Area roundup - No. 1 Trojans turn back No. 3 Maidens

April 16, 2004


CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Chambersburg beating Waynesboro in softball might soon join death and taxes as the only certainties in this lifetime.

Lindsay Tritle doubled, singled and drove in three runs and October Smith pitched a two-hitter with seven strikeouts as No. 1 Chambersburg kept its unbeaten streak alive against No. 3 Waynesboro, downing the Maidens 11-1 in six innings Thursday in Mid-Penn Commonwealth action.

"We have never lost to Waynesboro," Chambersburg coach Harvey Staver said. "For us, it's an arch-rivalry game. They've thrown some pretty good teams at us over the years, and they're not bad this year. It was a close game for a while."

The Trojans (5-0, 3-0) led 2-0 through four innings, before breaking the game open with four runs in the bottom of the fifth. After Paige Tanner homered in the top of the sixth for Waynesboro (4-2, 3-2) to cut the deficit to 6-1, Chambersburg answered with five in the bottom half of the inning to end the game early by the 10-run mercy rule.


"We're very happy to get back to playing after all that bad weather," Staver said. "And it's great to win."

Melissa Swartz and Rachelle Everhart each had two hits for the Trojans.
