Chucks look to come home with a win

September 29, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Once a year, the football game is more than a football game: It's Homecoming. Tonight is that night, when in addition to a larger crowd and the crowning of the Homecoming Queen, the Chucks will take on the Karns City Gremlins in a 7 p.m. kickoff.

"It's great excitement," Punxsy head coach Alan Nichol said of the homecoming atmosphere. "It's nice to have a big crowd up there, and we're so fortunate to be supported. There's always a nice crowd, and this just heightens it and makes it more enjoyable for the players."

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Lady Raiders of Brookville travelled to Punxsy to take on the Lady Chucks soccer team Thursday afternoon, and although the muddy conditions from the hard rain earlier in the day equalized the playing field, Brookville came out on top with a 1-0 win.

"I think the field seemed to be a bit of an equalizer for us," Brookville head coach Chip Mason said after the game. "When we walked onto the field, we figured it'd be a game where we had to dump and run, because we just didn't think we could carry the ball very well on it."

BROCKWAY — The Lady Chucks golf team travelled to Brockway Thursday afternoon for a match they knew they would win before they even teed off, as Brockway's team fielded only three girls and was forced to forfeit.

Still, Punxsy head coach Katie Irwin saw lots of promising signs from her players on a course they were unfamiliar with.

"We had a great day," she said. "It was the first time we've ever seen the course at Scottish Heights, and they all played so well. The scores were down where we've wanted to see them all season."
