On a corner play, Kenzie Boyd sent the ball in and Jayden Seilhamer cracked it into the cage for the game’s only goal. It was Seilhamer’s team-leading fourth goal of the season.

“Everyone on the team brought their best game and fought hard,” Chambersburg coach Danielle Clutter said. “We dominated the first half and Carlisle brought a tougher game the second.”

Trojan goalie Emma Moschetti made three saves and the defense held Carlisle scoreless on five second-half corners.

Clutter said, “Our defensive team (Alexis Peres, Meaghan Gibbons and Amber Pyne) did a really nice job tonight stepping up and making good tackles and also being an option on the attack.

“We were able to move some players around to be more of an attacking team. I moved Cejay Cocco up to the midfield, which allowed Adyson Finkle to push up the forward line to help generate the attack.”

On Saturday at the Boiling Springs Tournament, the Trojans (2-7, 1-5 MPC) fell 2-0 to the host Bubblers and 3-1 to Greencastle-Antrim, with Boyd scoring the goal from Finkle.

Jacob Carlin shot a 9-over par 81, which was the final score to qualify. The Mid Penn will send 22 participants to districts.

“In the past, the cut was a little higher,” Trojan coach Mark Yost said. “We didn’t think it would be that low based on the averages. But the course was a little dry and played fast and firm.”

Also for Chambersburg, Owen Reichelderfer shot 85, Teegan Humelsine 90, Elijah Snyder and Tyson Shaull each carded a 93 and Spencer Bodner came in with 104.

Waynesboro’s Devin Smith fired a 1-under par 71, but had to settle for being the runner-up, three strokes back of Carlisle’s John Peters. The Indians also took fifth as a team; Cumberland Valley won the event and put seven players into districts.
