Glendale topples Moshannon Valley in extras
Wednesday, April 23, 2014
By Jon Christoff Sports Writer
AMESVILLE - All teams go through some ups and downs throughout the course of the season, and Glendale softball coach Phil Barroner is hopeful his team's 9-5, 8-inning win over Moshannon Valley on Tuesday in Amesville will help get it out of its current rut.
The Lady Vikings entered the contest having lost four of their last five contests, but some timely hitting and the ability of pitcher Kyla Holtz to work out of jams allowed Barroner's team to hold off a pair of Damsels rallies - including one where the hosts tied the game with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. more...

Unfortunately for Clearfield, the Bearcats took a big lead, then gave it away before snatching it back in the seventh inning to take home the 10-8 victory.
"This is a mirror image of how our entire season has gone," said Bison head coach Sid Lansberry. "I said yesterday this is a microcosm of our season. We get behind, then we battle back. Then we shoot ourselves in the foot." more...
