Chambersburg roundup: Big innings aid Trojans vs. Waynesboro

Chambersburg 11, Waynesboro 1: The Trojans scored in just 2 innings, but 4 runs in the fourth and 7 in the sixth led to a six-inning non-league victory over Waynesboro on Friday afternoon at Greene Township Park.

Cole Yeager

Chambersburg (5-11), winners in 3 of their last 4 games, got a complete game from Cole Yeager (1-1), who allowed just 5 hits, walked 2 and struck out 4.

“Yeager did a really nice job working out of a couple of jams early in the game,” Trojan coach Scott Folmar said. “They had the bases loaded and one out in the third inning, and our middle infield turned a double play, so that was a big momentum change.”

The Trojans managed only 7 hits, but benefited from 7 walks from Indian pitchers. Carter Fogal and Joey Diaz both had 2 hits and 2 runs batted in, and Trevor Holden had 2 hits and one RBI.

In Chambersburg’s sixth inning, it loaded the bases on 2 walks and a fielder’s choice. A walk to Fogal scored the first run, Diaz ripped a 2-run single, an error scored the fourth run, Holden had a run-scoring hit, Adriano Methner was hit by a pitch to bring in a run and Brandon Pattillo hit a sacrifice fly to center to bring in the run that put the 10-run in play and ended the game.

Folmar said, “We took advantage of some free passes in the two innings we scored, but we also had a couple of big hits in situations in which we could open up the game a little bit.”

For Waynesboro (8-8), Logan Clapsaddle had 2 hits, including a double.

Chambersburg 13, Waynesboro 6: The Trojans fell behind the Maidens 6-1 after the top of the third inning, but scored 6 in the fourth and rallied for a non-league victory Friday afternoon at Norlo Park.

Bree Paetow

Chambersburg (12-2) led 8-6 after the big inning, then added 3 in the fifth and 2 more in the sixth.

“We started the first inning on fire with Ky (pitch Kylee Miller) getting two strikeouts, then Beee (Paetow) leading off with an inside-the-park home run,” Trojan coach Chris Skultety said. “Then we fell asleep in the next two innings and they dropped in a few bleeders that cost us runs. Thankfully, we woke up after that and played a solid game.”

Chambersburg put up 15 hits, led by Bree Paetow (3-for-5, 2 RBIs), Addison Gsell (2-for-5, 3 RBIs), Saleena Null (2-for-4, 2 RBIs), Sam Paetow (2-for-4), Abagail Newman (2-for-4, 2 RBIs) and Morgan Stockslager (2-for-4).

Stockslager had a pair of doubles and Sam Paetow, Null, Gsell and Brooke Leedy each hit a double.

Miller (9-1) earned the win with 6 innings of work. She allowed 7 hits and 2 earned runs and struck out 5.

Skultety said, “Sam continues to crush the ball and Mo (Stockslager) had some good swings. Hopefully that will get her going because we need her bat to get hot.”

Chambersburg will finish the championship game of the Big Spring tournament Saturday. The game resumes with the Trojans up 1-0 on Central York in the second inning.

For Waynesboro (7-9), Rylea Shetler had a 2-for-4 performance and drove in 3 runs.

Ellie Nicklas

York Suburban 15, Chambersburg 11: The Trojans had a strong second half, but couldn’t put enough of a dent in a 12-6 halftime deficit and fell to York Suburban in a non-league matchup at Trojan Stadium on Friday night.

“We struggled to wake up in the first half,” Chambersburg coach Keara Allshouse said. “During the second half we turned up the heat and closed the gap, outscoring them 5-3 in the second half.”

Gabriella Sabatino notched 5 goals for the Trojans (3-11) and added an assist. Hanna Woolf tallied 3 times, Taylor Mickey put in 2 goals and Ridglee Flohr had a goal and an assist.

Goalie Ellie Nicklas posted 10 saves, including the 300th of her career.

Allshouse said, “I am very proud of our composure tonight and how we continued to fight until the final buzzer.”
