Trojans regain dominance of Indians



By ADELINE STAEBLER / Staff Correspondent


WAYNESBORO - The Chambersburg boys soccer team has a history of dominance over Waynesboro. But last Saturday the two teams battled it out for a 1-1 tie.

The teams were after blood and bragging rights when they met again Thursday night in a Mid-Penn Commonwealth league game. and Chambersburg resumed its domination with a 5-3 win over the Indians.

"In Saturday's game (Waynesboro was) beating us to almost every ball," Chambersburg coach Graham Messner said. "We took them lightly on Saturday because we've had some success in the past ... it was a reality check for our guys in that I'm not lying when I tell you they're coming in here to beat you, they don't want your autograph."

The Trojans (9-6-2, 2-5-2) scored seven minutes into the game when Scott Little scored his first of the season off an assist by Nathan Wingerd. He followed it up almost 15 minutes later with an unassisted goal that put Chambersburg up, 3-0.

"For the first goal, I went for a through ball and tapped it over the goalie's head," Little said. "And the second one, it bounced off the goalie and it just went in."

The Indians (5-9-1, 1-7-1) scored with about eight and a half minutes left in the first half when John Weber fed Phil Woodring the ball.

Waynesboro scored again with 15 minutes left in the game when Brian Sandifer scored with an assist by Nick Kipe, who then scored with three minutes left in the game on Zach Tanner's assist.

"(Chambersburg was) more fired up because they were stung a little. They're not used to getting tied by us," Waynesboro coach Steve Tanner said. "They're used to beating us and I think it was a little intimidating because we knew they'd be coming out real strong."

Jeff Boushell had an unassisted goal for the Trojans. Drew Wellman and Wingerd each had goals. Kevin Roland and Andrew Mackey each had an assist.

"I thought we came out early and I thought we were (physical) and I thought we asserted ourselves in that way," Messner said. "We put them under pressure and they made some mistakes and we made them pay."

Chambersburg goalkeeper Mike Richards had 11 saves. Chris Gillilard and James Woodring combined for 10 saves in goal for the Indians.
