FRIDAY Division III games
BERMUDIAN SPRINGS (1-0, 2-0) AT EASTERN YORK (1-0, 1-1), 7 P.M. Bermudian Springs' signature is its relentless running game. The trio of Colton Dull, Ryan Markle and Briton Shelton has accounted for 628 rushing yards in two games. Eastern counts on the running of Clayton Miller (6.3 yards-per-carry average). The Golden Knights' defense is coming off a strong showing last week against York Suburban, when it held the Trojans to 127 total yards.
HANOVER (0-1, 0-2) AT BIGLERVILLE (0-1, 1-1), 7 P.M. Scott Cooper and Joe Hurda will get plenty of touches for Biglerville. Cooper is averaging 7.8 yards a carry and Hurda comes in at 6.6. Hanover, meanwhile, features two of the league's leading receivers: Dylan Krieger (12 receptions for 163 yards) and Ian Brown (10 catches for 77 yards). Nighthawks' quarterback Brady Goodfellow has connected on 25 of 45 pass attempts for 257 yards.
DELONE CATHOLIC (1-0, 2-0) AT LITTLES TOWN (1-0, 2-0), 7 P.M. Both offenses have been unstoppable so far. Littlestown is averaging 45.5 points a game, and Delone Catholic is racking up 37.5. Dustin DeGroft keys Littlestown's running game. The senior has carried the ball 38 times for 208 yards (5.5 average). Delone will counter with the power running of Matt Guiffreda (53 carries for 422 yards, 8.0 average). The winner of this backyard rivalry will retain a share of first place.
FAIRFIELD (1-0, 2-0) AT YORK CATHOLIC (0-1, 1-1), 7 P.M. Fairfield, which won just one game all of last year, is averaging a sparkling 59.5 points a game. The Green Knights combine the running of Nick Mort (314 yards, 13.7 average) with the passing of Chase Flickinger (182 yards, two touchdowns). York Catholic's defense, gashed last week by Bermudian Springs, will seek to regroup and help the Fighting Irish get back on the winning track. York Catholic quarterback Hakeem Kinard is off to a terrific start with 348 passing yards and three TD passes. Qua'Shawn Grooms, Miles Elliott and Scott Bartkowiak each have impressive yards-per-catch averages of 33.0, 21.7 and 20.3, respectively.
DALLASTOWN (2-0) AT PENN MANOR (2-0), 7 P.M. So far, so good for the Wildcats and Comets. It will be interesting to see which team comes out of this inter-county clash at 3-0. Penn Manor features the one-two running punch of Charlie Bell and LeVonta Jones, who each eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark in last week's 28-14 victory over Lampeter-Strasburg. Quarterback Tanner Erisman is 14 of 20 for 164 yards on the season. Dallastown will answer with a well-balanced offense of its own. Rob Catchings is averaging nine yards a carry (23 for 207), and quarterback Andrew Henry has delivered 315 passing yards so far. Henry's favorite target, Malik Lewis, has grabbed eight passes for 274 yards (34.3 average). Oh yes, Dallastown's defense has given up just one touchdown this season.
KENNARD-DALE (0-2) AT EAST PENNSBORO (2-0), 7 P.M. It's another tough assignment for Kennard-Dale coming off a 54-20 loss to Milton Hershey. Rams' running back Mike Young has been effective carrying the ball with 137 yards (5.3 average). Quarterback Kyle Amrhiem has provided 124 passing yards and two TD tosses. Quarterback Joshua Stambaugh (220 passing yards, four TD passes) and running back Garrett Stuter (337 yards) lead East Pennsboro's offense. The Panthers own victories over Waynesboro (47-0) and West Perry (28-21).
WAYNESBORO (0-2) AT NEW OXFORD (1-1), 7 P.M. New Oxford looks to Wes Beans and Aaron Zinneman for rushing yards. The two have teamed for 353 yards this season. Colonials' quarterback Anthony Lippy has passed for 194 yards and two touchdowns. Waynesboro made an amazing comeback last week against Chambersburg. After falling way behind 33-0, the Indians responded with 28 unanswered points, but they were unable to recover an onside kick late in the fourth quarter. Waynesboro quarterback Nathan Toney passed for three touchdowns and ran for another score.
