DuBois comes from behind late to down Punxsy LLSB All-Stars

June 25, 2012

DUBOIS — With a three-day rest and the tournament's king seed on the line, Punxsy and DuBois' 11- and 12-year-old softball All-Stars faced off in the winners' bracket championship game Monday evening in DuBois.

And behind a two-run sixth inning, DuBois earned a come-from-behind win to advance to the District X final Friday.

After the game, Punxsy head coach Mike Ishman attributed the loss to a couple simple concepts: DuBois got the hits when it needed them, and Punxsy made a few too many mistakes and didn't get the hits when it needed them most.

Miners ride Kachmar's arm to win in Cancer Awareness Tourney opener

June 25, 2012

ROSSITER — With a 2 p.m. contest against the Bigler Buccos Saturday, the Rossiter Miners opened their third-annual Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament with a bang — picking up a 9-1 victory behind a complete-game three-hitter by Dylan Kachmar and some lively hitting up and down the lineup.

Kachmar took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, and over the final 5.2 innings, he was nearly unhittable, as he faced the minimum number of opposing hitters before Andy Turner picked up Bigler's third hit one out before the end of the game.

Punxsy youngsters fall to Brookville in All-Star Tournament Opening Game

June 25, 2012

BROOKVILLE— Brookville's big fourth inning was too much for the Punxsy Minors All-Star team to overcome Saturday at Zufall Field.

The Punxsy squad fell 10-5 to Brookville.

Despite the final outcome, Punxsy led during the first three innings.

Brookville batted to open the game. Seth Dunkle stepped up to the plate first.

He hit a shot to lefty pitcher Darren Byers, who threw to first baseman Zack Reitz, but the throw was mishandled, allowing Dunkle to reach second on the first error of the game.

Kyle Macbeth batted next, and flew out to right field for the first out.
