Dom Marangoni

Chambersburg 18, Gettysburg 3: The Trojans won big in their final game of the season, a non-league victory at Gettysburg on Thursday afternoon, in which the team set three individual single-season team records.

Senior Dom Marangoni ended his day with three goals and an assist in the first half, giving him a total of 76 points (goals plus assists) this season, topping the previous mark of 75. Junior Shea Makosy set a new season mark for caused turnovers with 53 — the previous record was held by Marangoni with 43. Finally, senior Carson Forrester broke the record for groundballs in a season. He posted 17 on Thursday to give him the record of 119, beating the old record by one.

“We don’t have single-game records for groundballs, but that’s probably pretty close to won,” Chambersburg coach Joey Wilmot said.

Marangoni finished his stellar Trojan career as first all-time in groundballs, first in caused turnovers, second in assists and second in points.

Wilmot said, “We had 12 different scorers today, and I doubt if that’s been done in program history before.”

Goal scorers, in addition to Marangoni, included Sam Kunkleman (3 goals, 1 assist), Riley Schaeffer (2, 2), Owen Shearer (2, 1), Riley Harmon (1, 1), Garrett Iser (1, 1), one goal each from Logan Mulkey, Shea Makosy, Jackson Beardsley, Quinn Makosy, Brady Fretz and Ayden Younkin, and two assists for Brax Makosy.

Groundball leaders were Shearer and Shea Makosy (7), Marangoni, Kunkleman and Brax Makosy (6) and Dylan Barefoot, Harmon and Beardsley (5). Caused turnover leaders were Shearer (6), Brax Makosy (5) and Shea Makosy (4).

Julian Elia

Gettysburg 11, Chambersburg 8: The Trojans played short-handed for much of the game and put up a good fight before falling to the Warriors in a non-league game Thursday night at Trojan Stadium in their season finale.

“I am so proud of how these ladies battled tonight,” Chambersburg coach Keara ALlshouse said. “We played a player down for 30 total minutes and two players down for the final 11.”

Hannah Woolf found the net three times for the Trojans (3-13), while Grbriella Sabatino and RSidglee Flohr each scored twice. Ellisa Gamby Mickey scored the first goal of her career and added an assist.

Allshouse said, “Our senior captain, Julian Elia, played the best defensive game of hour four-year varsity career tonight. I am so proud of the hard work and resilience this team displayed this season. I cannot wait to see what next year brings.”
