PUNXSUTAWNEY â€”Â Although Punxsy was the host for Wednesday evening's nine- and 10-year-old All-Star game against St. Marys, the coin toss before the game determined that St. Marys would be the home team, and thus get last at-bats. But Punxsy used the momentum that came with a big first inning to go on to earn a 6-3 victory over St. Marys in a game the host never trailed.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Alli Ishman threw her second no-hitter of the 11- and 12-year-old softball All-Star tournament to out-duel fellow pitcher Maddie Loutzenheiser â€” who didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning â€”Â in Punxsy's 2-0 win over Warren in the District X losers' bracket final Wednesday in Punxsutawney.
With the win, Punxsy set up a rematch with DuBois, which knocked Punxsy into the losers' bracket Monday with a walk-off, 3-2 victory. Punxsy hopes to avenge the loss to DuBois Friday, when it travels there for the second time this week, and set up a rubber match for the District X crown.
BROOKVILLE â€” Punxsy's power proved to be too much for the Brookville All-Star squad to handle Wednesday night in Brookville, as Punxsy defeated Brookville 26-9 after five innings.
Punxsy batted first and came out hot right from the get-go. In the first inning, Madison Stonbraker had an RBI-triple to center field to score the first run of the game.
Jessica Lisa followed with an RBI of her own to bring Stonbraker home. The next five batters â€” Laney Monroe, Tagen Ludwig, Haley Maines, Abby Gemmell and Abbi Riskus â€” were all walked to bring in another four runs.
