Lady Chucks' comeback comes up just short

April 21, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — In a game that saw a number of zeroes on the scoreboard — 12 to be exact — it was a pair of big half innings that told the offensive story in Punxsy's varsity softball game against State College Friday in Punxsutawney.

Unfortunately for the Lady Chucks, their big inning came up just short of matching State College's, and they fell 4-3 to the Little Lions.

One of the things that stood out about State College's big inning — the third, during which it scored four runs — was that while the Little Lions had three hits, Punxsy also helped them with a pair of fielding errors.
