York Catholic’s coaching staff didn’t need analytics or charts in their decision-making process Friday night. In fact, there was only one step to this process: trusting the defense.

The Irish defensive unit, which was shorthanded thanks to the tenacious efforts of its Biglerville counterpart, staged a shutout in the second half and allowed just 72 yards of offense to propel York Catholic to a 13-7 win over the Canners in the YAIAA Season 3 Final at the Stadium Musselman.
