Seven York-Adams League field hockey teams have earned District 3 playoff berths.

Katie Doherty led the exhuberant celebration when the Dallastown field hockey team belted out the familiar refrain to their traditional team song on Thursday night.

“We are family …” the Wildcats shouted repeatedly in unison to the tune.

Dallastown was enjoying its fourth York-Adams League tournament title in the past five seasons. This one, a 5-0 victory against Susquehannock on the turf at Bermudian Springs High School.

MANCHESTER — The bar for success is set pretty high for the Dallastown field hockey program.

With each new York-Adams division and league title, the pressure on the current club to live up to those high expectations can become heavy.

Such has been the case with the 2016 edition of the Wildcats. After capturing the league title a season ago, anything less than that would be a disappointment for Coach Jeri Myers’ outfit.

MANCHESTER — While Dallastown and Bermudian Springs entered the York-Adams League field hockey playoffs as the favorites to meet up in the championship contest, little attention was given to Division II champion Susquehannock.

There was even talk that the Warriors didn’t deserve entry into the event.

With that background, it’s not surprising that Susquehannock was focused on gaining a measure of respect.



Delone Catholic has advanced to the District 3 Class 2-A girls’ tennis semifinals.

The Squirettes will face Lancaster Catholic on Wednesday at 3:15 p.m. back at Hershey Racquet Club.



YORK DISPATCH STAFF REPORTCentral York vs Dallastown field hockey

The third tiebreaking procedure had to be used to determine the field for the York-Adams League Field Hockey Tournament.

Bermudian Springs and Gettysburg finished tied for the Division III championship at 12-1. Only the four division champions advance to the league tournament.

The first tiebreaker is head-to-head competition, while the second tiebreaker is the results of games vs. teams in their own division, from top to bottom.



The Central York field hockey team scored twice in the first half and then exchanged goals with Susquehannock in the second half to earn the 3-1 home win on Thursday.

The Panthers got goals from three separate goal scorers, with Abby Lamison and Mikayla Sommer scoring in the first half, while Breann Craley added one in the second half. Kyra Heap added two assist for Central. The Warriors’ lone goal was scored by Lauren Wojcik.

Former Dallastown field hockey standout Amanda Strous never attended West York High School.

That doesn’t mean she wasn’t a part of the Bulldog community.

Her mother, Crystal, is a teacher at West York Middle School. That’s where a number of the players on the varsity field hockey and boys’ soccer teams got to know her, before they eventually found their way to the high school.

So, when news broke this summer about the tragic murder of Amanda Strous, the West York students were there to support the Strous family in any way that they could.

The West York field hockey team will play host to its fourth annual Kilts for a Cause game at 4 p.m. Wednesday against the school’s boys’ soccer team.

The game will benefit the Amanda Strous Scholarship Fund. The charity was chosen to shed light on women’s issues, mainly violence against women. Strous is a former Dallastown High School field hockey standout who was murdered during the summer in Charlotte, North Carolina.



Dallastown blanked South Western 2-0 on Tuesday in Hanover to clinch the outright York-Adams Division I field hockey crown.
