Beavers prove too strong for Chucks

February 9, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — After a crowd-roaring three-pointer at the third-quarter buzzer, Punxsy could not ride the wave of momentum to victory on Friday night.

Rival DuBois proved to be too strong for Punxsy by scoring the game’s final 11 points over the last 2:51 to take away a 50-40 boys’ basketball victory in Punxsutawney.

“It was the same old record,” explained Chucks head coach Dirk Neal. “We had too many missed easy baskets and putbacks. We can’t finish.”

The inability to finish was never more evident then during one stretch in the final period.
