Aubrey Pyne

Chambersburg 5, State College 0: The Trojans went ahead 2-0 by halftime and stretched that lead with a big second half on their way to a Mid Penn Commonwealth victory over the Little Lions on Thursday evening in State College.

“We did a good job of controlling the game and maintaining possession,” Chambersburg coach Ed Franchi said. “We played the ball negatively pretty well today, too.”

For the Trojans (7-7-1, 3-6-1 MPC), Aubrey Pyne knocked in a trio of goals and Lily Cornwell and Ahsia Thomas each hit the back of the net once.

Chambersburg assists came from Lily Nichter (2), Thomas, Cornwell and Ava Kalist.

Alayna Jones

Chambersburg 3, Red Land 0: The Trojans continued their late-season surge by dominating the Patriots in a non-league away match Thursday evening.

Chambersburg (7-10), which has won six of its last seven match, won games of 25-13, 25-16 and 25-12.

In kills, Morgan Stockslager had 10, Addi Kegerreis 5 and Alayna Jones and Kaylie Hanna 4 each, while Kegerreis had 2 blocks and T.T. Kelly had one.

Ashli Ganoe led in service points with 10 (2 aces) and Sam Paetow had 9 points and 3 aces. Paige Davis (18) and Ashli Ganoe (14) led in assists, and the leaders in digs were Karley Skultety (11), Stockslager (11) and Kate Etter (10).

Trojan coach Ty Frelin said, “We came out strong and we executed well throughout the entire match. It was fun to have everyone get some court time. We played relaxed and did some nice things.”

Drew Cover

State College 3, Chambersburg 0: The Trojans failed to score for the third time in four games, with the latest being a Mid Penn Commonwealth game at home vs. the Little Lions on Thursday night.

“We let in three goals in the first 15 minutes due to some sloppy defending,” Chambersburg coach Corey Grove said. “Otherwise, I thought we were again the better team. Losing (leading scorer) Michael Cespedes to a knee injury for he last two games hurts, but we can’t make excuses and have to find results.”

The Trojans (9-5, 5-5 MPC) had more shots (9-6) and corner kicks (3-1). Chambersburg keeper Drew Cover made 4 saves.
