When the Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Association all-state soccer teams were released recently, the York-Adams League had six players recognized.

Three boys and three girls from the Y-A League earned the all-state honors.

On the boys’ team, the three Y-A League divisional players of the year were selected. They were Central York senior Nick Starr, Susquehannock senior Jason Weger and Hanover senior Diego Aguilar.

The 2017 York-Adams League boys’ soccer season was filled with a lot of memories.

From West York’s huge upset of Central York in the league playoffs, to the crowing of a new champion in Susquehannock, the list of accomplishments was many.

While those examples were of team success, players across the two counties also created memorable plays and moments along the way.

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.

HERSHEY — When the story of the Susquehannock boys’ soccer team’s 2017 season is told, it will be filled with many memories.

Things like second-half comebacks, an unbeaten run to the York-Adams League Division II title, as well as a dominating performance to win the league playoff crown.

Unfortunately for the Warriors, that story is being told sooner than they would have liked.

With an upset loss in the York-Adams League playoffs well in its rear-view window, Central York proved it’s rebounded quite nicely and ready for more postseason play on Tuesday night, Oct. 24.

The Panthers, who were stunned by West York in the league playoffs, cruised to a 5-1 victory over league rival Dallastown in the first round of the District 3 Class 4-A boys’ soccer tournament at Central. The victory sends the No. 1-seeded Panthers into the quarterfinals against No. 9 seed Cumberland Valley (11-7) on Saturday at a site and time to be determined. CV beat No. 8 seed Warwick (11-6-2) on Tuesday, 2-1.

GLEN ROCK — Susquehannock’s players and coaches knew better than to pay much attention to the seeds heading into the District 3 Class 3-A Boys’ Soccer Tournament.

On paper, the second-seeded Warriors were favored over 15th-seeded Garden Spot, but Susquehannock head coach Brett Maxwell expected a stiff challenge from the Lancaster County club.

“Last year, they (Garden Spot) came into the tournament at 6-9-2, and they ended up defeating Hershey in the first round,” Maxwell said. “They’re a tough 15 seed.”
