NEC News of the Day: Red Flash Will Participate in Pair of Firsts plus Top Tweets & Other News Links

Two events will transpire for the first time this weekend and the Saint Francis (PA) Red flash will take part in both.

The first-ever night game in the history of Robert Morris’ Joe Walton Stadium is scheduled for Saturday, October 8, and the Red Flash are the Colonials’ opponent for the evening.  There’s always a buzz when the NEC’s two original Keystone State rivals clash, and that buzz could become louder than ever considering it’s also Homecoming Weekend at RMU and the Colonials are expecting a record crowd.

From the gridiron to the lanes of Holiday Bowl we go.  Tom Falbo is set to lead the Red Flash into their second season of NCAA bowling, which begins this weekend in Altoona.  The first of the NEC’s 10 bowling members to lift the lid off the 2011-12 season, the Red Flash will take on Penn State-Altoona in dual match play.

Holiday Bowl will also be the host site for the second of four Northeast Conference regular season bowling meets this season.

Overtime! is hoping to sit down with Falbo at some point next week and will share the interview with you once its complete.
