LaPlante made 31 saves, but the Raiders (1-6, 0-5 in the Mid-Penn Conference's Keystone Division) still fell behind 5-0 in the first half.

Lower Dauphin (7-0, 4-0) took the lead on two goals by Alli Bitting and goals by Katie Spanos, Rachel Yeager and Mary Kate Tarczynski. Yeager scored her goal on a penalty strike.

Taylin Lehman scored the lone goal in the second half on an assist by teammate Logan Gaughen.

LD FOOTBALL: Falcons thump Trojans, 38-0 – but did they impress?

weboverturned9 23 15

So the Lower Dauphin Falcons had just beaten its latest foe, Chambersburg, by a score of 38-0, and their coach offered his critique: Eh.

Coach Rob Klock admits that such a tepid opinion after the lopsided victory over the Trojans (0-3) on Thursday, Sept. 17 victory at Hersheypark Stadium was "kind of funny when you win 38-0.'' But coaches are expected to look at the aesthetic, not just the final score – and he wondered if the Falcons' performance against non-division Chambersburg would be enough against stiffer division competition.

Lower Dauphin (3-0) now faces a slate of division rivals – from the Mid-Penn Conference's Keystone Division – beginning Friday, Sept. 25, when it hosts Susquehanna Twp. (1-2).

"I wish we had performed better, because we're going to play the Keystone Division now,'' Klock said.
