Chambersburg 4, CD East 0: The Trojans captured a shutout win in their final regular season game Tuesday evening at Trojan Stadium, beating the Panthers, 4-0.
Chambersburg’s record is 8-10 and it has almost certainly clinched a berth in the District 3 Class 4A playoffs. The Trojans were stationed in the No. 16 spot before the win and the No. 17 and 18 teams had already played all of their games.
The Trojans got a great start when Gabby Lecuona scored on a free kick that deflected off an East player in the second minute. She then passed to Layne Kimple for a goal in the seventh minute. Lauren Ocker made it 3-0 before halftime, with Lecuona getting her second assist, and Ashlynn Swanger capped the scoring with a shot into the upper 90 after a pass from Brynn Vandegriff.
Chambersburg coach Ed Franchi said, “The team came out very focused, knowing they had to win to reach their goal of making it to districts. We got two goals in the first 10 minutes and the defense allowed only one shot on goal by keeping the ball in front of them.”
Cumberland Valley 3, Chambersburg 1: The Eagles won the final three games (25-18, 25-23 and 25-23) after the Trojans (8-7, 7-6 MPC), who have dropped four of their last five matches, captured the first one, 25-21.
“This was a match of high level volleyball,” Chambersburg assistant coach Bobby Culler said. “Both teams left everything on the floor and worked hard ’til the finish.”
Lauren Ching contributed 28 assists, 2 aces and 5 blocks for the Trojans. Bailee Nitterhouse picked up 21 digs and 7 kills, Ashley Adams and Ally Davis each had 7 kills, Taylor Myers had 12 digs and Anne Romine added 12 service points.
