“We didn’t get too up and down, we played solid the whole game,” Chambersburg coach Ed Franchi said. “We played well together and we were unselfish.”

Greencastle (0-1), a PIAA semifinalist last year in 5A, rallied to tie the Trojans twice, and 1-1 and 2-2, both on goals by Haley Noblit.

Chambersburg (2-0) went ahead 1-0, and then 2-1 at halftime. Both goals were scored by Kadence Decker off assists from Lily Nichter.

After Noblit tied it for a second time, Cramer twice received through balls from Summer Jones, and was able to convert on breakaways on both occasions.

Franchi said, “In the second half they had the better of play, but we were countering quickly. We used our speed up top, delivered some good passes and did a good job finishing.”

The Trojans led in shots, 8-6, and G-A had more corner kicks, 4-2.

Greencastle-Antrim 3, Chambersburg 2: For the second time this week, the Trojans went to a fifth set and were edged 16-14; on Thursday evening it was at Greencastle against the Blue Devils in a non-league match.

“It was a good match between two solid teams,” Trojan coach Ty Frelin said. “Greencastle served very tough and kept us out of system throughout the match. We did some nice things and never gave up. That shows the heart this team has.”

Addi Kegerreis led in three categories for Chambersburg — service points (18, with 4 aces), kills (13) and digs (25). Marah Lehman contributed 20 digs and 8 kills.
