The PV Bears won another game, this time at home against East Stroudsburg North. It was a thrilling game that wasn’t completely decided until close to the end of regulation. PV struck first on a touchdown pass to Danny Hunter.
It was Senior Night at Pleasant Valley and before kickoff the Senior football players and cheerleaders were announced. They were accompanied by parents as they were introduced to the crowd.
Quarterback, Brandon Kuehner, had a big night and threw for two TDs. He connected with Tanner Parascando who made a circus catch as you can see in these next three photos.
It was a very memorable night for the 2014 PV Senior Football Players!
Travis Van Houten took the mound for Pleasant Valley in their home opener as they hosted East Stroudsburg North on a beautiful April Fool’s Day in Brodheadsville. The game started evenly after an inning as each team’s defense did the job. Van Houten pitched efficiently and recorded six outs without much trouble.
Then PV put together some hits. Here in the photo above, pinch runner Jerry Peechatka, stole second base. PV went up 2-0 and never looked back. Van Houten worked out of some possible trouble several times and the PV defense assisted nicely.
The portable home run fence was not up yet and a couple of long bombs might have cleared that fence if it was in place. But PV kept the pressure on, worked out of trouble, and looked solid in their home opener.
Thomas Aruta had two hits to help the team work to a 5-0 advantage, which would be the final score. PV baseball is now in full swing and the team is looking good! Tomorrow they host East Stroudsburg South.

East Stroudsburg South is undefeated and are the Mountain Valley Conference champions for 2013! They rolled in their last game against rival East Stroudsburg North. The air was filled with anticipation well before kickoff. It was Senior Night for North, too.
North made it interesting early, responding to a 7-0 deficit by scoring a touchdown of their own. The extra point was missed, but the response was noted. Niko Petrone scored touchdown after touchdown and the undefeated season was secured.
