Susquehannock, York Catholic clinch outright York-Adams boys' soccer championships
The boys’ soccer teams from Susquehannock and York Catholic clinched outright division titles over the weekend.
Susquehannock sewed up another Division II crown with a 3-0 triumph at West York on Saturday. It is the Warriors' fourth straight division title.
York Catholic, meanwhile, clinched the D-III title with a 5-2 victory at Biglerville on Saturday.
Susquehannock now stands at 11-0-0 in D-II with just one division match remaining at Gettysburg on Thursday. York Suburban is second in D-II at 8-2-0, but the Trojans can’t catch the Warriors no matter what happens the rest of the season.
Susquehannock is No. 1 in the District 3 Class 3-A power ratings.
York Catholic is 10-0-1 in D-III with just one match remaining at second-place Bermudian Springs (8-2-0) on Thursday. Even with a win on Thursday, however, Bermudian couldn’t catch the Fighting Irish. In York Catholic’s win over Biglerville, the Irish were led by Kayden Macris (two goals), Colin Smith (goal, assist) and Jon Yinger (goal, assist).
The Irish are No. 3 in the District 3 1-A power ratings.
In the D-I boys’ race, Northeastern remained in control on Saturday with a 2-1 win at Red Lion. Brian Warrender and Alex Afata scored the Bobcats’ goals, while Caleb Snyder had two assists.
Northeastern is now 10-1-0 with three D-I matches left, while Dallastown is second at 8-3-1. Northeastern has two matches left vs. Dover (5-4-2) and one against Spring Grove (4-5-2). A win in any of those three matches would clinch the outright crown for Northeastern, which is No. 3 in the District 3 4-A power ratings.
Dallastown beat Dover on Saturday, 2-0, behind goals from Sam Patton and Zander Leik. Dallastown is No. 11 in the District 3 4-A power ratings. Only the top eight in the final 4-A power ratings will make the district playoffs.
Girls' races: In girls’ action, Central York (D-I) and Gettysburg (D-II) clinched ties for division titles. Central earned a 4-0 win over South Western on Saturday to improve to 12-0-0. Jasmine Parker had three goals and Sarah Crusse had one.
Dallastown is second in the division at 10-2-0 after a 5-2 victory over Dover on Saturday.
Central needs just one more division win to clinch the outright crown. The Panthers are No. 2 in the District 3 4-A power ratings. Dallastown is No. 7.
In D-II, Gettysburg is 10-0-0 after a 2-0 win vs. Eastern York on Saturday. Susquehannock is 8-2-0 after a 2-1 victory over West York (6-4-0). Gettysburg has games left vs. York Suburban (5-5-1) and Susquehannock this week. A win in either game will give Gettysburg the outright crown.
The D-III girls' race is still completely undecided. Fairfield leads at 9-1-1, followed by York Catholic (9-2-0) and Bermudian Springs (7-1-1).
