“It was the closest thing to a complete game that we’ve had all year,” Chambersburg coach Joey Wilmot said. “That team was much more athletic than we were, had more depth and more  firepower than us. But we showed tonight that we can play with anybody.”

Red Land (10-0) broke out to a 4-2 lead, but the Trojans (4-3) gradually pulled back into a 5-5 tie early in the fourth period.

Wilmot said, “Then we got our first penalty of the game and they scored, then we gave up two more because we were trying to do too much. We didn’t follow the game plan well in the first period, but from then until the fourth we did execute the game plan. We controlled possession; unfortunately, Dom Marangoni was off on his shooting. He kept beating his man, but didn’t score until the fourth period. Their goalie played well (13 saves).”

Marangoni still ended up with two goals, 6 groundballs and 5 caused turnovers, while Sam Kunkleman had a goal and two assists. Riley Harmon had a goal and an assist and Brax Makosy scored a goal. Shea Makosy contributed 8 groundballs.

“(Goalie) Raudel Perez had a great game (14 saves),” Wilmot said, “and Logan Mulkey and Riley Schaeffer did a great job on attack of following the game plan and maintaining possession.”

Red Land 26, Chambersburg 4: The Trojans could not contain the offense of the Patriots and were defeated in a non-league game on Tuesday in Lewisberry.

For Chambersburg (2-6), Gabriella Sabatino scored two goals and had an assist, Ridglee Flohr tallied a pair of goals and Hannah Woolf notched three assists.

Cumberland Valley 3, Chambersburg 0: The Eagles produced big margins of victory in the first two games Tuesday night, then won a close one to complete a Mid Penn Penn Commonwealth win over the Trojans in New Kingstown.

Cumberland Valley (9-1) won 25-15 and 25-6 to take a 2-0 lead, then closed it out with a 25-22 win in Game 3 over Chambersburg (1-5, 1-5 MPC).
