Lady Crusaders stump Punxsy, still undefeated

January 12, 2012

ST. MARYS — Entering Wednesday night's girls' basketball game between Punxsy and Elk County Catholic, something had to give with ECC a perfect 9-0 and Punxsy riding the wave of a three-game winning streak. In the end, the Lady Crusaders did what they had to do to preserve their perfect season with a 47-29 victory.

"We just didn't match their intensity playing on the road against a very good Elk County team," Punxsy head coach Randy Reitz said after the game.

From the start, Elk County jumped out to an early lead, and at the first break, Punxsy found itself in a 12-5 hole.

Pair of Chucks earn All-State mentions

January 12, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Jan. 4, Pennsylvania Football News announced its annual PFN All-State football teams for the 2011 season, and this year, two Chucks — defensive lineman Jacob Shiock and quarterback Garrett Zimmerman — were among those named as statewide honorable mentions.

"Any time athletes are recognized for their hard work, it's a good thing," Punxsy head football coach Alan Nichol said in an interview Wednesday. "PFN is not as media-driven as some of the other awards. They're more based on opposing coaches nominations and statistics. So it's a nice honor for these guys."

The Zak Zone

January 12, 2012

In the blink of an eye last Sunday, the Steelers' season and my hopes of a seventh Lombardi trophy traveling to Pittsburgh came crashing down when Steeler Nation was "Tebowed" on a quick pass that ended the first-ever overtime game in NFL playoff history that wasn't sudden death in sudden death fashion.

Steelers fans across the nation Monday probably complained of the need for a further-revamped overtime system, while Broncos fans probably pledged their full allegiance to the new system — a sign that the way you look at a situation really does depend on whose side you call your own.

When it comes to children riding in cars, safety always comes first.
