Punxsy breaks out the bats early, holds on to beat DuBois, 11-10

June 28, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The John J. Fisher Post 62 Punxsy American Legion team scored 10 of its 11 runs in the first two innings and held off a late rally by DuBois to win, 11-10, Tuesday at Rich Kuntz Memorial Field in Punxsutawney.

Punxsy's offensive outburst was just what manager Mike Dickey wanted to see from his team with the playoffs just around the corner.

"Hitting from top to bottom, that was refreshing to see," Dickey said. "Of course, we know they're not throwing the guys they will in the playoffs, but regardless, it gives us some confidence."

"It was a real good way to start (the tournament at home)," Brookville manager Jeff Caylor said. "It was a good win; the kids hit the ball really well."

Brookville's next game will be at 6 p.m. Friday at DuBois, which took down St. Marys 10-0 in four innings Tuesday.
