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.

SPRING GROVE — For the past three months or so, Central York’s Bre Sgrignoli and Dallastown’s Carsyn Gold were adversaries on the soccer field.

Gold got some early satisfaction when the Wildcats handed the Panthers their only York-Adams League Division I loss in September. Sgrignoli earned some revenge last month when she scored a pair of goals in Central’s victory over Dallastown.

Thursday, Nov. 9, the two rivals were teammates for the York-Adams League Senior All-Star Game at Spring Grove High School.

GLEN ROCK — The previous two meetings this season had gone to overtime, so it made sense that this one would, too.

When it was over, Northeastern had survived for a victory in penalty kicks (4-1) over host Susquehannock in a first-round District 3 Class 3-A girls’ soccer match on Monday, Oct. 23.

The victory sends the Bobcats to the quarterfinals on Thursday, Oct. 26, when they’ll face No. 1 seed Fleetwood, which routed No. 16 Cocalico on Thursday, 4-0. The site and time for Thursday’s game have yet to be determined.
