While it’s pretty clear that Northeastern and Central York are the top two boys’ volleyball teams in the York-Adams League this season, a pair of clubs looking to close the gap on those two squared off at York Suburban High School on Tuesday night.

Both the home-standing Trojans and the visiting Bulldogs of West York entered the contest with 4-1 league records heading into their Tuesday battle. While Suburban entered the season as probably the favorite to be the No. 3 team in the league, the Bulldogs were not really in the discussion.

And for good reason. West York coach Kevin Wolf wasn’t even sure he would field a team as late as a week before the preseason started. With only nine players, many of whom had never played the sport, Wolf had his work cut out for him.

While the Bulldogs showed many traits of a solid volleyball team, the Trojans were just a bit better. Behind a game-high 12 kills from Jacob Kauffman, Suburban swept the visitors, 25-22, 25-21, 25-18.

“They’re a good team,” Kauffman said. “I was very impressed by how far some of those (West York) guys have come.”

The Bulldogs had their chances in the first two games. They evened the score at 22-22 late in Game 1, but kills from Ryan Bury (six kills) and Kauffman, followed by a rotation error, allowed the Trojans to prevail.

That rotation error was one of several called against the visitors in Game 1. Part of that could have been the result of the team missing libero Mitch Grimm, who missed school because of an illness.

“Obviously when you pull a player like that out, beyond the skill, you have guys playing in positions that they really haven’t played before,” Wolf said. “In the first game we had four or five out-of-rotation calls. That’s four or five points, and when you lose by two or three points, that’s a game right there.”

The Bulldogs weren’t the only team to give away free points. Suburban (6-1 overall, 5-1 league) missed a number of services and allowed a handful of free-ball opportunities in both Game 1 and Game 2. West York took advantage, grabbing a 10-7 lead in Game 2 before the Trojans rallied with a quick 7-2 run to regain control.

“We talked about our unforced errors,” Suburban coach Jamie Evans said. “We just couldn’t give away free points. Serving … absolutely. We gave away eight or nine points in the first two games and you just can’t do that.”

The home team dominated in Game 3, using a 10-1 run to go up 18-8. That allowed Evans to play some of his younger guys, much to the delight of the Suburban fans and seniors.

“That was kind of cool. I didn’t realize until right before Ryan (Bury) subbed back in that we had five sophomores out on the floor there along with Jake,” Evans said. “We have six seniors, so we know we’re going to need those guys next year.”

Austin Groff led West York with eight kills and eight digs, while Taylor Boyer dished out 10 assists.

Lars Dalemar racked up 11 assists for the Trojans, while Kauffman and Ian Firestone each tallied five digs.

Suburban is now alone in third place in the league.

MANCHESTER — A lot of boys’ volleyball teams would find themselves in big trouble if they lost their all-state setter for any period of time.

Only the very strong and deep programs could survive such a loss.

Fortunately for Northeastern coach Matt Wilson, his program would fit into that category. With lingering shin issues plaguing senior setter Luke Braswell for the better part of 45 days, Wilson made a commitment to hold out his setter until the injury subsides.

So without Braswell, the Bobcat coach picked sophomore Matt Schaeffer to run the offense Thursday night against York-Adams League rival Red Lion. With Schaeffer setting up his teammates, Northeastern didn’t seem to miss a beat. The defending PIAA Class AA champs swept past the Lions, 25-10, 25-18, 25-16.

“What Matt Schaeffer did for us tonight was huge,” Wilson said after Schaeffer dished out 27 assists. “He brings a lot of enthusiasm to the court. He’s a smart setter and he’s been around with us for a long time.”

The good news for Schaeffer was that he had some time to prepare for his promotion from the JV squad. While Braswell played Tuesday night against Susquehannock, it was determined sometime last week that Schaeffer would set for the varsity club once Braswell’s shin injury became too painful.

“We knew about a week ago that Luke was going to be sitting out to nurse his injury,” Schaeffer said. “So I had some time to prepare (in practice) to get into it more. So I feel I’m adjusted now.”

A young, yet highly talented supporting cast of hitters can make the adjustment a lot easier. Fellow sophomore Reese Devilbiss and junior Philip White each boomed 11 kills to lead the Bobcats, who compiled nine aces.

The biggest difference that Schaeffer notices was, not surprisingly, the higher level of skill and speed displayed all around the court at the varsity level.

