As the District 3 football battles begin next Saturday, here’s a look back at last year’s Manheim Central District 3, Class 5A championship win.
It was cold, below freezing cold but that did not stop the red hot Manheim Central Barons from winning their second District 3, Class 5A title in two years and 18th overall.
It was a lopsided 48-14 win for the undefeated Barons.
The Cocalico Eagles came out strong dominating the first 8 minutes of the first quarter. But then the Barons put the game into another gear.
Quarterback Evan Simon threw 5 touchdown passes in the game. Three in the first half to essentially put the game out off reach.
Barons’ running back Jake Harbach scored on an 11-yard run and Tyler Flick scored on a 3-yard run.
Cocalico’s QB Noah Palm scored both TDs for the Eagles.
The Barons (13-0) will now get ready for the District 1 champion Upper Dublin (12-1) in the PIAA Class 5A semifinals next week.
