BROOKVILLE â€” For the second night in a row, the Route 36 Rivalry took to the hardwood. The location moved to the north location, but the result remained the same.
After netting the nightâ€™s first 12 points, Punxsy kept the advantage wire-to-wire to prevail, 53-42, over Brookville in boysâ€™ basketball Friday in Brookville.
The Chucks (3-1) would be challenged for only a two-minute brief burst by the Raiders midway through the fourth frame before the visitors regained control the final three minutes.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Just as their elder peers did, Punxsy's junior high wrestlers took to the mats for their first official dual meet on Wednesday evening. Unfortunately for the younger team, the result wasn't quite the same, as the Stingers downed the Chucks 51-30 to earn the victory.
"It was a bit of a rough start for our junior high wrestlers in our first dual meet of the season," Punxsy head coach Bill Burke said. "Marion Center has a nice team with some well-seasoned wrestlers. Although they were missing a few guys for this match, we still didn't match up with them very well at all."
