PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Defense helped the Punxsy ninth-grade boys' basketball team top DuBois last Friday, 33-30.
Punxsy (13-4) allowed just 12 points by halftime, taking a 16-12 lead at the break before holding on for the five-point win.
"DuBois really came out and was ready to go. They played us hard the whole game," Punxsy coach Brandon Krug said. "Our offense has been struggling lately, but taking pride in our defense has given us the chance to win the past few games."
Brandon Mancuso scored a team-best 11 points, and Mike Klingensmith added eight points.
