The problem every Northeastern opponent faces when it plays the Bobcats isn’t if a big scoring run is going to occur.

It’s a matter of when.

For Central York on Tuesday, Dec. 19, that run happened right at the start of the second half and the only thing that ended it was the final buzzer.

Northeastern led by five at the break, but held the Panthers to just 14 second-half points, turning a highly-anticipated York-Adams League Division I boys’ basketball showdown into a lopsided 59-42 home victory.

K-D 1,000-point scorers

The folks down in Kennard-Dale can sometimes feel like the forgotten stepchildren of the York-Adams League.

You can hardly blame them.

Tucked away in largely-rural southeastern York County, the Ramsā€™ athletic programs often toil in the shadows cast by the more high-profile urban and suburban schools in the densely-populated York area.

Reading at Central York girls' basketball

EMIGSVILLE ā€”Ā A new season always brings a certain amount of changeĀ to a high school athletic program.

No program stays the same, normally because ofĀ injuries, graduation or improvement by younger players.

The Central York girlsā€™ basketball team is certainly not exempt from that reality.

Northeastern vs Delone Catholic during Bobcat Tip-Off

It’s no big secret that tickets to Northeastern boys’ basketball games have become hot commodities in recent years.

It looks like that trend will continue for the 2017-2018 season.

That should comeĀ as no big surprise, given the success of the Bobcats’ program in the past couple of years.

92-year-old recalls West York's first championship

For a 92-year-old man, Don Peterson still gets around pretty well.

When he walks for an extended period of time, he needs a walker to aid him. When he’s just milling around his apartment at Normandie Ridge in West Manchester Township, however, Peterson does just fine without any assistance.
