In 2015, the York-Adams League Division I girls’ soccer race may have been the fall’s most compelling title battle.

In 2016, it might be even be more competitive.

A season ago, the Division I race between Central York, Dallastown and Northeastern came down to the very end of the season, with two points separating the three teams. Considering that, in soccer, teams get three points for a win and one for a draw, that meant that just one win separated third-place Northeastern from claiming the Division I crown instead of Central York over the course of the 12-match league slate. The next closest team to the bunch was Spring Grove, nine points behind.

Maddie Hill was a fighter in everything she did.

The 19-year-old Dover woman fought three separate battles with cancer. She fought to keep her job as a lifeguard even after getting sick. She fought for a normal life like every other kid.

After 11 years of fighting, Hill lost her final battle Wednesday night.

Scoring 100 career goals in high school girls’ soccer is no easy feat.

To do so, players must average better than a goal a game for their entire career, avoid injuries and, more often than not, play every game for four full seasons.

Dover’s Brook Firestone and York Catholic’s Liz Johnson were able to reach that milestone this season. Not surprisingly, the seniors were announced recently as the York-Adams League Division II and Division III Players of the Year, respectively, by the league coaches.

Northeastern’s Sawyer Patrick, a defender/midfielder, was named of the Division I Player of the Year.
The Coaches of the Year are Spring Grove’s Meghan Mahon (Division I), Susquehannock’s Pat Brubaker (Division II) and Hanover’s Ralph Doxsey (Division III).

HERSHEY — A huge game against a tested, high-quality opponent worked against the York Catholic girls’ soccer team in the opening half of Thursday night’s District 3-A championship game.

Trinity, the defending district and state champion, dominated play in the first 40 minutes, scoring two goals while taking six shots on goals to zero for York Catholic, which was making its first appearance in a district final.

The Fighting Irish played much better in the second half, firing the same number of shots on goal (three) as Trinity, while earning four more corner kicks than the Shamrocks.

MANCHESTER — The Susquehannock girls’ soccer players knew they were in for a challenge when they squared off against Northern York in a District 3-AA semifinal contest at Northeastern High School on Monday.

The No. 1 seeded Polar Bears entered the contest with 10 shutouts en route to an impressive 18-2 record. But the strength of the Northern team was its offense, which entered with 96 goals, and it was the Bears’ offense that most concerned Warriors coach Pat Brubaker.
