New Oxford is now alone in first place and has just one divisional match remaining at York Suburban on Monday. The Colonials have clinched at least a tie for the title. A win on Monday will give New Oxford its first-ever outright divisional crown.

K-D, meanwhile, grabbed a 4-1 victory over visiting Gettysburg in a pivotal D-II contest. The defending D-II champion Rams improved to 8-0, while Gettysburg fell to 5-2.
