Late drive helps DCC edge Punxsy girls

December 19, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Leading for only the second time all night with 1:16 left in the game, Punxsy played stifling defense for the next 1:08 but it turned out to not be enough, as DuBois Central Catholic’s Aundrea Snyder took advantage of a late home defensive breakdown to drive the right baseline for a layup with approximately 7.6 seconds to regain the lead for her team, 34-33 Wednesday night in Punxsutawney.

“DCC set a screen, and we didn’t jump out and get to jump it, and the girl made a nice shot,” said Lady Chucks coach Randy Reitz.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Improvement across the board. The junior Chucks' wrestlers recorded four falls and five wins in nine matches Tuesday afternoon against the Mountain Lions of Altoona in Punxsutawney.

Altoona claimed the match, 68-33, as Punxsy gave the visiting squad eight forfeits on the day.

"We saw a lot of improvement tonight compared to last week," noted Punxsy head coach Bill Burke. "We ended up giving them eight forfeits, and they gave only one back so we surrendered a total of 42 points due to our numbers."
