Lady Chucks serve their way to sweep

September 8, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Behind strong serving — with a total of 19 aces over three games — the Lady Chucks volleyball team swept Brockway, 3-0, to earn its first regular season win.

Punxsy's Janie Depp-Hutchinson led the team with seven aces, including five in the first game, and Sydney Weaver added six aces for Punxsy.

"I think one of our strengths as a team is serving," head coach Lisa Kephart said. "We have a lot of great servers throughout the rotation. They do well, and when they serve it hard and get it in, they're usually hard to defend."

CURWENSVILLE — The Punxsy boys' soccer team poured on early and often in Curwensville, scoring seven goals in the first half alone, and went on to win by a final score of 9-0 Thursday afternoon.

Tyler Pressloid put Punxsy on the board at 8:52 of the first half on a goal assisted by Tanner Evans — a goal that would prove to be the game-winner.

Just five minutes later, Evans scored a goal of his own, this time an unassisted.

Evans struck again for Punxsy at the 25-minute mark, assisted by Brycen Lunger.

St. Marys squeezes by with 1-goal win

September 8, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy girls' soccer team fell to 0-2 with a 1-0 loss to the St. Marys girls Thursday afternoon in Punxsutawney.

St. Marys' Caley Keister was the only goal-scorer in the contest.

According the head coach Kevin Hughes, his girls just needed a bit more intensity for the duration.

The Lady Chucks looked strong for the last 20 minutes of the game, but he knows he'll need all 80 minutes out of them as the season goes on.
