Tamaqua holds off winless Dutchmen

Tamaqua hosted an Annville-Cleona team who was searching for the first win.

Their desparation showed as they moved the ball well against a Blue Raider defense which seemed to have some trouble stopping the run.

However, Tamaqua was able to utilize its run game more efficiently and pull off the victory on homecoming night, 43-34.

Tamaqua's Dustin Vandermartin suffered an injury third quarter. Vandermartin was taken to the hospital for x-rays and his status remains unknown.

His presence was felt on both sides of the ball up until his exit.

Marian upsets No. Schuylkill

Marian's best stretch of football this season looked like it might not be enough.

A huge Colt lead had evaporated in what seemed like the blink of an eye.

North Schuylkill was riding a wave of momentum and looked poised to put the finishing touches on an incredible comeback victory.

But just when things appeared to be at their darkest for Marian, a pair of seniors stepped up to light the way.

Thanks to huge contributions from Lucas Damian and Stephen Hall, Marian was able to turn a potential blackout into a brilliant sunrise.

RICH GEORGE/Special to THE TIMES NEWS Palmerton's Tr4e Nelson (22) tries to get away from Palisades' Jesse Snyder for a big gain.

Turnovers can hurt a team's chances of winning. Not only does the offense not possess the ball afterwards, but more importantly, the once-established momentum can also switch hands.

In Friday night's match-up between Palmerton and Palisades, a second-quarter comeback by the Bombers was potentially ended when a fumble gave way to a Pirate touchdown, and a 25-9 halftime deficit seemed too difficult for the depleted Palmerton line-up to overcome the rest of the way.

Steps have been taken to limit access to Lake Ontario by sea lamprey – commonly known as the lamprey ell – by the construction of a barrier/trap on Orwell Creek, a tributary of the Salmon River, in Oswego County, N.Y.

A native to the Atlantic Ocean, this eel-like invasive species originally invaded the Great Lakes and New York's largest Finger Lakes in the 19th century via the Erie Canal.

Nolehi wins first

With some uncertainty at quarterback due to injuries, Northern Lehigh had been experimenting with running back Nate Farber taking direct snaps out of the backfield in practice.

It was something that hadn't been used in game action all season. That is, up until Friday night against the visiting Salisbury Falcons.

And did it certainly provide huge dividends for the Bulldogs.

Jerry Foster of Galeton, a professional butcher and Mossy Oak pro-staff member, demonstrates how to properly care for venison when field dressing deer in warm weather during a seminar at Cabela’s Hamburg store.

HAMBURG – Clearly, the biggest challenge facing archery deer hunters when the statewide season opens Saturday, Oct. 5, and those participating in the one-week early muzzleloader and special firearms antlerless seasons during the month of October is properly caring for deer taken in warmer weather.

SCHUYLKILL HAVEN - Panther Valley lost to Schuylkill Haven, 41-15 last night, but the lopsided score doesn't tell the game story.

The Panthers (1-4), without a bit of bad luck and with some cashing in on several scoring opportunities, might have pulled the upset over the Hurricanes (3-2).

First, the bad luck.

The infancy continues.

About 17 years ago in the magazine that bears his name, John Parrillo, wrote: "Nutrition is a fascinating field. It's one of the few areas of science where highly trained experts with vast clinical experience can completely disagree about even fundamental concepts.

"This disagreement suggests nutrition science is still in its infancy."

But if consensus is required for maturation, nutrition science's "infancy" will never abate. A review of the research done on resveratrol will explain why.

SHENANDOAH – If Jim Thorpe head coach Mark Rosenberger had to give his team a mid-season report card, "S" would probably be an appropriate grade.

"S" as in "satisfactory." Last night, with a 27-14 Anthracite Football League victory over Shenandoah Valley, the Olympians improved to 4-1 at the halfway point of the season and remained undefeated in the AFL (4-0).
