ST. MARYS â€” After coming back from a game down less than two days prior, the Punxsy volleyball team saw its fortunes reverse on Saturday afternoon in the PIAA sub-regional playoffs in St. Marys.
After capturing wins in the first and third sets, the Lady Chucks found themselves with a 2-1 lead over the Eagles of Obama Academy.
The emotional toll, travel and short amount of down time caught up with the Punxsy roster as Obama Academy prevailed 25-19 in game four before winning the fifth contest and match, 15-10.
CLARION â€” The Brookville Raiders' regular season ended with a 34-6 loss to the Clarion Bobcats Friday at Memorial Stadium on a snowy and dreary night. The Bobcats' (10-0) balanced scoring, and the Raiders (6-4) five turnovers kept Brookville from contending with the Clarion squad.
"Guys are trying too hard and aren't tucking the ball in, and just aren't being careful with the ball," said Chris Dworek, Raiders varsity coach. "Turnovers are killer against anybody, especially a good team," he added.
