For three York County teams, road to District 3 lacrosse finals goes through Millersville

  • There are four York County teams still alive with hopes of winning a District 3 title.
  • Three of those teams have semifinal battles scheduled for Penn Manor High School in Millersville.

The road to the District 3 lacrosse finals will run through Millersville — at least for three of the four York County schools still alive in the postseason title race.

The district semifinal lacrosse sites have been released, and the Susquehannock and Kennard-Dale girls and the York Catholic boys all have semifinal battles set for Penn Manor High School in Lancaster County.

The other York County team still alive in the D-3 lacrosse title chase are the Susquehannock boys, and they'll travel to Hershey for their semifinal.

The Susquehannock and Kennard-Dale girls, who have battled all season long for York-Adams League supremacy, will compete in a D-3 Class 2-A semifinal doubleheader at Penn Manor on Tuesday.

The Warriors (18-3) captured the Y-A regular-season title. They're the top seed in the D-3 2-A field and will meet fourth-seeded Wyomissing (16-4) at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Penn Manor. Wyomissing beat Susquehannock earlier in the season, 14-7.

That same night at 7 p.m. at Penn Manor, the third-seeded Rams (18-2) face second-seeded Hershey (18-2). K-D, the Y-A playoff champion, beat Hershey earlier in the season, 22-7.

The semifinal winners will meet for the D-3 title on Thursday at Lower Dauphin Middle School. The semifinal losers will meet Thursday at a site and time to be determined.

In boys' 2-A semifinal action on Monday, fourth-seeded York Catholic (16-4) faces top-seeded Palmyra (19-1) at 5 p.m. at Penn Manor. The Fighting Irish claimed the Y-A playoff crown. 

Third-seeded Susquehannock (15-4) will battle second-seeded Trinity (16-2) in the other 2-A boys' semifinal at 5 p.m. Monday at Hershey.

The 2-A boys' final is set for Wednesday at Central Dauphin Middle School. The third-place game is also Wednesday, at a site and time to be determined.  

All four boys' and girls' semifinalists have already sewn up PIAA state berths.
