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.
âIf we could have had a jumper fall there a couple times, then we could have had a chance,â commented Punxsy coach Randy Reitz. âPlaying a very good basketball team like Keystone will make us a better basketball team.â
