Gazette Sports Chat – Meet CD Rams new boys b-ball coach

For the first time in a decade, the Central Dauphin Rams have a new head coach for the boys basketball team – and there’s a buzz around town that good things are in the works.

Gazette Sports Chat host Joe Gilloway recently set up shop at St. Thomas Roasters Coffee House in Linglestown to interview Wayne Fletcher.

Without a doubt, investing 20 minutes to watch this video from state to finish will be a worthwhile use of your precious time.

Why? Because Coach Fletcher is the real deal and has a plan for sometime soon putting a product on the floor that will fill the CD High gym with fans like days gone by.

By the way, this episode was recorded in late April 2018.

 

 

 

 

‘For Sale’ sign concerns youth soccer group

The appearance of a “for sale” sign at Sports City Harrisburg indoor soccer facility has raised eyebrows among parents and coaches affiliated Capital Area Soccer Association, or CASA. The area’s largest youth soccer organization has been based at Sports City for about three years.

Concerns that the group would lose its home base went through the roof when an article in Central Penn Business Journal quoted the landlord saying CASA may be leaving the facility.

CD Rams record walk-off win over Mifflin County

As Yogi Berra once opined, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” Nowhere was that more apparent than a beautiful Tuesday afternoon at Central Dauphin High School as the Rams baseball team pulled off a come from behind seventh inning victory over the visiting Huskies of Mifflin County.

After falling behind 2-0 in the top of the first, the Rams wasted no time heating up the bats. After a Scotty McManamon double, centerfielder, Troy Schreffler (2-2, 2B, HR, 4 RBI,) launched his third round-tripper of the year with a towering ball to left.

Mifflin County would add four runs in the third inning off starter Jack Clemente.

The Rams stayed relaxed and answered in the bottom of the third inning to cut the deficit to 6-5. Left fielder Anthony Dorris led off with a walk and stole second. Mifflin County then committed an error, allowing Dorris to score as Dustin Sites, who walked, and Scotty McManamon advanced. Schrefflers sacrifice fly would plate Sites, and then Christopher Smith (2-3, RBI) smacked a laser that scored McManamon.

Mifflin County pushed a run across in the sixth inning to take a 7-6 lead.

After a few missed opportunities, the Rams came to bat in the bottom of the seventh inning. McManamon led off with a walk, stole second and third to set up the tying run. After a Troy Schreffler walk and defensive indifference that allowed him to advance to second, Mifflin County played the odds and walked the hot hitting Smith to load the bases and set up a force play.

That was just what senior catcher Carson Beleski needed. After falling behind with a 1-2 count, Beleski got just enough of his bat on the pitch and the ball dribbled down the first base line as McManamon raced home. The throw to force McManamon out at home went wide of the catcher, allowing Schreffler to sprint home with the game winner!

Reilly Shafer, a freshman, entered the game in relief of Clemente and held the Huskies bats in check over the next four innings, striking out four and scattering four hits to earn his first varsity win.

The Rams are back in action on Thursday at home against Commonwealth rival Red Land at 4:15 p.m.

 

 

 

 

Rams upend Panthers in Four Diamonds baseball game

By Brian Zellers, Special to Linglestown Gazette

The third annual Four Diamonds on the diamond game took place Monday at Lebanon Valley College’s McGill Field and saw the CD High Rams outduel rival CD East High Panthers 8-0.

The Rams got on the board in the first inning scoring two runs when Scotty McManamon (3-4, 2 runs, RBI) singled home Cameron Scott, and Christopher Smith’s sacrifice fly plated McManamon.

Those runs proved to be all the offense CD would need with lights out Dylan Sims on the mound. Sims, earning his second win of the season, went six strong innings, striking out three while allowing only four hits.

Strong infield defense and great catches by outfielders Troy Schreffler and Logan Galloway helped the effort.

The Rams offense was far from done though. Carson Beleski’s towering three-run home run in the fourth inning added some insurance as did Christian Bate’s (2-2, 2 RBI) two out, two run single.

The Rams are back in action on Tuesday at home against Mifflin County and Thursday again at home against Red Land. Both games begin at 4:15 p.m.

 

 

 

 

CD boys lacrosse nails down 9th win

Story submitted by CD Rams boys lacrosse team

The Central Dauphin Rams met the Mechanicsburg Wildcats at Landis Field on Thursday night to take their record to 7-6 in the Mid Penn Conference, 9-7 overall.

