Football Season Arrives in the Lehigh Valley


Tonight I’ll be in downtown Easton to see my Rovers play their home opener against Pleasant Valley. Even though you age, if you’re around town on a Friday night, it’s probably the best place to go and see everyone else in your community. Tonight the season starts in the Lehigh Valley, and here are my week 1 local picks:

  • Easton 35 Pleasant Valley 7- Easton is good for 7 wins even with a young team.
  • Bethlehem Catholic 49 Liberty 35- High scoring shootout in Bethlehem.
  • Freedom 28 East Stroudsburg South 14- Solid football game.
  • Northampton 28 Allen 0- Somebody has to get a win tonight. Call this the start of the Northampton rebound.
  • Parkland 56 Dieruff 7- Dieruff will have a nice season, just not tonight.
  • Central Catholic 42 Pocono Mt. East 0- Put Central on the board.
  • Emmaus 42 East Stroudsburg North 0- Not even a game.
  • Stroudsburg 28 Nazareth 21- The Mounties have a solid program.
  • Whitehall 49 Pocono Mt. West 0- Yeah, tough night for the PM teams.
  • Notre Dame 35 Northwestern 14- NDGP is the truth.
  • Palmerton 28 Wilson 7- My, my, times have changed. I hope not though, go Warriors.
  • Pen Argyl 21 Northern Lehigh 14- Good football game.
  • Catasauqua 28 Bangor 21- Another competitive game.
  • Southern Lehigh 28 Palisades 14- Taking a guess here.
  • Saucon Valley 35 Salisbury 14- The Panthers are real.
