April 2006

Kristen Corridoni scored three goals on penalty kicks, including the game-winner in overtime to help Pittston Area’s girls soccer team beat Wallenpaupack, 4-3.

Carlena Semenza also scored for the Lady Patriots. Wallenpaupack came into the game unbeaten and hadn’t allowed a goal all season long. The win put Pittston Area in a tie for second in the Wyoming Valley Conference Division C.

April 1996

The Seton Catholic softball team opened the season with a 19-5 win over Bishiop Hafey under new head coach Tricia Talerico.

Aimee Grabosky was the winning pitcher and had two hits and two RBI as a batter. Fran Hergan had two hits, including a home run, and four RBI.

April 1986

Wyoming Area’s “Mister Everything” Ken Kopetchny signed a letter of intent to attend East Stroudsburg State University following his senior football season.

A three-year starter and two-time All-Scholastic, Kopetchny was a wide receiver, defensive back and returned kickoffs and punts for Paul Marranca’s Warriors.

April 1976

Former Pittston Area and Wyoming Seminary standout wrestler John Licata won the 178-pound championship at the Junior Olympic Meet held at Dallas High School. Licata won three times for the title.

With the win, Licata earned the right to compete in the Middle Atlantic Championships in Newport.

April 1966

Thanks to a 7-3 win over Wilkes-Barre Marymount and a 14-2 win over Plains Sacred Heart, the St. John’s baseball team moved into a tie for first place in the Catholic League.

Against Sacred Heart, Ed Romanko had two singles and a triple. Brian Doyle had two hits, while Pete Troynacki had a triple. Tony Pierantoni went all seven innings for the Johnnies, while allowing just four hits. Pierantoni was also on the mound for St. John’s win over Marymount.
