WILCOX â€“ The Wilcox bats couldn't solve Smethport pitcher Dustin Zetwick Sunday afternoon.

WILCOX â€“ With elimination in the cards with a loss, Wilcox picked a good time to put a decisive effort together.

WILCOX â€“ After Wilcox's opening playoff win Wednesday night, Wilcox coach Frank Ferragine said he knew the team needed to be more consistent with hitting and making the most of good opportunities.

WILCOX â€“ Wilcox made sure their huge first inning was good enough for an opening victory in the American Legion playoffs.

JOHNSONBURG â€“ The Elk County Minor League baseball All-Stars continue on in the District 10 Little League tournament after a 16-3 victory over St. Marys in four innings Saturday afternoon at Knothole Area Recreational Park.
When Bruno Iorfido volunteered to help out at a wrestling camp that former Pitt-Johnstown teammates Isaac Greeley and Aaron Rendos were running in Port Allegany in June 2003, the future seemed set for the UPJ star.
A three-time Academic All-American who finished eighth at that year's NCAA Division II championships as a junior, Iorfido would shoot for the top of the podium in his senior year before returning to his hometown of Ridgway, where he'd won four consecutive District 9 titles as an Elker, to teach and coach at his alma mater.
The Bradford American Legion baseball team won 10-1 over Ridgway in action Monday evening at Sandy Beach Recreational Park.
After two scoreless innings, Bradford opened the scoring with a run in the third. Hunter Dixon reached on a one-out bloop single and went to second on a poor pickoff throw by Ridgway. Mike Wilber reached on an infield single to put runners at the corners and John Obermeyer followed up with a sacrifice fly to score Dixon and give Bradford a 1-0 lead.
The St. Marys Little League Softball Senior All-Stars advanced to the finals of the District 10 Senior Tournament with a 12-2, five-inning victory over the Elk County squad Monday night at Benzinger Park.

Two huge innings helped propel the Elk County Senior League All-Stars to a 22-10 victory over Smethport/Mt. Jewett in District 10 softball tournament action Saturday afternoon at the Ridgway Little League fields along Grant Road.

WILCOX â€“ DuBois took advantage of several costly mistakes Saturday afternoon in a 6-3 win over the Elk County All-Stars in the Junior League.
Down 2-0 early in the game, DuBois got three runs with two outs in the home half of the second inning to take the lead.
Jack Mohney worked a two-out walk to put a runner on base, and Buddy Lines followed with a single to left center field to put runners at the corners. A bloop single from Coy Donahue to center field, just past the shortstop's glove, plated Mohney and cut the lead to a run.
