Chambersburg roundup: Girls soccer team rallies to edge Herd, 2-1

GIRLS SOCCER
Chambersburg 2, Carlisle 1: The Trojans gave up a goal to the Thundering Herd just 4 minutes into the game, but rallied to capture a 2-1 Mid Penn Commonwealth victory Saturday night at Trojan Stadium.

Chambersburg (2-1) was awarded a penalty kick with 14 minutes left in the first half and Gianna Weigel converted the PK to even the score.

It remained a 1-1 deadlock until Ahsia Thomas knocked in the game winner with only 4 minutes left in regulation.

Trojan coach Ed Franchi said, “Even after giving up the early goal, the girls didn’t let it get them down and did a great job picking each other up. Everybody played a role in this win.

“Olivia Martin did an outstanding  job of shutting down Carlisle’s Sejla Podzic. I had Olivia move from left back to right back when Sejla would move. Kat Betris and Adeline Williams both played another solid game on defense.”

BOYS SOCCER
Chambersburg 2, Carlisle 0: Luke Mason scored his third goal of the week and the Trojans blanked the Thundering Herd in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Saturday afternoon.

“Luke Mason continues his good run of form with yet another goal,” Chambersburg coach Corey Grove said. “He’s been an engine for us. Some of our younger guys, like Cohen Redding and Cristian Lopez, are also doing a nice job of stepping up.”

Andrew Quach also had a good offensive game, assisting on Mason’s goal, and popping in one for himself after a pass from Calvin Carlin.

Carlisle out-shot the Trojans (2-1), 17-11.

Grove said, “I thought today was our best performance to date. We’ve been trying some things regarding positioning and rotations, and today it seemed to click. We’ve been talking about focusing on getting better each day and taking it one game at a time. So far, I feel as though we have done a good job at that.”

FIELD HOCKEY
Carlisle 1, Chambersburg 0: The Trojans (0-3) held the line against the Herd until they scored the game winner with six minutes left in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Saturday afternoon.

“The girls left everything they had in them out on that field today and the coaches could not be more proud,” Chambersburg coach Makenzie Magnotta said.

“Our forwards, Morgan Smith and Abbie Mowery, worked so hard and had several great doubles when re-defending. Kenzie Boyd was unstoppable in the middle. Our goalie, Emma Moschetti, put up a great fight in the cage. Next week the girls will come ready to work hard and focus on getting that ball in the back of the cage.”
