Punxsy defeats St. Marys, looks forward to rematch with Bradford for D-IX title

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Usually, when a first date goes bad, a second one is out of the question.

But not in this case.

See, the last time that Punxsy and Bradford met during the regular season, the Lady Owls volleyball team didn't just beat Punxsy on its home court, they swept Punxsy 3-0.

After the Lady Chucks defeated the Lady Dutch of St. Marys 3-1 (25-17, 25-22, 22-25, 25-16) on Tuesday night, the Lady Chucks will have a shot at redemption on Thursday, when the team travels to St. Marys face Bradford for the District IX title at 6:30 p.m.
