Chambersburg roundup: Trojan softball continues onslaught

Chambersburg 15, Cedar Cliff 0: The Trojans have had four games postponed, but they’ve been on fire when they played — Tuesday’s example was a 15-0 whitewash of Cedar Cliff in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game.

Alyssa Brechbill

Chambersburg led 3-0 after four innings, then posted 12 runs in the fifth.

“The girls came out a little slow, which could be expected after another week’s layoff,” Trojan coach Chris Skultety said. “(Alyssa) Brechbill’s bat and (Mackenzie) Stake’s arm kept us in it until the rest got going.”

Stake (3-0) has pitched 11 innings so far, allowing just four hits and striking out 23. Chambersburg (3-0, 3-0 MPC)  has outscored its three opponents 41-1.

Brechbill had a spectacular game batting — “She looked very comfortable at the plate and hit four rockets,” Skultety said — with this hitting line: 4 at-bats, 4 runs cored, 4 hits, 5 RBIs, a double and two home runs.

Samantha Paetow cracked a home run and was 2-for-4 with 3 RBIs. Hannah Runk was 2-for-3, Kenzie Boyd hit a double and had a pair of runs knocked in and Erin Pattillo tripled.

Skultety said, “Hopefully when we start playing on a consistent basis we can find our groove.”

Makeup dates, all at home, include Central Dauphin (this Saturday, 11 a.m.); State College on April 30 (4:15); Central York on May 7 (4:15) and Greencastle-Antrim on May 10 (4:15).

Riley Laite

Central Dauphin 3, Chambersburg 0: Unbeaten Central Dauphin ended a four-match win streak by the Trojans on Tuesday night at CASHS Field House.

The Rams (6-0) won by scores of 25-20, 25-11 and 25-18.

“Aside from game 2, we played hand-in-hand with CD,” Chambersburg coach Marta Helfrick said. “We just struggled to break through in the final points of games 1 and 3. They put up some big swings and tested our defense.”

Riley Laite led in kills for Chambersburg (5-2, 3-2 MPC) with 8 and Camden Etter added 7. The same duo each had 3 block kills and one block.

Etter also led in service points with 11, Jackson Stahl added 8 and Cole Myers had 7. The Rams’ defense allowed no aces. Myers contributed 18 assists and Kyle Ganoe had 8, and Ganoe led with 5 digs.

Helfrick said, “The guys showed fire and fight and we’re going to work to play to that kind of potential on a regular basis. We are headed in the right direction.”

Gabriella Sabatino

Central Dauphin 14, Chambersburg 6: The Trojans got single goals from six different players, but it wasn’t enough to handle the Rams in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game at Trojan Stadium on Tuesday night.

“The girls worked very hard during the second half and hustled through every play and ground ball,” Chambersburg coach Keara Allshouse said. “We showed our resilient nature tonight and that makes me very proud.”

Scoring goals for the Trojans (1-3, 1-1 MPC) were Hannah Woolf, Ann Metzger, Emma Grimm, Ashlyn Barton, Ridglee Flohr and Gabriella Sabatino.

It was the first varsity goals for Sabatino and Metzger. Grimm leads the team with 6 goals.

Carlisle 5, Chambersburg 0: The Trojans were back to full strength Tuesday afternoon for a Mid Penn Commonwealth match against Carlisle, but the Herd proved to be too tough.

Carlisle won all five matches in straight sets. Sam Vessah (No. 1 singles) and Kadyn Taylor (No. 2) each scored three points in their matches. Vessah lost 6-2, 6-1 and Taylor went down 6-1, 6-2. The same score downed Bradley Stahl and Noah Yost at No. 2 doubles.

Central Dauphin 16, Chambersburg 3: The Trojans fell to 1-4 (1-1 MPC) with a road loss to the Rams on Tuesday.

Sam Kunkleman scored two goals and Riley Schaeffer had the other, while Dom Marangoni assisted on all three scores for Chambersburg (1-4, 1-2 MPC).

Freshman Kristian Freeman had his first start in goal and picked up 16 saves.
