PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The bad news for the Chucks boys' basketball team after their 47-45 loss at Elk County Catholic last Friday was they had fallen from a tie for first in the District-IX standings to a tie for fourth, but the good news was they still had three league games remaining. And with three wins, Punxsy would still find itself in good position to compete for the No. 1 seed entering the playoffs.
Tuesday night, Punxsy began that hopeful trek back to the top with a 47-40 victory over the Flying Dutch of St. Marys in Punxsutawney.
ST. MARYS â€” With the Punxsy boys' basketball team hosting the Flying Dutch of St. Marys Tuesday night, the Lady Chucks took to the road to St. Marys with one thing on their minds: Earning a sweep over the Lady Dutch in District-IX play this season.
The Lady Chucks had positioned themselves to do so with a 62-50 home win over St. Marys Jan. 17, and Punxsy reached its goal of a sweep with a 42-36 victory over the Lady Dutch in St. Marys.
