Punxsutawney Wins League Opener
Clearfield and Punsutawney kicked off their seasons on Sunday afternoon with their Jefferson County League opener. Braedon Pennington paced the home team on the mound, pitching all seven innings for the win. He surrendered just four hits and three earned runs while striking out fourteen in what will surely be one of the top strikeout performances the state will see this year.
Andrew Redden had the big hit for the visiting Chiefs, hitting a fourth inning home run. Punxsutawney moves to 1-0 on the young season, with Clearfield now sitting at 0-1. Both teams will return to action later this week.
