Trojans, Indians will play for Franklin Tip-Off tile

Ty Holsopple led Chambersburg with 15 points.

CHAMBERSBURG — The two teams expected to play in the final of the Franklin County Tip-Off Tournament on the boys side will do just that Saturday night.

Chambersburg and Waynesboro took care of business Friday and will meet at 7:30 p.m. at CASHS Field House for the tourney title. Greencastle-Antrim and James Buchanan will play for third place at 4:30 p.m.

Boro handled G-A 56-32 in the second game of the four-game event, while the Trojans stifled JB, 60-16.

The Rockets were unable to find a way to get through Chambersburg’s sticky and physical man-to-man defense and because of their lack of scoring, the lead simply kept growing.

The Trojans zipped to a 10-0 lead before Owen Stoner hit a jump shot to put JB on the board, and the Rockets never put up more than six points in any quarter.

“We really contained their dribble well, and most of the time it was one shot and done,” Chambersburg coach Shawn Shreffler said.

Truthfully, a lot of possessions ended in no shots for JB, which had 23 turnovers. And the Rockets managed to sink only 5 of 29 shots (17%). They simply couldn’t handle Chambersburg’s quickness and length.

Meanwhile, the Trojans got scoring from nine of the 10 players who got in the game. Leading the way was Ty Holsopple, who dropped in 15 in his first varsity game.

“He went after the basketball hard tonight,” Shreffler said. “A lot of these guys were nervous tonight (8 played in their first varsity game), so it was good to get this first game out of the way. For the first time out, I saw a lot of positives.”

Seth Brouse added 10 points and four other players scored at least six points.

Shreffler said, “We were balanced on offense and we moved the ball around. I think the guys saw some guys making the extra pass so they all started doing it.”

Notes: Stoner’s 5 points led the Rockets … Chambersburg shot 46% (21-for-46) from the field and 13-for-22 at the foul line … The Trojans turned it over 11 times.
