Chambersburg 8, Palmyra 5: The Trojans picked up a big non-league victory Friday night at Trojan Stadium over the Cougars, who were picked to finish third in the Mid Penn Keystone.
Chambersburg (3-0) broke out to a 5-1 lead, but Palmyra slowly clawed back into it, getting to within 5-4 early in the fourth quarter. But the Trojans scored four of the final five goals, sparked by Riley Harmon, to salt away the win.
“Great team effort,” Chambersburg coach Joey Wilmot said. “There was 11 minutes left when they made it 5-4, but we scored 3 goals in 3 minutes and we held on.
“Defense dominated. Chase Martin covered Palmyra’s best player and held him to one goal on two shots and turned him over multiple times. Shea Makosy, Owen Shearer and Martin combined for 12 caused turnovers (4 each). We held them to 13 shots and forced more turnovers than they had shots, which is impressive.”
Sam Kunkleman, Logan Mulkey and Harmon each had 2 goals, Brax Makosy and Shea Makosy (5 groundballs) each had a goal and an assist and Ryan Cosey assisted twice.