Central Dauphin controlled play for much of the first three quarters, but Mechanicsburg played hard and the score stayed close. The score evened at 5-5 in the third quarter on a CD own goal off a failed defense to goalie hand off.

CD kept their composure through a very lopsided extra man ratio where Mechanicsburg was man up at least three times as much as the Rams.

The Rams got their rhythm late in the game and with five unanswered goals to finish out the game with a final score of 10-5.

Nick Koussis led all scorers with 5 G & 1A, Brenden Yingling had 2 G & 4 A, Max Anderson had 1 G, Kyle Mayberry 1 G and Derreck Hillman had 1 G.

The defense did a good job of controlling Mechanicsburg in 6 v 6 situations and David DeSousa played very solid in goal to help assure the win. Brian Madden got better at the faceoff x as the game went on and that helped CD control the game and the scoring.

CD next match up is at Cedar Crest on Monday May 7th at 4:00 p.m.

 

 

 

 

CD lacrosse nails down two victories

Story submitted by CD Rams boys lacrosse team

The Central Dauphin Rams boys lacrosse team found some good form in recent days that led to their seventh and eighth victories on the season. (8-6 overall, 6-5 Mid Penn Conference)

CD 15 – Chambersburg 6

The Central Dauphin Rams took on the Chambersburg Trojans Thursday afternoon at CD High School. The Rams were looking to bounce back after a couple close losses and did just that.

Early scores from Max Anderson and Marco Bressi helped CD jump out to a 3-0 lead.

Chambersburg answered late in the first quarter with a pair of goals to bring the score to 3-2.

It would be all Rams from there as CD went on a 6-1 run into the third quarter and would never look back.

It was a dominant offensive day for the attack group lead by Brenden Yingling with six goals and three assists. Max Anderson distributed the ball extremely well and tallied five assists to go with his two goals. Marco Bressi had four goals of his own with two assists.

Other notable offensive stats came from Noah Gerard with two goals and Mason Beaver netting a goal.

The defensive unit continues to perform well and looked very in sync down the stretch. Brian Madden had seven ground balls and Matt Strickler had four of his own.

CD 10 – Exeter Township 7

The Central Dauphin Rams continued their post-season quest with 10-7 victory over Exeter Township on Monday afternoon.

CD got out to an early 3-1 lead, but Exeter fought back to make it 5-3 at the half.

The Rams found some separation going up 8-3 at the end of the third frame. They played a smart ball-control style of offense to close out the win 10-7.

Another great performance was turned in by the defense and goalie David DeSousa as they held strong in a number of man-down situations due to penalties.

The offense was led by midfielder Kyle Mayberry (3 goals, 1 assist) and attackman Brenden Yingling (3 goals, 1 assist). Senior Noah Gerard had two goals and one assist.

CD @ Hershey High School Trojans

The Rams lost a tough game against the Hershey High School Trojans on Thursday afternoon at Hershey.

In a match-up that was close for much of the game, CD came up a little bit short in the end.

Hershey took an early 2-0 lead and never relinquished the lead although CD battled back and put on a fourth quarter run that saw them close the gap to a single goal. Down 8-7 in the final minutes of the game with a few chances to tie, Hershey held on and added a goal in the final two minutes to close it out.

The defense did a nice job of limiting a talented offensive Hershey squad. David DeSousa played big in goal with 13 saves. Faceoffs and ground balls were a battle all through the game with neither team having a marked advantage.

Brenden Yingling led the team on points with 2 goals and 3 assists; Nick Koussis added 3 goals and 1 assist. Kyle Mayberry scooped up 7 ground balls and added a goal for the team. Marco Bressi rounded out the scoring with a goal.

Penn Manor Comets @ CD

The Rams lost Saturday’s home non-conference game against Penn Manor (Millersville, Pa.) by a score of 9-7.

LOOKING AHEAD – The Rams travel to Trinity for a 7 p.m. game on Tuesday and then host Chambersburg at CD High on Thursday at 4 p.m.

 

 

 

 

CD boys lacrosse rolls over McDevitt

Story submitted by CD Rams boys lacrosse team

The Central Dauphin Rams took on the Bishop McDevitt Crusaders Tuesday evening at Landis field under the lights and in the snow. That’s correct – in the snow!

CD was wearing their throwback black uniforms in a game that was billed as a black-out, but the fourth quarter treated all the black clad fans to a white-out instead.

