Biglerville : 4 Bermudian Springs : 1

Delone : 1 Littlestown : 0
The Squires came out strong in the first half dominating possession and scoring 11 minutes into the game. J.P. Groves #4 dribbled up the sideline with a give-and-go to Angello Salazar who gave a quick pass to the middle to Ethan Sevison who took a couple of steps and struck it into the back of the net.

In the second half, the Squires were a bit off their game and even had a penalty in the box called on goalie Nik Holtz setting up a penalty kick. Holtz then made a fine, diving, save that kept the Bolts off the scoreboard.

With one second left on the clock, Angello Salazar made a cross, and Will Holtz ran behind the goalkeeper for the goal to win it 3-2. The Squires once again got down in the first half by a goal and had to come back. Salazar started the Squires scoring off with a goal off an indirect kick with a 1-1 halftime score. A penalty kick goal gave the Greyhounds a 2-1 lead early in the 2nd half. Five minutes later, Nolan Kruse had a perfect crossover to Salazar for the tying 2-2 goal.

Bermudian Springs 2, Fairfield 1
Bermudian Springs eked out a 2-1 win over Fairfield, despite being reduced to 10 men for the final 16 minutes of the game. The action-packed match saw Bermudian Springs dominate in terms of shots, corners, and saves, but it was a nail-biting finish that had everyone on the edge of their seats.

The first half saw Bermudian Springs take a total of 14 shots compared to Fairfield’s two. However, it wasn’t until there were just over three minutes left in the half that the deadlock was finally broken. Dominyc Speelman, a junior, found the net with an assist from senior Colton Kehr, who delivered a perfect cross into the box. This gave Bermudian Springs a 1-0 lead going into halftime.

The second half provided more excitement and tension, starting with a goal from Fairfield’s freshman, Michael Phelan, who successfully converted a penalty kick with just over 19 minutes left in the game.
Adding to the drama, Bermudian Springs found themselves in a precarious position when junior Liam Zepp received a red card with 16:50 left in the game, leaving the team with just ten players for the remainder of the match.

Despite being a man down, Bermudian Springs continued to press for the winner. It finally came when Colton Kehr, who had assisted the first goal, scored an unassisted goal with just 1:08 left on the clock, sealing a hard-fought 2-1 victory for his team.

Mid Penn Golf Match Colonial Division

In what turned out to be a dazzling display of golfing prowess, Northern High School secured its undefeated season record by finishing first in yesterday’s Mid-Penn Colonial Division golf match at Range End.

The match featured a stunning performance from Tyler Fortney of Waynesboro, who shot a day’s best of 73, but it wasn’t enough to knock Northern from the top spot.

Northern finished with an impressive team score of 318, maintaining their flawless season at 6-0. Hot on their heels was Greencastle, finishing with 332, and Waynesboro was close behind with a score of 336. Shippensburg trailed closely, tallying a 337. Gettysburg and Big Spring finished with 365 and 373, respectively, while James Buchanan rounded out the leaderboard with a score of 393.
Northern’s Garrett White shone with a round of 77, the second-best individual score of the day. He was joined by teammates Logan White and Josh Hoover, who both shot an 81, rounding off an exceptional day for Northern.

Cooper Swam of Greencastle wasn’t far behind White with a score of 79, leading his team to the second-place finish. Swam was followed by teammates Conner Wilhide, Camden Eby, and Nathan Hanks, who scored 83, 85, and 85, respectively.

Although Waynesboro’s team didn’t clinch a win, Tyler Fortney had the best individual round of the day with an outstanding score of 73, signaling him as a player to watch this season.

For Gettysburg, it was a day of highs and lows. Zachary Sentz led the team with a 91, closely followed by Landon Blocher, who shot an 89. The team’s performance leaves room for improvement as they currently sit with a 2-4 season record.

Big Spring saw a promising performance from Noah Williams, who shot an 82, but the team as a whole could not break the barrier to climb higher than the sixth position on the leaderboard. James Buchanan, still in search of their first win, finished last with a team score of 393.
