NANCY SCHOLZ/TIMES NEWS Timothy East (9) of Northwestern shields a Southern Lehigh player as he settles the ball.

Northwestern nearly doubled Southern Lehigh's shot total during Monday's District 11 Class AA semifinal contest at Whitehall, but the shot advantage didn't turn into a winning formula for the third-seeded Tigers.

That's because Andrew Fetterman's goal in double overtime gave second-seeded Southern Lehigh a 1-0 win to continue the Spartans' season and end Northwestern's in agony.

CATASAUQUA – Panther Valley and Lehighton each won matches but none of the local teams could move on in Saturday's District 11 AA Volleyball Tournament.

Lehighton started the day off by making some noise in their opening Pool A match against Blue Mountain. The Lady Indians took the first game 25-23 and put the tournament's top team on the ropes by taking leads in the next two games. The Eagles were just too strong in coming back to win their match, 2-1.

"I think what really affected us was the long layoff going into districts," Lehighton coach Rachel Quinn said.

"We were ready to play Wednesday, we were ready to play Thursday, and we were ready to play today," said Lehighton's Abby Frey, who had a goal and an assist in the game. "The postponements didn't bother us because we're always ready to play. We could play again right now."

In the opening minutes of Palmerton's game against Pen Argyl Saturday afternoon, it became quite apparent that a classic showdown between Blue Bomber quarterback Joe Weber and Pen Argyl running back Dylan Evans could have easily been the highlight of the entire game.

After all, both of them nearly touched the ball on every play leading to the final 19 seconds of the first half until a clear separation began. Unfortunately for the Blue Bombers, Evans stole the show the rest of the afternoon.
