York Catholic took a 27-0 lead at the half and never looked back en route to a 35-6 rout of Delone Catholic in a York-Adams League Division III football game on Monday night.

Hakeem Kinard led the Irish by passing for two touchdowns and running for another two in the battle of parochial schools. Kinard combined for 192 yards of offense (112 rushing, 80 passing) for the game.

Dan Yokemick caught two touchdown passes for 47 yards, while on defense, Scott Bartkowiak blocked a first-quarter punt that was picked up and returned for a 2-yard touchdown run by Jack Burnside.

For the visiting Squires, standout running back Matt Guiffrida ran for 59 yards and one touchdown. It was his first game back after missing several games with a leg injury.

York Catholic improved to 3-3 in the division and 4-3 overall, while Delone fell to 2-4 in the division and 3-4 overall.

The game could have a major impact on the District 3-A playoff hopes for both teams. Delone entered the game No. 3 in the district power ratings, while York Catholic was No. 5. Only the top four teams make the playoffs.