The Rams controlled this game from the start, leading 3-1 at the end of the first quarter, and 8-1 by the half. Final score was CD 15 and Bishop McDevitt 3.

Brian Madden was key in controlling of the game with an impressive 13-3 win/loss record at faceoffs and six ground balls.

On offense, the attack did their job and tallied 12 of the Rams goals. Defense was solid and gave the Crusaders very few good scoring opportunities. Midfield did a good job on both sides of the field and saw a marked improvement in clears.

SCORING STATS – Brenden Yingling 2G & 5A; Nick Koussis 4G & 3A; Max Anderson 4G; Marco Bressi 1G & 1A; Kyle Mayberry 2G; Derrick Hillman 1G and Matt Strickler 1A.

CD’s next game is a tough away match on Thursday, April 19, against Hershey at 4:15 p.m.

 

 

 

 

CD boys lacrosse tops Northern

Story submitted by CD Rams boys lacrosse team

The Central Dauphin Rams traveled to Dillsburg last Thursday evening for a game against the Northern Polar Bears.

This match-up has been decided in overtime that last two year with CD claiming the victory in both of those contests. Thursday night’s game looked like it might be another close game with the teams tied at 4-4 in the second quarter, but then CD put their foot on the gas and Northern could never catch up.

Final score was CD 10 and Northern 6.

In a contest where CD was called for a number of technical penalties that resulted in changes in possession and was playing man down much more than their opponents, the defense and ground ball game was key to keeping the Rams in the lead.

Ground balls are the key to possessions and often times are a good indicator of who’s going to win the game. Ground ball leaders for the night were Kyle Mayberry and Derek Krug with four each and Matt Strickler with three. David DeSousa made nine saves in the net to keep the Polar Bears from getting back into game.

Offensive production came from a lot of different positions and people in the game. Brenden Yingling had two goals and two assists; Nick Koussis had three goals; Max Anderson one goal and two assists; Derrick Hillman one goal and two assists; Marco Bressi (aka Chris Dailey) one goal and one assist; Kyle Mayberry one goal; Reese Tyndale one goal.

THIS WEEK’S GAMES

CD will play their next game against Bishop McDevitt on Tuesday, April 17, at 6:00 p.m. at Landis Field. This is a blackout game, so please dress in black for this one.

The balance of the week has an away game on Thursday at Hershey High School at 4:15 p.m., and the week wraps up with a home game at the high school on Saturday at 11 a.m. against Penn Manor out of Millersville.

 

 

 

 

Gazette Sports presents FAB15 roundball teams

By Joe Gilloway
Linglestown Gazette Sports Director

The dust has now settled on the 2017-2018 high school basketball season, and Linglestown Gazette Sports has compiled players from throughout the Mid-Penn Conference who make up their inaugural boys and girls FAB15 teams. The players were assessed on offensive and defensive prowess, along with the value they brought to their team.

Five member panels comprised of individuals with an extensive knowledge of the area’s players were assembled for both the boys and girls sides. We used very few outside sources to help compile our lists. It was sitting in gyms and watching games that helped bring about the results.

No member of the Linglestown Gazette Sports staff had any greater influence on the process than did the other panel members. Majority ruled, and in the case of ties there were thorough discussions among all members to help decide who we ultimately felt were the correct choices.

Below are the FAB15 lists and Players of the Year selections, along with lists for Honorable Mention and Futures. The Futures are players who just finished their freshman and sophomore seasons.

BOYS FAB15 –

GAVYN BARNES – 5’10” Sr. G/Carlisle – Just a flat-out athlete. Fast, quick, and strong, Barnes is one of the best in the Mid-Penn at attacking the basket. Averaged 14 points and 3 assists per game for the Thundering Herd. Up next is California University (PA) for football.

Donyae Baylor-Carroll           (Milton Hershey)
      – PennLive.com

DONYAE BAYLOR-CARROLL (Co-Player of the Year) – 5’8” Sr. G/Milton Hershey – The most dynamic guard in the Mid-Penn, B-C has the ability to stay in attack mode while also making plays for his teammates. Very adept from beyond the 3-point arc, he helped lead his team to a District-3 5A title, along with an appearance in the Mid-Penn championship game. He’ll be playing next year at PSU-Harrisburg.

WILL BOWEN – 6’6” Jr. F/Lower Dauphin – Leader of a team that put the Falcons back on the Keystone division map, Bowen averaged 15 points and 9 rebounds per game. Plenty of upside with this guy.

