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.

October 1, 2012

ST. MARYS – 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.
