The numbers can be quite deceiving

Punxsy picks up win, but struggles on the mat

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Although some follow the old adage, "The numbers never lie," Tuesday night's wrestling match between the Chucks and the Clarion Bobcats proved to be a counterexample to the theory, with the Bobcats falling 30-21 to Punxsy despite only losing one match on the mat.

Marred by injuries, Clarion's squad dressed just five grapplers Tuesday, and four of the five earned victories.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Over the weekend, the town of Punxsutawney — more specifically the Punxsutawney Area Community Center and SS.C.D. — hosted 14 different sixth-grade basketball teams, both boys' and girls' for an annual tournament.

Four different Punxsutaw- ney teams participated, and others traveled from Marion Center, Brookville, Penns Manor and as far away as Butler to participate.

No tournament champion was crowned in either division, but each team was guaranteed three to four games to gain valuable experience.

A synopsis of the Punxsy teams' games follows:
