CARLISLE - The last time out against Carlisle, the Chambersburg girls basketball team lost by just one point.

This time, on the road, the Lady Trojans tried to change the pace, but got the opposite result, as Carlisle completed the season sweep, beating Chambersburg 63-61 in a Mid Penn Commonwealth Division game.

“It was a tight game the whole way through,” Chambersburg coach Barry Purvis said. “We got into some foul trouble early in the first half and tried to hold on through it.”

Chambersburg’s leading scorer, Lindsay Embly, fouled out with six minutes left in the fourth quarter, making a big difference in the game, although the Trojans outscored the Herd by two in the fourth period.

Embly finished with 22 points, while Taylor Vrabel had the best game of her career, scoring career-high 24 points for the Trojans, who finished 1-21 (0-14 MPC).

Chambersburg sank 24 of 35 free throws, to Carlisle's 11 of 33.

The Blue Devil starters played in only the first and third periods and outscored the Polar Bears 52-13 in that time.

Northern Bedford 57, McConnellsburg 49: McConnellsburg dropped its second straight Sideling Hill League/Inter-County Conference game in a tough loss to Northern Bedford.

Trailing 32-29 at halftime, the Panthers outscored the Lady Spartans 28-17 in the second half. All but six of McConnellsburg’s points in the second half came from free throws, nine from Bronwyne Mellott, who shot 12-for-14 from the line.

“It was another real tight game,” Forbes Road coach Jeff Gelvin said. “We had a few chances late in the game to tie it up, but we have to figure out a way to play in these close games.”

Forbes Road was outscored 21-17 in the second half to give Southern Huntingdon the edge.

“We missed a couple easy shots and a couple outside shots and that was the difference,” Gelvin said.

Mercersburg 53, St. Maria Goretti 42: Mercersburg Academy held onto a narrow lead for most of the game, and secured a victory over St. Maria Goretti in the Independent-Parochial School League championship game.

"Our defense really made the difference tonight, especially in the second half when we limited their ability to drive to the basket,” Blue Storm coach Katie LaRue said. “It wasn't a perfect performance, but we did what we needed to do. It was great to see several players step up in the fourth period when the outcome was still in doubt."

The Blue Storm (11-2) led by five points at the end of the third but took a hit when Isiuwa Oghagbon, who tied a team-high 13 points, picked up her fourth foul. Sarah Lyman held down her spot until she re-entered the game midway through the fourth quarter, and Joana Santos and Oghagbon made a few key buckets to ensure the victory.

Santos also scored 13 points, and Lyman finished with 11 points and nine rebounds. Tori Yoder had eight points and eight rebounds to help Mercersburg avenge an earlier loss to the Gaels.
