Weaver's clutch free throws lift Punxsy

December 22, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — With the game knotted at 40 and two seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Punxsy's Logan Weaver stepped to the free throw line for a chance to become the hero for the Chucks.

That's exactly what he did.

Weaver knocked down the front end of a one-and-one and drilled the second shot, and the Chucks picked up an exciting 42-40 victory over Harmony Wednesday night in Punxsy.

The Chucks were looking to drive the ball into the paint when they took over possession with seven seconds remaining in the game, and were fouled along the baseline with four seconds on the clock.

Plenty of pins for Chucks in 57-45 win

December 22, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy junior-high wrestling team surrendered four forfeits Monday, but overcame the deficit and earned an impressive 57-45 victory over Altoona at home.

"We were pretty pleased with our performance on the mats. Obviously, to win this one after giving up a total of four forfeits is a big win," Punxsy head coach Bill Burke said. "Not that we still don't have room for improvement in many areas, but we're definitely happy with the final outcome, and we saw a lot of nice things out there. We looked rather aggressive and ready to wrestling."
