Chambersburg 2, Cedar Cliff 0: Goals by Colton Hunsecker and Luca Gaisbauer carried the Trojans to a Mid Penn Commonwealth victory over the Colts on Thursday night at Trojan Stadium.
“I think our conference this season is probably the most even it’s been since I became the coach,” Chambersburg coach Corey Grove said. “All of the teams have quality and if you don’t come out to play it’s going to be tough to get a result. Cedar Cliff made it tough for us.”
Cristian Lopez was credited with an assist for the Trojans (3-2, 2-1 MPC), who out-shot CC, 17-9, and goalkeeper Drew Cover made 5 saves.
Grove said, “Hunsecker continued his great form and scored his first varsity goal to get us rolling, and Luca Gaisbauer came back from an injury to play in the second half and got us a goal.”

“We had countless (around 30 shots) opportunities, but couldn’t punch one in,” Trojan coach Ed Franchi said. “They did a real good job of getting numbers in the box to defend.
“I really don’t know how we couldn’t find the back of the net, but we have got to find a way to score. That’s what we’ll be working on.”
Clara Meyers made 3 first-half saves for the Trojans, and Sam Paetow made 3 in the second half.
