KLT roundup: Freeport outlasts Greensburg Salem in high-scoring hockey game

After three straight overtime games, Freeport hockey got itself into an old-fashioned shootout.

Stone Haberstroh had three goals and four assists to lead the Yellowjackets to a Class A win over Greensburg Salem, 11-6, on Thursday at Kirk S. Nevin Arena.

Robbie Reichenbaugh added a goal and four assists, and Hunter Kepple had two goals and two assists in a game that had 10 different players on the scoresheet for Freeport (5-3-0). Katie Hill turned away 22 of 28 shots for the win.

Ryan Collette had two goals and two assists, and Vincent Defazio had two goals and an assist to lead Greensburg Salem (2-6-0).

Leechburg adding track

Leechburg High School has started a track and field club, and the plan is to have athletes compete in individual meets in the indoor and outdoor seasons.

The school board approved the club this week at no cost to the district. The school has not applied to the WPIAL for team membership. The WPIAL’s track season is in the spring, during which Leechburg currently offers only baseball and softball.

The club will be overseen by athletic director Mark Jones and football coach Mark George. Since the district is without a track, the club will explore partnerships with other districts to use their facilities. Ford City is one of them.

The district business office will create a student activity account for fundraising.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
