October 4, 1975 Weatherly jumps out to an early lead and holds on to defeat Pine Grove, 14-12, for the Wreckers first win of the season.

Kicker Tom Kanyak converts both PATs, which eventually prove to be the difference in the game.

Brian Kelly's Notre Dame football team took a step backwards last week when the Irish were spanked by Stanford, 37-14, in South Bend. After an opening win over a now suspect Purdue, and heartbreaking losses to Michigan and Michigan State, the Irish performance against a very good Stanford team has many wondering what's going on.

The ND defense did not look bad considering the final score, but could not stop the Cardinal on third down plays. But the biggest problem, and one that dogged Charlie Weis in his final years, is a lack of a running game.

SWIFTWATER – It was a tale of two halves for the Pocono Mountain East football team Friday night.

After gaining just 166 total yards in the first half against Lehighton, the Cardinals came out after the break and really put it together offensively. The Cardinals scored on six of their seven second-half possessions, racking up 317 yards in two quarters, and went on to rout the Indians, 62-41 in Mountain Valley Conference play.

NANCY SCHOLZ/Special to THE TIMES NEWS Northern Lehigh's Matt Gill gets tackled by a Salisbury defender, but not before picking up some yardage.

SALISBURY TWSP – It's hard enough for the Colonial League's best defenses to tackle Cody Remaley. But Salisbury, which had given up 44 points per game heading into its Homecoming night contest against Northern Lehigh, seemed to have little chance to catch or bring down the Colonial League's all-time rushing leader.

Remaley only needed seven carries to gain 192 yards and four rushing touchdowns in a 67-28 rout of the Falcons.

"My line, with [fullback] Matt [Gill]," Remaley said. "They did an awesome job tonight. I think I was only tackled two or three times."

NOXAMIXON TOWNSHIP The blaring car horns that repeatedly beeped after the Palisades-Palmerton game last night weren't from the host Pirates' fan who were celebrating their homecoming game.

Instead, those were from cars from the Palmerton faithful who celebrated their own version of a homecoming on Palisades' field.

For the first time in the last 13 contests between the two clubs, Palmerton walked away with a victory over Palisades, this time in grand fashion in a 38-0 rout over the winless Pirates.
