Newcome layup pushes Punxsy past DuBois

February 7, 2013

DuBOIS — On night when the action on the court was not very pretty, Punxsy proved to have just enough in the tank over the final two minutes.

With less than eight seconds left, the Lady Chucks’ Taylor Newcome found herself all alone under the basket and received the Jensen Constantino pass for what would be the game-winning layup, 32-30, over the Lady Beavers.

The Newcome bucket made for the final points of the game and completed Punxsy’s 5-0 scoring run in the final 127 seconds of the affair.

ST. MARYS — It is not always how you start, but rather how you finish.

Punxsy was able to rush out to a 24-0 lead behind the heart of its order in the lightweights.

But the tide turned as the heavier wrestlers took their turn for the action. St. Marys scored bonus points in seven straight bouts and won eight straight upperweights in a 43-30 home victory over Punxsy.
