Three-run seventh powers Chucks over Beavers

April 17, 2013

DUBOIS — A close game can change in a hurry.

Trailing 1-0 since the first inning, the Punxsy baseball offense produced five hits and saw three of the runners score to power past host DuBois, 3-1, on Wednesday in DuBois.

Garrett Zimmerman led off the visiting seventh with a single to center and moved to third two batters later when Cory Geer singled. The Chucks tied the contest, 1-1, when Dakota Thomas reached on a fielder's choice to plate Garrett Zimmerman.

Punxsy was not finished there.

Defense and timely hitting enable Punxsy to shutout DuBois softball

April 17, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Defense should never have an off day, and it was on display on the varsity softball diamond on Wednesday afternoon.
Behind a pair of double plays and various other top glove showings, Punxsy received three timely fifth- inning hits to score the lone run and shutout rival DuBois, 1-0, in Punxsutawney.

“It was a great game, as the players made the plays. A tremendous game to watch, as both sides played very well defensively,” noted Lady Chucks head coach Alan Pifer. “They didn’t beat themselves but we got the break (to score the one run).”
