LITITZ – The best thing about the postseason is the non-traditional matchups. Saturday night showcased one of those games when New Oxford from the YAIAA met up with Warwick of the Lancaster-Lebanon League in the District Three 5A Semifinal game.  A COVID closure at Warwick High complicated matters and moved the game from Friday to Saturday.  Warwick persevered from the distraction and advanced to the District Three title game for the first time in school history by downing the Colonials 14-12.

“The kids hung in, I’ve got to give them credit for that,” said Warwick Head Coach Bob Locker. “Physically we played hard right till the end of the game.”  Warwick entered Saturday’s game not having practiced since Tuesday because of COVID situations at Warwick High School.


New Oxford started out fast. The Colonials quickly took the opening kick down for points.

The New Oxford Defense held Warwick to a three and out.  The ensuing Colonial possession resulted in another first-quarter TD

Warwick finally mounted a drive at the end of quarter one and cashed in as quarter two started.

Warwick mounted another drive and took the lead just before halftime.

The third quarter was dominated by the Defenses.  New Oxford held out Warwick at its own goal line as we went to the fourth quarter.

New Oxford drove deep in Warwick territory.  This INT preserved the Warriors 14-12 win and sent them to the District Championship game for the first time in school history.
