After Northern Lebanon’s sterling victory against Lancaster Catholic last week to win the Section 3 Title, the Vikings were riding an 8-game winning streak. They were looking for their first playoff victory ever. It wasn’t to be.
For while the Pioneers of Lampeter Strasburg limped into the playoffs having dropped 3 of their last 4 games, they found their stride Saturday night and defeated the Vikings 34-19. Northern Lebanon led at one point 19-14.
Pioneers’ Cam Niemeyer ran for two touchdowns and QB Todd Shelley threw for two more.
LS (7-4) will play Bishop McDevitt next Friday evening. Northern Lebanon ends the season with a 9-3 record.
