Chambersburg roundup 10/16


Chambersburg 2, Mechanicsburg 1: The Trojans rallied for a come-from-behind victory on Monday for their second win in three days and ended their season on a winning note.

Trailing 1-0 at halftime, Chambersburg (4-13) rallied for two goals in the latter half. The first goal was knocked in by Rachel Dusman, assisted by Hannah Raines, while on the game-winner, Dusman earned the assist on a shot by Jess Champion.

Dusman led the team with 7 goals and 4 assists.

“The girls really put in their best effort tonight,” Chambersburg coach Danielle Clutter said. “They worked extremely well as a team and passed the ball beautifully. I am extremely proud of their game play tonight. They truly stepped up and played a great game of hockey.”


Chambersburg 2, Cedar Cliff 1: The Trojans posted their third consecutive victory by holding off Cedar Cliff to raise their record to 7-10 (3-9 MPC) and keep alive its District 3 playoff bid.

Currently, the Trojans hold the No. 16 and final spot in 4A. If they can beat CD East (3-13-1) on Tuesday in their final regular season game, it should be enough to earn a playoff berth.

“The girls have been on a mission to reach districts this year and we have an opportunity to accomplish that,” Chambersburg coach Ed Franchi said. “The girls have been playing very well, supporting each other and giving maximum effort. We did a good job possessing the ball and finding the open space.”

Emily Bard scored in the game’s first minute after a cross from Gabby Lecuona, and Lecuona made it 2-0 in the 55th minute with her 10th goal of the season. Emily Esser got one back for the Colts, but that was it.


York Suburban 3, Chambersburg 1: The Trojans lost a tight non-league match against York Suburban, with game scores of 21-25, 25-21, 26-24 and 26-24.

“It was a tight match from start to finish,” Chambersburg assistant coach Bobby Culler said. “We played tentative at times and just couldn’t close out the sets. It was a fun match to watch, though.”

Leaders for the Trojans (8-6) were Ashley Adams (10 kills), Ally Davis (9 kills), Lauren Ching (37 assists, 3 blocks), Bailee Nitterhouse (19 digs), Ansley Runk (17 digs), Anne Romine (3 aces) and Breanne Byers (11 service points).
