Ashli Ganoe had 8 service points and 13 assists for the Trojans (0-5, 0-3 MPC) and Kate Etter led in kills (7) and digs (16) and scored 6 points.

Jacob Bassham

Trojans place 6th: Chambersburg was edged by two strokes by Lower Dauphin and finished sixth in a Mid Penn Commonwealth boys golf match Thursday at Rich Valley G.C.

Jacob Bassham shot a 75 on the par 71 course to tie for 11th. He notched birdies on holes 6, 8 and 11, and had nines of 38 and 37.

Jeremy Otto scored 77 to tie for fifth place. He was even par 36 on the front, which included birdies on No. 6 and No. 9, then shot 41 on the back.

Also for Chambersburg (3-22), Brady Fretz tied for 27th with an 82, and Fisher Heck and Brady Sites each tied for 38th with 97s.

Breanne Paetow

Chambersburg 1, Cedar Cliff 0: Bree Paetow found the back of the net with 12 seconds left in the first overtime Wednesday night to lift the Trojans to a Mid Penn Commonwealth win over the Colts.

The Trojans are 2-4 (1-3 MPC).

Chambersburg coach Ed Franchi said, “I loved the energy we played with all night, and everyone stayed focused. Cedar Cliff had a strong defense that was tough to get through, but we still created plenty of opportunities.

“We switched our formation in overtime, although that put more pressure on us to win the ball in the midfield. The outside mids did a good job of pinching in and controlling their area and I think that threw Cedar Cliff off.”

Addyson Hollenshead

State College 4, Chambersburg 1: The Trojans traveled to State College on Thursday evening and played the Little Lions tough before falling in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game.

Ella Fatyol scored the goal for Chambersburg (1-5, 0-4 MPC), on an assist by Gracie Mellott.

Trojan coach Makenzie Ocker said, “Addyson Hollenshead played her heart out in goal, saving numerous shots and making one diving save to stop a fast break.

“All over the field the girls played hard and gave it their all — the score doesn’t do justice to the game. Some other standout players from today were Morgan Smith, Jaxin Frazier, Madelyn Predko and Karley Ridegway.”
