As conference foes and arch rivals there are no surprises when Manheim Central and Cocalico face off.  Its just who is going to execute better and what team will prevail in the one on one matchups.  On Friday night it was very clear that the Barons of Manheim Central were the dominant team.  Central executed flawlessly on offense and the defense held the Eagles offense in check all night long.  Manheim Central captured the District Three 5A title  48-14 over Cocalico Friday night.

Quarterback Evan Simon had an outstanding performance once again.  Evan passed for five TD’s three of which he combined with Colby Wagner.  That’s five TD’s in the last two games for the Simon- C.Wagner duo.  This was the second straight District title for Manheim Central.  The Barons are now (13-0) and move on to face West Chester Rustin next week in the PIAA tourney.

Most of the fist quarter was a field position battle.  Following an interception, Cocalico had the first scoring chance of the game.  This is where the Baron D came up big and turned the momentum of the game.

The defensive stand seemed to ignite the entire Manheim Central team.  The Barons finally moved on top late in the second quarter.

The Barons Defense forced a quick three and out.  Then it was the other Wagner brother Colby on the receiving end of a Simon TD to move the lead to 14-0.

Good clock management by Manheim Central gave the Barons one more shot before halftime.  That quick strike combo of Evan Simon to Colby Wagner was money again and Cocalico did not know what hit them going to halftime down 21-0.

Manheim Central picked up in the second half, right were they left off in the first.  An opening possession TD pass from Simon to Colby Wagner pushed the lead to 28-0 early in the third.

The next Barons possession was a long time consuming effort that Jake Harbach finished.


Cocalico kept plugging away and got on the board with a Noah Palm TD early in the fourth quarter.


Tyler Flick dove across to move the score to 42-7

Noah Palm scored his second TD of the night as time ran down

A late TD by the Barons made the final 48-14.
