The Red Lion High School field hockey team bounced back from one of its most disappointing losses with one of its most satisfying victories.
Wednesday, the Lions saw their York-Adams Division I championship hopes take a devastating hit with a 5-0 setback vs. Central York.
Friday, the Lions rebounded in a big way, edging arch-rival Dallastown 2-1 in overtime.
In the process, Red Lion gave a major boost to Central York's hopes of winning an outright D-I crown, while also delivering a major blow to Dallastown's hopes of a D-I title.
Central York (10-5 overall) is now alone in first in D-I at 9-1, while Dallastown (11-5 overall) dropped to 9-2 in the division. The Lions (10-6 overall) are third at 8-3.
The Panthers have three games left that will count in the division standings vs. Spring Grove (3-11 overall), Susquehannock (8-7 overall) and Dover (2-10 overall). If Central sweeps those games, it will take the outright D-I championship.
