ST. MARYS â€” The road is always tough no matter how many more wins you have than your foe before the night begins.
In what turned out to be an even game for the first 24 minutes, Punxsy could not come up with the winning mix in the end at St. Marys.
The Flying Dutch stunned the Chucks, 59-55, in the final moments of the District IX League matchup.
â€śSt. Marys hit some big shots at the end,â€ť explained Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal. â€śWe didnâ€™t get anyone to hit a late shot and committed some unforced turnovers. We just had nobody step up in the fourth quarter.â€ť
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Any basketball double-digit run is good when it is your team scoring the points.
It was the Lady Chucks scoring the points in the final five minutes of the second quarter. Punxsy rattled off 13 straight and 14 of the final 15 points of the opening half and rode the cushion for a 41-35 victory over visiting St. Marys Tuesday in Punxsutawney.
â€śThe bench came in and did a nice job for us. We were able to get a few turnovers and capitalize on the offensive end,â€ť pointed out Punxsy head coach Randy Reitz.
