It didn’t take long for a consensus candidate to emerge to take over Englar’s spot. Ashton Hirsch, who is Kevin’s daughter and formerly Ashton Bankos, was already familiar with the program after being a varsity assistant the past couple of years.

All-Star boys' soccer

For nearly all of the York-Adams League boys’ soccer players that participated in the Senior All-Star game Wednesday, Nov. 15 at Red Lion High School, the annual showcase was a chance to put some bitter disappointments behind them.

For the first time in many years, no York-Adams League squad advanced beyond the District 3 semifinals. That list includes teams such as Central York and league-champion Susquehannock, who were both favored to make it at least that far by virtue of their high seeds.
