Girls soccer wins semi, faces Easton for title

Thursday, October 17, 2013 by TJ ENGLE in HS Sports

NAZARETH As Al Haddad stood on the turf at Andrew S. Leh Stadium Monday evening, a lot of things crossed his mind.

He knew he had a young squad with 23 underclassmen on a 26-player roster.

Seniors Emily Luchansky, Kayla Haberbosch and Shay Edwards are leaders and were part of the past two Lehigh Valley Conference titles.

Tuesday evening, with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Emmaus, Parkland earned a berth in Thursday night's LVC title game against Easton.

"We weren...

Parkland shows passing game in win over Nazareth

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

In his post-game speach to his team, head coach Jim Morgans seemed satisfied with the 47-6 road win over Nazareth, and he had one statement he made towards the Lehigh Valley Conference.

"At least now, teams around the league will know that we can throw the football too," Morgans said to his team.

Parkland (5-1 overall, 4-1 LVC) predominantly moves the football via the run. With athletic running backs in seniors Eli Redmond and Kareem Williams, no one blames the Trojans for...

Trojans take on Freedom

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Pres in HS Sports

The Parkland football team is known for its explosive rushing attack, but it was the Trojans' passing game that shone most brightly in a 47-6 win at Nazareth last Friday night.

Senior tailback Eli Redmond still found the end zone, but his three scores came from the arm of sophomore quarterback Devante Cross. The duo connected for touchdowns of 84 yards, 21 yards, and 75 yards. Cross finished the game throwing for a total of 233 yards and the three touchdowns.

"With the offense...

Peng takes second place in D-11 singles

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by ANDY STEINMETZ Special to the Press in HS Sports

Between Brittany Poje of East Stroudsburg South and Jenna Peng of Parkland, there is plenty of District 11 tournament know-how to go around. Poje was the event's runner-up as a freshman, and the defending champion from last year as a sophomore, while Peng was third as a sophomore and second as a junior one year ago.

With all of those accomplishments, this season saw the two talented student-athletes go undefeated through the season and the first four rounds of this year's Class AAA...

Strampel goal beats Northampton

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

Northampton and Parkland will likely be tired of each other before the soccer postseason comes to an end. A 1-0 Parkland win Monday night gave the two teams a split of their regular season games and it's very possible they'll meet again in the Lehigh Valley Conference playoffs next week and potentially in the District 11 Tournament down the road.

The two teams have begun to develop a rivalry, with Parkland (14-4, 12-2) taking all three meetings between them last season when the...

Hess earns silver at district tourney

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

In previous years the District 11 golf tournament was 27 holes. This year officials decided to decrease the length to a standard 18-hole round. However, one round wasn't enough to find a District 11 Class AAA champion.

After 18 holes over two days, Parkland's Chad Hess carded a final score of 75. Emmaus' Grant Schumaker also finished with a 75.

A sudden-death playoff was held between Hess and Schumaker to decide the champion, starting on the 12th hole at Blue Ridge Country Club...

Trojans knock off unbeaten Zephs

Saturday, October 5, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Kareem Williams has enjoyed a stellar season thus far for the Parkland Trojans football team. Williams has been an important part of the offense, and also has contributed on the defensive side of the ball.

After leading the team in rushing and touchdowns two weeks ago in a win at Liberty, Williams was at it again last Friday night, helping his team to its third straight win, 21-12 over Whitehall at Orefield Middle School stadium.

Williams rushed for 216 yards and three...

PHS wins seventh straight title

Saturday, October 5, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Coming into Monday's LVC Girls Tennis Championship Tournament at Parkland High School, the expectations were certainly high for Parkland.

And perhaps the Lady Trojans exceeded those expectations, judging by the team's play from top to bottom.

The Trojans, who entered the tournament with a perfect 11-0 regular season record in conference play, captured first-place finishes in each of the tournament's six brackets en route to yet another league championship. Since the 2007 season...

Lady Trojans fall to ACC

Saturday, October 5, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Parkland girls soccer team had only given up two goals through its first 12 games. However, the Trojans gave up one more than that in a single game as Central Catholic (10-0-1) found the back of the net three times on the way to a 3-1 win last Saturday morning at Emmaus High School in the Don Hunt Memorial Tournament.

The Vikettes scored two goals within two minutes of each other early in the first half and added the third two minutes before halftime. Central Catholic had a high...

Field hockey shuts out ACC

Saturday, October 5, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Seven different players tallied goals for the Parkland field hockey team, which bounced back from a 1-0 overtime loss to Allen, defeating Central Catholic 9-0 last Monday afternoon at Parkland High School.

The Trojans dominated the Vikettes from the opening whistle and poured in the goals. The young Trojans, which return only four starters from last year's team, have shown improvement throughout the season.

"Over the past couple of weeks our younger kids have really gelled with...
