Pioneers victorious over Eastern York 42-7 in post-Bear Shank era

Friday's game not only marked the start of a new season for the Lampeter-Strasburg football team but also a new era as the Pioneers play without 7000-yard club three year starting star quarterback Bear Shank.

This new era started on a high note with the Pioneers opening the 2016 season by soundly defeating Eastern York, 42-7. Junior Todd Shelley lead the Pioneers by connecting 10 of his 17 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns. Cam Niemeyer was another standout player who earned 146 yards with five passes. Niemeyer's highlight play was his 36-yard dash that earned him his third touchdown of the night.

In fact Todd Shelley and Cam Niemeyer had such great games that both players have been nominated as Football Player of the Week by PennLive. You can vote for them at
