Chucks hold on to defeat Owls in home opener, 5-3

March 28, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — It wasn't pretty, but first-year manager Mike Dickey will take the Punxsy baseball team's 5-3 victory over Bradford in the season-opener Monday at Rich Kuntz Memorial Field in Punxsutawney.

"We don't give back wins," Dickey said. "There are no style points."

The Chucks led 4-0 through three innings before Punxsy's miscues on the base paths and errors in the field allowed the Owls to make things interesting.

Bradford had the tying run on first base during the final inning, but Punxsy relief pitcher Dane Baker induced a fly out to left field that ended the Owls' threat.

Unforced errors cost Chucks season-opener

March 28, 2011

DUBOIS — Punxsy boys' tennis coach Todd Heigley feels that his team was only a few unforced errors away from beating DuBois Central Catholic in their opener Monday afternoon.

The Chucks lost late leads and a match in a tiebreaker, which may have given them a chance at victory.

But Punxsy (0-1) couldn't pick up enough wins and fell 6-3 at DuBois Central Catholic (1-0).
