MANCHESTER — When a team has three standout players, getting all of them involved is sometimes the biggest challenge.

The Dallastown Wildcats seem to have figured out an effective way to do just that through an exercise they run in practice — the five-pass drill. Not surprisingly, that drill is pretty much exactly like it sounds — five passes must be made before the offense can even think about shooting.

It’s pretty clear that the drill has helped the Wildcats get their big three of Amari Johnson, Katie McGowan and Debria Hendricks in sync.

Wednesday night against Northeastern, Dallastown was able to quickly move the ball around the Bobcat defense for scoring opportunities. Led by Johnson’s team-high 14 points, the Wildcats were able to leave Manchester with an impressive 47-30 non-league triumph.

“We are able to do it in games really easy because of that working on it in practice,” said Johnson, who collected 20 rebounds in the victory. “So, as the defense shifts we’re able to find a wide open shot.”

All three players finding touches early on in the game really helps to set a mental tone for the Wildcats, according to Johnson.

“It takes for all of our heads to be in the game,” she said. “And it takes for each and every one of us to pump each other up. We just can’t be about ‘me, me, me’ we have to be about ‘us.’ Because when we’re about ‘us,’ that’s how we win the game.”

Getting those touches doesn’t always translate into points. That was the case on many occasions on Wednesday, when the Wildcats struggled with their touch from the field (22-of-59, 37 percent).

Fortunately, the Dallastown defense was able to cause similar issues for the Northeastern offense. Standout Bobcat senior Payton Hauck (eight points) converted on just 3-of-19 shots during a rare off shooting night.

“We didn’t finish around the basket,” Northeastern coach Bill Novak said. “And that was tough because we had some easy ones that we needed to convert.”

The Wildcats pulled away in the second quarter with a 12-3 run that took place over the first seven minutes of the period. That stretched a 15-7 advantage into a comfortable 27-10 lead.

“(Northeastern) wasn’t hitting from the outside and they have hit from the outside throughout the year,” Dallastown coach Mary Manlove said. “And it was good for us that tonight they were cold and we were able to control the rebounding (50-27 edge for the game).”

Despite that, Novak’s side found a way to put together a 13-2 run to close to within six points (29-23) with 3:13 left in the third.

“I think we like doing that comeback thing,” Novak said. “We seem to try to do that a lot.”

McGowan (12 points) personally helped to break that run by scoring six points during a 10-3 Dallastown response, after which the home team was never able to recover.

“They came out (of halftime) strong,” Johnson said. “They didn’t want to lose and we didn’t want to lose either, but we were not prepared for how strong they came out. But in the fourth quarter we caught (fire) a little.”

Preventing lulls, such as the one in the third period, is something that Manlove most definitely wants to avoid in the future.

“We had a nice first quarter, but I think there is still plenty to work on,” she said after her team improved to 15-5. “We played a little sloppy, and credit to Northeastern for making us play a little ugly.”

While Hauck struggled with her shot, teammate Jordyn Kloster was able to pick up some slack. The forward finished with a game-high 16 points to go with 16 rebounds in the setback that dropped her team to 12-7.

“I think that we were a bit too worried about Payton, and that Kloster was able to kind of open things up a bit,” Manlove said. “Kloster played phenomenal.”

Northeastern’s Kobi Nwandu dribbles against West York’s Matt Dellorfano on Tuesday night. Pennsylvania does not have a shot clock, which allows teams to hold the ball for an indefinite period of time. (JOHN A. PAVONCELLO — jpavoncello@yorkdispatch.com)

As I sat and covered the boys’ basketball game between Northeastern and Eastern York a few weeks back, I began to look around the Northeastern High School gymnasium and observe the fans.

The Golden Knights were giving the then-undefeated Bobcats all they could handle in a game that I’m sure many didn’t expect to be close. As the fourth quarter began, Eastern held a slight advantage, forcing the Northeastern fans to rally behind their team in an effort to will the Bobcats to victory.

