ST. MARYS â€” The saying goes it is tough to beat a team three times in one year.
Tonight, the Punxsy Lady Chucks will test the saying and look to prove it wrong in their case.
After sweeping the season series in games that were not in doubt for most of the contests, Punxsy will try to best St. Marys in the District IX AAA girls' basketball semifinal.
The tip-off will be at 7 p.m. in St. Marys Area High School gymnasium.
The winner of tonight's contest will move on to face Bradford on Saturday, Mar. 2, at Clarion University at a time to be determined.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” After 12 games in three nights, the annual boys' basketball elementary tournament wrapped up with another night of quality court action.
The opening pair of contests saw a close contest before a runaway victor claimed the later fourth- and fifth-grade editions.
After leading 8-5 over the first 10 minutes of play, Alabama scored three of the four second-half points for the 11-6 win over Colorado.
For the second night in a row, Princeton was paced by Andrew Young, who netted 12 points. Young and the Tigers swept past the Ducks of Oregon, 26-7.
