Chambersburg roundup: 2 lacrosse players reach 100-point mark

Central Dauphin 8, Chambersburg 7: The Rams erased a 2-goal deficit in the fourth quarter and handed the Trojans a tough defeat Thursday afternoon in Linglestown in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game.

“This one hurt,” Chambersburg coach Joey Wilmot said. “We blew that lead in the fourth quarter. Then, with 20 seconds left (and down a goal), we called a timeout and I misunderstood the situation. I thought we were a man up and put in a play for that. But we weren’t a man up and being in a man-up play messed us up.

“We played hard and the guys were in position to maybe tie it at the end, but I gave them the wrong play to run.”

Goalie Kristian Freeman made 9 saves for the Trojans (4-6, 1-4 MPC).

Shea Makosy continued his run of fine play, scoring 3 goals, picking up 8 groundballs, causing 4 turnovers and winning 7 of 14 faceoffs.

Sam Kunkleman had a goal and an assist, and his goal was the 100th point in his career. He’s only the sixth player in school history to hit the 100-point plateau.

Garrett Iser had a goal and an assist, Logan Mulkey and Riley Harmon each scored once and Harmon added 4 groundballs and 2 caused turnovers. Owen Shearer had 3 groundballs and 3 caused turnovers and Chase Martin put in three caused TOs.

Ridglee Flohr

Central Dauphin 19, Chambersburg 9: Ridglee Flohr reached a career milestone, but the Trojans were not able to slow down the Rams in a Mid Penn Commonwealth defeat Thursday night at Trojan Stadium.

Gabriella Sabatino led Chambersburg (2-7, 0-3 MPC) with 4 goals. Ellisa Gamby-Mickey and Hanna Woolf each scored one goal and Woolf added an assist.

Ellie Nicklas made 6 saves for the Trojans.

Cole Leidig

Central Dauphin won 25-16, fell 25-17, then won 25-14 and 28-26.

“I really thought we were going to win the fourth game, but a couple of calls didn’t go our way and we fell just short. Reed Myers did a great job  defensively with three block kills and five digs, and also had 30 assists.”