Sure enough, the Bobcats went on an 8-2 run, erasing a five-point deficit and taking the lead. The excitement and energy level of both the players and the fans during that run was nothing short of electric. Northeastern fans were euphoric at the run their team was making, while the Eastern fans were doing whatever they could to keep their team in the game. And then, it all just stopped.

Donovian Maxwell brought the ball over midcourt after a steal and just held the ball. With more than four minutes to go in a one-point game, the Bobcats, with momentum fully on their side, were content in taking the air out of the ball. And the worst part? The Golden Knights were letting them.

Both teams sat there and just looked at each other, while fans around me grew restless and irritated at the lack of action. Here was a good game that had the makings of a great finish, only to be stalled by the fact that there was nothing preventing the two teams from simply not playing.

No shot clock: In high school basketball in Pennsylvania, there is no shot clock. It allows teams to possess the ball for, sometimes, minutes on end without even sniffing a shot attempt. It’s a rule that puts the winning team in the driver’s seat and forces the losing team to make a decision: start fouling or pressure and try to cause a turnover.

The end result of that odd sequence wound up playing out like this: After about two minutes of holding the ball, Northeastern called a timeout. Out of the timeout, both teams went back to what they were doing before and just stood around. Then, with Eastern pressuring, the Bobcats turned the ball over, then got it right back after forcing a turnover of their own, made a few free throws and the game ended with Northeastern still unbeaten. It was about as anticlimactic a finish as you could’ve had in a game that saw the home favorite erase an 11-point deficit and hold on to win.

Afterward, Northeastern coach Jon Eyster said: “We wanted them to come out and play us man-to-man. They would have trouble matching up with us.”

It was an understandable response, playing on the idea of match-ups and trying to force the opposition to do something it wasn’t comfortable doing.

Fast forward ahead two weeks and the same thing happened in another Bobcats game, only this time Eyster’s team was on the wrong side of a team sitting on the ball and killing the clock.

Down by as many as eight in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s game at West York, the Bulldogs chose to eat away at the clock, just in a less blatant way. Rather than simply holding the ball, they passed it around, forcing Northeastern to chase and start fouling with about 2 1/2 minutes to play. It extended the game for the Bobcats to the point where they cut the deficit to as little as four points, but ultimately suffered their first defeat of the season, 63-58.

After the game, West York coach Bill Ackerman said: “All we wanted to do was make them play defense … and let their aggressiveness hurt them in the end.”

I have no problem with the concept that Ackerman used. All he was doing was using the lack of a shot clock to his advantage.

Hurting the game: Unfortunately, this type of tactic is hurting high school basketball in Pennsylvania. While this isn’t a new thing — the non-existent shot clock — it might be time for the PIAA to think about putting one into play and I’d be hard pressed to believe that I’m the only one who thinks this. A number of states do use a shot clock for high school boys’ and girls’ games, including California, Massachusetts and New York. Most states, however, do not.

Fans in that Northeastern-vs.-Eastern game were just as emphatic in their cries of “let’s play basketball,” as they were when they were cheering on their teams. It’s a simple rule change that could greatly benefit the high school game. While many may believe that the lack of a shot clock now allows the kids more time to get better shots, by adding a shot clock, you’ll most likely get better basketball during crunch time.

And to be honest, the shot clock doesn’t even need to be as long as the one in the college game. In my opinion, 35 seconds is too long at that level. A 30-second clock could at least allow a team a couple more minutes before having to foul, while it also prevents teams from holding onto the ball.

Leagues and other sports organizations are always looking for ways to improve their respective sports. Implementing a shot clock is the next step that the PIAA needs to take if it wants to continue growing high school basketball in the state. It can’t hurt the game, even if it’s a failed concept that doesn’t wind up working.

But, for now, just like myself and all the fans did at the end of the Northeastern-vs.-Eastern game two weeks ago, we must sit around and wait for some sort of action to happen.

MANCHESTER — The West York girls’ basketball team is good.

Real good.

Like No. 8 in the state good, according to the latest PIAA Class AAA rankings by Pennlive.com.

Most nights the Bulldogs are resting their starters early in the second half after piling up significant leads. But Tuesday night figured to be a little different, when West York traveled to take on York-Adams Division II rival Northeastern.

