This feature recaps last weekend’s action from the youth football organizations that chose to partner with LebCoSports.  Much of the reporting below is written by the dedicated volunteers within these organizations.  

     Falcon Youth Football

Red Rose Midget Football League Age group information 

B (2-2)         Bye Week

C (1-3)          Bye Week

D (2-2-1)      Falcons 20 v Lancaster Catholic Crusaders 6

      • This week, the B and C teams were given a bye week, but the D team took to the field on Saturday against the Lancaster Catholic Crusaders.
      • The Falcon “D” team picked up right where they left off the week before.  Beginning with the first offensive series, the Falcons benefitted from a tough touchdown run by Chase Reesman.  Once that occurred, the Crusaders had trouble chasing down the Falcons.  Reesman added his second touchdown of the day, weaving through several defenders on 60-yard run that ended with 6 points on the scoreboard.  On the first play of the second half, it was Killion Serafin who had a 60-yard touchdown run of his own.  Amarion Padilla punched in a 2-point conversion and also flew around the field on defense throughout the game.  The defensive unit as a whole has been strong all year, but has seemingly turned into a stone wall in recent weeks.  With two straight wins, the Falcons will keep putting in the work to continue their improvement each week.
      • Up Next: The Falcons will host Columbia on Sunday afternoon.

Smurfs                 Exhibition/Developmental

      • With the rain falling on Saturday, the Raiders hosted the Waynesboro Stallions.
      • The Raider Midgets could not get much going on offense and could not match the intensity that the Stallions brought to the match.  This was the second straight loss for a squad that started the season with four straight wins.  They will get another chance to get back on track next week, as they hope to improve their playoff odds.
      • The Raider Pony squad was shut down by Waynesboro and lost after holding their opponent in check the best that they could.  Next week will offer another opportunity for the Raiders to put all they have learned into a winning effort.
      • The Raider Peewees played another amazing game, running their streak to four straight wins. Denzel Fermin ran for 30-yard touchdown.  Patrick Fields also provided a rushing touchdown in the victorious effort.
      • The Raider Smurfs continue to improve as a team. During the first half of the game, they were short players, but continued to fight.  Mu’Aadh rushed for a 50-yard touchdown. Grayson and Donavon led the defense in tackles.  This young group continues to grow as they learn the game of football.
      • Up Next: The Raiders will host the Northern Polar Bears.

      • The Panther Mites could not get much going on the rain soaked field and lost to a tough Schuylkill Valley team.
      • The Myerstown Mighty Mites could not match what the hard-nosed Schuylkill Valley squad brought to the field.

     Northern Lebanon Vikings

CFA – Federal Conference Age group information 

Midgets (2-4)     Vikings 2 v Northern Polar Bears 6

Ponies (3-3)        Vikings 0 v Northern Polar Bears  33

Peewees (2-4)     Vikings 7 v Northern Polar Bears 0

Smurfs                Exhibition/Developmental

      • A last minute change of venue occurred when field conditions in Northern York were deemed to be too poor. This meant that Northern Lebanon played host to the Northern Polar Bears on Sunday.
      • The Viking Midget squad lost in heartbreaking fashion to a very tough celebration of Polar Bears (the actual name for a group of polar bears).  It was a defensive battle all game beween these two teams. In the 3rd quarter, the Vikings successfully blocked a punt and recover it on the Polar Bear’s 1-yard line, but were then unable to punch it into the end zone.  On the next Polar Bear possession, the Vikings’ linebacker Landon Copenhaver put his team up 2-0 when he completed a safety.  This lead did not hold, as Northern was able to score midway through the 4th quarter.  The Vikings attempted to regain the lead after Landon Graby recovered a fumble late in the game, but time expired before they could convert.  On defense, Christian Spencer was the defensive MVP for the Vikings, finishing the day with 8 tackles, with 4 of them being tackles for a loss.
      • The Viking Pony squad lost to a very talented Northern team 33-0. The Polar Bears were too much to handle for the Vikes. Linebacker Dante McFarland recovered a fumble early in the first quarter to stop a Northern drive, but the Vikings didn’t have an answer for Northern’s offense after that. Offensively, the Vikings struggled to generate momentum.
      • The Viking Peewees got back on the winning track.  Offensively, it was Titus Feagley who found the end zone for the Vikings, giving them enough points for the victory.  Quarterback Mason Moyer and tight end Luke Shireman found a connection that aided the Vikings offensive attack, with the pair completing 3 pass plays that resulted in 2 key first downs and an extra point conversion. On defense, the star of the game was defensive tackle Coy Crane, who had multiple tackles for losses and 3 fumble recoveries. Isaiah Stokrp added another fumble recovery for the Vikings defense.
      • The Viking Smurfs were able to get back on track in what was an exciting game, full of touchdowns for the Vikings. Brandon Heist led the attack with two touchdowns. Beckett Wetzel added a touchdown of his own and Ashton Graby scored his first touchdown of the season.
      • Up Next: On Saturday evening, the Vikings will host the Waynesboro Stallions at the Northern Lebanon High School. The most important game of that day will be the 8th annual Itty Bitty Bowl at 2:00 PM, with the youngest Vikings (5U) taking the field to defend their championship.
