NEW KINGSTOWN >> Cumberland Valley scored two goals in the first minute of Thursday's girls soccer game, and it was all downhill from there for Chambersburg in a 9-0 Mid Penn Commonwealth Division loss.
"It was not easy getting the team excited about finishing the year with CV," Trojan coach Eric Guyer said. "Our goal was to play hard and improve on our first meeting a few weeks ago. It's hard to keep focus and working when a team nets two goals within the first minute but despite the constant attack and multiple goals, the girls remained composed, played hard and displayed good sportsmanship throughout."
The Trojans (7-10-1, 6-8 MPC) were held without a shot or a corner kick. Megan Cottingham finished with 10 saves.
"Meg Cottingham made several huge saves tonight," Guyer said. "Overall, the team gave a phenomenal effort this season and were close in most of our games. With little rest during the week and level of competition we play, that's something they should be proud of."

MCCONNELLSBURG 1, TUSSEY MOUNTAIN 0 >> McConnellsburg played Sideling Hill League game Thursday against Tussey Mountain that more closely resembled a game of pin-ball, according to Spartan coach Toby McGarvey said. McConnellsburg shutout Tussey Mountain 1-0.
"It wasn't a pretty win, but it was a win," McGarvey said. "It was sort of a crazy game, lot of shots on goal... the best thing I can come up with is it looked like a game of pin-ball."
