F-F H.S. Highlights Sept. 3
The Chambersburg boys soccer team stretched its unbeaten streak to 10 games Monday with a quality non-league win on the road.
The Trojans' Nathan Maynard converted a penalty kick with 14 minutes left to give his team a 3-2 victory over Gettysburg, which came in 11-2 and was ranked third in Class 3A in District 3.
It doesn't get any easier for the depleted Trojans (8-2-2), who hosted District 3's top Class 3A team, Lower Dauphin (13-0), on Tuesday night at Trojan Stadium. Chambersburg is currently ranked No. 3 in 4A.
"With the low numbers we have, and the players we have on the field, I'm extremely proud of these guys," Trojan coach Corey Grove said. "Even though we have a lot of kids out, we're still getting results against good teams."
Matt Yingling put the Warriors on the board just 3:35 into the game. Rafael Bonilla scored his first goal of the season to tie it for Chambersburg, then Yingling scored again. But before halftime, the Trojans' Cameron Dale hit the net to tie it up again.
The winning PK came after Rene Quintanilla was taken down in the box.
Grove said, "Rene drew the foul and Nate finished it. He is just so composed over the ball."
James Buchanan 4, Big Spring 3, 2OT: With just 3 minutes left in the second overtime and almost no light left in the sky, the Rockets got a goal by Connor Fritsche to send Big Spring to a Mid Penn Colonial defeat.
Alex Truett and Isaac Shenton gave JB (4-9, 2-7 MPC) a 2-0 lead and Truett’s second goal made it 3-2, but Connor O’Brien tied it with five minutes for the Bulldogs. Big Spring’s other two goals were on penalty kicks, while Derek Pine had two assists for the Rockets.
McConnellsburg 2, Chestnut Ridge 1, 2OT: Landon Seiders netted the game-winner with 6:59 gone in the first overtime period to lift the Spartans to their second 2-1 OT victory over the Lions this season. Ridge took a first-half lead, but Seiders scored his first goal to tie the game. Josh Booth assisted on the final goal and Hunter Souders made nine saves in goal for McConnellsburg (7-1-1, 6-0-1 SHL).

Broadfording 3, Fannett-Metal 0: Emily Metcalfe led the Tigers with seven kills, and four aces, but it was not enough to lift Fannett-Metal over Broadfording, which claimed a non-league match 28-26, 25-21, 25-22. Haleigh Dunkle had three aces for the Tigers (1-13).

MacKenzie Oberholzer made four saves to preserve the shutout for Greencastle (7-5), which has won four of its last five games.
G-A coach Rebecca Rice said, “The girls came out fired up for Senior Night, and it showed in our time of possession at their end. We were only able to score one goal, but stifling defense and were able to neutralize their speed.”
West Perry 5, Shippensburg 1: The Lady Hounds drew within 2-1 when Maddie Kline scored off a pass from Zoe Holtry two minutes into the second half, but the Mustangs pulled away. Shippensburg (6-7, 5-5 MPC Colonial) was outshot 21-5.
