The Panthers stormed back in the opener after falling behind 7-2 only to lose in extra innings. Pitt-Bradford jumped ahead 2-0 in the second behind Brody Wood’s two-run double to left field.
Starter Ryan Boyer retired the first seven Wildcat hitters he faced, but a one-out single in the third opened the floodgates for Penn College. The Wildcats would score seven runs on five hits, aided by a pair of errors, to chase Boyer from the game.
Andrew Bacha came on to retire the final two batters of the frame and would hold Penn College scoreless over the next 4.2 innings, allowing the Panthers to mount a charge.
Tim Brown doubled with two outs in the third, scoring a pair of runs, and Austin Parent’s RBI single up the middle capped a two-run fourth, trimming the deficit to 7-6. In the fifth, Jay Clinger doubled with one out, and he tied the game on Brown’s base hit.
Both teams squandered chances in the final two innings, pushing the contest to extras. In the top half of the eighth, Clinger chased down the go-ahead run in between third base and home after fielding a groundball at shortstop, yet the Wildcats singled in the winning run from second base in the next at bat.
Pitt-Bradford advanced a runner to third with two outs in the bottom half of the frame, but Brock Blovsky grounded out to end the threat.
Brown had three of the Panthers’ nine hits, and Clinger scored twice. Benjamin Hayes was charged with the loss, allowing one run on two hits in a single inning of work. Bacha was sharp in his relief appearance, surrendering only two hits while striking out four and walking one.
Pitt-Bradford also squandered an early lead in game two, as Penn College erupted for four runs in the fourth inning to win 6-3.
A pair of errors in the second inning led to two Panther runs, and Brown’s run-scoring bloop single added a third. The Wildcats got a run back in the third, and a trio of doubles in the fourth led to a four-run explosion. Penn College added a run in the sixth, and the game was called before the start of the seventh inning due to darkness.
Pitt-Bradford mustered just three hits and stranded 10 runners on base, including leaving the bases loaded in the final inning. Matthew Hogue took the loss, allowing five runs on eight hits in 3.2 innings.
Pitt-Bradford drops to 4-12 on the season and will travel to Medaille Wednesday for the start of conference play.

A benefit for Donald Gifford set for 1 p.m. Saturday at The Shack at Corydon, 3307 W. Washington St.
By SANDY RHODES
When Dave Feely found out Don Gifford was seriously injured, he knew what had to be done.
"We will have a benefit," he said. "And the sooner the better."
Earlier this month, Gifford, a Bradford Township employee and Willow Creek resident, was working on the garbage truck and was pinned between the truck and another vehicle.
He had surgery in Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo, N.Y., and is now in a rehabilitation facility.
Within days, Feely's words became a reality.
A benefit is set for 1 p.m. Saturday at The Shack at Corydon, 3307 W. Washington St.
The Shack is serving beef on wecks plus rigatoni and meatballs. Several people have signed up to bring in food that will be used to supplement the meal. There will be a cash bar.
The cost is $10 per person.
There will also be a 50/50 raffle and a Chinese auction.
Entertainment includes the Inexpensive Winos, DJ Brandon Hallock and Greg Pire.
Feely wanted to help Gifford, who lives next to The Shack, because he has known him for years.
"In all honesty, he is one of the nicest, most sincere person I have met in my life," Feely said of Gifford. "Always respectful and friendly."
"I have always walked away from him feeling a little better. It's true."
And many people have offered to help with the benefit.
"A lot of people have stepped forward ," Feely said. "That's standard in Bradford. That is what we do in this town ... someone is in need and boom - people come running."
Gifford has a wife, Lisa, and three stepchildren.
"They are very grateful for any help. Very grateful," Feely said.
A portion of The Shack's proceeds will also be donated to the Giffords.
Feely is hopeful for a good turnout.
"It is hard to hear about something like this. Bad things happen to good people."

The student editors of Baily’s Beads, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s award-winning literary magazine, are seeking contest entries, submissions for special sections of music and performance poetry, and general submissions for their 2018 issue.
For the contest, participants are invited to write a piece that includes all of these seven words: lurched, chortle, attic, incite, icepack, beeswax, and orifice. Winners will be published in the 2018 edition and receive a cash prize. The deadline for entering is April 1.

It accepts poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction, including memoirs, essays, commentaries, interviews and travel and nature writing.

To help the staff judge work on its merits, do not place a name on the work itself. Prose should be double spaced, and poetry should be single-spaced. Authors may submit up to 20 pages of writing.
The staff is also seeking art – photography, paintings, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, and digital art.
Submitted images should be high-resolution jpeg files to ensure a high-quality print.
Writers and artists do not need to be Pitt-Bradford students to make a submission. Each author/artist is asked to submit no more than 10 pieces. All submissions should be sent to email@example.com. The magazine accepts submissions year-round, but to ensure consideration for the next issue, please submit by April 10.

Following the noon concert, Holtland and Candillari will join Pitt-Bradford faculty members Dr. Nancy McCabe, professor of writing, and Dr. Joshua Groffman, assistant professor of music, to discuss issues of gender diversity in the arts.

Candillari is a composer, pianist, conductor, TED Fellow and Fulbright Scholar.
Holtland’s chapbook “Inner River” was recently published by Drop Leaf Press.
During their residency at Pitt-Bradford, Candillari and Holtland will meet with student composers, musicians, and writers, who will have a chance to talk with and learn from these emerging artists who are increasingly prominent in their fields.
Following the residency, Candillari and Holtland will collaborate to write text and music for a new vocal work that will be premiered by acclaimed soprano Lucy Dhegrae at Pitt-Bradford in Fall 2017.
This presentation is sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh Year of Diversity and the Pitt-Bradford Women’s History Month Committee.

Route 155 Project to Re-start Monday in Potter County
Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will re-start a Route 155 project in Potter County on Monday, March 27. This year’s work zone will stretch from the Potter County line near Sizerville State Park north to the McKean County line.
This section of Route 155 carries an average of 2,000 vehicles each day. Project work will result in a smoother road surface and enhance roadway travel on Route 155 for years to come.
Work in 2017 will begin at the north end of the construction zone and will feature drainage upgrades and guide rail removal.
The drainage work will require an alternating traffic pattern during daylight hours. The alternating pattern will be controlled by temporary, pedestal-type traffic signals that will be active for about 10 hours each day. Roadway flagger may also be used, depending on work activity.
Overall project work will include roadway base repair and paving. Project completion is expected in mid-summer/August, with all work weather dependent. IA Construction Corporation of Franklin, PA is the contractor on this $5.5 million job.
PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution in and around all work zones, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 770 traffic cameras.
511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
