January 29, 2011

DUBOIS — The Punxsy boys' basketball team won its first District IX League game in 20 tries by defeating DuBois Friday night, 65-49.

The Chucks (6-9, 1-5) snapped a 19-game league losing streak with the victory. Punxsy's last league win came Feb. 7, 2009, when it beat Brookville, 54-44.

Not only was the win big in league terms, but it was the Chucks' largest win over the Beavers in DuBois in more than a decade.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The 2010-2011 Punxsy girls' basketball team may lose more times than it wins this season, but the Lady Chucks never give up.

DuBois (10-4, 3-2) made its free throws down the stretch, and Punxsy couldn't keep up during the Lady Beavers' 50-45 victory.
