It was not a good day for York-Adams League field hockey teams on Tuesday.

All five local teams who competed in the District 3 first-round playoffs on Tuesday suffered season-ending defeats.

Susquehannock came the closest to earning a victory, dropping a 2-1 double-overtime decision to Lancaster Catholic in a AA contest at Penn Manor. Taylor Mumley scored an unassisted first-half goal to give the Warriors a 1-0 lead, but they couldn’t hold on. Ashton Alban made 17 saves for Susquehannock. Lancaster Catholic controlled play, holding a 19-6 edge in shots, and a 21-6 edge in corners. The 11th-seeded Warriors finished at 11-5, while No. 6 seed Lancaster Catholic improved to 15-3-1.

Red Lion also dropped a 2-1 decision in AAA against Manheim Central at York Suburban. That decision came in regulation. Red Lion’s Ali Posey scored the game’s opening goal, but Manheim Central rallied for the win. All the scoring occurred in the first half. The Lions’ Jess Everett made six saves. The No. 6 seed Lions finished at 13-3, while No. 11 seed Manheim Central moved to 14-4-1.

Also in AAA action at Suburban, No. 4 seed Dallastown lost to No. 13 seed Ephrata, 4-2. The Wildcats, the York-Adams Division I and York-Adams Tournament champions, finished at 19-2, while Ephrata improved to 14-5-1. The Wildcats received one goal apiece from Haylee Anders and Rachael Anstine, with Anders’ goal coming by penalty stroke. Wildcats goalie Niki Bream made nine stops. All six goals were scored in the second half.

Back in AA, Kennard-Dale and Bermudian Springs each suffered losses by seven goals.

No. 12 seed K-D fell to No. 5 Lancaster Mennonite, 7-0, at Warwick. Abi Pietra made 13 saves in goal for K-D. The Rams’ season ends at 11-5, while Mennonite moved to 16-3.

The Eagles, the York-Adams Division III champion, lost to Berks Catholic 8-1 at Lower Dauphin. McKenzie Farley scored the Eagles’ only goal, while Regina Allen made three saves in goal for the ninth-seeded Eagles. Bermudian finished at 14-4-1, while eighth-seeded Berks Catholic improved to 16-5.

MANCHESTER — In sports, there are few things more important than confidence.

If you have it, you expect to win. If you don’t, you hope to win.

The Dallastown field hockey team expects to win.

Despite being mired in a scoreless tie at intermission in Thursday’s York-Adams League Tournament championship game against Red Lion, the Wildcats showed their confidence when they told Coach Jeri Myers to relax.

“They said ‘don’t worry, Coach, we’re not going to overtime, we’re not going to strokes, we’re winning it outright,’” Myers said.

Last year’s championship win vs. Red Lion was decided by strokes. That would not be the case this season.

The Wildcats stayed true to their word. They dominated their rivals over the final 30 minutes. After two goals were waved off, including one that Myers contested should have been a good goal, the Wildcats continued their assault until Rachel Anstine scored on a nifty tally with 21 minutes, 55 seconds left in the contest.

They didn’t stop there. Ashley Chioda added an insurance marker with 8:25 left. That was plenty for a Dallastown side that cruised to a 2-0 triumph at Northeastern High School.

The victory, the third over the Lions already this season, marked the second year in a row that the Wildcats (19-1) have won the York-Adams title. Red Lion (15-3) won the first two championships, which began back in 2010.

Myers enjoyed her team’s confidence, especially the fact that she wasn’t the one having to mention it.

“They were the ones saying it,” Myers said with a smile. “The other night I asked if we should practice 7-on-7 and they said, ‘nope, we got it covered Coach.’”

The Wildcats survived a slow start. The Lions possessed the ball for a majority of the game’s first 15 minutes. The Division I runners-up, though, were only able to get one shot on goal during that stretch, which was saved by Dallastown goalie Niki Bream.

That shot on goal proved to be the only one the Lions would register. The Division I champs would own the second half.

Anstine answered her team’s call to action when she knocked a shot through her legs that skipped past Red Lion goalie Jessica Everett. Anstine, who had her back to the goal during the shot, has proven to be a big asset for Myers in front of the net this year.

“I don’t really think too much when I’m there,” Anstine said of her goal, which was assisted by Molly Childress and Taylor Kline. “That’s kind of my spot. Coach puts me on pads and I just turned around and put it straight through my legs.”

While Anstine and company were relieved to get the first tally, they grew hungrier for more.

“We want two goals to get ahead,” Anstine said. “But having one just feels so good.”

Getting a two-goal lead is something that Myers calls “closing the coffin” and Chioda did just that with under 10 minutes remaining.

Myers, however, was disappointed with a ruling earlier in the second half when a goal was waved off for being a dangerous play.

“I asked the official and she said that there was people involved, but I said ‘no one was marked,’” Myers said. “And she went, ‘oh, my bad.’ So it was a goal. It was a goal. When there is nobody but them defending, the onus is on them. They can’t create the danger. But luckily we scored two so it didn’t matter.”

