Dallastown's Ethan Sutton and York Suburban's Evan Eberhardinger put together attention-grabbing performances this past Saturday.
The seniors displayed sweet-shooting strokes, combining for 75 points in two non-league games.
Sutton's line in the scorebook was: seven 3-point baskets, one 2-point basket and a near perfect 15-of-16 from the foul line for 38 points.
Eberhardinger, meanwhile, finished with five 3-pointers, seven 2-pointers and 8-of-12 from the foul line for 37 points.
Lots of points, although, both players would have gladly traded some of them for a victory.
Dallastown lost a hard-fought, overtime game to Hempfield, 83-77, and Suburban fell to perennial power Steel-High, 94-71. The Yorkers were down just six points at halftime (45-39), but the Rollers used a 24-13 scoring advantage in the third quarter to take a commanding lead.
League playoff races: The losses weakened the overall records, but they didn't affect either team's place in the York-Adams League standings. The Wildcats and Trojans are still in the playoff mix in their respective divisions.
Dallastown is in a little better spot with an 8-3 mark in Division I. The Wildcats are in third place behind York High, 11-0, and South Western, 9-2. Northeastern leads Division II with a 7-3 record.
The two division winners earn playoff berths, along with the teams with the next two best league winning percentages. Dallastown has league games remaining against York High, Central York, Spring Grove and South Western.
York High, the defending York-Adams Tournament champion, is the only team that's hasn't lost to a league opponent this season.
Suburban, meanwhile, is 7-3 in Division III trailing Bermudian Springs (9-2) and Eastern York (9-2) by 11/2 games and Susquehannock (8-3) by a half game. Delone Catholic, at 9-2, has a solid grip on Division IV.

Like Division I and II, the winners of Division III and IV gain spots in the eight-team tournament along with the next two teams with the best league winning percentages.

Dover has wrapped up the Division II crown and a playoff spot. The next three best records are all in Division I: Dallastown, 9-2; West York, 9-2; and Red Lion, 8-3. Susquehannock is still in the chase at 7-4 in Division II.
The four representatives from Division III and IV are, for the most part, set. Eastern York and Kennard-Dale are 8-2 and 7-3, respectively, in Division III, and York Catholic and Delone Catholic, are 10-0, and 8-1, in Division IV.
