Chambersburg 12, Carlisle 3: The Trojans put the game away with seven runs in the top of the seventh inning to take a 12-1 lead in their Mid Penn Commonwealth win over the Thundering Herd on Monday.

“That big seventh inning gave us some breathing room,” Chambersburg coach Chris Skultety said. “We need to build on that inning, because we left 16 runners on base — that’s at least two in every inning — and that’s unheard of.”

Leadoff hitter Taylor Myers was a big thorn in the side of Carlisle (0-13, 0-8 MPC), reaching base in all six at-bats, with four hits, a walk and a hit by pitch. Alyssa Wenger went 3-for-4 and Haley Privett was 2-for-3 and belted a solo home run.

“Erin Pattillo came off the bench and sparked us with a single and double,” Skultety said.

Mackenzie Stake pitched six innings, allowing just one unearned run, to earn the win. She walked one and had nine strikeouts.

Carlisle 5, Chambersburg 1: The Herd tallied four runs in the top of the first inning off Mason Yeager and that was enough to subdue the Trojans in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Monday at Greene Township Park.

Yeager settled down and gave up only one more run to Carlisle (3-10, 2-6 MPC), but Chambersburg’s only scoring came on a solo home run to left field by Max Armstrong in the sixth inning.

Also for the Trojans (1-10, 1-7 MPC), Aaden Newman hit a double and Brandon Kissinger and Andrew Wurtz had singles.

Hunter Reedy was 3-for-4 and had two RBIs for the Herd and Jared Eck pitched a four-hitter.

Chambersburg 3, Central Dauphin East 2: The Trojans ended their regular season with their third win in the last four matches, a Mid Penn Commonwealth victory over the Panthers on Monday at Norlo Park.

Chambersburg (3-10, 1-5 MPC) got one win in singles, at No. 2 by Sam Vessah, 6-1, 6-1 over Colin Cronen. LeShan Wilkinson had a close loss at No. 3, falling in three sets.

At No. 1 doubles, Vincent Wijaya and Nate Irvin collected a 6-4, 6-2 victory, and at No. 2 doubles, Ryan Kemerer and Diego Siles picked up a hard-fought 7-5, 6-4 win.

Cedar Cliff 10, Chambersburg 5: The number of goals scored against the Trojans was the lowest in six games, but Chambersburg couldn’t match that number in a Mid Penn defeat Monday.

“The girls worked really hard to transition up the field,” Trojan coach Keara Allshouse said. “Goalie Kenna Shearer made nine saves and was aggressive in goal. She has found her playing style.”

Ashley Bawell scored three times for Chambersburg (1-10, 1-9 MPC) and Ashlyn Bothe added two goals.

Allshouse said, “Leah Coder had some beautiful hard transition passes today. We’re going to work on some offensive plays in practice this week.”

Chambersburg 18, Cedar Cliff 3: The Trojans won their third straight game in dominating fashion over the Colts in a Mid Penn game Monday night at Trojan Stadium.

“Our kids moved the ball well and showed a lot of class,” Chambersburg coach Paul Flohr said.

Thomas Elia buried five shots for goals, Aidan Brechbill scored four goals and Ben Melego added three. Scoring single goals were Austin Brookens, Grayson Hopple, Haden Ocker, Klein Burkholder, Nash Bothe and Dom Marangoni.

Flohr said, “Thomas had a nice night shooting and dropped a bomb for the last goal of the game. Brechbill has had a nice three-to-four game run and is just getting better each game.”

Putting up assists for Chambersburg (5-6, 4-6 MPC) were Hopple and Burkholder with three each, Marangoni with two and one each by Brechbill, Brookens and Cade Martin.

Ocker and Bothe each picked up five ground balls, Bothe won 17 of 23 face-offs and goalie Angel Santos made six saves.
