Chambersburg (1-11) broke out to a 4-1 lead, but couldn’t sustain the momentum against Delone (1-9).

“We started the game short-handed with two midfielders out, then two more guys went out,” Trojan coach Joey Wilmot said. “We played the last three quarters with only four middies and didn’t have enough juice to come back. Dom Marangoni (3 goals, 2 assists) didn’t have his best game, but played with a lot of heart — he was the only midfielder able to play more than 10 minutes.

“Adam Wenger and Riley Harmon played most of the game there, and Chase Martin moved up from defensive mid. They were willing to try to help us. Our scouting report said that Delone was all about two guys (on attack), we let them score six and five goals, respectively.”

Brady Kunkleman and Sam Kunkleman each had two goals and an assist and Wenger scored once.

“Wenger showed some courage to go to goal tonight a few times and he was rewarded with a nice goal,” Wilmot said. “We need more of that out of him. (Goalie) Kristian Freeman had some nice saves and Carson Forrester won 13 of 23 faceoffs — his effort was admirable.

“We need more guys who can match the toughness of Marangoni. He’s the hardest-working player on the field, he creates almost all of our offense, he’s our best defensive player, leads the team in caused turnovers and ground balls. And he gets double-teamed almost every game.”
