Here are the leading rushers, passers, receivers for L-L League football Week 13 playoff games

Cocalico: The streaking Eagles picked off top-seeded Solanco 32-8 on the road in a D3-5A semifinal, and once again Cocalico’s rushing attack came up extra large. First and foremost, stickers for the Eagles’ O-line department, who helped pave the way for 315 rushing yards against the previously undefeated Golden Mules. Up next, FB Sam Steffey continued his torrid stretch with 251 rushing yards on 31 big takes with a trio of TD runs, covering 52, 45 and 6 yards. And a sticker for LB Tyler Angstadt, who piled up 13 tackles to spark Cocalico’s D, which held Solanco’s high-powered rushing attack to 101 yards. Cocalico, riding a 6-game winning tear, is at Exeter on Friday for D3-5A gold.

Exeter: The undefeated Eagles are heading back to the D3-5A title game, compliments of their 21-7 win over Northern York in the semifinals. Multiple stickers here: RB Richie Karstien piled up 175 yards on 34 workmanlike carries with a 2-yard TD plunge; Penn State recruit Joey Schlaffer came up big on the flanks with six catches for 120 yards, including a 30-yard TD grab; LB Miles Brant sparked the defense with a pair of interceptions; and stickers to Exeter’s O-line unit, which opened up holes throughout for Karstien. The Eagles will go for back-to-back 5A gold trophies vs. Cocalico.

Manheim Central: The Barons belted Lampeter-Strasburg 42-6 in a D3-4A semifinal, setting up a must-see championship clash on Friday at Bishop McDevitt, as the two winningest programs in D3 history will meet head-to-head for the title. In Central’s win over L-S, RB Brycen Armold continued his tour-de-force season with 231 yards on 36 carries with three TD runs (12, 3 and 19 yards, respectively) and he became the eighth back in L-L League history to join the 2,000-yard rushing club in a single season. It was Armold’s fifth 200-yard rushing game this season, and his 34 TD runs are most in the league. And a sticker for Central’s O-line posse, which road-graded the way to Armold’s big night — and to his 2,000-yard milestone all fall.
