PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The buzz around the PAHS gym after Punxsy senior guard Alex Magill, the team's only senior, was recognized on her Senior Night before the girls' varsity game against A-C Valley was, "It's a shame Friday wasn't senior night."
That's because Magill hit a go-ahead three-pointer at the buzzer to give the Lady Chucks a three-point victory Friday over DuBois.
Monday night was no less fitting, though, as Magill pulled off the once-in-a-lifetime sort of feat twice in four days, draining a deep two as the clock ticked to zero to give Punxsy a 49-47 win over the Lady Falcons.
HOMER CITY â€” The Punxsy Chucks basketball team went on the road to take on the Bobcats of Homer Center Monday night in an out-of-league contest that proved to be a good tune-up game heading into its final two league games Wednesday and Friday. But the Chucks came away with a 68-64 victory over Homer Center in what Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal called "a full team effort."
Punxsy senior guard Alex Fedigan was sidelined with an injury, forcing fellow-senior Ian Miller into the starting lineup, and Miller proved to be one of four Chucks scorers in double digits.
