PUNXSUTAWNEY — On a beautiful Homecoming night at Jack F. LaMarca Stadium, the Punxsy Chucks’ defense shined and the ground game churned out 386 yards to stride past the Allegheny-Clarion Valley Falcons, 24-6.

After a rocky showing a week ago, the Punxsy defense flexed its muscles against what was a potent Falcons’ offense coming into the contest. For the first 46:42, Punxsy held A-C Valley to 150 yards of total offense including 52 on the ground.
