The York College women’s basketball team cruised to their fourth straight triumph on Wednesday with a 77-50 victory at St. Mary’s College in St. Mary’s City, Maryland.

The Spartan men also beat St. Mary’s, 88-84. It was also their fourth straight triumph.

In the women’s game, Susquehannock High School graduate Katie Wagner paced the Warriors with 18 points, six rebounds, three steals and two assists.

With as much pain as Dallastown senior Drake Pew was in during and after his 182-pound bout against Spring Grove’s Jared Barley on Tuesday night, things looked bleak.

As it turns out, the news about his injured left knee wasn’t as bad as feared. Of course, that doesn’t mean things are golden, either.

Pew suffered a Grade 2 sprain of his MCL, he confirmed to The York Dispatch on Wednesday. He underwent an MRI on Wednesday morning, where the diagnosis was determined. He also said he’s expected to miss “a few weeks,” based on what he saw as the approximate recovery time while doing his own research on the injury. That could impact his postseason availability

GLEN ROCK — There’s a lot to be excited about for the Susquehannock girls’ basketball team.

Guard Jayla Galbreath can knock down shots from outside the arc. Forward Jaden Walker has a nice blend of inside-outside game. So too does Anna Mahan. Tyler Williams has a knack for finding loose balls and rebounds. And Taylor Tannura gives it her all on the defensive end every night.

When payback time arrived, the Spring Grove boys’ basketball team seized the opportunity.

The Rockets, who lost to York High earlier this season on their home floor, turned the tables on Wednesday night by earning a 71-66 victory on the Bearcats’ court.

“We’re a little bit more seasoned, we’re getting used to how we have to play to be effective,” Spring Grove head coach James Brooks said. “The guys came out, and they were effective either by defending or limiting their fast break.”

Over the course of any long winning streak, there are bound to be times when a team doesn’t play its best, yet somehow finds a way to win.

Riding a 16-game streak of its own heading into Wednesday night’s York-Adams League Division I showdown at Dallastown, Northeastern couldn’t have played much worse in the first half. As a result, it found itself in the rare spot of trailing at halftime, 30-26. The Bobcats, however, showed the character that’s gotten them to this point of the season unblemished and rallied, knocking off the Wildcats, 71-63, pushing their undefeated record to 17-0, including 9-0 in division play. The loss for Dallastown drops it to 10-4 and 5-4.



The Central York ice hockey team easily took apart Elizabethtown on Wednesday night, winning 10-0 in a Central Penn Interscholastic Hockey League Tier 2 game at York City Ice Arena.

The Panthers (9-4-1, 19 points) struck for four goals in the first period and then five more in the second to open up a commanding lead and then put the game to rest with a goal in the third.

EMIGSVILLE — It’s safe to say that the Central York girls’ basketball team wasn’t feeling too great Friday evening.

Entering the final quarter with a seemingly comfortable 11-point lead on Dallastown, the Panthers suffered an unlikely melt down. The Wildcats outscored Central 18-6 in the final frame to claim a one-point upset victory.
