DUBOIS â€” 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.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” 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.
â€śIt was a great game, as the players made the plays. A tremendous game to watch, as both sides played very well defensively,â€ť noted Lady Chucks head coach Alan Pifer. â€śThey didnâ€™t beat themselves but we got the break (to score the one run).â€ť
