Three down, one to go; tourney concludes tonight

November 10, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Wednesday night, the elementary girls' basketball players put the third night of their tournament in the books, leaving just one more night of competition tonight at Punxsutawney Area High School.

Fans and parents who came out to watch Wednesday's games were treated to a variety of styles from shootouts to low-scoring defensive affairs.

In the first game in the fourth- and fifth-grade division, Kate Horner set the pace for the Celtics with 16 points en route to a 20-4 victory over the Lakers.

Last week, I wrote about the competitive nature of athletes coming together and celebrating the opportunity to play again against an old rival.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the game, but from what I heard, I missed a good, competitive game.

I was also told that the game got a bit chippy at times, but when the final horn rang, the teams came together in the ultimate show of respect: The mid-field handshake.

When it comes to children riding in cars, safety always comes first.
