Chucks build huge lead before edging Bisons

December 26, 2010

CLEARFIELD — The Punxsy junior-high wrestling team wasn't happy with the way its match against Clearfield ended, but the Chucks still picked up a huge victory over a squad it has lost to many times.

Behind five wins by fall, Punxsy built a 46-3 advantage, only to squeeze out a 52-44 victory last Wednesday in Clearfield.

"It was great to beat Clearfield finally," Punxsy head coach Bill Burke said. "We're certainly happy about that win, but I was a little disappointed with our finish."

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy eighth-grade boys' basketball team allowed a combined seven points during the first and fourth quarters while upsetting Altoona White last Wednesday at home, 31-25.

The Chucks (3-1) were ahead 20-13 at halftime before Altoona trimmed the lead to 24-22 entering the final frame. That's when the Chucks pulled away during a 7-3 final frame.

"This was a good team effort defensively," Punxsy head coach Glenn Good said. "There is room for improvement, but overall, it was a good defensive effort. We also rebounded well on both ends of the court."