Myers hailed her entire team for its victory.

“It was a total team effort,” she said. “It really was. When you don’t know who to mark on our team and everybody steps up, that’s what makes a Dallastown team. They’re all willing to be the next hero.”

Red Lion coach Carol Gillmen thought her team played well in the first half, but that the Wildcats took the Lions out of their game over the final 30 minutes.

“I thought in the first half it was very even play,” she said. “In the second half, when we had some opportunities we weren’t getting the shot off. Dallastown really steps up to the ball very well and I think that was the big difference maker.”

Heading to districts: The two rivals, who have seen each other at least three times over the past few years, would only get another showdown in the finals or the consolation semifinals of the upcoming District 3-AAA playoffs.

The Wildcats enter the bracket as the No. 4 seed and will play Tuesday at 6 p.m. at York Suburban against the winner of the Ephrata-Governor Mifflin preliminary-round game.

Red Lion earned the No. 6 seed and will battle No. 11 Manheim Central at 4 p.m. Tuesday, also at Suburban.

While the district playoffs haven’t been kind to the Wildcats over the past few years, including several first-round exits, Myers is hoping this year’s club will break through and advance to the PIAA Tournament.

“We’ve been talking all season long about how we’re going to states,” she said. “I’ve been trying to brainwash them, so we’ll see what happens. On any given night the ball can go in and bounce the wrong way.”

MANCHESTER — Red Lion field hockey standout Ali Posey will likely be remembered for her barrage of goals over the last four years.

Those offensive talents have helped the Lions capture one York-Adams League Division I crown, two league tournament titles and two District 3-AAA playoff wins dating back to 2010.

To diehard Lions fans, though, they might also remember Posey for what she did Wednesday night on the defensive end against Bermudian Springs in a league tournament semifinal game at Northeastern High School.

After teammate Morgan Kuehne scored the go-ahead goal with 14:37 remaining, Red Lion coach Carol Gillmen opted to call an audible by putting Posey back on defense to preserve the lead.

“I just felt like we needed to do a bit more defensively to change our system of play,” Gillmen said. “In a way we should’ve capitalized there when we had a couple opportunities to make it a two-score game, but we had to drop her (Posey) back and play much better defensively and hold that one-goal lead.”

The move ended up paying big dividends when Bermudian Springs, the Division III champion, received a penalty corner with 4:25 to play, giving the Eagles a good opportunity to tie the game. The Eagles’ sideline pass came in cleanly, but just before they were able to get off a shot, Posey stepped in front for the steal and took the ball the other way.

Red Lion hung on from there for a 3-2 victory over Bermudian Springs (14-4) to advance to the league title game for the fourth-straight year. The Lions (14-2) will face rival Dallastown (17-1) in the championship Thursday night at Northeastern at 7 p.m. In the earlier game Wednesday, Dallastown beat Kennard-Dale, 4-0.

First half: The Eagles came up just short of advancing to the title game for the first time in program history. They had the Lions on their heels in the first half and took a 2-1 lead at the 8:52 mark on a Katie Johnston score before Posey, a West Chester University recruit, tied it with a goal off a penalty corner with five seconds left before halftime.

Red Lion goalie Jackie Charlton collected three saves in the victory, while Eagles’ keeper Sarah Crane made four stops.

Bermudian Springs did have one last shot to tie the game on a penalty corner in the final seconds of regulation but failed to put a shot on goal.

The Eagles will next prepare for the District 3-AA tournament, where they’re slated to face No. 8 seed Berks Catholic on Tuesday at Lower Dauphin Middle School.

Title game: This will mark the third time in the tournament’s four-year history that Dallastown and Red Lion will square off in the championship game. Winners of the first two league tournaments in 2010 and 2011, Red Lion lost last year’s title game to Dallastown in a shootout and dropped both regular-season matchups this year to the Wildcats, 1-0 and 3-1, and finished second in the division behind Dallastown.

“That’s definitely our No. 1 motivation. We want to see Dallastown again,” Kuehne said. “We got it (the league title) the first two years and then we had a year away and now we’re trying to get it back. It’s definitely been our No. 1 goal of the season.”

Dallastown: The Wildcats outshot Kennard-Dale 12-2 and collected 21 penalty corners to the Rams’ two. Dallastown got a pair of goals from Bryna Cook and scores from Ashley Chioda and Rachael Anstine. Wildcats’ goalie Niki Bream made two saves, while Rams’ keeper Abi Pietra made eight stops.

Kennard-Dale, a Division II tri-champion, will now move on to the District 3-AA tournament, where it is seeded 12th and will face No. 5 seed Lancaster Mennonite at Warwick on Tuesday.

York Dispatch Staff Report

The York-Adams League Field Hockey Championship Tournament is coming into focus.

Three of the four spots in the playoff field have been determined.

