Chambersburg roundup: Wrestlers go 2-2; Herd sends boys to 6th defeat

WRESTLING
Chambersburg goes 2-2 at tournament: The Trojans hosted four other teams Saturday for the Trojan Covid Duals Tournament and beat Big Spring and Shippensburg, while taking losses to Hempfield and Red Land.

Ethan Faytol

The defeat to Hempfield was no shame — the Black Knights are now 17-1 and ranked in the top four of District 3. Chambersburg (9-8) actually held a 15-12 lead after five bouts after a decision by Anthony Colangelo (138) and pins by Ryder Davenport (160) and Tate Nichter (172). But Hempfield won the final eight bouts, including three by forfeit.

The win by Red Land (6-5) was fueled by an 18-0 start that included a pin at 160 for Connor Stank, who trailed 6-0 until he escaped, took Davenport down and caught  him on his back for a fall. The Trojans were also missing Aiden Hight, who was hurt in the previous match.

Chambersburg’s highlight came at 215 when Ethan Faytol scored a 4-2 win in overtime against Bryce Phillips, a freshman who entered the day with just one loss. Faytol scored a late takedown to go ahead 2-1, but was called for locked hands to tie it. In OT, Faytol notched a takedown about 30 seconds in.

“Great job by Faytol in that match,” Trojan coach Matt Mentzer said. “Phillips was a PJW (youth) state champion last year. Ethan is starting to gain some confidence — great win against a good young kid. And (Zach) Evans had a good match (6-3 loss) against Dylan Rodenhaber, who is ranked in the state.”

Chambersburg scored five pins in the win over Big Spring (9-10), and five more to beat Ship (1-10). Evans pinned the Bulldogs’ district qualifier from a year ago, Andrew Adams, in 1:23.

Nichter was the only Trojan to go unbeaten, and he racked up four pins. Going 3-1 were Rylan Carter (113), Colangelo, Kelby Mixell (145) and Davenport, who had three pins.

Mentzer said, “The kids competed real well today.”

Shippensburg also fell to Big Spring 51-21 and Red Land 43-22. In a good matchup vs. the Trojans, the Greyhounds’ Dom Frontino, a defending district champion, picked up a 5-0 nod over Colangelo.

Carlisle 56, Chambersburg 49: The Trojans fell behind early, then made a late run at the Thundering Herd, but fell short in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Saturday afternoon.

“Carlisle’s hot shooting put us in an early hole, but our guys, who are really developing toughness and resiliency, fought back and gave themselves a chance to win,” Chambersburg coach Shawn Shreffler said.  “They just made more plays than us at the end.”

Dylan Young, who popped in five 3-pointers, led Carlisle with 23 points. Both teams sank eight threes.

For the Trojans (0-6, 0-4 MPC), Jacob Bassham led with 14 points, Carter Sollenberger totaled 10 and Noah Yeager and Gus Mace each added 9 points.

Shreffler said, “I’m really proud of their effort and fight. We’re getting better and pieces are improving as we gain valuable experience against out stiff competition.”