Sean Good (Trinity)
     – Cumberlink.com

DREW FRIBERG (Co-Player of the Year) – 6’5” Sr. G/State College – The full package, this Princeton commit can play all five positions and score from anywhere. Led his team to an undefeated Mid-Penn Commonwealth season, along with a second straight Mid-Penn title and a District-6 6A championship.

NA’REECE GLENN – 6’2” Sr. G/F /Harrisburg – Once he got his hoops legs under him after a long football season, Glenn became one of the area’s most prolific offensive forces. He averaged 13 ppg, with his biggest games coming against the best competition. 61 three-pointers was amongst the tops in the area.

SEAN GOOD – 6’11” Sr. F/Trinity – Made major contributions for his Shamrocks in all areas of the game. 13.6 pts, 9.4 rb, 2.6 asst, and 4.5 blks ranked him right up there with the best in the region in multi-category production. Heading to Lafayette, it looks like his best playing days are yet to come.

RYAN HUGHES – 6’4” Sr. G/F /Middletown – After a great four-year varsity career as a Blue Raider, and close to 600 points this season alone, Hughes will take his talents to Ursinus. Just the kind of player every coach wants to have.

GERALD JARMON III – 5’11” Jr. G/Cedar Cliff – When you think GJIII, you think excitement. His arsenal has moves for every occasion, and you rarely see the same one twice. His impact on this year’s team put the Colts program back in the Keystone division hunt.

Tim Kater (Steel-High)

TIM KATER – 6’3” Sr. F/Steel-High – This kid can flat-out shoot, and his 185 career 3-pointers prove it. Need more proof? 62% from beyond the arc, and 92% from the FT line. Just a hobby though. He’s off to West Point later this year to continue his football career as an Army Cadet and Black Knight d-lineman.

DAVON LEE – 6’0” Soph. G/Bishop McDevitt – The only sophomore on our boys list, Lee helped lead his young Crusaders team into the District-3 4A title game. He averaged 15.4 pts, 3 asst, and 3 rb per game, and was usually covered by the opponent’s best defensive player. Along with his underclassmen FAB15 honorable mention teammates, Jake Kelly and Tarajae Davis, we’ll see big things from Lee’s Crusaders in the next couple of years.

RYAN McNULTY – 6’5” Sr. F/State College – Playing alongside FAB15 Co-Player of the Year teammate Drew Friberg served McNulty very well. He contributed any way his team needed … on offense, defense, and in the transition game. His presence on the boards also allowed for Friberg to stay out of the paint to do his work on the perimeter. We already told you the success State College had as a team. McNulty played a big part.

PEDRO RODRIGUEZ – 6’3” Sr. F/Milton Hershey – Helped make the ride a whole lot smoother for FAB15 Co-Player of the Year teammate Baylor-Carroll. Was a force in his own right though, and one of the major reasons for the Spartans’ success. He and Baylor-Carroll will also share the court at the next level as PSU-Harrisburg teammates.

JOEL TORRES – 6’4” Sr. F/Chambersburg – Wore opponents down in the paint with his size, strength, and great post moves. A player his size typically isn’t known for body control and footwork, but Torres is an exception. Put up a career high 34 against Harrisburg on the way to leading his team to a District-3 6A championship.

ROYCE URENA – 6’3” Sr. G/F /Susquehanna Township – Leader of an Indians squad who stayed competitive all season in a difficult Keystone division. 16+ ppg and 85 percent from the line made Urena the go-to guy with a game on the line.

CARTER VAN SCYOC – 6’3” Sr G/F /Shippensburg – No, he’s not just one heckuva quarterback. This guy is a true high-level two-sport athlete. His ability to attack the basket went a long way towards his 18 ppg game average. VanScyoc’s next stop is just down the road at Shippensburg University. Oh, he’ll be wearing a Red Raiders helmet in Seth Grove Stadium.

JOHN McNEIL – Harrisburg

RYAN SMITH – Central Dauphin

TERELL WILLIAMS – Chambersburg

ALEY ZANGARI – Red Land

JOEY ZVORSKY – Cedar Cliff

GIRLS FAB15 –

MAYA BOKUNEWICZ – 6’0” Soph. G/State College – The only sophomore on our girls FAB15, Bokunewicz just put her second productive varsity season in the books. As tall as just about any player in the league, she has all-around skills that set her apart from most players her size. With loads of upside, expect some all-state buzz in the next couple of years.

