Big fifth powers Lady Chucks to season series sweep of Lady Lions

May 6, 2013

ALTOONA — It is always nice to sweep a school more than twice your size.

A big five-run fifth inning powered Punxsy over host Altoona, 7-2, to sweep the season series.

The Lady Chucks won the contest on their home field, 10-5, on April 11.

"We started out slow. We hit the ball, just didn't find holes or string any hits together until the fifth," explained Punxsy head coach Alan Pifer. "Ashley Bacha did a good job keeping us in the game until then."

Painter's two-run single pushes Punxsy past St. Marys in softball Round 2

May 2, 2013

ST. MARYS — When given an opportunity, it is important to grab it with both hands and take advantage.

Punxsy sophomore Shaina Painter took hold of her opportunity in a big way Thursday afternoon.

Leading 1-0 in the top of the sixth, Painter laced a pinch hit two-run single to triple the Lady Chucks lead to 3-0.

Punxsy would need each of those two tallies driven in by Painter as host St. Marys plated two runs in the sixth. The Lady Chucks' pitcher Ashley Bacha would give nothing more to the Lady Dutch to take Round 2 of the District IX foes, 3-2.
