EASTON – It might not be as high-powered as some of the Wilson Air Raid offenses of the past decade, but the Warriors still have enough weapons to win a game when given the opportunity. And on Saturday, they were given several opportunities.

Both teams made mistakes, but Wilson was better able to capitalize on Palmerton's miscues to come away with a 19-12 win in the Warriors' home opener.

CENTER VALLEY – Tyler Stelmack knows the DeSales University cross country course. He's run it plenty of times in his career.

The Northwestern senior used his knowledge of the course to earn a fourth-place finish Saturday in the 34th Annual DeSales Invitational. Tiger teammate Haley Yost ran to a fifth-place finish in the girls race as six area runners took home medals, which went to the top 25 finishers in the varsity races.
