Mounts eliminate Eagles

Ephrata dispatched Cocalico for the third time this season, winning 3-1 (21-25, 25-12, 25-17, 25-16) at Hempfield. The Mounts, who defeated their Section Two foe twice during the regular season, got eight kills from Julia Witmer and four blocks from Morgan Lehman.
Ephrata (11-6), the No. 16 seed, advances to play top-seeded Hempfield at 3 p.m. Saturday at Central York High School [directions].
Kristen Boyer led the way for 17th-seeded Cocalico (9-6) with 12 kills and seven blocks.

Mounts advance to Quarterfinals

The Ephrata Boys Soccer team opened the District 3 tournament on Tuesday night. The Mounts hosted the Exeter Eagles, and proved to be rather rude hosts ending the Eagles' season with a 2-1 victory. Nate Eberly scored Ephrata's second goal in the 71st minute to lead the Mounts over the Eagles (10-8-2).
Carl Rowits also scored for Ephrata (14-5-1), while Trevor Boyer and Kyle Phillips added assists. Ephrata will play top seeded Wilson (20-1-1) in the quarterfinals on Saturday Oct 27th at Hamburg Area High School [directions].

Lady Mounts ousted from Districts

The Lady Mounts field hockey team opened District 3 play against Central Dauphin on Tuesday afternoon. Unfortunately for the Mounts their season came to an end losing 1-6. Katie Hammaker stopped 23 shots for the Mountaineers, but the difference was in the offensive end, where the Rams (15-4-2) were able to crack the cage, while Ephrata got just one goal from Nicole Wilkerson after falling into a 6-0 hole.

Central Dauphin will play Hershey (12-7-1), which knocked off second-seeded Dallastown (19-1-1), at 1 p.m. Saturday at Milton Hershey.

Barons take measure of Mounts

MOUNTS FAN'S NOTE: This was an article written for the Lancaster paper, so if you were hoping to read about some Ephrata player ... just the smallest blurb or mention about someone that did something, or said something, that was from Ephrata and not Manheim, this is not the article for you, you will not find it here. Feel free to look at the box score [here]; as it will include names from both teams. Thanks!
Oh!! and in case you're curious "take measure of" means to make a judgment or form an opinion about someone or something. Used correctly like this: "The Barons quietly observed the Mounts, taking the measure of this team they had heard so much about."
It's Homecoming weekend in Manheim and must-win football has already begun for the Barons.
