PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” If a tennis team allows the opponent eight total games in eight matches, the chances are good for a win. The Lady Chucks gave up those eight games on their way to cruising past the Lady Owls of Bradford, 8-1, Tuesday afternoon.
"The PAHS girls played well tonight," noted Punxsy coach Rose Graffius.
And played well they did from top to bottom. At the top singles, the Lady Chucks' Amber Ward took care of the Lady Owls' Nicole Henderson, 6-2 and 6-0.
DuBOIS â€” In a partial preview of the District IX AA race, Punxsy again showed its boys' cross country running depth to get past Bradford and complete the Tuesday sweep over DuBois.
Punxsy (6-0) pushed across three of the first five finishers against Bradford and saw its fifth and final scoring runner end up two spots ahead of the final Owl for a 26-30 win.
Against DuBois, Punxsy recorded three of the top four spots and five of the first eight runners in a team score final that had a bit more breathing room in a 22-35 win and sweep of the day.
CURWENSVILLE â€” The Chucks no sooner stepped off the bus before they started to pelt the Tide net with goals. Punxsy netted four goals in the opening 12 minutes to post its second-straight boys' soccer shut out with a 5-0 victory at Curwensville Tuesday afternoon.
Senior forward Trevor Peace produced a 'hat trick' with the final three Punxsy (7-3) scores. Ty Zimmerman produced a goal and an assist.
Tanner Evans accounted for the other goal.
Kevin Hughes assisted on the game's first two goals, and Tyler Baer passed the ball for the fourth tally.
