CLARION â€” The road is never an easy place to play, especially when an undefeated foe is your host.
The task will be daunting for the Punxsy Chucks tonight when they face the 7-0 Clarion Bobcats at Clarion Universityâ€™s Memorial Stadium.
The visiting Chucks, though, are hoping the trend of the short four-year football series between still fairly new Keystone Shortway Athletic Conference opponents continues to hold true. Over the past four years, the visiting team has come out on top, including the Bobcatsâ€™ 19-7 victory in Punxsy last fall.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” On normal rest, some foes are a tall task, but on the second of back-to-back days makes them all the tougher.
This was the case for the second time this season for the Punxsy boys' soccer team when facing rival DuBois. After shutting out Karns City last night, Punxsy did not have enough left to face DuBois 20 hours later in a 4-1 home loss on Thursday afternoon in Punxsutawney.
"It was a good hard game. We needed it and to have good competition at the end of the season," said Chucks coach Phil Shenkle.
