PUNXSUTAWNEY â Sweeps are getting to be the norm on the volleyball court in Punxsutawney. For the fourth time in six home matches, Punxsy swept its opponent by stinging Marion Center, 3-0, on Monday night.
Punxsy (8-2) has now allowed its home opponents to win just four games in six matches for a 15-4 game win total and victories in five of six.
Senior Shayla Brink and junior Emilee States powered the Lady Chucks frontline. Both lined six kills apiece with Brink adding a pair of aces and digs while States had one dig.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â It did not take a last second touchdown pass and two-point conversion Monday night like last Friday's exciting varsity contest.
The Punxsy junior varsity football team ran away with a decisive 38-13 victory over St. Marys in Punxsutawney Monday night.
Dakota Thomas ran a punt back for a score and threw for another, while Perry Arrington and Will Harmon added two rushing touchdowns apiece to help the JV Chucks to a 3-1 record on the year.
After a scoreless first frame, Arrington found paydirt two times in the second quarter.
ST. MARYS â If not by land, turn to the air, and turn to it the Chucks did in a big way. Punxsy quarterback Garrett Zimmerman led the "Air Chucks" for 21 second-half points with the game-winning touchdown and two-point conversion coming with 11 seconds left on the clock to sink the St. Marys Flying Dutch, 21-20, Friday night.
In the shotgun, Zimmerman found Christian Falgout from five yards out to pull Punxsy to within a point, 20-19, to cap an 11-play, 64-yard drive. The touchdown was not enough though, as Punxsy went for the two-point conversion and win.