The Bobcats were one of the few teams so far this season to push the Bulldogs well into the second half of a contest. And for a half, it looked like the game would come down to the wire.

But almost within the blink of an eye, the Bobcats found themselves under a pretty big proverbial snowball. Leading by just six at halftime, the Bulldogs used a 19-3 blitz through the first four minutes of the second half to put things away. The resulting 58-39 triumph for West York (17-0 overall, 11-0 Division II) also clinched at least a share of the division title in the process.

“They just play really well together,” Northeastern coach Bill Novak said of the Bulldogs. “They’re disciplined and they play very good defense. And we didn’t stick to our defensive technique and didn’t rebound the ball very well.”

The Bobcats had trouble all night finding any flow offensively, outside of junior standout Jordyn Kloster (game-high 20 points and 11 rebounds). And for much of the first half the same could be said of the visitors, who were led by Kari Lankford’s 19 points.

But then came the first few minutes of the third quarter, when a 23-17 edge was turned into a comfortable 42-20 margin. Lankford scored six of her points during that blitz while fellow standout guard Emily Wood (13 points) added another five.

“Kari and Emily do their thing,” Novak said. “Kari is an excellent point guard and there’s not much more to really say.”

The Bobcats tried to exert pressure on the West York guards in hopes of causing turnovers. And it worked, especially in the first half when the Bulldogs committed nine miscues. But in that third quarter those traps quickly turned into transition points that helped balloon the deficit.

“The third quarter was big,” West York coach Darrell Wildasin said. “I think we kind of dissected their defense there in the third quarter and that was a big difference.”

The other key factor was limiting Northeastern standout Payton Hauck. The Boston University recruit was held in check all night, scoring just seven points while being guarded by Lankford most of the night. That scoring output was actually three points less than she scored in the team’s first meeting back in December when Hauck was under the weather.

“Our defense was very solid,” Wildasin said. “Especially in that third quarter. And it’s more than just our two guards defensively. We’re more than just a two-guard team. Sure, they’re the engine that drives the car, but we have a lot of other pieces that can do things too.”

While the victory was significant for both Wildasin, who is in his first year guiding the Bulldogs, and the program as a whole in clinching another division title, there wasn’t much celebration to be found. In fact, it was just business as usual for the squad, which was A-OK with their coach.

“We talked about different goals at the beginning of the year and some of them are coming into play now,” he said. “So it’s becoming a little more visual at this point. But we’re still pretty focused on what we’re doing.”

GIRLS’ BASKETBALL

Red Lion 40, South Western 28: At Hanover, the Lions led 22-17 at the half and went on to capture the York-Adams Division I victory. Amy Maciejewski and Courtney Dimoff led the Lions with 16 points apiece. Red Lion improved to 8-1 in the division and 14-4 overall.

Can anyone knock off West York?: The biggest storyline throughout the York-Adams League so far this season has to be the undefeated West York girls’ basketball squad.

Under first-year head coach Darrell Wildasin and his new system/style of play the’Dogs have soundly routed nearly every foe they’ve faced. The latest victim was a highly-touted Fleetwood (12-5 overall) squad that was crushed by a 62-24 margin this past weekend at the Red Lion Showcase.

The closest anyone has come to knocking off the Division II leaders was Dallastown – who trailed by 19 points before closing to within seven (50-43) – back on Jan. 12.

So can the Bulldogs (16-0) run the remainder of their schedule en route to a perfect regular season?

Perhaps.

Sporting both the league’s No. 1 ranked offense per game (62.4 points a game) AND the No. 1 ranked defense (32.9 points a game), the ‘Dogs appear to have just two opponents left on their schedule that could cause them any worry – Northeastern and York Catholic.

The Bobcats played them fairly close in their first showdown this season, a 54-41 setback on Dec. 23. Most of the Northeastern starting five was playing under the weather that night, especially senior guard Payton Hauck, who scored just 10 points. Despite all of that, Hauck and company were able to make it a five-point contest after three periods before fading badly late.

