Smelas, Jim Thorpe pull away

It was just the kind of soccer game Chelsea Smelas was having on Saturday!

The Jim Thorpe senior had a late corner kick on Weatherly's side of the field late in the game. She booted the ball towards one of the forwards in the middle of the field, but it took a pronounced curve and sailed into the Weatherly net.

"Oh, my God," the surprised Smelas said to herself.

That was her fifth goal of the day as the Olympians won over the Wreckers, 9-2, in Weatherly's homecoming game.

Smelas had an additional 17 shots on goal during the game.

SALISBURY For Palmerton senior wide receiver Monty Szukics, it was more than just his first game back playing offense. It was a chance to prove himself as an offensive weapon.

Last night, the 5-11, 150-pound speedster did just that, as he made the most of his comeback into the offensive lineup, hauling in eight catches for 125 yards and a touchdown.

Along with senior quarterback Cody Grohotolski and junior tailback Alex Vignone, the trio provided enough offensive firepower to help their team score an 18-6 win over the Falcons and improve to 2-1 on the young season.

Bob Ford/TIMES NEWS Tamaqua quarterback Matt DelBorrello tries to break away from Shenandoah’s Eric Whalen during last night’s Anthracite Football League game.

With less than 10 minutes remaining, Tamaqua had a comfortable three touchdown lead over Shenandoah Valley on "Hall of Fame Induction Night" on Raider Hill.

The Blue Devils' junior quarterback Christopher Palubinsky seemed to feel that there was still plenty of time left and he was right.

Palubinsky threw for two touchdowns and ran for another to lead the Blue Devils to a 28-21 comeback victory that left a sour taste in the mouths of the Blue Raiders.

HELLERTOWN – It's a matter of quality over quantity.

Northern Lehigh didn't use its passing game often against Saucon Valley. But when the Bulldogs went to the air Friday night in Hellertown, they made the most of it.

Quarterback Dylan Hofmann threw just eight passes, but half of his six completions went for touchdowns in a 36-0 win over the Panthers.

"They blitzed a lot so we had the flats open on a lot of routes," Hofmann said. "They didn't really adjust so we took advantage of it."
