DUBOIS — DuBois pitcher Rachel Henry threw a complete game shutout, allowing only three hits and striking out eight, to defeat Punxsy 5-0 in the District 10 championship in the Junior League Softball division Wednesday night in DuBois.

Henry allowed two of the three hits in the first two innings and seemed to throw better as the game went on, allowing only one more hit on a come-backer that she just could not handle in the seventh.
