BOYS SOCCER: Saturday's roundup, Chambersburg picks up victory over Waynesboro
CHAMBERSBURG >> Chambersburg's boys soccer team ran its winning streak to six games on Saturday by shutting out county rival Waynesboro 6-0 in a non-league encounter at Trojan Stadium.
Eric Dixon and Erik Espinoza each scored a pair of goals for the Trojans (10-2-2), who scored three goals in each half.
"The main thing – other than getting a shutout – was that we did the things we worked on in practice last week," Chambersburg coach Corey Grove said. "We need to move better off the ball, getting behind the defense and working more combination play. I thought every goal we scored today was a great goal – you could see it really working."
John Ramirez and Rafael Bonilla also found the back of the net for the Trojans, and assists went to Espinoza, Nathan Maynard, Griffin Redding, Dixon, Chuy Munoz and Inigo Macias.
For the Indians (6-9-1), goalkeeper James Barr made 10 saves.
Grove said, "It was nice to get Inigo back from an injury. We're pretty healthy and we're progressively getting better."

JAMES BUCHANAN 2, NORTHERN BEDFORD 2, 2OT >> James Buchanan fell behind early in its non-league matchup against Northern Bedford, allowing the Panthers to take a 2-0 lead in the first half, but fought back to tie the game thanks to a two-goal performance from Isaac Shenton.
The Rockets had momentum headed into overtime thanks to Shenton's goals late in the second half, but didn't capitalize in extra time. James Buchanan (0-14-2) missed an open-net shot in the first 10 seconds of overtime, and spent both overtime periods on the attack, sending numerous shots at Northern Bedford keeper Jake Ishelman.
"This is a game we wish we could start again. Northern Bedford started the game with a good pace and capitalized on their opportunities," JB coach Randy Jarrett said.
