offensively doomed the Trojans in a 24-0 loss to Easton last Friday night at Cottingham stadium.

The offensive attack that put up 50 points just one week prior had a hard time finding any kind of rhythm.

The Red Rovers held Parkland to just 58 yards of total offense. The Trojans did not account...

PHS vs. Easton is early-season showdown

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Parkland played nearly flawless football last Friday night in a season-opening 50-8 win against Delaware Valley. But head coach Jim Morgans still sees some areas for improvement heading into the showdown with Lehigh Valley Conference power Easton this Friday night at Cottingham Stadium.

"The kids are aware, they know," said Morgans. "I mean we had an extra-point blocked, and if that happens against Easton it's going to cost you. And then we had to blow a timeout because we were going...
