Boys eyeing District 11 playoff berth

Thursday, October 4, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Whitehall’s boys’ soccer season certainly has been an adventurous one.

Throughout the season, the Zephyrs have hovered around the .500 mark and still have a district playoff berth within their sights.

Ironically, they have a 6-6-1 mark to begin play this week with five games remaining in the regular season.

The Zephyrs suffered a tough, 1-0 loss at Nazareth Monday night and had Northampton Wednesday and Allentown Central Catholic Friday to round out a challenging, and important week.

Tennis falls short of team districts

Thursday, October 4, 2018 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

Whitehall’s bid for a girls team tennis district playoff berth took a hit when they lost a tough match to Emmaus last week, a team that they were jockeying with for one of the final tournament spots.

With the 2-5 loss to the host Green Hornets, they enter the last week of regular season competition with a 6-7 record. While they still have a match remaining with Nazareth (12-2), they’ll now turn their attention to the District XI AAA Girls Singles Tournament which got underway Monday at Lehigh University.

Girls still in a good spot

Thursday, October 4, 2018 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

Whitehall has relied on a stingy back line and an opportunistic offense to position themselves as the top girls soccer team in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference so far this season, even after suffering their first loss of the season Monday to Nazareth, 1-0.

Before that, after Emmaus dealt Parkland their first league loss in 70 matches, Whitehall made sure the Trojans weren’t going to reel off another 70, by defeating them 3-1 when the two met a few weeks ago.

Pete’s Top-10: Showdown weekend in the Valley

Thursday, October 4, 2018 by PETER CAR in Sports

Last week’s results were par for the course, as none of the top-10 teams suffered a loss, but that could change this week as Freedom, Easton, Northwestern and Stroudsburg all face threats looking to knock them off.

The Patriots and Rovers are this week’s marquee showdown, while the back end of the poll features Stroudsburg taking on Northampton in the biggest home game the K-Kids have had in close to 10 years.

It’s coming down to crunchtime for area teams, so let’s see which teams are priming themselves for the postseason and which teams are actually pretenders.
