Raiders convincing in win over A-C Valley

September 24, 2011

FOXBURG — The Brookville Raiders dominated the Allegheny-Clarion Valley Falcons from the first kickoff Friday night and eventually won 50-6.

Brookville's Brodie Zacherl had a 39-yard touchdown on the Raiders' first snap of the game, and from there, the team never let up.

"After last week's rough game, our confidence was a little fragile," Brookville head coach Chris Dworek said. "We had a good week, and we had a good practice (Friday). To have a good start keeps that momentum going from the week, so that was important."

September 24, 2011

MESORACO WATCH

September 24, 2011

PITTSBURGH — Devin Mesoraco's homecoming party was almost spoiled Friday night when Reds' catcher Ramon Hernandez was granted the start.

Several local fans of Mesoraco made the trip to Pittsburgh in hopes of seeing their favorite Major Leaguer in person.

And late in the game, their wish was granted when Mesoraco came in to relieve Hernandez.

Mike Leake had pinch-run for Hernandez in the eighth inning.

Mesoraco's fans didn't get to see him even take a swing at a live pitch.

In fact, he was left standing in the on-deck circle in the ninth inning.
