In the other quarterfinal at Hanover High School, York Suburban (11-6-1) came away with a 3-2 victory over Biglerville (10-8-1). Laken Kinard scored twice for the Trojans, while Morgan Shealer also found the back of the net. Ava Peterson and Courtney Smith scored for the Canners, but it was York Suburban who advanced, setting up a third meeting with Susquehannock this season.

At Red Lion, senior Sarah Beck's penalty stroke lifted Dallastown (11-6-2) to a 2-1 victory over New Oxford (8-6-3) in the afternoon leg of the doubleheader. In the nightcap, Central York (8-10-1) rolled to a 4-0 win over Kennard-Dale (11-8), bringing the defending tournament champion Panthers back into the semifinals.

Both Wednesday semifinals will be at Central York, with Susquehannock-York Suburban at 5 p.m. and Central York-Dallastown following at 7. The final will be played at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, also at Central York.
