Chucks roll over Keystone on road, 57-23

January 26, 2011

KNOX — The Punxsy boys' basketball team played a complete game on both sides of the ball while wiping away Keystone Wednesday night in Knox, 57-23.

The Chucks (5-9) led 24-10 at the break when their 20-7 third quarter all but clinched their second victory on the road this season.

"That was our best team effort, without a doubt," Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal said. "The guys just really, really stepped up."

Punxsy had struggled to score in recent games. It managed 27 points during a 17-point loss last Friday at Bradford and was defeated by DuBois Central Catholic Monday at home, 56-34.

CLARION — Maybe the lights should go out on the Chucks more often.

After a 38-minute lighting delay that occurred three bouts into its match Tuesday night, the Punxsy wrestling team competed in an inspired way, dismantling Clarion on the road, 58-15.

Nearly all of the Chucks wrestled their best match of the season, as from top to bottom, Tuesday was one of Punxsy's strongest showings this season.

Tuesday's match followed Saturday's 3-2 record at the Lewistown Duals. After that strong showing, Punxsy advanced right into an even better performance Tuesday.

Turnovers doom Lady Chucks in 40-26 loss

January 26, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Too many turnovers can often be the recipe for disaster for most basketball teams, and the Lady Chucks proved that theory to be true Tuesday night during a 40-26 loss at home to Ligonier Valley.

Whether it was the Lady Rams' full-court press — a defense they employed the entire game — or a trapping defense in their own end, Punxsy continually gave the basketball away to the tune of 29 turnovers.

The Lady Chucks kept throwing the ball away, and with each turnover went Punxsy's chances of winning.
