In stark contrast to the rest of the season, last week’s slate of games kicked off to a very soggy start. That, however, did not deter the players or fans from showing up and playing hard or cheering on the Panthers in their last week of regular season games.
Playing on the road and under the lights Tuesday night, the Saucon Valley girls soccer team (8-4 Colonial League) could not get past the Pirates of Palisades (7-5 Colonial League) in a hard-fought duel between composed defenses and imposing midfields.
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.
As expected it was a tight game between the Saucon Valley Panthers and the Palisades Pirates. The teams fought as they were competing for the Colonial League championship and more. Saucon Valley battled for a Colonial League three-peat and to keep the 2016 trophy all to themselves. In addition, the Panthers were determined to qualify for a spot in the upcoming PIAA 4A District XI tournament. Palisades looked to get a share of the Colonial League title as well as to secure a top spot in the PIAA 3A tourney. It ended up being a great night for Panther Nation.
