A big first half from the Central York Panthers helped propel them to the district semi-finals with a 26-14 win in Week 11.
The Panthers made a surprise run to the Championship game last season, but this year it seems to be the expectation. Manheim Township was keen to play spoiler. The ball was quite literally bouncing in the Panther’s favor. Opening kickoff bounced off a Manheim Township player and was recovered by Central York. That turns into a 4th and goal from three yards out, Priubla on the keeper makes it 6-0 Panthers. Next drive for Central York and Pribula just needs one pass to Treyshawn Smith to make it 12-0. Manheim Township tried to get things going on offense but was met with turnover after turnover. Pribula would add another keeper to make it 19-0 at the half. Blue Streaks would try to make something happen in the second half but came up short, 26-14.
