Chambersburg roundup: Trojans girls rout State College; boys win 3rd in a row

GIRLS BASKETBALL
Chambersburg 53, State College 10: The Trojans’ defense was stifling Friday night in a Mid Penn Commonwealth victory over State College, just a week after the Little Lions edged Chambersburg 38-34.

Erin Pattillo

Erin Pattillo broke loose for 21 points, including hitting 6 of 9 from the foul line. That is her career-high point total and is the most points any Chambersburg girls player has scored for at least three years.

Trojan coach Justin English said, “We actually put a whole game together and played like we are capable of. Congrats to our seniors — what a way to end their careers here at the field house.

“We don’t give out  individual end of the year awards, but hands down Erin has been our MVP this year. She came in with a great mindset and great attitude and it has paid off. She had six steals in addition to her points, and that career high was well-deserved.”

Also for Chambersburg (5-11, 4-8 MPC), Kiki Walker knocked in a pair of threes and scored 10 points, and Robyn Stepler added 8 points.

The Trojans led 12-0 after one quarter, then blitzed the Little Lions (3-9) 22-3 in the second as Stepler and Pattillo each scored 6 points and Walker had 5.

Chambersburg finishes its season Saturday at 2:30 at Red Land.

“Hopefully, we can end the season with one more win,” English said.

BOYS BASKETBALL
Chambersburg 59, State College 52: The Trojans held the Little Lions scoreless for nearly a four-minute stretch in the fourth quarter and padded their lead at the free throw line at the same time and took down State College in a Mid Penn Commonwealth road game Friday night.

Dru Bowling

It was the third-straight win for Chambersburg (3-12, 2-9 MPC).

The Trojans led 47-38 with 5:50 left when a Little Lion foul put them in the bonus and Chambersburg attempted only one more shot from the field the rest of the way. A three-point play by State College’s Trey Oyler with just over five minutes left brought his team to within 49-41, but the Lions did not score again until there was 1:15 left.

In the meantime, the Trojans sank 7 of 9 shots at the foul line, including 4 of 5 by Dru Bowling, to increase their lead to 56-43. For the game, Chambersburg made 21 of 30 free throws, while the Lions (2-8) were just 3 of 8.

“The guys played an extremely good first half (leading 34-23),” Trojan coach Shawn Shreffler said. “They shared the rock offensively, limited defensive possessions to one contested shot, took multiple charges to shut down the paint and received contributions from a variety of sources.”

In the first quarter, Gus Mace (11) and Noah Yeager (7) scored all of Chambersburg’s points. Mace finished with 17, Jayden Jones had 11 and Bowling scored a career-high 8.

Shreffler said, “Dru Bowling was pressed into major minutes and responded well. Nevin Yeager came off the bench and collected four charges. Getting to the line in the fourth quarter helped seal the win.”
