Chambersburg 11, State College 2: For the third time in 10 days, the Trojans squared off against the Little Lions, and won for the third time, in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Tuesday on the road.
The Trojans (13-1, 9-1 MPC) scored two runs in the first inning, five in the second and three in the third to take control. Erin Pattillo started the game on the mound and went five innings, allowing no runs, five hits and two walks while striking out four.

Also, Pattillo was 3-for-4 with two runs knocked in, Katie Robinson was 2-for-3 with a double and her second home run of the season, and Samantha Paetow drove in three runs.
“We decided to shuffle the bottom of the lineup to give some other girls a chance to produce and they did,” Trojan coach Chris Skultety said. “Robinson, Ganoe and (Mackenzie) Stake (1-for-2, RBI) all had nice games to turn the order over to our big guns. Pattillo continues to set the table and Runk just keeps crushing it.
“The girls keep playing hard and are getting better every day. We have put ourselves in great position and now just have to finish.”
Central Dauphin 3, Chambersburg 0: The Rams proved to be too strong Tuesday evening and collected wins of 25-17, 25-18 and 25-14 to defeat the Trojans in a Mid Penn Commonwealth match.
