Chambersburg wins tiebreaker: After the scores were counted in a Mid Penn Colonial match at Eagles Crossing on Wednesday, a winner had still not been determined.
Chambersburg and Waynesboro had each totaled 337 strokes when the best four scores of each team’s five top players were counted. The tiebreaker was the lowest score of the teams’ fifth player and the Trojans’ Elijah Snyder shot 89 to best the Indians’ Evan Stein (94).
“I’m glad we won the way we won, because it shows the kids that every stroke counts,” Chambersburg coach Mark Yost said. “If anybody had given up one more stroke somewhere, we would have lost.”
It was the third match that had to go to a tiebreaker since Yost began coaching in 1999. The first, in his second match, went to the seventh golfer before the verdict was decided.
Waynesboro’s Devin Smith, who has been the medalist each match this year, shot a 2-over par 74. Chambersburg’s Teegan Humelsine (80) and Owen Reichelderfer (83) took the next two spots.
Also scoring for the Trojans were Jacob Carlin (tie 7th, 86), Heather Sanbower (10th, 88) and Snyder.
“It was a good win from a team standpoint,” Yost said. “It was nice for Teegan and Owen to play well enough to get into the top three.”
James Buchanan’s Caleb Reath was sixth with an 84. For Greencastle-Antrim, Shea Toomey shot 92 and Shippensburg’s Stephen Lucas had a 96.
Sanbower finished two strokes ahead of the Indians’ Ella Lowry, who had a 90, among the girls.
With two matches left in the season, Waynesboro still leads the division with a 28-2 record, while the Trojans are 27-3.
Central Dauphin 8, Chambersburg 0: The Trojans fell to 1-3 (0-3 MPC) with the defeat to the Rams on Tuesday night.
