It was the fourth straight victory for the Trojans (6-4, 4-3 MPC), including a pair of 1-0 win over the Little Lions.

“It makes a coach proud to see the girls playing with such positive energy, playing together and supporting each other,” Chambersburg coach Ed Franchi said. “It was another complete game — creating multiple opportunities and limiting quality opportunities to the opposition.”

Katarina Betris sent a long ball toward Thomas and she beat a defender to the ball before scoring the goal.

Franchi said, “She just wanted the ball more than the defender.”

Annie Metzger made 6 saves in the first half for the Trojans, and Faith Johnson made 5 in the second to preserve the shutout.

“I thought Gianna Weigel did a real nice job controlling the middle tonight,” Franchi said.

Chambersburg 2, State College 0: The Trojans picked up a big road win Thursday by blanking the Little Lions 2-0 in a Mid Penn Conference game.

Luke Mason and Aaron Maynard scored the goals for Chambersburg (6-2, 4-1 MPC), while Kenan Korkutovic and Tanner Luther were credited with assists.
