Chucks down Raiders to reclaim Route 36 trophy

September 1, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy Chucks once again hold the Route 36 title after defeating the Brookville Raiders in a hard fought 26-23 season opener behind a strong rushing effort by Jamie Bush and Christian Falgout.

"It was nice to have (senior quarterback) Garrett Zimmerman and Jamie Bush in there to lead, and I thought Falgout and (Caesar) Maruca did a nice job of blocking from their running back spots," said Punxsy head football coach Alan Nichol.

Punxsy took the first go at offense after Brookville's Cameron Yard kicked off the ball to officially start the Chucks' season.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — A young, but what is expected to be a highly competitive Punxsy girls' cross country team, will toe the starting line for the first time of the 2012 season this morning at the annual Big Valley Invitational.

“I’m excited to get the season started after three solid weeks of practice, and I assume the girls are ready to go as well,” said head coach George Wehrle. “You can find out a lot of things about your fitness at practice, but there’s nothing like a race to really let you know just where you stand.”
