Chucks lose to Bisons, still clinch No. 2 seed

February 16, 2011

HYDE — The Punxsy boys' basketball team didn't shoot well and had numerous turnovers during a 50-39 loss to Clearfield Wednesday night, but the Chucks still clinched a home playoff game in the process.

Punxsy (8-13) shot 34 percent from the field and had 16 turnovers, but due to Bradford's 51-36 loss to Elk County Catholic, the Chucks will be the No. 2 seed and the Owls will be the No. 3 seed in the semifinals of the District IX Class AAA playoffs.

Clearfield (5-17) will head to St. Marys (16-7) on the other end of the bracket.

Raiders earn first D-IX League title since '65

BROOKVILLE — Thirty minutes into the boys' basketball game Wednesday night, it looked as if Brookville would have to wait another year to win a District IX League title.

The DuBois boys' basketball team came out and punched the Raiders (19-2, 8-2 District IX League) in the mouth to start the game. The Beavers (9-13, 4-6) played tough defense, shot the lights out and didn't allow Brookville to take the lead for three quarters of the game.

This caused some concern on the Raiders' sideline.