“The quality of play is a lot better,” he said. “In JV it’s a lot slower and varsity is a lot faster.”

The transition got an “assist” from Braswell, who provided his apprentice with a bevy of tips, while trying to avoid seeming like a coach.

“I try to be a mentor to him,” Braswell said. “I don’t want to feel like I’m coaching him, because if I were in his shoes I wouldn’t want someone on the team to coach me. So I just try to give him pointers about what our team likes and that kind of stuff.”

Two areas — serving and blocking — that Wilson pays a lot of attention to played key roles in the victory. Devilbiss finished with three aces but started the night with nine-straight points at the service line to set the tone. White, who also recorded three aces, displayed a menacing serve at times, while Chris Lee and Matt Hollinger also had strong service rotations.

White and Casey Winand each tallied three blocks to lead the Bobcats, who tallied 11 as a team.

“I thought we blocked well and I thought that Philip blocked really well,” Wilson said. “He touched a lot of balls. So it was a good night for us tonight. We’re really happy.”

Dillon Hildebrand led the Lions with seven kills, eight digs and two blocks. The trio of Dan Longnecker, John Longnecker and Hunter Klein combined for 16 assists for Red Lion.

Notes: Braswell will most likely be out of action for “a while,” Wilson said.

“How long? I don’t know,” Wilson said. “It’s kind of like shin splints on steroids. So it’s a severe shin ailment and the only way to get it better is rest.”

That means Braswell will definitely be on the sidelines for this weekend’s Koller Classic at Central York High School. Nearly all of the state’s top-ranked clubs will be in action at the Koller, so it will provide Schaeffer a good chance to gain some valuable experience.

“The experience that he’s able to get with this court time at this level should get him ready as we play quality opponents,” Wilson said.

Northeastern improved to 7-0 overall and 5-0 in the York-Adams League. Red Lion fell to 3-2 overall and in the league.

Perennial boys’ volleyball powers from across the state will compete at Central York High School this weekend in the 39th year of the Koller Classic.

The top-three-ranked Class AA teams in the state will be on hand, as will six Class AAA teams ranked in the top 10 in the state.

The one-day varsity tournament will be held Saturday at Central York beginning at 8:30 a.m. Admission will be $2 for students and $5 for adults. A junior varsity tournament will begin Friday at 4 p.m., with identical admission prices. All proceeds benefit the Central York High School boys’ volleyball team and the Central York Athletic Booster Club.

Ranked 1-2-3 in Class AA in the first state rankings published by the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association, Ambridge, Northeastern and Derry are set to compete in the annual tournament.

Northeastern beat Ambridge for the state AA crown last year, marking the fourth state title for the Bobcats’ boys’ volleyball team.

This weekend’s tournament could feature quite a few rematches of sorts.

At Northeastern’s Bobcat Invitational two weeks ago, Central York beat Ambridge in the semifinals before going on to beat Hempfield in the final. Hempfield had defeated Northeastern in the other semifinal at that invitational.

Both Central York, the top-ranked Class AAA team in the state and winners of five state crowns, and Hempfield, ranked No. 3 in the state AAA rankings, will compete Saturday. As will four other teams ranked in the top 10 in the state in Class AAA: No. 5 North Allegheny, No. 8 Neshaminy, No. 9 Parkland and No. 10 Central Dauphin.

Central Dauphin and Hempfield both reached the state AAA semifinals a year ago. North Allegheny won last year’s Koller Classic before later winning the AAA state title match over Pennsbury, which is also slated to compete Saturday.

Three weeks ago at the North Allegheny Invitational, Central York beat North Allegheny in the finals.

Even more local flavor will be featured with Dallastown and York Suburban set to participate. In all, a total of 20 teams, including 11 who were state qualifiers a year ago, across four pools will battle for a championship trophy that will be presented by former longtime Central coach Bruce Koller, who led the Panthers’ program from 1970 to 2001.

Following is a list of the participating teams, along with the pools they will compete in. An “x” indicates a returning state qualifier.

Pool A: x-Central York, Cambridge Springs, x-North Allegheny, x-Emmaus, x-Chambersburg.

Pool B: Dallastown, x-Hempfield, x-State College, x-Derry, Neshaminy.

Pool C: York Suburban, x-Bethlehem Catholic, x-Central Dauphin, x-Ambridge, x-Pennsbury.

Pool D: x-Northeastern, Red Land, Penn Manor, Montour, Parkland.
