PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” When a team cannot put many shots on goal, it is tough to win. The Punxsy boys' soccer defenders were very successful at keeping visiting Karns City to six shots to record a 2-0 shutout on Senior Night at Jack F. LaMarca Stadium.
"That was District-IX caliber defense on the field all night," proclaimed Chucks coach Phil Shenkle to his players after the game.
BROOKVILLE â€” In the next-to-last tuneup for the District IX championship, Punxsy was able to easily handle Brookville, 16-47, in boys' cross country on Tuesday afternoon in Brookville.
"It is not an easy course with a hill for the final mile," explained Chucks coach John Smith. "Our first four had good times."
Punxsy completed its dual meet schedule a perfect 9-0 with the defeat of Brookville.
