PUNXSUTAWNEY â In what could be described as a see saw battle all night between two of the areaâs best, Punxsy was able to record the last strike on a Trevor Peace boot 1:42 into overtime for the 5-4 boysâ soccer win over Brockway.
âIt was great game of hustle, effort and guts,â said Chucks coach Phil Shenkle right afterwards. âThis was a game of playoff training, as you have to have these types of games going into the playoffs.â
Peace produced a âhat trickâ trick to highlight the Chucks (9-3) offense. Tanner Evans added a goal and assisted on Kevin Hughesâ header off a corner kick.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â In a breakout effort, Lady Chucks' midfielder Emily Horner connected for a 'hat trick' and an assist to help send the hometown seniors away winners, 4-3, over the Lady Rovers of Brockway on Tuesday night in Punxsutawney.
"This was Emily Horner's breakout game," explained Punxsy coach Kevin Hughes. "The movement and effort she had was great. She worked hard for every single one of those goals."
And Punxsy would need every single one of those goals to defeat Brockway.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â If you haven't been bowling in Punxsy for a while, you might want to take a trip down to Groundhog Lanes on Pine Street in Punxsutawney, where owner Tim Lowmaster has just completed a major renovation with brand-new state-of-the-art Brunswick pinsetters.
"I've just begun my 13th year of owning Groundhog Lanes; I purchased it in July, 2000," said Lowmaster.
Lowmaster said early on, he had to upgrade the facility, starting with the furnaces that were located on the main concourse and were not very energy efficient.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â The news that all the little ghosts and goblins have been waiting to hear is when Halloween will be observed in Punxsutawney.
Mike Porada, chairman of the Public Safety Committee, said the borough received a letter submitted by the Punxsutawney Fire Department (which has organized the Halloween Parade for many years) proposing that the parade be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31, on Union Street.
Back in June, the Molinari family of Walston generously adopted one of many dogs that had been abandoned and discovered near Stump Creek.
Lauren Molinari, pictured with her dog Annie, took a special liking to her family's new pet, saying, "I like my dog Annie because she is so good. She is a mama's girl. She loves to run around with our other dogs."
Annie seems to be recovering nicely from the incident.
