COLONIAL PARK - Friday night, the Chambersburg boys basketball team worked its way from a deficit in the second half to pull out a tough and much-needed Mid Penn Commonwealth Division win over Central Dauphin East, 51-43.

The Trojans trailed 36-29 in the third quarter, but ripped off a 10-0 run to end the frame, taking the lead thanks to a 3-pointer from Cole Christian at the buzzer to end the period.

Chambersburg (9-9, 6-7 MPC) outscored CD East (11-8, 7-5 MPC) by a 12-7 count in the fourth quarter to lock in the upset win and keep alive its playoff hopes. The Trojans were ranked No 17 in Class AAAA by the end of the night Friday and the top 20 teams qualify.

“It was a huge win,” Chambersburg coach Shawn Shreffler said. “CD East had just beaten Harrisburg, which is first in our league, and they’ve been playing really good basketball.”

ByShawn Mincie led the Trojans with 18 points, followed by Cole Christian with 10.

"They have a really big kid inside, and he hurt us the first time we played,” Shreffler said, “but this time we had a three-headed monster in (Cade) Whitfield, (Tyler) Collier and (Joel) Torres. Those guys battled him all night long.”

Greencastle-Antrim 56, Big Spring 49: Greencastle has found a rhythm in come-from-behind games, and Friday was no exception. The Blue Devils took home a Mid Penn Colonial Division win over Big Spring on Senior Night.

Shippensburg 61, Boiling Springs 46: The Shippensburg Greyhounds used a second-half defensive push to propel them to an important Mid Penn Colonial Division win over Boiling Springs.

After gaining a short lead in the first half, Shippensburg (12-6, 10-1 MPC) stepped up its defense to limit the Bubblers to just seven points in the third quarter.

"Our defense was much better in the second half, and Clayton Stine was really big for us off the bench," Shippensburg coach Ray Staver said. "He had some rebounds and some steals to really give us some momentum in the third and fourth for a good road win."

Shippensburg finished with nine scorers, including six with more than five points.

Stine finished and Shuntan Hickman each finished with nine points, while Wade Mills led the team with 14. Teagan Staver added 11 points for the Greyhounds.

Carter Van Scyoc led the team with eight rebounds, and also scored seven points.

"Cody Gustafson was also big in that second half," Staver said. "He had three or four steals that seemed to end in a layup on the end of every play to stretch our lead even more."
