Shooting hands go cold, Lady Chucks fall

February 1, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The last time the Lady Chucks basketball team faced Brookville Dec. 15, 2011, the Lady Raiders were just too much for Punxsy's young squad to handle.

The rematch took place Tuesday night in Punxsutawney, and a more confident, experienced Lady Chucks team that has shown much improvement since that first meeting struggled to find it's rhythm early and couldn't overcome the deficit put up by Brookville's steady offense, as the Lady Raiders cruised to a 51-38 victory.

Punxsy edges victory in close mat match-ups

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy grapplers faced even match-ups Tuesday night against Hollidaysburg, and the Chucks edged just one more victory on the mat than the Tigers and earned themselves a 43-28 win.

The Tigers are running a small squad this year, and they knew going into Tuesday night's match-up they'd be giving up four forfeits. But the Chucks were having numbers issues themselves and returned the favor with three. Only seven matches took place on the mat.

Still rolling: Chucks ground Bald Eagle

February 1, 2012

WINGATE — The Punxsy Chucks basketball team traveled to Bald Eagle High School Tuesday night for an out-of-league contest and picked up a 72-63 road win to improve their record to 12-4 this season.

Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal was pleased with his team's performance, as he said the entire team contributed to the win.

"It was just a great win," he said. "We controlled the boards, and the big guys took over. We have players just coming in off the bench and giving their all when they're in there. Individual guys had big games, and all the pieces of the puzzle are really falling together."
