DuBois defeats Punxsy on walk-off, 4-3

May 11, 2011

DUBOIS — Twice Wednesday, the Punxsy baseball team scored the go-ahead run or runs in the top of an inning. Also twice, DuBois was there to answer soon thereafter.

Unfortunately for the Chucks, DuBois' final go-ahead runs came in the last inning, as Dom Kriner's two-run, walk-off single pushed the Beavers past Punxsy at Showers' Field in DuBois, 4-3.

DUBOIS — Wednesday's 4-1 score doesn't fully represent how close the DuBois boys' tennis team's victory over Punxsy in the District IX Class AAA Team Tournament Finals in DuBois.

After the Chucks fell behind 2-0, they won a doubles match and were ahead during the No. 1 singles and No. 2 doubles matches. Punxsy couldn't hold onto either lead and had to settle for runner-up distinction for the third time in four seasons.

Lady Raiders split doubledip with Bradford

May 11, 2011

BROOKVILLE — Senior Night was bittersweet for senior outfielder Chey Ross and the rest of Brookville softball team Wednesday afternoon in Brookville.

Ross was happy she tripled and drove in a run and helped the team win Game One 8-2, but was equally as frustrated that the Lady Raiders (3-8) fell to Bradford 15-4 in six innings in the Game Two.

"It felt really good to be able to hit and score off it, too," Ross said. "I thought the first game would be a booster. I don't know what changed (in the second game). We need to pick it up."

PUNXSUTAWNEY — In the highly-competitive grocery world, Ben Levy said his family, which owns the Jefferson Wholesale Grocery Company, has found that a certain story from the Bible plays out only in the Bible.

“David beat Goliath only in the Bible,” he said, citing his company as the small David, competing against larger, Goliath-sized “big-box retailers” of the grocery industry.
