State College 6, Chambersburg 1: The Trojans took on a strong Little Lions team at Trojan Stadium on Wednesday afternoon and were defeated in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game.

“State College is a great program with a lot of talented girls,” Chambersburg coach Kelsey Baker said. “I was pleased with how the girls played and happy we put one score on the board.
