Defense is king, Chucks earn first win of season

December 12, 2011

MARION CENTER — The Punxsy boys' basketball team earned its first victory of the young season Saturday in a low-scoring battle against the West Shamokin Wolves in the consolation game of the Marion Center second-annual Cancer Awareness Tip-Off Tournament, 33-25.

Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal said in the preseason, defense was his team's strength, and after falling behind late in a shootout against Marion Center Friday night, the Chucks' defense settled in and contained the Wolves to just 16 points through the first three quarters to pull away and win.

'A tale of two halves': Punxsy girls fall to Central

December 12, 2011

MARION CENTER — The Lady Chucks basketball team concluded its play at the Marion Center second annual Cancer Awareness Tip-Off Tournament in what Punxsy head coach Randy Reitz called a "tale of two halves," falling 55-36 to the Lady Dragons of Central Martinsburg.

After being outscored 32-13 in the first half, Punxsy's offense found its rhythm, and the Lady Chucks outscored Central 14-11 in the third quarter.

Central quickly pushed its lead to 21 with a basket one minute into the third, but Punxsy scored eight unanswered points to cut into the lead.
