Cumberland Valley 57, Chambersburg 40: The Eagles built a lead of 28-9 by halftime and cruised over the Trojans in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Friday night at CV.

For Chambersburg (0-3, 0-2 MPC), Robyn Stepler led the team with 13 points. She had 10 of those in the second half, when she sank three of her four 3-pointers.

Also for the Trojans, Marlee Wrights contributed 8 points.

“I am super proud of the girls’ response to Tuesday’s game (loss to Central Dauphin),” Chambersburg coach Justin English said. “There was no letup and the ladies battled to the end. This is a good confidence builder for us going into the next couple of weeks, because it confirms that this team has what it takes for success.”

Jill Jekot scored 12 of her 18 points in the first half for Cumberland Valley. The Eagles also got 15 points from Natalie Parsons.

English said, “Turnovers killed us early and got us in a hole, but once we clean that up, I’m excited for what we could achieve.”

BOYS BASKETBALL
Cumberland Valley 59, Chambersburg 40: The Eagles put 11 players in the scoring column Friday night and collected a Mid Penn Commonwealth victory over the Trojans at CASHS Field House.

CV took a 16-11 lead after one quarter, led 31-19 at the half and 52-33 after three periods. Ben Drury led Cumberland Valley with 12 points and Max Krevsky added 10.

Chambersburg (0-2, 0-2 MPC) poured in eight 3-pointers. Gus Mace knocked down five of them for a team-high 15 points, including three in the first quarter.

Paris Banks scored 6 points for the Trojans, and Carter Sollenberger and Hunter Noel each scored 5.

Trojan coach Shawn Shreffler said, “Their balance was quite evident by looking at the boxscore, they knocked down open shots and did a great job on the boards.

“I was very pleased with how Gus Mace responded to what he called “a poor effort” Tuesday against CD. We’re in the midst of a really tough stretch of games, but with continued humility, accountability and guys sticking together, we’ll become stronger as a result.”

The Trojans play at defending District 3 champion Wilson on Saturday night.
