PUNXSUTAWNEY –  Offensive struggles continue to plague the Curwensville Area High School baseball team as Punxsutawney bumped off the visiting Golden Tide, 4-1, on Thursday afternoon.

Tide head coach Denny Johns said afterwards, “We have got to find ways to get more hits and start to score runs.  I told the team after the game that we are a deceiving 0-4 squad at this point.”

Senior shortstop Tanner Elensky had three of the five hits for Curwensville.  Two of Elensky’s hits were doubles and he also scored the only run for Curwensville in the top of the fourth inning.

John Matthews, shortstop for the Chucks, also had three hits on the afternoon while Christian Falgout stroked a double for Punxsutawney.

The Golden Tide return to action on Monday afternoon when they host Moshannon Valley at 4:15 pm.
