High school roundup: New Oxford field hockey knocked out of postseason

The Colonials were the final York-Adams League team standing in the District 3 field hockey playoffs.

Staff Report

New Oxford field hockey is out of the district tournament after being the last York-Adams League team still standing in the sport.

At Manheim Central, the Colonials were unable to find the back of the net and dropped the District 3 Class 2A consolation semifinal to the Barons, 1-0.

The lone goal of the match came on the fifth corner of the game for the Barons, when Kiley Hosler found the back of the net from teammate Ella Brubaker at the 1:26 mark of the third quarter.

With the loss, New Oxford finishes its 9-8-3. The Colonials were the No. 14 seed in the Class 2A tournament and upset division rival Susquehannock, 1-0, in the opening round. A 1-0 loss to Twin Valley sent New Oxford to the consolation round. With six teams reaching the state tournament, the Colonials would have punched a ticket with one more victory.
