DuBOIS â On a rainy Halloween night, Bradford's Cody Bly turned out to be no treat for the Punxsy boys' soccer team. Bly found the net three times to boot the Owls past the Chucks to claim the District IX title, 3-1.
"We were outplayed. Bradford was the better team tonight," explained Chucks head coach Phil Shenkle. "We did a lot of things very well, but Bradford was just better in the game."
The night started off rough for Punxsy, especially for its goalkeeper Tristan Acre. The junior not only hurt his knee in the pregame warmups but was forced to leave the game three minutes in.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â It would be fair to say that My Fair Lady in downtown Punxsutawney has had a fairly good run over the past five years.
"Today is our fifth anniversary, and it has been a very interesting five years of growth," said Bev Fairman, owner of My Fair Lady.
"We tried to keep the store to the period by retaining the original tin ceiling, which was covered by the suspended ceiling and actually helped to preserve it," Fairman said, adding that over the years, it could've been damaged if it had been exposed.
She described My Fair Lady as a gallery and gift store.
