Following a 2-0 win at Northern Lehigh Thursday, the Saucon Valley girls soccer team (3-0-0 Colonial League, 3-1-0 overall) harnessed their third consecutive conference victory with a 1-0 win over Catty (1-1-0 Colonial League, 2-1-0 overall) on Saturday.
In their first conference match of 2019, the Saucon Valley girls soccer team (1-1-0) slid past the Bangor Slaters (1-1-1) on Tuesday by a score of 1-0, securing their eighth straight victory over Bangor since 2012.
This week’s youth football action took place on a beautiful, sunny, warm day in Dimmick Park versus the visiting Pen Argyl Green Knights, and after a tough start to the season last week, the teams were looking to rebound.
The little Panthers kicked off their season on a beautiful August morning with perfect weather playing host to the visiting Southern Lehigh Spartans in what turned out to be a tough weekend overall for Saucon Valley football.
In their game against rival Palisades Saturday, the Saucon Valley girls basketball team started off slowly against the Lady Pirates and never really recovered, with ‘less pounce to the ounce’ throughout.
Saturday’s home openers for the Saucon Valley varsity and JV girls basketball teams didn’t exactly go the way the players and coaches wanted them to, but they were a start, and there is plenty of time left this season for the Panther girls to turn things around. The varsity team lost to Notre Dame-Green Pond 59-12. The JV team’s game was more competitive, but the Panthers still came up short, losing to the Crusaders 36-29. For the varsity team, Saucon’s high scorer was sophomore Ally Frace, who netted 6 points during the game. Notre Dame’s high scorers were Antonia Bates and Grace Hezel, each of whom landed 14 points for the Crusaders. In away play on Monday, the Lady Panthers lost to Palmerton, 64-30.
This week’s playoff contest was moved to Sunday morning and played on a surprisingly decent condition field at Dimmick Park in Hellertown. It featured the only remaining Panther team–the 120 Pound Varsity team–vs. the Bangor Slaters.
