“We battled a very good basketball team for 20 minutes, then their size and athleticism wore us down, and turnovers led to too many baskets,” Trojan coach Shawn Shreffler said.

Central Dauphin (7-1) led by only 6 points at halftime, but outscored Chambersburg 37-22 after halftime. Freshman Malachi Palmer led the Rams with 13 points.

For the Trojans (0-5, 0-3 MPC), Noah Yeager scored a career-high 10 points, Gus Mace had 7 and Carter Sollenberger 6.

Shreffler said, “Our effort level was great throughout and guys fought ’til the end. We look forward to getting back on the court tomorrow and continuing to get better.”

Chambersburg plays at Carlisle on Saturday (2:00), and next week faces three road games — at Cumberland Valley on Tuesday, at CD East on Thursday and at Harrisburg on Friday.

GIRLS BASKETBALL
Central Dauphin 56, Chambersburg 20: The Trojans had a pair of rough offensive quarters — 2 points each in the second and fourth periods — in a Mid Penn Commonwealth loss to the unbeaten Rams on Friday night at CASHS Field House.

“Although the score doesn’t reflect it, I’m proud of how we competed,” Chambersburg coach Justin English said. “If we continue to compete with that energy for the rest of the season when we find ourselves up against adversity, then the season can end on a high note. These ladies left it all on the floor tonight.”

The game was tied 5-5 early, then CD (7-0) led 15-7 after one quarter. But it became 28-9 by halftime.

For the Trojans (3-6 (2-5 MPC), who lost 67-12 earlier to the powerful Rams, Robyn Stepler hit a pair of 3-pointers and totaled 8 points. Erin Pattillo added 6.

Caroline Shiery scored 16 and Maddie LaFrance had 12 for CD.
