The Trojans were even able to give starting goalie Olivia Fox a breather in the second half, as freshman Tessa Stager slotted in between the sticks for the second period.

With the win, Hershey jumped Lampeter-Strasburg to claim the number one spot in District 3 AA. The Trojans remain undefeated with a 9-0 record, and have already bested top competition such as State College and Cumberland Valley.

Hershey looks like a real threat to claim the District 3 crown, as the team was reclassified into the 2A class instead of the tougher 3A.
