Chucks notch another win, blank St. Marys

September 25, 2011

ST. MARYS — The Punxsutawney Chucks boys' soccer squad shutdown the St. Marys offense and posed a 2-0 shutout to improve the season record to 7-1.

Despite the win, Punxsy head coach Phil Shenkle still said there were some things he was not satisfied with.

"We didn't play at as high of a tempo as I would've liked," Shenkle said.

St. Marys has a short, compact field, and Shenkle said his team had a hard time adjusting to that situation.

Punxsutawney's own Devin Mesoraco had a weekend full of baseball for the Cincinnati Reds Saturday and Sunday, playing in both victories against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Mesoraco struggled in Saturday's game, going 0-for-4 at bat and getting struck out once by Pittsburgh's Jose Veras. He had two flies out and a groundout to third base.

Sunday, Mesoraco had a more successful game as he reached base twice. His game was complete with one hit and two runs.

Brookville youngster turning heads at the track

September 25, 2011

BROOKVILLE — Most 12-year-olds dream about the day they turn 16, so they can get behind the wheel of a car for the first time, but one local boy has a head start on his peers.

Will Fleming, a sixth- grader at Hickory Grove in the Brookville Area School District, just completed his first season racing a 270 cubic centimeter powered micro sprint race car, showing many signs of improvement and success in his rookie year.

The 270cc micros — a smaller version of the 410cc sprints — are powered by what is basically a motorcycle engine and run on alcohol as a fuel source.
