YORK – Mike Englert went toe to toe with the best field of high school golfers Pennsylvania has to offer. For a while, he was beating all of them.

The Palmerton senior held the outright tournament lead for several holes during the second and final round of the PIAA Golf Championships, held Monday and Tuesday at Heritage Hills Resort in York before finishing sixth and earning a state medal. He shot a first-round 69 on Monday and a second-round 78 Tuesday for a total of 147.

ALLENTOWN - Salisbury started fast during Tuesday's opening round of the District 11 2A soccer tournament and the Falcons never relented. Salisbury, the sixth-seed, scored early and often en route to a 7-1 victory over eleventh-seeded Tamaqua. Kevin Burahona scored a hat trick for Salisbury, as the Falcons (12-7) moved on to Thursday's quarterfinal against third-seeded Northwestern.

The Lehighton volleyball team would like nothing better than to repeat as Mountain Valley Conference champions.

At the same time, the Pleasant Valley Lady Bears are on a mission to reclaim the Mountain Valley Conference Championship.

Last night in Broadheadsville, both teams took one step closer to their goal with semifinal round victories to set up a rematch with each other Thursday night at Pocono Mountain West High School for the MVC Title.

BOB FORD/TIMES NEWS Pleasant Valley's Felicia Domenici (4) moves the ball down the field away from Bangor's London Dickey during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win in District 11 3A field hockey play.

A little over a week ago, the Bangor field hockey team visited Pleasant Valley and went home a 3-2 loser.

On Thursday afternoon, three of the Bears, Felicia Domenici, Allison Heckman and Alenna Liptak, who were instrumental in that win, did the Slaters in once again.

This time, the Bears won by the same 3-2 score, but needed overtime to do it in a District 11 Class 3A first round battle at PV High Stadium.

After starting at the back of the PIAA Golf Championship pack last year, Mike Englert has found himself in a much better position this year.

Rather than forcing himself to improve on a lackluster first-round performance, which he had last year on Heritage Hills Golf Resorts' par-71 course, the Blue Bomber senior has made it a bit easier for himself heading into his final 18-holes of varsity golf this morning.

EAST STROUDSBURG - Corrine McConville and Vanessa Rimbey, two young ladies who happen to be the best of friends off the field, helped lead the Lehighton field hockey program back to the top of the Mountain Valley Conference this past weekend.

McConville and Rimbey each scored a goal in the Indians' 2-0 defeat over the Mounties from Stroudsburg in Sunday afternoon's conference championship game. Lehighton, who lost to Stroudsburg in last year's title game, avenged the loss and has now won six of the last seven conference championships.

SWIFTWATER - There is only so much that players, teams and coaches can blame on the conditions of the games they play in. However, in last night's rain and mud-fest at Pocono Mountain West, Lehighton managed to cough up the football five times and lost possession twice, on its way to a 21-14 loss.
