With the Stellar Summer Basketball League behind them, the Whitehall boys will look to close out their offseason with a couple of more tournaments starting this week.

Dakota Schiffer made sure that Fullerton was going to get a seat at the Lehigh Valley Legion Baseball League playoff table.

Fullerton played host to Salisbury last Wednesday in a game that was to determine who would make the LVLBL playoffs. The winner would advance into the round of eight for a chance at the title.

Just like their neighbors to the south, the Coplay Legion baseball team needs a win, something positive to get back on track heading into the final two weeks of the season.

Right now they're in the midst of a nine-game losing streak, but manager Jim Murphy still believes they can turn things around and mount a playoff charge. As with Fullerton, close games have been their Achilles heel. Five of those losses have been by a run. That was the case again Monday night when they lost to Southern Lehigh, 4-3.

The Stellar Summer Basketball League went indoors Tuesday night as severe weather was forecasted for the Lehigh Valley, prompting the change.

While the thundershowers never materialized at least they hadn't by 8 p.m., the time Whitehall was slated to play Bethlehem Catholic the storm that actually emerged was the constant defensive pressure which came at the Hawks in waves, giving them fits on the offensive end the entire game.