Division I champion Dallastown (16-1-0), Division I runner-up Red Lion (13-2-0) and Division III champion Bermudian Springs (14-3-1) have been locked in.

The final remaining berth will go to a Division II team – Kennard-Dale, Susquehannock or West York. Each of those teams finished 6-2 in division action. The first three tiebreakers still could not break the tie – head-to-head results in divisional games, results against other division teams, going from top to bottom, and a play-in game.

As a result, the fourth tiebreaker will determine the Division II representative to the tournament – District 3 power ratings after Monday’s games.

In the latest District 3-AA power ratings, Susquehannock (11-4-1) is No. 11 at .578, Kennard-Dale (10-4-0) is No. 12 at .574 and West York (10-6-0) is No. 13 at .559. All records are through Wednesday’s games.

The York-Adams playoffs start with the semifinals on Wednesday at Northeastern, with Dallastown vs. the Division II representative at 6 p.m., followed by Bermudian vs. Red Lion at 7:30 p.m. The championship match is slated for 7 p.m. Thursday at Northeastern.

There was just one thought going through Abi Pietra’s mind during a frantic penalty corner blitz late in Wednesday’s regular-season finale against rival West York.

“Just get the ball out and don’t let them score,” the Kennard-Dale field hockey goalie said.

Pietra and her four defensive teammates had to work hard to do just that. The Bulldogs, down by just a goal, were awarded five penalty corner chances at the end of regulation.

It was all worth it in the end for K-D. West York’s chances were dashed by a violation that effectively ended the drawn-out battle between York-Adams Division II heavyweights.

The 3-2 victory for the Rams not only ended the Bulldogs’ hope of winning the division title outright, but also forged a complicated three-way tie atop the standings. West York, Kennard-Dale and Susquehannock each finished division play with 6-2 records, but only one of those schools will earn the right to represent Division II in next week’s league playoffs. It’s uncertain how the tie will be broken.

All of that would have been negated had the Bulldogs, who entered with a 6-1 record, downed Coach Andrea Walton’s squad on their home field. The Rams, however, showed resiliency under pressure for a second time during the season.

“It was intense,” Walton said. “It was very exciting, but the girls practice this over and over again. They were prepared, stayed strong and did an awesome job.”

Nobody was better in the crunch than Pietra, who faced a similar experience earlier in the year during a 1-0 victory over Susquehannock. Pietra twice deflected West York scoring chances inside the crease, when the Bulldogs sent all of their attackers toward the goal.

Pietra also had to battle the realization that the home team scored a goal with 2:40 left in the contest off a penalty corner by Kasey Miner that cut a 3-1 lead in half.

“I was like, ‘crap they scored on that last corner and it’s going to happen again.’ It was just crazy,” said Pietra, who finished with eight saves.

The craziness might have tired out others. Whistle after whistle awarded the Bulldogs another chance at scoring the equalizer with no time left on the clock.

Pietra, though, never let her motor slow down.

“Honestly, it wasn’t tiring because you have so much adrenaline,” she said. “You don’t feel tired until the game was over.”

Pietra relied on her experience from a few weeks ago, when she was able to snuff out a similarly intense rally by Susquehannock.

“Against Susky it was the same thing,” she said. “So it was pretty much the same exact situation.”

The showdown, which was the completion of a suspended game played way back on Sept. 12, saw the Rams take the lead on a freak play with 14:59 left in the first half. The visitors slammed a ball on goal that ricocheted high into the net, which typically would have been negated. The referee, however, ruled that the ball skipped off a West York stick, giving Lyndsey Duty credit for the tally.”It was our obstruction and off of our stick, was how it was explained to us,” said West York coach Amanda Steigleman.

Madison Wampler evened up the contest with 19:00 left in the second half for the Bulldogs. The Rams, however, got back-to-back tallies from Taylor Rill at the 9:42 mark and Kayte Fieldler at 5:57 to stake out a seemingly insurmountable 3-1 cushion.

Walton knew better than to feel comfortable at the point.

“That was awesome, but I knew West York was going to push hard,” she said.

Even though the Bulldogs weren’t able to make a memorable comeback, the fact that they were in a position to win even a share of a division title was a proud fact for Steigleman, the team’s first-year coach.

“It speaks just volumes about who these girls are,” Steigleman said. “To come from our first two scrimmages, one was like 9-0 and the other was like 10-0, and I was thinking to myself, ‘what have I gotten myself into?’

“But we just came out of that like it was nothing. We kind of got together and were like, ‘look, we don’t like how this feels and we need to be a team.’ And from that point on we’ve just gotten progressively better every game. I’m just so proud of these girls.”

Both teams finished with 11 shots on goal, while the Bulldogs had a decided 14-6 edge in penalty corners. Bulldog goalie Chloe Smith finished with six saves, while K-D defender Morgan Day registered two defensive saves in addition to Pietra’s eight goalie saves.
