Chambersburg pulled away from State College with a pair of second-half goals to earn a 3-0 Mid Penn Conference boys’ soccer victory on Tuesday.

Erik Espinosa accounted for all the Trojans’ scoring, burying a penalty kick in the final two minutes to complete the hat trick

“We played really well, especially in the second half,” Little Lions coach Danny Orton said. “We hit the post and missed a (penalty kick), so we were very unlucky. We just need to keep believing and trust that the chances we're creating will turn to goals”

The Little Lions (3-4) held a 23-12 shot advantage on Chambersburg (6-0), with Ty Leway making nine saves.