DIAMOND BRAGG – (Player of the Year) – 5’9” Sr. G/Camp Hill – Seems like we’ve gone gray since this girl first hit the scene. Bragg has been the leader of her Lady Lions team for the past four years, and finished this season top seven in points, assists, rebounds, blocks, and steals. Leadership and versatility are the trademarks of this future Wisconsin Badger. All good things must come to an end.

JAMIE BRANN – 5’10” Sr. F/Central Dauphin – A transfer from Southern California after her sophomore year, Brann became a Commonwealth division presence last year for her ability to mix it up with any of the league’s bigs. She stepped it up a few notches in her senior season, with Mid-Penn Commonwealth and All-District-3 tournament honors. Her play down the stretch helped the Lady Rams capture their second straight District-3 tournament championship.

DAJAHNAE BRANNON – 5’11” Jr F/Harrisburg – Here we go again. Brannon didn’t wait to become a star, and has been mentioned with the best since her freshman season as a Lady Cougar. Her footwork and moves in the paint make stopping her difficult for the best defenders. She helped lead her team to the Mid-Penn Commonwealth title, Mid-Penn tournament title, and District-3 championship trifecta this season.

ELEANA ECKLEY – 5’8” Sr. G/Mifflin County – This all-time leading scorer in Lady Huskies history gave Mid-Penn Commonwealth defenses fits. The Messiah commit led the entire conference in scoring, and her team challenged Harrisburg down to the wire for the Commonwealth division title.

OLIVIA FASICK – 5’9” Jr. G/Bishop McDevitt – Another player who’s been among the league’s scoring leaders since her freshman year, Fasick has lead her Lady Crusaders back to prominence, with a season yet to go.

Sam Gress (CD)
           – N. Renald

SAM GRESS – 5’9” Jr. G/Central Dauphin – Arguably the best pure shooter in the entire conference, Gress took over the role as Lady Rams go-to player this season, and helped lead them to a second straight District-3 title. Selected 1st-team All Mid-Penn Conference, her 55 three-pointers were close to tops in the league, even in a season shortened by three games due to injury and an inclement weather cancellation.

AUNBRIELLE GREEN – 6’1” Sr. F/Central Dauphin East – Forced to work through double-teams nightly on a team without much size, Green averaged 12.4 pts and 9 rb a game on the season. One of the conference’s top bigs, her work in the classroom is all-star caliber too.

KASSIDY INGRAM – 5’10” Jr. G/F /Trinity – Her ability to play up top and down low created lots of scoring for her and nightmare match-ups for opponents. Ingram helped lead her team to both the Mid-Penn Capital and District-3 titles.

Tiara Little (CD East)
        – PennLive.com

TIARA LITTLE – 5’8” Sr. G/Central Dauphin East – This lightning quick Bloomsburg signee has feet that never stop on either end of the court. One of the most elusive players in the state, Little was top-4 in the division in points, assists, and blocks, and #1 in steals.

SUNSHINE McCRAE – 6’2” Jr. F/Trinity – Another leader on a Lady Shamrocks team who won both their division title and the District-3 championship, McCrae’s ability to put up double-doubles was a huge. The big question is … Who’s going to be able to cover her NEXT year?

LAUREN PETTIS – 6’0” Sr. F/Susquehanna Township – Pettis was the leader of a young Lady Indians team who competed hard in the tough Keystone division. She averaged close to a double-double for the season, and will be joining an already stacked Shippensburg University Lady Raiders team next season.

RACHAEL REILLY – 5’7” Sr. G/Cedar Cliff – One of the most underrated players in the Mid-Penn conference, Reilly’s game is versatile. She was the main offensive weapon on a team with loads of solid players. Her work on the defensive end was a main component of this multi-tool player.

Amber Schweiger (LD)
       – PennLive.com

AMBER SCHWEIGER – 5’9” Sr. G/Lower Dauphin – Simply put, she’s up there with the best in the conference. Born to play the point, she’s a scorer as well. She led her Lady Falcons to a Keystone division championship and a trip to the District-3 5A title game. Schweiger will transition well to the college game at the University of Findlay.

AHMYA WOODYARD – 5’7” Sr. G/Harrisburg – The Harrisburg area will miss this player. A consistent scoring threat, she’s been a main cog for the past two seasons on a very successful Lady Cougars team. Along with teammate Dajahnae Brannon, she’s half of the top one-two punch in the Mid-Penn conference.
