Bly boots Owls past Chucks for D-IX boys' soccer title

October 31, 2012

DuBOIS — On a rainy Halloween night, Bradford's Cody Bly turned out to be no treat for the Punxsy boys' soccer team. Bly found the net three times to boot the Owls past the Chucks to claim the District IX title, 3-1.

"We were outplayed. Bradford was the better team tonight," explained Chucks head coach Phil Shenkle. "We did a lot of things very well, but Bradford was just better in the game."

The night started off rough for Punxsy, especially for its goalkeeper Tristan Acre. The junior not only hurt his knee in the pregame warmups but was forced to leave the game three minutes in.

BROOKVILLE — The Karns City Gremlins spoiled the Brookville Raiders football team's Senior Night with a 45-20 win Friday night.

The Gremlins diverse running game gave the Raider defense fits all night, putting up 311 total rushing yards.

"They're fast and we're not," said Chris Dworek, Raider varsity coach. "We had some things open, but penalties hurt us more than usual, missed execution hurt us more than usual because they're tough. They're fast, and it's more painful when you play teams like that," he said.
