CD girls’ soccer bounces Chambersburg

By Bill Bostic

COLONIAL PARK (April 20) – Off a strong second-half effort, the Lady Rams notched their tenth straight win this season by slapping the Chambersburg Trojans 5-0 Saturday on the artificial turf at Landis Field.

Neither team mustered much offensive pressure in a scoreless first half. With the wind at their backs, the Trojans controlled the ball much of half but couldn’t break through CD's backline. CD's best chance came on a run by Allicia Yurkovic that ended with the ball clanking off the post.

CD quickly displayed its firepower by scoring in lightning-quick fashion in the second half, starting with a goal in the 6th minute of play by Jocelyn Weidner who used some fancy footwork to create space for the shot. Less than 3 minutes later, Allicia Yurkovic deposited one in the back of the net after the Trojan’s goalie mishandled the ball. Yurkovic bagged a second goal on a breakaway off a wind-aided kick by Rams goalkeeper Amy Gouldner.

Sarah Burkhardt (pictured in white jersey) closed out the scoring with two goals, including a 30-yard howitzer that found the top of the Chambersburg net.

Recap of other action Jessie Probst was 2-for-4, including a grand slam, to lift CD's softball team to a 9-0 victory Friday over Cumberland Valley. Probst also picked up the four-hit shutout victory. ... Behind four RBIs by Billy Felo and three hits by Sam Nott, CD's baseball team slammed Cumberland Valley 12-3 Friday. Felo earned the decision, allowing five hits in five innings. Andrew Roman and Nate Shroy chipped in two hits apiece for the Rams. On Saturday, State College sneaked by the Rams 10-9.– The Patriot News

My wife and I were able to get our 4 year old and 8 year old out to see this game on Saturday. The oldest has been playing recreational league for over 4 years now and her younger sister is anxious to play this fall in the rec league too... They had a good time watching this one and eating snacks. It was nice to get to a game since most of the games are right after school and that's a difficult time to get to for a parent with young children.

The CD Girls looked great in the 2nd half. Most of that half was played in Chambersburg's end.

My oldest said she looks forward to seeing the team in the district and state finals again this year. She didn't want to leave last years state finals even with all of the rain!

Go Rams!