So there’s no reason to believe that the ‘Cats, at full strength, couldn’t push the ‘Dogs given a second opportunity. They will get just that Tuesday when they host West York at 7:30 p.m.

Perhaps the bigger obstacle for West York, however, is the nine-time defending District 3-AA champs, York Catholic, and Coach Kevin Bankos. Under Bankos, the Irish are as prepared as any team out there in terms of getting ready for an opponent (see 50-37 victory over Delone Catholic last Friday).

While being prepared doesn’t guarantee them a victory, we are absolutely sure the Irish are more likely to pull off the upset than get clobbered by 30-plus points. That showdown is slated for Saturday evening at West York at 6:30 p.m.

Wildasin and Bankos: Speaking of Bankos and the Irish, there’s no one that could better relate to the situation that Wildasin finds himself in than the York Catholic coach.

Bankos, who took over the reins of the program from Andy Bria after the school’s run to the PIAA Class AA title in 2006, led the Irish to an undefeated record in his first season en route to the second of three-straight state titles for the program.

So far Wildasin has been following in those footsteps without a hitch. After taking over a program that has maintained a high level of success – including five straight trips to the PIAA Class AAA playoffs – under former coach Jon Shultz, Wildasin appears to have put it all together with his Bulldogs.

Will Wildasin’s story end with a state title like Bankos?

Probably not, as Class AAA is a much more difficult trek than Class AA, but can’t classify it as impossible however.

Chasing 1,000: So far this season three girls – Biglerville’s Rebecca Isaac, West York’s Kari Lankford and York High’s Chyna Steele – have surpassed the 1,000 career point milestone.

Two others will almost certainly join those three this week. Hanover junior guard Soukaina Tracy is 19 points away while York Catholic senior Hannah Laslo needs 21 points. Both have multiple games scheduled this week providing them a great opportunity to get there.

Dallastown senior Amari Johnson is looking to join that group as well, but may not do it until next week. Johnson, a Rhode Island recruit, just surpassed the 900-point plateau this past week and needs 58 points to get there.

Three others are less certain candidates. Hauck, a Boston University recruit, is 132 points away while West York senior guard Emily Wood needs 160. Red Lion junior Courtney Dimoff is 181 points shy, but Coach Don Dimoff’s daughter at least has the luxury of another year of eligibility to get there if she doesn’t this season.

Power Rankings, Ver. 3.0:

1. West York (16-0 overall, 10-0 Div II) – What else can you say about this team? They score a bunch and they prevent you from scoring many. It’s a pretty sound wayto win games. Definitely the odds-on favorite to cut down the nets at York College next month.

2. Red Lion (13-4 overall, 7-1 Div I) – The Division I leaders stubbed their toes two weeks ago with losses to Central York and Holidaysburg, but rebounded nicely in defeating Spring Grove and Harrisburg this week. Tests to close out the season at New Oxford and at Dallastown await.

3. York Catholic (15-2 overall, 7-1 Div III) – The Irish got their revenge against parochial playmate Delone Catholic Friday, likely ensuring co-division champs. A victory over West York would certainly answer any questions whether this team is worthy of wearing gold medals in Hershey next month.

4. Dallastown (13-5 overall, 7-2 Div I) – The Wildcats certainly have what it takes to be great – three standout starters. Johnson, Katie McGowan and Debria Hendricks can cause opponents problems all over the court. The problem? Making sure they are all in sync, which has been an issue in their five setbacks.

5. Delone Catholic (15-4 overall, 8-1 Div III) – Back-to-back losses to York Catholic and Berks Catholic this past weekend have the Squirettes reeling. Can Farliegh Dickinson recruit Maddy Comly carry her team to the promised land?

6. New Oxford (13-4 overall, 6-3 Div I) – The Colonials certainly haven’t crumbled against a tough schedule that includes a tough loss to unbeaten and state-ranked Boyertown this weekend at the Red Lion Showcase. While nobody doubts their defense, ranked No. 2 in the league, is for real the question is whether they have enough offense to be a contender.
