Chambersburg 8, Lower Dauphin 5: The Trojans led 7-2 late in the third quarter, then gave up an soft goal with 0.9 left, leading to a 3-0 run by the Falcons. But Brax Makosy scored with two minutes left to right Chambersburg’s ship and it held on for a non-league road victory Thursday night.
“I was talking to my assistants before this game about how this was a great opportunity for us to show how much we have all improved,” Trojan coach Joey Wilmot said. “We want to be a playoff team this year and LD was a team we needed to show we could beat. It was a big confidence boost for us to win without (injured) Shea Makosy.”
Carson Forrester won an incredible 16 of 18 faceoffs (“Maybe the most dominant game at faceoff we’ve ever had,” Wilmot said) and also had 9 groundballs. Goalie Raudel Perez made 10 saves. Dom Marangoni scored twice and had 2 assists and 6 groundballs, and also had 5 caused turnovers to become the program’s all-time leader in that stat.
“Even on an off night offensively, Dom played fantastic defense, as did Owen Shearer,” Wilmot said. “We played excellent team defense for three quarters.”
For the Trojans (4-1), Sam Kunkleman and Riley Harmon each scored twice and Riley Schaeffer had one, while Brax Makosy had 2 assists and Kunkleman had one.

“A huge shout out to Ashlee Barrett for having her best defensive game to date. We played a high pressure game all-around with a tone of heart and hustle.”
