Chambersburg 2, Carlisle 1: Cole Myers scored both goals for the Trojans in a Mid Penn Commonwealth victory over the Thundering Herd at Ken Millen Stadium on Thursday night.
“Tonight was a must-win for us,” Chambersburg coach Corey Grove said, “especially coming off a disappointing loss Tuesday. Carlisle is always a tough place to play, so I was pleased we were able to get a result tonight. Cole Myers continued his impressive run of goals (one via penalty kick).
“Cohen Redding and Andrew Quach played nice games in the middle of the field for us. Those boys really sacrifice for their teammates with the amount of minutes they’ve logged all season.”
The Herd held an advantage in corner kicks (2-0), and trailed in shots, 7-6. Trojan goalkeeper Drew Cover made 5 saves. Myers leads the team with 8 goals.
Carlisle 2, Chambersburg 0: The Trojans gave up a goal in each half and dropped another tough one in Mid Penn Commonwealth play at Trojan Stadium on Thursday night.
The Herd (10-2, 7-2 MPC) scored a good goal in the first half, then clinched the win in the second half when the Chambersburg defense made a mistake and gave up a breakaway score.
“We played hard in the first half and I think we led in shots, 6-3,” Chambersburg coach Ed Franchi said, “but they scored on a really nice goal. Then we dominated in the second half and had plenty of shots, but just couldn’t score. They have a good keeper (Madalyn Brymesser) and she made one really nice save. We need to find ways to put our shots in the net. Our strikers need to do a better job of sharing the ball and finding the feet (of teammates). If that happens, hopefully we’ll score more.”
The Trojans (5-7-1, 3-6 MPC) held a 13-5 advantage in shots.
Cedar Cliff 3, Chambersburg 1: For the second time this season, the Colts handed the Trojans a 3-1 defeat in Mid Penn Commonwealth play, this on Thursday night on the road.

The Colts took the first game 25-22, the Trojans (5-7, 2-6 MPC) grabbed the second 25-23, but Cedar Cliff won the last two, 25-19 and 25-20.
