The Little Dutchmen finished tied for second with Elco behind L-L League Section 3 champion Lancaster Catholic in the regular season and have won three of their last four games. A-C relies heavily on its ground game; the Dutchmen attempt an average of just 7.9 passes per game. Quarterback Jeremy Bours and running backs Trevor Porche and Caleb Turner have combined for 2,242 yards and 25 touchdowns on the ground. A-C’s rushing attack averages 326 yards per game. Bermudian Springs finished third behind York Catholic and Delone Catholic in the YAIAA Division III race; two of the Eagles’ three losses came against the division leaders (the other was a 37-17 setback against Shippensburg). BS enters the playoffs on a three-game winning streak.
