The Pleasant Valley Bears traveled to Allentown for a matchup against Allen High School on a cloudy and damp Friday night. The lights shone on the field, the bands were playing, and the atmosphere was definitely Friday Night Football!
Allen started early and scored a touchdown. The Bears kept fighting and running the ball against the Canaries’ defense.
Some mistakes and penalties took their toll, but the Bears kept fighting and running.
The score at halftime was 13-7 in favor of the Canaries.
Allen received the second-half kickoff because of their deferment at the coin toss before the game began. They marched down the field on the opening series of the second-half and, with the help of a pass interference penalty, scored a touchdown again.
The Bears did not give up and with time winding down, scored another touchdown at the end of the game. The final was: Bears 14, Canaries 33.
Opening day for women’s soccer was a hot, no, very hot day. The Warriors took the field at 4:00pm against the Rams as the sun beat down.
Both teams played to a stalemate in the first half.
The teams took the field again after a much needed break for halftime. Then it was game on!
The Rams scored the first goal, but the Warriors responded not long afterward with a goal of their own!
The game went back and forth; up and down the field.
Both teams put the ball on goal.
But the ball just would not go in.
The final was a 1-1 tie.
High School teams all across the country are taking the field under the lights to compete in football competition. There is nothing quite like the atmosphere of Friday night football!
I was on the sidelines this past Friday night to cover two local games. You can see more of the photos from these games here:
Inspired by Fred Stluka, I created a new segment on my website this week. BE a better Photographer is a quick list of tips on various subjects on how to be a better photographer. Some of the tips are straightforward while others make you think a little. Each category is accompanied by a photograph relating to that specific topic.

Fred Stluka is my Software Super Hero! We had lunch this past week and he is always so engaging and inspirational. I learn not only how to code better HTML, but how to be a better and more positive worker, how to have The Fred Factor, and how to network with others. I included one of Fred’s website links in my new segment, but I want to include it here as well: http://bristle.com/Tips/Career.htm Please check it out, it’s very informative!
