Trojans bounce back, beat Liberty

Friday, September 27, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

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 win snaps a two-game skid...

PHS girls soccer beats Whitehall

Friday, September 27, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

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.

In one of its latest games, Parkland was taken to the brink, scoring the first three goals and then allowing two before holding on to defeat Whitehall 3-2 last Monday, Sept. 16, in...

Parkland girls tennis focuses on postseason

Friday, September 27, 2019 by STEPHEN ALTHOUSE in Sports

The 2019 Parkland girls tennis team has been awesome. Going into their Sept. 21 match with Moravian Academy, the Lady Trojans were 15-0 and virtually unstoppable.

But perfection is a tough business and proved unattainable when Moravian Academy dealt Parkland its first lost of the season in 4-3 thriller.

“It was one of the closest matches I’ve ever seen,” said Parkland head coach Michael Hingston.

It was also a part of a strategy Hingston devised to have the Lady Trojans...

Eagles present a challenge

Friday, September 27, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

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.

“We played a...

PHS golfers prepare for league tournament

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

With the regular season coming to a close this week, the Parkland golf team now shifts its focus to the postseason. Despite not being pegged as one of the favorites heading into Monday’s East Penn Conference Tournament, Trojan head coach Ryan Kilpatrick believes this unit is capable of having success next Monday at Olde Homestead Golf Course.

“Our goal will obviously be to win the tournament, but we understand that there are some really good teams like Emmaus, Nazareth and Liberty,”...

Boys soccer falls to Liberty

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

Following a tough overtime defeat at rival Emmaus, the Parkland boys soccer team started getting on a roll, winning its next two games.

Then they ran into the East Penn Conference’s other undefeated team. And just like against the Green Hornets, the Trojans fell just short, dropping a game to Liberty 1-0 last Wednesday evening in EPC action at Parkland High School.

The Hurricanes (7-0, 7-0) scored the lone goal on a penalty shot from Chris Schray. That was all they would need...

BY CJ Hemerly

The Parkland field hockey team featured four different goal scorers and broke two different second-half ties to hold onto a 4-3 victory over Liberty last Tuesday evening at Bethlehem Area School District Stadium in Eastern Pennsylvania Conference action.

In a matchup of two of the top teams in the EPC, the Trojans (8-0-1 overall, 7-0-1 EPC) came out on top over the Hurricanes (6-3, 5-3) for the first time in fifth-year head coach Lizzy Millen’s tenure at the helm...

Football team returns to BASD Friday

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

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.

Parkland and Liberty have a lot in common before their matchup Friday night. Both teams are 2-2 overall and each were...

Hawks hand Trojans devestating loss

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 by STEPHEN ALTHOUSE in Sports

After a tepid first quarter, the Bethlehem Catholic Golden Hawks (3-1, 2-2) pounced on, and all over, the Parkland Trojans (2-2, 1-2) in a 44-7 mercy-rule rout at BASD Stadium. The defeat raised many questions for the Trojans.

Four games into the season, the Trojans are a .500 team and heading in the wrong direction.

The way it went last Saturday night was most certainly the wrong way. The Trojans were outplayed on both the offensive and defensive lines of scrimmage. Their...
