District 3, Class 4A Playoffs:
Friday’s District Three, Class 4A quarterfinal matchup saw the No.1 seed York Suburban playing host to Lampeter-Strasburg the No.8 seed.
A great way to defeat a number one seed is to race to a 21-3 lead at the half and hold on for dear life.
And that’s exactly what the Pioneers (9-3) did.
Alex Knapp put the Pioneers on the scoreboard with an 85-yard run in the first quarter. Then he ran 9-yards to put the Pioneers up 14-0 after the first quarter.
Jacob Kopelman ran an 84-yard kickoff return in the 2rd quarter and L-S led at the half 21-3.
They held off two York Suburban TDs in the 3rd quarter and finished with the 27-18 win.
Next Saturday they will find themselves in the semifinals against Bishop McDevitt in Harrisburg.
