Lady Chucks unrelenting defensive attack defeats Lady Crusaders

January 9, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — When the situation has called for it, the one constant of the 2012-13 girls’ basketball season has been unrelenting defense.

The unrelenting, 32-minute Punxsy Lady Chucks' defense was on its game against a solid Elk County Catholic Lady Crusader squad.

The home Lady Chucks forced 27 turnovers, including three in the late fourth-quarter surge — all off Allie Fye steals — when their offense found its mark off the defensive end for a 39-31 victory in District IX League action.

Crusaders crunch Chucks

January 9, 2013

ST. MARYS — Tradition held true on the basketball court on Tuesday night.

The District IX league long-standing tradition of Elk County Catholic's gymnasium being the toughest place to play in the area was a reality, as the Crusaders crunched the Chucks, 50-30, in boys' basketball.

The night started off like many have up to this point of the season for Punxsy.

The Chucks (8-3) lit the scoreboard for nine of the contest's first 11 points for a 9-2 lead. Brandon Mancuso produced two scoring drives into the lane and popped a triple to spur the visiting advantage.

Chuck grapplers fall to strong Raiders squad, 62-16

January 9, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy Chucks grapplers could not handle a talented Brookville Raiders squad, falling 62-16 Tuesday night in Punxsutawney.

"I'm not unhappy in general... It was our fourth match of the year, and we wrestled a powerhouse," said Eric Eddy, Chucks varsity wrestling coach. "I thought the kids wrestled really well. We made some mistakes, but Brookville forces you to make some mistakes. Brookville has a fuller lineup, and it is a matter of us filling up the (wrestling) room (with more kids)," he said.
