Following are capsulized looks at this weekend's York-Adams League football games.
FRIDAY Division I
SPRING GROVE (4-0, 7-2) AT SOUTH WESTERN (2-2, 5-4), 7:30 P.M. Spring Grove, which has already earned a share of the Division I title, can grab the whole thing with a victory over the Mustangs. The Rockets' offense has torched Division I opponents for 168 points in four games (42 a game average). James Delaughter (1,206 yards) heads up the Spring Grove ground game, and quarterback Matt Runge supplies the balance with 1,150 passing yards and 12 touchdowns. South Western counts on the running of Dillon Thomas, who's amassed 1,251 yards.
RED LION (0-4, 1-8,) AT DALLASTOWN (1-3, 3-6), 7 P.M. The records aren't always a barometer of what to expect in this neighborhood rivalry. Red Lion, whose roster is loaded with underclassmen, hasn't been able to develop a consistent running game, but Lions' quarterback Blake Cahill has passed for 1,137 yards. Dallastown displayed terrific offensive balance in last week's 49-34 shootout loss to Spring Grove, rushing for 215 yards and passing for 274. Andrew Henry has delivered 1,005 passing yards and nine TD passes this year for the Wildcats, and Rob Catchings has rushed for 874 yards.
NEW OXFORD (3-1, 4-5) AT WEST YORK (4-0, 9-0), 7 P.M. West York will seek to close out a perfect
SUSQUEHANNOCK (1-3, 1-8) AT DOVER (1-3, 3-6), 7 P.M. Susquehannock will attempt to finish the season with two straight victories following last week's breakthrough against Kennard-Dale. The Bryan Kerr-to-Steven Nalls passing combination has worked for the Warriors. Kerr has completed 69 passes, and Nalls leads the team in receptions with 33 for 422 yards. Dover, coming off a 22-15 loss last week to New Oxford, features the running back combination of Isaiah Green and Logan Ambrose, who have teamed for 1,040 yards.
BIGLERVILLE (7-1, 8-1) AT BERMUDIAN SPRINGS (8-0, 9-0), 7 P.M. Bermudian Springs wants the division title all to itself. Biglerville desires a piece of it. That's what's at stake when the Adams County neighbors clash on the Eagles' field. The Canners, averaging 40.0 points a game, will be the irresistible force against the immovable object, a Bermudian Springs defense that is holding opponents to just 4.9 points a game. Oakley Fissel, Joe Hurda and Jordan Wenk have teamed for 2,207 Biglerville rushing yards. Zach Stroup (977 yards) and Tristan Sponseller (857 yards) make up Bermudian Springs' one-two running punch.
HANOVER (0-8, 0-9) AT DELONE CATHOLIC (6-2, 6-3), 7 P.M. The Nighthawks and Squires will clash for the 80th time. Delone leads the series, 46-38-5, and, barring a monster upset, will add to its victory total this year. The Squires feature five players who have rushed for at least 243 yards, and a quarterback, Brett Smith, who's passed for 913 yards and 14 touchdowns. Hanover's Brady Goodfellow has thrown for 1,151 yards and six touchdowns. Jose Gonzalez is the Nighthawks' leading receiver with 33 catches for 379 yards.
LITTLESTOWN (5-3, 6-3) AT FAIRFIELD (1-7, 1-8), 7 P.M. Littlestown quarterback Dustin Crouse has passed for 958 yards and 11 touchdowns and rushed for 334 yards. Dustin DeGroft (706 yards) and Ryan Rickell (581 yards) are the top rushers for the Thunderbolts, who are aiming to lock down a District 3 Class AA playoff spot. Fairfield broke a 37-game losing streak last week, but the Green Knights will be hard pressed to make it two straight victories this week. Thomas Bollinger is averaging 6.7 yards a carry for Fairfield (131 carries for 882 yards).
YORK CATHOLIC (4-4, 4-5) AT YORK SUBURBAN (4-4, 5-4), 7 P.M. Both the Fighting Irish and the Trojans have plenty of offensive firepower, so this game could be a high-scoring one. York Catholic combines the passing of James Dougherty (2,340 passing yards and 20 touchdown passes) with the running of Matt Lehr (1,019 yards). York Suburban will counter with the running trio of Isaiah Randall, Marquese Dillon and Jaime Nixon-Alark, who have teamed for 1,461 yards. Dillon has also passed for 674 yards and seven touchdowns. Nixon-Alark, a sprinter on the track team in the spring, can turn any touch (run, reception, return) into a touchdown.
SATURDAY Division II
NORTHEASTERN (3-1, 6-3) AT KENNARD-DALE (0-4, 0-9), 2 P.M. Northeastern, with a victory, can complete its best regular season since starting its varsity football program in 2008. The Bobcats' Daniel Adams has already eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards this season with 1,176. Northeastern quarterback Alec Miller has passed for 849 yards and 11 touchdowns. Dan Hare and Mike Young are Kennard-Dale's leading rushers with 556 and 465 yards, respectively.
EASTERN YORK (3-5, 3-6) AT YORK TECH (2-6, 2-7), 2 P.M. Alex Cooley, the York-Adams League's all-time leading rusher, will close out his remarkable career. The Eastern star has compiled 5,508 rushing yards (just 12 in his freshman year) and scored 70 touchdowns (all in the last three seasons). His career yards-per-carry average is a sparkling 8.2 York Tech's Calvin Savary, who's a junior, is having an outstanding season. He's second in the league in rushing yards to Cooley with 1,380.
