Pitt-Bradford Volleyball Improves to 22-5

Panthers Sweep Keuka, Earn Win No. 22

KEUKA PARK, N.Y. - The Pitt-Bradford volleyball team closed out the non-conference portion of its schedule Wednesday night, sweeping Keuka 25-19, 28-26, 25-19.

Despite hitting just .198 as a unit, the Panthers prevailed behind a balanced attack and their service play. Eight different Panthers registered a kill, and Pitt-Bradford totaled nine aces while capitalizing on 12 Keuka service errors.

The Panthers jumped ahead 4-0 in the opening set and never looked back, eventually stretching the lead to 10 on Brianna Majot’s only kill of the night.

Pitt-Bradford rallied in the second stanza after trailing 14-6 and never led until 25-24. With the set even at 26 apiece, Rose Thacker and Christina Rauh recorded consecutive kills to complete the comeback.

Tied at 14 in the third set, Pitt-Bradford ripped off six straight points to go ahead for good, fueled by a pair of aces from Finch. Rauh forced match point with her sixth kill of the evening, and Thacker completed the sweep one play later with her team-leading eighth kill.

Kirsten Platz matched Rauh with six kills, and Finch added five. Rauh had a double-double of 21 assists and 12 digs, and Finch had a match-high four aces.

Majot led the defensive effort with 15 digs and Finch had 11. Platz registered three blocks, and Rauh and Thacker had two apiece.

Pitt-Bradford improves to 22-5 on the year and closes out the regular season Saturday at Pitt-Greensburg.​

Regional News Network

Hagan, Tyler
Olean Patrol Officers and Investigators responded to a call on North 24th street this afternoon a few minutes after 1:00 p.m. of two suspicious males at the rear of a residence. 

According to Police Captain Robert Blovsky, the two men ran into the wooded area near 24th street when police arrived and a foot chase ensued. Police from the Village of Allegany and Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Department responded and assisted in looking for the two males. 

Minutes after police started looking for the suspects a call of a hold up alarm went out from the Olean Area Credit Union and a state trooper responded to assist with that call. The bank alarm was determined to be a false alarm.

At 2:07 p.m.,  patrol officers located and arrested 30-year-old Eric Hagen in the wooded area between the end of N. 20th St. and Constitution Avenue without incident.

Approximately $8000 has been raised in local contribution for the Galeton Dam and Lake Feasibility study, the Galeton Development Corporation announced. The non-profit organization is hoping to see more community wide support in this effort to fund a study on the future of Berger Lake and John J Collins Park.

Recently the Commonwealth Finance Authority (CFA) announced a $95,000 grant to the Potter County Development Authority, who had applied for a grant to study the possibilities and solution for the dam at Berger Lake. The feasibility study will evaluate three options for the dam, including repairing the dam and incorporating a fish passage, replacing the dam with rock arch rapids, or removing the dam

The feasibility study is anticipated to cost $115,000 with a 20% requirement for the local match. GDC is hoping to raise the required $20,000 needed from those who enjoy and use the facilities related to the lake and park.

Contributions can be made to: The Galeton Development Corporation, Northwest Savings Bank, 30 West Street, Galeton PA 16922. Please put “Berger Lake” in the memo section of the check. GDC is a 501(c3) corporation and contributions are tax deductible.

Latest Update from Sunoco on Pipeline Spill in Creek - Oct. 25

Tue, 10/25/2016 - 6:40pm  

Melissa Farenish
North Central PA 

Bridge Determined Responsible for Pipe Rupture

A pipeline that released gasoline into Loyalsock Creek in Lycoming County appears to have been damaged by a bridge that washed out and traveled 100 yards down the creek.

Sunoco Logistics is finalizing repair plans in conjunction with local, state and federal agencies, for its section of pipeline passing under Wallis Run at the confluence with Loyalsock Creek in Gamble Township.

“Given the position of the pipe and the location of the bridge before and after the event, it’s clear that the bridge was responsible for the damage to the pipe,” said David R. Chalson, Sunoco Logistics senior vice-president for operations.

The pipeline section under Wallis Run was installed in 1994 at a depth of at least five feet below the stream bed. After excavating and removing the section of damaged pipe Sunday, all evidence indicates that an object of extreme destructive force caused a clean break of the pipe.  Read more...

Pitt-Bradford Tuesday Athletic News

Pitt-Bradford Men Edge D'Youville in Season Finale

BRADFORD, Pa. - The Pitt-Bradford men’s soccer team edged D’Youville 1-0 in its season finale Tuesday.

Christopher Wise scored in the closing moments of the first half for the game’s only tally. Brian Bao, playing in his final game as a Panther, dribbled into the box and found Wise, who only needed one touch to finish for his first goal of the season.

Pitt-Bradford’s defense pitched a shutout behind the stellar play of senior goalkeeper Colin Frownfelter. The Spartans were aggressive, mounting several attacks in the second half, yet Frownfelter and the Panther back line refused to yield the equalizer.

The Spartans’ Hunter Sherman was wide on back-to-back attempts in the final minutes, and Frownfelter turned back Sherman’s third attempt in the closing seconds to preserve the win.

D’Youville doubled up the Panthers in shot attempts, 22-11, and Pitt-Bradford held a 9-6 edge in corner kicks tries.

