keller@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Blake Border has had his share of good passing games this season, but the Greencastle-Antrim quarterback probably got as close to perfect as he will ever get Friday night. Border completed 12 of 14 passes for 213 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Blue Devils to a 42-13 victory over Waynesboro in a Mid-Penn Colonial game at Rip Engle Stadium. "Coach said he wasn't sure if we were going to throw the ball a lot," Border said.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- In a snap, all fortune changed for the Waynesboro football team. The same thing could be said for Greencastle-Antrim. A low snap on a Waynesboro punt ignited Greencastle's offense, starting a run of three touchdowns in the final 4:27 of the first half, to lift the Blue Devils out of a funk for a 34-0 victory to ruin the Indians' Senior Day festivities. Brett Meyers threw for two scores and Devin Schaeffer ran for his first of two touchdowns as the Blue Devils went from zero to a 21-0 halftime lead.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - By holding the normally potent Northern football team to just seven points, Greencastle-Antrim had a good reason to think about victory. The Blue Devils held down its potentially explosive guests, but it was the Polar Bears who put the clamps on Greencastle's offense, posting a 7-0 victory in the Mid-Penn Colonial lidlifter on Friday night. The Blue Devils were held to 127 total yards - 93 coming on the ground - on a night when Greencastle worked its way across midfield only three times, the deepest time to the Northern 35. Northern, the two-time reigning Colonial champions, drew first and only blood with an 8-play, 62-yard drive, with scatback Gerald Anderson scoring from 21 yards out. With the extra point, the Polar Bears led just 3:22 into the game.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - After reaching the PIAA District 3-AAA championship game last year, Greencastle-Antrim's boys basketball team entered this season with expectations as high as any team in the Tri-State area. A mixture of injuries, academic issues and disciplinary suspensions had kept the Blue Devils from fulfilling those expectations. That is, until Friday night, when rival James Buch-anan - the top dog so far this year in the Mid-Penn Capital and the District 3-AAA power ratings - came to Greencastle.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Greencastle-Antrim football coach Chuck Tinninis said he had "about four heart attacks" during Friday night's game against Big Spring. Luckily for him - and the Blue Devils - his guts were doing just fine. With Big Spring holding a one-point lead in overtime, Tinninis called for a two-point conversion to win. Mike Jemison answered with a three-yard scamper into the end zone to give No. 4 Greencastle a heart-pounding 22-21 victory and the inside track to the first Mid Penn football title in school history.

bobp@herald-mail.com GREENCASTLE, Pa. - When it comes to baseball, the jury might still be out on Greencastle-Antrim. But when it comes to the waiting game, the Blue Devils proved they could win a Mid Penn title. First, Greencastle waited for a half-hour before Harrisburg arrived at Barkdoll Field for Friday's game. Then, when the Cougars finally made the scene, the Blue Devils stood around some more at home plate and strolled to a 17-1 season-opening victory, halted by the mercy rule in the fourth inning.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- Many defenses survive by "Bend, don't break" football. Well, the Greencastle-Antrim defense broke Friday night against Kennard-Dale. But the offense picked up the pieces. The Greencastle defense surrendered 449 yards of total offense -- 341 on the ground -- but the offense bailed the team out with two key fourth-quarter drives to hold off the Rams 42-39 in the first round of the PIAA District 3 playoffs at Kaley Field. The playoff win is the first in school history for the Blue Devils, who also reached 10 wins for the first time and will host Garden Spot -- a 46-34 winner against Lebanon -- next weekend.
