HARRISBURG -- Chambersburg started its girls basketball game Tuesday night well enough, but it couldn’t keep up the pace in a 74-24 Mid Penn Commonwealth Division loss at the hands of Harrisburg.

“We jumped on them, 4-0, in the first quarter, but then it went downhill very fast,” Trojan coach Barry Purvis said. “They’re very quick, and that (Tysha) Brown girl can really shoot. We had no answer for her, and had too many turnovers again.”

The Trojans (1-4, 0-3 MPC) finished with 29 turnovers, and Brown had more points than Chambersburg. She finished with 28.

“They’re just better athletes than we are right now,” Purvis said.

Lindsay Embly was a bright spot for the Trojans. She had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Taylor Vrabel finished with four points and eight boards.
