Weekend wrap – Zeller's team falls short

Andrew Zeller's bid for a state championship came to an end Saturday night.

Neutralizing the Maryland-bound offensive lineman was a major focus for Cumberland Valley in its 35-7 win over Zeller's Red Lion squad in the Pennsylvania District 3-AAAA title game

One of the key matchups Saturday night was how well CV's offensive line matched up with a Red Lion front four that was playing with a ton of confidence in the first three rounds of the District 3 playoffs. Particularly, senior defensive tackle and Maryland recruit Andrew Zeller had been a headache for opposing offenses.

But this Cumberland Valley team is unlike anyone else the Lions (10-4) have gone up against in the York-Adams League.

The Eagles had the size and the tenacity to neutralize Zeller and they did so on several key plays early in this one.

Basketball recruiting

• Terps target J.P. Tokoto's Menomonee Falls (Wis.) squad dropped a 95-85 game to Milwaukee Washington on Saturday.

Facing a 23-point hole at halftime, Falls junior standout J.P Tokoto put the Indians (0-2) on his back. He scored every way in the third quarter to trim the lead to only 10 points entering the fourth. Tokoto scored 14 of his 23 points in the third, including a pair of thunderous dunks.
