CHAMBERSBURG >> Chambersburg's girls soccer team was shut out 4-0 by Cedar Cliff Thursday in a Mid Penn Commonwealth Division game.
All of the action was in the first half as the Colts stacked the score thanks to corners and free kicks. Cedar Cliff netted two goals off corner attempts and another on a free kick in the first 40 minutes of play.
"We've done an exceptional job defending set pieces for most of the season," Chambersburg coach Eric Guyer said. "Ten corners are a lot to defend and we just didn't do a good job of staying with our marks through the entire play."
Chambersburg was out-shot 12-7, while goaltender Meg Cottingham defended 10 corner kicks. Chambersburg had just two corner kick attempts.
Guyer said he felt his team was fatigued after playing six games in nine days, plus having the added distraction of homecoming.
"I was pleased after we talked at halftime that the girls kept their composure and played hard the second half," he said. "They created some chances and held Cedar Cliff scoreless."
