Chambersburg roundup: CV bests Trojans in soccer

Kadence Decker

Cumberland Valley 3, Chambersburg 2: The Trojans held a lead twice on the Eagles, but CV fought back to claim a Mid Penn Commonwealth victory  at New Kingstown on Wednesday evening.

Kadence Decker scored the first goal for the Trojans (5-6, 2-5 MPC) and Cumberland Valley pulled even right away. But before the first half ended, Aubrey Pyne scored again for Chambersburg — both goals were assisted by Ahsia Thomas.

CV finally tied the game with 9 1/2 minutes left, and got the game-winner on a penalty kick for a handball with 5 minutes left.

“I would say this was our most complete game of the year,” Trojan coach Ed Franchi said. “I feel bad for the players who fought so hard and came up just short.”

Cumberland Valley 2, Chambersburg 0: The Eagles, ranked No. 1 in District 3, defeated the Trojans, ranked No. 3, in a Mid Penn Commonwealth contest at Trojan Stadium on Wednesday night.

CV had more shots (4-3) and corner kicks (4-3) than Chambersburg (8-3, 4-3 MPC), which had a seven-game win streak halted.

“We got outplayed,” Trojan coach Corey Grove said. “CV is a top team and we’d have to be nearly perfect to get results and we were far from it. It’s a good learning experience for our boys to stay humble.”

Kaylie Hanna

Central Dauphin 3, Chambersburg 1: The Trojans tried to rally by taking the third game 26-24, but the Rams ended it with a win in the next game, 25-21, to take a Mid Penn Commonwealth win Wednesday night in Linglestown.

Kaylie Hanna led in kills with 8 and Kate Etter had 7 for Chambersburg (1-9, 0-6 MPC).  Morgan Stockslager had 5 blocks and Hanna added 3.

Ashli Ganoe (11) and Addi Kegerreis (9) led in service points. Ganoe had 17 assists, while Paige Davis had 14, and Etter (14) and Karley Skultety (10) led in digs.
