Girls soccer stays perfect

Friday, October 13, 2017 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

Parkland spent much of the first half of its game against Northwestern attacking the Tigers goal, but came away empty thanks to some acrobatics by goalkeeper McKenna Amey. In the end though, the Trojans kept their undefeated record intact with a 3-0 win over Northwestern in Monday’s non-conference game.

“The trouble was the speed in which they played balls forward and they have some nice players and they controlled it for one or two passes,” said Parkland head coach Al Haddad. “They...

Football Roundup: Worth leads Trojans past Hawks

Thursday, October 12, 2017 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

Just one team remains unbeaten in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference after the seventh Friday night of the 2017 high school football season. Several games on this week’s card have District 11 Class 6A playoff implications. Here’s a look at some of Friday’s action.

Bethlehem Catholic-Parkland

The Trojans won a battle of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference’s last two unbeaten teams with a 38-24 win over the Hawks.

Schutter shines in win over Emmaus

Thursday, October 5, 2017 by TODD KRESS in Sports

For 40 minutes Monday evening, Parkland was shut out against rival Emmaus. One could even argue the host Hornets edged the Trojans in possession and key chances on goal in the first half.

The final 40 minutes was a completely different story. And Parkland got a boost from a familiar source.

Senior forward Brooke Schutter scored two goals in the second half and assisted on another, guiding Parkland (13-0 overall; 12-0 in EPC) to its 3-1 victory over Emmaus (8-5-1, 8-3-1) on...

With the parity that exists in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference South Division in 2017, every win is a big one.

After five mostly convincing wins to open the season, the Parkland football team came from behind for the first time this year, and held on for a 31-21 win last Friday night at Whitehall High School.

This week the Trojans host an undefeated Bethlehem Catholic in a battle between the last two unbeaten teams in the EPC.

Trojans avenge loss

Thursday, October 5, 2017 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

When the Emmaus and Parkland girls volleyball teams last took the court against each other two weeks ago, the Green Hornets accomplished a feat that not only was long coming for them, but also every other team in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference and District 11.

Emmaus swept the Trojans in straight sets, ending a 120-match win streak for Parkland, dating back to 2009.

But beating a team twice in the same season, let alone in a two-week span is tough, and Parkland had even...

Nimeh earns place at D-11 golf tourney

Thursday, October 5, 2017 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

Three Parkland golfers competed in Monday’s District 11 qualifier at Olde Homestead Golf Course.

The Trojans’ Jake Nimeh and Ava Sweeney earned a spot in next Monday’s district championship tournament at Lehigh Country Club.

Nimeh shot 84 to tie for 10th-place in the 39-player boys field. Sweeney shot 100 for second place in the girls qualifier, which had six participants.

Parkland’s Trevor Grimm also played in the event, shooting 101 for 35th place in the boys field....

Boys soccer shuts down Hornets

Thursday, October 5, 2017 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

The Parkland boys soccer team played perhaps its best game of the season against rival Emmaus, beating the Hornets 3-0 to take both regular season games against the division foe.

As it turned out, the game went much like the first meeting between the two teams, with Parkland getting an early goal to make things tough on Emmaus. The Parkland defense was so stifling that it didn’t allow a shot on goal in the game.

“Now that I’m thinking about it, I don’t think that they did,”...

Parkland didn’t get off to the best start last Friday night against Whitehall. But the way the Trojan football team finished gave the rest of the Lehigh Valley a glimpse as to how difficult they might be to knock off.

Tied at 21-21 in the fourth quarter, Parkland scored the final 10 points to hand the Zephyrs a 31-21 loss on Friday night at Whitehall High School. The Trojans (6-0) rallied from two early one-touchdown deficits in the first half.

The win awarded Parkland with the...

Parkland remained one of two undefeated teams in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference with a win over Whitehall Friday night. The other EPC unbeaten, Bethlehem Catholic, plays a Saturday evening game.

Palisades is still the only Colonial League team without a loss after rolling to a win over Salisbury.

Here’s a look at some of Friday night’s action. For more see this week’s Lehigh Valley Press newspapers.

Parkland beats Pleasant Valley, 3-1

Thursday, September 28, 2017 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

While both Parkland and Pleasant Valley have strong defenses, the Trojans have some offense to go with it.

The Bears could use a little more offense, so they were relying on their defense when they came into Parkland for a Saturday afternoon game.

Parkland gave upits first goal to an EPC opponent this season, but escaped with a 3-1 win over Pleasant Valley in stifling heat.

Bears coach Chris Pachuta came in with a defensive-minded game plan that included trying to get a...
