GLEN ROCK — Ever since Gettysburg joined the York-Adams League in 2014, the boys’ soccer rivalry with Susquehannock has been intense.

It didn’t lessen any on Tuesday evening.

In game that totaled 31 fouls between the two clubs, it was clear there was respect, but little love for each other. For the first time all season, the York County Warriors found themselves trailing, courtesy of a Logan Carbaugh goal for the visitors just under 10 minutes into play.

With Coach Brett Maxwell’s team in the unusual position of playing catch-up, the emotions sometimes got a little heated.

In any sport, confidence is key.

It’s an obvious statement, but one that was on full display Thursday at Spring Grove.

An early-season battle of York-Adams Division I contenders saw a contrast of confidence. Dallastown displayed a budding sense of belief in itself as it recorded a dominant 4-0 decision against the Rockets.

It marks the second straight shutout for a Wildcat defense after posting a 5-0 victory against Northeastern on Tuesday.

Like most teams, the Dallastown girls’ soccer program used the early part of its schedule to test itself against teams it might face come district playoff time.

However, that didn’t help the Wildcats’ overall record. They dropped three of four games against non-league teams to start the season.

RED LION — Taking over the program this year was not an extremely difficult decision for Red Lion girls’ soccer coach Megan Mahon.

Mahon is an eighth-grade teacher in the Red Lion district, so making the change from Spring Grove to Red Lion made a lot of sense.

It doesn’t hurt that Mahon inherited some real talent in the move, too.



Spring Grove erased a 1-0 halftime deficit en route to a 3-1 boys’ soccer victory at New Oxford on Wednesday.

Peter Foerster scored New Oxford’s only goal with Ronaldo Lupian adding an assist.

No stats were reported for Spring Grove.



Susquehannock 6, Dover 0: At Dover, the Warriors rolled past the home team. No other details were reported.


West Shore Christian 7, Christian School of York 3: At Christian School of York, Kendis Butler led the Crusaders with two goals. Teammate Mekenzie Smith also scored one goal.

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).



You can’t start a state playoff game better than the York Catholic girls’ soccer team did on Tuesday night at Scranton High School.

It took the Fighting Irish all of 19 seconds to put their stamp on their PIAA Class A first-round match against District 2 champion Lakeland, one that turned into a 4-1 victory for the York County squad.
