Following are capsulized looks at this weekend's York-Adams League football games.
FRIDAY Division I
SOUTH WESTERN (0-1, 3-3) AT CENTRAL YORK (0-1, 3-3), 7 P.M. The Mustangs and the Panthers will seek to bounce back following losses last week. South Western counts on the running of Dillon Thomas, who's third on the rushing leaders chart with 811 yards. Central will counter with the league's top-rated passer, Corey Hartz. The 5-8, 157-pound senior has passed for 1,206 yards and 15 touchdowns. Darian Hampton and Marquis Fells have combined for 47 catches for the Panthers. Fells also averages 5.9 yards a carry.
SPRING GROVE (1-0, 4-2) AT RED LION (0-1, 1-5), 7 P.M. The Rockets are thinking title following their victory over Central. Spring Grove quarterback Matt Runge has accounted for a total of 1,027 yards on the ground and in the air, and Jeff Delaughter has delivered 561 rushing yards to the Rockets' attack. Red Lion's young cast has been outscored 213-76 while playing an extremely strong schedule. The Lions' junior quarterback, Blake Cahill, has thrown for 819 yards and four touchdowns.
DOVER (1-0, 3-3) AT WEST YORK (1-0, 6-0), 7 P.M. The Eagles and Bulldogs resume the Route 74 North rivalry, with the series even at 18 victories apiece. Dover, which scored a victory in last year's game, is clearly the underdog this year. The Eagles' running backs, led by Isaiah Green and Logan Ambrose, are averaging an impressive 5.6 yards a carry, but this week, they'll go against a West York defense that is holding opponents to just 80.8 rushing yards a game. The Bulldogs' offense is in the capable hands of quarterback Brandon Kinneman, who's passed for 661 yards and nine touchdowns and rushed for 261 yards. Zach Smith, the league's leading receiver with 35 catches for 567 yards, is Kinneman's favorite target.
KENNARD-DALE (0-1, 0-6) AT NEW OXFORD (0-1, 1-5), 7 P.M. Mike Young and Dan Hare are an excellent one-two running combination for Kennard-Dale with 750 yards between them. The Rams have played well at times and are aiming to break into the winning column. Wesley Beans averages 5.9 yards a carry for New Oxford, and Colonials' quarterback Anthony Lippy has passed for 359 yards.
SUSQUEHANNOCK (0-1, 0-6) AT NORTHEAST ERN (1-0, 4-2), 7 P.M. Northeastern's Daniel Adams is having a terrific year. Only three York-Adams running backs have more rushing yards than Adams, who's compiled 739 yards on 131 carries (5.6 average). Bobcats' quarterback Alec Miller has passed for 493 yards and six touchdowns. Susquehannock, which was missing three starters last week because of injuries, has been outscored 222-57.
BERMUDIAN SPRINGS (5-0, 6-0) AT FAIRFIELD (0-5, 0-6), 7 P.M. Fairfield has been much more competitive this season, but the Green Knights are outmatched this week. Bermudian Springs' lockdown defense is holding opponents to a paltry 4.8 points a game. Fairfield's Thomas Bollinger and two Bermudian players, Zach Stroup and Tristan Sponseller, have almost identical rushing totals. Bollinger has racked up 562 yards, Stroup has 561 and Sponseller has 560.
EASTERN YORK (2-3, 2-4) AT BIGLERVILLE (4-1, 5-1), 7 P.M. Biglerville, coming off an emotional overtime victory over York Catholic, features the highly productive running back trio of Oakley Fissel, Joe Hurda and Jordan Wenk, who have teamed for 1,360 yards. Speaking of rushing yards, Eastern's Alex Cooley is the league's all-time leader with 4,686 yards, including 1,516 this season.
YORK CATHOLIC (3-2, 3-3) AT DELONE CATHO LIC (3-2, 3-3), 7 P.M. This is one of the most interesting games of the weekend. Along with the matching records, the Fighting Irish and Squires have scored a lot of points. York Catholic is averaging 32.8 a game, and Delone Catholic is scoring at a 30.3 points-per-game clip. Fighting Irish quarterback James Dougherty has connected for 1,817 passing yards and 15 TD passes, and Matt Lehr has rushed for 586 yards. The Squires' Nick Braun and Lance Reneker have teamed for 495 ground yards. Delone quarterback Brett Smith has passed for 557 yards and eight touchdowns.
YORK SUBURBAN (3-2, 4-2) AT HANOVER (0-5, 0-6), 7 P.M. Suburban's Isaiah Randall, Marquese Dillon and Jamie Nixon-Alark possess the speed to turn any touch into a touchdown. Nixon-Alark is averaging 7.9 yards a carry, Randall is at 7.2 and Dillon is at 5.5. Brad Irvin (5.6 yards a carry) and Ian Brown (5.8 a carry) are Hanover's top rushers. The Nighthawks' Brady Goodfellow has passed for 745 yards and four touchdowns.
YORK TECH (2-3, 2-4) AT LITTLESTOWN (3-2, 4-2), 7 P.M. York Tech running back Calvin Savary needs 66 yards to reach 1,000 for the season. Savary's teammate, Dalmar Dickson, has supplied 522 rushing yards. The Spartans have struggled to stop the run, and that could be a problem against the Thunderbolts, who are averaging 262.3 rushing yards a game. Dustin DeGroft, Ryan Rickell and Dustin Crouse have accounted for 1,120 of Littlestown's total.
