State College uses 2nd-half surge to beat Chambersburg girls’ soccer

After staking Chambersburg to an early two-goal lead, the State College girls’ soccer team roared back in the second half for a 5-2 victory Saturday afternoon at Memorial Field.

Erica Freese scored two goals and assisted on another to lead the Lady Little Lions (4-7, 4-5 Mid Penn Conference) in their annual Pink Zone game. Payton Porter had a goal and an assist, Makenzie Graham converted on a penalty kick and Sophie Bollinger completed the scoring, all in the second half.

The Trojans’ Gabby Lecuona accounted for both of her team’s goals for a 2-0 lead a minute into the second half.

Ali Wicks made four saves to earn the win in the net.

State College returns to Memorial Field to host Cedar Cliff on Tuesday.
