BOYS BASKETBALL
Harrisburg 55, Chambersburg 48: A rough start to the fourth quarter enabled the Cougars to pull away a bit from the Trojans and Harrisburg kept that lead to collect a Mid Penn Commonwealth win Friday night.

It snapped a 7-game win streak for Chambersburg over the Cougars.

“We were down only two heading into the fourth and then struggled to score, which allowed Harrisburg to create separation,” Trojan coach Shawn Shreffler said. “I was extremely pleased with our effort and  how we controlled the tempo through three quarters.”

Jacob Bassham and Gus Mace each scored 12 points for Chambersburg (0-9, 0-7 MPC). Mace hit four 3-pointers and Bassham had two. Jayden Jones scored a career-high 8 points.

Shreffler said, “There were lots of bright spots, and we received contributions from a variety of sources and continue to show improvements. Even our adjustments from last night paid dividends — we battled a much taller team on the glass and wer a lot better in transition. I feel a lot better where we’re at and the progress we’re making as a team.”

Avery Cloud led Harrisburg with 12 points.

“We are not going to win any game shooting 9-for-42 from the floor (21%) and 4-for-17 on threes (23%),” Chambersburg coach Justin English said. “What is even more frustrating is the fact that we had only 11 turnovers vs. a very good, aggressive defensive team.”

Chambersburg (3-8, 2-7 MPC) also couldn’t handle Harrisburg’s 1-2 punch of Jalasia Hull (18 points) and Ma’Kayla Lemelle (15). The Cougars are 4-5.

For the Trojans, Erin Pattillo led the scoring with 12 points and Robyn Stepler added 8.

English said, “We need to put complete, well-balanced games together for the last two weeks. Once again, Erin Pattillo continued to have outstanding play on both sides of the ball.”

The team is back in action Saturday, with a 1:30 game at Mechanicsburg (1:30).
