Cumberland Valley 1, Chambersburg 0: A goal with 10:45 remaining in the second half lifted the Eagles over the Trojans in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Thursday night at Trojan Stadium, ending a six-game win streak for Chambersburg (8-5, 6-4 MPC).
Georgia Mantione scored the goal for CV (12-1-1, 9-0-1 MPC), which had beaten Chambersburg 8-0 earlier this year.
“That was a real tough loss,” Trojan coach Ed Franchi said. “We limited their chances for most of the game, but lost on a fluke goal. That was especially hard because we had what we thought was a goal a few minutes before that, but the official ruled that their keeper had possession.
“I was very proud of the way we played. The defense was strong the entire game again, and Katarina Betris and Ashley Bawell played outstanding. The girls need to keep their heads up high, be proud of the way they played and play like that the rest of the year.”

“Overall, I was happy with our performance and I think we’ve proven to ourselves that we can hang with some of the best teams in the state.”
