FOXBURG â€” The Brookville Raiders dominated the Allegheny-Clarion Valley Falcons from the first kickoff Friday night and eventually won 50-6.
Brookville's Brodie Zacherl had a 39-yard touchdown on the Raiders' first snap of the game, and from there, the team never let up.
"After last week's rough game, our confidence was a little fragile," Brookville head coach Chris Dworek said. "We had a good week, and we had a good practice (Friday). To have a good start keeps that momentum going from the week, so that was important."
STRATTANVILLE â€” The Punxsy Chucks scored on their first four offensive possessions in the first half â€” including three second-quarter touchdowns â€” to take a 28-0 lead to halftime and went on to easily defeat Clarion-Limestone 28-0 Friday night in Strattanville.
PITTSBURGH â€” Devin Mesoraco's homecoming party was almost spoiled Friday night when Reds' catcher Ramon Hernandez was granted the start.
Several local fans of Mesoraco made the trip to Pittsburgh in hopes of seeing their favorite Major Leaguer in person.
And late in the game, their wish was granted when Mesoraco came in to relieve Hernandez.
Mike Leake had pinch-run for Hernandez in the eighth inning.
Mesoraco's fans didn't get to see him even take a swing at a live pitch.
In fact, he was left standing in the on-deck circle in the ninth inning.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Thursday, members of the Punxsutawney Area Chamber of Commerce held a mixer at the Grace Place Community Resource Center, formerly the Grube Hospital.
The Rev. Tim Spence, interim executive director for the Jefferson Area Lutheran Social Ministry Inc. (JALSM), said construction on Grace Place Apartments is 60 percent complete with occupancy scheduled for Jan. 1.
He said the apartment building is being constructed in two sections. In the first section, the sheet rock is nearing completion, while in the second section, the stud work is almost finished.
