CLEARFIELD â€” The previously undefeated Punxsy 13- and 14-year old Teener League All-Stars are undefeated no more after a 2-1 loss in eight innings to Clearfield Monday night in Clearfield.
"There was just really good pitching the whole way through," Punxsy coach Doug Byers said. "That pretty much sums up the whole game."
Thomas Summers pitched a complete game for Clearfield, allowing just one run on five hits to earn the win.
Dakota Byers pitched six strong innings for Punxsy, allowing one run on four hits. Byers also struck out six Clearfield hitters.
A few months ago, someone asked me what my dream job would be. I told them that being a sports reporter would be the ideal position for me.
My passion for sports, writing and photography could all be blended together somehow to make the perfect position to fit my talents.
Unfortunately, I didn't realize this truth before I pursued my advanced education, and when I went to college, I studied mathematics and earned a master's in religious studies afterward.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Both construction and demolition continue to move along at a fast pace at the corner of Pine and North Gilpin streets at what is to be known as Grace Place, a senior living facility.
Demolition began Monday on a portion of the former Grube Hospital building. The portion of the building that is adjacent to Pine Street is being razed to make room for Grace Place, a 24-unit housing complex for moderate-income seniors.
The $6.5 million project is being constructed by the Jefferson Area Lutheran Social Ministry and Trek Development.
