NEW KINGSTOWN -- After falling into a double-digit hole, Chambersburg’s boys basketball team had its work cut out for it Tuesday night.

The Trojans scrapped their way back and even tied the game late in the fourth quarter, but it just wasn’t enough to overcome Cumberland Valley in a 57-54 Mid Penn Commonwealth Division loss.

“CV did a nice job down the stretch, but I was pleased with how resilient we were,” Chambersburg coach Shawn Shreffler said. “It was a great game in terms of getting a lot of guys a lot of playing time. We had a number of players get in the game and contribute, which will help us continue to grow and get better.”

Late in the game, there was a particular play that Shreffler said really took the air out of Chambersburg (2-1, 0-1 MPC). With the game tied, ByShawn Mincie drove toward the basket. Shreffler said he thought Mincie did well to avoid the defender and sunk a layup that would’ve given the Trojans a lead. But a charge was called instead.

“That was kind of a big play late in the game that didn’t go our way, and that made it tough,” Shreffler said.

Chambersburg’s offense was led by Cole Christian with 15 points. Cade Whitfield finished with 13 points and five rebounds, and Mincie scored 11.
