BOYS BASKETBALL
Chambersburg 42, Harrisburg 28: The Trojans never let the Cougars get into a rhythm on offense, and led pretty much wire-to-wire Monday night in a Mid Penn Commonwealth victory on the road.

It was Chambersburg’s sixth consecutive win over the rival Cougars.

“I thought our guys did a tremendous job of controlling the tempo of the game,” Trojan coach Shawn Shreffler said.

Chambersburg (9-4, 5-2 MPC) led 12-6 after one period and built the lead to 27-17 at halftime. After a low-scoring third, the Trojans held a 32-20 advantage.

But Harrisburg (7-4, 5-3 MPC) scored the first two buckets of the fourth quarter to pull within eight, 32-24.

Then came two key plays for the Trojans. Terell Williams threaded a pass inside to Ethan Shreffler for a layup, then less than a minute later, with 4:40 left, Shreffler found Williams with a pass for a layup and a 36-24 lead.

After the Cougars missed a pair of free throws, Braden Byers hit Carter Sollenberger with a pass and Sollenberger’s layup and resulting free throw pushed the lead to 39-24, the largest of the game.

Shreffler said, “We played really tough and disciplined defense, and were very opportunistic on offense.”

Williams led in scoring with 15 points, Aaron Maynard added 8 and Shreffler and Sollenberger each scored 7.

For Harrisburg, which had only four players score and did not hit a 3-pointer, Nanleige Thompson led with 10 points.

Chambersburg (3-8, 1-6 MPC) trailed only 42-31 at halftime, but Harrisburg (4-8, 2-6 MPC) landed a 22-7 punch in the third period to open up the lead.

The Trojans put three players in double figures — Sydney Schmus (14 points), Kiki Walker (11) and Madi Flythe (11).

But that wasn’t nearly enough to make up for the Cougars’ 1-2 punch of Kiairah Singleton and Ah’nae Robinson, who scored 27 and 26 points, respectively.

WRESTLING
Chambersburg 38, State College 30: The Trojans hit the road and managed to pick up a Mid Penn Commonwealth victory over the Little Lions on Monday.

“We split the matches, 7-7, but out bonus-pointed them,” Trojan coach Matt Mentzer said. “They have a couple of really tough kids and we only gave up two pins.”

Chambersburg (11-2, 3-1 MPC) got off to a flying start, 17-0, when Ryder Davenport (145) and Tate Nichter (152) scored pins and Luke Nichter notched a 20-4 technical fall at 160.

After the Little Lions (6-3, 1-3 MPC) pulled to within 17-13 with three wins, the Trojans got back-to-back pins from Zach Evans (220) and Wyatt Hull (285), both of whom wrestled up a weight.

Rylan Carter captured a decision at 113 and a pin by Karl Shindledecker at 126 clinched the match, putting Chambersburg up by 16 points with two bouts remaining.

Mentzer said, “That’s a tough assignment to ride 2 1/2 hours, make weight and wrestle 60 minutes later. We got huge pins from Davenport, Evans and Hull and Carter had a real solid effort at 113 to really put the match out of reach for them.”
