PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” It wasn't officially Senior Night in Punxsutawney Friday night, but entering the game, the Chucks knew it was their seniors' final game, and they honored their eight seniors by grinding their way to a 35-6 victory over the West Shamokin Wolves.
NEW BETHLEHEM â€”Â Two quick second-quarter touchdowns for Redbank Valley were difficult for the Brookville Raiders to combat Friday night, and they fell 20-7 in the final week of the regular season.
"It was extremely disappointing," Raiders head coach Chris Dworek said. "All the positive things we did the last few weeks, and to end Week 10 like this is just disappointing."
