Saturday's York-Adams area high school sports round-up


It was a very disappointing day for the seven York-Adams League programs competing in the PIAA playoffs Saturday.

Of the seven squads only one - the Susquehannock boys' soccer team - prevailed. For the other six clubs, the offseason begins.

Susquehannock boys' soccer: The Warriors were the only team to advance to the PIAA semifinals after defeating District 7 champion South Fayette by a 1-0 margin in the Class AA quarterfinals.

Kaleb Lippy scored with under five minutes remaining in regulation to send the York-Adams Division II runners-up into the semifinals Tuesday against South Park at a location and time yet to be determined.

This improbable run by Susquehannock, the third-seeded team from District 3, has the Warriors just two games shy of claiming the program's second state championship in seven years. The previous one was won back in 2008.

Gettysburg boys' soccer: The York-Adams League champions were the odds-on favorites to claim the PIAA Class AA title. Entering the District 3 playoffs, the Warriors dominated every team they played.

But an upset loss to Lancaster Mennonite in the district finals sent Gettysburg into the state playoffs on a bit of tailspin. After defeating Lansdale Catholic in the first round, the Adams County power fell by a 2-0 margin to District 11 champion Northwestern Lehigh.

A season filled with promise and hope came tumbling to a crashing, and very disappointing, end for Gettysburg.

Susquehanock girls' soccer: The magicial ride for the Warrior girls ended Saturday against Mercyhurst Prep in a PIAA Class AA quarterfinal clash.

Neither team could score during regulation or two overtimes, setting up a pivotal penalty kick session. Mercyhurst prevailed 5-4 in the PKs thereby ending Susquehannock's season.

York Catholic girls' soccer: The Irish girls were unable to get anything going in their semifinal showdown with Warrior Run, who claimed a 3-0 triumph.

No additional game information was available as of press time.

York Catholic girls' volleyball: The Irish were unable to overcome a powerful North Star team in the PIAA Class A quarterfinals, falling in three games, 25-22, 25-15, 25-21.

Emily Hoffman led York Catholic with 11 kills while setter McKenna Walker dished out 24 assists to go with six digs, a kill and an ace.

Delone Catholic girls' volleyball: The York-Adams League champs found themselves up against a great foe Saturday against Villa Maria Academy in a PIAA Class AA quarterfinal clash.

The District 1 champs swept the Squirettes, 25-17, 25-22, 25-18 to advance to the semifinals against District 3 champion Berks Catholic.

No stats were available as of press time.

Central York girls' volleyball: Having already defeated Cumberland Valley in the District 3 semifinals, the Panthers appeared to be in a good shape to reach the PIAA Class AAA semifinals.

But the past will only get you so far and the York-Adams Division I champs found that out as the Eagles avenged their five-game loss to Central by sweeping the Panthers, 25-15, 25-22, 25-20.
