Chucks down Bison, finish season 9-2 at home

February 16, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — From the very first day of practice this season, Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal said one of the Chucks' top goals was to protect their own house and win their home games this season.

Wednesday night, the Chucks played their final home game of the season and did just that, picking up a 49-37 victory over District IX foe Clearfield to finish the season 9-2 at home.

Punxsy JHers keep rolling with win over Bradford

PUNXSUTAWNEY — In a similar tale to the varsity match that took place after it, the dual meet between Punxsy and Bradford's junior high wrestling teams Tuesday in Punxsutawney was a tale of numbers, a common occurrence for the Chucks this season. But in this case, Punxsy's numbers were better than Bradfords, as the Chucks outdid the Owls both on and off the mats for a 47-15 victory.

With Bradford being a larger school, Punxsy head coach Bill Burke said he was surprised and a bit disappointed to see the Owls' numbers down, as they brought just seven grapplers.

Some weeks when I sit down to write my column, I struggle to find a way to communicate an idea I've been bouncing around in my head and, since it's a sports column, to find a way tie sports into it.

Other weeks, the story itself just falls into my lap and begs me to write about it. This week's column falls into the latter category.

Growing up as a Christian and a huge sports fan, I heard the word "miracle" used in two very different contexts quite often, and the seeming double meaning has caused me to frequently ponder the miraculous over the years.
