NEW BETHLEHEM â€” After suffering a disappointing Saturday night loss, Punxsy turned a potential letdown situation into feeding off the defeat instead.
The Chucks doubled up and took a bite out of the Bulldogs of Redbank Valley, 60-31, on Tuesday night in New Bethlehem.
Brandon Mancuso pumped in three triples and recorded a game-best 15 points. Devin Nicholson joined Mancuso in double figures with 12 points, including a pair of treys.
Forward Garrett Zimmerman missed a double-double by a single point, as he finished the night with nine points and 10 rebounds.
PUNXSUTAWNEY Ââ€” Resilient and tough proved to be the mix Tuesday night for the Punxsy girlsâ€™ basketball team. The Lady Chucks were both but the talented Lady Panthers of Keystone had just enough to fend off the pesky home team, 55-47, in Punxsutawney.
â€śIf we could have had a jumper fall there a couple times, then we could have had a chance,â€ť commented Punxsy coach Randy Reitz. â€śPlaying a very good basketball team like Keystone will make us a better basketball team.â€ť
