Key Contributors

Below the headlines there are many efforts that contribute to team success. NEPA Sports Nation takes a look at some of those from Aug. 19-29 and will recognize several of them here each week.

CHRIS CONSERETTE, Valley View, football

Conserette, a junior cornerback, led the Valley View defense in a 34-14 win over Dallas. He made eight tackles, assisted on five more and forced a fumble.

Wallenpaupack kicking specialist Roman Levant

ROMAN LEVANT, Wallenpaupack, football

The opening week’s highest-scoring kicker made field goals from 36 and 27 yards, went 5-for-5 on extra points and put five kickoffs in the end zone for touchbacks. He also had a pair of 29-yard punts in a 41-6 victory over Honesdale.

ALYSSA TRAUGER-EMALYN WESTFIELD, Tunkhannock, girls tennis

With the other four points decided and Tunkhannock locked in a tie with Hanover Area, the second doubles team of Trauger-Westfield pulled out a 7-5 win in the second-set tiebreaker for a 6-2, 7-6 victory in its match and a 3-2 team win for the Lady Tigers.

TYLER WASSEL, Pittston Area, boys golf

Wassel could have been in for a long day when he opened an Aug. 26 golf match at Wilkes-Barre Golf Club with a triple bogey. Instead, he settled in to play the remainder of the nine-hole match in 1-under, posting a 38 for his team’s second-best score in a 161-181 victory over Wilkes-Barre Area.

SINCERE WILLIAMS, Wilkes-Barre Area football

Williams, a 148-pound sophomore defensive back, had a dozen tackles, including two for losses, and assisted on one more in a 35-13 win over Scranton.
