STRATTANVILLE â€” Tonight, two 1-2 teams will face off as the Punxsy Chucks travel to Strattanville to take on the Clarion-Limestone Lions â€” a team that plays a defensive style quite familiar to the Chucks, as it mimics that of the St. Marys Dutchmen, who Punxsy faced last Friday.
"On defense, they play a similar style to St. Marys," Punxsy head coach Alan Nichol said. "So, that's a concern. We'll have to come out and execute the game plan, and it's up to us to make those adjustments.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” In a rare night game at Jack LaMarca Stadium in Punxsutawney, the Punxsy boys' soccer team defeated Redbank Valley 7-0 Thursday evening, breaking Redbank's three-game winning streak over the Chucks.
ALTOONA â€” Punxsy's seventh- and eighth-grade basketball teams were each on the losing end against Altoona-White Thursday afternoon in Altoona.
In the seventh-grade contest, Punxsy was outscored 20-9 in the second half as Altoona went on to win 40-21, but Punxsy was at a disadvantage from the jump.
"We battled extra hard against a much, much taller Altoona team," Punxsy head coach Darrin Kriebel said. "Even though the final score is no indication, the girls put up a valiant effort against a very good team."