Frownfelter totaled eight saves, including six stops in the second stanza, and it was the fourth shutout of his career.

Pitt-Bradford finishes the season 2-12-2 under first-year head coach Nathan Whitehurst and narrowly missed the AMCC postseason tournament after being predicted to finish last in the league’s preseason poll.

In addition to Bao and Frownfelter, it was the final career game for Samuel Franchi, Frederic Agou and Selorm Agbemabiese.

“It was great to end the season on a high note,” Whitehurst said. “I’m glad the seniors could finish their career with a win at home.”

Panther Women, D'Youville Play to 1-1 Draw

BRADFORD, Pa. - The Pitt-Bradford women’s soccer team and D’Youville played to a 1-1 draw Tuesday in double-overtime. It was the regular season finale for both teams.

For the Panthers, it was a disappointing result and squandered any chance at possibly sneaking into a first-round bye for the conference postseason tournament.

With the loss and Pitt-Greensburg’s win over Penn State Altoona, the Panthers will host La Roche Saturday in the opening round.

The only goals came on penalty kicks, with the Panthers’ Abby Celesky converting in the 72nd minute and the Spartans’ Terra Juda matching her in the 81st minute.

Pitt-Bradford dominated possession in the opening stanza but failed to capitalize after outshooting the visitors 7-2. The Panthers’ best chance came in the 17th minute yet Courtney Shade lost her footing in front of the net, slipping before having a chance to finish Kaitlyn Donnelly’s centering pass.

In the first overtime period, goalkeeper Sarah Dailey made consecutive saves to prevent D’Youville from scoring the game-winning goal, and Jasmine Adams’ attempt at a golden goal in double-overtime was stopped.

Pitt-Bradford outshot the Spartans 16-14 and held a 4-0 advantage in corner kicks. Dailey recorded eight saves in net.

The Panthers finish the regular season 8-5-3 and will turn their attention to the AMCC postseason tournament.

Baker Welcomes $245,000 for Projects in Tioga and Potter Counties

Feasibility study for Galeton Dam on Berger Lake and rehabilitation of playground in Mansfield Borough slated to receive grant funding

HARRISBURG – State Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) today said two projects in the 68th Legislative District have been selected to receive funding from the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s (CFA) Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program, which is funded by impact fees imposed on the natural gas drilling industry under Act 13 of 2012.

A grant of $95,000 has been awarded to the Potter County Redevelopment Authority for a feasibility study of the Galeton Dam on Berger Lake in Galeton Borough. Berger Lake was created in 1976 by damming Pine Creek. However, sediment has been accumulating behind the dam and reducing the depth of the lake, which is making it unusable for recreation and degrading the fish habitat and water quality. The dam structure requires minor repairs, and recent management plans recommend the inclusion of a fish passage, while the PA Fish and Boat Commission has placed the dam on its list for removal.

Baker said the study which the grant money will help fund will evaluate all three options: repair, creation of a fish passage or complete removal.

“The lake is a community treasure; however, we want to make sure that whatever decision is finally made will ensure the water quality and fish habitat are safe and healthy so we can optimize our enjoyment of the lake,” said Baker. “The degradation of the lake has been a concern for some time now, and I am pleased to have this money being appropriated for a needed study before any future plans are determined.”

A grant of $150,000 has also been awarded to Mansfield Borough in Tioga County to rehabilitate the Graydon Scott South Academy Street Playground.

The funding will be used to rehabilitate the playground by removing the existing play structure and pavilion; purchasing and installing new playground equipment, swings, a new pavilion, safety surfacing and fencing; installing a new ADA parking area and concrete sidewalks; and reconditioning the basketball court. Additional site improvements include new basketball hoops, park benches, trash receptacles, signage, erosion and sediment control, and landscaping.

“This playground is a well-loved destination for many families and youth in the area,” said Baker. “In fact, it has been so well loved over the years that it is sorely in need of rehabilitation. I look forward to seeing the playground, not only restored, but improved, so the community can enjoy it for many more years to come.”

The CFA funding, generated through impact fees paid by drilling companies in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale region, is to be used for statewide initiatives, including abandoned mine drainage abatement; abandoned well plugging; sewage treatment; greenways, trails and recreation; baseline water quality data; watershed restoration; and flood control.

Governor Wolf Statement on Ride Sharing Authorization

October 24, 2016

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Wolf released the following statement on the passage of legislation authorizing ride-sharing in Pennsylvania:

“I am pleased the legislature worked with me to finally pass a long-term solution for ride sharing companies like Uber and Lyft to operate everywhere in Pennsylvania. The commonwealth has proven itself to be a place where these companies can invest and grow, and we must continue to find ways to fuel the development of these and other high-tech companies. We can do this by fostering an economic climate like we have seen in Pittsburgh that has resulted in the surge of tech development.

“It is also encouraging that this legislation puts an end to any question about the operations of these companies in Philadelphia. Equally important is that two-thirds of the revenue derived from ride sharing in the city of Philadelphia will go to the Philadelphia School District to help the district continue to strengthen its financial footing. This funding, on top of the additional $97 million I worked to secure in my first two budgets for the school district, will help provide the resources our children need.

“I applaud the legislature for passing this into law and I look forward to signing the bill.”
