November 23, 1939 A second-quarter touchdown pass from Frank Priggins to Charley "Broomy" Melley proves to be the difference as Coaldale pulls out a 6-2 Turkey Day win over rival Lansford in a game played before 6,000 fans. A 23-yard run by "Teeler" Jabbo sets up the 15-yard scoring toss, which comes on a fourth down play. Priggins also interceps a desperation pass by the Panthers during the game's final minute to secure the win.

bob ford/times news Northern Lehigh football players hold the District 11 Class AA trophy high in the air after defeating North Schuylkill on Saturday night.

They waited a year for a chance to get their hands on district gold medals and the trophy and there was no way they were going to let it slip away this time.

Joe Tout and his Northern Lehigh Bulldogs went after North Schuylkill right on the opening drive and kept the lead the entire night as they handed the Spartans a 25-23 setback to win the District 11 Class 2A championship on Saturday night at Bulldog Stadium.

BOB FORD/TIMES NEWS Mike Buresh (82) and Kyle Heiser were part of a huge effort by the Northern Lehigh offensive line. Kody Flail (32) is the North Schuylkill defender.

Northern Lehigh's only question mark heading into the season was its offensive line.

While the Bulldogs returned all of their offensive skill players, all five interior linemen graduated from the 2009 district runners up.

Over its first 11 games this year's group proved there was no drop off from last season. With Saturday's District 11 Class AA championships, the unit showed that it could be even better this year.
