Pennington, who will begin his sophomore year at Allegany College of Maryland this fall, allowed just one hit and an unearned run during John J. Fisher Post No. 62 of Punxsutawney's 2-1 victory over DuBois at Showers Field.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Leading 2-1, DuBois added five insurance runs in the top of the seventh inning after a controversial call seemed to change the momentum, and it went on to win 7-1 in Junior League softball All-Star action Thursday in Punxsutawney.

DuBois' No. 8 hitter, Shelbie Jamison, led off the seventh with a double to the left field fence.

The next hitter, Emily Krise, hit a ground ball in the hole between the shortstop and the third baseman.
