The Central York football team is on a serious roll.

The Panthers won their fifth straight game on Sunday afternoon with a 52-0 triumph at Spring Grove.

The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but a transformer problem played havoc with the lights at Spring Grove, forcing the game's postponement until Sunday.

The delay didn't bother the Panthers, who improved to 6-1 overall and 4-0 in York-Adams Division I. Spring Grove fell to 2-5 overall and 0-4 in Division I.

Central has now outscored its four Division I foes, 200-21.

Things will likely get more difficult down the stretch for Central. It's next three games are at home vs Northeastern on Oct. 11, at Dallastown on Oct. 18 and at home vs. York High on Oct. 25.

York High (5-2 overall) has shared the last two D-I championships and is currently tied for first in D-I with the Panthers at 4-0. Northeastern is 6-1 overall and 3-1 in D-I.

Central is chasing its first D-I title since 2013 and its first under current head coach Josh Oswalt.

The games vs. Northeastern and York High will also have major District 3 playoff implications. Central is currently fourth in the District 3 Class 6-A power ratings, while Northeastern is No. 2 and York High is No. 4 in the district 5-A power ratings.
