High school football: Trojans roll past Indians

September 07, 2012|By TIM KOELBLE |

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — For the second straight week, Chambersburg had no problem punching out an opponent from Franklin County.

Coming off last week’s 49-7 win at Greencastle, the Trojans opened the home portion of their season with a 47-0 victory over Waynesboro.

It’s not that Chambersburg rolled up a pile of yards offensively — only 281.

The Trojans got plenty of help from both special teams.

Chambersburg blocked a punt in the first quarter and a pair of bad snaps by Waynesboro in the second period gave the Trojans beautiful field position.

Jamal Pickett set the tone early with a one-play scoring drive — a 38-yard touchdown run — after Waynesboro opened the game going four-and-out.

Chambersburg’s next possession resulted in another score as Jordan Brown’s 41-yard run set up a 22-yard touchdown run by the fleet-footed Tay Charles.

Before the first period ended, Trevon Brumfield broke through the Indians’ line to block a punt that resulted in a safety for a 16-0 Trojans lead.

Chambersburg’s first effort in the second quarter resulted in a 25-yard field goal by Kane Snider, who was also perfect with all six PATs.

J.T. Hopple connected with Zane Stewart for a 12-yard touchdown, and Ryan Martin’s 19-yard touchdown run put Chambersburg up 33-0 at halftime.

With the clock running to begin the second half, Chambersburg tacked another score as Hopple connected with Jordan Brown for a 51-yard score.

Pickett scored at the outset of the fourth quarter with a run from the 7

Hopple threw only seven passes, connecting on six for 111 yards, including four to Brown for 68 yards.

The Trojans kept the Indians in minus yardage on the ground with a negative 18. Quartebak Connor Fetterhoff was 11-of-23 in the air for 97 yards.
