Manheim Central Rolls Past Ephrata

Manheim Central solidified its control over the Lancaster-Lebanon League's Section Two with a convincing 79-7 [boxscore] thumping of Ephrata on Friday night at War Memorial Field.

Behind running back Tyler Flick's three rushing touchdowns on four carries, and a typical stingy defense, the 7-0 Barons put it to the winless Mounts early and often. Manheim Central led by two touchdowns after just one play from scrimmage.

Mounts' Fine Finish

Champions find a way to win.

Down a goal from the 38th minute on and growing increasingly frustrated, Lancaster-Lebanon League Section Two girls soccer champion Ephrata scored twice in the last 11 minutes of the match, turning back Elizabethtown’s upset bid and finishing its league schedule undefeated.

Mounts senior holding midfielder Hayley Sheehan tied the match off a free kick in the 70th minute.

That seemed to spark the Mounts, who finished the regular season with a 14-0 mark, 17-1-1 overall.

Spartans Roll to Win

Although its provenance likely goes back further, Mark Twain, and before him British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, are credited with the phrase, “There’s lies ... and then there’s statistics.”

Such a glance would also single out the Spartans as the top offensive team in the league.

Here, statistics did not lie.

Garden Spot rolled to 426 yards of offense and took advantage of three deadly turnovers to handle Ephrata, 49-7 [boxscore] on homecoming night.

Mounts Ride Rally in 2nd Half to Win

As the season winds down and the victories add up, the target the Ephrata girls soccer team carries on its collective back grows ever larger.

“Certainly, they’re the team to beat,” Lampeter- Strasburg coach Emily Lebo said, “and you can’t think that you’re up one, that it means anything.”

Up a goal at halftime Wednesday afternoon, the Pioneers appeared primed to stop the Mountaineers’ 13-match win streak, as well as extend their own seven-game streak — a streak that began in the wake of a 2-1 loss to these same Mounts on Sept. 14. And on this night, the Mounts would again walk away with a 2-1 victory.
