West York head football coach Ron Miller provides a bit of defensive coverage for the football team as they face the field hockey team in the “Kilts for a Cause” game on Monday. (JOHN A. PAVONCELLO —

The idea of the West York field hockey team calling out one of the boys’ athletic teams started out as a joke last year.

But it appears to have grown into something much larger and more meaningful.

Or at least, that’s what Bulldog coach Amanda Steigleman is hoping it will become.

After delivering a challenge to the then two-time Class AAA state championship baseball team that resulted in a close field hockey victory for Steigleman’s club last season, the second-year coach took her aim in a different direction this season. A simple email to football coach Ron Miller led to some friendly back-and-forth bantering that turned into Monday’s “Kilts for a Cause” charity field hockey game.

When Miller accepted the invitation about three weeks ago, the two sides set out to make the event more than just a game. Steigleman, who gave birth to her third child a couple months ago, got to thinking about the less fortunate while caring for her newborn. So she set out with a goal to raise goods and awareness for the York Rescue Mission’s Women’s and Children’s Shelter to help in the fight against domestic violence.

Little did she know just how timely her suggestion would become. With the nation focused on just that topic after several incidents that have plagued the NFL of late, the event became even more meaningful for everyone involved. It probably helped the two teams collect more than 2,500 items for the charity.

“Last year was just kind of a joke, but this year I got the idea of making it more meaningful, with the thought of giving something back to our community,” Steigleman said. “And Coach Miller is usually a pretty good sport about stuff, but I didn’t know how he would react.”

It didn’t take too much coaxing to get Miller to sign off on the ideal.

“Coach Amanda reached out and I’m glad that we could help,” Miller said. “The girls support us every Friday night and my guys get down to support them whenever we can.”

To go along with the challenge of raising goods for charity, the friendly contest also included a wager. If the football team lost, the players would have to wear kilts to school the next day. Conversely, if the field hockey team fell, those players would have to paint their faces in support of the football team this Friday against Kennard-Dale.

It was pretty clear after the opening whistle that there was little chance of the football players avoiding the kilts. They dropped a decisive 5-0 decision.

“We were over our skis big time,” said Miller, who even participated in the action for a couple shifts. “We were way over-matched tonight.”

Steigleman, who helped officiate the contest, was pleased to hear just how much new-found respect that some of the “tough-guy” football players now have for field hockey.

“I think that sometimes the guys just think it’s all about running around with a stick,” she said. “And there were guys behind me making comments like ‘how long are your halves?’ and ‘you run around like this for 30 minutes?’ And I was like ‘yeah, and that’s just a half’ And they were like ‘wow.'”

Despite the one-sided outcome, it was clear that both sides had a blast participating.

“It was really fun,” said Ally Williams, who scored a goal in the victory. “Some of the football players were talking smack. And I just really wanted to show them that we weren’t here to mess around. And I just really wanted to beat my friend Cash Gladfelter.”

Gladfelter, who was perhaps one of the most, if not the most, skilled player for the football side, admitted to gaining a new respect for Williams and her teammates.

“It’s a lot tougher than I thought it would be,” Gladfelter said. “I thought it would be just like a normal Sunset Hockey League — where we play in our sneakers on the basketball court — stuff, but then I realized that I couldn’t use the other side of the stick. So I was out of luck. And it’s a lot of running. I got tired after the first couple of minutes.”

Miller, like any good coach, jokingly took the blame for his team’s demise.

“I didn’t have my guys prepared,” Miller kidded. “We probably would have needed to hire some more help over the weekend to take care of it.”

Steigleman made sure that Miller and his team would have their kilts to take home with them to wear Tuesday for school. And she’s hoping a number of them will wear them when her team hosts Eastern York in a York-Adams League Division II showdown at 4:15 p.m. as well.

RED LION — While there was little of the overly physical play that has become a hallmark of a Dallastown-Red Lion field hockey match, the competitiveness certainly was not lacking Monday afternoon at Horn Field.

For nearly 60 minutes on the turf at Red Lion’s home digs, just one goal — by Wildcat forward Bryna Cook with nine minutes left in the first half — separated the two York-Adams League Division I powers.

While the visitors pretty much dominated the first half, there were a few scary moments when the Lions almost evened things up in the second half.

Dallastown, however, was able to survive and received a clinching goal from Olivia Talley with under a minute remaining to claim an important 2-0 triumph.

“It was exciting,” said Cook, who also assisted on Talley’s goal. “They came out in the second half and we got caught laying back a little bit. So we had to pick it up.”

The Lions were held without a shot over the first 30 minutes, when the defending York-Adams League champions controlled play. Just over 12 minutes into the final half, the hosts picked things up with the second of their three penalty corners for the match.

Dallastown goalie Karley Andrews, who played most of the second half after subbing in for Syd Terroso, was up the task, making the only two saves her team needed.

“In the second half they started getting momentum,” longtime Dallastown head coach Jeri Myers said. “We weren’t running through balls like we should have. We were a little hesitant because you want to make all the stops. We just have to have confidence in what we do.”

Cook agreed.

“I was getting a little nervous when they had that corner,” she said. “They were getting chances, but we have good goalies.”

The Wildcats were able to survive those flurries without the typical scrum ensuing afterwards, something that Cook and her teammates were actually pleased with.

“Yeah, it was pretty close,” Cook said. “But it stayed clean, which usually it doesn’t. Usually it gets pretty bad.”

The visitors were unable to convert on a penalty shot with 10:13 left in the second half when the normally sure-handed Haylee Anders ripped her attempt just wide of the cage.

“She’s usually our steady person,” Myers said. “She’s the one where, as a sophomore, she won the county championship for us against Red Lion. But, you know, you miss every once in awhile.”

The contest was the first battle between the two rivals on the turf at Horn Field with the new scoreboard in operation. A camera shot from the press box displayed the action on the big screen throughout the contest.

Myers didn’t even realize it was up there until late in the match, while Cook admitted to getting a little distracted, but only during the intermission.

“During halftime they had videos playing and I kept getting caught looking over,” Cook said. “It was a little distracting, but it’s nice.”

Dallastown is now 5-0-0 in Division I, while Red Lion fell to 3-2-0.


Kennard-Dale 2, Eastern York 0: At Wrightsville, Morgan Bowings and Calie Swegon scored goals and Emmie Dressel and Morgan Day provided assists for K-D. Eastern’s Emily Bodien had six saves. K-D won the JV match, 2-1.

Gettysburg 5, Susquehannock 0: At Glen Rock, Gettysburg rolled in a meeting of Warriors. Katelyn Gormley had two goals and Emily Spangler had two assists to lead Gettysburg. Kristy Langhen had 33 saves for Susquehannock. Susquehannock won the JV game, 1-0.

West York 0, York Suburban 0: At Suburban, neither team could score in regulation or overtime. Chloe Smith had 14 saves for West York, while Colleen Dommel had six saves for Suburban.
