Gabriella Sabatino

Trinity 24, Chambersburg 9: The Trojans played much better in the second half, but by that time the Shamrocks had taken an 18-5 lead in a non-league game in Shiresmantown on Tuesday afternoon.

“We were a very different team in the second half — we scored four goals and they scored six,” Chambersburg coach Keara Allshouse said. “Our defense worked really hard to slow down many fast breaks and our attack played smart offense. I know we can take the positive energy forward into our next game.”

Gabriella Sabatino tallied four goals and added two assists for the Trojans (2-9) — her third game this season with four goals. Hannah Woolf found the net on three of her shots and Ridglee Flohr contributed two goals and a pair of assists.

Goalie Ellie Nicklas made 12 saves.

Reed Myers

State College 3, Chambersburg 0: The Trojans hosted the Little Lions in a Mid Penn Commonwealth match on Tuesday night and State College made the long trip home after a victory.

Chambersburg (1-8, 1-8 MPC) dropped games of 25-17, 25-19 and 25-12.

“We were up for most of the first game, but then State College got on a service run and never looked back,” Trojan coach Ray Frazer said. “State College continued to serve well through the second game and started with an 8-2 lead. We fought back at the end, but couldn’t close the difference. The third game we made a lot of service errors which took us out of the game.”

Wyatt McMullen led in service points with 13, while Vincent Lin and Andrew Holtry each had 10. Cole Myers had 10 assists, 9 kills and 5 kills. Lin had 7 digs, Holtry added 9 kills, Isaiah Sleighter had 3 blocks and Reed Myers made 5 assists.
