From start to finish, Punxsy earns a 'W'

September 27, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Already leading 3-0 at halftime, Punxsy scored three goals within 1:40 early in the second half to put the game away, and Punxsy cruised to an 8-0 win over Curwensville Tuesday in Punxsutawney.

It was a full squad effort for the Chucks, with the lineup looking a bit different in the first half than Punxsy is used to, giving the midfielders a chance to play defense and the fullbacks a chance to run the offense.
