LEWISTOWN >> Chambersburg's field hockey team wasn't at its best in the first half on Monday afternoon.

As a result, MIfflin County blitzed the Trojans for four goals before the break in a 5-0 Mid Penn Commonwealth Division victory.

Chambersburg (2-3, 1-3 MPC) managed just five shots on goal. The Huskies opened the scoring less than five minutes in and made it 2-0 with a goal 11 minutes later. They scored two more before the end of the half, and added one more to put away the game for good.

"We did not show up to play today until midway through the second half," Chambersburg coach Jen Amsley said. "We were simply outplayed. Rachel Dusman and Madison Schmus gave 150 percent today."

Ariana Burke racked up 13 saves for Chambersburg. Mifflin County held a 10-3 advantage in penalty corners.

BIG SPRING 2, GREENCASTLE 1 >> Greencastle-Antrim got off to a rough start, and it was costly in a Mid Penn Colonial Division loss to Big Spring.
