LACROSSE: Monday's roundup, Chambersburg boys get back on track with 14-6 victory

CHAMBERSBURG >> A change was exactly what the doctor ordered for Chambersburg's boys lacrosse team.

Just minutes before a non-league game against South Western on Monday night, Trojan coach Paul Flohr decided to shake things up.

"We actually changed our whole game plan, and a bunch of guys changed positions, like 15 minutes before the game started," Flohr said. "What we were doing wasn't working."

Chambersburg started slow with only one goal in the opening period, but quickly picked things up, scoring five goals in the second quarter en route to a 14-6 victory.

"The guys responded really well," Flohr said. "We just gotta keep doing it. We dug ourselves into a pretty big hole, and they know that. Now we have to dig ourselves."

Jake Pierson paced the Trojans (3-4) with six goals and two assists. Grant Swisher finished with a hat trick and dished out a team-leading four assists. Chase Kunkleman scored twice, while Brandin Cosey and Cedric Adams each scored once.

Mitch Hollar, a senior defender, netted his first goal of his career.

"Mitch had a really nice goal in transition," Flohr said. "He came down and got a real nice shot off a bounce. Defensively, Blake Amsley, the last three or four games, has been a beast. Both of their efforts have been fantastic. Ramsey Snider also played great tonight."

Nate Bradshaw and Clayton Schellhase split time in net, saving four and three shots, respectively.

SOUTH WESTERN 16, CHAMBERSBURG 2 >> South Western scored the final six goals of the first half to turn a 4-2 advantage into a 10-2 lead in its non-league victory over Chambersburg.

Emily Glennon and Liza Ernst scored for the Trojans (2-6) and Ernst's goal made it 4-2. But Lauren Schmidt scored three of her seven goals before the half ended to give the Mustangs (6-3) a big lead.

"It's difficult to come off the bus with focus and intensity," Chambersburg coach Katie Feairheller said. "The girls made several fouls that South Western capitalized on. They are a strong team and their defense played well.

"But our defense made them look for a second and third cutter before they were able to go to goal."

For the Trojans, Madison Schmus had two ground balls and Abby Wilmot and Ernst each had two draw controls.
