First-half lull stops Punxsy's upset chances

January 11, 2011

ST. MARYS — As has been an issue for the Punxsy boys' basketball team for a few years now, a quarter-long scoring drought cost the team an opportunity at keeping up with Elk County Catholic Tuesday night during a 52-33 loss on the road.

Punxsy (3-6, 0-3 District IX League) was ahead 9-2 midway through the first quarter, but then, it couldn't find the bottom of the net.

Twelve minutes and five points scored later, the Chucks were behind 21-14 at halftime before being outpaced 31-19 during the second half of their fourth-straight defeat.

ALTOONA — The Punxsy ninth-grade girls' basketball team fell to 0-2 on the season against Altoona Monday night, falling by the score of 40-16 on the road.

The Lady Chucks (7-2) are 7-0 against non-Altoona teams, as they started the season with a loss to the Lady Mountain Lions before winning seven-straight games. Monday, Punxsy trailed 13-9 in the second quarter before a 25-4 run in Altoona's favor put a Punxsy comeback out of reach.

The Lady Chucks were outscored 13-4 to close the first half before Altoona used a 12-0 third quarter to lead 38-13 entering the fourth.
