Punxsy wins in full-team effort

January 24, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — All 12 of the players who saw time for the Lady Chucks basketball team Monday night scored at least two points, and Punxsy cruised to a 70-16 victory over the Lady Owls of Harmony in Punxsutawney.

Despite the large number on the scoreboard for the Punxsy, it was a balanced attack, as Emily Horner and Taylor Newcome were the only two Punxsy players to reach double-digits, with 14 and 10 points respectively.

The Lady Chucks scored 46 of their 70 points in the first half and held the Lady Owls to just nine over the first two quarters.

Brookville battles back for win over Punxsy

BROOKVILLE — Although Punxsy jumped out to an early 13-0 lead Monday night against Brookville, the Raiders made some adjustments and battled back before sealing up the 54-52 victory.

Chucks head coach Dirk Neal decided to change up his defensive scheme at the beginning of the game, electing for a triangle and two set-up. The defense worked early, and the Chucks were able to capitalize.
