Lacrosse: Hampton boys gear for showdown with North Catholic

Written by Joe Koch on .

Following an 8-7 overtime victory over Class 3A Franklin Regional this past Thursday, the Hampton boys lacrosse team will take a few days off before a key Class 2A, Section 2 game on Tuesday with host Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic.

Coach Jim Vollberg's Talbots saw their four-game winning streak snapped with a 13-9 loss this past Monday to Class 3A Peters Township.

Going into the Franklin Regional game, Hampton had its share of one-sided victories with triumphs over Gateway, 18-1, North Hills, 16-4, Greensburg Central Catholic, 15-1, and Freeport, 13-6. But the Talbots have had their share with close games, too, with a 13-11 victory over Shaler and an 8-7 victory over Butler. Another loss was a 9-5 setback to Moon.

Tuesday's game at North is the only meeting between the two teams, and it represents yet another challenging game for the Trojans, who had three one-sided victories against non-section foes Trinity, 23-12, and Gateway, 17-6, and a 19-1 victory over section rival Indiana. The Trojans remained unbeaten with an 8-7 overtime victory this past Monday over section rival Knoch before dropping a 23-7 decision to unbeaten Mars this past Wednesday.

Baseball: Hampton continues to roll

Written by Keith Barnes on .

Hampton has another 10 days before it has to take the field against Class 5A Section 1 rival Mars in what could be a showdown for first place.

In the meantime, the Talbots are just rolling along.

On Monday, Hampton's Phil Conti went 3 for 3 with three doubles and three RBIs to lead the Talbots (4-1, 3-0) to a 9-2 victory over Armstrong. Neil Carvelli also chipped in a 2 for 3 night with a pair of two-baggers and scored three times.

Before the Talbots take on the Planets, however, they will have to get through a resurgent Deer Lakes team on Monday that is 5-1 and 3-0 in the section.
