YORK, Pa. -- York Financial Corp. reported flat first-quarter earnings of $2 million compared to September 1993 earnings before accounting changes.

The $881-million-asset parent of York Federal Savings and Loan Association earned $4.1 million for the September 1993 quarter after the accounting change.
