The Susquehannock and Central York/Dallastown ice hockey teams don’t have much choice when it comes to being rivals.

As the only two remaining York County teams in the Central Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League, it was essentially an arranged marriage.

However, on Wednesday night in a Tier 3 battle between the two York County teams, close proximity wasn’t the only thing the two sides had in common.


York Tech triumphs in boys’ basketball:

The York Tech boys’ basketball team got 18 points from Austin Wehler and 17 from Ty Brown in a 79-44 victory over visiting Fairfield on Monday night.

Jake Yingling had 14 points to lead Fairfield.

Susquehannock rolls in ice hockey: The Susquehannock ice team rolled to an 11-3 victory over the Shamrocks in a Central Penn Interscholastic Hockey League contest on Monday night at York City Ice Arena.

The Central York/Dallastown ice hockey team continued its unbeaten streak to open the season on Wednesday night.

The combined team knocked off Lampeter-Strasburg, 8-3, at Lancaster Ice Rink, improving its record to 4-0 on the year and moving into first place in the Central Penn Interscholastic Hockey League Tier 3 standings.

After Central York/Dallastown allowed the first goal of the game, the offense woke up and stole the show. Reid Delbiondo scored twice in the final minutes of the first period to give the visitors a 2-1 advantage after the opening 16 minutes. From then on, Central York/Dallastown never looked back.



It was only a handful of years ago that there were eight York-area high school teams participating in the Central Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League.

Due to many factors, however, that number has dwindled steadily.

Now, only two county squads remain — Central York/Dallastown and Susquehannock, with both playing in the CPIHL’s lowest level, Tier 3.


The combined team of Central York and Dallastown shut out Middletown 5-0 to kick off the Central Penn Interscholastic Hockey League Tier 3 season on Monday at the York City Ice Arena.

After leading just 2-0 after two periods, the combined team scored three times in the final period to open up the game. Collin Young scored twice in the third period to go along with his second-period goal, completing his hat trick. Anthony Tranchitella had a goal and three assists to lead all players with four points, while Remington Batt had a goal and two assists. Griffin Long only needed to make 12 saves to earn the shutout.
