Chambersburg 3, Cedar Cliff 2: Brooks Huntsman scored her second goal of the game on an assist from Nether Dean with 4:37 left in the second overtime Tuesday afternoon to lift the Trojans to a Mid Penn Commonwealth road victory over the Colts.
“Dean had a real nice game, and she had a beautiful through ball to create the goal for Huntsman,” Chambersburg coach Ed Franchi said.
Lindsey Swanger opened the scoring for the Trojans (2-3, 1-2 MPC) on an assist by Adeline Williams, and after Cedar Cliff tied it, Huntsman scored before the first half ended. The Colts tied it up again with 13:48 left.
Franchi said, “It was another wild game, and we created plenty of opportunities. But we played a little selfish today and weren’t trusting each other. I was happy we got the win, but a little disappointed with the effort level.”
Chambersburg out-shot Cliff, 30-6, and keeper Bridget Kemerer made four stops.

Jose Morales and Cole Myers picked up goals in the opening half and Mikey Williams put one away in the second half.

Williams assisted on the first goal and Tanner Luther and Calvin Carlin also picked up helpers for the Trojans (4-1, 2-0 MPC).
Grove said, “It was another shutout and a good lock down performance from our back line. Last night was a tough loss and most of the boys played a full 80- minutes, so to come out and give another solid effort shows some mental toughness.
“With Cumberland Valley coming up Thursday, it was good to get Kenan (Korkutovic) and Andrew (Quach) back in the lineup after recovering from injuries.”
