PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Whether it was shooting beyond the arc, rebounding the ball offensively or defending the Punxsy girls' basketball team, Altoona had the Lady Chucks' number Monday night in Punxsutawney.
Kayla DeCriscio nailed five three-pointers and led all scorers with 19 points during the Lady Lions' 73-31 victory.
Punxsy, which trailed 40-13 at halftime, slumped to 0-3 on the season.
The Lady Chucks were held to single digits during every quarter, including five in the first frame. Altoona was ahead 22-5 entering the second quarter.
INDIANA â€” Indiana won seven of the 12 bouts on the mat and had just enough at the end to surpass the Punxsy junior-high wrestling team last Friday, 47-39.
The Chucks (0-1) were boosted by four-straight wins by fall from 110 to 130 pounds, but Punxsy struggled to win just one match after that once the weight classes grew larger.
Ahead 39-29 with three bouts remaining, Punxsy bumped up Austin Covatch and Troy Peace, giving Indiana a forfeit at 185 pounds. Covatch and Peace, however, each lost by fall, ultimately pushing Indiana ahead for the eight-point win.
