Karns City rains on Punxsy's parade

October 1, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — On a cold and drizzly Homecoming evening Friday at Jack LaMarca Stadium in Punxsutawney, the Gremlins of Karns City edged out the Chucks 21-20 to put a damper on the celebration.

Despite the loss, though, Punxsy head coach Alan Nichol said he was very pleased with his team's 48-minute effort.

"You can't ask for more from a group of young men then to go out and play 48 minutes, and they sure did that, because we were right where we wanted to be," he said. "At the end, we had an opportunity to win the game against a very good football team."

KNOX — Amid chilly and dreary conditions Thursday evening, the Punxsy Chucks soccer team travelled to Knox to take on the Keystone Panthers, and the Chucks came out on top in the contest, 8-0.

Punxsy wasted absolutely no time jumping out to an early lead by scoring just 11 seconds into the game when Tanner Evans scored a goal assisted by Trevor Peace.

After that, there was a 27-minute scoring lull before Peace put Punxsy ahead by two with a goal of his own.
