Game-winning three at buzzer stuns Chucks

December 30, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Marion Center sophomore Brodey Thompson may not have been included on the Carl A. Truance Holiday Classic All-Tournament team, but his three-pointer at the buzzer lifted the Stingers past the Punxsy boys' basketball team Thursday night in front of a near-capacity crowd in Punxsutawney.

The Chucks (3-3) were ahead 49-48 with 9.3 seconds left before Daniel Triponey missed the front end of a one-and-one. As Marion Center's sharp shooting Alex Woodrow, the tournament MVP, raced down court, he was met by one of Punxsy's tallest players — Luke Janocha.

The Lady Chucks (2-6) trailed 28-20 after three quarters, but Hazleton was able to pull away with a 15-5 final quarter to earn a 43-25 victory in the tournament's consolation game.
