DUBOIS— Punxsy softball had a two run lead and was three outs away from beating DuBois Saturday, but couldn't hold on and fell 5-4.

Shawnna Crago pitched for the Lady Chucks, struck out five batters and walked four over 6 1/3 innings pitched.

Two of Crago's walks were intentional.

Hannah Neal and Taylor Powell both drove in runs for Punxsy.

The Lady Chucks (8-2) led throughout and had a strong showing at the plate.

In the first inning, Punxsy took a 2-0 lead after Neal scored on a wild pitch and Powell drove in Ashley Barenchik on a sacrifice fly.

After DuBois scored a run in the bottom of the first, Punxsy answered back in the fourth.

Neal singled in Barenchik to extend the Lady Chuks lead to 3-1.

The Lady Beavers cut the lead to 3-2 in the fifth when Lindsey Obremski singled home Brianna Sayers.

Punxsy extended its lead to 4-2 in the sixth after Crago singled to lead off the inning.

Crago advanced to third after an Allie Shields single and scored on an error with two outs.

DuBois took control in the seventh.

After Sayers singled to lead off the inning, Kaitlyn Labub also singled.
Kristina Torretti then reached on an error and Sayers scored on the play, cutting the lead to 4-3.

Labue later scored on an errant pitch, tying the game at four.

With the bases loaded, Morgan Hanna singled in Torretti, giving DuBois a 5-4 win.

The Chucks finished the game with nine hits.

Neal led Punxsy with three hits.

Barenchik, Crago (two), Allie Shields, Kristen Fedder and Megan Muth also had hits.
