POCONO MOUNTAIN EAST AT LEHIGHTON

WHEN

Friday, 7 p.m.

RECORDS

Pocono Mountain East 1-3 overall (0-1 Mountain Valley Conference); Lehighton 1-3 overall (0-1 Mountain Valley Conference)

KEYS TO THE GAME

* Lehighton expects East to run either a "53" or "60" formation on defense. Thus, the Indians will look to "polish" up their own "Apache" offensive attack - their own version of the "Wildcat." With Tim Sulzer limited with a slight injury, the Indians will look to 6-foot, 190-pound senior running back Nate Black to carry the load of the carries.

Pleasant Valley has a lot of new faces on its football team this year.

From the head coach to the assistant coaches to the starters on the field, there have been a number of people who have turned a 'rebuilding season' into a little bit more than that.

One face everyone will soon come to know is that of Robert Getz.

Before his Panthers began the season, Panther Valley head coach Frank Damian was well aware of what teams were going to be serious contenders in the Anthracite Football League.

"We knew coming back that (the AFL) would have some good, solid teams that had a lot of people coming back," Damian said. "If they stayed injury free, they're all going to be tough in the league.

"North Schuylkill being one, Tamaqua being another, and Haven as well."

GIRLS SOCCER

Jim Thorpe-Tamaqua

Scoring on its first three possessions and relying on its talented skill players, PV dominated from start to finish to register a lopsided 50-6 Anthracite League win.

It's not too often that a coach complains about a win being too ugly.

In fact, Palmerton head coach Paul McArdle doesn't mind how ugly his team's 18-17 come-from-behind, last-minute win over Saucon Valley might have been.

In the final two minutes, Palmerton's senior quarterback Joe Weber connected with junior receiver Christian Marcin for two touchdowns, bringing his team back for the seemingly impossible win.

"We needed this win, without a doubt," McArdle said. "It was a 'must win' and it wasn't pretty but that's fine with me."

Last year the Palisades football team beat Northern Lehigh for the first time in the school's history.

Cody Remaley and his fellow Bulldogs weren't about to let it happen two years in a row.

MAHANOY CITY - Tamaqua's opening drive of the game against Mahanoy Area came up short on fourth down at the Golden Bears' 21 yard-line.

That turned out to be one of the few times the Blue Raiders were stopped, as they scored on eight of their next nine possessions to roll to a 55-0 Anthracite League victory Friday night at Alumni Field.

The triumph improved Tamaqua to 4-0 (3-0 league) for the first time since the 1962 Eastern Conference championship season.
