Chucks hit OT winner to down Rovers boys’ soccer

October 2, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — In what could be described as a see saw battle all night between two of the area’s best, Punxsy was able to record the last strike on a Trevor Peace boot 1:42 into overtime for the 5-4 boys’ soccer win over Brockway.

“It was great game of hustle, effort and guts,” said Chucks coach Phil Shenkle right afterwards. “This was a game of playoff training, as you have to have these types of games going into the playoffs.”

Peace produced a ‘hat trick’ trick to highlight the Chucks (9-3) offense. Tanner Evans added a goal and assisted on Kevin Hughes’ header off a corner kick.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — If you haven't been bowling in Punxsy for a while, you might want to take a trip down to Groundhog Lanes on Pine Street in Punxsutawney, where owner Tim Lowmaster has just completed a major renovation with brand-new state-of-the-art Brunswick pinsetters.

"I've just begun my 13th year of owning Groundhog Lanes; I purchased it in July, 2000," said Lowmaster.

Lowmaster said early on, he had to upgrade the facility, starting with the furnaces that were located on the main concourse and were not very energy efficient.

Back in June, the Molinari family of Walston generously adopted one of many dogs that had been abandoned and discovered near Stump Creek.

Lauren Molinari, pictured with her dog Annie, took a special liking to her family's new pet, saying, "I like my dog Annie because she is so good. She is a mama's girl. She loves to run around with our other dogs."

Annie seems to be recovering nicely from the incident.
