As the upcoming season for the Skipjacks Hockey Club approaches, the team is seeking host families for its under-16 and under-18 players.

The Skipjacks are a Tier I AAA hockey team that will play out of the York City Ice Arena. Skipjacks players come from all over the country and the team is in need of less than 10 host families for this season.

The York City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a deal to rent out space and ice time at the York City Ice Arena to a youth hockey club, a deal that looks to bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars to the city over the term of the lease.

The Maryland-based Skipjacks hockey club will rent the ice rink out during the day, when it normally sits empty, so officials gladly received the idea of bringing in a large sum of money while losing little.



Midway through the first period of Wednesday night’s Central Penn Interscholastic Hockey League Tier 3 game, Susquehannock and Lampeter-Strasburg were tied, 1-1.

Then, over the course of the final 28 minutes, the Warriors (10-6-2) outscored L-S (2-15) 8-0, securing the 9-1 victory at York City Ice Arena, capping off their regular season in stylish fashion.

Nicolas Prego scored a hat trick for Susquehannock, while Kaden Glatfelter added two goals. Prego’s three-goal night was part of a larger four-point performance, matching Elijah Emenheiser’s four-point performance. Overall, nine different Warriors registered at least one point.

Susquehannock tied rival Central York/Dallastown with 22 points in the regular season, but will enter the Tier 3 playoffs as the No. 4 seed because of a lower winning percentage. The Warriors will wind up facing the league’s top team, MSMCC, in the first round of the playoffs.

The Susquehannock and Central York/Dallastown ice hockey teams don’t have much choice when it comes to being rivals.

As the only two remaining York County teams in the Central Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League, it was essentially an arranged marriage.

However, on Wednesday night in a Tier 3 battle between the two York County teams, close proximity wasn’t the only thing the two sides had in common.

The Central York/Dallastown ice hockey team continued its unbeaten streak to open the season on Wednesday night.

The combined team knocked off Lampeter-Strasburg, 8-3, at Lancaster Ice Rink, improving its record to 4-0 on the year and moving into first place in the Central Penn Interscholastic Hockey League Tier 3 standings.

After Central York/Dallastown allowed the first goal of the game, the offense woke up and stole the show. Reid Delbiondo scored twice in the final minutes of the first period to give the visitors a 2-1 advantage after the opening 16 minutes. From then on, Central York/Dallastown never looked back.



It was only a handful of years ago that there were eight York-area high school teams participating in the Central Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League.

Due to many factors, however, that number has dwindled steadily.

Now, only two county squads remain — Central York/Dallastown and Susquehannock, with both playing in the CPIHL’s lowest level, Tier 3.


The combined team of Central York and Dallastown shut out Middletown 5-0 to kick off the Central Penn Interscholastic Hockey League Tier 3 season on Monday at the York City Ice Arena.

After leading just 2-0 after two periods, the combined team scored three times in the final period to open up the game. Collin Young scored twice in the third period to go along with his second-period goal, completing his hat trick. Anthony Tranchitella had a goal and three assists to lead all players with four points, while Remington Batt had a goal and two assists. Griffin Long only needed to make 12 saves to earn the shutout.