SHIPPENSBURG (0-2) AT NORTHEASTERN (0-2), 7 P.M. Both teams are hungry for a victory following close losses last week. Shippensburg fell to Camp Hill, 30-26, and Northeastern sustained a tough 8-7 loss to Columbia. Running back William Burt is a player to watch for Shippensburg. Burt has carried the ball 55 times for 275 yards (5.0 average). Northeastern quarterback Marcus Josey has rushed for 109 yards and passed for 231 yards and a touchdown.
LAMPETER-STRAS BURG (0-2) AT RED LION (0-2), 7 P.M. Lampeter-Strasburg quarterback Collin Shank (23 of 48 for 321 yards and two touchdowns) will test Red Lion's secondary. The Lions will seek to establish a running game to blend with the passing of Blake Cahill. The Red Lion quarterback has thrown for 432 yards and three touchdowns.
SOUTH WESTERN (1-1) AT CENTRAL DAUPHIN (1-1), 7 P.M. South Western will take on a Mid-Penn Conference opponent for the third straight week. The Mustangs look to Dillon Thomas (324 rushing yards) and Tyler Sterner (325 passing yards, six TD tosses). Central Dauphin banks on the running tandem of Malachi Holmes (111 yards) and Raleigh Sirb (92 yards) and the passing of Nate Dickey (17 of 36 for 206 yards). The Rams were tied with powerful Bishop McDevitt at halftime last week, 14-14, before the Crusaders pulled away in the second half to win, 34-14.
WEST YORK (0-2) AT SPRING GROVE (1-1), 7 P.M. Spring Grove head coach Russ Stoner will direct the Rockets against his alma mater. Stoner will make sure that Jeff Delaughter gets more than his share of carries. In two games, Delaughter has shredded opposing defenses for 380 yards. West York is still trying to find its way following the graduation of 24 players from last year's 13-1 team. The Bulldogs have only one touchdown to their credit so far in 2013.
MILTON HERSHEY (1-1) AT SUSQUEHANNOCK (1-1), 7 P.M. Milton Hershey, a 54-20 winner over Kennard-Dale last week, travels to take on another York-Adams Division II opponent. The Spartans feature the multi-talented Tre Brown (nine catches for 291 yards and four touchdowns and eight carries for 56 yards and two touchdowns). Milton Hershey quarterback Shamon Walker is 29 of 51 for 611 yards and five TDs. Susquehannock's Bryan Kerr has rushed for 215 yards and passed for 120 yards and two touchdowns.
HARRISBURG (0-2) AT YORK HIGH (1-1), 7 P.M. Harrisburg's record is a bit misleading. The Cougars' losses were to Bishop McDevitt and Wilson, which are ranked No. 1 in the PennLive District 3 rankings in Class AAA and Class AAAA, respectively. Darian Davis-Ray leads Harrisburg in rushing yards with 217 and is second in receptions with five. York High banks on the play-making abilities of quarterback James Way. The junior is 12 of 27 for 141 and three touchdowns in the passing department, and he's carried the ball 24 times for 141 yards (5.9 average). The Harrisburg-York rivalry dates back to the early 1970s, when Harrisburg High School was formed from a merger of two high schools, John Harris and William Penn.
HEMPFIELD (1-1) AT CENTRAL YORK (1-1), 7 P.M. Central played well in the first half against perennial power Cumberland Valley last week before losing, 21-7. The Panthers will parlay the running of Breaun Randle and Dylan Hose with Hose's passing in a bid to get back in the winning column. Hempfield, after crushing Lampeter-Strasburg, 40-7, on opening weekend, fell to another perennial power, Manheim Central, last Friday night, 52-19. The Black Knights average 131.5 rushing yards and 151 passing yards a game. Quarterback Michael Edwards is 10 of 17 for 216 yards and three touchdowns. Devin Washington is the leading ground gainer with 174 yards.
SATURDAY Division III game
YORK SUBURBAN (0-1, 0-2) AT YORK TECH (0-1, 0-2), 10 A.M. York Tech's Calvin Savary will test York Suburban's run defense. The 5-10, 210-pound senior running back is averaging nearly six yards a pop (5.7). Suburban struggled to establish a running game against Susquehannock and Eastern, but Trojans' sophomore quarterback Thomas Merkle has passed for 187 yards.
