Waynesboro had a tough test awaiting them in Week 5 as undefeated Shippensburg was looking to stop the win streak. Ship got off to an early start on offense, dominating to a 33-7 lead in the third quarter. Waynesboro found signs of life with a rugby scrum touchdown on the goalline to make it 33-14. Ensuing onside kick from Waynesboro fell right into ship hands and that ended it as a 33-14 win for Shippensburg.
