December 17, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Route 36 Rivalry has seen its share of close games in every sport the schools participate in for years, and the latest chapter — Friday's boys' basketball game between the Chucks and the Raiders — was no disappointment, as Punxsy defeated Brookville 45-40 behind 24 points from Daniel Triponey and a three-pointer from Alex Fedigan that put the Chucks up for good with 13 seconds left.
