ROSSITER â€”Â The Rossiter Miners scored two runs in the fifth inning that put them just over the edge of the previously undefeated Brookville Grays Thursday night in Rossiter.
"Anytime you beat a team like Brookville, you can be happy," Miners manager Jim Dunlap said. "That makes me feel great. ... (The rivalry) means a lot."
The Miners were leading 2-1 heading into the fifth inning, but they were put over the edge by a triple to deep center by Braedon Pennington that plated Pete Meterko.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€”Â When a team consists of many younger players, it will often go through some growing pains. The hope is that one day the experience level will pay off and be a benefit to the players down the road.
After picking up its first win of the season, Fezell Enterprises Youth Legion team â€” which consists mostly of players on the younger end of the age spectrum for Youth Legion â€” fell to 1-4 on the season with a tough 22-8 loss to Walbeck in the Indiana County League.
BROOKVILLE â€” During Tuesdayâ€™s Jefferson County Jail Board meeting, Judge John H. Foradora complimented the Jefferson County jail Warden Tom Elbel and the jail staff on several prosecutions that recently went to trial.
â€śThey did a fine job with testimony, and the video system and phone system has all worked to a T to bring offenders to justice,â€ť Foradora said. â€śAnd hopefully, that will make the jail a more secure place.â€ť
Recent cases involved inmates smuggling drugs into the jail internally, and the jailâ€™s video equipment was a benefit to the prosecution.
