Following are capsulized looks at this weekend's York-Adams League football games.
The first record behind each team is its league record and the second record is its overall mark.
YORK HIGH (0-1, 3-3) AT DALLASTOWN (1-0, 5-1), 7 P.M. Dallastown mixes the running of Robert Catchings (687 yards) with the passing of Andrew Henry (51-for-80 for 721 yards, four touchdowns and only one interception). The Wildcats also feature one of the league's leading defenses, with a yield of just 12.3 points a game. York High counts on the play-making abilities of quarterback James Way, who's rushed for 543 yards and passed for 854 yards and eight touchdowns.
RED LION (1-0, 3-3) AT SPRING GROVE (0-1, 4-2), 7 P.M. Spring Grove will seek to bounce back from its heart-breaking 27-26 loss to Central York last week. The Rockets will face a Red Lion team on the rise. The Lions, after losing their first three games, have won their last three. Red Lion quarterback Blake Cahill has delivered 1,085 yards of offense (823 passing and 262 running), and the Lions' Kenny Holloway has rushed for 307 yards. Spring Grove's Jeff Delaughter, the program's all-time leading rusher, has racked up 816 yards on only 134 carries (6.1 average). Quarterback Seth Hildebrand, the league's top-rated quarterback, is a multi-purpose threat with 972 passing yards and 313 rushing yards. Logan Hall (29 receptions for 504 yards) is Hildebrand's favorite target.
CENTRAL YORK (1-0, 4-2) AT SOUTH WESTERN (0-1, 2-4), 7 P.M. With Dallastown coming up next week, Central can't afford to overlook South Western this week. Mustangs' quarterback Tyler Sterner has connected with his receivers for 845 yards and 11 touchdowns. Dillon Thomas is South Western's leading rusher with 445 yards, but Thomas hasn't played in the last three games because of an injury. Central running back Breaun Randle is having an outstanding season. The 5-foot, 9-inch, 170-pound senior needs just 50 rushing yards to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark. Panthers' quarterback Dylan Hose is 37-for-75 for 570 passing yards to go with 233 yards carrying the ball.
WEST YORK (1-0, 1-5) AT DOVER (1-0, 4-2), 7 P.M. The Bulldogs and Eagles have met 37 times in the Route 74 North rivalry, with West York holding a slim 19-18 edge. The key to victory for the Bulldogs is finding a way to contain Dover's running attack, which is churning out 260 rushing yards a game. The Eagles' Isaiah Green, Logan Ambrose and Dorran Ledbetter have combined for 1,144 ground yards. West York's offense will seek the same balance it displayed last week, when it broke into the win column with a 34-20 victory over Susquehannock. Josiah Mincer (409 yards) keys the Bulldogs' running game, and quarterback Ross Campbell is coming off a 162-yard, two-TD performance.
NORTHEASTERN (0-1, 0-6) AT SUSQUEHANNOCK (0-1, 1-5), 7 P.M. A young Northeastern team will seek to break into the victory column, while Susquehannock will bid for its first victory since the opening weekend. Sammy Miller (405 rushing yards and 167 receiving yards) and Bryan Kerr (478 passing yards and 309 rushing yards) are the top offensive threats for the Warriors. Northeastern's Marcus Josey has passed for 743 yards.
NEW OXFORD (1-0, 4-2) AT KENNARD-DALE (0-1, 1-5), 7 P.M. New Oxford is definitely in the conversation when it comes to discussing contenders for the York-Adams Division II title. The Colonials' non-division losses were to Bermudian Springs and Dallastown, who are a combined 11-1. Wes Beans and Aaron Zinneman fuel the running game for New Oxford. Beans will check in at Fawn Grove with 795 yards, and Zinneman will enter with 416 yards. K-D can also call on a talented running back. Mike Young has accumulated 856 yards so far for a 6.3 average.
FAIRFIELD (3-2, 4-2) AT BERMUDIAN SPRINGS (5-0, 6-0), 7 P.M. Fairfield comes in averaging 37.2 points a game, but the Green Knights will be challenging a defense that is giving up a measly 10.0 points a contest. Fairfield's Nick Mort is 92 yards away from 1,000 rushing yards. Bermudian bludgeons defenses with its running back trio of Colton Dull, Ryan Markle and Briton Shelton. The three Eagles have rushed for 1,439 yards.
BIGLERVILLE (0-5, 1-5) AT EASTERN YORK (3-2, 3-3), 7 P.M. Eastern's running tandem of David Livelsberger and Clayton Miller has racked up 975 yards. Biglerville, trying to snap a five-game losing streak, counts on Joe Hurda for rushing yards. Hurda has carried the ball 96 times for 506 yards.
DELONE CATHOLIC (2-3, 3-3) AT YORK CATHOLIC (2-3, 3-3), 7 P.M. Delone Catholic's defense is coming off a terrific showing last week when it held unbeaten Bermudian Springs to a near standoff, losing 7-0. This week, the Squires will try to contain York Catholic's talented quarterback, Hakeem Kinard, who's passed for 996 yards and 10 touchdowns and rushed for 458 yards. Delone quarterback Jake Wiles is 45 of 88 for 617 yards and five touchdowns in the passing department.
HANOVER (1-4, 1-5) AT YORK SUBURBAN (3-2, 3-3), 7 P.M. York Suburban will surely test a Hanover run defense that has struggled this season. Ch'aim Smith averages 4.8 yards a carry for the Trojans, who balance their attack with Tom Merkle's passing. Merkle has thrown for 716 yards and six touchdowns. Hanover features two of the league's leading receivers in Dylan Krieger (32 receptions) and Ian Brown (20 receptions).
LITTLESTOWN (5-0, 6-0) AT YORK TECH (1-4, 1-5), 10 A.M. Littlestown scores a lot of points and gives up very few. The Thunderbolts are first in scoring at 40.3 points a game and second in points allowed at just 10.2 a game. Dustin DeGroft (657 yards) and Lucas Reynolds (513 yards) lead Littlestown's ground game. Thunderbolts' quarterback Trevor Hildebrand is 48-for-83 for 810 yards and six touchdowns in the passing department. York Tech is no slouch on offense, either. Calvin Savary is averaging 5.5 yards a pop (117 for 648) and Dalmar Dickson is averaging an impressive 7.9 yards a carry (55 for 435).
