Cohen Redding and Isa Barrios each knocked two balls into the net and Michael Cespedes converted a penalty kick.

“Overall, I thought the boys put in a good performance,” Chambersburg coach Corey Grove said. “Cohen had a really nice first-time finish from outside the 18 for the second goal. Isa won a header to put in our first goal.

“It was also great to get another shutout (4th of the season) as our defense continues to play well. We have a quick turnaround against a stout State College side on Thursday.”

Goalkeeper Drew Cover had to make only one save and assists were produced by Brycen Kuhns, Barrios, Cespedes and Mario Weisman. Chambersburg (5-2) led in shots, 10-3.
