PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The Punxsy boys' basketball team found a way to finish Monday night.
Behind a defense that wouldn't quit and an offense that was able to penetrate Clearfield's zone defense late in the game, the Chucks (7-9) won their third-straight contest by beating the Bisons, 49-32.
Two former District IX League foes played as if they were still league rivals, as high intensity play ensued. Clearfield (4-12) may compete against mostly District VI opponents now, but the two squads played with an enthusiasm of a playoff game.
BROOKVILLEâ€” Brookville girls' basketball head coach Mark Powell knew how important the Lady Raiders' game was Monday night at home against Keystone.
Brookville had lost its last four games and had its hands full with defending Keystone's preseason All-District IX player Morgan Johnson. Also, Brookville lost to Keystone 45-42 the first time these teams met Dec. 11 in the championship game of the Brookville Tip-off Tournament.
Johnson scored 19, but Brookville (11-5) kept Keystone (12-4) from rebounding well en route to a 59-54 win.
