Dominic Barbagallo

“We were without Owen Shearer for the whole game and Shea Makosy spent a lot of time in the penalty box, and they are two of the best defenders in the conference,” Chambersburg coach Joey Wilmot said. “But our other (long) poles stepped up and played really well.

“Chase Martin (5 caused turnovers) was fantastic all night and Dom Barbagallo (3 TOs) , Kaden Drawbaugh and Luke Cody played well. Parker King (3 TOs) and Jackson Beardsley played fantastic short stick defense. And Riley Harmon dominated the faceoffs, going 12-for-15.”

“Andrew Holtry played well at the net and led the team with 10 kills (2 block kills). Both of our outside hitters did well offensively with Reid Leidig recording 8 kills and Joseph Byers recording 7 kills.
