Chambersburg rallies to hand Carlisle 4-2 defeat

Chambersburg's boys soccer team opened its season with back-to-back 1-0 defeats.

When the Trojans went behind 1-0 on the road at Carlisle on Saturday night, things didn't look good.

But Chambersburg scored four straight goals to open the second half and claimed a 4-2 Mid Penn Commonwealth Division victory at Millen Stadium.

"Carlisle is a good team and when we went behind, we could have maybe thought, 'Here we go again,'" Trojan coach Corey Grove said. "But once we got one we kept going."

Nathan Maynard broke the ice for Chambersburg (1-2, 1-2 MPC) with an unassisted tally six minutes into the second half. He was followed by Griffin Redding, then Maynard again, and Cameron Dale capped the scoring spree with 15 minutes left in the game.

Grove said, "It's about time we knocked that door down after two shutouts. We were only shut out twice last year, so we're not used to that."

Alex Henry put the Herd on top in the first half, and it was nearly 2-0.

"JD (goalkeeper Jacob Dougal) made an incredible save when it was 1-0 - he batted it away at the last second," Grove said. "He had another good game."
